Craft beer industry charmer Sam Calagione has scored big time. The Dogfish Head Brewery founder will be starring in his own Discovery Channel show, titled BREWED, set to air this fall. According to a release from Beernews.org today, the show will include episodes covering a range of topics on the culture and history of beer. From the release:
Along with archeologist and beer expert Pat McGovern, Sam sets out to recreate “ancient ales” that have been discovered at sites around the world from Egypt to Peru. He travels to Rome to research old world Italian beers as inspiration for a new site in New York with Mario Batali. A visit to New Zealand introduces the idea of making the “first tomato based beer.” And back home, Sam is tasked to come up with a commemorative beer called “Bitches Brew” to celebrate the 40th anniversary release of Miles Davis’ famous recording.
