    What exactly are you looking for? General beer coverage or home brewing?

    Brewing TV (now mostly defunct) was a great home brew based web show that covered a TON of real estate on beer.

    Actually - I'd recommend that more BA's get to know the home brewing side of beer. You don't have to actually brew if you don't want to but I think the things learned there are invaluable to appreciating great beer.

    Once you know how it's constructed, what things affect what flavors etc - even rudimentary knowledge - I feel that helps me appreciate the commercial and brew pub offerings just that much more. Pick up the occasional Brew Your Own magazine or Zymurgy at Barnes and Noble. Or watch Brewing TV, subscribe to some home brewer youtube channels like Don Osborn or Michael Dawson - just to be around the culture a bit.

    I think it's helpful for the overall hobby.

    I am open to any suggestions at this point. Homebrewing is not my focus, but I will watch/listen to the topic to learn.

    ill be starting one up soon, i have 10 years in television and video production experience, after hours acess to the tasting lounge bar that i have 6 rotating taps on at work for a set. right now im picking up cameras and revamping my editing set up to deliver the highest quality product.

    you guys tell me what you want to see and ill cover it for sure. id like to do a weekly show but it may end up being bi-weekly as i have other editing projects coming up as well

    Not a TV show but I really enjoy watching the reviews on BeerGeekNation.com . Chris Steltz does a great job and the production values are pretty good. Unlike a lot of the youtube beer reviews I seen.

    Also not a "show", but rather video reviews - but I'd highly recommend The Beer Temple (www.craftbeertemple.com). It's run by a guy out of Chicago who now (as of a few weeks ago) runs his own bottle shop. Great guy, funny, very smart, and excellent reviews. Pretty we'll produced also. Cheers!

    BeerSmth has podcasts and a decent video library. Some interviews with brewers, etc. A good one features Jason Perrault who knows a thing or two about hop processing. So a pretty good mix, not just home brewing vids. Decent newsletter too, but can get a little annoying with recycles, repeats, and shilling to buy the brewing software.

    New Brew Thursday over in California has a fun group of guys with lots of guests and beer. They review a new beer (or two) every Thursday and are quite knowledgeable about beer. Here is their homepage: http://www.newbrewthursday.com/
