In Memoriam:

  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Lavagulin Whisky Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Calvados Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Sherry Cask
  • J.W. Lees Harvest Ale aged in Port Cask

What could be better than a great beer? A great beer aged in a Scotch Whisky cask. Or maybe Calvados, or Port, or Sherry - or all of them! We get our cask on with this show and try the same barleywine four different ways. J.W. Lee takes the art of cask beer to a new level.
And speaking of art, its a double dose of class and culture with the ever popular Beer Haiku and a presentation on How to be a Blues Singer. Add in some tunes from Joe Bonamassa, piss off the Dutch, rag on more dead celebrities (including one Mike didn't know was dead) and you have another Big Foamy Head show. And how about pimping that 4 year anniversary and Facebook page? You better listen, cause we know where you live...

Aging this show wont help, so listen up now.

The blues world lost one of its greats this past June, Koko Taylor. She was born in Shelby County, just outside of Memphis, eighty years ago, and spent the majority of that time on earth singing the blues in a distinctive style. She inspired many artists, male and female alike, and received countless awards. Take a little time and get to know Koko if you don't know her, and celebrate her life and legacy if you do.
