There’s a lot of argument these days over who did or didn’t build this or that, but “Dirty Jobs” star Mike Rowe is sure of one thing — regardless of who built America, there’s a lot of alcohol mixed into the mortar of its foundation.
Tonight (Sept. 19) Discovery Channel premieres the first of three episodes (the next two air on consecutive Wednesdays) of “How Booze Built America,” in which Rowe traces how beer, wine and spirits figured into the creation of the United States. Read More...
I’ve known Mike Rowe forever, but it’s not just because we’re friends that I offered to help him film some do-it-yourself “promos” for his new show How Booze Built America (airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. E/P).
It’s because the series ROCKS. It really does. I wouldn’t just say that, either. I mean, anyone who knows me can tell you that I’m a TERRIBLE liar.
So, I’d say two things. First, you should REALLY check out How Booze Built America, airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
And second, you should let Mike Rowe tell you — in his own words, and on his own time, through my own personal video camera — why he’d love for you to join him.
Mike is on The Jeff Probst Show, Thursday, September 20, (check local listings for time/station)
Paul Revere rode to a tavern on his midnight ride and Washington distilled his own whiskey. The new three-part Discovery series, hosted by Mike Rowe and premiering at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, looks at alcohol as a key ingredient in the cultivation of American culture.
mrW HQ asked our very own mrW Tradesmen and school teacher, Kathy Ericson, if she would give us her thoughts on the premiere episode of Mike’s new 3 part series “How Booze Built America”. She was kind enough to watch a special sneak peek and give us a quick review. Sounds like an interesting new show! Grab some popcorn, your favorite beverage, frosty or not, and watch How Booze Built America airing September 19th at 10 pm (PT) on the Discovery Channel. Feel free to share your comments too.
I’m sitting here with my devoted family members (a.k.a. two teenagers and a husband) and a cold, frosty beverage (thought this would be appropriate), and we have just finished watching a special sneak peek of the first episode of “How Booze Built America”. I must say that I am exhausted. What a whirlwind, roller coaster ride through 145 years of early American history told from a hyperactive, unique perspective. I loved it. Read More...
