Jackson, who had Parkinson's disease, died on Aug. 30 at the age of 65. He was a journalist by trade, but his appreciation of good beer and of disappearing traditional styles compelled him to research and write "The World Guide to Beer," first published in 1977. He traveled the globe, tirelessly researching and updating the "World Guide," making a TV special called "The Beer Hunter," and writing many other books about whiskey and beer. One of his best known, "The Great Beers of Belgium," put that country's traditional brews on the map.
The Englishman considered beer as complex and as deserving of respect as wine; his enthusiasm and appreciation of styles old and new endeared him to brewers around the world. Source
