Best in Craft Beer: Brewmasters, Dogfishead, and the Discovery Channel

sam calagione dogfish head Best in Craft Beer: Brewmasters, Dogfishead, and the Discovery ChannelEach week on Brew Masters, Sam Calagione, maverick, family man and entrepreneur owner of Dogfish Head Brewery travels across America and around the globe as he explores new ingredients and techniques and collaborates with other craft brewers to come up with the next great brews. Every Sunday at 10 pm E/P.

BITCHES BREW

Premiered Nov. 21 at 10 pm E/P Sam and his brew team at Dogfish Head collaborate with Sony Records to create a new fusion beer in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the classic Miles Davis’ album, “Bitches Brew.” With a very tight deadline, they must formulate, tweak, produce and ship 50,000 bottles of custom beer.

CHICHA

Premiered Sunday, Nov. 28 at 10 pm E/P Sam heads to Peru to explore an ancient corn based brew called Chicha. Since he’s always looking for authentic brews, Sam decides it’s worth following the ancient recipe — including chewing up the corn to naturally speed fermentation. So it’s all hands on deck in Delaware when the Dogfish staff is enlisted to use their own saliva to brew their newest craft beer.

PUNKIN & PORTAMARILLO

Premieres Monday, Nov. 29 at 10 pm E/P Sam travels to New Zealand to make an indigenous brew for Beervana, the annual craft-brewing competition. Meanwhile, at the Milton brewery, fears of dumping a significant amount of Punkinâ Ale loom when it ends up in the wrong type of glass bottles.

GRAIN TO GLASS

Premieres Monday, Dec. 6 at 10 pm E/P When a company approaches Sam about making a beer out of cedar scraps salvaged from their hand-made surfboards, Dogfish jumps at the chance to create their first “cedar-fied” beer. But, the team faces a major setback when 9,000 gallons of their signature beer, 120 Minute IPA, gets flagged by Quality Control.
