Brew Masters Still Alive?

There is a ton of internet rumor swirl about the possible cancelation of The Discovery Channel’s “Brew Masters” featuring Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagioni. The short and skinny of it? The show’s initial schedule called for six episodes, five have been broadcast and the sixth is in the works due to a construction delay to Eataly New York, to which Sam is co-partnering up to provide an onsite cask brewery. The fate of a second season is yet to be determined, but the sixth episode should be released sometime soon with a possible mini-marathon of the first five as a promotional ramp up. This article for The Washington Post’s All We Can Eat Section does a great job clarifying the status of the series and events on the Dogfish Head horizon.

Set Your DVRs for “Brew Masters”

I realized while recording material for future episodes of Living Proof that not everyone who has been or is planning to watch “Brew Masters” is aware that the show has already changed nights twice.  It debuted on Sunday and the third episode aired the Monday right after the second episode.  The next episode will fall on a Thursday.  As annoying as this is, it is a good reminder to use the series subscription feature on your DVR to lock the show in, now, so as not to miss an episode.

Also, I saw the schedule changes via Dogfish Head’s Facebook page.  If you are on Facebook, it is worth liking that page as well as the one for the show itself so you don’t miss any updates.

Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head to host Brew Masters on Discovery Channel

What more can I say!?! I am super excited about Brew Masters, a new series from Discovery Channel. The first book I bought on home brewing was Sam Calagione’s Extreme Brewing and I have been brewing beer and making mead ever since. Sam brings excitement and curiosity to the fine art of beer making. His tireless efforts to educate and promote the virtues and diversity of handcrafted ales with high quality ingredients stands in stark contrast to the macro-beer mentality of less flavor for less money. Let the agribusiness bean counters beware: The beer wars continue and our bet is on the micro-brewing gunslingers such as Sam.
