Beer, beer and more beer comes to Discovery, as the network dips into the suds and blows the head off the brewing skinny from an American brewery to learn the ins and outs of concocting the perfect foamy elixir.
Discovery Channel’s newest show, Brew Masters, premiering on Sunday, November 21 at 10 PM.
The series follows Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head Brewery and his partners as they travel in search of exotic ingredients and ancient techniques to produce beers of astounding originality. Attached and below is the release for Brew Masters.
Its cold, its comforting, its beer....but for Sam Calagione, founder of one of America's leading craft brewers Dogfish Head Brewery, beer is a passion, a business and a personal quest for best, most imaginative brews.
Premiering Sunday, November 21 at 10 PM E/P on Discovery Channel, this series follows Sam and his partners in suds as they travel the country and the world sourcing exotic ingredients and discovering ancient techniques to produce beers of astounding originality.
From chocolate to mussels to tomatoes, Sam is constantly pushing his team and himself to innovate and celebrate the amazing world of beer and beer making.
The imagination of the Dogfish Head team is matched only by the fun they inject into every facet of their jobs. Beer tasting meetings in the conference room with co-workers, a bocce ball league in the parking lot, filming original rap videos in the brewery plant, it’s all in a days work for these fellas.
“Brew Masters taps more than just kegs and barrels, it unlocks a fascinating history of beer making, showcasing the ingenuity and passion behind our love affair with those alluring suds and how it played a role in building civilizations,” said Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel.
Not only do you go behind the scenes to learn the craft of beer making, but you will also hit the road for the ultimate beer tasting road trip. Sam sets out to recreate “ancient ales” that have been discovered at sites around the world from Egypt to Peru.
He travels to Rome to research old world Italian beers as inspiration for a new site in New York with Mario Batali. A visit to New Zealand introduces the idea of making the “first tomato based beer.” And back home, Sam is tasked to come up with a commemorative beer called “Bitches Brew” to celebrate the 40th anniversary release of Miles Davis’ famous recording.
“Beer has always been my passion. It is so much more than what you see in the glass. I’m excited to share the diligence," says Calagione
