Audio Extra - James Brown Farewell

The Big Foamy Head entourage made a pilgrimage this past May to see the legends of blues, soul and rock and roll - Jerry Lee Lewis, Booker T and the MGs, B.B. King and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. JB was the last one we expected to leave us, but leave us he did on Christmas this year. Open that special beer you've been saving and join us for a half hour farewell to a true pioneer in the music business and the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, James Brown.

Show 58 - Allagash Beer Show

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.

Show 57 - Brewery Ommegang Belgian Beer

Brewery Ommegang LogoFrom Cooperstown, NY, the Home of Baseball comes Brewery Ommegang - «where brewing is an art and partaking is a passion!» Each of these beers were a treat.

Okay, we ran really long on this show. We are sorry. And we apologize. You can skip the songs if you're so inclined, but you'll be doing yourself a disservice - the music is excellent this go around.

What do Fritos and Chili, Running, and Algae Bioranches have in common? Not much. Does that stop us from talking about them? Heck no!

Show 56 - Avery Brewing Company

Avery Brewing Company LogoBe warned: There is heavy breathing on this show. Maybe its because of the fantastic Avery beer, maybe its because of the new mics, but it is there in full force. Tom Mascari joins us as we take a tour of the nectar produced by Avery Brewing Company. We lead off with Iggy Pop, noted blues artist, and provide yet another musical moment in history. Big Foamy Head - drink beer, learn stuff. What a concept!

Show 55 - New Holland Brewing Company

New Holland Brewing Company Logo You've been hearing a lot about New Holland Brewing Company recently - for good reason! They have some exceptional beers. Many thanks to Fred Bueltmann, Vice President of Sales and Marketing New Holland Brewing Company, for helping us to do a show featuring these beers!

On other topics, we do some name dropping... specifically a send up to the Dudes at Dude Night for their Big Foamy Homebrew Show and the effects of dry rub. A discussion of Graham Sanders of Craft Brewer Radio from the land down under. We talk about «the Floyd» and the making of the Dark Side of the Moon as recommended from BuBBy in the TikiBarTV chat room. And we give special thanks to James Spencer of Basic Brewing Radio for a recent care package he sent.

Yada yada. Okay, really, we get a little goofy and poke fun at ourselves. Our knowledge of history and geography will astound you... or cause you dismay.

Beers we sampled during this show...

  • New Holland Blue Goat Dopplebock
  • New Holland Black Tulip Trippel Ale
  • New Holland Dragons Milk Ale

Tip toe through the tulips and give'r a listen here!

Errata on the Errata:
- Daniel Day Lewis' character in The Last of the Mohicans was Hawkeye (Nathaniel Poe).
- Nigel Powers: All right Goldmember. Don't play the laughing boy. There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

Show 53 - Great Pumpkin Beer Show

We are joined by the Beer Wives on this show to review a medley of Pumpkin Beers. Since it is that time of the year, specialty beers are popping up and we are not afraid to try them. Music today is LIVE blues (not necessarily live people, but live music) since thats the way to really listen to it. Performers are Albert King, Black Crowes and Barbecue Bob (the real dead one). Audio on this show is a bit weird so try not to get uncomfortable with mouth-breathing noises... We also discovered that getting the beer wives settled down to do a show is sort of like herding cats.

Show 52 - Bayhawk Ales Beer Show


Join us as we talk about The Pilsner Room - a great pub in Irvine, CA that is home to the Bayhawk Ales brewery. It might be the greatest beer you never knew you drank! Many thanks go to Chris Wright, the brewer who was decent enough to tolerate Rick watching him brew!

The music samplings start to explore the rock-a-billy sound that was born in Memphis - Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and others. We also discuss the founder of «metal» - Link Wray and the song Rumble - which you might recognize as the fight scene song from the 80's classic movie - Streets of Fire. (confirmed!)

Clarkes Manatee Pic!

We ponder the big questions in life, such as where did the Manatee go and can you find lederhosen in Memphis? Memphis had a moment of national fame - a manatee on a bender who wandered up the «big muddy» to find itself in the harbor at Mud Island.

Show snacks - jalapeƱo chips.



Bayhawk Ale beers we sampled during this show...

  • Bayhawk Ales Honey Blonde
  • Bayhawk Ales Amber Ale
  • Bayhawk Ales Chocolate Porter
