Michael Jackson's award-winning books have established him as a world expert on beer, whisky, and other libations. He has been twice honored by Malt Advocate Magazine as "Industry Leader of the Year". He was elected the first chairman of the Guild of Beer Writers in Britain and has been honored in France, Germany, and Belgium. He received the first Achievement Award from America's Institute for Brewing Studies, and his "Beer Companion" was the recipient of both the Glenfiddich and Andre Simon "Best Drinks Book" Awards.
