There is a new style brewing out there these days - Cascadian Dark Ale or Black IPA. It's big. It's dark. It's proud.

If you're at work - kill the audio when the exit song starts. It's not completely appropriate, but then again, it's not completely inappropriate either.

Dick starts his multipart report on Chess Records - Chicagos answer to STAX and SUN. Great blues history.

  • Alaskan Brewing Company - Double Black IPA
  • 21st Amendment - Back In Black

Show 150 - The Highway 61 Beer Show

icon for podpress  The Highway 61 Beer Show [63:49m]: Play Now | Play in Popup | Download

150 Shows over 5 years... Woot! Confetti! Okay on to the show content.

In Memoriam:

  • Dragonmead - Final Absolution Belgian Style Trippel Ale
  • Rogue Ales - John John Juniper
  • Avery/Russian River Brewing Company - Collaboration Not Litigation Ale
  • Short's Brewing Company - Huma-Lupa-Liscious IPA

Liberally borrowing from Wikipedia, the source from which all knowledge flows - Highway 61 is often called "The Blues Highway," because of the course it takes from Minnesota, through Memphis, Tennessee, and into Louisiana (primarily New Orleans). The junction of Highway 61 and Highway 49 in Clarksdale is designated as the famous crossroads where, according to legend, Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for mastery of the blues. A 30-mile (48 km) section of Highway 61 between Clarksdale and Tunica is the longest segment of highway in the world with no horizontal or vertical curves. It was on this stretch of highway that blues singer Bessie Smith died in a car accident on September 26, 1937.

American music producer John Hammond was apparently a rat bastard but he had a great ear for talent - for example Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

  • Big Foamy Head iApp and Twitter feeds are all the rage.
  • KROC World Brewers Forum at the Great American Beer Festival. Stop by the Marriot on Thursday night at the GABF. Grab a pint of Epiphany Brewings "Bitter American"
  • Beer Bloggers Conference in Boulder November 5th - 7th.

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"
