If you have a Kindle, the companion book by Charlie Bamforth is free today on Amazon.

Sweet!  I really wanted this book, despite the perpetuation of the misquote in the title.  Downloading now . . . ;D

<edit>Anyone know of any other good free beer books for the kindle?

damn - I started watching it last night at 11PM, but I made it all of 10 minutes or so into it and crashed.  It was good (what I saw of it).

I'm sure they will re-air it.

My wife called it mildly entertaining with some facts thrown in.  Some of the facts were true.

i haven't watched it yet, I have it on the DVR.  Thanks for the warning that it's not that accurate, my wife won't want to watch it with me since I'll be complaining at the TV. :)

I called it an hour long MillerCoors infomercial/PR show.  Plenty of product placement in there.

Drew - thanks for the heads up on the Kindle version of Bamforth's book and the reader.

Good to know.  But it's still a show about beer on TV, I like that :)

I watched some of it and thought the same thing.  I guess somebody had to pay for the production.

The discovery Channel web site only lists it on 1/30/2011.

We'll have to wait and see if they show it again.

I have a Kindle, so I'd forgotten about that. Thanks for adding it.

And a reminder, it's free today only (1/31). In addition, Amazon usually ends free offers when a certain number are gone, so don't wait!
