RIP: The Beer Hunter

From Reason Magazine:

Michael Jackson, who died last week at the age of 65, made a career of sharing his enthusiasm for the world's myriad beer styles with people who were accustomed to the bland, indistinguishable lagers that dominate the U.S. market. Eventually enough of them shared his enthusiasm to support a microbrew revolution that has brought real diversity to bars, restaurants, and grocery stores throughout the country.

Farewell oh mighty Beer Hunter. Your service to your country is duly noted and much appreciated. I raise my glass in your honor.
