Each episode features one of four hosts: Lori Griffis (’s “Girls Gone Bayou”), Ewan Porter (Australian pro-golfer and commentator), Olivia Speranza (’s “Terminal Bliss at SFO”) and Ryan Van Duzer (’s “Bike Tour of California Wineries”). Each host takes viewers to different regions of the United States, tasting some of of the top local microbrews in 16 different cities. The cities visited include: Atlanta, Ga.; Boulder, Colo.; Chicago, Ill.; Cleveland, Ohio; Grand Rapids, Mich; Hermosa Beach, Calif.; Lakewood, N.Y.; Loveland, Colo.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Nashville, Tenn.; Portland, Ore.; San Antonio, Texas; St. Louis, Mo.; Tampa, Fla.; Tempe, Ariz. and Winston-Salem, N.C. They speak with chefs and brew masters, learn special food pairings and drink in the history to discover why each microbrewery is a can’t miss destination.
