A Toast

michael_jackson_beerToday beer drinkers are raising their glasses in a toast to Micheal Jackson. No, not Micheal Jackson the singer. Micheal Jackson was an English writer who laid the groundwork that shaped our modern beer culture into what it is today. He viewed beer as more then a beverage. To him beer was what shaped cultures. We owe our modern classification system for beers to him, and we owe him a lot for bringing Belgium’s and other beers back into mainstream USĀ beer culture. He died in 2007, and would be 62 today. Happy Birthday Micheal. Cheers!
