Once in a blue moon! Dick, Rick and Mike are joined by Chris to discuss... well, life in general, beer in specific. We try Blue Moons Grand Cru.

Discussions include Magic Dick, Kevin Bacon who is not the most linked actor, the Big Beers Belgians and Barleywine festival, skiing and banks. Somehow, we tie it all together.

Show 130 - High Octane Beer

In Memoriam:

  • Homebrew Maibock
  • Unibroue La Terrible
  • Dogfish Head 120
  • Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
  • Alaskan Brewing Company 2007 Smoked Porter

This show is soooooo epic ("how epic is it?") - it took two days to record. Dick, Mike and John start off discussing a few preshow beverages - Mikes Homebrewed Maibock and a Unibroue La Terrible at 10.5%.

The first beer is one of the most intense beers brewed today - the Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA at 18%-20% ABV! This bitter sweet beverage has a long history with us at!

The second segment starts with a Dogfish Head World Wide Stout at 18%. At this point the high octane takes it's toll on your intrepid podcasters and the third segment was lost. Play a dirge for the lost audio... actually, it's usually better when we lose these later segments.

Rick recovers from his hangover and joins live in the "new and improved" third segment. Where we enjoy another classic - the 2007 Alaskan Smoked Porter. Preshow beers include Boulder Brewing Company's Hazed and Infused, Mikes Dry Stout homebrew and a Clarkehead Black Cat Stout.

Conversation topics range from lawsuits (Rick Pitino, Louisville Basketball) to the Hamdemic - the swine flu hits the midsouth!

Music by Albert Cummins, Lord T and Eloise.

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.

Show 128 - Back to Beer Show

Back to beer. We start this show with Avery Brewing Companies Brabant. A very nice sour ale aged in Mephistopheles Wine Barrels from Norman Vineyards. It's Avery's first barrel aged beer in what will hopefully be a long line of beers to come.

Then we follow up with some nice German beers - Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel, Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock and Schwanenbrau Das Schwarze. Mike cracks open a homebrewed Three Hearted Ale (Northern Brewer kit), followed by a Sam Adams Imperial Wit.

Music by the late Willie King, Alabama blues man.

Class and culture includes a book review of The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx and Beer Haiku.

Show 125 - Mikkeller Beer Show

We get to sample some really great beers this show from a very talented Danish Brewer.  Mikkel Borg Bjergsø is running Mikkeller as a one man operation. Mikkel is a «gipsy-brewer» - he rents into breweries, brewing in Denmark, around Europe and the United States.

We also recorded the Christmas Beer Tasting from the KROC annual party.  Scott Jackson did a great job presenting the beers - post here.

Dave Browns pictures from a German Brewery - post here.

Beers we sampled this show...

- Jackie Brown
- Struise Mikkeller (Elliot Brew)
- All Others Pale Ale
- Stateside IPA
- Big Worse Barleywine
- Some anonymous mead we're pretty sure was Mikes Purple Panty Dropper.

Music by James Hunter, The White Stripes and many other samples in the beer-music pairings.

Technical difficulties and issues abound in this offbeat disjointed venture to Denmark, but by the power of editing out huge chunks and several redo's we pulled it off!

Tongue tied and addled audio is here.
