I Feel Good - James Brown

In Memoriam:

  • O'Dells Woodcut #3
  • Avery Black Tot
  • Avery Depuceleuse

The Gathering. "What means this?" you ask. No - it's not a pagan ritual or some Highlander derivative. No obscure symbols drawn in a circle or use of broad swords. It's the 3 annual gathering on MIMBSMF eve (Memphis In May Beale Street Music Festival.) It could also be for the gathering storm as the first weekend in May seems to be when the heavens open up and turn Tom Lee Park into a mudpit. It's all good.

Things got a little raucus with Alan and Cary joining us in the beer studio. This is a fun and entertaining show!

In Memoriam:

  • Founders Dirty Bastard
  • Founders Breakfast Stout

This show was recorded after a very long day exploring Boulder, a day that started off poorly (travel and work woes) but got progressively better after a stop at Southern Sun to sample their offerings for Stout Month, followed by an homage to Avery Brewing. Then our designated driver took us for a quick drive out to Longmont for dinner at Oskar Blues Liquids and Solids.

Show topics included the Olympics - figure skater Evan Lysacek, womens alpine skier Lindsey Vonn photos, luge, double luge, skeleton and a few other wandering thoughts. We also throw in a dose of Beer Haiku (courtesy of

Show 134 - J.W. Lees Harvest Ale

In Memoriam:

  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Lavagulin Whisky Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Calvados Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Sherry Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Port Cask

What could be better than a great beer? A great beer aged in a Scotch Whisky cask. Or maybe Calvados, or Port, or Sherry - or all of them! We get our cask on with this show and try the same barleywine four different ways. J.W. Lee takes the art of cask beer to a new level.
And speaking of art, its a double dose of class and culture with the ever popular Beer Haiku and a presentation on How to be a Blues Singer. Add in some tunes from Joe Bonamassa, piss off the Dutch, rag on more dead celebrities (including one Mike didn't know was dead) and you have another Big Foamy Head show. And how about pimping that 4 year anniversary and Facebook page? You better listen, cause we know where you live...

Aging this show wont help, so listen up now.
