Brewing TV - Episode 30: Heretic Brewing Company

 

Original postdate: February 11, 2011

Features:
- Update on Heretic Brewing Company
- BTV Tasting Panel with Jamil Zainasheff

In November 2010, homebrew guru Jamil Zainasheff broke the news to Brewing TV:  he was embarking on the journey of opening a commercial brewery called Heretic Brewing Company in the East Bay area of California. Three months later, the brewery is nearly ready to produce beer. Join Brewing TV as we tour the partner brewery that Heretic shares with E.J. Phair Brewing Company. And we get in on a preview tasting panel for some of Jamil's possible recipes for Heretic. No ordinary beer here!

One Take! You got it Dawson, attaboy!!
Really great episode guys. Was very cool to see the starts to Heretic.

Really? No funny clip at the end from Jamil? I would expect him to say something wacky during the whole day. :)
If you need more Time To Brew segments just loan me an HD camera and I'll get you some footage. hehe...
Excellent to see the brewery coming together and some preliminary tasting notes from the Pope's special batches. Let him know homebrewers in Portland are looking forward to when we get his beer in store!

nice! i hope that his beers make it to St. Louis! i'd love to give it a try! maybe he should make a mead... not very many commercial meads available.

Really interesting guys. Hell did you make me jealous, gotta make a trip there soon. Cheers

Haha, I love that Jamil is using the 2 liter bottles of soda, with the labels still on! I wonder if he keeps his hops in old bags of Doritos! Homebrewer 4 Life!

Breweries should make more sour beers, not enough of them.

As a guy who always ends up dumping the last bit from the fermenter in some makeshift bottle pulled from the recycle bin, I love that jamil (who said on brew strong that he doesn't reuse bottles or even siphon tubing because he is afraid of infection) is using refilled pop bottles.

Awesome episode guys. You all seemed a little bit more subdued that usual... Big one the night before, or just in awe of JZ?

I'd love to be able to sample some of the Heretic brews, but I don't think they'll make it down to Australia unless JZ brings some next time he visits.

I am laid off for the winter and I just can't watch enough. Big fan of Jamil with the empty soda bottles. You guys are doing a great job. Love learning a little more about brewing and the world of brewing. Love watching Keeler and Dawson and enjoy when Chip makes a special appearance. Keep up the good work fellas. Between you guys and the brewing network, I'm staying busy on the winter vacation.

That ending has to be the funniest one ever. Chairs. Keep up the good work with Brewing TV. This is a great resource for the home brewer and just an all around awesome endeavor! Thanks for doing it!

Nice episode! When the brewery opens i'm making the trek from utah to check it out! Happy brewing everyone.

As always, great job. Thanks to NB for doing this show! The description of the table beer Jamil's done with the three different yeasts is inspiring. Did he give any more information about the grist? Maybe I missed it. Thanks!

Good stuff. Would have been better with the...COBRA!

Absolutely garbage, -15 pts agility--

You know just an observation but those sample cups had a lot of beer left in them at the end of the episode,if I were there that wouldn't be the case.

March 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterScott Johns

Woo hoo Zamil! I have to say it, though; Dawson needs to spend less time looking at the camera and the dryness off his personality make it hard to watch...

May 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJamison

Funny ending. Way to leave Jamil sitting by himself as you two "cheers" and he "cheers" the air. Go back and do another episode. I am buying his beer and The Evil Twin is great!
