Sam Calagione Wishes “Brew Dogs” Great Success

I just had a chat with Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione for a Today.com piece I’m working on.  While the topic wasn’t on the agenda, I just had to ask for his thoughts on Brew Dogs, the new craft beer television show featuring the brew-fueled antics James Watt and Martin Dickie from Scotland’s BrewDog craft […]

Can “Brew Dogs” thrive where “Brew Masters” failed?

. . If you’re a long-term reader of this blog, you know I have a thing against the blokes from BrewDog, the Scottish craft brewers that pumped out such undrinkable, attention-whoring beers like Tactical Nuclear Penguin, The End of History (featuring roadkill stuffed with bottles), and Royal Virility Performance, a beer brewed with Viagra to celebrate […]

Guess Which Brewer is Getting Their Own “Reality Show”?

Not long ago, Sam Calagione’s show Brew Masters was cancelled by the Discovery Channel (or as Sam says, it wasn’t renewed).  The plot soon thickened when iconoclastic chef Anthony Bourdain tweeted that Brew Masters was killed by “Big Beer” who threatened to pull their ads off of Discovery and its sister networks if the show […]

Well this just sucks.  I have it on good authority that Sam Calagione’s Brew Masters has been pulled from the air after just a handful of episodes.  It was good to see craft beer on TV while it lasted I guess.

“Brew Masters” is Hitting its Stride

  Last week, I wondered if “Brew Masters,” the new Discovery show starring Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione, would last. The first show was more infomercial than excitement, and the whole premise felt stale.  Still, I held out hope that the show would be much better once Sam started traveling around the world.  I am happy […]

Will “Brew Masters” Last?

Like many of you, I watched the premiere of Brew Masters last night with a craft beer in hand and a big smile on my face.  And like many of you, I enjoyed the show because I’m a fan of Sam and a major beer nerd.  Even if it was a bit of an infomercial, […]

Just a friendly reminder that Brew Masters, the TV show Don and I were up for (and didn’t get) premieres on the Discovery Channel this Sunday night at 10pm Eastern.  I’ll set my DVR, but will probably be watching in real time, as I’m eager to see how the show turned out. There are also […]
