Mondays are dreadful and always wreaking havoc on how we move forward (or don’t) during the week. Tuesdays tend to the days wear we try to stay productive and depending on how the week has started we either dive into a night of Netflix or jump onto the treadmill to try and live off of endorphins for the week. Thursdays are being thirsty and getting just drunk enough to make it to work the next day. And then there’s Fridays. It doesn’t get any better. But what about Wednesday? There’s really nothing spectacular about the day. It’s Hump Day. But what does that even mean? It’s in the middle of the week so you’re supposed to get laid? That’s gotta get old after a while.
Well for most younger people, or people in general, sitting home on a weekday evening when it’s gorgeous outside might not be the prototypical way to spend your time. And yes, there’s always TiVo or whatever kind of taping that your cable service offers. And watching TV on-demand might be easier in this case, but just bare with me here for a second. Esquire Network’s new lineup of TV shows had to start with some retreads and syndicated headliners to get viewers interested. The network actually was originally the Style Network and has been changed into a metrosexual channel focusing on travel, cooking, and fashion. Personally, I think it’s genius. But regardless of what you think of it overall, there’s two shows that even the least metro dude/bro ever would still appreciate.
These two shows are Brew Dogs and Best Bars In America. What dude doesn’t love beer? If you’ve gotta learn something new, it doesn’t hurt that it’s about beer and the pursuits of drinking beer, right? Well, not to be confused with the Irish brewing company in the singular form, Brew Dogs follows to bros that own one of the biggest breweries in the United Kingdom as they tour the United States and their favorite craft beers. Every guy seems to want to try their hand at brewing beer, but few ever really know what the fuck is going on. These guys show viewers how it’s done and what to aim for. And if all else, you can drink bottled beer while watching them drink on TV. It’s all very interested to both the novice and seasoned drinker/brewer. So assuming you’re not going out, it’s conveniently on at 9 pm just as you’ve grown tired watching the baseball game but won’t interfere with watching football. The same goes for the show that follows it at 10 pm, Best Bars In America. This show actually follows two comedians around mostly big cities while they check out the best bars of all kinds. Checking in at the happiest of happy hours and the hippest of dive bars, Jay Larson and Sean Patton keep things fun and light-hearted while offering insight and reputable opinions.
So if you’re stuck with nothing to do or want to drink a beer and want to watch a show or two about drinking beers without the hassle of paying 6 bucks for a domestic bottle then Brew Dogs and Best Bars In America are for you. What else do you have going on Wednesday nights?
