Beer: UK vs Belgium on TV
« on: December 27, 2012, 10:01:12 AM »
I don't know how many of you can get the UK's Channel 4, but this might be worth watching if you do: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/jamie-jimmys-food-fight-club/episode-guide/series-1/episode-4

As I understand it, they got 3 judges for the "competition:" one Belgian, one Brit and an impartial American. I heard the American judge is a drunken idiot.

Is it Zane Lamprey?

They should have made the British judge Carl Pilkington.

Lol! That was exactly what I thought when I read the initial post.

Sorry to revive an old topic, but I came across this:

It's the full show. It's a bit ridiculous, but there's some nice stuff to look at, especially if you've never been to Belgium. The competition bit starts around 38:45. And you're right. That is NOT Westmalle Tripel.
