When the guys from the Discovery Channel contacted us with the idea of trying to recreate history, we thought … why not? Being part of the beer industry means we are somehow connected to one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages. A little while back (ok, about 3,000 years ago) an early form of beer was prepared using basic methods, and as part of the Discovery Channel’s upcoming show “How Beer Saved the World” they wanted us to reproduce a form of this ancient brew.
So Brad set up his pots and pans, the film crew rolled through the gates and away we went. A crazy day of “brewing” was followed by a session at one of the local pubs to see how the brew stacked up against others beers on tap (something we do every Friday really).
It was lots of fun, but you’ll have to wait a while to see the end result as the show will be aired in the US before the Super Bowl on Feb 6th.
