Brewing TV lands in the Bay Area for a whirlwind 4 days of production

brewing TV at Golden Gate bridgeDawson and Jake cut an intro at our first stop.

Last Thursday the boys from Brewing TV landed in San Francisco for 4 days of production for future episodes. I was honored to be able to help them out on Thursday and Friday. Our time was well spent, by Friday afternoon, they had already bagged 4 brewer interviews, 2 homebrewer interviews (one who has gone pro), and one distinguished beer writer. Their weekend activities consisted of more interviews with Heretic Brewing, homebrewing with the Brewing Network, and guest appearances on the Sunday Session. Makes me tired reminding myself of all this but great times indeed and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
For now, here are a couple shots of the crew and a couple shots of interviews. There are plenty more photos to post down the road. Keep an eye on brewingtv.com for episodes to start airing sometime in February. I’ll try and post in conjunction.

Quick note: first my apologies for laying low the past few months. I guess after 3 years of posting stuff up here I just ran out of steam. While I thought often about what I should do with this website, I was reminded by my time with the BrewingTV boys on why I do this stuff.
It’s not about the beer. If it was, we would all be sitting in our houses drinking beer by ourselves. It’s about the people you meet through beer. I contemplated this during my time off from posting. I have met a bunch of really great people through this blog, one fine example of this is below and so I return:
