In Passing

It seems odd to think of people who could become tall tales in this day and age.  Rarely do we think of someone who could become a Paul Bunyun or a Johnny Appleseed.  The thing is usually these legends are based on the life of a real person, someone whos life grew so large that their legend lived on after their passing.  Or we could spend more time focusing on things instead of people that we create legends out of products …

But I digress.  That is something for a different day.

Today marks the passing of Michael Jackson (not that one, this one).  He left us behind on August 30, 2007.  He was a pioneer of beer writing and evangelism that set a high standard for others to follow.  The man spent thirty years teaching beer and beer history, reminding us of what we might lose. 

It wasn’t that long ago that I delved through the Great Beers of Belgium.  Aside from a great guide for the beers themselves a fantastic source for the hows and whys in the creation of the beers. 

Take some time on this holiday weekend to check out a legend that only recently left us.  It will be time well spent.

Time for a pint…
