Brewvagelism with Oyster City Brewing - BGR 141
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><strong>Oyster City Brewing Co. is spreading the good word of craft beer in the Florida Panhandle</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There's not a whole lot in Apalachicola.  When visitors to this small coastal town asked for a local beer, the best they could do was from a brewery a couple of hours away.  The owners of the <a href= "http://owlcafeflorida.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Owl Cafe</a> and taproom saw an opportunity and after plenty of practice and planning, they opened <a href= "http://www.oystercitybrewingco.com/ocbc.html" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Oyster City Brewing Co.</a> in 2014.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Clayton Mathis has been a craft beer fan since college and is now the Head Brewer at Oyster City, but his LinkedIn profile says he's the <em>Head Brewvangelist</em>. He explains that more than just brewing beer, he wants to spread the word about craft beer to everyone.  A noble mission indeed.  We talk with Clayton about the craft beer scene in small-town Florida, brewing with unique ingredients, what beer pairs best with oysters, the interesting story behind their tap handles, and their upcoming <a href= "http://www.apalachoktoberfest.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Apalach Oktoberfest</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">In the news this week Brian continues his "Big Beer Can't Catch a Break" series with layoff news at MillerCoors, breweries pulling together to raise awareness via <a href="https://www.pintsforprostates.org/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Pints for Prostates</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We sampled a lot of Oyster City beer this week, including their award-winning Hooter Brown, enjoyed a Morning Snack from <a href= "http://www.threetavernsbrewery.com/welcome/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Three Taverns</a>, and a couple of brews coming up from upcoming <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/highcardbrewinginc/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">High Card Brewin</a>g in Tucker, GA.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><strong>Oyster City Brewing Co.</strong></span><br /> <span style="font-size: 10pt;">17 Avenue D</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 10pt;">Apalachicola, FL  32320</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 10pt;">(850) 653-2739</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://www.oystercitybrewingco.com/ocbc.html" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Website</a> | <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/OysterCityBrewingCompany/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a> | <a href= "https://untappd.com/v/oyster-city-brewing-company/1748549" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Untappd</a></span></p>

Brewing beer with craft malt from Riverbend Malt House - BGR 140
<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>

Honey wine is fine with Monks Meadery - BGR 139
<h2 class="mceTemp"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Monks Meadery says there's a story in every drop</span></h2> <p><a href="https://monksmead.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Monks Meadery</a> owner Justin Schoendorf started his business because the brewery scene was already "crowded" in Georgia with four breweries here, and he wanted to offer something different.  He started homebrewing beer in college and eventually migrated to meadmaking.  He enjoyed it, and so did his friends, and Georgia's first meadery was born.</p> <p>Schoendorf tells us exactly what mead is, we talk about the growth in popularity and availability, current mead trends, and Renaissance Festivals - Monks Meadery is the official mead of the Georgia Renaissance Festival, with a festival map on the can. (Pro tip.. he said his mead pairs perfectly with a roasted turkey leg.)</p> <p>Our beers (and meads) of the week...</p> <ul> <li>Monks Meadery Monks Mead | Traditional Mead</li> <li>Monks Meadery Peachin' to the Choir | Peach Tea Session Mead</li> <li>Monks Meadery Stigmata | Hibiscus Session Mead with rose, elderflower, and lightly hopped</li> <li>(Preview) Monks Meadery Abstinence in the Abbey | Belgian-inspired mead with coriander and hops fermented with Belgian yeast</li> <li>Creature Comforts Automatic | Pale Ale</li> <li>Hi-Wire Horchata 10W-40 Horchata | Horchata-inspired Stout</li> <li>Monday Night Dust Bunny | Hazy IPA</li> </ul> <p>In the news this week we hear about Brew Dog's new beer hotel, New Realm opening in Virginia Beach, and China's love of Budweiser.</p> <p>Be sure to tune in next week as we talk with Riverbend Malt House about craft malts.</p>

<h2>What's luck if you ain't from Kentucky?</h2> <p>The founders of Louisville, Kentucky's <a href= "http://www.atgbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Against the Grain Brewery</a> got their start because they weren't satisfied with the way beer was being represented in their town.  After a disappointing visit to a local brewpub, whose brewhouse sat unused in a dark and dusty corner, they hunted down the owner and offered to buy the place.  Today, Against the Grain Brewery and Smokehouse is nestled in that spot at Louisville Slugger Field, home to baseball's minor league Louisville Bats.</p> <p>This week, co-owner Sam Cruz joins us to talk about their journey to opening the brewery, how beer names drive recipe creation, and how Japan and Europe are just small steps in their plan for world domination because "Everyone deserves Against the Grain beer."</p> <p>We're also joined by Fish Scales and Skinny Deville of <a href= "http://nappyroots.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Nappy Roots</a> and <a href="https://www.instagram.com/atlantucky/?hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Atlantucky Brewing</a>.  If you're a regular listener of Beer Guys Radio you've likely heard us talk beer with the Nappy Roots crew before.  We discuss their collaboration with Against the Grain, Water-Melon Chiquen & Gritz, and how that collaboration is launching new beer adventures for them.</p> <p>Our featured beers this week were all about Against the Grain:</p> <ul> <li>Pome and Grabbit | Tart Wheat Ale with ginger and pomegranate</li> <li>London Balling | English-style Barleywine aged in Angel's Envy bourbon barrels (A Beer Guys favorite)</li> <li>Stave it for Later: Maple Bockin’ Pastries | Doppelbock with West Virginia maple syrup</li> <li>Kamen Knuddeln | Kentucky Common</li> </ul> <p>In the news this week we discuss a 'raid" on a Georgia homebrew club meeting, additional evidence of the world's oldest beer, and improved brewery laws in Illinois.</p> <p>Make sure to tune in next week as we talk with Athens, Georgia's <a href="https://monksmead.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Monk's Mead</a>.</p>

Tim and Brian talk IPA after guest ghosting - BGR 137
<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 - Beer Guys Radio 136
<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 - Beer Guys Radio 135
<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>

Reformation Brewery's Spencer Nix reflects on 5 years ahead of opening his 2nd location - Beer Guys Radio 134
<h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Reformation Brewery prepares to 'Set Beer Free' at their second location</span></h2> <p>Woodstock, GA is a fairly small community about 30 miles north of Atlanta.  It's been my home for 14 years and <a href= "https://reformationbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Reformation Brewery</a>'s home for nearly five.  When I moved here the "big" news/controversy in town was the opening of a new Super Wal-Mart.  Many of the city's elder residents didn't think we needed that kind of growth, the old Wal-Mart was just fine (it wasn't).  Now, the Downtown Woodstock area is lined with shops and restaurants, we have an amphitheater, a really nice trail system, and a brewery.</p> <p>As Reformation approaches that 5th anniversary, they're preparing to open their second location.  The 6,00-square-foot space is in the heart of Downtown Woodstock, close to all those fancy amenities I mentioned earlier.  A 5-barrel brewhouse will serve up a variety of small-batch beers to visitors.  The split plan will have various areas to relax and enjoy your brew, with one section set up to have a coffeehouse feel.  The brewery has partnered with <a href="https://www.eatatqueenies.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Queenie's Southern Restaurant & Bar</a> for food service and space will be available for private events.</p> <p>We sat down with Reformation Co-founder and Brewmaster Nick Downs this week to talk about the new digs, new beers, his faith and how that influences his business, and what he envisions for Reformation in the future.  We also share a story about Martin Luther and how he helped promote the use of hops in beer.</p> <p>Fresh back from Las Vegas, Brian drops some cigar info our way with his recap of new offerings discovered at the annual IPCPR cigar convention.  If you want more cigar info be sure to check out <a href="http://www.stogiereview.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">StogieReview.com</a> where Brian waxes poetic about his love for burning dead leaves.</p> <p>In the news this week <a href="http://www.threeweavers.la/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Three Weavers</a> joins <a href= "https://www.canarchy.beer/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">CANarchy</a>, the <a href= "https://www.greatamericanbeerfestival.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Great American Beer Fest</a> will be bigger than ever, and a punk album about craft beer.  We also welcome KCPX 1490 AM in Moab, UT as our newest radio affiliate.  Catch Beer Guys Radio on KCPX Canyon Crossing every Sunday at 3:00 PM Mountain time.</p> <p>Next week make sure to tune in for our interview with Alabama's <strong><a href="https://www.commonbondbrewers.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Common Bond Brewers</a></strong>.</p> <h3><strong>Beers of the Week</strong></h3> <ul> <li>Reformation Nolan IPA</li> <li>Reformation Sabine Saison</li> <li>Reformation Wine Barrel-aged Cadence (Test batch for the 5th-anniversary beer)</li> <li>Burial / Jackie-O's Blackfalls Baltic Porter with spicebush</li> </ul>

Newcomer Two Tides Brewing Co. is making waves in Savannah - Beer Guys Radio 133
<h2>Two Tides owner James Massey talks about the journey from CPA to IPA</h2> <p>Savannah, Georgia's <a href="https://www.twotidesbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Two Tides Brewing Co.</a> is only four months old but they're already making waves with their IPAs and sour beers.  While getting his accounting degree, Owner and Head Brewer James Massey started homebrewing.  After college, he became a CPA and spent several years shuffling numbers before deciding it was time to start his brewery.  Savannah already had a few breweries but James wanted to build in an area where they weren't allowed.  He worked with business owners in the area and the city to change that.  After a long battle, Two Tides became a reality.</p> <p>We talk with James about hazy IPAs, sour beers, small-batch brewing, the importance of branding and artwork, and serving frozen beer from a gas station slushie machine.  We also get a few pairing suggestions for Two Tides' beers and decide that each day needs a total of four drinking sessions.</p> <h3>Craft Beer News</h3> <p>In the news this week Brian tells us about more Big Beer buyouts, celebrating a Belgian saint (with beer, of course), breweries returning to reusable bottles, and a brewery and a donut shop collaborating on a beer.</p> <h3><strong>Beers of the Week</strong></h3>

<h2>The 5th Segment with Hop Soul Brewery</h2> <p>Hop Soul founders Justin and Elizabeth Crandall were in Atlanta over the 4th of July holiday and joined us in the studio last week.  Our featured guest was Chris Meadows of Elkmont Exchange, but we wanted to give a bit of info on Hop Soul as well.  I mean, they did take time out to come visit us, it's the least we could do.  After the regular taping we kept chatting and we realized we still had some good info to share so we turned the mics back on and... boom, 5th segment.</p> <p>In this extra episode we find out a bit more about what's going to happen at Hop Soul, why they chose an old Shoney's for their brewery location, the craft beer scene in Georgia's Golden Isles, tasting rooms, the beach, quality vs. quantity, and who Justin considers craft beer's "new Budweiser."</p> <p>Hop Soul is targeting to open in Brunswick, GA by October 1, 2018.  To keep up with their progress visit their <a href= "http://hopsoulbrewery.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">website</a> or follow them on <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/hopsoulbrewery/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a> or <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/hopsoulbrewery/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>.</p> <h3>What is "The 5th Segment"</h3> <p>The 5th segment is unscripted, uninterrupted, casual conversation.  It could be additional content we couldn't fit in a regular episode or other short interviews, previews, or discussions.  We don't really have any rules here, but we hope you enjoy them.</p>

Elkmont Exchange brings craft beer and charcuterie to Knoxville - Beer Guys Radio 132
<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. - Beer Guys Radio 130
<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>

New Realm Brewing Co. is booming on the Beltline - Beer Guys Radio 129
<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>

von Trapp Brewing
<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>

Savannah River Brewing Company
<p>When you think about Augusta, you probably think about that big golf tournament. </p> <p>You likely don't think about craft beer. And up until a couple years ago, you'd be right. Georgia's second largest city had been a beer desert. But some pioneers are starting to change that. </p> <p>From beer bars like the Hive to breweries like Riverwatch and Savannah River Brewing Company, it's now possible to get some great craft beer in the city. </p> <p>On this episode, we talk to Savannah River Brewing Company owner Steve Ellison, head brewer Adam Fullmer and taproom manager Ashlie Arsenault about the craft scene, developing a brewery, and the startup process.

420 Fest and the SweetWater Experience
<p>420 Fest descends on Atlanta this week and we sat down with brewers Nick Nock and Nick Burgoyne to talk about the SweetWater Experience tent.  They share info on the beers available - from collaboration brews to barrel-aged offerings, and wild and funky stuff from SweetWater's Woodlands.</p> <p>If you only know SweetWater for their hoppy beers (like 420) then the SweetWater Experience is a great way to explore more of what they can do.  SweetWater's pilot brewery, dubbed The Hatchery, allows brewers to get creative on small-batch beers that visitors get to sample in the taproom.  For the more adventurous, SweetWater's Woodlands is brewing up a variety of wild, sour, and funky beers as well as big, barrel-aged stouts.  There's a lot more to SweetWater than IPA.</p>

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>

Homebrewing - Off Flavors
<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>

Ironmonger Brewing
<p><em>(note: Ironmonger Brewing is a partner of Beer Guys Radio)</em></p> <p><strong>David Sheets loves a challenge. </strong></p> <p>As the founder of <a href= "http://ironmongerbrewing.com/">Ironmonger Brewing</a>, he was looking for a way to get his brewery's beers noticed.</p> <p>So he made the bold decision: Blind taste his beers against one of the most heralded breweries in the country. </p> <p>The Trillium Challenge was born. How did it work? He lets us know during the show. </p> <p>Broadcasting from their new Barrel room, we speak to Sheets and taproom manager Cam Goershel about Ironmonger's history, its future, and the upcoming festival season. </p> <p><strong>Truck and Tap’s Beers of the Week:</strong></p> <div style="margin-left: 2em;"> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Ironmonger Beers</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye</span></li> </ul> </div> <p><strong>Headlines:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://whatnowatlanta.com/halfway-crooks-files-permits-summerhill/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Halfway Crooks Making Progress on Brewery in Summerhill</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://beerstreetjournal.com/highland-brewing-debuts-a-massive-brand-refresh/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Highland Brewing Co. has completely revamped their branding</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.smyrnavision.com/smyrna-approves-carry-alcohol-policy-downtown-restaurant-district/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Smyrna approves “carry-out” alcohol policy in downtown restaurant district</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://beerpulse.com/2018/02/samuel-adams-new-england-ipa-a-hazy-juicy-ipa-goes-into-national-distribution-5680/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Sam Adams has gotten on board the Haze Craze Train</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.joe.ie/news/guinness-announce-release-brand-new-non-alcoholic-beer-612920"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Guinness is launching a new line of Non Alcoholic beer this month</span></a></li> <li style="list-style: none; display: inline;"> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/19/sports/olympics/germany-olympics-beer.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Related:  German olympic athletes herald benefit of NA Hefeweizen</span></a></li> </ul> </li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.andoveradvertiser.co.uk/uk_national_news/16035233.BrewDog_to_open____world_first____beer_hotel_in_Scotland/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">BrewDog is opening the world’s first “beer hotel” in Scotland</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/health/920808/how-to-live-longer-drinking-beer-wine%20%20http://fox8.com/2018/02/20/drinking-alcohol-more-effective-than-exercise-for-living-a-long-life-study-finds/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">New study: Drinking two beers a night could be the key to living a long life</span></a></li> <li style="list-style: none; display: inline;"> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/20/health/alcohol-disorder-dementia-risk-study/index.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Related: Excessive use could increase risk for all forms of dementia</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.medicaldaily.com/drink-beer-ward-dementia-antioxidant-found-hops-prevents-oxidative-stress-cognitive-320296"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Related: 2015 study finds antioxidant in hops slows cognitive decline</span></a></li> </ul> </li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/02/run-the-jewels-bring-hip-hop-to-the-breweries.html"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Hip-hop Duo Run The Jewels has announced a second beer Collaboration</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.brewbound.com/news/spencer-brewery-release-fruit-beer-series"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Spencer Trappist brewery coming out with Fruit Series</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://beerpulse.com/2018/02/orval-day-saturday-march-24-2018-5676/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Charitably Drinking: Saturday March 24th is Orval Day 2018</span></a></li> </ul> <p> </p>

14th Annual Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting
<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.

Macon Beer Company
<p><span style="font-size: 16px;"><strong>Yash Patel first started brewing at age 13. </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">While his dad was pretty happy about that, mom...not so much.

Wild Leap Brewing from LaGrange, GA

Gwinnett County's First Brewery
<p>Gwinnett County is metro Atlanta's second most populous county.</p> <p>However, until recently, it lacked one thing: Its own craft brewery. Lawrenceville's Slow Pour Brewing Company changed that earlier this year. </p> <p>Located just off the Lawrenceville Square, Slow Pour took a dilapidated building and turned it into a gathering place. </p> <p>One of Slow Pour's founders, John Reynolds and brewer Chase Medlin joins us on the show this week to talk about their journey...and their beers.  </p> <p>We also head to SweetWater Brewing to check out a collaboration with Relix Magazine and Kyle Hollingsworth of the String Cheese Incident. </p> <p>Plus, we sample Southbound's newest version of Moonlight Drive....and compare it to a 2015 version Aaron found in the back of his fridge.</p> <p><strong>Truck and Tap’s Beers of the Week:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Slow pour Beers</li> <li>Southbound Moonlight Drive </li> <li>Creature Comforts Galactic Space Circus</li> <li>Terrapin Mootella</li> </ul> <p><strong>Headlines: </strong></p> <ul> <li><a href="http://linecreekbrewing.com/" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow noopener"><ins>Line Creek Brewing Co. coming to Peachtree City</ins></a></li> <li><a href= "http://www.georgiacrown.com/news/oconee-brewing-company-sends-beer-no-can-craft-beer-ever-gone-outer-space/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener"><ins>Oconee Brewing - Beer.

Beer Cockails with Jason Santamaria
<p>To some, making a cocktail out of beer is a sin. </p> <p>But it's a delicious sin! </p> <p>Jason Santamaria, one of the founders of Second Self, started experimenting with beer cocktails in college as a way to make cheap beer taste better. </p> <p>Today? You could call him a mixologist. He regularly crafts cocktails for friends and family, and they dabble a little bit in (non-alcoholic) mixers at Second Self's taproom. </p> <p>We also talked about what's happening in the Atlanta brewery's world, including the new release of their ATAle cans to celebrate Pride week. </p> <p>Skye Estroff from the Taste of Atlanta also stopped by to tell us about their beers at the event.</p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Truck and Tap’s Beers of the Week:</strong></span></p> <ul> <li>Wild Heaven Fortress of Sourtude</li> <li>Second Self AT-Ale</li> <li>Beer Cocktails (check beerguysradio.com for the recipies)</li> </ul> <h3><strong>Headlines</strong></h3> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://atlantarestaurants.blog.ajc.com/2017/10/09/find-out-which-georgia-beers-took-top-honors-at-the-2017-great-american-beer-festival/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">GABF wrapup - Georgia winners, Alabama’s TrimTab also placed.</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2017/10/12/variant-brewing-roswell-first-look/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Variant set to open soon in Roswell</span></a></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2017/10/12/breaking-reformation-brewery-announces-plans-second-location-downtown-woodstock/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Reformation Brewery announces plans for second location in Downtown Woodstock</span></a></li> </ul> <p>Coming up next week, we're talking to craft beer advocate, state lawmaker and gubernatorial candidate Hunter Hill! </p>

Prost! to Oktoberfest
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong>For the Beer Guys, every season is beer drinking season. </strong></span></p> <p>But Oktoberfest is another level entirely. </p> <p>Plates of sausages and spaetzle, liters of lager...it's a great celebration to mark fall. </p> <p>Atlanta's <a href="https://derbiergarten.com/">Der Biergarten</a> is the closest you can get to Munich. With an authentic experience, traditional German fare and a great German beer list, it's the home of Bayern Munich soccer fans, so there you go. </p> <p>We talked to <span style="font-weight: 400;">Jeff Sime, Director of Operations and </span>Matt Yuhasz, Executive General Manager of <a href="https://lvmgt.com/">Legacy Ventures</a>.

"Pie"-nt Night With Eventide
<p>As it does so often, Geoffrey Williams' craft beer journey started with a Mr. Beer Kit. </p> <p>As students at Georgia Southern, Williams and friends Haley and Nathan Cowan, they brewed beer and experimented with fermentation. </p> <p>Fast forward, and Eventide Brewery is now Grant Park's brewery of choice. </p> <p>With a core brand of "Drinking Beers" (Kolsch, Pale Ale, IPA) on bottle shop shelves and a rotating tap of seasonals and one-offs in the tap room, Eventide has become a gathering place for locals in the Atlanta neighborhood. </p> <p>Speaking of gathering place, we broadcast on-location at Your Pie Perimeter. Not only are they one of our awesome sponsors, but they sling some great pie, with an amazing tap list.

Keepin' it Local with Green Bus
<p><strong>Green Bus doesn't distribute, rarely sells its beer outside its taproom, and they're OK with that. </strong></p> <p>When Jason Sledd named his homebrewery (Green Bus Brewing), many people joked that it was just a matter of time before he went "pro." </p> <p>But to Jason, that sounded like a great way to turn his hobby into drudgery.

Nappy Roots and Monday Night
<h2>Them Country Boyz from Nappy Roots talk collaboration, creativity, and independence</h2> <p>There are a lot of similarities between the craft beer world and making music.  Creativity, self-expression, and the fight to stay (or become) independent.  Atlanta/ Kentucky rap legends <a href="http://www.nappyroots.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Nappy Roots</a> and Monday Night Brewing had an immediate connection over these common themes.  Their first collaboration, Front Porch Pale Ale, was brewed and served up for their album release party at Monday Night for Another 40 Akerz.  The collab was a success and Nappy Roots recently returned to brew their second beer, The Humdinger.  Keep an eye out for this bourbon barrel-aged stout in 3-4 months, or whenever the beer says it's ready.</p> <h3>Catch Nappy Roots live at Monday Night's Garage Grand Opening</h3> <p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/341169569668259" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Monday Night's The Garage Grand Opening and 6th Anniversary</a> party is set for a two-day event Sept. 23-24, 2017 with Nappy Roots live Saturday night.  Expect some new beers and old favorites from Monday Night as they break in the new Lee+White development, which will also be the future home of Wild Heaven and Banyan Roots Brewing.</p>

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.

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>

We uncapped plenty of whales from BHB, thanks to Scott (and Brian Hewitt's) stash.</p> <p>Scott talked about the challenges of operating a small brewery under current Georgia laws, the special ambiance of the tap room (including one crazy Yelp review), and the ideas behind their many creative variants.

North Georgia, that is. </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt;">A few weeks ago, Tim took a trip to Blue Ridge. While there, he ran into Tom Fennell, owner of Fannin County Brewing. He joined us on the show via phone this week. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt;">We talked to Tom about his start in the craft beer industry, after realizing that a winery may not be in the cards for him. We also speak to the growth of craft beer in his small town, and the popularity of craft with the tourist crowd. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt;">Finally, we discuss the upcoming legislative session, and some of his conversations with Georgia Speaker of the House David Ralston, an influential member of the state house. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt;">In studio, we welcomed beer fan and podcaster Nubyjas Wilborn. A sportswriter by trade, he also talks craft beer on his <a href= "https://soundcloud.com/cold-slither/sets/beeritis">Beer it Is Podcast</a>.

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?

<h2>Beer, Baseball and Barbecue.

Terrapin Brewing Co. - Episode 42 - 10/15/16
<p>Spike was in the house today. </p> <p>No, not the inspiration for the great Elvis Costello album (at least not as far as we know), but "Spike" Buckowski, one of the founders of Athens' Terrapin Beer Company joined us in studio this week. </p> <p>We talked about their start, and growth - as the third oldest craft brewery in Georgia, they were instrumental in building the scene as we know it today.

In a Wild Heaven, There's a Cigar City
<p>We took the show on the road this week. </p> <p>All the way out to Avondale Estates to the home of <a href= "https://cigarcitybrewing.com/">Wild Heaven Craft Beers</a>. </p> <p>The folks there were busy, you see. They were brewing a collaboration with a little place from Florida called <a href= "https://cigarcitybrewing.com/">Cigar City</a>. </p> <p>So we were able to interview two amazing brewers at once - Wild Heaven's Eric Johnson and Cigar City's Wayne Wambles. </p> <p>We talk about Eric's non traditional entry into brewing, Wild Heaven's move to canning, and many more things...including what he and Wayne are cooking up!

Wayne and the Cigar City crew have spent the last several months traveling around the world, collaborating with brewers. One of their collabs happened to be with Ireland's <a href="http://www.galwaybaybrewery.com/">Galway Bay Brewery</a>, home of friend of the show Wil Avery. We sampled the result - Phaethon IPA - and gave Wayne his first taste as well! </p> <p>In the <strong>headlines (<a href= "https://www.facebook.com/YourPieP">sponsored by Your Pie - Perimeter</a>)</strong>, we talk about <a href= "http://beerguysradio.com/2016/09/12/stone-mitch-steele-brewpub-atlanta/"> Atlanta's newest planned brewpub</a>, headed by former Stone Brewing brewmaster Mitch Steele.

DJ Sex Panther is in the House!
<p>Happy 4th of July! One of the newest and coolest breweries in Birmingham, Trim Tab, stopped by today.</p> <p>Well, OK, he didn't physically stop by, but Trim Tab owner Harris Stewart was on the line. A former law student at the University of Alabama, Stewart soon realized that he was having a lot more fun home brewing than learning about being a barrister. So he and his wife set up shop in Birmingham. </p> <p>We talk about the inspiration behind "Trim Tab" (hint: Buckminster Fuller had something to do with it), and the importance of craft beer / breweries in creating a community. </p> <p>Plus, Mike O'Sullivan of Taproom Press stopped by to talk Georgia beer, and friend of the show Brian Hewitt came by with some of the beers he grabbed on a recent trip to Oregon. </p>
