Show 76 - Belgium Ale Beer Show

Trophy Mo' good times from the guys at BigFoamyHead! We're fresh off of our first barbeque competition - The Southaven Springfest BBQ. The team we were on, B3 (beer, blues and bbq), took third place in the shoulder competition for the division we were in. Hey, thats a pretty good accomplishment for a new team using a borrowed smoker. Enough to make us downright giddy.

We have a full beer studio for this show. We're joined by our neighbor Claire, who has a lovely British accent. It's very nice on the ears. Of course it's also a good excuse for us to be juvenile!

Photo bucket pictures - The Test Cook and Competition Cook.

More promotion of the MIM Music Fest, which has come and gone. Lots of music from our featured artist, Popa Chubby and we close out with some Iggy Pop.

We do a listener contributed Beer Haiku to add a bit of class and culture to your lives.

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Brewery Ommegang Abbey Ale
  • Delirium Noel
  • Victory Twelve

Show 75 - Diamond Bear Beer Show

Diamond Bear Logo We're lucky enough to have a great selection of beers from a «local to us» brewery just 2 hours 38 minutes away in Little Rock, AR.

The Mary Carol Winkler verdict is in - manslaughter. Watch out guys - hide the shotgun!

Rick realizes that Irish Red's can be excellent when done right.

The music includes lots of Lynard Skynard covers from some of our favorite artists.

We do a beer haiku followed by rambling conversation about movies and presidents.

Remember to telepathically enter your questions for the BBQ&A.

Sorry guys - no news segment again. We've been recording at off times due to all the activities going on this time of year. We'll do our best to hookup with Rick Lyke again soon.

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Diamond Bear Pale Ale
  • Diamond Bear Irish Red
  • Diamond Bear Summer Blonde
  • Diamond Bear Honey Weiss
  • Diamond Bear Presidential IPA

Be entertained by the Diamond Bear here.

Show 74 - Founders Brewing Company Beer

Founders Logo We get a hookup from our friends at The Beer Report and get to sample one of the best bourbon breakfast stouts in the country from Founders Brewing Company. Michigan has one heck of a beer scene going on and we at Big Foamy Head are duly impressed with the offerings from the brewery we feature on this show - Founders!

Join us as we discuss planning for a big barbecue (test cook and competition), music from the upcoming Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival, and of course, beer. Hey, it's what we're all about, «Beer, Blues, and BBQ.» We love it. We live it.

We fall off the wagon and get into the current controversy swirling around the nappy-headed-honky-cracker-white-boy Imus. We usually avoid the political discussions, but when it comes to issues of freedom of speech, we are directly affected and have strong opinions on the topic.

We joke about reviving a segment that we started over a year ago - reach out and touch a podcaster. Our first reach out was to Groucho at the Beer Report, so what better way to renew the segment then to drunk dial Groucho again!

Beers we sampled this show...

  • Founders Dirty Bastard
  • Founders Black Rye
  • Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout

One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer... here (but hold the Scotch).
