David and I only got to meet him once at GABF in 2000. He did come by Palmetto many years ago as well. If you’ve never seen the “Beer Hunter” go rent it now (it’s only vhs to my knowledge- always wanted them to redo it to DVD). Wow, I can’t believe it, a true loss.

“Hello, my name is Michael Jackson. No, not that Michael Jackson, but I am on a world tour. My tour is in pursuit of exceptional beer.”

We raise a pint to Michael Jackson!
