I came across this on Craftbeer.com.... set your dvrs suckas

Discovery Channel Presents “How Beer Saved the World"



01.25.11
A new hour-long documentary will soon be premiering on the Discovery Channel. Discovery provided the following information on the program. "Did you know that beer was critical to the birth of civilization? That’s right—beer. Scientists and historians line up to tell the amazing, untold story of how beer helped create math, poetry, pyramids, modern medicine, labor laws, and America."
Watch January 30th on the Discovery Channel at 8 pm, PT and 11 pm, ET.
Our friend Horst Dornbush tipped us off to the new show, as he was interviewed several times during its making, and is excited about the show's focus on "the contributions beer has made to the welfare of humanity."
"This show is a must watch for beer enthusiasts," said Dornbush. "People have always benefited from beer, from the Sumerians and Egyptians, to the American Revolution; from the brewing techniques that ensured potable beer (as opposed to contaminated water) in the Middle Ages, to the evolution of microbiology, zillions of lives have been saved because of beer."

Maureen Ogle posted something about it this weekend on Facebook. She's in it. Here's what she posted;

New beer documentary airs Jan. 30th on Discovery. My part in it consisted of being the person who rolled my eyes a lot and explained why everyone else in it was full of s***.
Sounds like it's not going to be all that accurate, more like the old bs that she countered in her book. But still worth checking out. But with an open mind....Except I'm gonna be watching the Pro-bowl.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to DVR this. SWMBO is watching the SAG awards and has taken control of the tv for the night
