Big Foamy Head: Big Foamy Head
By admin, 10 years and 11 months ago

Show 95 - Blues Beer Show

Welcome to a special Big Foamy Head show. We take a trip to downtown Memphis to see one of the legends of blues and the chitlin circuit, Bobby Rush. He put on a show in a very tiny venue. Too bad for him, that made it easy for us to get at him. Enjoy some real down home blues and the closest thing to Memphis you're going to get unless you get off your ass and come visit us.

Beers sampled this show:
Dogfish Head Immort Ale (leftover)
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (bar beer)
And assorted other bar goods.

Show 93 - Beer Scavenger Hunt

We play a game in this episode called Beer Scavenger Hunt. Simple rules, go find a beer made of beer. Duh. We do come back with some nice beers and some nice tunes from Joe Bonamassa, Allman Bros. and more. We take a turn for the educational, much to Martin's dismay, and discuss the burning question: what is a Jelly Roll? Beer Haiku, Beer News and a new segment called Errata and Corrections! Listen up...

Show 91 - Fall Beer Surprise

We clean out the refrigerators once again, sampling some beers from recent trips to Denver, California and elsewhere. We kick off the show with a review of a commercial offering from AB, and believe it or not we don't kill it. Martin joins the ranks of home brewers in a most economical way, and we get back to our roots of beer, blues and barbecue with some cool tunes from Otis Spann and others. And Beer News returns!

Featured beers on this show:
Michelob Marzen (what are we thinking?)
Telemark IPA

Show 90 - Demons of Ale Show

We kick the alcohol level up a few notches with these high octane beers from Avery Brewing Co. The featured beers in this show are all named after the Devil, and cover three hellishly good, but distinct, styles: Grand Cru, Oaked Ale and Imperial Stout. We also do the absolutely worst telling of a ghost story you have ever heard. This and some post-Halloween music make this a damned fine show.

Show 89 - Dinner with the Brett Pack

This is our entry into the mass of GABF shows that have been out lately, but with a twist. We had a special dinner with some of the top brewers at a restaurant in Boulder the night before the Great American Beer Festival. We spent quality time with Sam Calagione from Dogfish Head, Rob Todd from Allagash, and Adam Avery from Avery Brewing and enjoyed a fantastic menu pairing their beers and some from Russian River and Port Brewing with a variety of foods. A great night and we are glad to share it with you. Enjoy!

Show 88 - Stone and Lagunitas Show

Things go downhill rapidly in this installment of Big Foamy Head despite Christy participating. Travel beers from my recent outing to Los Angeles and Denver are whats on tap tonight - Stone XI Anniversary Ale and Stone Vertical Epic 070707. Plus we indulge in a special release from Lagunitas Brewing, Kill Ugly Radio. And there is a lot of bitching about the beers we DID NOT get to drink because of airport inspection nazis who confiscated the beer. Pirate haiku, GABF preparations and more. Take a listen!

Show 87 - Confused Jew Show

Continuing down the Belgian path, but we get off course and wind up in Jerusaleum by way of New York. Ponder on that while you listen to this show that covers the special nuances of great beers from New Belgium, Chimay, Achouffe, Unibroue and Schmaltz. We also talk about a new cultural phenomenon I completely missed - the game of cornhole. What? Rick shares some Beer Haiku from our friend Captain Hops at beerhaikudaily.com, and some great tunes from Jimmy Thackery, Lonnie Brooks and our old friend Joe Galea with his new CD. Le'chayim!
