    Thanks for the quick post!

    I missed this episode and was looking for a recap.

    Punkin Chunkin and “Toast” art?

    Cant wait to see it!

    Just to keep the record straight.

    How awesome is Luke’s dad’s toast art?

    Maurice Bennett is not my dad, he is “The Toastman”

    Couldn’t agree more with your assessment. This show is showing signs of life with episode 3.

    I’ve heard stories from several people about Sam’s d-bag/jock/frat boy charm run amuck, but I think it has to be taken account when considering Sam’s persona. The man lives a charmed life and he knows it. I’m just happy that he puts his privilege and success to good use by brewing all those tasty beers. He’s more complex than the show portrays him to be. I’d like to see the show a little bit of his flawed side, but that might be too much for the American viewer to handle.

    At the season episode 3 mark, have you settled into the show?
    I really liked this episode. It gives me hope for the rest of the season. There was some great insight into the brewing process and I loved learning about Epic.

    Do you mind that the show was moved to Mondays?
    I only mind in that my beer club often does tastings at this time.

    What is your take on Bryan Sellers and his “dynamic” with Sam?
    I think they could play that up a bit more, but maybe the dynamic really isn’t all that…er…dynamic.

    How awesome is Luke’s dad’s toast art?
    It’s alright. I don’t know that I would hang burnt toast in my house.

    I think your points about anxious moments are part and parcel to “Reality TV” – its not reality and its not good TV (i.e., not good acting). But I love beer and I love Dogfish Head. They should stick with “How we make beer” but then it probably wouldn’t get primetime airing on Discovery Channel.

    I’m glad its on Mondays now.

    I wonder where I can try the Portamarillo?
