Show 75 - Diamond Bear Beer Show

Diamond Bear Logo We're lucky enough to have a great selection of beers from a «local to us» brewery just 2 hours 38 minutes away in Little Rock, AR.

The Mary Carol Winkler verdict is in - manslaughter. Watch out guys - hide the shotgun!

Rick realizes that Irish Red's can be excellent when done right.

The music includes lots of Lynard Skynard covers from some of our favorite artists.

We do a beer haiku followed by rambling conversation about movies and presidents.

Remember to telepathically enter your questions for the BBQ&A.

Sorry guys - no news segment again. We've been recording at off times due to all the activities going on this time of year. We'll do our best to hookup with Rick Lyke again soon.


Beers we sampled this show...

  • Diamond Bear Pale Ale
  • Diamond Bear Irish Red
  • Diamond Bear Summer Blonde
  • Diamond Bear Honey Weiss
  • Diamond Bear Presidential IPA

Be entertained by the Diamond Bear here.

Show 74 - Founders Brewing Company Beer

Founders Logo We get a hookup from our friends at The Beer Report and get to sample one of the best bourbon breakfast stouts in the country from Founders Brewing Company. Michigan has one heck of a beer scene going on and we at Big Foamy Head are duly impressed with the offerings from the brewery we feature on this show - Founders!

Join us as we discuss planning for a big barbecue (test cook and competition), music from the upcoming Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival, and of course, beer. Hey, it's what we're all about, «Beer, Blues, and BBQ.» We love it. We live it.

We fall off the wagon and get into the current controversy swirling around the nappy-headed-honky-cracker-white-boy Imus. We usually avoid the political discussions, but when it comes to issues of freedom of speech, we are directly affected and have strong opinions on the topic.

We joke about reviving a segment that we started over a year ago - reach out and touch a podcaster. Our first reach out was to Groucho at the Beer Report, so what better way to renew the segment then to drunk dial Groucho again!

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Founders Dirty Bastard
  • Founders Black Rye
  • Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout

One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer... here (but hold the Scotch).

Show 64 - Lost Abbey Show Redux, part 1

What? iTunes screwed up something? Impossible, you say? Well, it's true. We had part 1 and 2 of the Lost Abbey beer show in one post, but that apparently doesn't make nice with Apple. And since you've already had part 2 thrust upon you, here's part 1 posted afterward. Enjoy!

We lost the abbey but found the show, at least part 1 that you can download here.

Show 64 - Lost Abbey Beer Show pt2

We found the Lost Abbey and the Belgian style beers are quite exceptional! Join us as we give plugs and shoutouts to a boatload of people and podcasts, pimp some worthy causes, and explore three fantastic beers from the San Diego area. We also have an interview with the owner of the best beer bar in the land, the Liars Club. Or is it the best? We want to hear from you. We preview a new beer from New Belgium as well, called Springboard, a seasonal offering. Also on tap is our first ever contest to win an extremely rare and valuable prize (hint: you have to watch the video below to win). We get on a tear about youtube and other new media, have some great news (have you heard about Bilk?) and play some cool blues and punk tunes. We got so carried away with this show we have to give it to you in two parts...

Show 63 - Brew Crazy Beer Show

We welcome Johnny Max (BrewCrazy Brewcast) to the show and enjoy some of his award winning homebrews including the infamous Cause of Death. It's an all-grain 21% ABV beverage that they said «couldn't be done.» You read about it in Brew Your Own magazine, now hear how it was done straight from the brewer himself.

Add some beer news with Rick Lyke (http://lyke2drink.blogspot.com), an interview with the fine folks from O'Fallon Brewery, and of course - some great blues music with a twist of gospel and you have the recipe for a fun evening Big Foamy Head style!

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Cause of Death
  • Heffeweisen
  • Old Ale
  • St Arnolds Christmas Ale Clone
  • Poblano Chili

This show may not be your cause of death, but you won't know until you click here!

The video experiments continue. We try out Adobe Premiere Elements for some cool effects.

Show 61 - Metal Beers

Paraphrasing Marsellus from the cult classic «Pulp Fiction» - We're gonna get medieval on you!

What now? Let me tell you what now. I'ma call a coupla hard, pipe-hittin' deleted, who'll go to work on the holmes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. You hear me talkin', hillbilly boy? I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'ma get medieval on your ass.

We get medieval with our beers and metal with our music... well metal from our perspective!! Probably mild on the metal scale of metalness. Enjoy some great tunes and release your hidden Viking desires to maruad distant lands! We include a news segment from Rick Lyke and a new pre-show video on YouTube!

  • SkullSplitter Orkney Ale (8.5% ABV)

Show 59 - O' Fallon Beer Show

We kick off the new year with some fantastic beers from the O'Fallon Brewery of O'Fallon, Missouri. These guys create some wild flavors with great results. We sample six of their brews PLUS we reveal a stealth beer from one of the giant corporate brewers (hint: their initials are AB) and put it head to head against it's competitor to see who is the King of Stouts. On the news front, we debut our new snazzy intro and Rick Lyke from lyke2drink.blogspot.com brings us more news from AB, Flying Dog and the latest on the Iron City drama. We salute the passing of James Brown and give you lots of homebrew updates and info, while cooking up some Bambi at the same time. And we welcome a new little foamy head by the name of Olivia. Round it out with some great blues from Curtis Salgado and Duke Robilliard and you've got a show. Hard to believe we kept it under an hour!

BeerWe are two for two with a second show featuring fantastic Belgian-style beers! Allagash Brewery delivers the goods, and we warm up with a 400 year old recipe for Wassail, which is basically hot beer with liquor added. Yum. Also on tap is some original Memphis Music from BlueJazz, reports from the field from Rick Lyke with devastating NASCAR news, and animal stories galore. Susan joins us again, and we give an update on the topless club and manatee situation in Memphotown. Great beers and a great sendoff to Christmas.
