America is a nation of hop heads, what do you expect? Besides Sam Calagione has a lot of camera face time considering Beer Wars. I thought the show was going to cover the history of beer making and such. I expect they'll talk about Dogfish Head but I expect more from the Discovery Channel so I'm hoping it's a really in-depth show covering the history of Trappist ales, beer legends like Pierre Celis, Charlie Papazian, etc.
My only hope is that he isn't going to get up in front of the camera and introduce something to Joe TV Watcher that has been around for ages, and claim to have invented it or something. I see that a lot in TV shows, like the guys with the tesla coil in America's Got Talent. A bit
but shunting electricity through chainmail is not a talent, and it's nothing new.
