Show 101 - Big Beer Show

Okay, we don't have a theme for the beers this time, except they are all big high alcohol beverages. Several of them are Brewers reserves. Yum.

Join us for a discussion of the Big Beer, Belgians and Barleywine festival in Vail, CO. It's bockalicious©!

Music from Little Johnny Taylor, who's talkin'bout a part-time love. We're all about the monkey-love this show. Beer news regarding release parties from Avery and Boulder Beer Company and nanny-state oppression down-under.

We have a heartfelt touching moment during the show where Dick graciously accepts the «Douche of the Year» award from the fine folks over at the BN. He did not thank Jesus or his mother, but it will bring moisture to your eyes - it makes you proud to be an American. Just think - we win «Man of the Year» from Time Magazine and now this, «Douche of the Year!» We get some of the BN Army guys to comment on this momentous occassion - thanks to the guys from the Liquid Poets Homebrew Club in Ft. Collins, CO for playing along!

We announce the winner of the «Sexiest Beer Alive»... Listen in to find out who wins!!

Well, I am honored to accept the «Sexiest Beer Alive» award for Damnation, who couldn't be here to accept it itself because I just drank it. If they're listening, I'm sure everyone at Russian River Brewing is very proud. I suspect a restraining order is on it's way soon.

I'm also proud to be a member of the Douche Bag Army. I don't know what kind of special person you have to be to call other people Douche Bags, but I'm glad I'm not one of those. Maybe I'm off my rocker, but I thought the point was to campaign for better beer, and promote brewing. Perhaps I should turn my guns in another direction.

I guess it's to be expected when you've got the Howard Stern complex, and surround yourself with people who kiss your skinny ass all day, pumping up your ego. Pardon us for being creative.

Mike, John Wayne was not the gay. No way. He invented the words «bad ass». He may have been a horrible drunk. But a homo? Not in a million years. So he owned some nice clothes, big deal.

I'll chock this one up to the Big Foamy Head tagline - «It's the beer talking.»

Please take down that photo. It's blasphemous to The Duke. If he were here, he'd laugh even at the idea of Jack Bauer.

#3. Mike, 14 years and 3 months ago

Wow, the picture is pretty telling. I guess only his hairdresser knows for sure.

I loved the tribute to The BM (The Brewing Network). Dick, I guess I'm not the only one who can't get it right! Us Douche Bags need to stick together. Wait . . . that didn't sound right . . . never mind!

Another great show!

PS: I loved how Phil's comment nailed our sentiments exactly!

Great show, funny that the BN has seen fit to give such an award away and they were most deserving. Other then Jamil's corner, I never listen to their show. Oh well.

I agree with Phil, no way is the Duke gay. He may have walked like he lost something in there, but in actuality he walked like that because his bollocks were so big.

Oh, I wish Germany imported beer. I would love to try some of those that you had this ep.

Good show. The Duke is not gay. There is absolutely no way. Even if you got pictures of him on roller skates in hot pants French kissing Rock Hudson, it was just him stretching as an actor.

I just had a Unibroue 16 the other day just before starting this episode. I have to say it was a damn fine beer.

I agree with the guy whose name currently escapes me that the Black Chocolate Stout (BCS) has to be one of the best beers out there. Try making a Black and Tan with the BCS and the Dog Fish Head 90 minute IPA. You can't layer it but it is damn tasty.

Good episode, you guys were definitely hammered by the end.

Congrats on the Douche Bag award! I struggled through one 3 hour episode of Brewing Network and had to unsubscribe. They may think they invented the so-called beer podcast but its basically unlistenable in my opinion.
