Belgian beer on UK TV show airing in Belgium

Unread postby Elderberry » Mon Jan 26, 2015 8:38 am

Confused?

I recently caught an episode of "Jimmy and Jamie's Food Fight Club" on TV here in Belgium. There's a beer-focused episode that takes place in Belgium that'll be on Njam (if you have Telenet) on Wednesday night. Somebody told me they saw it on Belgacom as well. It's pretty ridiculous, but hey, it's beer on TV.

It seems to be a Channel 4 production. A quick search brought me here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/jami ... /52650-004

But I can't seem to play the video. I see the controls, but they are disabled. I'll try some more tonight at home.

Yeah, I know there's a geography block on the channel 4 broadcast. That's why I mentioned the local broadcast. I came across it on another local channels as well over the weekend, but I forgot which one. Don't try too hard. It's not THAT interesting. Just some eye candy.

I just watched the episode. And near the end of the show there was a nice surprise: I recognized one of the jury members. He actually lives nearby. And he brews some nice beers himself. Rock on, dude! :beerbang:

Around 41:45 they announce the Westmalle Dubbel as the Westmalle Tripel, though :(

:cheers:
