More drama in the beer world. Dogfish Head's reality show "Brew Masters" has been cancelled. Anthony Bourdain has claimed that "Big Beer" threatened to pull advertising from the Discovery Channel if they continued to air the show. For those of you unfamiliar with Bourdain, he's like a punk rock Rick Steves.
Any thoughts? Is Bourdain just talking out of his boney ass or is there something to it? Is a show about a microbrewer (albeit a large and well-known one) really enough of a threat for "Big Beer" to threaten a cable network over?
