Wicked Weed / AB InBev and Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative - Episode 71 - 5/6/17
<p>This week's show comes on the heels of the news that Ab-InBev "partnered" with North Carolina craft brew stalwart Wicked Weed Brewing. When the largest brewer in the world buys one of the "craftiest" companies out there, it's sure to ruffle some feathers. So that's what we talked about.</p> <p>We broadcast at Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative, who recently celebrated their anniversary. The brewpub out of Cumming, Georgia, is growing and distributing rapidly, and that keeps Nick Tanner's team busy!</p> <p>If you're out and about this weekend, we'll be at the Wrecking Bar's Wild Wild Beer Festival (without Wicked Weed, apparently) as well as the Gwinnett Beer Fest. Come out and say hi to us. Cheers! and DRINK LOCAL. </p>

Specifically, some of the great ones in the southeast (and the country), and our opinions on what makes a great beer fest. Also, some tips for newbies on surviving one!</p> <p>We broadcast from the mobile Airstream studios of <a href= "https://30a.com/">30A</a> Radio, so we talked to Cory Davis about the beer scene in the Florida panhandle. Some great information for folks looking to travel south on vacation this summer.</p> <h3><a href="http://truckandtap.com/">Truck and Tap</a>'s Beers of the Week</h3> <p>At the SweetWater Experience tent, they really pulled out the stops. With 28 beers on tap - almost every one only available in limited amounts and usually at the brewery - we took advantage of it.</p> <p>First, we sampled SweetWater's Mexican Lager, a great easy drinker for beach, parties...or concerts!</p> <p>But next, Tim and Aaron were able to introduce Cory to one of their favorite SweetWater beers, the Exodus Porter. And in no way should this serve as a plea for SweetWater to return this brew back into production.....</p> <h3>Headlines (sponsored by <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/YourPieP/">Your Pie Perimeter</a>):</h3> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.cw.ua.edu/article/2017/04/new-craft-beer-hangout-comes-to-tuscaloosa-in-june"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Brass Tap expanding to Tuscaloosa</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/scofflawbrewingco/?ref=br_rs"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Scofflaw doubling production capacity - 4 new 90 barrel tanks coming - from CRL Contracting!</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.sheltonbrothers.com/festival/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Shelton Brothers Festival coming to Atlanta</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/printersbeer/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Printer’s Ale Manufacturing opens up first production brewery in Carrolton.</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.bisnow.com/atlanta/news/retail/no-taxation-for-sudsification-73496"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">New Realm seeking development bonds from the city of Atlanta. </span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Cherry Street has expanded production - look for 16oz cans coming this summer.</span></li> </ul> <p>Coming up next week?

The Rebirth of Helenboch - PODCAST EXTRA
<div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_36859" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><img class="size-full wp-image-36859" src="http://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Friends-Brewing-and-Beer-Cart.jpg" alt="Friends Brewing Beer Cart" width="800" height="600" /></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd"><em>As Georgia was a bit behind the times in 1990 Friends Brewing had to personally pull their beer to the distributor with their beer cart. (Credit: Dow Scoggins)</em></dd> </dl> </div> <h2>Max Lager's and Friends Brewing bring a long gone Georgia beer back to life</h2> <p>Opened in Helen in 1990, Friends Brewing and the Helenboch Brewery was Georgia's first craft brewery.  It was a very different time for beer in Georgia, and across the US.  <em>Microbrew</em> was the term used for what we call craft beer today, Georgia still had a 6% cap on ABV, lagers were the preferred styles, and Friends Brewing was just the 175th microbrewery in the US.</p> <p>Friends made a great impression on the beer scene when they launched, Helenboch won silver at the Great American Beer Festival in 1989 and Helenboch Oktoberfest took gold in 1991.  The famed beer writer Michael Jackson visited the brewery as well, and no visit to Georgia is complete without a trip to Waffle House where Jackson experienced the greatness of hash browns served scattered, smothered, covered, topped, and chunked.</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_36861" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><img class="size-large wp-image-36861" src= "http://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Friends-Brewing-with-Michael-Jackson-800x580.jpg" alt="Friends Brewing Michael Jackson" width="800" height= "580" /></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Michael Jackson once visited Friends Brewing.  After sharing their beers with him they took him to Waffle House.  Welcome to Georgia, Mr. Jackson. (Credit: Rick Roberts/Dow Scoggins)</dd> </dl> </div> <h3>Helenboch Brewery Produced Award Winning Beers</h3> <p>Helenboch beer was brewed in Helen from 1990-1991 and contract brewed through 1998.  After being gone for nearly 20 years a Facebook message to Friends Brewing's President Dow Scoggins from <a href="http://www.helenbackraceseries.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Helenback Race Series</a> founder Dan Wilkins set the wheels in motion to bring it back to life.  Scoggins posted to see if a brewery would let him brew his beer with them... or give him $500,000 to re-open a brewery.  He didn't get any funding offers but <a href="http://maxlagers.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Max Lager's</a> John Roberts saw the post and reached out to Dow and in short order they agreed to make Helenboch happen again.</p> <p>As with many microbreweries of the day Friends Brewing is no more, but the original owners are still very passionate about beer.  I sat down recently with Rick Roberts, Frank Cronin, and Dow Scoggins from Friends; John Roberts from Max Lager's; and Dan Wilkins from the Helenback Race Series to sample and talk about this old/new brew and the memories it brought back.</p> <p>You can try Helenboch beer at Max Lager's now "until it's gone" or run the Helenback Race Series on April 29th and enjoy a pour at the finish line.</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_36863" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><img class="wp-image-36863 size-large" src= "http://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Helenboch-Beer-800x533.jpg" alt="Helenboch Beer" width="800" height="533" /></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd"><em>The modern version of Helenboch beer, sampled at Max Lager's Brewpub in Atlanta, GA.  Get it while you can.</em></dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_36862" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><img class="wp-image-36862 size-large" src= "http://beerguysradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Helenboch-Beer-6-Pack-800x533.jpg" alt="Helenboch Beer Original" width="800" height="533" /></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd"><em>A six-pack of the original Helenboch beer still survives after nearly 20 years.</em></dd> </dl> </div>

Nick Purdy, Wild Heaven Beer - PODCAST EXTRA
<p>Tim and Aaron sat down at the Porter Beer Bar with Nick Purdy from Wild Heaven Beer. We had a great conversation, ranging from SB85's impact on their brewery, the plans for the second location, and how to get the best watermelon flavor out of a watermelon (hint: it involves lots of work). </p>

TopGolf Midtown, SweetWater and Ale Sharpton - Episode 65 - 3/25/17
<p>On a dark and stormy night, we headed out to TopGolf Midtown for the finals of their winter league. </p> <p>As luck would have it, we were joined by Tucker Berta-Sarkisian and Brian "Diggs" Diggelmann from SweetWater Brewing, Gina Silva and Tyler Vigue from TopGolf, and the one and only Ale Sharpton! </p> <p>Spring Beers were on the discussion list, and we talked about the change in season, and the transition from maltier, darker beers to hops and saisons. </p> <p>Truck and Tap's Beers of the Week: </p> <p>Lots of them. Ale shared some beers from his recent trip to Charlotte, including NoDa's Hop Cakes Double IPA. Plus, SweetWater's Wookie Down Imperial Red Ale, its newest Dank Tank Release. And 420, Jekyll's Hop Dang Diggity....and more!</p> <p>Headlines (Sponsored by Your Pie Perimeter)</p> <p>SB85 HAS PASSED! Finally, Georgia becomes the last state to allow direct sales for brewers and distillers in the state. What does that mean? Basically, we will no longer have to deal with the farce of buying a tour and getting free samples. Yes, that means that you can actually go to a brewery and order a pint of their beer. Amazing stuff on 2017. Looks like the rules will go into effect late summer or early fall of this year, so stay tuned.</p> <p>One great announcement on the heels of this - Wild Heaven will open a second location on the Beltline. </p> <p>Other news headlines: </p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Phil Ferrell running for AHA Board of Governors</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Max Lager’s revives one of Georgia’s first craft beers: Helenboch lager from Friends Brewing Co.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.al.com/business/index.ssf/2017/03/mill_creek_brewing_signs_distr.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Tennessee’s Mill Creek Brewing Signs agreement to distro in Alabama</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.wftv.com/news/trending-now/student-on-spring-break-caught-with-truckload-of-beer-police-say/504118923"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Student on Spring Break caught with truckload of natty light</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-a-michelin-star-brewpub-portends-the-future-for-craft-beer-2017-03-16"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Michelin star brewery the future for craft beer?</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4328746/San-Diego-brewery-makes-beer-SEWAGE-water.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Stone makes beer out of sewage water</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.citypages.com/restaurants/paul-ryan-ties-inspire-boycott-of-sellout-craft-beer-ballast-point/416613913"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Paul Ryan ties have some people boycotting Ballast Point</span></a></li> </ul> <p>Next week, we're continuing this road trip.

Mercier Orchards, Georgia Craft Brewers Guild and Nuit Belge - Episode 58 - 2/4/17
<h2>A busy week! </h2> <p>Not only is there some important football game going on this Sunday (#RISEUP), we invited a veritable plethora of guests on the show. </p> <p>Nancy Palmer of the <a href= "http://www.georgiacraftbrewersguild.org/">Georgia Craft Brewer's Guild</a> joined us on the exciting news about SB 85 - a bill that would actually (*gasp*) allow brewers to sell beer (wait for it...) at the brewery! Regardless, this is great news for Georgia's beer community. This bill, a compromise between the Guild and distributors, would allow:</p> <ul> <li>Breweries to sell up to 3,000 barrels of beer made on premises, by the glass and up to one case per customer. <a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2017/01/26/georgia-beer-bill-law-sb85/">Read more details here</a>. </li> </ul> <p>In studio? We had a little change of pace. Tony Jones and Ian Flom from <a href="http://www.mercier-orchards.com/">Mercier Orchards</a> took a trip down from Blue Ridge to talk all things cider. We were able to talk about the history of Mercier Orchards and cider, as well as the process for making it. </p> <p>Also, we talked to Matt Leff of <a href= "http://www.nuitbelge.com/atlanta/">Nuit Belge</a>. Coming to Atlanta's The Foundry At Puritan Mill, Nuit Belge combines some amazing chefs with Belgian (and Belgian-inspired) beers. It's coming up on Feb. 25, and if you use the promo code BGR10, you'll get $10 off the ticket! <a href= "http://www.nuitbelge.com/atlanta/">Tickets and details here</a>. </p> <h3><a href="http://truckandtap.com/">Truck and Tap's</a> Beer of the Week</h3> <p>Well, OK. Ciders of the week. Including: </p> <ul> <li>Mercier Orchards Grumpy Granny, made from Granny Smith apples</li> <li>Rock Steady Red, a cider blended with strawberries</li> <li>Black Bee, made from Arkansas Black apples and clover honey</li> <li>Old #3, made from Gold Rush apples</li> </ul> <p>Coming up next week? Back to the beer, as we talk to the folks behind the iconic Decatur spot <a href= "http://www.twains.net/">Twain's Brewpub & Billiards</a> and new head brewer Mark Castagno joins us, among others. In the meantime, drink local...and Cheers! </p> <h3>Thanks to our show sponsors:</h3> <ul> <li>Truck and Tap</li> <li><a href="https://www.facebook.com/YourPieP/">Your Pie Perimeter</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.crlcontracting.com/">CRL Contracting</a></li> <li>Nuit Belge</li> <li><a href="http://www.thenestkennesaw.com/">The Nest</a></li> <li><a href="http://thestoutbrothers.com/">Stout Brothers / Smyrna Beer Market</a></li> </ul>

Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting - Episode 57 - 1/28/17
<p><strong>What an amazing event! </strong></p> <p>If you haven't been to one of the 13 iterations of the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting, then you're missing out. Owen Ogletree, owner of Brewtopia.com, puts on the event every year at the Prado in Sandy Springs. This year's version featured more than 60 casks of unique and creative beers from Georgia, national and international brewers! </p> <p>We took advantage of our attendance at ACAT to drink some amazing beers (of course), but also to get updates on a few breweries and brewpubs in planning. </p> <p>First on the list was Mitch Steele. The former brewmaster for Stone Brewing is working with his partners to open up a brewpub on the Atlanta beltline sometime late in 2017. We spoke with him about the plans, and the reason why they picked Atlanta. </p> <p>Next, Owen took some time out of his busy day to talk about casks. What they are, the history involved, and why they are so much more nuanced than "normal" tapped beers. </p> <p>In our third segment, we speak to Matt and Lauren Curling, the husband and wife team behind Roswell's Variant Brewing Company. Also planning a 2017 launch, we talk about how they got started in craft beer (hint: it wasn't Matt at first!) and the trials and tribulations of starting up a new brewery. </p> <p>We also talk with our great sponsors, Your Pie Perimeter, about their upcoming Second Anniversary party. </p> <p>Ryan Skinner and Todd DeMatteo joined us in the fourth segment. Ryan and Todd are planning a new brewpub, Good Word, in craft beer starved Gwinnett County. We talked about starting up a new brewpub in downtown Duluth, as well as their idea for bringing the comforts of home to a brewpub.</p> <p>Finally, we were lucky enough to grab two of the world's foremost experts on cask ales.  Des de Moor is a London-based beer judge and writer; and Steve Hamburg is a Chicago-area writer and beer judge. Both are cask experts, and we talk about the cask movement in the United States and what makes a great cask ale.</p> <p>Next week, we'll be cidering it up with the folks behind Mercier Orchards. Thanks for listening, and don't forget...drink local! </p> <p> </p>

<p>At the Beer Guys Radio Show, we love our craft beer. </p> <p>But once in a while, we like to break the mold a bit.  And that's what we did this week.

Erik Vonk from Savannah's Richland Rum joined us, as did Michael Anderson from Decatur's Independent Distilling. </p> <p>Craft beer and craft distilling has many things in common, and we talk to Erik and Michael about that, including how they got their start in distilling.

Arches Brewing - Episode 44 - 10/29/16
<p><strong>It takes some courage to open up a craft brewery focusing mainly on lagers. </strong></p> <p>After all, lagers require a little more love...time...and temperature control before they're ready to serve. </p> <p>And for the most part, craft beer drinkers are mainly an ale-centric bunch. </p> <p>But for the men behind Hapeville's <a href= "https://www.archesbrewing.com/">Arches Brewing</a>, lagers are a way to showcase their brewing skills.</p> <p>Ryan Fogelgren and Jamey Adams joined us in the studios this week.</p> <p>Specializing in crisp, clean-drinking (mainly) German-style beers, the crew behind Arches have gained a good following in the community, and have even gained fans at the nearby Porsche headquarters. </p> <p>We talked about their start in the brewing business, their growth, and the future.</p> <p><a href="http://truckandtap.com/">Truck and Tap</a>'s Beers of the Week: </p> <p>Speaking of lagers, we tried:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://reformationbrewery.com/">Reformation Brewery's</a> new "95" German Dunkel</li> <li>Arches Unseasonal Lager</li> <li>Arches Imperial Pilsner</li> <li>Arches Aged Russian Imperial Stout</li> </ul> <h3><strong>Headlines - Brought to you by <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/YourPieP/?fref=ts&ref=br_tf">Your Pie Perimeter</a>!</strong></h3> <h3><strong>GEORGIA NEWS</strong></h3> <p><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/WreckingBar/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE&fref=nf"> Atlanta's Wrecking Bar Brewpub becomes latest brewpub to offer growlers to go</a>(source: Wrecking Bar)</p> <p><a href= "http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com/brewery-blog/2016/10/20/you-asked-we-heard-more-variety-in-the-tasting-room"> More variety coming to Athens' Creature Comforts tasting room</a> (source: Creature Comforts)</p> <p><a href= "http://www.mdjonline.com/news/business/cleaned-up-red-hare-announces-a-new-design-change-new/article_5e9eafa6-96fb-11e6-ad38-073e0b1dd17c.html"> Design changes, new offerings for Marietta's Red Hare</a> (source: Marietta Daily Journal)</p> <h3><strong>ALABAMA NEWS</strong></h3> <p><a href= "http://www.al.com/news/beaches/index.ssf/2016/10/big_beach_brewing_co.html"> Big Beach Brewing opens in Gulf Shores</a> (source: AL.com)</p> <p><a href= "http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2016/10/hammer-wielding_suspect_dies_f.html"> Hammer-wielding suspect dies fleeing scene of Alabama beer theft</a> (source: AL.com)</p> <p><a href= "http://www.gadsdentimes.com/news/20161018/second-craft-brewfest-oct-29-in-albertville"> Second Craft Brewfest going on this weekend in Albertville</a> (Source: The Gadsden Times)</p> <h3><strong>NATIONAL NEWS</strong></h3> <p><a href= "http://www.marketwatch.com/story/craft-beer-after-astounding-growth-suffers-from-growing-pains-2016-10-24"> Craft beer suffers from growing pains</a> (Source: CBS Marketwatch)</p> <p>So many questions.

Ron Smith and Mary O. Boyle - Episode 43
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong>A little history for you this week. </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ron Smith and Mary O. Boyle are with us today. Not only are they craft beer fans, they are the authors of “<a href="http://amzn.to/2dVbhxy">Atlanta Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in the South</a>” as well as <a href= "http://amzn.to/2eB7R2A">“Prohibition in Atlanta: Temperance, Tiger Kings and White Lightning.”</a></span></p> <p>Atlanta and the south have had a love/hate relationship with alcohol over the past 250 or so years. </p> <p>From the Whitehall Tavern opening on the West End in 1835 (back when Atlanta was called Terminus), to the mayoral election of Moses Frumwalt (of the awesomely named "Free and Rowdy" party) over Jonathan Norcross (of the "Moral Party), the early years of the region were quite...interesting. </p> <p>Then, with the Civil War, reconstruction, and the abolitionist movement, the region underwent many, many changes. </p> <p>The opening of Atlantic Brewing in 1935 (it was located on the current site of the downtown Hilton) marked a turn in Atlanta's brewing history. After its closing in the 50s, Atlanta's only brewery was a branch of Canadian beer maker <a href= "http://www.carlingbeer.ca/Carling-Lineup.html">Carling</a> (now made by Molson/Coors). And when it closed in 1973, Atlanta went nearly 4 decades without a brewery until Atlanta Brewing Company (now <a href="https://www.redbrickbrewing.com/">Red Brick</a>) opened its doors in 1993. </p> <p>We really needed 3 hours to get in-depth with this topic, and we definitely plan on having Mary and Ron on the show in the future. In the meantime, we highly recommend picking up their two books: </p> <ul> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2dVbhxy">“Atlanta Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in the South"</a></li> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2eB7R2A">“Prohibition in Atlanta: Temperance, Tiger Kings and White Lightning”</a></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://truckandtap.com/">Truck and Tap's</a> Beers of the week: </strong></p> <p>In keeping with the historical theme, we went with a couple from the vault, including:</p> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Red Brick 20th anniversary (2013)</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">SweetWater 17th anniversary (2014)</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Terrapin Tiramisu Hoo (2015)</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">And a newer one, Monday Night Brewing Blood Orange Blind Pirate IPA</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>Headlines (sponsored by <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=your%20pie%20perimeter">Your Pie Perimeter</a>)</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href= "http://alesharpton.blogspot.com/2016/10/pour-one-for-late-damien-schaefer.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Damien Schaefer, a stalwart in Georgia's craft beer scene, has passed away.</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">(source: Ale Sharpton)</span></li> <li><a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2016/10/17/creature-comforts-crescendo/"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Creature Comforts brews up a few new releases</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">(source: Beer Guys Radio)</span></li> <li><a href= "http://atlantarestaurants.blog.ajc.com/2016/10/19/mike-castagno-is-the-new-head-brewer-at-twains-brewpub-in-decatur/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Mike Castagno is new head brewer at Twain’s</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">(source: AJC)</span></li> <li><a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2016/10/18/terrapin-braves-fox-brothers-team/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Terrapin, Fox Brothers team up for brewpub at SunTrust Park</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">(source: Beer Guys Radio) </span></li> <li><a href= "http://www.connectsavannah.com/savannah/post-matthew-craft-beer-roll-call/Content?oid=3793754"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Savannah / Coastal Georgia's craft beer breweries and bottle shops came through Hurricane Matthew (relatively) unharmed</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">(Source: Connect Savannah)</span></li> <li><a href= "http://www.brewbound.com/news/red-hare-brewing-company-refreshes-can-designs-announces-winter-lineup"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Red Hare refreshes can design; announces winter lineup</span></a> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">(Source: Brewbound.com)</span></li> </ul> <p>Next week?

Terrapin Brewing Co. - Episode 42 - 10/15/16
