With that type of talent, you have to expect that are all destined to move on to bigger and better things.
I don't see any point to speculating about the parting of ways. It's easy to imagine yourself in their shoes and draw the conclusion that some greedy soul-less corporate force is to blame. The fact is, we don't know that, and it's none of our business anyway.
There's no reason for this to affect your loyalty to NB. If you have other reasons, fine, but lets not forget who was responsible for bankrolling BTV in the first place.
If it is indeed over, yeah, that sucks, but I am forever grateful to NB and the original spirit responsible for getting me into the hobby.

Is this actually true? I may have just imagined it, but I was under the impression that BrewingTV was started independently by Jake and Dawson and then they joined up with Northern Brewer at some point along the way. Did I make that up?

Maybe those of us not in the loop (all of us) should wait for Chip or DonO to chime back in on the thread. Both have quelled all the chatter before by telling us all the real story, I'm guessing we'll hear from them both again.

To the guy above... I've never had any loyalty to NB. As stated above I dislike their store(s) and don't shop there. It's not about this or anything else other than that I don't care for their store(s), I've never liked their store and have only shopped there twice. I am, however, a supporter of BTV and hope these rumors (that's all they are at this point) aren't true. If they are, I will still continue to be a supporter of the guys that brought us that show in their future ventures.

I'd like a link to THAT! So far nobody has even hinted at the real story. Just the last page of the book... nothing of substance.

Not that it's any of our business. But even the most die-hard drama-haters among us want the juicy details to this one.

Read back in this thread. Both Chip and Don Osborne have posted about BTV. No one's going to tell you anything about anybody's personal reasons for things, but one of those guys could probably tell more of the story than "Some guy on some forum said his friend who works at NB...."

Nope, which is what we'd all secretly love to know. But it's probably for the best, since the silence = left on bad terms with tension between them.

Oh well, hopefully all 3 make a return in some other way. Hell, you can make good money with a very successful YouTube channel, maybe they could even do that. These guys inspired me to get back into brewing after a long depressing hiatus of wheat/gluten intolerance. I never would have started reading the forums, discovered Clarity-Ferm, and started brewing again without stumbling upon their show on my Roku.

Any chance of a reunion episode. Maybe Mike and Jake could update us on what they're doing now? Does anyone know what they're up to? Just curious.

Happy Brew Year

BTV is dead in the water. Chip has left NB as well.

Chip's new venture.

"Chop & Brew is a blog and webshow about life’s great food and fermentations. A large focus will be on homebrewing of all sorts – extract, partial mash, BIAB, and all-grain; ales, lagers, and experimental brews. C&B will also feature and highlight other home fermentations such as wine, mead, sake and kombucha. And we’ll also talk about cooking, barbecuing, grilling, roasting, smoking, curing, freezing — and the spaces wherein food and fermentation meet."

Sounds to me like Chip has picked up the BTV torch. I will definitely be following that blog.
