It's amazing how many people have come and gone in this hobby since I started to brew.  Most are still with us.  They are just off doing other things. I was off doing other things for while, but I came back.  I am starting to see other people come back to the hobby, some after very long layoffs.

Some are still making beer, but not active online anymore.

Love the beer hunter stuff even more now that traditional brewers are closing/merging/changing etc.  Great history!

I am sorry about that oversight.  I own a smart phone, but I rarely use it to surf the web or read forums.  I use a computer or my Chromebook.

I wish that the Discovery Channel would re-release these videos on DVD.  I wonder if they were recorded in 4:3?

Most likely shot in 4:3

Given that the original footage was shot on film (rather than video)  so many  years ago...most likely in the 16mm format...  it's a safe bet that the aspect ratio of the original footage was indeed 4:3.
However, that aside, if the original film elements were properly preserved, they should yield very high quality without artificial enhancement  if transferred to modern high definition video format for re-release.  One could only hope though that if that is ever done, they retain the original 4:3 ratio and avoid the temptation to crop top and bottom for widescreen, unless it is done with great care and on a shot-by-shot basis.

That was so cool.  He was incredibly ahead of his time.  Luckily, I was able to pick up a copy of the Beer Companion for under $10 at a used book store a few years ago; it is a really interesting read.
