The web has been abuzz this week with accusations that “Big Beer” threatened to pull ads from the Discovery Channel if Brew Masters was kept on the air. Brew Masters stars Dogfish Head’s Sam Caligione, who takes viewers across the globe in search of exotic ingredients for his beers.
Other sources have since confirmed the cancellation. Five episodes have aired, though a sixth episode of Brew Masters focusing on a New York rooftop brewpub involving Caligione, may still air when the eatery opens this summer.
Anyway, if you got hooked on Brew Masters, you’ll appreciate Brew Minions, a parody from the guys at Ska Brewing.
It’s 22-minutes long, which is too damn long. It could use a good edit. But Caligione, who is the butt of many of the jokes, was good-natured enough to make a cameo in the video, and it’s worth checking out.
