encouraging fact from show:

1983 - 40 breweries in the U.S.
now - over 1,400

discouraging admission:

Budweiser is, by far(t), America's "favorite" beer

Jim Koch just claimed to be using "ninja" yeast in Sam Adams Utopias. First Pacman, now Ninja? Are brewers really hung up on old school video games or something? What's next?!?

Just finished watching this - very interesting show. I'm glad they featured Dogfish Head for a large portion of it. Another interesting fact - we still haven't recovered from Prohibition - in the late 19th century, there were over 2,300 breweries in the US. Also, apparently George Washington was a brewer and left his porter recipe in the capitol library - anybody have a copy of that one?

EDIT: Here's GW's recipe (supposedly) - more like a molasses mead than beer:

"To Make Small Beer

Take a large Siffer [Sifter] full of Bran Hops to your Taste. -- Boil these 3 hours then strain out 30 Gall[ons] into a cooler put in 3 Gall[ons] Molasses while the Beer is Scalding hot or rather draw the Melasses into the cooler & St[r]ain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm then put in a quart of Yea[s]t if the Weather is very Cold cover it over with a Blank[et] & let it Work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask -- leave the bung open till it is almost don[e] Working -- Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed."
