    Was on The Lost Abbey site and noticed they had an announcemnt for a filming of a new TV show called "Beer Geeks."

    Beergeeks.tv synopsis:

    In each weekly episode host Michael Ferguson, a pioneer and veteran of the craft beer world, (Director of brewing operations and beer training for BJ's restaurants) will bring viewers along on a voyeuristic, inclusive and immersive road trip into the heart of the craft beer universe. Each episode will feature the inside story of the making some of the world's most unique, interesting, even outrageous and bizarre brews.
    We'll see what they're doing, what ingredients and techniques they're using, and then we'll take their brews from tap to table, cooking with beer, and pairing meals with beer. But wait, this series doesn't live just in the brewery. We'll find ourselves at hop farms, berry brambles, pumpkin patches, caves, maple syrup sugaring houses, archaeological sites, monasteries and much more - a smorgasbord of locations that all lead back to the craft beers we're making.

    Based on the trailer (if you watched it), what do you think?

    I've seen the original version when it was just focused on Minnesota beer and while they gave it a good shot, I think I'll like the changes. Glad their focusing on breweries outside the region, not that I don't love what is happening in Minnesota in regards to beer.

    They couldn't decide between Andrew Zimmern and Garrett Oliver so they picked this guy.

    I can dig it.

    I'm guessing Food Network only because it said from the creators of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives...

    Same here, I think I've watched Modern Marvels brewing about 10 times.

    I hope Tomme explains the science of bottle conditioning ;)
