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!

Music samplings

  • Jonny Lang and Luther Allison - "Cherry Red Wine"
  • Coco Montoya - "Monkey See, Monkey Do"
  • Warrant - "Cherry Pie"

Show 79 - Another Damn Belgian Beer Show

It is not that we don't love a good Belgian Beer. It just seems like we are always drinking them. But that is not such a bad thing, is it? We dive into some left-of-center Belgians, courtesy of Kenny, Friend of Show, as we recover from our gigantic neighborhood barbecue that we catered. We crank up the bluesometer with some guitar-driven blues from Tommy Castro, our buddy George Thorogood, and Tinsley Ellis with a song about monkeys that leads to some life observations - sort of. And, sadly, we make an announcement about Rick's new field position. Could this be a good thing in disguise? Will Rick discover new beers in the wilderness of Colorado? Or will things go to hell in a handbasket resulting in Rick turning to a life of panhandling and dancing a spastic little jig in front of tourists for quarters - again. Tune in and find out!

Brother Thelonius from North Coast Brewing
Trois Pistoles from Unibroue
Abbey Brown Ale from Corsendunk
And lots of Jack Daniels

Show 76 - Belgium Ale Beer Show

Trophy Mo' good times from the guys at BigFoamyHead! We're fresh off of our first barbeque competition - The Southaven Springfest BBQ. The team we were on, B3 (beer, blues and bbq), took third place in the shoulder competition for the division we were in. Hey, thats a pretty good accomplishment for a new team using a borrowed smoker. Enough to make us downright giddy.

We have a full beer studio for this show. We're joined by our neighbor Claire, who has a lovely British accent. It's very nice on the ears. Of course it's also a good excuse for us to be juvenile!

Photo bucket pictures - The Test Cook and Competition Cook.

More promotion of the MIM Music Fest, which has come and gone. Lots of music from our featured artist, Popa Chubby and we close out with some Iggy Pop.

We do a listener contributed Beer Haiku to add a bit of class and culture to your lives.

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Brewery Ommegang Abbey Ale
  • Delirium Noel
  • Victory Twelve
