Default Discovery Cancels Brewmasters

It's too bad, even though the show had some minor faults it was still a good thing for craft beer.

Did you see an official statement? I'm interested to read their reasonings behind this.

Not seeing any press releases or info online to corroborate this, nor, since I have them on facebook, am I seeing any info there as well.

The show was only 5 episode, they ran their run. So the show wouldn't technically be cancelled. Not renewed for more episodes maybe.....

I'll keep an eye on on facebook.

I was thinking that might be canceling it since they already changed its timeslot 3 times. Upon further review, I found an article stating that the folks at Dogfish are taking a break...and that the intent was just to have 6 episodes for season 1: that looks like there may still be a possibility for episode 6 to be made in a few months:

Great article....

But really, how long was it before those geniuses realized this???

The Eataly brewpub was originally set to debut in September, but the partners realized that an open-air restaurant would be shut down half the year by inclement weather. So they decided to build a retractable roof to shelter the kitchen and copper-clad three-and-a-half-barrel brewhouse. The anticipated opening is now mid-March.
LOL

Wasn't Vinnie Cilurzo originally part of the Eataly team?

well, discovery is becoming a joke along with all the other channels.. instead of showing shows that are even somewhat educational, they put on this reality tv crap. brewmasters is one of the few shows on discovery i enjoy now that are on that channel

for instance look at American choppers, it went from being about building bike to drama. then they have these other stupid shows that are really making me more stupid watching them.

Plus if one channel now try's something and it succeeds they try and make a type of spin off from it. for instance pawn stars worked on history so why don't we make auction kings (which is compete garbage) IMHO tv is becoming more and more about reality life drama than about entertainment for learning or enjoyment.
