Beer Hunter’s book wins Beard award

Congratualtions to Michael Jackson (aka The Beer Hunter) for winning the prestigious James Beard book award for Whiskey : The Definitive World Guide.

It won in the wine and spirits category, besting the much talked about Emperor of Wine.

Whiskey will remind you a little of Jackson’s Beer Companion, which we always thought should have won a similar award. Problem is that the publisher didn’t nominate it.
