DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, September 2012) Mike Rowe is thirsty. Really thirsty. And after doing hundreds of dirty jobs, who can blame him? In Discovery's brand new three part series HOW BOOZE BUILT AMERICA, premiering on Wednesday, September 19th at 10pm ET/PT (and airing on the following two Wednesdays), host Mike Rowe takes a break from the dirty jobs...and takes a seat at the bar. Did you know that the Puritans landed the Mayflower early on Plymouth Rock... because they ran out of beer? Or that Johnny Appleseed was actually creating farms to sell hard apple cider? Mike Rowe does, and he'll walk you through all of this and more. He's proven that dirty jobs can be fun. He's ready to do the same for history. In HOW BOOZE BUILT AMERICA, Mike Rowe will crisscross the country, stiff drink in hand and beer goggles firmly strapped on, to take an in depth and slightly unusual look at the story of our nation. Between reenactments of actual historical events, and current day interviews with historians and experts, Rowe will make the case that alcohol is clearly one of the key ingredients that formed our culture and our country.
