  I found it very entertaining. I had pretty much expected a 60 min DFC commercial, and that's what I got but really enjoyed it. Not a lot of information, but that's ok, the is not really meant to teach brewing. Reminds a good bit of American Chopper. I loved that show till it jumped the shark.

You don't need cable.  Watch it on the internet.

I'm also on dial up. ;)
Get high-speed in the office at the brewery & call it a business expense (because the brewery must have you knee deep in $1000 bills by now - right).

I don't see how he can be an inverse style nazi with such beers like 60min, 90min, World Wide Stout, Olde School Barleywine, etc.  Sure he has a lot of crazy beers, but he knows that he needs to brew some beer according to traditional styles.  And when Sam was approached to do the show Discovery Channel wanted it to be strictly about him and DFH, and Sam said he wouldn't do the show unless they highlighted other breweries.  So, Sam is not just in it for the money - he wants other breweries to get exposure too.

When he first started brewing he brewed the 60,90, WWS and Olde School but has since become an extreme brewer...or the inverse of a style nazi.  So he has evolved into this creative force in the wide world of brewing.

My homebrew club "Delmarva United Homebrewers" holds our meetings at Sam's brewpub "Dogfish Head Brewery and Eats" and I am always eager to learn of the latest and greatest creations at the pub.  Sam uses the pub to "try out" his new recipes. I am always amazed at the unique ingredients and flavors that he infuses into his recipes.

He is an innovator for sure.

Wait, what?

Are you highlighting the diversity of his beers?  You must be, because some of those clearly fit styles (60, 90), while others clearly don't (WWS, OS).  Or am I missing your intent.  I think I get (and agree with) what you're saying, but WWS and OS are clearly out of style, those are extreme beers. :-\

For me, Sam is like the Sarah Palin of the brewing world. Some people love him, some people hate him, but he sure knows how to work a crowd and manage an image. Also you wouldn't want him to be president ;-)

FWIW I like his beer, and if he's getting craft brewing noticed by the BMC masses, I'm fine with that.

Who doesn't like Sam?  I mean really, the guy is just as nice in person as he appears on various shows and interviews. I spent several hours with him on a beer tour and found him genuine.

As far as the show, I've not yet decided. Certainly not what I was expecting...

It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

That's exactly what I thought.
I hope it doesn't turn into him just brewing "theme" beers for corporate clients
the way American Chopper builds theme bikes.
I like the idea of a show called  "Microbrewed Adventures with Charlie P."  ;D
