Booze hero Michael Jackson died Thursday. This obituary by the AP only recognizes him as a beer critic, which is odd considering he is at least as well known as a whisky expert. He wrote both the Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch and the World Guide to Beer. He went public only recently with the information that he'd been suffering from Parkinson's Disease for 20 years, though he died of a heart attack this week.
Whatever you're drinking this weekend, raise a glass of it to Michael Jackson in recognition of the passing of a legend.
