Saw a commercial for this the other day. Here’s some links:http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/brewdogs-tv-show http://tv.esquire.com/videos/70467-brew-dogs-first-look
Watched the first episode today (taped it from the original airing on Tuesday). They worked with Stone brewery in San Diego to brew a West Coast IPA with sea kelp, rosemary, and scorpion hot peppers. They setup a custom brewery rig in a train car and brewed it during a round trip for San Diego to LA. All in all I found it to be a pretty entertaining show. Definitely recommend checking it out.
A friend showed me the first episode. Pretty cool. :cheers:
Directv doesn’t have Esquire (at least on my tier), unless I pay for upgrade. Gonna find an “alternate” source
I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. My favorite parts were the food/beer pairing information, talking folks through tastings and some of the reviews of local breweries. The whole “let’s design a crazy beer challenge” thing was a little cheesy, but still watchable.
Oh, and if you don’t get Esquire, I think I caught it being run on CNBC or something… I thought it was odd, but worth searching out on other networks.
Not sure if I have that channel or not. I’ll probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
I watched it early Saturday morning on rerun and thought it was pretty interesting. I agree that the whole “brew on a train” thing was a little cheesy but it didn’t ruin the show by any means. The train stuff, along with the beer/food pairings & the local brewery/beer rankings even kept my wife entertained. Which I think is the point of that aspect of the show. You have to be able to keep an audience watching and not everyone that watches is going to be a beer geek. Brewing TV was awesome. I showed it to my wife and she described it as “stupid”. Point is there has to be a balance and, at least for one episode, this show got it right. I hope it sticks.
