Today marks the fifth anniversary of the passing of Michael Jackson (The Beer Hunter), perhaps the man most acknowledged as the father of the ‘Beer Renaissance’.
Here at The Brew Club, we have a tradition of toasting his life with a drink.
I for one, will be raising a pint of Sam Smiths Old Brewery Bitter, one of Michael’s favourite English beers.
Although, as in this picture, a bottle of Rodenbach Grand Cru might also go down well.
And you can still see the Beer Hunter videos he made back in the eighties here: http://vimeo.com/user7698137
Cheers Michael, your spirit lives on.
