Most of you know the New Brew Thursday gang of John, Stephen and Brad and have probably seen some of their episodes. They’re big beer geeks and love to travel around and talk to different beer people and enjoy a variety of brews much like myself.
And like the craft beer community of brewers and brewpubs, we also like to support each other’s endeavors to bring other beer people entertainment and information about the craft beers they love. It’s actually really cool when different beer shows give each other props because ultimately we want to support craft beer.
So last night, after filming the new segments at Stone, I headed to the top secret filming location of New Brew Thursday to shoot their newest episode on the Pints for Prostates event that I have worked very hard to organize. The charity is an important one because of how dangerous prostate cancer is to men and this event is a great way for men to learn more about the dangers of prostate cancer and also enjoy some great craft beers.
I didn’t know completely what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. John’s girlfriend Evie had worked hard to learn and prepare a prostate healthy meal of pork loin, kale and potatoes in a pomegranate sauce which is a prostate healthy food. The guys decided to pair it with The Bruery’s Hottenroth Berleiner Weiss and instead of the commonly used raspberry, Evie made a pomegranate reduction sauce for the beer which was most excellent! So big thanks to Evie for the delicious food!
The shoot went very well. We talked about Destination Beer Show and prostate cancer, the great food and the very good beer. And after we finished, more beers were enjoyed, tweeting was happening and there was much rejoicing.
The episode is slated to air next Thursday June 10th, just nine days before the LA Pints for Prostates event. Make sure to tune in!
