Only read the first 3 pages of discussion. Seems to be pretty mixed.
I've only seen the show once when I was in the US. Liked it but I can see what your saying. Can't get it here in Canada yet.
This is what I find wrong with Discovery/TLC/US TV in general - too many shows about guys just doing their jobs. The first couple were OK, the rest are just spin-offs of the same genre. After "This Old House" and "Cops", the rest are just rip-offs.
I did have a DFH 60 minute IPA that a friend gave me and it was quite good. Pretty typical US IPA in my opinion (I'm not a huge fan but they're alright in moderation - too much use of Cascade hops in many that I've had IMO - too much grapefruit aftertaste for me).
Anyway, I will tune in again next time I'm in the States and it's on. Even if it is an hour long commercial for DFH, it's about beer and what could be better than that?
