August 30th 2010 marks the third anniversary of the passing of ‘The Beerhunter’ – Michael Jackson.
While his death was marked with less pomp than the passing of the other Michael Jackson, I suggest that anybody who enjoys quality beer (and why are you here if you don’t enjoy quality beer?) owes a debt of gratitude to the Beer Hunter.
For some forty years he promoted the cause of quality beers, and is credited with helping kick start the American craft brewing movement.
As I wrote here two years ago, the world was diminished by his passing, the world of beer even more so.
So, this evening, if an excuse is needed, settle down quietly with a beer you enjoy and drink a toast to the Beer Hunter.
