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).

Mmmm, pork cracklins. One of my favorite guilty pleasures - ChicharrĂ³ns. Nothing better than some deep fried pig skin.

Thanks for your take on the whole Imus thing. It really does affect us, because it affects free speech. Without it, we're not even here. But everyone needs to be careful when it comes to race issues. They are ugly words, and there's no room for it anywhere.

Great to hear Sir Groucho on your show. He was a bit too coherent for my taste. Someone get that man a beer.

Hey, this is off-topic, but are you guys hearing much about this?

And now, a Clarkehead Haiku:

Something was missing
from your latest episode.
Some beer news next time?
