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 92 - Road Trip Beer Show

Rick is on the road to points northwest, and Dick, Mike and Martin talk about beers brought back from the road, New Orleans specifically. We also get into a deep discussion about Tina Louise, and whether she's dead or not. Add to the mix some quality beer news and how the big beer world is going straight to hell in a handbasket. Lots of great music and great beers, so 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?)

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!
