Show 117 - Chicken and Beer

Yum. Although no chickens were harmed in the production of this show, we did kill a few quality beers as well as do permanent liver damage. Join us as we get a live-from-the-field report from Rick about Great Taste of the Midwest and several other events. We also do a Rufus Thomas (Mister Funky Chicken) retrospective of sorts, catch up on the latest Memphis celebrity news, throw in a dash of Armenian vengeance, and have some awesome beverages! If you aren't chicken, why don't you join us?

Beers pounded down and thoroughly enjoyed this show:

  • Schmaltz Brewing Rejewvenator
  • Steamworks Imperial India Pale Ale
  • Mendocino Imperial India Pale Ale
  • Sante Fe Brewing Chicken Killer Barley Wine
  • Ricks beers from that restaurant...

Show 116 - Odds and Ends Beer Show

Yet another show where we clean out the beer cooler. Mike and Dick lean towards IPA while Rick cruises all over the place, we do a clone taste test to see how close Mike's homebrew gets to a Bells classic, and discuss merchandising opportunities for Women's Volleyball. Cool tunes by Michael Hill Blues Mob and possible satan worshipper Robert Johnson. On a serious note, we do our turn at promoting a beer-related cancer effort sponsored by our friend Rick Lyke at, the Pints for Prostates. Listen up and send your donation in. And, what do you know, Beer News returns!

Beers swallered during this show:

  • Clarkehead Brewery Black Cat Stout
  • Mikes Three-Hearted Ale
  • Bells Two-Hearted Ale
  • Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale
  • Boulder Brewery Titan IPA

Cool music by Magic Slim and a special celebration of alternative lifestyles at the end...

Show 106 - Smoked Beer Show

We get smoked up on this show. Hippie music, smoked malts, and cripple abuse. We get all shlenkerled on this show (listen and you will know what this means) and we have multiple flashbacks. Is it because of the beer or something else? You be the judge. We sample hard the offerings from the Schlekerla Brewery out of Germany. We also listen to some smoking tunes from Alvin Lee, both Ten Years After and nowadays.

Beers sampled on this show:

Schlenkerla Marzen
Schlenkerla Urbock
Schlenkerla Wheat

HACKED. But not that bad.

On the one hand, we were hacked a little bit by Russian pornographers. Screwed up a few messages, but not much else. On the other hand, it caused us to finally clean up all the crap we've been putting off and upgrade to a (hopefully) more secure system.

Oh, and it killed comments and all the pages of articles (our BEER LIST!) for a little while. No worries, they're coming back. In the meantime, thanks for listening!
