I recently had the pleasure of of being a panelist for a Twitter party featuring the television show Beer Geeks. Here is a brief description of the Daytime Emmy nominated program,
“BeerGeeks is a show that is all about the world’s greatest beverage: beer! This original show will travel around the country, exploring craft beer from every angle. We will visit famous breweries and meet some of the zany personalities in the craft beer world. BeerGeeks will show the passion of the Craft Beer movement and explore this amazing culture. Join veteran brewmaster Michael Ferguson as he samples the best beer in the country. We hope you’re thirsty!”
The show can be seen on Ora.Tv.
TV With Big Personality
Ora.Tv is an amazing online channel that also features shows from Larry King (Larry King Now), Morgan Spurlock (We The Economy), former Minnesota Governor/Wrestling personality Jesse Ventura (Off The Grid) and Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner (William Shatner’s Brown Bag Wine Tasting). Who doesn’t want to drink wine out of a brown paper bag with William Shatner… Sign Me Up!!!
Every week the Beer Geeks feature a new brewery and this week’s episode/Twitter Party focused on the Odell Brewing Company of Ft.Collins, Colorado. Odell is known for their amazing interpretation of Scottish ales, that includes their signature 90 Shilling Ale and the insanely hop-tastic, 5 Barrel Pale Ale. In the episode they do a cupcake and beer tasting that looks like a little slice of heaven. Pairing the two is completely out of the box and makes total sense at the same time.
Check Out The Episode:
At the Twitter party we asked people what they liked to pair with their beers and we got everything from pizza to smoked almonds and everything in between. It was so funny to see how everyone had their own opinion of what tastes good with beer!
Everyone had a great time and I had a blast discussing good beer with good people. I’d like to thank Beer Geeks, Odell Brewing, TweeParties and Ora.Tv for inviting me to be a part of such a great show!
Remember… Buy Local, Drink Local!!!
