Michael Jackson's "Failing to meet The Ginger Man"

I just stumbled upon this absolutely lovely piece by my late friend Michael Jackson, the beer hunter. His prose is staunchly direct and simple, yet so nuanced and vividly evocative. 

Jackson gets credit for sparking the microbrew revolution (and for informing Belgians that their beer's great art...until he said so, they'd had no idea), but he never got the recognition he deserved as a writer beyond niche. If you'll read the above I think you'll agree that he was really something.
