The blues world lost one of its greats this past June, Koko Taylor. She was born in Shelby County, just outside of Memphis, eighty years ago, and spent the majority of that time on earth singing the blues in a distinctive style. She inspired many artists, male and female alike, and received countless awards. Take a little time and get to know Koko if you don't know her, and celebrate her life and legacy if you do.

In Memoriam:

  • Homebrew Milk Stout
  • Brew Dog RipTide Stout
  • Brew Dog Punk IPA
  • Brew Dog Storm IPA

Remember the Chris Farley Show interviews on Saturday Night Live? Remember those? Those were awesome. Remember when we interviewed James Watt at the GABF World Brewers Forum? Remember that? That was awesome.

We are reliving that moment by enjoying some awesome Brew Dog beers. Dick and Mike warm up with a home Brewed Milk Stout then get swept away by a RipTide twisted merciless stout. Rick starts with a bomber of Punk IPA, a post modern classic pale ale, then is caught in a Storm - a very unique Islay Whisky Cask Aged IPA.

Add some music from Tommy Castro, a tax related Beer Haiku and you have an episode of BigFoamyHead.
