Drinking Made Easy

3 Seasons

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.
