Didn't miss much. It was Ok back in December and again at the start of the month, but the announcer was awful and some of the facts were "off."

It was pretty cool, but nothing you guys don't already know. Although I did learn that the "Urquell" in Pilsner Urquell is pronounced "irk well".

Good interviews with the guys at Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, and some small shop named Anheuser something...

That's just a short clip. I don't have Discovery Channel so is there anywhere I can watch the whole episode on-line?
