‘Dark Horse Nation’ Episode Guide (Aug. 12): Equipment Pushed to the Breaking Point

“Full Tanks Ahead!” (08/12/14; 10:03-10:33PM) – With the demand for their beer increasing, the Dark Horse crew boosts their output by brewing 24 hours a day which pushes their equipment to the breaking point. Meanwhile, Aaron challenges the guys to mill their own lumber from trees on their property and rebuild the front of the brewery.

“Beers on Parade” (08/12/14; 10:33-11:03PM) – For the first time in their history, Dark Horse decides to enter their town’s annual Christmas parade float contest. But the town’s strict rules for the event don’t sit well with the guys as they struggle to make their vision for their creation into a reality.

In small town Marshall, Michigan, there is a group of life-long friends living out their version of the American dream. Led by rebel entrepreneur and fearless visionary, Aaron Morse, Dark Horse is a thriving business set amongst a rural paradise. Morse and his team have been making a name for themselves since 1997, when Dark Horse started bottling their unique line of craft beers. Now distributed in 12 states, the Dark Horse crew is determined to turn their business into a household name. Its die-hard fan base even has its own nickname: Dark Horse Nation.

However, “Dark Hose Nation” is not only about crafting beer, it’s a way of life. Their recipe for success is as much about experimentation and trouble-shooting as it is self-taught skill and determination. Every week, there is a new project, from creating outlandish inventions to building additions to their ever-growing compound. Around here everything is done by hand, the old-fashioned way, or as they like to put it the “Dark Horse Way.”

12 episodes of “Dark Horse Nation” have been ordered by History. Warrior Poets serves as producer. Tim Healy and Steve Ascher are executive producers for History. Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin, Ethan Goldman, Morgan Spurlock, and Elizabeth Wolff are executive producers for Warrior Poets.
