Internationally, the writings of Michael Jackson have been an acknowledged inspiration for many producers and marketers of specialty beers. In a new text, with updated maps, and more than a hundred new photographs, he places in context beers great and small the world over. Jackson's definitions of beer styles are used by academic institutions. He describes the bouquet and palate of beers more thoroughly than any other writer. No one has visited more breweries in more countries. Jackson talked to brewers about their intentions and examined their production methods before applying his judgement to the finished product. Often, they consult him. His advice has been sought by the world's largest brewers and many of the smallest.
