About the author (2005)

Michael Jackson is the world's leading writer on beer. His Beer Hunter TV documentaries presented a new view of beer as an element not only of civilized social life but also of gastronomy. He introduced the world to the specialty beers of Belgium, and helped inspire the American microbrewery revolution, as well as a generation of beer writers. Jackson's books for DK include The Great Beer Guide, Eyewitness Companions: Beer, and Whiskey: The Definitive World Guide, which won a James Beard Foundation Book Award for Wine and Spirits. Jackson is also a past winner of the Glenfiddich Trophy and the André Simon Award.
