TravelChannel.com Airs Beer Web Series "Microbrew Madness"

Just in time for Oktoberfest, today www.TravelChannel.com launches a new short-form web series “Microbrew Madness” – a spirited journey across America to discover some of the nation’s best craft breweries. Each of the 16 six-minute webisodes on tap features one of four hosts: Lori Griffis (TravelChannel.com’s "Girls Gone Bayou"), Ewan Porter (Australian pro-golfer and commentator), Olivia Speranza (TravelChannel.com’s “Terminal Bliss at SFO”) and Ryan Van Duzer (TravelChannel.com’s “Bike Tour of California Wineries”).

Griffis, Porter, Speranza and Van Duzer take viewers to different regions of the United States, tasting some of the top local microbrews in 16 different cities. The cities visited include: Atlanta, Ga.; Boulder, Colo.; Chicago, Ill.; Cleveland, Ohio; Grand Rapids, Mich; Hermosa Beach, Calif.; Lakewood, N.Y.; Loveland, Colo.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Nashville, Tenn.; Portland, Ore.; San Antonio, Texas; St. Louis, Mo.; Tampa, Fla.; Tempe, Ariz. and Winston-Salem, N.C. They speak with chefs and brew masters, learn special food pairings and drink in the history to discover why each microbrewery is a can’t miss destination.
