Green eggs and beer? Emeril in DC

It was lights, cameras, action, at Clipper City Brewing Company.

Crew from Discovery Channel's Emeril Green visited the Baltimore, Md. brewery to take video for an upcoming feature on organic and local beer, and cooking with it.

The series ...

is set in Whole Foods Market, where Chef [Emeril] Lagasse and the store’s team help average people shop for the freshest ingredients while explaining the benefits of organic, locally grown and seasonal produce. After shopping for ingredients, Chef Lagasse prepares a meal with each individual that demonstrates the ease of using organic and locally grown foods in everyday meals.

[UPDATE] The actual cooking segment with Chef Lagasse was shot in Fairfax, Virginia at the Whole Foods Market in Fair Lakes, on Wednesday, 7 January 2009.

Among the segments was DC homebrewer and homecook Jason Nuzzo cooking with Chef Lagasse using organic beer, including Oxford Raspberry Wheat Ale from local brewery Clipper City of Baltimore, Maryland. Other organic beers were Wolavers, Peak, and Lakefront. Also listed as a show favorite was Orlio from Magic Hat Brewing of Vermont, a beer that has since been discontinued, even though the brewery continues to thrive. (Two amusing typos at the site: Otter Creek as "Otto Creek" and Clipper City as "Cider City".)

Clipper City's website announced the air date as April 2009.
