Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione to Star in Discovery Channel Beer Show

DFHSam 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 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.

    Half of the articles on the page deal with beer... why don't you just rename this blog "Young and Thirsty"?

  • U. R. Kidding

    Amen, kick backs for the writers?

    We get a number of critics on our blog who say we spend too much time writing about beer. I feel it's time to address the issue: We write about beer because we have made a decision that the subject is important to our core readership. It has become one of our trademarks at City Paper: our deep and comprehensive coverage of the beer market. We may add a wine blogger to our rotation of Y&H writers, but for now our beer coverage is one of our identifying signatures on Young & Hungry.

    Our beer writers -- Orr Shtuhl, Tammy Tuck, and Bruce Falconer -- are committed to the subject with a passion that goes way beyond the minor compensation they receive from us. They write about beer, in other words, because they love it. They understand the ground rules of writing for an independent newspaper and often, as a result, have to invest their own money to cover the beat adequately. To suggest otherwise is a slap to these dedicated writers, and I will defend them with extreme prejudice.

    If you any questions about our coverage, you can always email me directly at

    I rather enjoy the beer coverage of Y&H--it's one of the best aspects of the blog.

    You tell 'em, Tim--although you sort of confirm Jman's point. It's nice to see how much the beer landscape is changing, and it's great that DC (and DC media) aren't being left behind.

    I'll admit it does seem like a week can't go by without a shill for an event at ChurchKey, but that's what they get for being the premier joint for craft/micro/artisan brewing here. Just wish it was easier to get in there at times 😉

    While I think it would have been exciting that way, the actual details (i.e., other craft brewers will be featured) are pretty impressive in their own right:

    great beer...a lot of people can't wait for the sunday evening show to start... the midas touch is still my favorite , but that punkin ale is a close second . Got another idea for a viking brew...and your cousin Rob should have a clue to it...
    I know...I'm biased but most of my friends believe you have the best beer on the market.
