<h2>Diving into the Abyss with Deschutes Brewery</h2> <p><a href="https://www.deschutesbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Deschutes Brewery</a> was founded in 1988.  For a craft brewery, that's a long time ago.  Kyle Matthias, the Assitant Brewmaster at Deschutes' Pilot Plant tells us that innovation and agility are key for their continued success.</p> <p>We're joined this week by Matthias and Brewmaster Brian Faivre to hear more about what's going on at Deschutes.  While sipping a few of their amazing beers we discuss beer trends, staying ahead of the game as a bigger brewery, their new flavored malt beverage Modified Theory (NOT a hard seltzer!), brewing beer in the land of legal weed, and Deschutes' new Reserve Club. </p> <h2>Craft Beer News</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.wsls.com/news/virginia/roanoke/ballast-point-shutting-down-daleville-taproom-restaurant"> Constellation Brands is Closing Its Ballast Point Taproom in Daleville, Virginia</a></li> </ul> <h2>The Beer List</h2> <ul> <li>Deschutes Abyss 2015</li> <li>Deschutes The Dissident</li> <li>Deschutes The Stoic 2015</li> <li>Creature Comforts Eukaryote</li> <li>Monk's Mead Abstinence in the Abbey</li> </ul> <h2><strong>Next Week on Beer Guys Radio</strong></h2> <p>It's time for our annual Oktoberfest show!  Join us as we sample some Oktoberfest brews as we chat with <a href= "https://tuckerbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Tucker Brewing Co.</a></p> <h2>ICYMI</h2> <p>Earlier this year we talked with <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2019/02/09/new-glarus-brewing-dan-daniel-carey-interview/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">New Glarus Brewing's Daniel Carey</a>.  It's one of our most popular shows ever.  If you missed it the first time, make sure to give it a listen.</p>

14th Star Brewing with co-founder Steve Gagner
<h2>14th Star Brewing is craft beer Brewed With a Mission</h2> <p><a href="https://www.14thstarbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">14th Star Brewing</a> co-founder Steve Gagner tells us how a late night of drinking led to a WalMart run for soapmaking supplies, and how this all ties in with his eventual interest in brewing and opening his own brewery. Despite the humorous roots, Gagner takes his beer very seriously and strives to serve his community, especially veterans.</p> <p>The original business plan was jotted on the back of a notebook while Gagner served on the battlefields of Afghanistan.  Upon returning home, the plan was refined with the help of his best friend and fellow soldier Matt Kehaya.  14th Star opened their doors in 2012 with a 3.5-barrel brewhouse.  As demand for their beer grew, 14th Star moved their current location in 2014 and upgraded to a 30-barrel brewhouse.</p> <p>We talk with Gagner about hazy IPAs and the difference in a Vermont IPA and NE IPA, maple beers (we kind of had to), and we talk about his efforts to serve veterans, common misconceptions the public has about veterans, and the best thing we can do to support veterans once they return home.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_46453" align="aligncenter" width="800"]<img class="size-large wp-image-46453" src= "https://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/14th-Star-Brewing-Core-Beers-800x388.jpg" alt="14th Star Brewing Core Beers" width="800" height="388" /> <em>14th Star Brewing's core line-up.

Stan Hieronymus talks hops, yeast, and South American craft beer
<p><strong>Stan Hieronymus knows a thing or two about hops</strong></p> <p>Stan Hieronymus has forgotten more about the beer industry than most of us will ever know.  He's typically leaned on for his knowledge of hops, but his expertise extends to many other areas in craft beer.  Hieronymus relocated to the Atlanta area about 1 1/2 years ago and we bend his ear every chance we get.  He joined us in early 2018 (<a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2018/04/14/episode-120-stan-hieronymus/">BGR #120</a>) and we thought it was about time to have him on again for an update.</p> <p>Naturally, we talk a lot about hops in this episode.  We get the update on the hop harvest across Europe and the Pacific NW and discuss hop terroir, a topic that hasn't been mentioned often but is generating more buzz after recent tests.  Some yeast talk happens as well, and we talk about our latest obsession - kveik.  We hear about the durability of true kveik strains and how real Norwegian farmhouse brewers make their beer, and it's likely nothing like what you've had at your local brewery.  With Hieronymus's recent trip to South America, we hear about the craft beer scene there and what styles are popular.  Spoiler... haze is an international craze.</p> <p>To get regular update from Stan you can subscribe to his newsletter via his website at <a href= "https://appellationbeer.com/blog/">appellationbeer.com</a>.</p> <p><strong>Craft Beer News</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href= "https://modernfarmer.com/2019/07/new-york-farmers-hope-to-discover-new-hops/"> New York Farmers Are Looking For New Hops</a> (We discuss this more in the show.)</li> </ul> <p><strong>The Beer List</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.ironmongerbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ironmonger</a> Rivendale| Norwegian Farmhouse Ale</li> <li><a href="http://browargrodzisk.com/en/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Browar Grodzisk</a> APA | American Pale Ale</li> <li><a href="https://liveoakbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Live Oak</a> Grtodziskiee | Grodziskie</li> <li><a href="http://www.cascadebrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Cascade</a> Black Cap Raspberry</li> <li><a href="http://temperancebeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Temperance Beer Co.</a> / <a href= "https://www.fieldmuseum.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Field Museum</a> / <a href= "http://www.chicagobrewseum.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Chicago Brewseum</a>  All the World is Here | Hoppy Cream Ale (1893 World's Fair recreation)</li> </ul> <p>Plus, and we feel kind of bad about this one, we "treated" Stan to his first White Claw.  We're sorry.</p> <p><strong>Follow, Listen, Subscribe!</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/beer-guys-media-llc/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a><span style= "font-weight: 400;">  |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Visit our website:</span> <a href="https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Support the show:</span> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p> <p> </p>

Ancient Ales and Historical Brewing with Beer Archaeologist Travis Rupp
<h2>Beer Archaeologist Travis Rupp is bringing history back to life one beer at a time</h2> <p>As far as cool job titles go, <em>Beer Archaeologist</em> is pretty high on the list.  Travis Rupp holds that title, as well as R&D Manager at Colorado's <a href= "https://www.averybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Avery Brewing Co.</a>  In addition to his boozy life, Rupp is also a professor of classics, art history, and anthropology at University of Colorado Boulder and he's currently working on a book - <em>Brewing in the Ancient World</em>.  I'm not sure if he ever sleeps.</p> <p>Rupp joined us this week to talk about the history of brewing around the world.  We discuss the beers of ancient Rome, Greece, and Egypt, Viking brews, monastic ales, and George Washington's penchant for beer and wine.  Attitudes towards beer varied in each culture with some celebrating it as the drink of the goods, while others imbibed in secret as they decried beer as the beverage of Plebians.</p> <p>We also dig into the ingredients and methods used and the difficulty some of these ancient additions impose when trying to bring them back to life.  Ancient yeasts are the hardest to acquire, and some of the spices used in the past are now known to be toxic.  Rupp tells us the other brewers cringe as he brews some of his ancient ales, gumming up the brewhouse with sticky corn or dragging and entire spruce tree into the brewery.</p> <p>Avery has released many of his recipes in their Ales of Antiquity series.  We enjoyed the latest release, George Washington Porter and coming soon is an 18th century IPA.  Rupp has no intentions of slowing down and has plans for beers years into the future.  He'll continue to travel the world scouring archaeology sites for signs of brewing and do his best to bring something to life that will allow us all to get a taste of the past.</p> <h3>Avery Ales of Antiquity Series</h3> <p>A sampling of the other beers from the Ales of Antiquity Series</p> <ul> <li>Nestor’s Cup - Ancient Mycenaean Beer c. 1350 BCE (Release Sep 2016)</li> <li>Khonsu Im-Heb - Ancient Egyptian Beer c. 1800 BCE (Release Dec 2017)</li> <li>Pachamama - Ancient Peruvian Beer c. 1100-1400 CE (Release Dec 2017)</li> <li>Ragnarsdrápa - Ancient Viking [Finnish] Beer c. 900-1000 CE (Release April 2017)</li> <li>Nursia - Ancient Monastic Beer c. 825 CE (Release Jan 2018 – Rerelease Oct 2018)</li> <li>Benedictus - Ancient Monastic Beer c. 825 CE (Release Jan 2018 – Rerelease Aug 2018)</li> <li>Beersheba - Ancient Israeli/Jordanian Beer c. 3rd cent.

Sean Lawson of Lawson's Finest Liquids
<h2>Lawson's Finest Liquids is always ready to share a little Sip of Sunshine</h2> <p>When Sean Lawson founded <a href= "https://www.lawsonsfinest.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Lawson's Finest Liquids</a> in 2008 he wasn't sure if his "hobby" would work out.  His original brewhouse was built to accommodate his fallback plan, a sugar shack to process maple syrup.  He never had to execute the backup plan and today Lawson's beers are distributed to nine states in the northeast with appearances at bottle shares and gatherings across the country.</p> <p>Lawson tells us that although Sip of Sunshine got their name out to the masses, Double Sunshine was the first beer that folks started lining up for.  Each release brought the crowds in earlier, grabbing breakfast and sitting up their chairs.  Outside of New England, most people probably still know the brewery for their hoppy beers.  However, in addition to amazing IPAs, the brewery produces several maple beers, stouts, pilsners, and more.  Lawson even collaborated with a local distiller to make a spirit dubbed Hop Scotch.</p> <p>We cover a lot of ground in our conversation with Lawson including the early days of the brewery as well as growing into their new location, their focus on conservation and philanthropy, the continued popularity of Sip of Sunshine, and more on the other beers they brew.</p> <p><strong>Lawson's Finest Liquids</strong><br /> 155 Carroll Road<br /> Waitsfield, VT  05673<br /> <a href="https://www.lawsonsfinest.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">lawsonsfinest.com</a></p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.brewbound.com/news/anheuser-busch-inbev-acquires-platform-beer-co"> AB-InBev Has Acquired Cleveland, Ohio’s Platform Beer Company</a></li> </ul> <p><strong>NEXT WEEK:</strong> <a href= "https://www.averybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Avery Brewing</a>'s Travis Rupp joins us to talk <strong>Beer Archeology</strong> and reviving ancient ales.</p> <ul> <li>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio: <a href= "https://pod.link/bgr">https://pod.link/bgr</a></li> <li>Visit our website: <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com"><span>https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></li> <li>Follow Beer Guys Radio: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/"><span>Facebook</span></a> <span>|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span>Instagram</span></a> <span>|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span>Twitter</span></a> <span>|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span>YouTube</span></a></li> <li>Support the show: <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span>Patreon</span></a> <span>|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span>Swag Shop</span></a> <span>|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span>Our Sponsors</span></a></li> </ul>

Line Creek Brewing Co. celebrates Year One
<h2>Load up the golf cart and bring your friends to Line Creek Brewing Co.</h2> <p><a href="https://linecreekbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Line Creek Brewing Co.</a> was the first brewery to open in Peachtree City, GA.  Their small community has a bit slower pace than Atlanta, and golf carts are a common mode of transportation.  You're likely to see a few in the parking lot if you visit the brewery.  PTC'ers have welcomed Line Creek with open arms in their first year.  Their spacious taproom offers plenty of seating as well as TVs for watching the game and a large window to watch the magic happening in the brewhouse.</p> <p>We sat down with Paul Costick (Co-founder), Jason Carroll (Head Brewer), and Alex Knoll (Asst. Brewer and Lead Cellarman) at their anniversary party recently to find out how things went in their first year, what they've learned, and what's in store for the future.  They give us the scoop on the three variations of their anniversary stouts, we talk (more) about kveik, Jason's background brewing in Ireland, and adding seaweed to beers.  Plus, Paul gives us the scoop a collaboration Line Creek Brewing made for the Southern Conservation Trust, <a href= "https://www.brewbound.com/news/line-creek-brewing-company-and-the-southern-conservation-trust-release-conservegeorgia-pecan-amber-ale" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">#ConserveGeorgia</a>.  Proceeds from this Pecan Amber Ale will help protect lands across the state.</p> <p><strong>NEXT WEEK:</strong> Tune in for our conversation with Sean Lawson of Lawson's Finest Liquids.</p> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <ul> <li>Line Creek Barrel-aged Maple, Bacon, Coffee, Chocolate Stout</li> <li>Line Creek Barrel-aged Toasted Vanilla Stout</li> <li>Line Creek Barrel-aged Triple Coffee Vanilla Stout</li> <li>Line Creek Catalina Brine Mixer | Seaweed Sour</li> <li>Line Creek Non-Rev Helles Lager</li> <li>Line Creek Tenacious B | Blueberry Saison</li> <li>Line Creek Total Consciousness Ep. 3 | DIPA</li> </ul> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on your favorite app</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href="https://pod/link/bgr">https://pod/link/bgr</a></li> </ul> <p><strong>Follow Beer Guys Radio</strong></p> <ul> <li>Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/BeerGuysRadio">https://www.facebook.com/BeerGuysRadio</a></li> <li>Instagram:https://twitter/com/beerguysradio</li> <li>Twitter: <a href= "https://instagram.com/beerguysradio">https://instagram.com/beerguysradio</a></li> </ul>

<h2>Wooden Robot Brewery combines Belgian traditions and American innovation</h2> <p><a href="https://woodenrobotbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Wooden Robot</a>'s robot's name is Albert Beerstein.  That's what the people voted for and it stuck.  But we hear his friend's call him Woody Barrelson.</p> <p>Co-founder and CEO Josh Patton joins us this week to talk about his urban farmhouse brewery.  Their brewing is inspired by Belgian tradition while also leaning on the innovation and technology of American brewers.  They produce a variety of wild, funky, fruity, and hoppy beers and aren't concerned with being the biggest kid on the block.</p> <p>We talk about what it means to be an urban farmhouse brewery, using local and foraged ingredients, balancing taking care of yourself with taking care of your retail partners, and the pros and cons of self-distribution.</p> <p>We also discuss the results of our Twitter poll on hard seltzers and share some stats on the rising popularity.  We even sample a few, for science.</p> <p><strong>NEXT WEEK:</strong> Tune in for our conversation with Austin's <a href="http://www.nxnwbrew.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">NXNW Brewing Co.</a></p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2019/07/angry-orchard-embroiled-in-accusations-of-racial-p.html"> Boston Beer’s Angry Orchard Has Been Accused of Racial Profiling and Discrimination</a></li> <li><a href= "https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/17/us/ice-cold-beer-stand-trnd/index.html"> Police Were Called on a Kid with an “Ice Cold Beer” Stand in Brigham City, Utah</a></li> </ul> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <ul> <li>Wooden Robot Razz Hands | Raspberry Farmhouse Ale</li> <li>Wooden Robot What He's Having | American IPA</li> <li>Wooden Robot Bot in the Dark | Dark Lager</li> <li><a href="https://mondaynightbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Monday Night Brewing</a> Darker Subject Matter | BBA Imperial Stout</li> <li><a href="http://www.wildleap.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Wild Leap</a> / <a href= "https://www.trimtabbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Trim Tab</a> Coco Flamingo | IPA with coconut, tangerine, and lime</li> </ul> <p><strong>Subscribe, Follow, and Support Beer Guys Radio!</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on your favorite app: <a href= "https://pod.link/bgr">https://pod.link/bgr</a></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Visit our website:</span> <a href="https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Support the show:</span> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></li> </ul>

<h2>Ale Sharpton is living the life we all want to live</h2> <p>As <a href="http://alesharpton.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Ale Sharpton</a> joined us in the studio he'd recently returned from a trip to Montreal to take in the city with the goal of letting others know about their city.  Earlier, he was given the grueling task of evaluating a new Corvette.  Outside of travel and cars, he's well-versed on craft beer, gourmet food, fashion (especially sneakers), and a variety of other topics.</p> <p>We sat down with Ale to talk about his travels, diversity in craft beer, staying fit while still enjoying great food and beer, and his quest for the world's best crab cakes, and meeting the Rev. Al Sharpton.</p> <p>Ale doesn't sit still for long, there's too much to see, do, and drink.  He's already off on his next adventure to Baltimore, where I'm sure he'll take on more contenders for best crab cakes.</p> <p>Follow Ale Sharpton's adventures on his website, <a href= "http://alesharpton.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Cruisin' for a Brewsin'</a>, and on <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/realalesharpton/?hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a> and <a href= "https://twitter.com/AleSharpton">Twitter</a>.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/nightlife/2019/07/17/founders-brewing-distribution-united-states/1758328001/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Founders Brewing now available in all 50 states</a></li> <li><a href= "https://vinepair.com/booze-news/busch-pop-up-bar-national-forest/"> “Secret” Busch Beer Pop-Up Being Held in Undisclosed U.S. National Forest</a></li> </ul> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <ul> <li><a href="https://newglarusbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">New Glarus</a> Spotted Cow</li> <li><a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Creature Comfort</a>s Automatic</li> <li><a href="https://www.sixbridgesbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Six Bridges</a> Sour Continuum with Pink Guava</li> <li><a href="https://www.unibroue.com/en/legal" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Unibroue</a> La Find du Monde</li> <li><a href="https://eviltwin.dk/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Evil Twin</a> / <a href="https://westbrookbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Westbrook</a> Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break</li> <li><a href="http://www.wildleap.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Wild Leap</a> Alpha Abstraction #8</li> <li><a href="https://terrapinbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Terrapin</a> Jazz Cabbage</li> <li><a href="https://tuckerbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Tucker</a> TKR Pilsner</li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/beer-guys-media-llc/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a><span style= "font-weight: 400;">  |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Visit our website:</span> <a href="https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Support the show:</span> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p> <p> </p>

Boulevard Brewing's Brewmaster Steven Pauwels
<h2>Innovation and collaboration at Boulevard Brewing</h2> <p>Back when Georgia had very few craft beer options <a href= "https://www.boulevard.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Boulevard Brewing</a> was always a favorite.  Our cellars are well-stocked with vintages of Saison-Brett, Love Child, and Rye-on-Rye.  Brian still cries a little that Harvest Dance Wheat Wine has been retired, but he'll get over.</p> <p>Steven Pauwels is the man behind many of those amazing beers.  He's been with Boulevard for 20 years and won many awards for his creations.  Pauwels is from Belgium and is one of the very few Belgian breweries in the United States.  His career in beer started when he was young, working at Brouwerij Krüger in his hometown of Eeklo.  After completing a Biochemical Engineering degree he worked at other breweries in Belgium before making his way to the US.</p> <p>Pauwels joins us this week to talk about his craft beer journey and what enticed him to come brew here in the states.  He shares his passion for the innovation and creation at American breweries and how important that is for continued success.  We discuss his brewing methods, Boulevard's First Friday's initiative, collaborations, and some of Boulevard's new brews.</p> <p><strong>Space Camper - It's an IPA, it's a video game</strong></p> <p>Click here to try your luck at Boulevard's <a href= "https://boulevard.com/spacecamper/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Space Camper IPA game</a>.  Think Galaga meets Space Invaders.  Retro goodness.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.brewbound.com/news/2019/many-top-50-craft-breweries-struggling-to-grow-brewers-associated-data-suggests"> More Than Half of the Top 50 Craft Breweries in the US Saw No Growth in 2018</a></li> <li><a href= "https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/beer-gay-lemonade-brewery-southern-bay-australia-mike-warming-a8944501.html"> The CEO of an Australian Beer Company Posted a Homophobic Meme to Facebook</a></li> <li><a href= "https://ij.org/press-release/texas-supreme-court-declines-to-hear-challenge-to-alcohol-distribution-law/"> We’ve Got Some Interesting Legal Developments in Texas</a></li> </ul> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <ul> <li>Boulevard Space Camper IPA</li> <li>Boulevard Tank 7 Saison</li> <li>Boulevard Hold The Pancakes</li> <li>Boulevard Love Child #4</li> <li>Boulevard Saison-Brett (2013)</li> </ul>

<h2>Mother Nature can't tell us when to drink our stouts</h2> <p>With the temps hitting the 90s in Atlanta we thought this was the perfect time to do a show about stouts.  Big, boozy, malty, delicious stouts.  Since <a href= "https://www.orpheusbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Orpheus Brewing</a> brewmaster Jason Pellett shares our love of stouts in the Summer (he released several at Orpheus's anniversary Memorial Day weekend) we invited him to join the fun.</p> <p>We talk about the varieties of stouts available for Summer sippin'.  Dry Irish, Foreign Export Stout, Tropical Stouts... the list is a long one.  Plus, Jason tells us all about the benefits of a long boil (like, really long) when brewing his stouts, we talk about barrel-aging, pastry stouts, and dumping beer.  We also get into an in-depth conversation about plums.</p> <p>Don't let the heat scare you away, crack open a barrel-aged stout the next time you're hanging poolside.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/brewery-crips-bloods-beers">Seattle brewery apologizes for Crips and Bloods themed beers</a></li> </ul> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <ul> <li>Orpheus Stouts All the Way Down Vol 8 (BBA with ghost peppers, vanilla bean, cinnamon, cocoa nibs, and nutmeg)</li> <li>Orpheus The Dark Everlasting (BBA with vanilla beans and black coconut)</li> <li><a href="https://www.ironmongerbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ironmonger</a> Goodbye Toby (Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout)</li> <li><a href="http://www.wreckingbarbrewpub.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Wrecking Bar</a> Mexican Siberius Maximus</li> <li><a href="https://westbrookbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Westbrook</a> Mexican Cake</li> <li>O'Dempsey's Your Black Heart (O'Dempsey's closed around 2015-2016)</li> <li><a href="http://uneannee.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Hubbard's Cave</a> Coffee & Cakes</li> <li><a href="https://www.firestonebeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Firestone Walker</a> XXII</li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"> |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Visit our website:</span> <a href="https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Support the show:</span> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p>

Asheville's Green Man Brewery
<h2>Green Man Brewery was the first taproom in Downtown Asheville</h2> <p>Lovingly dubbed Dirty Jack's, <a href= "http://www.greenmanbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Green Man Brewery</a>'s original taproom opened in downtown Asheville, NC in 1997.  nearly 201 years later the Green Mansion opened, an impressive three-story brewery and tasting room with a "Brewtique" for souvenirs and beer to-go.</p> <p>Green Man brewers Geoffrey Ebner and Kyle McKenzie stopped by the Beer Guys studio on a recent trip to Atlanta, with plenty of Green Man beer in tow.  We sampled through brews like their Wayfarer IPA, Hazy Cosmic Jive (part of their Hazy Homage series), Keller Pilz, and Moe's Goes Camping (a smoky s'mores stout collaboration brewed with Moe's Original BBQ) while Ebner and McKenzie share their love for lagers and dive bars.</p> <p>The guys also share with us some of the brewery's environmentally-friendly initiatives like using high-efficiency equipment where possible, recycling all packaging and pallets, and buying grain in bulk to reduce the number of shipments they receive.  Brewery's produce a lot of waste in spent grain.  Fortunately, many brewers (like Green Man) partner with local farmers to use this grain as feed for livestock.  Some of the animals raised on the grain make their way into burgers at the nearby <a href= "https://whitelabs.com/locations/white-labs-kitchen-tap">White Labs Kitchen & Tap</a>.</p> <h3>Ask the Brewers</h3> <p>Homebrewers are a big reason the American craft beer scene is as awesome as it is today.  Through the creativity and experimentation of homebrew, we've had amazing new styles of beer created.  The Green Man brewers are huge supporters of homebrewing and have a section on their site to <a href= "http://www.greenmanbrewery.com/ask-a-brewer/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">ask a brewer</a> any questions you have.  Ebner and McKenzie warn us that they can get long-winded with some of their answers.</p> <p>Through the explosive growth of the Asheville beer scene, Green Man has been a staple.  Stop in for a pint of their classic ESB or see what experimental beers are on tap.  If you're a soccer fan you'll be in luck, if there's a game on TV it will be on in the taproom.  Hail United!</p> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</strong> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"> |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></p> <p><strong>Visit our website:</strong> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></p> <p><strong>Follow Beer Guys Radio:</strong> <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></p> <p><strong>Support the show:</strong> <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p>

Palmetto Brewing and Catawba Brewing with owner Billy Pyatt
<h2>Palmetto Brewing is South Carolina's oldest brewery</h2> <p>The history of <a href="https://palmettobrewery.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Palmetto Brewing</a> dates back to the end of Prohibition. In its current life, Palmetto is 26-years old, making it South Carolina's oldest operating brewery.  Billy Pyatt, founder of Asheville's <a href="https://catawbabrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Catawba Brewing</a> purchased Palmetto in 2017.  They've got a new look and some new beers, but still hold on to their traditions.</p> <p>Pyatt joined us from his <em>sound-proof recording studi</em>o (his car) while taking a break from building out a new beer cooler.  We talk about the recent update to Palmetto's branding, their new beers, the South Carolina beer scene, and what else we should do for a weekend in Charleston.</p> <p>Palmetto may have a few years on Catawba but the North Carolina brewery will celebrate their 20th anniversary this July.  As part of the celebration, they'll launch three new beers.  We tried to get Pyatt to spill the beans on exactly what those would be, but he said he has to keep that under wraps for now.  While sipping some of their coffee blonde ale (Evening Joe) Brian had to get in some coffee chat and we find out about Catawba's best-selling beer.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.brewbound.com/news/2019/boston-beer-company-and-dogfish-head-agree-to-merge-in-300-million-deal" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Boston Beer Co. merges with Dogfish Head</a> | The big story this week was the merger of Boston Beer Co., maker of Sam Adams, and Dogfish Head.  Since Pyatt had experience merging two breweries we took the opportunity to get his opinion on the pros and cons of this massive merger. </li> </ul> <h3>The Beer List</h3> <p>We enjoyed the following beers before, during and after our show taping.  It's a non-stop party in here.</p> <ul> <li>Palmetto Brewing Idle Speed | Salted Lime Lager</li> <li>Palmetto Brewing Nice & Brite | Gose</li> <li>Catawba Brewing Evening Joe | Coffee Blonde Ale</li> <li><a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Creature Comforts</a> Feel Free | IPA</li> <li><a href="https://oldnationbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Old Nation</a> Boss Tweed | NE DIPA</li> <li><a href="https://www.proofbrewingco.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Proof Brewing</a> Royal Bloodline | BBA Imperial Stout with coffee and vanilla</li> <li><a href="https://terrapinbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Terrapin</a> Beerista | BA Imperial Stout with cold brewed coffee</li> <li>Terrapin / Miller High Life Hoppin Bubbly | Brut IPA</li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"> |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Visit our website:</span> <a href="https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow Beer Guys Radio:</span> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Support the show:</span> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p>

Proof Brewing and Tallahassee Beer Society at SGI Brewfest
<h2>We took a craft beer road trip to Tallahassee and St. George Island, FL</h2> <p>When our Tallahassee radio affiliate (<a href= "https://realtalk93.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">RealTalk 93.3</a>) reached out to see if we'd like to attend the <a href="http://www.sgibrewfest.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">SGI Brewfest</a> with them we jumped at the chance.  We've never done a Tallahassee trip and spending a weekend on the beach at a beer fest is not a bad way to waste a weekend.</p> <p>Our first stop in Tallahassee was <a href= "http://ologybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Ology Brewing</a> (OK, technically it was Whataburger) where we sampled through all of the beers on tap.  Their Sensory Overload IPA was amazing, and the DDH version takes it to another level, one of our favorite beers of the trip.  Don't miss their Juice Lab series of fruited Berliners, on Sundays they tap a new version and you might even find it pouring from the slushie machine.  We then headed over to Proof Brewing's relatively new and gorgeous tap room where we had IPAs, sours, and Brian even got his glitter beer fix. Mike Kauffman and James Davis from Proof join us on the show to talk Tally beer.</p> <p>After a crazy Friday that peaked with quarts of Olde English 800 back at the hotel, we headed to St. George Island early Saturday morning for the SGI Brewfest.  I'm telling you, it would be difficult to beat the weather and the location for this festival. The large, open yard of <a href="https://www.paddysrawbar.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Paddy's Raw Bar</a> hosted the event and sunny skies and mid-70s temps made for a great day.  In Atlanta, it can be tough to get people to travel 20 miles for an event but the trip from Tallahassee to SGI is 1 1/2 hours and there's no issue get the crowds down for the event.  In addition to Proof, other Tallahassee favorites like Ology Brewing, <a href="http://deepbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Deep Brewing</a> (<a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2018/09/29/deep-brewing-tallahassee-beer-podcast/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">BGR #144</a>), <a href= "http://www.grasslandsbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Grasslands Brewing</a>, and many others we are the fest as well as a handful of brewers from the rest of Florida and around the US.</p> <p>RealTalk's <a href= "https://realtalk93.com/real-mornings-with-greg-tish-and-bobby-mac/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Real Mornings</a> hosts Greg Tish and Bobby Mac join us to kick off the show, chatting general beer info and reminiscing about the wine cooler-y beverages of our younger days while sipping Naturdays.  Yeah, we know, don't hate us.  Although Naturdays is very far removed from anything I'd consider beer, it is a refreshing and tasty alcoholic lemonade.</p> <p>We wrap up the show with Danny Aller and Matt Crumbaker from <a href="https://www.facebook.com/TLHBeerSociety/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Tallahassee Beer Society</a>.  In addition to cheerleading Tally beer, they host the Saturday Morning Bottle Share show.  These guys love their Tallahassee breweries and work hard to spread the word.  We share some Georgia goodness with <a href="https://mondaynightbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Monday Night</a>'s Overnight Celebrity while they share some info on the local beer scene.</p> <p>Tallahassee isn't the first place most people think of for a craft beer trip but it's definitely worth putting on your radar.  The scene is solid now and continues to grow.  Make a point to schedule your trip to head on down for the SGI Brewfest, too.</p> <p>_____________________________________________________</p> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio:</strong> <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Apple Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Google Podcasts</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Spotify</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stitcher</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"> |</span> <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">RSS</span></a></p> <p><strong>Visit our website:</strong> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://beerguysradio.com</span></a></p> <p><strong>Follow Beer Guys Radio:</strong> <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Facebook</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/beerguysradio/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Instagram</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Twitter</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/beerguysradio"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">YouTube</span></a></p> <p><strong>Support the show:</strong> <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/beerguys"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Patreon</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/store/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Swag Shop</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">|</span> <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/our-sponsors/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Our Sponsors</span></a></p>

Pat Korn heads to Texas as Brewmaster at Vista Brewing
<p>If you've been a craft beer fan for a while you may have heard the name Pat Korn.  Before joining the team at <a href= "https://vistabrewingtx.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Vista Brewing</a>, Korn was the Barrel Master for <a href= "https://www.greenflashbrew.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Green Flash</a>'s Cellar 3 - the offshoot responsible for beers like Silva Stout, Lustrous Fermento, and Natura Morta.</p> <p>After departing Green Flash in early 2018 he worked a short stint with Atlanta's <a href="https://sweetwaterbrew.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">SweetWater Brewing</a>.  Korn was also part of the initial team slated to launch a brewery concept called My Yard Live in San Diego, along with SweetWater founder Freddy Bensch.  Korn tells us as the project moved along it became clear to him that their visions didn't align.  So begins his life in Texas at Vista Brewing.</p> <p>Located in the Texas Hill Country just outside of Austin, Vista is a brewery, restaurant, and farm.  In addition to their beer this "destination brewery" features hyper-local food, an impressive wine list (with on-site sommelier), and a large beer garden.  Future plans include an "eco-friendly tiny home hotel", event pavilion, and native fruit orchard.</p> <p>We chat with Korn about making the move from San Diego to the Texas countryside and what his plans are for the future of Vista.  As expected, there are many things he doesn't intend to change.  He tells us that, in time, he'll bring his own character to the brewing in places where it matches with the personality of Vista Brewing.  He's excited to work with some local Texas wine barrels and expand the barrel program and shares some info with us on the Vista Barrel Club, offering exclusive beers to members and recently expanded to 100 total memberships.</p> <p>We wrap up with some details on the Destination Brew Fest.  An invitational beer festival featuring lagers and farmhouse style ales benefiting the Texas Brewshed Alliance.</p> <p><strong>Vista Brewing</strong><br /> 13551 FM 150<br /> Driftwood, TX 78619<br /> howdy@vistabrewingtx.com<br /> 512-766-1842</p>

Founders Brewing brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki
<p><a href="https://foundersbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Founders Brewing</a>'s brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki got a job at the brewery because his girlfriend told him he needed to find work.  He didn't even really care for their beer.  Kosmicki says the beer was fine, but at the time Founders focused on unexciting, basic styles.  Unable to make a connection and establish their identity Founders started losing money and eventually faced bankruptcy. Rather than cutting back and skimping on quality to cut costs, co-founders Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers decided that if they were going to go down, they were going down on their terms.</p> <p>They pulled out all the stops and switched up what they brewed.  With the introduction of extreme beers like Dirty Bastard the brewery started to grow.  Beer geeks sought out their brews and whales like KBS and CBS had people chasing trucks to catch deliveries before they sold out.  Founders expanded, got more barrels, and expanded some more.  They'd finally found their groove.</p> <p>We talk with Kosmicki this week about those early days and what they did to get over the hump.  He shares why the Mountie left his mount on CBS labels, we chat about Founders Black Party (a celebration of black beers), the Catch-22 of expanding the availability of KBS, lagers and malt liquor, and some of the beers we'll see from them soon.</p> <h3>Beers we drank on this show</h3> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Creature Comforts</a> Athena Tiki Painkiller</li> <li>Founders All Day IPA</li> <li>Founders Green Zebra</li> <li>Founders Solid Gold</li> <li>Founders KBS</li> <li>Founders CBS<br /> <strong>After Party Beers</strong></li> <li>Creature Comforts / Mikkeller I Can't Find This Feeling Anymore</li> <li><a href="https://www.thebruery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">The Bruery</a> Bakery Macaroon</li> <li><a href="https://scofflawbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Scofflaw</a> POG Basement</li> <li>Scofflaw Double Jeopardy</li> <li>Scofflaw Barrel-aged Scotch Ale</li> </ul>

Sipping Sasquatch with 903 Brewers
<h2>Sasquatch lives at 903 Brewers</h2> <p><a href="http://903brewers.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">903 Brewers</a> founder and head brewer Jeremy Roberts is happy to sit down and chat with visitors about the legendary Sasquatch.  He's never seen the beast in the wild, but he's keeping an eye out.  903's big milk stout is named after the ape, Sasquatch's base is a sneaky 10% and some of the Reserve variants (like the Double Chocolate Cherry Stout we sampled) hit at a heavy 15% ABV.  The box encourages you to "<em>Age it. Drink it. Trade it. Share it.</em>"  We skipped step one and didn't make it past step two.</p> <p>Roberts admits they haven't quite nailed an IPA that's caught on, but they aren't worried about riding that hype train.  They're happy to brew their stouts, a huge variety of cream ales, and many other styles.  Their Down with PastryArchy series takes those cream ales and adds crazy additions like strawberry cake and cinnamon rolls.  Some fruity versions even get served from a slushie machine to help beat the Texas heat.  The brewery is celebrating their 6th anniversary this May and they are in the process of expanding to a new building, an old 3-story schoolhouse in downtown Sherman.  The new space will offer a larger tasting room, large ballroom and meeting area, and expanded brewing capacity.</p> <p>We also talk about the restrictive direct sales laws in Texas.  Brewpubs, distilleries, and wineries are allowed to sell beer to go, but production brewers aren't.  903 switched to a brewpub model because of the limitations the laws put on his growth.  Fortunately, Texas HB762 is up this year looking to change that.</p> <p>If you find yourself in Sherman, TX make sure to stop by 903 Brewers.  You're guaranteed to see Sasquatch.</p> <h3>Beers we drank on this show</h3> <ul> <li>903 Brewers Sasquatch Reserve - Double Chocolate Cherry Stout</li> <li>903 Brewers Oak-aged Maple Coffee Pecan Porter Reserve</li> <li><a href="https://linecreekbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Line Creek</a> Maverick | Helles Lager</li> <li><a href="https://otherhalfbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Other Half</a> / <a href= "https://www.geneseebeer.com/beer/genesee/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Genesee</a> Dream Ale | Dry-hopped cream ale</li> <li><a href="http://www.threetavernsbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Three Taverns</a> Cocoa Cafe | Chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee Milk Stout</li> <li>Three Taverns Saporous | Sour Ale with guava, passionfruit, and lactose</li> </ul> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio</strong> on <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Apple Podcasts</a>, <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D">Google Podcasts</a>, <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Spotify</a>, or your favorite podcasting app.</p>

Athens, GA's Akademia Brewing and Athentic Brewing
<p>The Classic City Brew Fest in an Athens institution.  In its 24th year, a lot has changed since organizer Owen Ogletree founded the event.  Last year, the festival made a big switch amid the flood of "regular" beer festivals and went to a primarily cask ale format.</p> <p>This year, we catch up with Akademia Brewing to see what the last 12 months held for them.  Their beer is available in cans now, and they've recently remodeled and added a larger lounge to their brewpub.  Owners Matt Casey and Morgan Wireman join us to fill us in.</p> <p>We also catch up with a soon-to-be brewery in the Normaltown neighborhood of Athens.  Athentic Brewing gives a nod to their city and their logo (shaped like a guitar pick) pays homage to the rich musical history of Athens, home to bands like REM, THe B-52s, Drive by Truckers, and Widespread Panic.</p>

Live from Tinypalooza 4.5!
<h2>Tinypalooza is one of Georgia's most underrated beer fests</h2> <p>The booming city of Snellville is just far enough from Atlanta that it's easy for metro residents to brush it off.  If you're not from Georgia, you may have heard Snellville mentioned as the home of American Idol contestant Diana DeGarmo.  It's also home to a great beer bar/bottle shop/cigar bar <a href= "http://www.lincolnfillstation.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Lincoln Fill Station</a>.</p> <p>Tinypalooza 4.5 was part birthday celebration for co-owner Tiny McClannan and part anniversary party for "The Lincoln."  Tiny and his business partner Brad Tomlinson scour the country to bring in amazing beers.  There's plenty of great Georgia beer, and some bottle pours you won't find anywhere else close by.  As we found out, they also have basketball-and-trashcan beer pong at the event, which was very popular with people of questionable skill.</p> <p>We've partied with The Lincoln crew since their first festival.  As a matter of fact, their first event was our very first live remote, when Beer Guys Radio was just a few months old.  Each year, we try to talk to a few of the breweries in attendance as well as other cool people who happen to be around.  We also catch up with Tiny about the festival and what's new at the pub.</p> <p>Brian Roth of <a href="https://www.sobrewco.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Southern Brewing Co.</a> always greets you with a smile and a hug.  He's straight up one of the nicest people in the craft beer world, and there are a lot of great people in craft beer.  Brian was kind enough to hang around as we struggled through some technical difficulties and chat with us about his brewery, his upcoming second location in Monroe, Ga; the recent collaboration brew they did with Beer Guys Radio and the crew from <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/atlbeer/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Reddit ATL Beer</a>, and brewing in clay pots called amphoras.</p> <p>Caroline King (along with co-host Ashley Powers) is spreading the good word of craft beer from a women's perspective on the <a href="https://www.bitchbeerpodcast.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Bitch Beer Podcast</a>.  Caroline joins us to take about her recent anniversary, what the goal of her show is, and some of the challenges women still face in the craft beer community.  We've seen some of these biases towards our own Becky Smalls, and although many may be unintentional, they still exist.</p> <p><a href="http://alcovybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Alcovy Brewing</a>'s Joe Paul and Cody Winters sit down with us to chat about their up-and-coming homebrewery.  They've won several awards on the homebrew circuit and collaborated with some local breweries to get their beer on at festivals.  What's in store for Alcovy?  We're not really sure.  Right now it sounds like they're just doing their thing and having fun.</p> <p>See you for 5.5, Lincoln!</p> <h2>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio</h2> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Apple Podcasts</a> | <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D">Google Podcasts</a> <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Spotify</a> | <a href= "https://soundcloud.com/beer-guys-radio" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Soundcloud</a> | <a href= "https://overcast.fm/itunes1062108530/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Overcast</a>  <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Stitcher</a> | <a href= "https://www.podchaser.com/podcasts/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-pod-62225" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Podchaser</a> | <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">RSS</a></p> <p> </p>

Live from The Juice Strikes Back Beer Fest!
<h2>Talking with Barrel Culture and Une Année/ Hubbard's Cave at one of the Southeast's best beer fests</h2> <p>Recently one of the best beer festivals in the Southeast descended on Atlanta, GA (OK, technically Chamblee).  I'm sure I'm a bit biased with it being on my home turf, but when you have nearly 70 highly regarded breweries from around the country bring out their best IPAs, Sours, Stouts, Pilsners, and Meads it's going to be a great party.  In addition to Barrel Culture and Une Année/ Hubbard's Cave, breweries like Carton, Civil Society, Horus, Old Nation, and The Answer were also pouring.  Blue Pants even had a Pilsner on slow pour, and if you're a regular listener you know we're loving that right now.</p> <p>Barrel Culture's head brewer Paul Wasmund joined us to talk about what's coming up at their brewery.  One of Wasmund's goals when joining Barrel Culture in late 2018 was to introduce clean beers alongside their delicious sour beers, which they launched just before the festival.  Wasmund also talks about the addition of spontaneously fermented beers and brett Saisons, and we get his thoughts on superheroes.</p> <p>Jerry Nelson, the founder of Hubbard's Cave and Une Année, has quite a story.  He initially launched Une Année with a focus on classic Belgian Ales, but consumers didn't want classic Belgian Ales.  Coupled with a few other hurdles, his brewery nearly went bankrupt.  Nelson decided to create a new identity in Hubbard's Cave to offer more popular beer styles.  Soon, he'll open a new brewery in Niles, IL.  In a development with a replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  No kidding.</p> <p>None of this would have been possible without the hard work of the guys from distributor Modern Hops.  Partners Philip Barnes and Michael Lowenberg (pictured bottom center in the above photo) talk about their unique approach to beer distribution and how they made the festival happen, as well as their support for the Georgia Transplant Foundation with the event's proceeds.</p> <h2>Places and things mentioned in this episode</h2> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.modernhops.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Modern Hops</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.boneflowermead.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Boneflower Meadery</a></li> <li><a href="https://oldnationbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Old Nation Brewing</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.idyllhoundsbrewingcompany.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Idyll Hounds Brewing</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.facebook.com/BarrelCulture/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Barrel Culture Brewing & Blending</a></li> <li><a href="http://uneannee.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Une Année / Hubbard's Cave</a></li> <li><a href="https://gatransplant.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Georgia Transplant Foundation</a></li> </ul> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Apple Podcasts</a></li> <li><a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> Google Podcasts</a></li> <li><a href="https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Spotify</a></li> <li>Or your favorite podcasting app</li> </ul> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/beerguys" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Support Beer Guys Radio on Patreon</strong></a> | Get commercial-free episodes, swag, and other cool perks.</p>

Fruit and Funk with Troy Casey of Casey Brewing & Blending
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Troy Casey adds the brewing to Casey Brewing & Blending, plans to offer clean beers</span></h2> <p>Troy Casey expected to be a "company man" at Coors, following in the footsteps of his father.  After working in the Coors pilot brewhouse for a few years, he decided to open Casey Brewing & Blending.  Originally, the brewing part was done at other breweries where the wort was then transferred to the Casey facility for fermentation and blending.  Recently, they've added a 7-barrel brewhouse, additional fermentation, and a coolship.  With the new gear, Casey plans to add clean beers to their offerings.</p> <p>Casey's location in Glenwood Springs, CO gives them the unique opportunity to brew with 99% local ingredients.  Malt, hops, and lots of fruit all sourced in Colorado.  Each fruit is available in a multitude of varieties, offering a huge spectrum of character in each batch.  We sampled a Casey Family Preserves featuring Attika and Utah Giant cherries, a sweeter variety that complements the tart character of the base beer.</p> <p>Blending the beers is just as critical as the brewing.  Each barrel offers its own unique profile and selecting the individual parts to create the final blend takes a great palate and a special touch.  Casey's a fan of modern hip-hop, especially producers.  He compares blending to producing hip-hop beats, taking various samples and bringing them together to make something amazing. </p> <p>We're also joined by Joe Lasko with Res-Tek for some sexy floor treatment talk.  Joe is as passionate about flooring as brewers are about beer.  He tells us why a brewery or restaurant should choose a floor treatment to protect their investment.  You may not think flooring talk is hot, but you haven't heard our flooring talk yet.</p> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-46008" src= "https://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Casey-Beer-Bottles.jpg" alt="Casey Beer Bottles" width="800" height="225" /> <em>Funky Blender, Casey Family Preserves, and Fruit Stand are just a few of the offerings in Casey's line up of wild, fruited ales.

Three Taverns Craft Beers and the Imaginarium
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Three Taverns welcomes new brewmaster, presses ahead with Imaginarium</span></h2> <p>Three Taverns Craft Beers is known for their diverse portfolio of hoppy IPAs, tasty sours, and thick and rich long-boil stouts.  The brewery opened under Georgia's "old laws" and initially weren't allowed to do direct sales out of their brewery.  Owner Brian Purcell tells us one of the great things going for breweries in Georgia today is those direct sales allow small batch creativity, which didn't make financial sense for many brewers under the old laws.  While others are opening new, larger brewers to expand, Purcell is going the other direction and opening his Imaginarium at the Atlanta Dairies development.  Visitors can expect a  Willy Wonka meets Ripley's Believe it or Not as brewers flex their creative muscles on an ever-changing list of experimental beers.</p> <p>Heading up the brewing at both locations will be Riley Finnigan, the new Brewmaster at Three Taverns.  He joins the team after a year-long search prompted by the departure of Joran Van Ginderachter, who left to open his own brewery, Halfway Crooks Beer.  Finnigan is still getting settled in Atlanta, but already loves the strong craft beer community.  His brewing background has taken him around the world, most recently at Edge Brewing in Barcelona and previously with Colorado's Avery Brewing.  Finningan caught the brewing bug while he was managing a sustainable ranch in rural Mexico.</p> <p>Atlanta United wasted no time in turning Atlanta into a soccer town.  Before the fancy Mercedes Benz stadium was completed fans packed out Georgia Tech's Bobby Dodd stadium for games.  Purcell is one of those fans, as are many others at Three Taverns.  They attend tailgates, host watch parties, and their Rowdy and Proud IPA is always on hand to celebrate.  Brewed in collaboration with Resurgence, the Atlanta United supporters club, the beer has taken on a life of its own.  Purcell announced the launch of rowdyandproudbeer.com to tell the story of the beer, share pics of the rowdy and the proud as well as a calendar of events, and (soon) to get your Rowdy and Proud merchandise.</p> <p>Make sure to visit Three Taverns original brewery in Decatur, GA and stay tuned for updates on the Imaginarium.</p> <h2>Places and things mentioned in this episode...</h2> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.threetavernsbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Three Taverns Craft Beers</a> | Craft brewery in Decatur, GA</li> <li><a href="http://edgebrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Edge Brewing</a> | American craft brewery in Barcelona, Spain</li> <li><a href="https://www.averybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Avery Brewing</a> | Craft brewery in Boulder, CO</li> <li><a href="https://halfwaycrooks.beer/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Halfway Crooks Beer</a> | Joran Van Ginderachter's upcoming Atlanta brewery</li> <li><a href="https://www.sobrewco.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Southern Brewing Co.</a> | Craft brewery in Athens, GA</li> <li><a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Creature Comforts Brewing Co.</a> | Craft brewery in Athens, GA</li> <li><a href="http://resurgenceatl.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Resurgence</a> | Atlanta United supporters group</li> <li>Thank you to our newest sponsors! <ul> <li><a href="https://www.res-tek.net/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Res-Tek</a> | Manufacturer of protective flooring for breweries and restaurants</li> <li><a href= "https://www.craftcellr.com/info?utm_source=website&utm_medium=beerguysradio&utm_campaign=bgrwebsite2019" target="_blank" rel="noopener">CraftCellr</a> | Mobile solution to facilitate online brewery pre-sales for beer releases, events, and memberships.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <p><strong>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio</strong> on <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Apple Podcasts</a>, <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D">Google Podcasts</a>, <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/0SnEdzIyPTn5jKqfmfCJrl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Spotify</a>, or your favorite podcasting app.</p> <p>Support Beer Guys Radio on Patreon. - <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/beerguys">https://www.patreon.com/beerguys</a></p> <p> </p>

Gluten-free craft beer with Holidaily Brewing
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Real craft beer, real grains, completely gluten-free</span></h2> <p>As part of her cancer treatment, Holidaily Brewing founder and Chief Brewista Karen Hertz's treatment was going on a gluten-free diet.  As a life-long sports fan and outdoor enthusiast, she missed having a beer at the game or at the end of a day on the slopes.  She tried the gluten-free options that were available at the time but none of them hit the mark for what a craft beer should taste like.  With a passion for craft beer and a background in the beer industry Hertz had a "simple" solution, she'd start a craft brewery focusing on gluten-free beers that actually tasted like beer.</p> <p>The process starts with using real grains.  Barley and wheat are out, but Holidaily uses primarily millet and buckwheat in their beers.  Hertz shares how the brewing process is similar, with a few tweaks to accommodate for the small grains.  The end result is beer that actually tastes like beer, and is 100% safe for anyone with Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.</p> <p>The gluten-free beer industry is young but, in addition to Holidaily, there are about 12 breweries specializing in gluten-free craft beer.  Now everyone can cheer on their favorite team's win by raising a glass of their favorite brew.</p> <h2>Episode Guide</h2> <p><strong>Beer Guys Radio Ep. 167</strong><br /> <strong>Gluten-free craft beer with Holidaily Brewing</strong><br /> <strong>Follow Holidaily: <a href="https://holidailybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a> | <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/holidailybrewingcompany/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a> | <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/holidailybrew/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a> | <a href= "https://twitter.com/HolidailyBrew" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <ul> <li>Karen Hertz introduction | 00:52</li> <li>Holidaily Favorite Blonde Ale | 01:18</li> <li>Grain-based vs. non-grain-based gluten-free beer | 01:54</li> <li>Slow pour pilsner | 05:15</li> <li>Beers of the Week | <ul> <li>SweetWater Brewing Peach Love and Happiness | Peach Berliner Weisse</li> <li>Holidaily Favorite Blonde | Gluten-free Blonde Ale</li> <li>Holidaily Fat Randy's IPA | Gluten-free IPA</li> <li>Holidaily Riva Stout | Gluten-free Stout</li> </ul> </li> <li>Craft Beer News | 08:50</li> <li>Gluten-neutralized grains? | 11:50</li> <li>Gluten and distilled spirits | 14:32</li> <li>Why open a gluten-free brewery | 15:50</li> <li>Gluten-free malts | 17:50</li> <li><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX_Xrx4vwAQ" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The story of Fat Randy</a> | 22:53</li> <li>Gluten-free vs. gluten-reduced | 24:45</li> <li>Gluten-free lines in bars, restaurants, and breweries | 27:55</li> <li>Holidaily Riva Stout | 33:45</li> <li>Gluten-free brewing process | 35:10</li> <li>Nutritional comparison to "traditional" grain beers | 37:55</li> <li>Holidaily's new brewhouse | 41:00</li> </ul> <h2>Shout Outs / Links</h2> <ul> <li><a href="https://holidailybrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Holidaily Brewing Company</a> | 100% gluten-free, grain-based craft brewery</li> <li><a href="https://sweetwaterbrew.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">SweetWater Brewing Co.</a> | Craft brewery in Atlanta, GA</li> <li><a href="https://grousemalthouse.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Grouse Malt House</a> | Gluten-free malt house based in Colorado offering millet, buckwheat, oats, maize, and quinoa</li> <li><a href="https://www.boxcaratl.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Boxcar</a> / <a href="http://www.hopcitybeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Hop City</a> | Craft beer bar, wine bar, bottle shop, and restaurant in the Lee & White development in Atlanta's West End</li> </ul>

Craft beer and cheese pairing with Brick Store Pub's Bernard McCoy
<h2>Step aside, wine.  We're pairing craft beer and cheese.</h2> <p>Wine and cheese get plenty of love but craft beer is gaining more respect for pairing with cheese.  I'll admit, this show was all for us.  Selfish, I know.  However, Chef Bernard McCoy shares some amazing info on pairing craft beer and cheese and we think you're going to enjoy it.</p> <p>McCoy is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, a passionate craft beer fan, and a member of the "Kitchen Killaz" team at the renowned Brick Store Pub.  During our selfish session, we get some info on how to set up your pairing, how to best enjoy your beer and cheese pairing, and we sample a few cheeses with a few beers and see how well they play together.  Although there are guidelines when pairing, there are no rules.  McCoy says the main goal is to enjoy yourself.  Ideally, you'll find a combination that brings out flavors of the cheese or beer that you wouldn't have tasted, or a combination that makes muted flavors pop.  However, you do it, just have a good time.</p> <h2>Cheeses and beers we tasted</h2> <ul> <li><strong>Karst Cave-aged with Creature Comforts Bibo Pilsner</strong> <ul> <li>Cheddar/gruyere blend from Karst in Vermont</li> <li>Sharp and buttery</li> <li>Also pairs with Kolsch or Cabernet Sauvignon</li> <li>Accompaniments: Dark chocolate, soppressata, caramelized walnuts, dried apricots</li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Ewephoria Sheep’s Milk Gouda with Trim Tab Mosaic Singularity and Old Nation Boss Tweed</strong> <ul> <li>From a small family farm in the north of Holland, aged 9-12 mos</li> <li>Butterscotch sweetness and nuttiness</li> <li>Also pairs well with bourbon, Malbec, Riesling</li> <li>Accompaniments: Pears, whole grain bread, Italian speck.

<h2>We asked some of Georgia's best homebrewers for a few tips</h2> <p>Jay Brantley and Jon Shari (<a href= "https://www.facebook.com/littlecottagebrewery/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Little Cottage Brewery</a>) took top honors in our 2018 <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2018/12/29/best-georgia-beer-results-2018/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Best of Georgia Beer Awards</a>.  We do these awards annually and the homebrewer category was a new addition last year.  Our readers/listeners voted for their favorites, and Jay and Jon beat out a strong pool of nominees.  When it came time for another homebrewing show we figure these guys were the ones to come join us, so here we are.</p> <p>Little Cottage Brewery has been a friend of the show from the beginning, Jon joined us on <a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2016/01/02/episode-1-creature-comforts/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Show #1</a> way back in 2016.  He's well-known throughout the Georgia beer community for brewing up amazing stouts and sour beers.  Little Cottage made an appearance at the 2018 WeldWerks Invitational beer fest and even got a shout out from Cool Material as one of "<a href= "https://coolmaterial.com/food-drink/best-new-breweries-2018/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">8 Breweries About to Blow Up</a>."  It's easy to mistake Jon's homebrew for a "real" brewery, he puts a lot of work into custom labels for his bottles and the quality of the beer inside rivals the best commercial breweries.  He's even managed to land the #12 spot on Untappd's best US breweries.  Impressive.</p> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-45881" src= "https://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Homebrew-Crew.jpeg" alt="Jay Brantley and Jon Shari" width="667" height="444" /> <em>Beernice gets some homebrew tips from (L) Jay Brantley and (R) Jon Shari/Little Cottage Brewery.</em>[/caption]</p> <p>Jay Brantley takes more of a <em>walk softly and carry a big stick</em> approach.  He's not much for social media, hasn't given an official name to his homebrewery yet, and his beers aren't listed on Untappd.  However, Jay keeps his head down and brews away - 52 batches in 2018.  With a full-time job, wife, and three kids, that's even more impressive.  He's a fan of nuance and balance in his beers and meticulously plans and tracks his brews.</p> <p>In addition to their tips for nailing IPAs and Stouts, we talk with the guys about what got them started in homebrewing, homebrew clubs (shout out to Jay's club, <a href="http://pcmashers.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">PC Mashers</a>), homebrew competitions, and Jon even shares tips on how to build and keep your own house wild culture.</p>

New Glarus Brewing's Daniel Carey
<h2>New Glarus Brewing isn't coming soon to a store near you (unless you live in Wisconsin)</h2> <p>Daniel and Deb Carey sent their beer to a few other states for a while, but today <a href="https://newglarusbrewing.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">New Glarus</a> is Wisconsin's beer.  The Careys want control of their beer and their company, and the easiest way to do that is to keep it as close to home as possible.  The plan seems to be working well for them as New Glarus Brewing is the 17th largest craft brewer in the US, and the 25th largest overall brewery.</p> <p>Carey's brewing history spans over 30 years.  He earned a degree in Food Science with an emphasis in malting and brewing from UC Davis in 1983, and was valedictorian of the 1987 Siebel Institute course in Brewing Technology.  He apprenticed at a small brewery near Munich and worked for Anheuser-Busch, where he tells us his desk was right next to Mitch Steele's (Stone/New Realm).</p> <p>Daniel Carey joins us on the show this week to talk about his brewing history and the growth of his brewery.  He shares insight on why they choose to stay in Wisconsin, passing on buy-out offers, and the importance of being a moral business.  We also discuss the Bud Light Super Bowl commercials and get insight on the big deal with corn syrup.  We sample a few New Glarus beers and get info on the brews and the styles.  Plus, we find out the connection that New Glarus has to good 'ol Atlanta.</p> <h3>Episode Guide</h3> <p>New Glarus Brewing with co-owner and brewmaster Daniel Carey<br /> Beer Guys Radio Ep. 163</p> <ul> <li>Daniel Carey Introduction, Topics |  00:51</li> <li>New Glarus Uff Da Bock | 01:11</li> <li>Decoction Mashing | 02:38</li> <li>Discussing Bud Light's "corn syrup" Super Bowl commercials | 03:10</li> <li>Beers of the Week | 06:39</li> <li>Craft Beer News | 07:40 <ul> <li>AB InBev acquires 100% of RateBeer.com</li> <li>Bell's Brewery pulls out of Virginia</li> </ul> </li> <li>Daniel Carey's brewing background | 11:46</li> <li>Old school Henry Weinhard | 15:39</li> <li>The benefits of professional brewing education | 16:05</li> <li>New Glarus 2019 Flanders Sour | 19:30</li> <li>New Glarus's many awards | 23:05</li> <li>The growth of New Glarus and staying close to home | 24:38</li> <li>New Glarus Spotted Cow | 28:30</li> <li>Passing on selling out / building a moral business | 29:40</li> <li>New Glarus and Atlanta | 34:00</li> <li>New Glarus Serendipity | 36:25</li> <li>Pioneering sour beer in the US | 38:00</li> <li>New Glarus's "caves" | 40:40</li> <li>Capturing big fruit flavor in your beer | 42:25</li> <li>Next Week | <a href="https://www.athleticbrewing.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Athletic Brewing Co.</a></li> </ul>

Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting and Georgia's upcoming breweries
<h2>Halfway Crooks, Bold Monks, and a Schoolhouse coming soon to the Georgia beer scene</h2> <p>Recently, we sat down at the 15th Annual Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting and talked with a few of the folks behind some of Georgia's upcoming breweries.  This is our 3rd year at the festival and it's become a tradition to catch up with some of our upcoming breweries.  We also talk with festival organizer Owen Ogletree about cask ales and the changes he's seen hosting the festival over the years.  As a bonus, we're joined for a quick chat with UK beer writer Rob Macardle, editors of CAMRA's Leicester Drinker.</p> <p><img class="wp-image-45819 size-large" src= "https://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Halfway-Crooks-Web-800x533.jpg" alt="Halfway Crooks Beer" width="800" height="533" /> <em>Halfway Crooks Beer founders Shawn Bainbridge and Joran Van Ginderachter pose with their furry friend at their brewery in Atlanta's Summerhill neighborhood.  They are targeting a Spring 2019 opening.</em>[/caption]</p> <h3>Brewery Guests</h3> <p><a href="https://www.boldmonkbrewingco.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>The Bold Monk</strong></a> | John "JR" Roberts is currently building The Bold Monk in Atlanta's hot Westside neighborhood.  In addition to the new venture, JR also owns Max Lager's brewpub in downtown Atlanta.  The area is also home to the recently opened Steady Hand Beer Co. and the recently announced second location for Scofflaw Brewing Co.

Big Game Beer Showdown
<h2>Drinkin' Beers go head to head for King of the Cooler at your Big Game party</h2> <p>Drinkin' Beers, party beers, session beers, "crushable".  Whatever you call them sometimes you just need a no-fuss, low alcohol beer to help wash down your nachos and wings.  Sure, there are suggestions for the "perfect" beer to pair with pizza but a good clean Pilsner or American Lager is pretty multipurpose.  This week, we drink eight lower ABV beers, pitting them 1-on-1 and then picking our gameday champion.</p> <p>We share some stats on the insane amount of food and drink folks consume during the Super Bowl, the crazy things they bet on, and we even give a few suggestions for those expert pairings if you want to get fancy.  We talk macro beer and pick the one we'd be "OK" with sipping if it was all that was available.  Because if you're going to a watch party it's likely there will be a cooler or fridge full of macros.</p> <h3>THE CONTENDERS</h3> <ul> <li>Round 1 | Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils VS Rogue Yellow Snow</li> <li>Round 2 | Creature Comforts Bibo Pilsner VS Atlanta Brewing Co.

Contrast Artisan Ales' Chase Medlin
<h2>Chase Medlin's journey to open Contrast Artisan Ales</h2> <p>Before opening <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/contrastartisanales/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Contrast Artisan Ales</a> founder Chase Medlin got his start in brewing at Decatur, Georgia's Twain's Brewpub & Billiards.  After learning the ropes from a couple of other brewers he moved into the head brewer role.  Medlin found his love for brewing and soon began to look into opening his own location.  After few false starts, Contrast opened their doors in Chamblee, Georgia in December of 2018.</p> <p>We sample Medlin's newest IPA, Luminiferous, along with their Hypnotize Biggie Coffee Stout while we discuss what's brewing and what's coming up for Contrast.  We also talk about the changes to the definition of craft brewer and whether or not Contrast will delve into "alternative beverages", the growing beer and food scene in Chamblee, and we travel back in time to talk about some thoughts Medlin shared in a 2015 interview.</p> <h3><strong>Episode Guide</strong></h3> <p><strong>Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast Episode 159</strong><br /> <strong>Contrast Artisan Ales' Chase Medlin</strong></p> <ul> <li>Chase Medlin introduction / show topics | 01:04</li> <li>Contrast Artisan Ales Luminiferous IPA | 01:27</li> <li>Week in review | 03:10 <ul> <li><a href="http://www.fudoatl.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Fūdo</a> grand opening in Chamblee</li> <li><a href="https://www.baddaddysburgerbar.com/store/ga/chamblee" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Bad Daddy's Burger Bar</a> Beer list</li> <li>Mounting a $#&% TV</li> <li>Chase brews beer</li> <li>Shout out to <a href= "http://www.tfhlegal.com/attorney-d-taylor-harper.html" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Taylor Harper</a> (The Georgia Craft Beer Lawyer)</li> </ul> </li> <li>Beers of the Week | 06:23 <ul> <li><a href="https://terrapinbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Terrapin</a> Beyond the Galaxy IPA</li> <li><a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Creature Comforts</a> Innoculous IPA</li> <li><a href="https://atlantabrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Atlanta Brewing Co.</a> Post-bel-lum BBA Imperial Stout</li> <li>Contrast Artisan Ales Luminferous IPA</li> <li>Hypnotize Biggie Coffee Stout</li> </ul> </li> <li>Craft Beer News | 07:15 <ul> <li>Charlie Papazian to depart Brewers Association</li> <li>Overweight, coffee-drinking, alcohol-loving people live longer (some conditions apply)</li> </ul> </li> <li>Contrast Artisan Ales Hypnotize Biggie Coffee Stout | 12:02</li> <li>The road to opening Contrast Artisan Ales | 13:35 <ul> <li><a href="http://www.twains.net/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twain's Brewpub & Billiards</a></li> <li>Terminus City Brewing</li> <li>Locomotion Brewing</li> <li><a href="https://slowpourbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Slow Pour Brewing</a></li> </ul> </li> <li>Brewers supporting brewers | 18:36</li> <li>Why Contrast chose Chamblee, GA / Contrast business model | 19:22</li> <li>Welcome WWDC HD2 104.67 FM Washington, DC | 22:36</li> <li>Chamblee or "Chamblis"?

A journey with beer at Camino Brewing
<p><a href="http://caminobrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Camino Brewing</a> was born during a journey the co-founders (Nathan Poulos and Allen Korenstein) took down the Camino de Santiago.  The Camino used to be a pilgrimage for religious types, but today people from all walks of life take the trip.  Some to clear their head or find themselves, others just want to get away from the rat race for a while.</p> <p>Poulos joins us this week to talk about that journey and how it inspired opening his brewery and continues to inspire him today.  He met a lot of strangers that became friends on the trip, and he wants Camino Brewing to offer that same connection.</p> <p>Beers like <em>N 120</em> Bohemian Pilsner and <em>KM 0.0</em> West Coast IPA take their names from the Camino, while other offerings like <em>Auld Lang Syne</em> Brut IPA say goodbye to the past and welcome the future.  Poulos has big plans in 2019 with each season offering beers that celebrate a leg of the journey on the Camino de Santiago.</p> <p>We also talk a bit of college football here as the <a href= "https://www.ncaa.com/news/football/article/2019-01-04/2019-national-championship-game-date-time-tv-channel-college-football-playoff" target="_blank" rel="noopener">National Championship</a> game comes to the Bay Area.  Alabama will take on Clemson for the third time in four years.  Our Georgia Bulldogs broke the combo last year when they played Alabama for the title but fell to the Crimson Tide.</p>

Maine Beer Company's Dan Kleban
<h2>Maine Beer Co. was started with a goal to "Do What's Right"</h2> <p>Dan Kleban and his brother David founded <a href= "https://www.mainebeercompany.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Maine Beer Company</a> with a single recipe and the goal to "Do What's Right."  That mantra carries through in every aspect of running their business from the beer they brew, to employee relations, and how they support and give back to their community.</p> <p>Dan joins us this week to talk about that philosophy and the passion he has to see it through.  We enjoy a few Maine Beer Company beers as the conversation moves on to a discussion about the collapse of DME, a large brewing equipment manufacturer, and how that could be a nail in the coffin for some new brewers.  Of course, we talk about brewing hoppy and balanced beers and teaching craft beer neophytes that hoppy and bitter are not the same thing.  Dan also shares his passion for environmental causes and how their pledge to <a href= "https://www.onepercentfortheplanet.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">1% For The Planet</a> supports those causes, as well as the impact that brewing with local ingredients has on our environment.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_45659" align="aligncenter" width="800"]<img class="size-large wp-image-45659" src= "https://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/King-Titus-800x533.jpg" alt="Maine Beer Co.

Fonta Flora's Todd Boera
<p>If you've ever taken a trip to Asheville, NC you've likely heard, "If you can find the time, take a trip to Fonta Flora."</p> <p>Todd Boera opened his original brewery about an hour east of Asheville in Morganton.  Slightly closer is Fonta Flora's new Whippoorwill Farm location, a 9-acre farm and 15-barrel brewhouse.  Being away from the action of Asheville hasn't hurt his brewery.  His unique brews with ingredients like beets, carrots, and tulsi bring in plenty of fans, and many do make the side trip from Asheville.</p> <p>Boera uses only local ingredients in his brews and his farm will have a sizable orchard as well as garden areas to grow other ingredients.  For those he can't grow himself he'll source from other local farmers.  Fonta Flora also has their own house culture used to ferment their "Appalachian Wild Ales".</p> <p>With the growth the new location has allowed, you'll see some more "normal" beers like Kolsch, Maibock, and even a Light Lager.  The funk will keep flowing as well.  Boera admits some of his creations are for a very specific audience, but they're what put Fonta Flora on the map and continue to be very important beers for them to brew.</p> <h3>Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast 152<br /> <strong>With: </strong>Todd Boera, Fonta Flora Brewery</h3> <p><strong>Episode Guide</strong></p> <ul> <li>Apology 'cause we screwed up | 0:00</li> <li>Guest Introduction | 1:06</li> <li>Fonta Flora Rind | 1:26</li> <li>Week in Review | 4:15</li> <li><a href= "https://beerguysradio.com/2018/11/20/catlanta-art-auction-giving-kitchen/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Catlanta Charity Art Auction</a> | 6:15</li> <li>Beers of the Week | 7:20</li> <li>Craft Beer News | 8:13</li> <li>Fonta Flora Whippoorwill Farm | 11:40</li> <li>More beer, more cans | 14:47</li> <li>Planting plans for the farmland | 15:43</li> <li>Brewing with polarizing flavors | 19:10</li> <li>Fonta Flora Lunar Aqua | 22:38</li> <li>Terry Perry of Perry's Berry's[sic] | 23:59</li> <li>The doomed community of Fonta Flora | 25:10</li> <li>What is Farmhouse Brewing? | 27:19</li> <li>Appalachian Wild Ale | 33:40</li> <li>North Carolina hops | 34:50</li> <li>Aging hops | 35:55</li> <li>Hop character in wild beers | 37:05</li> <li>Secondary beer market | 39:35</li> <li>Outro | 43:10</li> </ul> <h3>Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio</h3> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Apple Podcasts</a> | <a href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> Google Podcasts</a> | <a href= "https://soundcloud.com/beer-guys-radio">Soundcloud</a> | <a href= "https://overcast.fm/itunes1062108530/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Overcast</a> | <a href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Stitcher</a> | <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">RSS</a></p>

Brett and Barrels with Crooked Stave
<p>When <a href="http://www.crookedstave.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project</a> founder and brewmaster Chad Yakobson published his master's thesis online as <a href="http://brettanomycesproject.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Brettanomyces Project</a> very little was known about brewing with this unusual yeast.  Common knowledge at the time said you couldn't use Brett as a primary fermenter in beer.  Yakobson wasn't buying that and set on a path to find out all he could about this fascinating funk factory.  Ten years later, brewers know a lot more, in large part thanks to his research.  There is a huge variety of beers using Brett both as the primary fermenter and in blends.</p> <p>We're joined this week by Yakobson and brewhouse and cellar manager Troy Montrone to learn more about brewing with Brett.  Montrone tells us what a cellarman's main job duties are (lots of cleaning) and the importance of barrels and other wood vessels in their brewing.  We discuss the differences in Belgian and American sour beers, and Yakobson shares a few flavor descriptors he thinks we need to drop from our vocabulary.</p> <h3>Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast 150</h3> <p><strong>Guests:</strong> Chad Yakobson, Troy Montrone<br /> <strong>Topic:</strong> Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project | Denver, CO</p> <p><strong>Episode Guide</strong></p> <ul> <li>Intro | 00:30</li> <li>Props to Orval | 1:18</li> <li>Week in Review | 3:00</li> <li>Crooked Stave Fort Collins | 4:55</li> <li>Beers of the Week | 5:45</li> <li>Craft Beer News | 6:21</li> <li>Live culture beer in a can (Sour Rosé) | 11:35</li> <li>Aging on second use fruit | 14:30</li> <li>The Brettanomyces Project | 15:50</li> <li>Fast fermentation with Brett | 18:38</li> <li>Wild Wild Brett Series | 23:15</li> <li>Crooked Stave IPA / No dirty beers | 24:50</li> <li>Three breweries in one | 25:25</li> <li>Stop saying horse blanket and barnyard! | 27:00</li> <li>Duties of the Cellarman | 28:58</li> <li>Controlling oxygen in barrels | 30:05</li> <li>High altitude brewing | 30:56</li> <li>Foeders, barrels, and puncheons | 33:44</li> <li>Why ferment in foeders | 34:50</li> <li>Crooked Stave cooperage | 35:24</li> <li>Belgian sours vs. American sours | 38:10</li> <li>What do we know now about Brettanomyces | 40:04</li> <li>What we don't know about Brettanomyces | 40:50</li> <li>Crooked Stave Coffee Baltic Porter | 41:20</li> <li>Outro | 43:17</li> </ul> <p>Subscribe: <a title= "Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Apple Podcasts" href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Apple Podcasts</a> | <a title= "Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Google Podcasts" href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Google Podcasts</a> | <a title= "Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Overcast" href= "https://overcast.fm/itunes1062108530/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Overcast</a> | <a title= "Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Stitcher" href= "https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/community-perspectives/beer-guys-radio" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Stitcher</a> | <a title= "Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Soundcloud" href= "https://soundcloud.com/beer-guys-radio" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Soundcloud</a> | <a href= "http://beerguysradio.libsyn.com/rss" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">RSS</a></p>

Wild and Sour Beer with Orpheus Brewing and SweetWater Woodlands
<h2><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Orpheus Brewing and The Woodlands talk sour and wild beers</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Wild and sour beers continue to grow in popularity.  From "simple" sour beers like Berliner Weisse and Gose to complex, spontaneously fermented ales with funky, earthy, cheesy character.  There's a huge variety out there.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">When you think of <a href= "https://sweetwaterbrew.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">SweetWater Brewery</a>, you may not think of sour beers - but you should.  Nick Burgoyne, Lead Brewer and Blender at SweetWater's <a href= "https://sweetwaterbrew.com/brewery-bookings/woodlands/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Woodlands</a> focuses on brewing wild, sour, funky and barrel-aged beers.  He recently won a Silver Medal for Cambium (an American Wild Ale) at the <a href= "http://usopenbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">US Open Beer Championship</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://www.orpheusbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Orpheus Brewing</a> opened in Atlanta in 2014.  Brewmaster and President Jason Pellett had a goal to introduce an approachable, sour beer that anyone could afford and his Atlanta (Tart Plum Saison) did just that.  In the past 4 years, Orpheus has brewed many more sour beers, and recently won Bronze for Lambic-style Ales at the Great American Beer Fest.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Burgoyne and Pellett join us this week to talk about the adventure of expanding the acceptance of sour beers.  We talk simple kettle sours like Berliner Weisse and Gose, and more complex sours like Lambic and Gueze.   We also discuss the challenges facing American brewers as they mimic these styles and try to name them without offending traditional Belgian brewers, and how that brought about the move towards the Méthode Traditionnelle under the guidance of <a href="https://www.horal.be/en/welcome" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">HORAL</a> (High Council for Artisinal Lambic Beers).  As we sip through several beers, the conversation moves to the process of traditional spontaneous brewing and blending sour beers.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">The show was taped at SweetWater Brewery during ZCON Atlanta's brewery night.  We talk with <a href="http://zcca.org/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Z Car Club Association</a> President Chris Karl about Z Cars, the club and <a href="http://www.zcon.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">ZCON</a> -

Diving in with DEEP Brewing
<p>Ryan Lapete had a career as a deep-sea diver before starting his craft brewery.  He studied underwater crime scene investigation, lived underwater for a month, and participated in a mission with Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau.  His job was dangerous, and after telling his wife he'd leave it behind if he could start a brewery, he founded DEEP Brewing.</p> <p>Lapete shares how his diving experience helps him in brewing craft beer (quite a bit, actually), how being named 2017's Best New Florida Brewery impacted his business, and he spills the beans on a whole season of coffee beer releases.  We also talk about the awesome artwork at his brewery and on his labels, and the difference in alcohol distribution laws in Florida and here in Georgia.</p> <p>Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast 144</p> <p><a title="Subscribe on Apple Podcasts" href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beer-guys-radio-craft-beer-podcast/id1062108530?mt=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Subscribe on Apple Podcasts</a> (Make sure to leave us a review!)<br /> <a title="Subscribe to Beer Guys Radio on Google Podcasts" href= "https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL2JlZXJndXlzcmFkaW8ubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M%3D"> Subscribe on Google Podcasts</a> </p> <p>Follow us: <a title="Follow Beer Guys Radio on Facebook" href= "https://www.facebook.com/BeerGuysRadio">Facebook</a> | <a title="Follow Beer Guys Radio on Instagram" href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a> | <a title= "Follow Beer Guys Radio on Twitter" href= "https://twitter.com/BeerGuysRadio">Twitter</a></p> <p><a title="Support Beer Guys Radio on Patreon" href= "https://www.patreon.com/beerguys" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Support us on Patreon</a> | Supporters can get early access to all shows, commercial-free episodes, Beer Guys swag, and more.</p>

Burnt Hickory Brewery talks about everything
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Burnt Hickory Brewery's Scott Hedeen is part idea man, part madman</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I first met Scott Hedeen when Burnt Hickory Brewery was just a few months old.  Over the years he has become one of my very favorite people in the whole world.  He's also very high on the list of people that drive me crazy.  It's a weird relationship, but it works.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Hedeen is an idea man.  He's constantly thinking (and talking) about what's next.  For him, for others, for everything.  The wheels are constantly spinning.  This makes for some great conversations, amazingly creative ideas, and a 5-minute phone call about hops turning into a 50-minute phone call about IPA, playing the theremin, 80s punk, and standup comedy.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Hedeen founded his brewery in 2011 and produced his first commercial batch in April 2012.  Back then, his Wonka World of craft beer only opened to the public one Saturday each month.  Initially, 20-30 dedicated fans showed up for the tastings but it wasn't long before they numbered in the hundreds.  BHB's fans weren't just normal beer lovers, they felt connected to the brewery and the beer, they were passionate about it.  Those who didn't "get" what Burnt Hickory</span> was about went <span style="font-size: 12pt;">as far as calling their fans a cult.  That's not far from the truth.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">This week, Hedeen and Burnt Hickory taproom manager Heddy Proctor join us to talk about their adventure.  We talk a little bit about their brewery and growth, a lot about music, why it's important for breweries to support homebrewers, and several other topics that I was not able to keep up with.  Scott has something to say about everything, and we tried to catch as much of it as we could.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">This is Burnt Hickory Brewery's third appearance on Beer Guys Radio.  They also joined us on <a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2016/03/26/burnt-hickory-episode-13/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Ep. 13 in March 2016</a> and <a href="http://beerguysradio.com/2017/01/21/burnt-hickory-brewery-and-your-pie-perimeter-episode-56/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Ep. 56 in Jan. 2017</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In this week's</span> news <span style="font-size: 12pt;">we talk about comedian Jim Gaffigan's jab at craft beer, I oldest brewery in the world is found, and Atlanta taking

<h2>Riverbend Malt House makes craft malt for craft brewers</h2> <p>Hops get all the love when it comes to craft beer but malt is getting more attention thanks to a small network of craft maltsters.  For brewers in the South, <a href= "https://riverbendmalt.com/index.html" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Riverbend Malt House</a> in Asheville, North Carolina offers up several barley, wheat, and rye artisan malts from locally sourced grains.  By working with local farmers, Riverbend reduces the average <a href= "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_miles" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">food miles</a> travel for their malts from 3,000 to about 300, reducing the carbon emissions by 4.5 tons for each truckload of grain. (<a href= "https://riverbendmalt.com/about-us/index.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Source</a>)  Their small batch grains also offer unique flavor profiles in specialty malts for craft brewers.  Much like a craft brewery, independence is at the heart of a craft malt house. The <a href= "https://craftmalting.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">North American Craft Maltsters Guild</a> also requires maltsters to source at least 50% of their raw material from the local area, and produces less than 20 million pounds of grain per year.</p> <p>Riverbend's Brent Manning and Matt Thompson join us this week to answer all our malty questions.  We know malt, but we don't <em>know</em> malt, you know?  We discuss what malt is, what makes a craft malt house, local sourcing grains, and what that means for the environment.  Gavin McKenna from <a href= "https://atlantabrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Atlanta Brewing Company</a> also joined us to talk about craft malt from a brewer's perspective and we sample his Homestand, a Pilsner brewed with Riverbend malt.  After our malt talk, we sat down with McKenna and Cameron Davis to talk more about the new Atlanta Brewing Company.  You can listen to that episode <a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2018/08/31/red-brick-rebrand-atlanta-brewing-company/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</a>.</p> <p><strong>Riverbend Malt House</strong> | 12-C Gerber Road | Asheville, NC  | 28803<br /> Website: <a href="https://riverbendmalt.com/index.html" target= "_blank" rel= "noopener">https://riverbendmalt.com/index.html</a><br /> Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/riverbendmalt/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">https://www.facebook.com/riverbendmalt/</a></p>

Red Brick returns to their roots as Atlanta Brewing Company - BGR Extra
<p><strong>New people, new beers, and an old name for Atlanta Brewing Company</strong> </p> <p>Opened in 1993, Atlanta Brewing Company is the oldest production brewery in Georgia.  They started with that name but changed to Red Brick Brewing Co. in 2010, named after their most popular beer.  It’s surprising that our oldest brewery is only 25, but with that little Prohibition thing in America and Georgia’s historically awful brewery laws, that’s quite a feat.  Others have come and gone, some moved on to open other breweries, but Atlanta Brewing Co. has stood strong, even when they shouldn’t have.</p> <p>Director of Brewing Operations Gavin McKenna joined Atlanta Brewing Co. in June 2017 after four years at the popular Wrecking Bar Brewpub.  Although there’s renewed popularity of the beer since McKenna came on board, he’s quick to admit there were many others that helped build the brewery well before he stepped foot inside.  A visit to the taproom offers up 20 varied and unique beers from popular hazy IPAs to classic English ales and even a “Lagerwine.”  When McKenna joined the team he offered suggestions to improve beer quality and was met with some resistance.  Many people on the team had been there for years, and he was the new guy.  Over time his suggestions worked, the beer improved, and the craft beer community began to take notice.</p> <p>To celebrate their 25th-anniversary Marketing Director Cameron Davis shares the details of their month-long celebration all around Atlanta, culminating with the official anniversary party at the brewery on September 29th.  The team collaborated with several breweries for the festivities and will release these collaborations in the taproom and at collaborating breweries throughout the month. Imperial Stout Hype Whale will also see three new variant releases at their Hangover Party on the 30th.</p> <p>McKenna and Davis sat down with us this week to talk about the rebrand and the anniversary events.  We sampled their newly-packaged Homestand Pilsner while planning out our month for maximum enjoyment.  The impetus for the change was a desire to move forward while reconnecting with their Atlanta roots.  There are big changes to the beer but with the same branding many people have their opinions set and may pass over new offerings.  With the change to Atlanta Brewing Company, the team hopes the retro-modern packaging will help beer drinkers take notice once again.</p> <p>Collaborating Breweries: Cherry Street | DISSOLVR | Etowah Meadery | Good Word Brewing | Hopstix | Max Lager’s | Old Rail Brewing Co. | Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen | Southern Grist | Twain’s | Wrecking Bar Brewpub</p>

Tim and Brian talk IPA after guest ghosting
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Tim and Brian pontificate on the many styles of IPA</span></h2> <p>We had a guest lined up for this week, we were all set up and ready to go, but we weren't able to connect with them.  We're all about making lemonade (or maybe a nice lemon Gose) out of lemons so we fired up the mics and freestyled a short show.  We're sampling some IPAs so we discuss the many styles of IPA and if all IPAs are really IPAs. We also introduce a fairly new team member, Sam Kempe.  Sam's been behind the scenes for a while, he's a man of few words, but as our Audio Engineer, he makes sure all our ramblings get recorded each week.  Brian even sings about beer for a few seconds.</p> <p>There were a few new beers in the rotation this week, like <a href="http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Creature Comforts' Goodie Pils</a>, and <a href= "https://mondaynightbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Monday Nigh</a>t's Locals Only and Mischief Managed Peach.  Trusty Tritonia was in the mix along with a beer that sounds like a high school athlete, Tre Fontaine.  <a href= "https://foundersbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Founders</a>' Barrel Runner made an appearance and made Brian cry because he still has 3 left to drink.  I gotta say, I didn't hate it.  The flavor reminded me of those little rum barrel hard candies.  I'd be hard pressed to say this is a good beer, but once my brain equated it with those little candies I enjoyed the flavor.</p> <p>In the news, we discuss a beer that was gone before we knew it existed, the growth of <a href="https://www.canarchy.beer/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">CANarchy</a>, an out of this world collaboration at Crystal Lake Brewing, Buffalo Wild Wings' brewery partnerships for football season, barley shortages in Europe, and bottle</p>

Arcadia Ales makes English inspired, American brewed craft beer
<h2>Arcadia Ales are British Inspired, American Brewed</h2> <p>Michigan has a thriving craft beer scene and <strong><a href="http://arcadiaales.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Arcadia Ales</a></strong> has been a part of it for over 20 years.  Originally based in Battle Creek, an expansion brought them to Kalamazoo where their brewery sits on 400' of riverfront allowing visitors to launch their kayaks and canoes, or just relax and have a beer.</p> <p>For most of their history, Arcadia brewed exclusively via a process unique to most American breweries.  All of their beers were fermented in open vessels with a single yeast strain.  In 2016 they added closed fermenters and other yeasts, but a large portion of their portfolio is still brewed with their open fermentation method.  They've also started a sour program and released beers like Battle Kriek, and further experimentation recently brought them to making mead.</p> <p>Arcadia's Director of Sales Steffan Phillippo joined us this week to talk about how the Britsh inspiration is implemented, the challenges of open fermentation, cherry festivals, glitter beers, and pasties.  We also discuss their recent collaboration with heavy metal legends Motörhead for a US beer release, <a href= "http://arcadiaales.com/motorhead-road-crew-beer-us/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Röad Crew</em> <em>IPA</em></a>, which pairs perfectly with headbanging.</p> <p>We also talk with local Atlanta artist <strong><a href= "https://www.instagram.com/cat_lanta/?hl=en" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Catlanta</a></strong> about his work and tease a collaboration project with Beer Guys Radio to benefit an awesome local charity.  Stay tuned for more info on what we're up to.  Catlanta also shared a special beer he scored in Iceland.  Hvalur 2 is brewed with sheep dung smoked whale's testicles.  Hvalur 1 had the whale testicles but left out the important dung smoking step. <em>#whalezbro</em></p> <h3>News and Brews</h3> <p>In the news this week we share some mid-year craft beer stats, research progress in pursuit of a Florida hop farming industry, and some drama between Toppling Goliath and a former brewer over non-compete issues.</p> <p>In addition to the whale balls beer, we enjoyed Arcadia's Röad Crew, Barrel-aged Shipwreck Porter, and Mango Surprise IPA.  We also cracked a few Florida brews courtesy of a beer mail from our friend Darryl, a Creature Comforts Crescendo, and Hopstix Rice and Shine.</p> <h3>Next week...</h3> <p>Tune in for our conversation with <a href= "https://www.fremontbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Fremont Brewing</a>'s Matt Li</p>

Common Bond Brewers is Montgomery's first production brewery
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Common Bond Brewers is helping revitalize Downtown Montgomery, Alabama</span></h2> <p>Many homebrewers have a dream to open their own brewery.  For <a href="https://www.commonbondbrewers.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Common Bond Brewers</a> co-founder Andrew McNally the dream grabbed him in 2014 after participating in a homebrew competition with <a href="http://goodpeoplebrewing.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Good People Brewing</a> in Birmingham, AL.  As he drove home her pondered life, liberty, and starting his own brewery.   He decided then that he was going to make it happen.  Andrew partnered with his friend Tim Doles and the two set out to build a brewery.  With the help of friends investments and putting their own financial tails on the line they opened in April 2018, the first production brewery in town in Montgomery.</p> <p>McNally and Doles admit that Montgomery isn't a craft beer town, yet.  However, there was overwhelming excitement from the community leading up to the brewery opening and fantastic support since they've opened.  Their core beers (a Blonde, Pale Ale. IPA, and a Rye Amber) offer familiar flavors and a little something different.  Through their Hop Workshop series, they'll explore a variety of styles with a focus on the hop profile.</p> <p>Common Bond is also helping to revitalize the downtown area, a location that just a few years ago, "was not somewhere you wanted to be," according to McNally.  Their building has been around for decades and is shared with <a href= "http://www.bibbstpizzaco.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Bibb Street Pizza</a>.  Elements from the original building were used in the decor of their taproom.</p> <p>In the news this week Brian shares info on changes to the brewery-to-brewery transfer laws, the first beer brewed from marijuana plants, and the upcoming IPA Day and Mead Day.</p> <p>Our beers this week included Common Bond's Blonde, Ramber (Rye Amber), and Hop Workshop 001 brewed with Denali hops.  We also cracked open a Pontoon Kill the Pain, Creature Comforts Arcadiana, Hutton & Smith Wheatwine, and Ironmonger's Billett, a blood orange Pilsner.</p>

Elkmont Exchange brings craft beer and charcuterie to Knoxville
<h2>Elkmont Exchange brings craft beer and charcuterie to Knoxville, TN</h2> <h5><em>Above Photo: Elkmont</em> Exchang<em>e</em></h5> <p>You may be surprised to find out that a brewpub in Tennessee was founded by a team whose first brewing venture was in Saigon (or is that Ho Chi Minh City?) Vietnam.  Alex Violette started his boozy career at Upslope Brewing in Boulder, CO where he met Bethany Lovato, a craft beer industry veteran.  After falling head over heels for each other they had the opportunity to move to Vietnam and open an American craft brewery, Pasteur Street.  Elkmont Exchange's third founder, Ryan Davenport, had grown up in Knoxville with Violette and after honing his culinary skills in Southern restaurants joined the team at Pasteur Street.  The brewery thrived and continues to thrive, but the team was ready for their next challenge.  They returned to Knoxville and <a href= "https://elkmontexchange.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Elkmont Exchange</a> was born.</p> <p>The trio selected Chris Meadows as Head Brewer at their new brewpub.  Meadows got his start at Atlanta's <a href= "http://sweetwaterbrew.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">SweetWater Brewing</a> where he worked for 8 1/2 years eventually becoming Lead Brewer and helping to launch SweetWater's Woodlands.  Like Elkmont's founders, Meadows was ready for a new challenge and packed his bags for Tennessee.</p> <p>Meadows took some time off from brewing a multitude of beers to chat with us this week.  We talk about Elkmont's unique brewhouse, some of the crazy beers they've brewed, heavy metal collaborations, their sour beer program, and of course, we had to get the scoop on that charcuterie program.</p> <p><a href="http://hopsoulbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Hop Soul Brewery</a> isn't open yet, but we've been in touch with founder Justin Crandall since the idea was fresh.  Crandall and his wife Elizabeth were in the Atlanta area this week and joined us in the studio to share some beers with us and chat about their plans to be Brunswick, GA's first brewery.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <p>In the news this week Brian fills us in on the craft beer industry growth through the first half of 2018, the continued drama surrounding Beavertown Brewing and their festival, 1,600-year-old Swedish beer (that's pre-Viking era), and the brewing habits of Hittites in Turkey 4,000 years ago.</p> <h3>Beers of the Week</h3> <p>As we're known to do, we sampled several beers this week including Dead Beach Brewing's I Could Teach You But I'd Have to Charge (a Milkshake IPA, duh.), The Southern Brewing Company's Southern Woodpile Raspberry (Raspberry Sour Ale), Southern Prohibition Paradise Lost (DIPA), Bell's Whiskey Barrel-aged Cherry Stout (it is what it is), Southbound Mountain Jam (a delicious Southern Lager), and Three Taverns Crave (IPA).</p>

All about the IPA haze craze with Old Nation Brewing Co.
<p>When Travis Fritts and Nate Rykse started Old Nation Brewing Co. they brought 14+ years of brewing education and experience with them.  They'd dedicated their lives to learning the technical aspects of brewing as well as the differences in brewing methods and ingredients across different cultures.  The result is a brewery that blends these different methods and ingredients to produce unique beers.</p> <p>Initially, the beer they offered was "very traditional and technically accurate."  Director of Growth & Strategy Mark Logusz recounts, "The beer was great, but it was not what anybody wanted to drink."  With that realization, Fritts engaged the members of a local beer group to talk about new styles and after some discussion invited a few out to help with a pilot batch.  The result was the first batch of M-43.</p> <p>Logusz sat down with us recently during M-43's Atlanta market launch.  We chat about "testing the waters" in Atlanta at the Day of the Juice festival, trying to keep up with the demand for hazy IPAs, the difference in pasties and pasties, Old Nation's non-hazy offerings, and the International Festival of Lagers.</p> <p>On our quest to visit every brewery in Georgia in 2018 we visited Abide Brewing in Newnan and caught Line Creek Brewing Company's opening day.  We also joined Wrecking Bar Brewpub to celebrate their 7th anniversary, and took a trip to SweetWater to sample their new 420 Strain G13 IPA, brewed with cannabis terpenes and hemp flavor.</p> <p>In the news this week Chinese-made brewing equipment gets exempted from tariffs, American aluminum price hikes raise some questions, a Swedish brewery prints tweets on beer foam, World Cup fans cause a beer shortage in Moscow, and London's Beavertown Brewery sells a minority stake to Heineken.</p> <p>Next week we're talking Beer and BBQ with The Beer Sommelier Matt Simpson and Smyrna Beer Market owner Brandon King.  Just in time for your 4th of July planning.</p> <h3>Beers of the Week</h3> <ul> <li>Old Nation Boss Tweed | NE DIPA</li> <li>Old Nation Full Earth | NE DIPA</li> <li>Old Nation Greenstone | DDH American Pale Ale</li> <li>Old Nation M-43 |NE IPA</li> </ul>

<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">New Realm Brewing Co. is booming on the Beltline</span></h2> <p>In early 2018, <a href="https://newrealmbrewing.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">New Realm Brewing Co.</a> opened on the Beltline in the heart of Atlanta.  Co-founders Carey Falcone, Bob Powers, and Mitch Steele aren't new to the beer business.  Falcone and Powers have worked various roles in the industry for over 25 years.  Steele managed fermentation for three breweries as well as new beer development at Anheuser-Busch, and prior to starting New Realm, he was the Brewmaster for Stone Brewing in California.  Steele helped define the West Coast IPA style and authored a book on the subject, <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/IPA-Brewing-Techniques-Recipes-Evolution/dp/1938469003" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipe, and the Evolution of India Pale Ale</em></a>.  With a power team and a prime location, New Realm has seen explosive growth in their short six-month existence.</p> <p>With the unfortunate shuttering of Green Flash Brewing in Virginia Beach, New Realm seized an opportunity to grow quickly.  They purchased the brewery assets of the location and later worked a multi-year lease on the building.  Their soon-to-open Virginia brewery will allow New Realm to increase production as well as innovate new beers.  And then there's Charlotte.  After opening in Atlanta, a building they'd previously considered in Charlotte became available at a deal "too good to pass up", they purchased it.  Falcone shares a bit with us this week on what's going to happen in Virginia Beach and what the plans are for Charlotte.</p> <p>With Steele's masterful knowledge of IPA, we had to pick his brain on the subject.  We discuss the early days of American craft beer, how quickly its grown in a relatively short time period, the evolution of IPA, trends and fads, and whether or not he'll brew a NE Milkshake Smoothie Glitter IPA.  (Spoiler: No.  Definitely no.)</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <p>In this week's news, Brian shares the long-awaited location and date for 2018's Shelton Bros. Festival, info on a lawsuit about a beer named after a van that was named after a man, the cheapest place in the world to buy a beer, and a brewery that's going to be 100% non-alcoholic.</p> <h3>Beers of the Week</h3> <ul> <li>New Realm CJ's Breakfast Thunder | Amber Ale brewed with coffee, maple syrup... and pancakes.</li> <li>New Realm Golden Goal | Golden Goal</li> <li>New Realm Hoptropolis | American IPA</li> <li>New Realm Peter Danklage | NEIPA</li> </ul> <h3>Next Week: Old Nation Brewing Co.</h3>

<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Hardywood Park is determined to 'Brew With Purpose'</span></h2> <p>Hardywood Park Craft Brewery's founders Eric McKay and Patrick Murtaugh have known each other most of their lives.  After sampling some homebrew on a farm in Australia the stage was set.  After many years working in the craft beer industry, they were destined to open their own brewery.  McKay became Richmond, Virginia's first Certified Cicerone and while attending brewing school Murtaugh found out his family's brewing history goes back several generations.</p> <p>From the time they opened in 2011, Hardywood Park has strived to 'Brew With Purpose.'  They implement that mantra in their recipes, employee and customer relations, brewing with local ingredients, and minimizing their impact on the environment.  The brewery has grown to include three locations and expanded distribution offering a huge variety of styles and variants.  Their sought-after Gingerbread Stout taught them about dealing with hordes of consumers and is still anticipated each year.</p> <p>McKay and Murtaugh visited the Beer Guys Radio studios on their recent Atlanta market launch.  We sampled several of their beers while talking about their history, brewery growth, keeping up with demand, future expansion plans, brewing for Broadway, Brian shares a terrible collaboration suggestion, and we invent the Candall™.</p> <p>In the news, Brian gives us the scoop on ABInBev dirty tactics, NOFX acting foolish and getting the boot from beer sponsors, and Boston Beer Co.'s big fines in New York.</p> <h3>Beers of the Week</h3> <ul> <li>Bearded Iris Kinetic | IPA</li> <li>Creature Comforts Stone Ground | Pilsner</li> <li>Creature Comforts Calculating Infinity | Pale Ale</li> <li>Hardywood Park Bourbon Cru | BBA Quad</li> <li>Hardywood Park Cuvee Peach | White wine barrel-aged Tripel with peaches</li> <li>Hardywood Park Singel | Blonde Ale</li> <li>Hardywood Park Pils | German Pilsner</li> <li>Hardywood Park VIPA | Virgindia Pale Ale</li> </ul> <p>an Pilsner</p> <ul> <li>Hardywood Park VIPA | Virgindia Pale Ale</li> </ul>

von Trapp Brewing on making lagers in the land of hazy IPAs
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In the land of hazy IPAs, von Trapp loves their lagers</span></h2> <p>von Trapp brewing in Stowe, Vermont is smack in the middle of NE IPA country, but they're all about lagers.</p> <p>Founder Johannes von Trapp was inspired by the lagers her sampled while visiting the countryside of his ancestral home on Austria.  With a goal to brew an American version of these beers, von Trapp Brewing opened in the lower level of Trapp Family Lodge's DeliBakery.  Today, they're brewing 50,000 gallons of beer each year and distributing to several neighboring states.</p> <p>Brewmaster JP Williams was born in New Jersey and attended college in New Hampshire.  During his college days, he took a trip to Dublin, Ireland and visited the Guinness Brewery, sparking his interest in all things beer.  He later traded in some textbooks to buy homebrew gear and even changed his major to include more chemistry.  His brewing career started at Magic Hat where he worked his way up to Operations Manager however he realized big brewery life wasn't for him and joined von Trapp in 2012.</p> <p>This week we talk with JP about von Trapp's beer and other ventures, if he's ever been tempted to jump on the haze craze bandwagon, what Lager life is like with increasing demand for the styles, Vermont's new franchise reform laws, and what's coming up from the brewhouse.</p> <p>We also welcome Brian to the bigs as he takes on his new role as Co-Host and say hello to Jerry Payne, who joins Beer Guys Radio as our Audio Engineer.  Jerry brings 10+ years in radio and podcasting to the team - and he loves beer.  Perfect.  Plus, we'll reminisce about all the beers we enjoyed over the last week with stops at Orpheus for their multi-day anniversary celebration, the brand new Porter Pizza & Brewery, and a visit to Pontoon Brewing to sample their new Fluffy Otter Oatmeal Cream Stout with marshmallows and vanilla.  What a week.</p>

I have truly enjoyed my time with Beer Guys, and am incredibly indebted to Tim for introducing me to the world of beer. I am happy to call Tim, Brian and Becky friends, and I look forward to what they can do with this show. Cheers! - Aaron.</p>

Belgian Beers with Kraig Torres and Jen Price

420 Fest and the SweetWater Experience

Georgia's Brewing History: 1738-2018
<p>Despite the challenges brewers have faced post-Prohibition in Georgia, our state has a rich history of brewing.  The first brewery was started in Georgia in 1738 and Atlanta was home to one of the largest breweries in the country from 1858 until 1955.  Early craft breweries had varying levels of success in a world where most people were still content with their macro-brewed lagers.  However, in the past 5 years the number of breweries in Georgia has more than doubled, and there are more on the way.</p> <p>Ron Smith and Mary O. Boyle, authors of Atlanta Beer and Prohibition in Atlanta sit down with us at the 2018 Roswell Beer Festival to share some of the great stories behind Georgia's breweries.  From the very first brewery, whose early foundations were based on the necessity of having a drink that wasn't filled with bacteria (like water) through to the modern movement towards local and hyper-local breweries.</p> <p>Credit to Michael Lundmark of Jekyll Brewing for the information on Georgia's first brewery, located on Jekyll Island. </p>

BeeCraft Mead Co.'s Derek Piper and Tom Dilbeck
<h2>Mead is one of the, if not the, oldest forms of alcohol in existence.</h2> <p>And you can see why - take honey, add water, and voila! Of course, it's much more complicated than that. And Dawsonville's BeeCraft Meadery is working hard to make its mead stand out. From entry level meads to barrel aging to terracotta vessels, BeeCraft is making its mead from local honey and creating a buzz in the area. See what we did there?</p> <p>We are at Monday Night Brewing's Garage to talk to co-founders Derek Piper and Tom Dilbeck about the mead making industry and more!</p> <p>(Did you know that it takes more than a million blossoms to make one bottle of mead?)</p> <h3>Truck and Tap's Beers Of the Week:</h3> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.wreckingbarbrewpub.com/">Wrecking Bar</a> Jemmy Stout and Tampa Timeshare</li> <li><a href="https://www.beecraftmead.com/">BeeCraft Meadery</a> meads</li> <li><a href="http://www.drycountybrewco.com/">Dry County</a> Bad Hombre and Imperial Milk Chocolate Stout</li> </ul> <h3>Headlines:</h3> <ul> <li><a href= "https://www.craftbeer.com/craft-beer-muses/juicy-or-hazy-ales-new-england-ipa-style-guide"> 2018 Beer Style Guidelines from the Brewers Association has “Juicy or Hazy” styles</a></li> <li><a href= "https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/03/reddit-has-banned-rbeertrade-one-of-the-webs-bigge.html"> Reddit has banned r/beertrade</a></li> <li><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/TwoTidesBrewing/photos/a.1566385270050881.1073741829.1429214907101252/1817345178288221/?type=3&theater"> Two Tides Brewing Company opened last Saturday in Savannah</a></li> <li><a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2018/03/20/hop-soul-brewery-brunswick-ga/"> Hop Soul Brewery is coming to Georgia’s Golden Isles</a></li> <li><a href= "http://www.mdjonline.com/neighbor_newspapers/north_fulton/news/star-house-celebrates-th-year-with-new-logo-and-new/article_25c567b4-2bac-11e8-be37-e3225ee1d114.html"> STAR House marks their 25th year with a new logo and additions to Roswell Beer Fest</a></li> </ul> <p>Coming up next week, while Tim and Smalls are out on assignment, Brian and Aaron take to Tinypalooza to cover the shenanigans there.

Preventing Off-flavors in Homebrew Beer
<p>We're broadcasting from Monday Night Brewing's Garage this week. </p> <p>Does your homebrew blonde ale continually have an underripe apple taste? Or is there a rancid butter taste in your porter? Does your IPA taste more like band-aids than tropical hops? </p> <p>This is the show for you. BJCP Grand Master beer judge Mike Castagno was an award-winning homebrewer before going pro at Decatur, GA's Twain's Brewpub. And BJCP Certified beer judge Nate Watkins is another award-winning prolific homebrewer. We talk about some of the mistakes homebrewers make, the off-flavors that can crop up, and how to fix them.</p> <p>We discuss some of the things you can do before you brew to minimize the risk of off-flavors as well as sharing some details on common off-flavors such as acetaldehyde, diacetyl, chlorophenol, fusel / alcoholic, DMS (dimethyl sulfide), esters, oxidation, and the much-dreaded skunking.  Mike and Nate also share some info on homebrew clubs and ways you can train your palate to recognize off-flavors.  </p> <p>Plus, we talk to Michael Lowenberg of Modern Hops about the upcoming Day of the Juice festival.</p>

ACAT with Line Creek, Split Batch, Banyan Roots
<p><strong>When you think of cask ales, you may think of warm, flat beer. </strong></p> <p>That's not the case, and Owen Ogletree wants you to know about it. </p> <p>For the past 14 years, he's hosted the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Breweries from around the south (and the world) send in their special beers they've made specifically to go on cask. </p> <p>For this show, we talk to some breweries in planning, including:</p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Line Creek Brewing (Peachtree City)</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Split Batch Brewery (Duluth area)</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Banyan Roots (Atlanta Westside)</span></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Truck and Tap Beers of the Week:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Cask ales, of course! </li> </ul> <p>Coming up next week, we're talking to another new brewery.
