I'm impressed at how politically correct this panel's responses are.

With all of these questions relating to BMC beers I don't think that I would have been able to restain myself from getting in at least one slam on BMC. Of course the fact that they're in Milwaukee and that there are folks from the 'M' in BMC on the panel kind of restricts that.

I would have lost it when the host asked why Americans drink their beer so cold.

Yeah, but remember this is geared towards the person who doesn't know anything about how their beer is made (and if they did they wouldn't be drinking bmc)...It ain't basicbrewing radio that we're listenning to.

For a generic show it ain't bad...I give Ira kudos for doing this. It's a heck of a lot more in depth in some ways than the "Good Eats" brewing episode.

Well, if you know nothing except for what Coors tells you, then it may be shocking to hear that.

I quote loosely:
"Coors lite is frost brewed, as low as 34 degrees, aged cold, put into kegs and bottles cold. Why? Because we know you love cold beer."

I literally laugh every time I hear that commercial.

It was basically the stuff you get to hear on a tour at BMC. Initially I thought it was 2 hrs and based on other Science Friday show's, which went much deeper into their subject, I expected much more from this show. At least a run-down on now beer is brewed.

So I'm kinda disappointed by this.

Todays Science Friday show they were in Wisconsin talking about different things that have to do with the state. They talked about pollution of the Great Lakes for a while, some other state issues and then did the segment about beer brewing. Unlike in-studio episodes of Science Friday these were round table segments with a live audience.

The lady from Siebel pissed me off the most. She basically kept saying come and pay us and we'll tell you more information. It was pretty worthless for her to be on there.

I would be surprised if wasn't Politically Correct, being that it was on NPR
