How AJ and Courtney Love Buried the Hatchet
"When I wrote the Courtney Love story about her using heroin when she was pregnant, I was threatened with a lawsuit back in 1990 four, was it? But I stuck to my guns again. I knew my source was right. In one day, I lived in the building in the west village, the meatpacking district on her 95 horatio street believe it or not, Courtney Love lived there as well, and now one night we're both in the goddamn laundry room doing our laundry. And it was late at night because the machines were always never available during the day and, you know, we worked, et cetera, so you do your laundry at midnight, at 1 o'clock in the morning. And when she walked in and saw me, she made the sign of the crucifix when her thing is that she couldn't be near me. Like I was an evil force to deal with him, he started talking, I said, listen, you're a big story. You know that. You're always going to be a big story. But the source who gave me that story about you using is not a liar. I know I was tough to see that in print and it made you feel like shit, but I didn't write it maliciously or without knowing whether or not it was true. I never would have done that about a mother and a child. And she kind of understood when I met. When she began to get nice to me that night. And she said, look, I never used it while pregnant. And my daughter's my world, your story's not true, but I'm not going to look at you and treat you like shit. I just want to tell you a misinformed. I said, all right, Courtney, you know, and I remember walking, we lived in the same floor. And I had to pass her apartment to get to mine. So we're both bringing a laundry back to our rooms. And she gets the hard room. And she opens it up, and we talked for 30 seconds by her door. I remember her plot was so filthy. Pizza boxes, beer cans, every day, and Drew Barrymore was living with her at the time, or crashing there for a while, just a messy ass room, and you know, we parted kind of friendly, my daughter's my world, okay, you know, okay, you know what? Fine, no problem. And then after that talk, whenever I'd see her at a party or a function or a premiere, she always make it a point to say hello to me and she come over and give me a kiss on both cheeks. And that felt nice. Whatever you think of Courtney Love, it doesn't matter, but to have people or to have other celebrities see that I had her respect. That was important to me.
Why Every Private Club Should Have a Pro-Member Tournament
"I'm getting at here is every single club, private club should have a pro member tournament. That was a blast. It was only one day, but Meredith and nailed it. They did. The food was good. The beer was called the day was perfect. There's a little side pot for the pros, 18 pros. It went fast. That was one of the faster rounds I've ever played out there. And it was a good time. It was cheap to play in. The pros played, I don't know what we got. I don't know what I got for winning it. It hadn't showed up yet. I'm not sure I have no idea. It doesn't matter. I mean, it was free for me anyway, right? The member paid for it. Pros, you invite who you want to play with. We had a good field. You came at there's a guy named Tom Whitney. I think someone said he played on the corn ferry tour. Last year or two years ago, Clark Dennis plays, he's a senior tour player guy. Anyway, it was a great time. I think pro members, I don't know what red feathers plans are for pro member. But I think every, you know, a good club should have a pro member. If you have a bunch of guys with relationships with professionals and members that want to play with professionals on and off day, it's a no brainer. For a club.

Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump
"That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.

Mary Walter: Why Joe Biden Is Speaking From the Capitol Tonight
"We just heard President Biden going to be addressing the nation at Mary. What do you think we can expect? Well, apparently he's going to talk about he's giving this speech from the capitol because that's where that's where the overthrow of democracy was attempted from the capitol. So I'm sure they're going to trot out the red lights again. And two stormtroopers in the back. And because it works so well, the first time. So they're going to do it again. Here's what's amazing to me about all of this. And I think I've said it before to you Todd. How are the Democrats misreading the room this badly? This is what Republicans do. Republicans are the ones who can't message Republicans otherwise. Well, let's face it a lot of Republicans kind of just fell into this, right? And because the Democrats are playing so poorly, it's falling into their lap. How are they screwing this up so badly? I don't understand it. Nobody cares about January 6th, but they don't have anything else. I am going to be fascinated glued to my television with popcorn and a beer because this is going to be the best entertainment there is tonight. Jeff
Dr. Jonathan Reiner: Dr. Oz Speaking Fast to Fetterman Was 'Cruel'
"It was very obvious that how, give one example, oh, well, doctor Jonathan Reiner, a Professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, said, hold my beer, Sonny. I'm a doctor, and I can tell you why Oz was cruel. Get ready for this explanation. I take care of people like mister federman, who have had atrial fibrillation, which is where we think his stroke came from, how it originated. And I admire his courage to go on that debate last night. He had to know that he was facing basically a fast talking TV Doctor Who at times seemed to be talking almost intentionally faster in the face of mister fetterman's difficulty speaking. Sometimes it appeared almost cruelly faster. He had to know that he would get the kind of reception that he got from that. And turn it off. Turn it off, I can't listen anymore of it. Doctor Oz was speaking fast. He was intentionally being cruel, but you can not make this crap up?

"Jay, have you heard of Bucky's? It's a fuel station. Oh, yes. Yes, I have. It's the new thing in Florida, yeah. So they're in Tennessee as well. They're moving up. I think they're kind of like the armadillo. They're finally making their own out of floor. Yeah. So these things are massive. For those of you that haven't seen one, it is bigger than any truck stop. I've ever seen. The number of gas pumps, I mean, you're in the probably close to a hundred pumps. That's insane. I mean, it's crazy, right? They're big, like, full on restaurant. Freshly made deli their stores inside. Like you can buy camping gear. It's bigger than some of the bigger little Walgreens, bigger than smaller than a Walmart or a target, but these places are huge. Which I have to wonder with the electric vehicle mandates being out there. And these places being so petroleum dependent for business, what's their long-term vision. But I digress. So pull up and pull up in a Google tab right now. And this is what I want you to type in. Okay. Bucky's mascot. It's be UC EES. Bucky's mascot. Okay? And you should see a picture of the little guy there in the results. Yeah, he's a beaver, right? Bucky the beaver, yeah. I see it. So we stopped for fuel at one of these last week. And I decided that in addition to beer name or mascot name, or apparently, is a gift. Because I came up with a name for this mascot. I couldn't find the name of the mascot in any of their literature. I looked online, I did this very search. Okay? I think you should be called Justin. Justin Bieber, there you go. I love it, man. Justin Bieber. All right, folks, you heard it here first. Just reach out to us. Bucky's, you're welcome. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah, you could have him dance it. He could be a movies. For sure. Yeah, absolutely, man. You could absolutely. He just broke ground, man, I think. I think he just broke ground. I really do. But maybe you should be his agent, you know? Yeah, since we got all these beaver, if you need an agent, Justin. Just hit us up over on parts counter guru dot com. There's a comments down. Oh man, I love it so much. I just love it. We are just full of absolute the best information in one could offer. I mean, we've got it all. Okay, so anyway, onto onto expensive cars. We've talked about the Cadillac lyric. It is Cadillac's flagship at this point. Of their entry into the EV market. It's an awesome looking vehicle turns heads like crazy. My dad is actually really, my dad loves cadillacs and he likes the car. We've talked about it. But Cadillac didn't stop there. They are wanting to obviously compete with the rolls royces. And a customizable luxury vehicle that will be there will be no two alike they say. They will all be hand built, they are 3D printing as many as a 115 different components on this vehicle. They are also doing some interesting aluminum casting for the wheels are going to have 23 inch wheels on these things. Here's the thing that got my attention mainly though. Yester hand built luxury vehicle and it'll be a low volume vehicle as well. 300,000 dollars. All right. So this is interesting. And I do like the enthusiasm that Mary Barra and team are showing on, hey, let's try some new things. My gut reaction to this is with no offense to your dad because the Cadillac does make a good product. And then resale values tend to do well over the years. But $300,000 for an automobile made by General Motors. So let me put this in perspective. Okay? This is space, by the way, that they haven't been in yet. Right. So let's say you're going to buy a watch. Okay? And you have $10,000 to spend on a watch. You know what? Let's make it 15. Let's make this interesting, okay? Okay. Okay. You got 15 K to spend on a watch, okay? Do you buy a Rolex? Or do you buy the latest fancy watch from timex that has all the Rolex like features and then some? For 12 5. Point will take in if I've got 15 to spend. You're going to get a Rolex. I'm going to get a rollout. Or an omega, or right? Right. Why is that? Timex has been around. They make decent watches. They don't make a decent yet $15,000 watch. No. That I know of. They make fishing at us out there, Mike, correct me. Right. But if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a watch, I'm buying more than the components in the watch, right? Right. Right. Okay. I think there's a couple of things that you get from this. For example, loss of value over time. Rolls Royce versus a Cadillac, loss of value. I don't think you're going to have near as much in depreciation with that roles or worse as you will with the Cadillac. Likewise, with a timex over a Rolex. It just doesn't happen. If
The Life and Times of Sammy Davis Jr
"Now, to go back to knowing what all there is to know about Sammy, he was born in Harlem, 1925 at the age of three, he went on the road with his father, and they appeared with a man they called the boy's uncle. They called his wet and sky will masten, Sami's uncle. And they developed the will mast and trio. And since they grew up in a very segregated world of the black vaudeville circuit without any formal education and they had to overcome racism of white audiences, Jamie Davis knew all along that he had no choice but to succeed. He had to. And again, James Baldwin, who sat me down a couple of times and told me great stories, he said that Sammy Davis told him at one point he had to decide between greatness and madness. And he chose greatness. He was very smart. He was one of the smartest people to perform ever. Probably a entertainment genius, really. He understood show business just completely. He never stopped studying it. But since he was on tour from the age of three, it took its toll. He never learned to write, he was a really big reader, he read constantly during his conversion to Judaism after the big 1954 car accident that cost him his left eye. One of his William Morris agents left the agency to become Davis business partner, sign marsh. And to the day he died, he could sign his name, but he could not write. That's why he never personalized autographs to anyone. Because he couldn't spell people's names. And he was embarrassed of it. But he went through some shit in the army Sammy Davis, he'd been drafted into the army to fight, and he did, but he fought with southerners in southwestern and they got their kicks fucking around with them and needling them. And he said he got his ass kicked every couple of days when he was just in the army. His nose was broken, countless times, which you can plainly see that. Permanently flattened, they used to give him beer to drink before they poured half out and pissed in the rest of it. Just disgusting stuff. And he finally was assigned to special services where he performed in camp shows around the country. And he just loved to make audiences laugh and have a good night out. That's what broke down the barriers eventually between the two sides.
Ed Ryan: Why Some People Did Not Evacuate for Hurricane Ian
"Of the reasons for that was back when Irma hit everybody in the barrier islands Fort Myers beach sanibel pine island, and they were all told that the storm surge was going to be so bad that it was going to have the potential to destroy buildings. And what happened was there was no storm surge. So I think there was a false sense of security this time around where they said, watch out, watch out for the storm surge, and people decided if they had a two story building, they were just going to move up or if they had an addict, they were just going to move up. And what happened was it was so high. Mike, when I tell you that, we looked at some of the buildings during the storm where there were cameras set up on high rises. The buildings were underwater. I mean, some of the houses on fort Mars beach are so old, the cottages. They were just, they were just broken into tiny little pieces. There was no chance for people to survive if there were something like that. Mobile home parks, same thing. They're at least two or three on four Mars beach. They just totally destroyed all of those, all those facilities. So, you know, there was a mandatory evacuation. I think governor desantis did a great job. I think the county leaders and Lee county did a great job giving people enough time to get out. I mean, how much time and how many times do you need to be told to get out before you, you know, in your mind you're thinking, I'm staying. I mean, the traffic wasn't bad enough during the initial evacuation where they had to open the shoulder of I 75 or any of the busy roads. They were ready to do that. And so, you know, the people on those islands that decided to stay, they were going to stay. It wasn't like it was the last minute, 15 minutes you have to get out. They knew they were going to try and stay with their with their property. And it looks like you shot pictures now. I believe that's the four Mars beach beer. It was.
Joe Concha: Biden Admin Are Masters of Self-Inflicted Damage
"The way they frame it it kind of alters it to make you believe he's an innocent victim in all this As you'll see in the book mister bongino Did Joe Biden isn't a victim of circumstances to your point but he and his cabinet his advisers his handlers they are masters of self inflicted wounds in this country And the consequences have been devastating to our wallets I looked at my 401k yesterday my jaw is still on the floor It's been deadly for so many Americans as well in terms of their decisions around the border in terms of opioid overdoses fentanyl coming in record numbers from China through Mexico and into the hands of so many young Americans who are dying That's the thing right It's all self inflicted So when you look at inflation yeah inflation goes up and down But when this president came into office it was at 1.4% And now it's well above 8% And I'm guessing maybe this is the reason why when you inject trillions of dollars into the economy in addition to the trillions that you're already spending that tends to increase inflation But again these guys will go out there and particularly the president as press secretary and they'll say no you know what This is called the inflation reduction act So I know we're spending a lot of money but it's going to bring down inflation And then every sober study and analysis says that actually it's going to raise inflation And that's the thing This is all self inflicted based on the decisions that they have made and that's why we are where we are And that's why I'm just amazed to your point Yeah he's had about 39 40% right now Who are these people I mean all I can have a beer with these folks sometimes is what can you possibly say you're doing correct right now
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes' path: From Yale to jail
"Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes returns to court for his trial on charges related to the capitol riot Rhodes graduated from Yale law school He was a clerk on the Arizona Supreme Court but for people he worked with like Matt Perry Rhodes came across as angry So I made the jokes about Stewart having being the next Hitler I really meant that he was going to lead some kind of charge against the government just like Hitler did at the beer hall putsch get arrested be in jail and that was going to be it And that was going to be the end of Stewart Perry told the AP roads alienated his Republican boss and the Arizona Supreme Court and eventually left the job Jim Arroyo was president of an oath keeper's chapter in Arizona Stewart will In my opinion go down as a person who created one of the greatest organizations this country has ever seen And then destroyed it single handedly At the same time Arroyo says Rhodes wanted to send oath keepers to the Mexico border in an armed operation to support border patrol Roads and four others are on trial in a rarely used Civil War era law against attempting to overthrow the government I'm Ed Donahue
Revolver.News' Darren Beattie Discusses Manufactured White Supremacy
"Joining us now is Darren Beatty from revolver dot news. Darren, welcome back to the program. Excellent to be back as always. So Darren, thank you. So I want to talk to you about this one particular story. Is it true that the federal beer investigation is misrepresenting what might be considered white supremacy arrests or incidents in their reports to make it seem as if there's a bigger problem than they're actually is. Walk us through this story. Well, it certainly seems that way on the basis of whistleblower accounts. And just to contextualize all of this, this alleged national security threat posed by white supremacy dates back to really the Trump presidency where the DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, which is a national security bureaucracy set up in the aftermath of 9 11 to protect us against foreign terrorism, declared that white supremacy was the number one threat and since the DHS declared this a number of other national security institutions have followed suit. Now evidently, the FBI is getting on board. And the problem with white supremacy is there's just not the supply to meet the demand. And so it has to be manufactured. And it can be manufactured the kind of laborious way of actually setting up entrapment schemes like what we see the FBI did in the Michigan Whitmer case. But the easier way to do it is just cook the books and manufacture the numbers and count certain things as white supremacist terror when they really have nothing to do with it to feed into the desired narrative.

We did her but tell me about some of the fun phrases that these german madman have come up with october fest. Ones is the the fruit shopping. You know what that is. I don't recall tell me about that is morning drinking. It's the tradition of meeting in a pub late in the morning to drink a weiss beer or vice beers they might say and sometimes a meal. It was popular after a church service in the regions of germany. But it's kind of been in decline with the The lack of church attendance. So it's it's a popular german drinking phrase and activities still to this day so there's that and of course you've heard oath zapped is over that is it is tapped. It is tap the traditional acclimation to kick off october fest. Which reminds me. I don't have the stats for of people bets. On how many hammer hits it takes to tap the traditional keg and i believe the lord mayor actually does the tapping at the low end. It's two people. One guy had a string of doing it with two taps. And i believe the guy who did the worst job of it was in the teens. I think there's a team. Yeah i think it might seem so yes seriously. Are you even in politics. What are you even doing. Don't get stripped of citizenship. I think he was the jackie crossing the he lost his office and was it was kicked over to austria. Have we ever had a single hitter.

I'm just playing along with. I mean it sounds like that. But no tim nate. Do you know beer liken. I have no idea beer like in the it it is. I am not incorrect brian. I would disagree with you saying that. That is not what that means. What's that i believe. The position that are talking about there is referring to i was referring to why just laid out put it together there. Brian i get it. I get what you're saying. Striking will grow on the ground grow on rocks just so. Let's people in what you're liking. It means beer corpses so what locals call the people that get drunk too early and pass out in the grass so in theory metaphorically speaking fillon it seems like they're like the grass on the rocks. These drunk right. This one's fine. Give mukhlis kite okay. It's a state or feeling of warmth. Friendliness and good cheers is that specifically refer to alcohol related or just in general just in general but they are popular drinking phrases injury and would-be heard most likely in reference to october fest. What does the word l. folks ghaffar wrong main. That's the feeling. I think it's a feeling of success or something like that. The feeling you get after being successful at something air folks. Cafaro fox cafaro. I know were murdering the we named the homebrew after that. You guys have our half of ice. In that we did named f-folks cathedral l. folks afar brady sure of had. I bet you carry success feeling feeling of success as successfully exactly and there's a german word for feeling of success. Yeah allows germans got some great phrases. I mean they really encompasses a lot in what they say. They're but based on the little bit i know of german is probably is a bunch of words. Ram together into one word. The kindergarten is child guard. Rowing child garden. Brian planned kids. Don't forget to water the six year olds. Yeah we'll never grow right. Yes you're listening to beer. Guy's radio show and i absolutely guarantee it's time for us to take a break. We'll be.

We're gonna talk about blind taste and rank october vespers. Guys thanks for joining us. Thanks for having us much. Friction and brian important fact there that storytime is a beer. Guy's radio sponsor they are yes. Let did impact us. Okay a little bit a little bit but ansa we've known you much longer than you've sponsor the show we've hung out and been building breweries all around the area right. You've probably had your hands in quite a few of the berries in georgia. Yeah good stuff. I mean they're still popping up left right. Yeah i probably need to get with you and make sure my list is up to date because you probably know some things that i don't you probably get the word a little quicker than ideal on sometimes. Well he knows that when they're thinking about getting built that's for sure that's right. Yeah when they get there. So we share. It's a synergistic relationship. Here symbiotic synergistic centers. Just want more shark or something like that which is which synergistic symbiosis exactly what it is. Which one of us is the fifth stuck to the other side right now. I think we'd be the sucker fish riding along probably good snacks and the process. Yeah i'm okay with that. Yeah nate schieber. Cherry street nate second year joining us for the october fest. Show is how many times you've been on with us before. Thank you times right. As i say this is like five or six at least yeah. We had joe mcintyre less writer. Yeah and joe is currently in a rubel and did you do this preparing for a move to mexico. We decided was the council of nights or the league of nate's or something like that we had something the panel of native. There was like three if it was super confusing was it was eight nathan digit dude. Nate nate nate. Actually think everybody prefers nathan but we insisted on calling every. Somebody's got no mike. Did you do nate. In nathan nate. Nate nate we made it through. We did was beer there. We didn't care has bear. Don't care that's exactly right. it worked out. Well it did. Was brian were tasting october fest beers this week were pretty open with what we're trying as far as beer versus marts in a lot of people talk about that debate that but you have done the research. Brian and you can tell us the difference in these beers right. Yeah so basically. The idea was people had been drinking marson. They're bigger tier sweeter heavier. They're really enjoyable. They the great when the weather starts getting cooler but people were looking for something. They could drinking greater quantity. Because you've got those big stein. Says i think a clear. Ma with the nobody really no way to find a way. Yeah the leaders and so it's it's a little harder to drink the the marsden's in quantity so spears spears are lighter in body lighter in color to typically but they tend to be a little higher alcohol. So you can drink and faster and you can get your twist on there. A little easier is the summary of its anyway. So the ten dis one of the lighter. Beer than the martins. Yeah and the brewers responded like all right. We'll make it lighter but it's going to have more alcohol exactly so we're gonna see a lot more beer like inside that we've got all kinds of fundable raises to think it actually started off with the dunkel. Was the original acting like the eighteen. Ten when i came out is gone progressively from darker to lighter in the in the spear really kind of hit. It's run there. I think believe it was the nineteen seventies. Okay so what are the rules like. I think any beer served at octoberfest is considered a fence. Beer is is that profess beer. It's considering an october fest. Speier so any beer served at october fest. No matter what kind. It is not alcoholic whatever. It's an october fest beer. Coal and the only ones the only beers that can be served there are by the believe. It's twelve breweries within the city limits. There those guys. The olympic can brousseau anything they bring basically becomes an october fest. Be yourself they wanted to spirits fine so when they changed styles. That doesn't matter. It's an october fest bureau because you're drinking in october. So that's it so there you go. It has to be from within the city limits. And that's the big thing so it's twelve breweries. And that's what she got. So i think the reinheitsgebot actually applies there. I think they enforce that though a little debate on that i was looking at wikipedia and nobody cited a source on that so we don't know if they're still enforcing that but i think they are. I think all these qualify. You know believe so. I doubt they're putting anything. Funky defense i doubt it. I don't think they're doing a lot of crazy dropping or adding you know passion freezer quarter i think. And you're not dry hop for the ron. You probably could. Yeah because it's definitely do that. But i mean solar days after three pm. That's right that's right. I used to be restrictions on it too. I think you could only for certain parts of the year which is where the mars and got its name. They brunette then made a darker something that could last until the october fest seasons. Like worth or rules with brewing. That like you could be severely punished. If you didn't follow him. I think yeah like exiled or put to death and like serious romans do punishment. Yeah right have you. Have you heard about this and so there was that does come to mind. I'm trying to what i heard about that. But yeah i might try to remember. We just chop it to pieces and you know what it might not have been germany. It might have been one of the norwegians. And i think it might have been when we were talking about cezanne's that you had to brew a certain amount and if you didn't you know this and that but we could be mixing up crown or something that requires it was against the law. To not rule. Bright i think norwegians had to brew at least a hundred leaders of fest beer for martin so they could enjoy him at passover and then you got stoned to death and you could. You could not participate in halloween festivities. Right yeah yeah. I mean it's the law which is discipline. It'd be totally discipline. They can't dress up. Yeah exactly know tim. Let's talk about the beer's the week crack open cold one. It's the truck and tap beer at the week. Craft beer and food trucks in downtown woodstock truck and chat dot com. Brian got a fantastic list.

"A little breeze and having a good time terrapin atlanta taproom so terrapin beer company. Calm in athens georgia. The main very. They're just about ready to celebrate. Twenty years is right absolutely right. Yes years at georgia about that and and before we begin. I need to say that. I'm usually drive my car. Listening to you guys listening to this show and it's a little surreal to see your voices coming out of your faces right alive being here and thanks for having us. Thanks started two thousand. Two in athens georgia okay. Classic georgia craft brewery mccaskey and john. Cochran our founders. One of the very first beers they ever released was ripe hale they ended. Abs in two thousand two and won a gold medal immediately so they were often running there. Like i think we might have something here rights and that's going back almost twenty years now. If you've been in georgia beer for twenty years there were maybe four. Choose from you. Know all along that period so tarapoto. Jeez the you know the patriarchs georgia. I didn't realize how young terrapin was at the time. But i came here around two thousand three and one of my early favorites was that Pale i really laugh. In at that point i thought terrapin was more established than it was but yeah they were very young. I didn't realize that i really enjoyed that. Beer beer and honestly beer scene was bar in. Thank god for that beer back in those days. What would i have even done coming over for portland oregon right now to hear like without that and I guess four twenty sweetwater up. That was it. Yeah yeah in imports. Going way. Back and You know that it's it's one of those beers that it's quote unquote in hibernation right now right. It's not. It's not a regular year round beer that we grew but we keep bringing it back because so many people love it and we you know we hear about it on social media we hear about it in our tapper and when is ripe fail coming back so It's something that you'll see from time to time. Have you experimented with versions of it here. In the the line we absolutely have and then once they versions so spike does not allow us to touch that recipe. Right okay are what we do is we. We will brew a ripe l l exactly to his specification okay. If you get close to that how close to that recipe and you get before he comes in and says no no stuff. That's close got ryan but it's not same thing too close to play around with spike like trying to get close to that exactly until it until you get across from their. Call the beer trolling spike. Love it now. I don't want that to cost your job but it would be funny way to lose a job be worth it. It might be worth so tell us about the beer. We're drinking writer right now. We are sipping on Burlap palace just a classic munich hellas traditional german lager. Beer were located here inside the braves stadium and so we really do focus on a lot of sessional styles and we love lagers. I would say you know if you look at what we fruit over the past four years since we've opened it's probably like a seventy thirty split of lock. Seventy percent loggers versus ails partly. Because that's a great fear to truck. I'm sure but also because we grew. We wanna drink right. It's myself and peter and chad degree of us. We love lager beers. We tried to keep a a nice fresh clean lager on draft all the time so we've got this calloused that we're drinking today are keller pills that we try to earlier out. Yeah we have a A nice little. We call it a summer pills. That's not a real style but we've creating creating stuff. That beer is called happy pills. So okay take your happy pills. What makes summary honors. It's the fact that we tap during the summer. Okay it's a seasonal tap smart is light it's crispy the ph style down. You know so that. It's super refreshing and crib. Make sure to come back later. And the autumn pills is professor. There you go there you go. Yeah yes. I want to throw this in as we sit here. They're playing baseball and now girl. Just hit a ball and It raw. I think they got a thought. It rolled through the fence into the braves ball. Home run does that run mark backing up a little bit. How did you get involved because you come from ten. Blake right and for those. That don't know there's all kinds of dirty words used to describe it but terrapin was acquired by ten blake Miller coarser molson coors is course they are terrapin is part of a big beer company and you came from that background terrapin. How did that transition absolutely did so. I grew up in a small town about sixty miles north of milwaukee. Growing up there the dream. The dream of everyone was to get a job at miller brewing company. In milwaukee right. I mean look at that highlight logo hanging over the top of the brew house in milwaukee basically writing about fifteen years ago. I was lucky enough to make that happen for me. So i did start from the very beginning in the beer industry with a quote unquote big beer as a sales analyst and then moving into field sales and then started to work in learning development. Molson course actually does a great job of beer education. Okay not only their field sales team in their marketing teams but also distributors and so i was brought on board help with something they called at the time miller coors university And the the beer merchant program where. I taught classes on how to homebrew hot pair of beer food together how to cook with beer things like that that all turned into moving to atlanta joining the terrapin team at the braves stadium. Which is kind of crazy. I like all of those things cooking with beer drinking beer big fan of that. All that is good stuff. There was a great story. you were talking about. How will your beer pairing one in What was that was with blue moon and he had to present blue moon. So you say cheese. And it's a via guys on your show a little while back which was a great episode. But i mean that is the pinnacle of brewing. A beer in a ballpark and having it turns into something. Incredible right. if you don't know the story key via worked at the sandlot brewery at coors field in denver colorado where the rockies play and in nineteen ninety-five hebrew beer called It was called belly. Slide wit beer which name slide with beer okay. Eventually that turned into blue.

Next friday is a wuyin shirt day so if you want to go ahead and uh where a wind shirt and jeans now back to the beer guy's radio show welcome back to the beer guy's radio show. I wanna give a quick shout out to one of our great radio affiliates. wbz q. Oh ninety three point seven fm in brunswick georgia catch beer guys. Renewing w bq. Oh every saturday one pm now. Let's get back to wandering soul beer company. Matt smith wondering soul beer company. Matt were onto another be here. We are drinking your things. We don't say. I know we've talked about this. A little bit before But keeping with your theme of having a story behind the beer. Can you tell us a little bit about things. We don't say shirley beer it's a double. Ipa's eight percent. It was a little bit out of my wheelhouse when i first designed that recipe but so the opposite change it's on its fourth version but it landed in a place right thing off keep it. It's a blend of oxidized. I really likes the mosaic. In there is pretty heavy on the mosaic centennial. Eldorado in vic secret. Which is a hop that i love but basically the idea behind the names things. We don't say came to me as the second year that we put out when i say we. It's not just me right. Like i'm brewing. My beer at other people's breweries. So i rely on their equipment. I rely on their staff rely on their canning line. Do you with several breweries or do you just have one. You've partnered with it's changed. Its several. don't okay the good old gypsy brewer. it's become gypsy brewing. Okay and i started brewing stuff at castle island brewing in norwood mass and then i bumped over to bent water brewing in lynn. Now going back to castle island but still bring that water and i'm also bringing old planners ear. Beverly have done like five collaboration beers. And there's going to be other beers that are made at other people's breweries that are already in the works but basically things you don't say was the whole concept. It's a concept beards about the things that people go through in life that they're you know maybe afraid to talk about because they don't wanna make somebody sad and i know that with me would happen for us like with melody. Traditionally that experience is not really talked about you know Especially from the perspective of being a a man. Because i think women are probably better being opened with things like this especially emotional things but you know being a man like supposed to be the strong lawn and you know like hydra motions and brush everything under the carpet and like. Don't make anybody sad. You know so. I realized very early on in my experience was losing melody. That approach was not going to work for me of keeping quiet about it side. Just kind of let milo emotions just kinda like flow right through knee and it happened to flow right of the beer. You know so is an emotional thing but yet things don't say it was kind of encouragement to that's why it says english dot dot dot dot dot dot dot. Doc is that symbolizes all the things that we just don't talk about it is kinda stay stuck in our heads. It's thoughts they never really entered the world as you know things that we actually discuss. I think you should encourage people to fill out the dot dot dot and like You know put on their things that they don't symbolically opening the can is saying the things that aren't you go. Tim is writing on the can. Right i mean you could even send a message to someone on the can that. Maybe you wouldn't want to say you're lucky my pancakes say what i want to say. Is that safe for radio. Thanks i guess why was right on the can right. Can't radio one of those phrases that can have so. Many different meanings icon tariff. That like people could look at me like out things. You don't say like bad words and stuff like that you know things are gonna make them laugh so that need also that name that was going to be abandoning actually a band. No okay. that's too bad. That's a shame. More of a met more medals. Things don't skank yes. Yeah but that beer change is changed a few times. Yes the only wpa that i've done and you know i've temporary it's my best selling beer. I'd say melody maker's right behind actually have a change dot org petition to ban eldorado hop. So i hate to. I was going to bring up to say that. They're they're polarizing heads. Have people complaining about before him. Of now i mean so the thing with el dorado is if you're using too much of them or using them in part of the process where they're going to extract more of the oils more roth flavor. They can get very very pungent very in your face. And some of the flavors at it throws off are not necessarily good. I think that i've grown to really like that hop in it's only in the dry up. I think if you use eldorado home outside of bruin you'll get a different character but it's pretty raw. It'd be careful with it. You know also when you blend with other hops it takes on a different persona to single hop beer with eldorado. He sounds like the worst thing ever see. I'm i know you dig. The way comes out. I know that one of the big brewers in the area got rid of it. They had eldorado for a particular lee high profile. Wpa and decided. They did not care for the brewer. Told us pretty point blank. I don't like eldorado. And i won't use it again exactly. Yes yes then you gotta you gotta remember too that like with eldorado every crop years different with any hop any cropper's germs. Bright galaxy hops when galaxy hops got big last year's crop Twenty twenty tastes different than when galaxy hopscotch real big. You know an end not only the crop year but the law like specific thought where it came from not only the former came from the plan where it came from the soil where it came from. So you know exactly and if you can break it down so far so like eldorado. You can have it from two different suppliers to different Different this is getting to be like battleship with hop contracts. I want centennial from be twenty. Three twenty three gimme that bingo so and you know what the the way like rain collects and miss collects and all that sort of a. It's possible that that could be different. So it'll be a little a little gully one place where a little bit. More water collects. Those hops will be just a little bit.

"You're running around a blast. Okay having a good time but thank you. You know you mentioned something about how crash beer became geeky and it did and you know. Probably in the food and beverage industry. The two biggest geek crowds half the be craft beer yes and barbecue. They go hand in hand. And for some reason the nest kennesaw. We decided to go after both those marks at the same time. And we're still alive worshipers so everybody's got preconceived notions in this flavors. What you talk about all nostalgia everybody's got this preconceived notion that you're always wrong but you know we're really proud of where we are. We we just had our five year mark We've got a whole new leadership team in place. We got new executive chef sous chef. We've got new gm's coming into place. I've heard multiple beer. Reps sitting at our are talking about how our beer list is the best it's ever been. I attribute that to our new staff and just the passion that they brought back into it and their ability to work with us and and then we were talking about it in the break. That georgia is not a place where it's defined graph beer anymore and it's spoiled you can come to the nest kennesaw anytime you want to. When you got forty eight years up there on the board. And they're all good choices absolutely. I mean the the largest brand. That's on that board. Is i keep guinness on nitro. We you gotta have niger. Yeah it's getting there so everything else up there as as as local at southeastern hazel. You'll see an import but for the most part it's all just great local craft beer and what i love about it. More than anything is the community that inspires and the nest is all about community and craft. Beer is all about community. We want to get together and share those and it's a great place to do with the patios open. All the restaurants are open. it's it's a fun place to hang out if you haven't been there before is worth the drive from wherever you are what i really like about the place. I've always loved you beer list. I think you'll be listened. Great and you've had some interesting stuff in bottles that you don't even notice you're looking at the tablets i'm like oh you've got some fun stuff in bottles to but i like it you kind of got every kind of environment you want. You've got the outdoor portugal. Hang out in next to the firepit. You could be in the kind of the hibari with your buddies drinking craft beer over the private dining section and have have a nice meal It's all of the all this stuff together. Like that extra kennesaw you can grab beer to go out and we we fill growlers now it. It's really got something for everybody. That's great well. The great thing about the necessary very rarely will i bring somebody who's never been there before but every single time we leave their own. My god i need to go back there. I'm going to bring my friends. I can't believe i never knew. This place existed right. Appre appreciate hearing. I love that. Love hear stories when i run into people that have been there before. It's everybody dreams about opening a bar right so for for my family and my partners is a dream come true for us and and i think it comes through and the service we provide so we're coming up on a holiday weekend it the fourth fourth of july independence day. What are you guys. Drink opening any special bottles for this weekend or you're you know getting into anything unusual. It's a good reason for it. One of those one thousand seven hundred seventy six cans going. Yes the seventeen seventy six pack. Personally i i have a keg from variant ready to go this weekend i got a i got a keg of their street. The ip there grenell people say that's a little much for a party at six and a half percent ish. I say that's the best way to throw party. I've got that ready to go. Do they make beer less than that. We have any here. yeah. I don't think so either. That's not beer. that's bourbon. That's all american. That's right it looks. It looks like it could be beer. But that's definitely bourbon. How 'bout you name. Well you know thing interesting. You're planning and drink and my family's not very big beer drinker so i'm going to bring the crispy boys bring some Italian pills owners light lager some stuff. That's really easy. Drinking really approachable. Might bring up big barely edged out for some people who would appreciate that. But yeah i'm thinking. Light is the theme of the nothing says fourth of july like an italian pills. I hadn't considered i like the style. We've we've kind of glommed onto its dropping so in a way it away. It feels like Something that we we should be into but yeah crispy boys man. That sounds great. I'll get into some of those and definitely gonna get the semi p. i have to get. I don't even know. It's whatever have i'm going to go through and i'm like i've got. I've got a solar to work. I'll just put something in the fridge and drink it so we should get together. We should say we shouldn't even have a seller. So we we. We've got to try to drink our way through your sacrifice. Let's let's dispose of all those things so you know one of the things that is really american about craft beer. Craft beer in. America is the innovation when you think of innovation craft beer. What what kind of things come to mind. You have any favorites. Oh man that's a good question. I think the sour trend that happened What has it been five or six years now. I mean when they started going and going all. Can you know you can't talk about craft beer in america without talking about we could. We'd you just had. And i know i know that we're calling them some names and they've done some things like but when they started doing their their angel series. Those were just i mean those were fantastic and they still are if you can find them and The sour movement was really blew. Everybody away so much to the point that we might be tired of showers. I think i've seen some fatigue when it comes to like the really hardcore sours but yeah we owe a lot to Lawfully from new belgium and Russian river for a lot of the interesting barely age wild beers they they kind of pioneered that a lot of what we're enjoying now or have enjoyed has a little bit to do to thanks to them. Of course. these guys were inspired by the beers of europe belgium. Especially so yeah. You don't another point that you mentioned already was the barrel aged move that gives island started. Yes and the bourbon barrel aged beers that came out of that facility. That was new. That was big. I chased it for a while. Oh for sure and maybe that is. You should sell her by the way. Yeah yeah the interesting thing about that is the the bourbon barrel aged. Stoute's gained in popularity. Got hot well before. Bourbon actually got hot in the us so bourbon. His heart is can be right now in ridiculous prices for bottles. It's possible yes indeed. It's impossible to find some of my favorites. That i could buy directly off the shelf three or four years ago. They've got hot but back when the goose island was first doing this. You could buy the stuff for a song and people. Were really enamored with the result of beer going into the bourbon. But didn't care at all about the liquid and i i find that incredibly amazing and hilarious honestly so we should have been able to predict the bourbon. Have gone the way. It's gone. Just based on that alone the answer honestly it might be third way but i really like the assimilation of different yeast strains into craft beer so you mentioned wild ales earlier where it just that spontaneous fermentation i really liked the brute. Ip movement that came out of san francisco so that using that brut champagne yeast in the beer. Getting a really crisp clean dry finish. Ipa emily's who was a big a big part of that. So you got the emily's to Chew through a lot of those carbohydrates that that wouldn't ordinarily be chewed through and you got your yeast. That was a cool idea. I wish it would have taken off. But it was a cool innovation. I think my favorite innovation of all time is a from dogfish head sam. I always get his name collusion. Or i always muscles yeah anyway his continuous dry hopping that he pioneered for the ninety minute. Ip in which came before sixty minute which people don't realize it was an old like table. Top football game that he put hot i think hot pellets on he just let it shake duct tape over the the brew kettle. Let that shake it slowly drip hops into the kettle. The entire time it was going based on what i read he He was able to do about three or four times before thing fell apart because seriously got good wheel or something like that's it's such a great story so man so many great innovations since adam. You're really really into a coffee as well as barbecue and beer. I thought and i gave you a little heads up time on this one. What was the first coffee beer you ever had. So i was a while ago but the dragons milk line had a coffee version of. It really did way back. I remember that one. We recently did a coffee. Beer show. wasn't that recent. The coffee pairs really well with the barrel aged stuff. Oh chevron and then. I can't talk about coffee beers without mentioning the co lab. That apotheosis coffee did with ironmonger. That was a great beer and the cool out that one was was that it was almost a summertime coffee beer even though it was a dark stout it was. It was a six and a half percent. You could drink it and not just you know. Call it a day. It was really easy to drink a few still float around town. I been the first coffee beer. I don't know if. I remember the first coffee beer that i had so many beers ranking remember the first coffee beer. You had probably not. It might have been star hill. Maybe read ru star might have been the first one that really really nailed it. That the coffee and a beer is an amazing thing Really enjoy that when that came out so really quick guys wail beers like your bucket list beers. You have any time you can get apply any elder. You're doing all right there you go. I think right now for me. It's actually planning the younger. I'm going to second plenty of the yoga. Get teased about it a lot. But i just haven't had a chance to try out. Well i mean to get younger. You really kind of have to go over there and wait in line. Usually or one of the interesting. How about some draft is it Always say it wrong as a cascade cascade want to say s katya. But i'd love to get out there and have some of their stuff undrafted like the sour beers been there. It's a lot of fun if you love sour. It's a great place to go. It's a great. That sucks the teeth out of your mouth. So so yeah they definitely have that in spades. Absolutely well adam.

"beer" Discussed on Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast
"Ball the beer guys on facebook twitter and instagram. Next friday is a wyan shirt dick. So if you want to go ahead and where a hawaiian shirt and jeans now. Back to the beer guy's radio show and welcome back the beer guys radio issue. I wanna give a quick shout out to one of our great radio. Affiliates kb bdb hd three ninety six point seven fm in forks washington. Catch guys radio and k b db every saturday at two pm local time. now let's get back to classic american craft beer so to start things off. We talked about the oh. Jeez of craft beer. Who do you think about when you think about kind of the second wave people following that because that group is in its in a group of its own crowd of its own. It's kind of a rarefied air with beer. But there's big guys that are not are different era than today. You know what i'm saying. So i would count stellan in on that i would say stone definitely brought about the big. We're talking like ibew. Chasers like bomb chasers for the second wave so like belgium new belgium stone log. Anita's yeah i would count them in there for a while. They just own the ip game. They i think they grabbed it away. From stone in fact the stone owned it and then lags just snatched right away from nevada. Pale was my first pale ale. Anita's hop stupid was my first p. Oh wow that's that's the job. So how long until your second. Ipo have you had any more as have you experimented with those. I think i can taste hops again now. So then you've got the places out colorado. Avery comes to mind. Oh sure russian river out that way on the west coast. Amana started growing. Quick didn't it. Yeah oh yeah. Well you know during the nineties In the arrow going up towards the the The bussed in like ninety seven. They had a few years. Were bruce grown by like almost sixty percent a year. I mean it was huge. Went from like in the seventies like in the h- like an hundreds to being fifteen hundred or something like that the ninety five. I think that's about the the area may even higher than that a couple of thousand. It grew a lot. And we can't leave out in this group dogfish head. I mean they're kind of a big part of it. I you know what. I think that dogfish head and stone were not only. Are they big part of that second wave but they were huge portion of kind of like an extreme beer movement where to differentiate yourself from everybody else out there. You had to go big you. Had you had to pick something new. Something extreme lot of hops adjuncts lot of alcohol. That's this whole phase in there. Were the an extreme beer fest. You know that they came out. This started Towards the tail end of that. That whole extreme thing. Do you miss those days. Do you guys miss those days of just extreme crazy beers are you. I don't think they're over. i'm going to say. Are we missing them. I think we still have those. Yeah i don't know if it's quite the same now are extreme now. Is we just pick something and do it to death like fruit in a beer death. Well that's a good point. That's a good point. I guess we still have some of that. Leftover i i thought we were more kind of like we obsess on something and we just do it to death. Like lactose and everything. You know. Hazy everything you know dry. Everything seltzer everything fruit everything. That's crazy to see how things have gone. I guess we never really got out of the extreme. We just got a little bit more narrow minded about our extreme apologist shifted to a new beer style assault with ip as and you saw with the big beer competition. Brune competition where you know. We had a very narrow lane for ip as and now it's a very wide lane for ipa's treating that with sours. You're getting that with stout. You're getting that with all these different beer styles because that extreme is now shifting into these different beer styles. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Now you have an element of freshness in the game Before fresh epa is so much better than a little. I mean assist you start talking about the sierra nevada's or even the first we waters and those stuff were sitting in store for a while the knob draft. I mean a fresh a nice and citrusy man. I'm not gonna turn that down and crushes. You know that. That does remind me back in the day. When i first got into the atlanta area i was like i. I wasn't that into ips. At the time. I thought they were a little overdone. Little little over bowled little over a bidder and A buddy of mine who is also kind of more into the at the time with me like the the darker richer beers. He said well. If you go to sweetwater you have to have the ip there. You have to have it fresh like a really okay. I had you know what it makes. A difference and the idea of freshness with i mean people always talked about lou mixture fresh beer but it didn't mean anything but with the ip game it. It became a thing. And i don't know exactly when we all became aware of it. But now i obsessively check candidates and i won't buy something awful warm shelf if it doesn't have a date on it that i can verify it's not been there for three months. You know. unfortunately some of the beers we picked up for the show because they may sit around. Can't always be one hundred percent. Sure but a lot of these aren't ipa's which is an interesting thing. When you think about all the beers we've come up too so far along. These haven't been ipa's so it's it's interesting that ip's when did they really really take over. I guess is with the second wave right. Yeah i would say so the other nice thing i think that it imparts that you have a more. Well informed customer base. You have customers who know what they like but they also know about freshness and they know that fresh is best. And that's when you should be drinking these beers. I don't know i think people are folded. They are a little predator. One of them for sure you know and i think with the the whole extreme crazy in the second wave this is. This is the era where people started becoming geeky about beer. I don't think in the nineties i know. For fact i was not geeky about beer. I went to the Portland beer festival. And they had a little setup where they showed you the grain and hops in and all that stuff in those days in the late ninety s. I couldn't care less. I remember looking at that. I'm like i'll never remember any stuff. I'm just here to drink severe but You had these extreme beers come out. Especially the there was some limitation to him. Geeks arose and they swamped to this and You have the idea of course in aging beer that started growing up in. I know we talked earlier. Adam you've got an issue with seller beers ted you. Yeah i have to stop doing. It will explode. That's one problem. You got to be careful with that but most beer is not meant to be h. I mean unless you've got some like crazy like i dunno some stout reporter that was aged by monks. You know it's really meant to go on and on and on drink that beer drinking when it's fresh sedate. I do selami beers. It has been whittled down. Because i've been very conscious about trying to pull back not through recommendation but because i'm just spending too much money on beer. There's that too if that's such a thing but at least i'm not aging my ipa's all their stone enjoy after is thing it is. Yeah but you're supposed to enjoy shortly after okay now like three years now. So that stone enjoy after from two thousand fifteen. I should probably do something with it. I mean i'll try it with. You should at least pour it the before you pour it into the drain. Poor little into your mouth and make sure it's It's gone off but yeah yeah it's not gonna kill you yeah. Just don't stick the bottle in there too far.

"Guy's radio show welcome back to bear guys. radio show. All episodes are available on demand. So if you missed the broadcasts get the podcast beer guys. Radio is available in all popular and unpopular podcasting apps. Now let's get back to classic american craft beer so guys getting into this Next segment who do you think about when you think. Og craft beer like the original squad of craft beer. You got on the table right here. Well the yes. We do have a little bit of a cheat here. We we did open up an anchor. Steam beer anchors up. That's right. I mean that. The story of of anchors. There's american craft beer at its finest. I'm more familiar with southern crafts. But i mean you got to mention sierra nevada. Sure yeah we already mentioned sweetwater. Sam adams of course course yes. There's there's big ones we're missing out there. There's ones that. I don't even know because they never left their states before they went out of business. It's i a lot of people. Bring up new albion. We they started in seventy six or something like that. They didn't survive. But i think they are credited with creating maybe not the first but one of the very first american style. Ipa's out there. So we we do hear about that this dogfish head dogfish forget. Don't fish with sam adams. I almost kind of think of them. As being kind of the second part of the second wave in fact you know. Sam adams definitely part of the i. I always think of dogfish kind of coming in that dividing line in craft beer where we had the late nineties. Where things kind of took a hit. But then out of that though technically dogfish head did start before that happened. They didn't really get going until after that happened. So i mean. We got them mention to highland brew out of carolina highlands. They've been around for over twenty five years. There's just so many it's hard to even go over all of this thinker. That's the cool thing about anchor. I looked into that. A fair amount for this and That story is pretty amazing. The guy fritz maytag didn't start anchor but he was a big fan of the brewery and he had some good inheritance yet some some maytag money some family money and he heard that they were having trouble. They were circling the drain. Potentially going to go out of business is like hey. I'm going to invest. So he bought fifty one percent of the company thinking. All right i'll be involved in. This will save a beer that our love. I'll advise them well. Pretty quickly creditors came after him because well they needed some money and he had some money and he was the owner so the way i read it he almost immediately got into improving the quality of the beer to increase sales and From what i read it took him like a decade to actually break even or start turning a profit but he came out with so many crazy. I i mean just think anchor. Steam first american craft beer generally acknowledged nineteen seventy-one the anchor liberty mail the first modern ip nineteen seventy five anchor christmas the first seasonal beer in nineteen seventy five. He's also credited with the first american porter in one thousand nine hundred seventy two so all of these. I like when you think about. It's like i had no idea. I knew that they were early on and they really set the bar but they really came up with a lot of stuff. It blows my mind. How often do you guys drew. Wind up drinking an anchor. You even see them around very often. I mean this is my first anchor steam. In as long as i can remember and we even had a. Is that another one. Yeah hazy app over there. I didn't even know they made his. Epa you know it's funny. I saw that on the shelf. I was looking for anchor. I struck out where i was at. And i thought oh that's interesting. They're getting into the hazy. Ip a game and like. Oh that's weird. It turns out that they were one of the pioneers and dry hopping beers. They were dry hopping beers back in the seventies and early eighties before anybody even heard the term. It's amazing to me how much these craft brewers have affected the industry as a whole. Oh yeah i mean what. It's done to the big boys out there and the the innovations they've had to make and they were making products that people didn't know about yet the people didn't drink as out of nowhere. I mean i guess you can probably dig back and world war. Two people came back craving these beers they experienced in other parts of the world. But really i mean they were making stuff that they didn't know people were going to buy. Yeah and i gotta say to talk about craft beer versus macro. It is a little strange drinking anchor. Steam out of a can and craft beer cans. Go hand in hand. It does now true the threesome. In due to another pioneer in craft. beer dale's pale ale right before that. And that was exclusively only ever oskar blues. Got to get the name in there right. Only ever in cans in kind of normalized it before that. Everybody thought he as like. Oh you don't want cans. Mad beer goes into cans. Good beer goes and glass now completely. Everything's yeah now. It's the only reason people are doing glass right now because we've had show because it's so popular so it's amazing how things change over the years. Although i will say this. So i'm a retailer and i do still get customers coming in saying oh. I don't want that nakane and has that metallic flavor to it and in the entirety of my lifetime at least the entirety that i've been drinking in my lifetime. I've never had that metallic flavour advocate. Because of can now. I've had it in beers before but that's because of an off flavor. Yeah that's definitely something that it can occur when you brew improperly gets old budweiser. Yeah well they used to. I don't think they used to have the same kind of lining inside the cans back in the day as they do now. It's like a it's like a class lining or something. Some interesting polymer or something like that but Manso back in those days. Back anchor in the seventies were less than one hundred breweries in the us at one point time. Nineteen seventy eight. There was just like eighty nine apparently while it's amazing to think how far down at once that's at the very beginning of craft beer. Now we've got eight thousand eight hundred and eighty four as of twenty twenty the latest figure ice on that and it wasn't until two thousand fifteen that the brewery count exceeded the number of breweries. That were here in the us in eighteen seventy three. So that shows you how much beer and general dropped in the us in the twentieth century you know and the late nineteenth century so it's pretty devastating so four thousand one hundred thirty one breweries in eighteen seventy three. We never have of magin there. Were that many bruce in the us in that in that period of time so where they craft. I think they would qualify if they're around today because there were neighborhood stuff. It wasn't consolidated. So i mean at least microbreweries. Do you think that number dropped. Because of prohibition oh for sure i mean obviously the i was looking at a line and and it drops to the floor during prohibition and it takes a long time to recover from that peru's you can't stop making beer and still stay afloat and then thirteen years later. Oh you know. Hey sell beer. Turn off the taps. Know everybody's gone everything sold so well and also like the legislation didn't support burs anymore. I mean look at georgia. It wasn't until twenty fifteen. We will start doing some to go beers from our breweries. And now i mean it's great that we have that modern day. Take on what you can get away with going to a brewery. But coming right outta prohibition you know thirteen years after the fact i'm sure breweries just were completely stonewalled from going into anywhere. Now we're spoiled can't keep track of which ones are out there now. You look at a board somewhere and it's it's new beers every day. Yeah it's one six. Yeah there's a little bit of analysis paralysis for option fatigue or something you go in there and boy. I used to be really into that habit. Just because it's new. But now i kind of want i just want to..

Swag and commercial free episodes. Now let's get back to philly beer week and fargo bar christina. We want to talk to you a little bit about as we mentioned in our new segment earlier in the show and we talked about on last week. Show there's a huge reckoning craft beer right now with issues of sexism. Racism just inequality and philly loves beer wasn't impacted by some of the recent Accusations or stories that were shared there. Can you tell us about what's changed. Philly loves beer and what's going to change going forward. I mean i want to say that. Obviously you know as a woman in the industry. I feel like this is a long time coming. We all knew it. These issues had to be addressed. And i'm happy for a lot of things that came out of cova so what was also interesting. Is that when you kind of. Start looking for okay. What's out there already. What can we kind of follow code of conduct or guidelines and things like that. There's not a lot out there right now so we acted pretty quick in philly. Loves beer board got together and created a code of conduct and also event guidelines. We knew we wanted to do before. Philly beer week permitted worked over the weekend and we got it done in a handful of days. So it's on our website now and you can download those as well. We want everyone participating in philly beer week to know what we're expecting their events and we also feel like these materials will be really good. You should have code of conduct in your bars burglaries. You'd know what to do as well so it's not just philly beer week. This is a good thing for you to have as a business you know what. Put myself out there and say that. There's something i know i have done. I've been at burris. And i've been hanging out with my friends and i'll be talking with someone talking with a female employee of the brewery and some little say she's brewer and i know for a fact that went. Oh before like i. I'm surprised. I do not mean disrespectful. In the least. I don't mean to but i know that with the challenges that women face in the burri industry it can be taken as you know. Why are you surprised. I'm a brewer. There are there other intangibles. Are things that maybe you don't realize that you can think of that. Are something to keep an eye out for. You're right it is just like that little surprise. I think a a really annoying wants to me when a server or bartender tries to then explain the beer to me. I haven't asked. I've just ordered it straight out like oh you know that has like that's a sour beer right like i'm good this right knowing one. Yeah yeah the company that owns beer guys. Ready to one of our owners is female Becky smalls gsa. But there was a local beer bar restaurant here. That said any time any of you are in the area. Please stop by. We'd love to see a. She reached out and said she was in the area. She stopped in her and her boyfriend and she asked can. I speak to so-and-so the manager there and he came over to the table and immediately started talking to her boyfriend and she said all. I'm with beer guy's radio and that and he's like oh okay and went back to talking to the boyfriend you know and becky knows as much if not more about anybody. She's a hose no bruce. She's expressed frustrations without in the beer industry. Recently that it's just even something to civilised trying to like you said trying to order a beer and someone explain it to you. I mean there's certainly people who deserve to be called out for things that they've donner what they're over the course of time. I think that one of the good things as it's bringing awareness like you said you didn't realize that you may be saying something that might be slightly offensive. I think it's bringing awareness that people. Wow okay the should be. This is on me as well. You know so. I think there's some good things that can come about from that aspect as well. There's certain big things we all know are wrong. Even the people that are doing them no they're raw at the time. Honored by some stuff that you know that. I'll look back on and be like oh can i could've been sure not intended but Yeah it's it's something maybe you've picked up over time be over the many years you've been alive. Things were different in. The past are different now than you know affects how you behave. Yeah we'll christina. Thanks for talking about it. Sharing what philly love beers dawn and we're hoping the the industry as a whole can move forward. Get better the human being. You can do it the little things that are harder. Yeah like changing that there are. Women brewers like. I'm a woman who runs a beer organization right now but Yeah i mean sadly we're learning that they're just like not. There's a lot of like really creepy people. Additionally yes be better human. You know if you don't on the flipside of that. I have tried to be positive or we have to have female. Brewers minority brewers everybody on our show. You know so the things that i think about. We tried to do the best we can. It's the things that. I sometimes don't think about that right. I can slip up on. Yeah i do be mindful of moving forward. Sure absolutely trying to do better each time. So something. I saw the in the course of looking into this There's a a safe bar certification. What is this. What is it safe bar rich do you. I know you looked into it. Did you want to explain that more. It's a program that this company a. I'm not sure if their local affiliate if there's a a War but they'll come in. They'll go over possible scenarios. They'll go over things you need to focus on things you need to pick up on cues. Maybe you'd miss the kinda. Make sure that everyone who is a customer and employ. Everyone is safe and everyone feels safe. So it's it's something that i think a lot of us can do. There's a few bars of did it already. There's a bunch more that are gonna do it. I'm sure that myself included. We're looking to see how we can get them here to kind of go over the training whenever they have you know. I'm sure they're inundated now because people are aware that they need to do these trainings profit. So that's kind of what it is. It will help us as a white male. Pick up on things that i may have never noticed before you know that that maybe someone someone's giving me that hugh that i never picked up on that just like we were saying here. Sometimes it may not be met that way but that doesn't mean it's not offensive to someone. It's true so what are some things. Do you guys have some ideas. And some things that all venues can do to ensure that they're both safe and inclusive to all people who want to go there and have a good time well. I think that you should know who's working there. You know like. I think it's important to know who the staff is. If there is a problem.
"beer" Discussed on Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast
"Follow. The beer guys on facebook. Twitter and instagram boy escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fans now back to the guy's radio show welcome back to show wanna give a quick out to one of our great radio affiliates. Ww dc hd. Two one zero four point seven. Fm and one zero one point one fm in washington dc catch beer guys radio on ww dc. Every saturday at five pm now. Let's get back to philly beer week and vargas bar philly beer. Wake wake yes. Okay very well. That's what happens after beer week. You drink too much. You have affiliate beer. Wack against that website is typos your idea. Right there was an idea but it's a bad idea. We're very proud of our track record of giving bad ideas every show. I've heard some of them. Thank you thank you. thank you very much. The event to like people liked to have like you gotta go out with beer. Yes of event that has been the closing event of beer weeks of the past like i don't even on the years. That's all the todd the tide. Okay the total unnecessary. Drink that i get you. I get you the last night of beer week and you shouldn't even be outlets. Yeah drinking at that point. And it's you feel a little proud and a little embarrassed for the people that show up to that event. Always exclusively industry right. No one else ever shows up because they have no idea how fun see th day and that's philly beer wake just after the eleventh day of the week really. It's just something else. Yeah the well. That's one thing. Brian noted earlier. Like you call it a beer week but you're already out of pocket right out of the gate. So have you been to philly we. We say we'll watch out so i just learned to philly word recently. Gosh john yeah. I yeah it means like this thing here or something like that is that right means anything. Anything sharp john. We'll get that john about this john here okay. John trimmed up. I saw an instagram account. I think it's called sam boehner's and these guys do sandwich reviews like the go hoagie reviews and they go around and they're like check out his john right here. I was like what is so. I had to google and find out what that was a definition for john. I think it said it can mean literally anything can be this thing that thing or whatever so and i watched a few more videos and they may use it. I saw one guy like he made a gravy sandwich and he caught it john and this other guy. It's philadelphia is basically a smart village. They just john instead of smurfs. We'll thing john. John's all right the Yes so tell us more about philly. John week so christina. What does it take because we talked a little bit on. Break here that Atlanta's struggled with their beer league. We've struggled to have a good cohesive beer week We try to fortnight that incorporated some other cities. We have good little bruins centers in athens savannah georgia. But we just couldn't make click right. So what's the key to a successful beer. We dedicated industry like the bars and restaurants and venues. That's what we're truly makes beer week. It takes a village truly takes the entire city. And that's what's super cool. And i think that's why philly is so strong in that sense because everybody does something for it. I'm just the coordinator of which isn't the easiest job is totally post ovid. It's just right now but yeah. The bars and restaurants are fantastic. They're super jazz to always do they look forward to it and obviously we hope this is true this year. It's agree moneymaker get people out. We always try to encourage people like you don't have to know about the year. Just come out and and drink are actually occurred someone. Today he drinks beer but he's like an amstel light guy. And i mentioned you know. Philly beer lives in philadelphia. So i said going out the philly beer week you said when is analyzing it's coming up and pay attention to. What's i told him of. This show was going to be about philly beer week. So shout out to patrick. Go out and drink some philly. Beerman drinks year man with it. See it varga. See that's right. I think probably the problem. We may have had here. Is we had an organizing people that tried it. Mandate what was going to happen. I get the feeling with philly. Loves beer that you kind of just let people say hey. We're doing this and then you say all right great. We're going to help you know promote that is that kind of it is just let people do what they want to do. In a given period of time. Just say hey. We're doing this week. What do you wanna do. basically. I'll explain it from my point of view and then i can tell you how he kinda runs his so philly loves beer affiliated Usually kicks off with john. Event called opening tap. And it's about seventy breeze. We keep that one local. And then it's about fifteen hundred people. It's an indoor event so it will not be happening this year. And that's how it's kicked off in philly looks. Beer runs that event. And then we'll have a few other events that are specific to philly. Loves beer like we do art on beer which is different beer can arts and labels and things like that will pick six different worries panel forum kind of discussion so we have some marquee events but then yeah places like ara will just be like. Here's the ten things i'm doing. Okay that could be. This is our beer week. What do you got going on because over here we tried to introduce structure. You know certain days certain regions. And i think that's been other attempts to control the thing. I think you got to let people participate the way they want to participate. That's kind of the feeling i'm getting. That might be what they're doing right that we haven't in the past historically done well here. Okay radically just my thoughts on your thoughts out there. It's easier for rich to tell me what he wants to do. Versus me like. Hey you know this. That for aleki knows way better than i do. Breweries are venues. Do they pay to be promoted as part of philly beer week so in the past. We were membership base. You know back when life was good but getting in you know industry was like we decided to do a membership structure with levels and it worked out again because you were year round with us. So yeah you. If what you're doing during beer week we'd be going to your events and we would be parole them all year round. Makes us this you. Obviously we cannot charge breweries and restaurants to be in. So we're just doing our best with the little money we have and we're still going to pull it off but it's a little different. i think. Riches idea if you wanna survive this christina. Thank you need to buy a bar. There you go. That's the plan there. So i got a. That's okay you know christina. One thing i think is kind of key. Is your with philly loves beer full-time how much time you personally spend coordinating and promoting the beer week now. Normally about this time. I would have about five other people working with me so cashiers very strange but we start like opening. Tap itself is such a large event that we have to start planning very early. We've already locked down. The venue were at the fillmore in philadelphia. So we've had a contract with them. Twenty twenty twenty one twenty two and so now we've pushed it. It'll start twenty two twenty three twenty four gotcha factor so from an article. I read about this that you were quoted in you said that events should engage entertain and educate the people who are involved in it. What's an example of an event that does all of those things rich events..
"beer" Discussed on Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast
"Follow the beer guys on facebook twitter and instagram bombs. Now back to the beer guy's radio show welcome back to the beer guy's radio show remember. All episodes are available on demand. So if you missed the broadcast get the podcast beer guys. Radio is available on all popular and unpopular podcasting apps. Now let's get back to philly beer week and philly beer and varga bar. That's a lot of stuff. That's so christina. The first question which came first. Billy loves beer philly beer week by far philly beer week. Okay all right so philly beer makes its fourteenth year and it is america's largest and oldest beer week. Is that a true statement. That is a true statement. I haven't heard differently. Okay we'll roll with that. Yeah no one's refuted this week's only been around for fourteen years. I really thought. Oh philly beer. Week must have been rapper fifty years. Oh yeah yeah in this country figure ben franklin started. I mean like something he would. Do you know the last time. I was in philly on magin. It's a regular occurrence. But i was pretty stoked actually saw ben franklin walking around you know just a couple of them. I think we're down to one now. Okay yeah yeah. I'm a fan of phillies pretzels elected. You can get him anywhere. The philly soft pretzels like they're just I don't know why we don't have them everywhere. We don't have them right here. I'll eat them any time. Honestly anytime for any reason the water. That's like new york pizza. They got the water to make good. It's the the water for the philly pretzels. It's true i've heard if you've tried to make it here with our water. Disintegrates just tear it can't show water yeah it's dangerous. It is or christina. How did philly loves beer get started. How old is philly loves. Beer is going on its sixth year. Six and a half. i'll go. Yeah okay yeah yeah. Billy loves beer six years philly beer week. Fourteen years a lot of growing and growing and growing pains since then but surreal thing juror. An what's the mission of philly loves beer you know. Essentially we are a marketing arm for local breweries and bars and restaurants and venues carrying beer. We celebrate beer from all over the place. If you're familiar with drinking here we got a lot of awesome res coming in and coming in on tap we also dip into beer education and we love to throw parties. That sounds like a noble mission. I don't have a bad job. let me tell you. There's worst places to be. Yeah now rich. I think i saw correctly varga bars been around awhile but you just purchased it recently. Is that correct. We just celebrated our twelve anniversary. I've been here for all of them. But i've caught in the middle of the pandemic. That's a good move discount. Shows that shows faith in believing in what you got there so with that with that. That sounds good right plan. I don't know how many people familiar with your artwork is vargas. Is that correct. So the idea behind it when the previous owner opened was he wanted to do all american craft beer so we were the all american girl ups. You know back in the day and we haven't yet this year maybe were still on hold for next year. But we've always done a pin up calendar and the sa- tigers rotate with local staggers local. Girls wanna do it. We throw a big party. And the proceeds go to the while they have been in the past the uso. Okay gotcha military base. Kind of thing with a pinup girl. We had to postpone last year because of covid. Russ you're just getting things up and running in. The whole point is to power the women who are in it so to throw a big party is the goal. So that's why it hasn't happened this year. Again gotcha okay. Still under restrictions restrictions. Here on yes. I had a decca vargas cards that my mother gave me a belong to my grandmother and split up with a girlfriend who moved out and in between all of that they just disappeared. So but i had a really nice deck of argus cards that they're cool. Have you seen those you familiar with. I'm actually not familiar with them. I didn't get the reference at all. I don't know how this though if you look behind the on the ceiling. I did notice that yeah. It's a local artists. Rendition of specific. Alberto vargas okay. Do you have any authentic vargas in their did dip into get any of those. We have two paintings in the bathrooms. But they're still on the wall. So i can't imagine they're they're real. I was going to say it's an interesting place that puts something that really valuable. Yeah we had a bar here where someone stole. A fish poster from the The the band fish from the bathroom and it was apparently from a rare concert. Very near and dear heart of brewer. And so that caused quite a kerfuffle. So yeah i would imagine i would imagine so is vargas been the bar been involved with Philly beer week right along or is is this new for you to get involved so when we opened reopened we are. We had missed the week for that year but the year after we were certainly in. It's like christina sentence. just it's great. Because i mean the focus for us as american beer so sits right in with that. But it's also you get to throw some ridiculous parties we've had some of the best brewers in the world and this country to come and make it a point to come to philly beer week so it's like we get people like sam from dogfish head automated. You get like these guys that we the event with jim cook from sam adams. He's fun. yeah it was like thirty five only a little barbecue and just talked about beer. Yep that kind of stuff so people outside of philly can participate. Can they just set up there. Or i mean. Obviously don't have venues saturday. Set up their own events or do they have to collaborate to be involved her. How does that work. I mean basically. So you're works. I'm sure as you know. We have the reps on the ground and breweries in philly or outside of philly. That still have reps in philly so they will set up events like directly with fargo or rich will say i'm gonna feature this rury one night and then we'll try to get the brewers in people coming in and that'll be the event you know so yeah anybody can get on and luckily like i said the bars in philly are always looking for to get some beers and so you're week is a huge draw so we can usually get the people who make the beer and there with them so this is something that maybe want you to know. Because i've always wanted this and never got a clear answer. I know that russian river like pliny. The elder is like california in philly philly. And i'm drinking. I'm drinking a blind pig. How did you guys How did you guys get special treatment to get. Those russian river treats over there. Well i'll be honest. I mean as a as a person who's worked in a bar now own a bar. There's a lot of people that came before me and they're still around. That did a lot of really great and heavy lifting for me okay. There you go legwork. So there's there's relationships that have been built with. You know for instance. Someone like tom over. Monks that the rest of us really just benefit of. That's it if it's incredible with respect. The elders right. You got to talk about that in georgia beer because just over the last few years our laws and improved to the point where arbor's can actually sell beer four years ago. They couldn't do that. Sell beer from the brewery and we look at spike from terrapin spike. And john terrapin or you know sweetwater all these breweries that they fought through it. We're all you do. Give a tour and a tasting and you had to go through district when had do all of this and they're the ones that that laid the groundwork and fought for twenty five years so berries could sell a very and you know we went from like forty breweries in like two thousand seventeen to a hundred and fifteen or so in the state. Now you know so. We've still got some growing room but it's really done. Great things for.
"beer" Discussed on Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast
"Were broadcast for the beer guy's radio studios in marietta georgia in this week. We're talking philly beer week with philly. Loves beer and varga bar. I'm tim denison with me. Has always as my good friend and co host. Brian hewitt tim joining today. We have christina down. The executive director of philly loves beer and rich collie the owner of varga bar a participant in philly. Beer week as you said. We are going to talk about philly beer week and what it's all about how it's been so successful and we'll probably touch on some consumer beer literacy and maybe even some weird beer guys. Thanks for joining us. It's good to have you. It was a big sacrifice for brian to do the show tonight and got stuck in a garage. I did before the show so the door refused to open it his condo building and he was just he was just talking to garage there. So push-button stuff is neat until the push-button stops working and nothing that will open it up right. It's like when the wi fi goes out and you can't turn on your lights anymore. It's fantastic terrible. He actually have to flip switches. And if you even remember how to do it. Or what are they even are. Yes we'll christina were. We're getting into some beers here. What are you drinking. I see you enjoying a beer there. Yeah i'm drinking a lump city deep. Cut pills now there. We go okay. Let's city is in the loft district. They call themselves erasure addicts district. I believe okay. Yeah fairly new few years two years old oak. Actually you know. The founder had brewer is from iron health. How that very spun off of breweries. I'm also drinking a former iron. Home brewers well okay delta lager there. We've talked before. I'd love to see just a pedigree of some breweries like here in atlanta sweetwater and tappan are the two that so many berries spun off. There was a i forget who it was. But someone was to a girl from columbia and he was down in medigene. And there's a berry there and he goes in and check it out in the burbs from sweetwater liking is one of the first three employees sweetwater. And he's got a million columbia now. They're just all over the place. Just that's where you go. I mean they make a lot of beer and a lot of people move through there so it's kind of cool. I bet they do some weird beers columbia don't you. Oh yeah. I bet they do. You know speaking of weird beers brian. I wish i had a time machine. And i could go back like a month in uninvite back brewing on the show for what they have done to craft beer ready to hear about. Okay let's let's for this. Are you ready. I'm going to tell you that the style and you just let me get your thought. Hot dog water goza right so this beer is a smoked wheat ale with mustard seeds and quote unquote dry hopped with sun dried tomatoes. Then it is dosed with a de fatted hot dog water reduction so there's legit hot dog water in this beer. Was this an idea. We gave them on the show. You know i think we talked about. I don't remember if it was our idea. Or if he's like oh. I've talked about crazy beers. Marijuana legal were there no. It doesn't mean yeah. yeah so. We did have a hotdog a local brewery do hotdog beer here with like a sheets. We've wow on june with that as we have creek brewing. I believe and they did a hotdog beer with that. Okay let's yeah. I must've lied. Did not try it. So i'm gonna try said there's one k they've got one six to love it and he said there's no tasters if you're going to drink it you got to commit to. That's it tells you something like no tasters like that. Means that people would never buy it if they got that's right. He's like if you're going to do this. You're going to do it. Don't come here half hearted man enough to commit to that full pint. If only they were nearby. I would get out of pure self torture. I i wanna try. Sundried tomato sim as i do with the sun dried tomatoes and it and that was good. Okay christina what is the strangest beer you have had or you have tried you know. Actually i was in maine. And i can't remember the name. It was like a firm terry type place. And i had a spot show beer. I gotta be honest. It was spot on. It truly tasted like a spa. Okay part i don't know about. And i was like i had like a shot glass worth you know if i made it a taste. It was like wow. I mean it was the name it did it and then i was like i'm cool. That's a good shot glass rich. how about you. What's the strangest when you've had. I'm going to say we actually had on tap here. It was a six point beer. I believe it was a smoked salmon. Licken high normally. okay all right which. I'm sure there's a reason that maybe that's the only one ever seen right. Yeah it was fifty fifty either people thought it was the thing that they never wanted to put in the mouth again or they have multiple horrors of it. We had on during beer week and are just remember for me. I was maybe Side of didn't care for much. Yeah i would certainly try the style again. Because i mean that was very interesting so we tried one here. That one of our friends brought in to share with us. He'd gone to iceland. And i'm not gonna say the name right but it's like avelar. But it was. I think like logger with sheep. Dung smoked well testicles. Ooh it might have been an amber. I don't remember yeah. Yeah and you know when we got the beer. It was past his prime. You tasted a little oxidized banal honesty. It was just a little smoking and briny. Yeah and so. That was it. So i would love to see the guy who tries to present that to his boss in iceland. How weird is that. is that like. It's not weird. Because they eat like fermented shark that's right. It's like a delicacy there so a sir strumming beer in that would be the loot fist. And i mean you know you mentioned your paci. O'brien is notorious for his Sun dried tomato and basil goza that he made one time. It actually paired really nicely with pizza. It was kind of like rich. You said people either loved it are they never wanted to see it again was actually as on. Its because its name was johnny cezanne. Yeah yeah we had one friend that told us he's like i think you guys absolutely nailed what you're going for and i never wanna drink it again. So we're like all right. That's that's fair. that's fair. Well tim i think at this point. We need to get into the beers of the week. You got it now. It's time for our fears of the week brought to you by the net craft beer and barbecue and downtown kennesaw georgia the nest kennesaw dot com. O'brien as always been a nice list of beers to get into here. Of course. We had to have a couple of philly beers by stephen pete and the pete family recently opened kettle rock berlin. He usually stops into to join us for the of the show. Check it out. We have a kennel rock. Hawaiian islands variable conditions sour. That we're going to get into right now. We're drinking. Iron hill chewy northeast. Pa and we've got a victory brotherly love from our show a few weeks ago little philly beer there so we're ready to philly up here. We're ready for it so we've got some more in the fridge but those are the three we have on deck right now. We've got big crowds and big dollars. It's ample beer. It is ample beer so brian. how.

Show the show the reunion show so we cracked open small. This is a beer. You brought level five which we thought was appropriate because we are now level five. The show and this is part of monday nights garage club. Which is they're kind of like the reserve society their special bottle society right right. Yeah so you get. i think. it's aaron remembers. i can tell you. They started when he started out on doing Basically bleeds eight beers over a year. And it would be completely one off base fibro batch of something super cool super interesting and was only available to garage club members and yeah so i want to say that i was the impetus start that thing so happy about the secret society so viscose a chance for for the remastered. Monday night to just goof around do something cool and show their stuff and most times abe. They're hits on the dupree. Well when so. That's what we're sipping on right now. We got a little level five beer sour cherry brown. It is a cherry vanilla mix culture sour brown ale crazy man. It's really good though really good. Beer guy's radio level five five years did it looks like we made. It started from the bottom. Now we're drinking beer so you know aaron. As as the years have gone on to question we get a lot of people get to notices. How did all this started. How'd you meet. How'd you get started so aaron. You're the program director at a local radio station correct. I was kind of tell us what started. What got you interested in getting a beer show. Yes so. I had been working in radio. Gosh my whole entire career. So and i'd worked at this Am radio station for about a ten years. Now and I don't know if you guys know and listen to radio stations. But sometimes there's gaps in programming and We had some major gaps in our programming. And so i said to my general manager of the time i said. Hey can i do a radio show. And he was like yeah. Sure what the heck. And i said gonna wanna do online. It's like wow do a beer show and considering this was a christian based radio group bald move cotton camp as i had an awesome general manager. So mike moran wherever you are. Shout out to your awesome. But he was like sure. Go ahead and do it. So i had the idea mind had the time slot. It kind of had all the stuff in place i needed to get a co host. I'm not sure how we met. I can't remember that's right so you had the ties. Radio shacks right. That's right and tim. Vincent was a friend of the cigar guys in that and so mutual friend. He's like hey if you're going to do a beer show. You should give this tim a shell. Yup and we met up at five seasons. We did remember that hash things out and say all right. Let's go ahead and do it. Yeah sorry p five and yeah. We kind of put put together with some duct tape and spit. You know your fans you gotta producer and all that kind of stuff our own studio you get your pseudo that you don't get yelled at if you drink cast and you know because we used to tape in our in on my radio station studios and of course taping in a christian radio station with beer sometimes. It's frowned upon by people. Who don't know so on that note. We'll we'll fast forward a little bit here. We were on there for about three years. Craton t two thousand eighteen. That's correct and actually we know when it will tell you this story and you can judge for yourself. What went down here. Aaron got the job opportunity. Monday night brewing and he left the radio business after all these years. Got out of the radio business in the station and said you know you guys go on with the show. That'd be great. While a few months later. I believe you said that the words were something along the lines of fitting within their moral moral values moral compass something along there was something along those lines Somebody chirp to the higher ups. Basically is what happened so long story short. We got a victim. Yeah we got somebody sauce. Who video and i feel terrible about that. I was like what the heck. I just felt also undercut by that too but you know we as you guys are recovered and did it did gypsy radio for awhile. He's right onto different breweries different locations. We did that. We were friends with the owner and ironmonger bruin were our studios are now and we started out just kind of coming in here in doing shows. Occasionally we didn't really have anything official and then they're like. Hey you can use basically our spare room here which had a round table and a bunch of construction debris on the floor but it worked for us. You know it was. It was our student rickety. Yeah exactly but but you can pop gushers. It'll be okay. The the acoustics weren't great. But if you spilt something and so be it. But through that partnership we developed in that partnership now actually do have an official studio nicely. Decorated out gorgeous oak table and mike's and soundproofing and everything in here so We do appreciate the niece bernice as our mascot. She always looks over things there in the corner so wearing her baseball cap in viking helmet. Combo as you do yeah. It's cold out there. I am most impressed by the to beer. Fridges y'all you have to at least two fridges. And if you noticed we have two fridges and still have beer on the counter. And then you've got some other things behind me that i'm just noticing as well over there so let's zoom meetings right. Yeah so but that's it. That's that's kind of how we got from there to here. Aaron i met through the radio show through the mutual thing ryan you and i met years ago through the cigar cigar small we met through and mutual. Flynn read it kinda and That's how we all kind of came together and made the beer guy's radio show happen so and there was a cigar show. I was involved in that nor was to be no. That's right that's right exactly well. They're not thinking much right now but think that's right. i mean you know. i'll. I'll tell folks what brian's alluding to they're both the gentlemen that hosted that show passed away since then and while neither one of them were that old so they really weren't so surprising anyhow. That's the history of beer. Guy's radio brian in a nutshell. In case you didn't know down on let's let's talk about beer win. Sixteen so erin. I know you remember this. We had this conversation a lot about. Ipa's and i just said my blanket state ones. I don't like ipa's and you've changed your. I have but i have changed to. This is true this. That's where the thing is when we did this. I think i don't remember the exact launch date of tropicalia but that's the reason that we had tropicalia today. Because i think this is referencing. Our local beer seen here but that was a pivotal beer for georgia. It was the first time we had those. Tropical flavors are not still. Has that that bitter west coast kind of backbone to a brought the tropical flavors upfront and that really made people outside of georgia look at georgia. Hey what's going on there. it also. It made our other brewer step up and newbury's had to kind of follow that bar exactly. I know it's funny. Member and tropicalia first came out. The you go to a party and the other person in the party was a beer person. And they'd like sneaky when the corner and the came in. I i gotta growl their tropicalia in the back. You on some like. He didn't want to keep him out a secret. He will fight for the hand they were. Yeah yeah exactly. And you know and creature. Commerce has done a fantastic job that you know. It's now very ubiquitous across georgia and they're opening up a place in california dividend. great without. I think.
