Show 73 - Porter Beer Show

Anchor Porter Indulge us. We had a lot of Porters in the Beer Studio. We had to do something with them, so we did a porter beer show!! What else would you expect from your friends at BigFoamyHead?

We recorded on an infamous date for us Memphians - the day Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, TN - which we paid our respects to.

Our music offerings continue to feature artists who will be at the Memphis In May Music Festival.

Blog and video promotions include Lisa Nova does 300, Chef Bruce Paton and Beer, Beats and Bites.

What is a green flash? A flash of brilliant green light, before the day descends into night. People who live along the coast spend their lives hoping to see one. It is also an up and coming brewing company from San Diego that has been making a splash with their Imperial IPA. Thanks to Mike for bringing back samples from his spring break family outing to the left coast.

We also bring you more Memphis in May Music Fest Artists including Eddie Floyd, George Thorogood (doing a fantastic blues song) and Gov't Mule. In our continuing efforts to expose you our listeners to art and culture, we bring you haiku from Beer Haiku Daily. Rick Lyke updates us on Stella, Miller-SAB and a new gallery opening in London - the World of Beer. We also continue to promote the Blues Foundation.

Beers we sample this show...

  • Green Flash Brewing Company Nut Brown Ale
  • Green Flash Brewing Company Extra Pale Ale
  • Green Flash Brewing Company Trippel Belgian Style Ale
