Michael Jackson's Eyewitness

Eyewitness Companions: BeerMichael Jackson's newest (and final) book is appropriately entitled Beer. It is published by Dorling Kindersley, as part of its Eyewitness Companions series.

I purchased a copy a few weeks ago, but have only given it a time-constrained cursory look. The clerk at the bookstore expressed intrigued surprise that the Eyewitness series now included a book on beer.

Considering Beer's author and editor, I should, and will, read it enthusiastically - as should you.

Stan Hieronymous, a beer author himself, took the time to do so, and reminds us why.

Geeky observation: On the cover above, the two specific beers appear to be, I believe, Charles Wells and someone's old ale. On the the cover of the edition I purchased, they are, instead, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale and a handpump of Fullers ESB.
