Yup, Untappd is hitting the small screen with a travel show hosted by Kenny Gould from Hop Culture. Starting in Pittsburgh…
Next month, BrewDog takes to the small screen. Will it be able to contain their hijinks?
Here is the 411, ““Brew Dogs” premieres September 24 at 10 p.m. It stars Scottish “beer evangelists” James Watt and Martin Dickie, who own the UK’s fastest-growing brewery. James and Martin have come to America with a vital mission: to prove that the drink of the masses doesn’t need to taste mass-produced. In each episode, they will visit a different American beer town, celebrate distinctive craft beers and create their own locally-inspired draft.”
One of their stops along the way is the fabulous Belmont Station in Portland. I am anxious to see how they view one of my favorite beer locales.
When I saw this come through the beer blogosphere, my first thought was about damn time. Blogging in general is somewhat sneered upon and beer bloggers get a share of that disdain too. But this might actually get people to see at least one of us in all three dimensions and humanize the lot of us a little. So if the video moves you, then head to Kickstarter and donate a dead president or two.
