If the first episode is any indication, Beerland will be full of eccentric characters and communities, indeed. In Santa Fe, Gill visits Cale, a cowboy who essentially operates an illegal bar in his basement; Bobby, owner of a craft beer bar with no address that operates without any government interference; and Andy, the sweet, nervous type who brews with a wild hop varietal that he found in a friend’s backyard (and that, as it turns out, makes for a decent pale ale).

The show sounds kind of gross. I know it's entertainment and they need ratings for ads, but I hate that this sketchy nonsense is apparently being put front and center. It's hard enough convincing people you're not going to poison or blind them without these "outlaws."

Note: Catching up on Experimental Brew (Ep 15), oddly timely to hear about brewers being gimmicky for attention.

Done enuf radio and TV stuff to know that if you don't have editorial control of the end product, you won't recognize yourself. Good call Denny.

They sent an e-mail to the club looking for Brewers. I think we all passed up the opportunity.

It sounds like they approached you Denny.

Anything on Viceland is like a window into a parallel universe where Superman is evil and dreams don't come true in ways you never wanted.

After watching an episode of the first season (I know, my fault),
you made the right decision, Denny. Total crap show.

I've heard from several people that they've been scouring OR looking for someone and so far everyone has turned them down.

It could have been fun... You could play a character nothing like yourself to get famous (i.e. rich) with rubes around America like Duck Dynasty, Larry the Cable Guy, etc.

The difference between them and me is that I have a modicum of integrity.

Are you saying Robertsons don't have integrity?  Wow.

The Robertsons that exist publicly are fictitious beings designed for reality TV and to sell their subsequent ventures. The people they portray don't exist. They have done an exceptional job building and adopting characters and blasting that creation out to promote themselves.

Definitely committed and talented at building a brand. Not sure if I consider that the same as integrity.

Get a crew-cut, stop experimenting, drop the ukulele and take up the oboe. Then blame it on your previously unknown evil twin Kenny Conn.
Hey, it's worked on General Hospital many times.

They approached our club as well... between the hatchet job of the first episode (season?) and the obvious ties to big beer we were pretty well opposed... based on the quote above it sounds like they want to be all mysterious about "What is this homebrewing thing anyway?" to draw in viewers and then make us all look like idiots "Ha ha, these morons think they can brew world class beer in a garage..." Yeah no thanks.

They were looking in LA too. I was approached, but wasn't interested.

They approached clubs in Florida as well.

Maybe I should have said cello.
Don't put down the oboe, it's not very popular because it's a very difficult instrument to learn. And my 15 year old granddaughter is getting quite good on the oboe: college scholarship good.
