Comedian Zane Lamprey has made a name for himself hosting TV shows about regional drinks and drinking customs around the world. In Drinking Made Easy, he sticks to North America and visits popular bars, breweries and distilleries in cities from Portland, Maine, to Maui, Hawaii. Friend and sidekick Steve McKenna often joins Zane at the bars and breweries for drinks and food games, which involve who can eat the most within a time limit. Episodes also feature Six-Pack Challenges -- including keg throwing, beer pong and grape stomping -- with the winner receiving, you guessed it, six-packs of beer.
Zane drinks his way through the Big Easy. He suffers a brain freeze at Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar Shop, the oldest bar in the U.S., he tries a hand grenade, supposedly the strongest drink in NOLA, and faces down a Hurricane at the world famous Pat O'Brien's.
Zane hits Miami Beach, Florida, where it's time for some fun in the sun. He makes 40 mojitos in a minute at Lario's on the Beach, taps a cask of ale at premier beer bar Red Light Red Light and tries to cool off with liquid nitrogen at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.
In the final episode of season one, Zane returns home to Los Angeles. He drinks out of fruit at Paradise Cove, takes a flight at Blue Palms Brew House and stops by Musso and Franks, a Hollywood institution.
