This is very sad for all of us, and I'm sure many a toast was made/will be made in his honor. So what was your choice (will be your choice) to honor such an influential man.

I had a bottle of Ureige Sticke that has been in the fridge waiting for an appropriate occassion. Last night was it. My wife and I split it and sipped it with appropriate reverence. I then when on to consume a bit of my Belgian influenced pale ale. It all seemed quite appropriate.

I made a special trip home in between my full-time and part-time jobs, just to break open one of ohiobrewtus' Hoegaarden Clones, to toast MJ. And whaddayaknow, it was damn fine brew. Only fitting.

I hadn't heard. Was he in bad health or was this sudden. Anyways, it is very sad to hear the news. I will definitely raise one tonight in his memory.

He had something like pancreatic cancer, or so I heard. Not surprising when someone's profession is drinking.

Well, I met him at a Double IPA fest, so I used 3CPA. Not saying I won't toast him again soon: Hop Madness 1-2 Sept.

He had Parkinson's the last 10 years, but that doesn't seem to be related to his death. Nor does it appear to be related to drinking in any way. [Having just lost a friend to pancreatic cancer, I can say that has little to do with drinking either]

One beer doesn't seem fitting enough. I have about 6 bottles of Belgian and north German beer from my last trip. Looks like tonight's the night.

Here's to you

Michael Jackson was THE MAN. I have some Beligian Blond's to toast him with, in honor of his Beligian beer book, the Great Beers of Belgium.
