Beer Hunter: The Movie

Just found this on Facebook! I really miss the Michael Jackson! I didn’t know a movie was being made. Fall 2010! Woohoo! I can’t wait!

Beer Hunter: The Movie

Michael Jackson, beloved beer journalist, inspired thousands of brewers and beer enthusiasts with his books and television series, “The Beer Hunter.” He achieved cult status in the U.S., but many don’t realize his fame within the world of whiskey writing and tasting.

Filmmaker J.R. Richards traveled extensively with Michael throughout the United States and Europe, filming Michael as he got the story behind the world’s greatest beer and whiskey. Through this footage and interviews with leading brewers and beer enthusiasts, we are treated to an intimate picture of Michael: his enigmatic personality, his extraordinary life, his remarkable contributions, and his secret struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Set to release in the fall of 2010 in conjunction with the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, proceeds from the film will benefit the National Parkinson’s Foundation, and the complete library of edited footage will be available to the public on DVD and online at Feel free to contact us to make a tax-deductible charitable donation to support the film and the Parkinson’s Foundation, and feel free to contact us with your footage, photos, and memories of Michael.

Investment Advice…

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1000.

With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have
$49.00 left.

If you had purchased United Airlines, you would have nothing left.

But, if you had purchased $1000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
the beer, then turned in the cans for recycling, you would have $214.00..

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle.

This is called the 401-Keg Plan.
