More details coming soon!

A very personal note...
We are probably as enthusiastic about beer as you are - and therefore financed and produced this series over the last three years out of our own pockets. Deliberately with no big studio or TV-station backing it to achieve creative freedom not dictated by commercial decisions. And making such a series on a professional level - with all the crew, travels, equipment, right-clearance, location expenses, guides, etc. - is a significant investment and risk.
We are convinced, that there hasn't been a series that presents that many diverse countries with their unique (beer-)cultures to its audience.
In short: to finalize the second chapter and produce the final part of this trilogy, we need YOUR support as well - simply by watching this program.
If you like what you've seen, please recommend our series to your friends and family, your fellow beer-enthusiasts at your local pub, brewery, or - and especially - on your social media channels. For that, we are eternally grateful!
