Well we finally made it!
After over a year of filming in all weathers and giving every new beer we could get our hands on a whirl we’ve reached the magic 100th episode of BeerSweden TV!
We’ve come a long way Trev and I since the early days waaaaay back in March 2010 when we kicked things off with a tasting of Easter beers in the badly lit basement of my house. Along the way we’ve drunk fruity beers with a TV celebrity (who, after appearing on BSTV has gone on to far greater things), knocked over a Penguin on a ski slope, danced the embarrassingly ridiculous sort of dance you see at wedding parties and worn a skirt while carrying an axe.
And that’s just for starters!
So when it came to choosing the theme for our 100th episode we wanted to do something that we believe has never been done before – the first beer and fermented herring tasting on video. It really did seem a good idea on paper. Now I understand why nobody’s done it before.
Now this episode does go on a bit. In fact it’s almost 20 minutes long, which with today’s shrinking attention spans means most of you will start drumming your fingers and think about going to get a cup of coffee around the time I’m asking Trev if this really is TV, what we do?
Sorry about that.
However we wanted to leave all the twisted facial expressions and retching sounds in so you get an uncut look at our experience. I hope it doesn’t put too many of you off susrströmming. Apparently if really can be rather nice.*
From Trev and me to everyone that’s followed BSTV over the past year and a bit thanks for all your comments and support! We’re really just two
middle-aged young guys drinking beer and having fun and we hope you’re having a laugh with us too.
So what does the future hold for BSTV? Well, more whirling, more beers, less herrings, more live episodes and more TV. Because it is TV, what we do, isn’t it?
*As, apparently, can colonic irrigation, but I’m not buying that either.
