The humble little Batch-22 blog was contacted by (apparently) David Page, President of Page Productions. He produces Beergeeks.tv hosted by Michael Ferguson. He says it is “the first nationally syndicated show celebrating the world of craft beer.”
Page goes on to say:
As great as the show is (we’ve just been nominated for an Emmy as Outstanding Culinary Program up against the big boys like Bobby Flay and Anthony Bourdain), generating revenue to produce the series remains a struggle. We are committed to shooting season two and are trying to fund the shooting of one episode through Kickstarter. Which means we need to get the word out (and quickly, since we are on a 30 day Kickstarter deadline).
It would be a great help if you could please pass the word along to anyone and everyone you know — through your blogs, email lists, websites, any way you can help us reach as many beer lovers as possible. Please direct everyone to our Kickstarter site via this web address: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/71568375/emmy-nominated-beer-geeks-television-series-season
By doing this, you can be a big part of helping us continue to get the word out about the great craft beer community. And we appreciate the assistance very, very much.
I think I can kick loose a few coins. I’ve not seen Beer Geeks before but it looks like something I will have to see.
