"My most meaningful representation personification of the book. And it's so widespread now. I wore this particular shirt I have on now. Kawhi brewing company in Kauai, Hawaii. I wear this shirt actually for a reason. We went through on vacation. There are a couple of months ago, and I went into quad brewing company, and they actually had the pink boots IPA that was brewed this year on tap there, and a young lady behind the counter, and I said, I'm in it. That's the pickle. And she was thrilled that I knew what pink boots was. You know, on she told me whole story, she got the participate in the brood day and everything like that. It was really nice, nice, nice to be able to share that with her. And to hear that from her. Yeah, well, go ahead. Oh no. Good. Oh, well, my brain's going in all these directions. So then I do have questions. Really cool stories that unfortunately didn't make the edit. It made the book. Yeah, you know, I managed to get most, I can't even say that. There are a lot of quotes and details and aspects that I could have elaborated about people, like you, Alexis, for instance, or one of my favorite quote machines. Ever and you know that I know you say it at night. This generates a question. Oh my God. You know what? Your first TV interview was on my show, wasn't it? What's on tap? Yes. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. You're awesome on TV and radio. I love listening to you. Thank you. So lots of quotes and things that I didn't. That I had to cut. There were people I had to cut and people lots of people who had to be cut, but some like I was very conscious of having to cut. Just because I only had a certain amount of space, right? And luckily I didn't have to do, well, and there were just people who would come to mind as I was writing or people whose stories just tried and tried and tried and tried and tried to find the place for and couldn't. So a couple of things like that had to get cut out. In fact, just because as someone who made the cut, it is humbling. As I read the book and see myself included with these tightness of this industry, whether they were known or not, it is wild to me to be able to be like, oh, well, look at me. With these women that I like, so admire, so, you know, from my perspective. It's amazing. One of the things. Fun, yeah, I'm grinning at you. You can't see what you can't see that on the radio. That is really interesting. You did not, you were not only in America, the United States, you were all over the place. What's the most fascinating country that you went to in the beers that you've tried? Oh, that's a really good question too. There you go. I do that. My journalism back then. First of all, you know, honestly, because of the pandemic, I just got to go to a few foreign countries, but that's not true. You know, I say that. I had to leave out a few that I expected to go to, but in all that pre interviewing I was doing, remember I said that it took me a couple years to write the proposal. Whenever I would travel somewhere, I would try to incorporate book research before I started officially writing. You know, when I travel my wife, do I incorporate the research like that, but it never goes in a book. You notice when he air courted that. For anybody. So yeah, I mean, I got to do research in the national library of Scotland. In the bar there? Right outside. Wow. So that is a joke. Come on now. Scotland. Scotland is not known for its beer, normally. You know what I was researching mostly in Scotland? Was which is? Yes, actually, scotch. It was a scotch trip. Oh, okay. Yeah, which is. Because Scotland has a good registry of the people who were caught up as victims of the witch trials in Europe. And so they Scotland's had a lot of tribunals around the country. There were a lot of people getting tried as witches and accomplices and such and Scotland. So it was a cool place to go and you know they've got those big spooky castles and whatnot. The jails right next to them. It's cool. Trying to go to jail next to a castle, that could not be. Any more creepy. Yeah. It's true. The dungeons, wow. I mean, that's like what defines creepy, right? At least as far as spaces go, maybe. Well, anyway. Yeah, we ran out of space in prison. So we're just gonna throw in a dungeon next door. With the dragons. Social? So what are we drinking? We talked about drinking. Well, before, in the first hour. We were drinking a couple sours, which you may have to crack into another one. Feel free, man. We've got two more sitting there, lots more. We drank actually speaking of Northern California, one of the two beers we just drank is a goza from Anderson valley in booneville, Northern California, not too far, not far at all from the area we're talking about. Oh, and I forgot to say the importance of new Albion, the beer, the brewery that made that beer, I was talking about the red tail originally. Is it new Albion as you all know, but some of the listeners might not is that that was the first ground up craft brewery in the United States after prohibition. My God, when you said ground up, I thought to myself, where are we going? From the ground up, not, oh, they ground it up. Sorry. Yeah, your girl's off. Off topic. Ground up. Where did it ground up? Well, that's a good point, 'cause I say ground up, but you guys both.

"Totally fine. Chris, tell me about what's your go to? What drink do you have if you're not drinking beer? What do you want to drink? Coffee. Coffee? Yeah. Okay. It's like coffee and beer. That's it. Coffee and beer. Coffee beer water. I try to stay away from sugary stuff. I get my fill with beers and yeah, coffee, coffee, coffee until it's time to drink beer. I just came back from I was in the island of Kauai, Hawaii. And I visited Kauai coffee plantation, which is the largest coffee plantation in the United States. Wow. Yeah, I don't know how many thousands and thousands of acres. So I thought I was big. I was bringing home gifts of all of the coffee to everyone, you know, fresh coffee beans in it. So I brought it all back on my carry on and I went through on the carry on and they had to open it up of course and check everything to make sure I wasn't carrying any illegal in the coffee and everything. So the carry on smell great when they opened it up. Sure. So I wrote home and go, yeah, you get some heads, so I'm in acne the other day. And I see you on a shelf quite closely. The same damn coffee, but you're just like your smuggling kilos. Pressure. And I think it was probably cheaper. Probably. Probably. But then it's the plane ticket. So I know there's festival seasons coming up. I know that oyster creek. First time I actually met Chris was at a festival before he would open. Very astute about the merchandising and actually register and was there promoting the brand promoting the logo and the merchandise before before he had even opened up. And it wasn't even like a month before. No, we were at 6 months out before the year before you opened, I think. Yeah, it was even more than 6 months. It was probably like 9 months before we were still looking for contractors to come in and do work because every guy we had come in was like, yeah, sure, I'll give you a call back. And you never hear from again. But yeah, I love this festival season. I love beer fests. To be outside, especially the outside ones. To be outside. And serving beer and people coming up and really giving you people who've never tried your beer before, giving you real-time feedback. It's great. It's a lot of fun. It's a lot of work. It's a long day or a long two days. We're coming up festival season. And which ones are you going to be at? A lot of them down here, but Atlantic City is Atlantic City is two months away. It's two months away. We got less than two months now. We got beach haven. In two weeks. And some of these are for charities because that's where the department and beach haven, which is on Long Beach island. Yeah, we just signed on for there's another one in times of our quarks and kegs. And then when we did last fall, but now they just had been in the spring, but they had done it in the fall was Bridgewater beer fest, which is for a one you want to know. Yeah, it was cool. It was very cool one. Small. Like maybe 25 breweries or so. But the usual suspects, you had bolero there, you had Icarus there. Trying to get some of the names of the people. But it's like everybody, but it was very nice, small profession. And I think the weather kind of brought that one down. So I expect this year if the weather's nice to be a little bit bigger. No matter Hopkins is in Manhattan. That's probably our favorite just because it's our local beer fest. It's right on the Lake. They have to benefit the PBA. Yeah, and so many good breweries there. Great music. It's a craft vendors and whatnot. And yeah, that's a good one. That was a good one. We actually curated the judging for that. For the beers, last year. So I may be asking you to come and be a judge. That would be so much fun. So we'll do that. I'll put it in my calendar right now. That is you don't have to commit. August 6th. It's that first weekend in August 6th. She had to really, it's a really fun festival. It's a really fun festival. A lot of great local vendors. It's a benefit. The Stafford PB do a lot of toys for tots stuff, et cetera, a bunch of great, great guys, great people running that. And technically, that's kind of my hometown festival. It's only a little bit from a little bit from my place too. Really nice. A lot of good festivals coming up a great time to be had to be had. We had a few last year. There was some hiccups, some hips and starts last year. We're still in the process of redoing some of our shows. We've got like maybe one or two left of the shows we did from the fest last year. Right. I know. Because you weren't able to come on. I miss you guys at athletic city. You were on your own that day. I don't think it was hard for you to get away from it. Well, it was a very strange day because I had to actually leave because it was my daughter's dance recital. It was one of those it was one of those I ended up coming back that evening. But it was camping on the festival grass. No, we didn't camp. We ended up staying, but we stayed with Mike from JCB. Okay. So now I remember. Yeah, there's a business story. But yeah, I ended up I ended up having to talk to you, and it completely, my brain completely forgot that I wasn't going to be there all day. So I hung out until one or 2 o'clock, and then I jumped in a car, drove up back up here, went to a dance recital, jumped back in the car, drove back down. Hung out at a beer fest for another two hours, and then tore everything down. Saturday. I was in Friday night until about two in the morning. That's another reason we had. That's a different story. Did you meet Kelsey Grammer? Did you meet Kelsey Grammer? We did an interview with him. All right. We're probably, I think one of the few pockets that did international interview with him. We got 5 minutes to do it very nice guy. Yeah. Oh yeah, yeah, super nice. Yeah, like 5, 5 minutes with him. And you know, if you look at the YouTube video, we even have some fake mics in front of it because they weren't hooked up yet. Because we didn't have time to go back and get the cables in here. I went through the order, but it was got these very, very nice. I still don't think to tap room opened up there in New York State though. I don't know if it did faith American. Yeah, I'm not sure. Slow down here though. Some good beer. There was some good beers there. Yeah. I think the lager was there like it was nice and crisp. Yeah. But the only concern with an outdoor festival is what we got going on right now is Friday night at AC downpour. And then.

He's Bob Ryan, I'm Jeff Goodman and we are talking injuries, injuries injuries, unfortunately, Bob and and you know, I think for a while there it was okay, you know, like it wasn't great but we saw some guys go down and, you know, it was frustrating but now it's gotten to a point where it is a war of attrition and it's whoever's left standing at the end is going to be, I think the team that was the healthiest in the most earthquakes every month. Homestead Milwaukee, had been else, has been no longer now. They're falling back in the same category where everyone else assuming that there's some seriousness to be honest, injury. Yeah, well, we started off with losing them to favorites because of injury. Let's be honest. Everybody else, you know, that when whoever wins in the end, whoever survives with this is about banning thing survive in advance, right? Right back. Whoever wins, you know that there will be no diplomatic recognition extended from either Brooklyn New York or or or Inglewood California fans.

All the right players playing, I was okay. Again, when you have these young stars and and and what not, right? Like again Yiannis and Trae young. Yeah. And I was like okay I can suck without LeBron and Kyrie I'm okay without LeBron and Kyrie. But then when you add Yiannis and Trae, young not playing or not playing up to 100% in Kauai, Hawaii is not out there and Chris Paul missed the first couple of games of their series, it just feels tainted and and I don't know. Do you think in in ten, twenty thirty years, we're going to look back on it and say that about the the champion I think people are going to look back. Although, you know, then you'll be a rationale that injuries. There's always almost invariably there's somebody took something they, you know, I can, I mean, I I go back to nineteen fifty-eight. The Celtics, went twelve out of Thirteen, if Russell doesn't get hurt. I'm not going to listen to anybody in st.

A. Oh that's pronounced Leo like Chow in Italian with Ellen stead at Tim's me Congra- Coffee San Juan Capistrano California. Tim Tell me how you got let's start with your coffee history I have you mentioned drinking coffee own your life and if so so what made you decide you want to open a store yeah I had the love affair with coffee ever since high school I I it was kind of rebellious and cool thing to do was not allowed obviously when I was the younger to drink coffee at home I remember when I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area in San Jose and road when they opened up first starbucks in our community back in the early to mid nineties I remember got my mom and saying we need to go to that place just sounds like a really cool place and and then we went to I went with a friend to a concert ah the grand opening of our new arena in San Jose back back in nineteen ninety three or so and concerts it was a Kenny G. concert at all concerts but it was sponsored by starbucks coffee and I just remember that commercial thinking wow this must be a really cool phenomenon that's happening in so as you got into coffee what made you decide now was that your chosen career choice or did you do something else before I went to college got degree also got a culinary degree that's my shows in your French toast that we've had this morning that's for sure so you started off with the corner did you agree to that kind of lead you into owning store what happened was my my parents owned a couple of restaurants and flower shop when we were younger uh when I was growing up and it was a hard I from there I knew it was a hard existence it was it was not an easy thing and the last one that my parents did was to invested in microbrewery restaurant in Kauai Hawaii in in the night nineteen ninety s and due to several issues like Hurricane Nikki and their of their business went belly up and they lost a good chunk of their retirement savings so I always wanted tone my own restaurant or cafe but from my parents experiencing how risky it was and how hard I was to lose money I'd why did I would hold off for years and I went to do Technology and I worked in the computer industry for a while and but the reason I got into coffee interestingly because not only do I love coffee but it was just it was just a less expensive risk than opening up a full blown restaurant so no one family had had ventured into coffee before is that right okay so what was the biggest surprise for you owning your own store now what's been the biggest pluses minuses that you found since opening your own store the copy businesses is interesting I mean first thing if you don't like coffee don't if you're not in the coffee then you shouldn't own a coffee shop same thing was I think any other type of business like if you if you're not into alcohol didn't don't own a bar don't unless Alchoholic a lot of immigrants like my parents came to the United States and where did they come from taking from Taiwan so they were looking at owning several times the restaurants and a lot of immigrants come to own certain types of shops like I- brother-in-law's Cambodian and Cambodians are famous owning donut shops but I don't know if that's necessarily a good thing or bad thing because even though immigrants are hard workers they don't necessarily like that certain type of food or certain type of drink I'm hence your description of alcohol in the bar at Cetera but these people may not enjoy the foods at yes so to me owning a coffee shop you really have to like coffee you really have to have a taste for coffee and interesting about that is a small coffee shops mom and POPs like this one here the type of coffee you're gonNA drink is very indicative of what type of copied owner likes since the owner has pretty much latitude to doing good serving whatever you want if he likes light rose coffee you're going to get light roast coffee dark roast coffee in the dark roast coffee and as far as the the customers do you think they gravitate to your store because of what you're doing as far as the way that you're making the roast and and what kind of roles are you making for people and or have you changed that on your customer base I subscribe to a very different philosophy with copy than most of third third wave coffee shops eh I serve one type of high quality organic coffee and that is a good thing for most people that are now there are some people I've had I've had some negative responses like disappointed that I don't have more varietals UPI beans I only serve a few methods of brewing it I'd have poor over US an option but the the bun machine that I have makes really the coffee and I guess we should we should tell your audience that I actually run this coffee shop by myself so running a coffee shop by yourself you have to be productive you have to you have to simplify and the problem with doing four overs as a one man operation is that it would be near impossible in in the morning when people are waiting in line and if the machine could do it just as well for you then you should trust the machines to do it and all we are doing this interview Tim has one eye on me and one eye on his front door via video monitoring so he is not joking about the one in operation he has mastered all parts of this including being the chef here as well yes and if you could tell me why I know a number of our list offers of over the last season have found that we have stopped a number of places that have a roaster on site and I was very curious our first trip through ahead discussed why you do not have a roaster here I'm wondering if you could explain the roasting part of the coffee businesses very different than the brewing part of the coffee business and therefore when you go to small coffee shop small mom and pop coffee shop sometimes you will see a roaster planted right in front of the store and that often gives people indication that their coffee is that they're serving is freshly roasted the truth of it is most people go towards so roasting because the profit margin is is greater when Roche coffee rather than when you buy from a roaster already and that's not to me that's not a good reason to roast your own beans most experts and most people that have been in this industry for very long time share with me what you need if you're GonNa Roche your copies you literally have to hire a person to go travel the world me the producers meet the growers and see being comes from an tasted and then bring it back to America and rose Sabin's locally but you don't want the person that's making your coffee to Barista or the cashier hosting your coffee it just there's just it's just a lot there's not enough time to do it correctly and you've been here how many years now four years and what would you say is the biggest plus that you found now having a run the shop for this period of time did you make the right career choice out attack in into the coffee business I don't foresee myself getting wealthy from being a coffee shop owner you can't really just so coffee you do have to sell other things says baked goods and also food and do you have more customers coming in as a result of just being in the neighborhood or did you get a lot of referrals from people coming here I've already had one this morning that said no they had a store within just a few blocks of their house but they drove here because they liked this particular what kind of coffee yes so people probably find out about us by accident or despite driving past a sign as I have on the road my store is not facing the main street it's kind of hidden in the back so one of the things that I've had to do is I've had to make these a frame signs and get kind of creative about I put them out and I have about forty different adjectives and I'll change them every day so the the name of the stores tim is making great coffee but I could change those agitators from great to like if it's raining it's rainy day coffee if it's there's also Sassy there's a wicked like the way the Bostonians and New England people back you say wicked wicked coffee Tim's me wicked coffee on Sundays for church going folk I made just want to send a copy coffee Tim's mcgabe coffee which means Christ I'd love to get the people from outside of the area and if so then did they refer to you as their coffee store is that what you're getting us in fact I do I have people that come only visit this I've been open for four years now and I have people that have come not only visit the area like once or twice I see year and don't make it a part of their tin airy to come to this coffee shop and that to me is a real blessing because it makes me think well how people make an effort to come out to my coffee shop even though there there's hundreds coffeeshops to choose from they choose make mine part of Dr Larry I would say upwards of ninety nine point seven percent of the people that I have encountered have been incredible people really nice and I otherwise I probably would quit doing this a long time ago but part of it is day day will give you a certainly away a certain first and foremost because you're not a starbucks they'll come in here and go wow thank you for not being another starbucks or another corporate store.
