Michael Jackson would have 72 today. Happy Beer Birthday. I would love to know what you are drinking right now!
When famed beer writer Michael Jackson died in 2007, he left behind much more than a library of educational books on beer and whisky. The entirety of his archives—including 1,800 books, the contents of 29 filing cabinets, and countless handwritten notes—is now housed at the Oxford Brookes University library.
In the September issue of All About Beer Magazine, Stan Hieronymus takes a peek into the Beer Hunter’s collection and the efforts to preserve his legacy. While the collection at Oxford isn’t available to the general public, we asked former All About Beer Magazine editor Julie Johnson to dig through our own archives and pick her 10 favorite columns by Jackson.
