    Surprised there wasn't a thread about this... anyone watching this?

    Dr. Greg Zeschuk, one of the co-founders of Bioware (Star Wars: The Old Republic, Mass Effect, & KOTOR amongst others for video game fans) has quit the company he co-founded and taken to the road visiting breweries. Greg is an Austinite and has begun his series visiting Austin craft breweries. So far they've posted Q&As with the brewers of Twisted X & Thirsty Planet with coming episodes with Adelbert's, Austin Beerworks, & Jester King. I'm guessing after he's done with Austin, he'll be moving onto different cities.

    Twisted X:

    Thirsty Planet:

    Those are very good and interesting...high quality for internet production! I liked the Twisted X one because it helped me understand their idea better. It's hard not to be quick to judgement on all the new breweries popping up in Austin. I still don't know that I will want their beers often, but I love the market they are trying to reach and the concept behind their beers. Cheers to them for trying to reach a market virtually ignored by craft brewnicks.

    This is a very well produced series. Production values are TV worthy.

    These are getting better and better. I've really enjoyed the last three, but the Real Ale episode is very entertaining and informative.

    Really really enjoying this series. I think the Real Ale episode has been my favorite thus far just for the aspect of delving into the Austin beer crash of the late 90s.

    I'm pretty sure it would be my life's dream to create one of the best game studios there is and then go on to visit breweries as a living.

    I just got lost in this video, and the Funkwerks Saison in my glass, and watched this whole video. Great stuff....

    Greg's doing some great stuff. I had the pleasure of being on one of his upcoming (currently secret) shows.
