"TokyoDV is stark, elegantly simple and needs very little description. The videos are left to stand on their own and they do. They are non-linear works of art and mini-documentaries. Little stories unto themselves which are amazingly informational, insightful and appealing... It's not often one gets such a great and direct look into another culture." - Michael Meiser, mmeiser.com
The Hop Cast is a video podcast hosted by avid beer advocate members, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder who both currently live in Illinois. Its main purpose is for the two hosts to share their love of craft beer with the world. The format of the show involves Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder reviewing two beers from a specific state, brewery or style. Viewers also get tidbits of information about the brewing process, ingredients, packaging. Many episodes feature a guest who brings on their favorite beer to share with the hosts.
