Show 160 - Beer Death March

headacheIn which we find our heroes recovering after slaying the mighty GABF. Basically, we're all beat down by the waves of amazing beer we poured down our beerholes over a 5 day period. And it shows in the thumps and bumps and gravelly voices in this podcast. All you cheap bastards can enjoy the sensation of being at GABF as we regale you tales from the faraway, mystical land of Denver. Musical stylings by the Talking Heads (Psycho Killer), Richard Thompson (Dad's Gonna Kill Me) and the Black Keys (Lies). Prost!

Hang out with the Hungover and bathe in our afterglow.

monroebeerWe couldn't let a whole year go by without a show. We managed to get everyone together for a round or two of beers in front of recording devices, and this is what you get.
We had a wide range of beers on this show - from Belgians to Hop Bombs, and relived some moments from Memphis in May, along with a new friend or two. Through in some good music and you've got yourself another BFH Show.
Scratch that itch with this testament to hops and barley.

beer_104074In celebration of National IPA Day, we present a tutorial on the nuances of hops and IPAs for our hop-challenged friends. Actually, we just drink some great beers and babble on endlessly about Vince Gill, beer festivals, hot chicken, t-shirts, and beertards.
We kick it off with a Great Divide 18th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA. Oh yes we did. Sacrifical Beer Virgin Clark weighs in with his insightful comments on it («its good»), we have a short-fill beer and a meh beer, and we have a three-way with John Hiatt, Joe Bonamassa, and Vince Gill. Wait, that didn't come out right...

Listen up to this hop-soaked show and judge for yourself.

dsc_8417-480x318We drink a brett beer that may or may not be half assed. Depends on what you are looking for and whether you are all about the Styles. We're talking about the collaboration between New Belgium and Lost Abbey called Brett Beer that takes a beating on the beer boards. We give you the straight poop on whether its poop or not. Segue to a discussion of the Arc Angels, a great Texas rock group you may never have heard of, and a hint about earlier musical collaborations. We catch up on the latest beer events around towns including bicycle beers and drunk running.
We bring Ziggy Stardust back up with a special, rarely heard recording of a tour rehearsal featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn. Right before he quit the... collaboration. See a pattern here?
And here is the link to that amazing session with Stevie Ray Vaughn and David Bowie in Dallas
Then we get a little darker with some old homebrew Rick found in the back of the fridge from our friends at The Beer Report.
And then we tie up YET ANOTHER COLLABORATION! Listen up kiddies, its good stuff.

gbow1There has always been a special place in our hearts for the big beer, and the barleywine of course. Join us for some big fine beers from Sam Adams (yes, those guys) Imperial Series. One is a homerun, the other a swing and a miss. We also indulge in a little Hebrew number from Schmaltz, Jewbelation 15. And we pontificate about two new breweries, Texas Big Beer and Elevation Brewery and their journey to success. A couple of cool tunes and cool brews and you have a Big Foamy Head show.

Listen up and rise to the occasion.

deviantdalesIt took a beer this good to drag our asses out of retirement and produce a NSFW show. Join us as we sample Deviant Dale, an imperial version of Dale's Pale Ale. Oskar Blues hit a home run with this one. It's an 8% tallboy can that will leave you smiling. Great nose, great taste, and an extra large serving. Modus Hoperandi from Ska Brewing makes an appearance as well and Rick elaborates. On the other hand, we have a drain pour beer called Ass Kisser Double IPA on this show as well. Truly disgusting, and we call it that way. Musical entertainment this show features a trip down the psycobilly highway with some rocking music from SuperSuckers and Nashville Pussy. That's their name, don't wear it out. We also offer a feeble excuse on why we haven't produced shows for a year. Will this be a last gasp? Or will we resurrect ourselves? Listen up and let us know what you think.

BigFoamyHead continues to focus on startup breweries - our fourth interview from the Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywine festival is with Grimm Brothers Brewhouse - established in 2010 in Loveland. I've been wanting to interview these guys for a long time. I have been following Aaron's progress setting up this business with quite a bit of envy - and he's one of the nicest people I know. There's some great advice in here - namely if you want to do this, just do it!
