In this particular episode, Doug Duda journeys to Brussels to find out why excellent beer is made in Belgium.

<img border=0 src=images/features/swit.jpg align=left>On The Movie Channel, catch the 1985 stinker aptly entitled <a hrefhttp://www.showtimeonline.com/TMC/movie.cfm?titleid=548>Beer.

<img border=0 src=images/features/drew.jpg align=right>TBS is airing an old but classic episode of the sitcom <a hrefhttp://www2.warnerbros.com/web/drewcareytv/index.jsp?frompage=sitemap>The Drew Carey Show in which the gang attends an income opportunity exposition and decides to start their own beer brewing company. After several failed attempts, they devise a brew they all like: the infamous coffee-flavored Buzz Beer. Airtime October 1, 3:30pm CST.<br clear=all>
<img border=0 src=images/features/judy.jpg align=left>And finally, what happens when college students spill beer onto a laptop? Obviously, a fight ensues and they end up on <a hrefhttp://www.judgejudy.com/local/local.asp>Judge Judy, of course. Those of you that have experienced this travesty first hand while rating beer may want to tune in for a laugh. Check your local listings for channel and airtime. (Episode number is 3104, if that helps).
