In what seems like ages ago, I worked at Discovery Channel in their now defunct interactive media department. Looking at the titles at the last link I realize I worked on most of them. Two of the titles were called The Beer Hunter and World Beer Hunter. Both of these titles were created with British writer Michael Jackson (I know, an unfortunately similar name to some pop star). This man knew more about beer than almost anyone else on Earth, and had a great sense of humor. There’s no one I would have loved to have a pint and talk about beer with than Mr. Jackson.
Sadly, I just learned that he passed away. My thoughts go out to his family, friends and mates at his favourite pub. The world of beer has lost a great proponent. Tonight I will have a pint of Boddingtons in his honor.2 Comments | Catergorized: food-drink games life memories
