Beer master, 65
Michael Jackson, 65, a leading world beer critic who praised the brews of Belgium and acknowledged he would never be as famous as "that Michael Jackson," has died.
Mr. Jackson, known as "the beer hunter," died Thursday of a heart attack at his home in London.
"He was simply the best beer writer we've ever known," said Tim Hampson, chairman of the British Guild of Beer Writers. "He told wonderful stories about beer, breweries and faraway places. He told the story of beer through people, and he was humorous and erudite at the same time."
