Show 110 - The Spare Beer Show

You might think, to paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld, that «this is a show about nothing.» 

Au Contraire mon cheri - this show is about the things we love - beer, blues and BBQ!  I know, you are stunned.  It's our «wrap up» show from the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival '08.   Dick and Rick sitting around by the lake on a warm Monday afternoon cleaning out the beer fridge «spares», cooking some BBQ chicken. listening to tunes and shooting the breeze.  Self serving and gratuitous? You betcha.  So?  Music samplings from Backdoor Slam, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carl Simms and Hot Monkey Love.  In the words of Ace Ventura, pet detective... «Alrighty then!» - let's get to it!

Beers we sampled:

  • Full Sail Vesuvius (8.5%)
  • Bison Reunion '08 Organic Red Rye Ale (6.5%)
  • Dogfish Head Chateau Jiahu (9%)
  • Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier (4.3%)
  • Asahi Sparks Energy Drink (7%)
  • Avery Brewing Company 2008 Samael (15.53%)
  • Aktienbrauerei Kaufbeuren Buronator Doppelbock (7.5%)
  • Oskar Blues Old CHUB Scottish Style Ale (8%)

Thanks Zaccman! We appreciate you too. And I'm not just saying that because you are the Chief of the Beer Tribe! Rick

Dick, sorry to hear that you got sick, but I'm glad you were able to recover and get back on your feet. Cancer is a scary cruel bastard, but you're too tough for it.

Sounds like you guys had a hella good time at MIM. Sorry I couldn't join you guys this year. Great story about Alan. I love that you guys finished eating first, then drive to get him. :-) You guys were lucky the cops were being cool. You guys were legal to drive when you came to find him weren't you?

And thanks for playing some Stevie Ray Vaughan. Of all the blues guitarists, he's high on my list of guitarists in general. Sad that he was taken from us so quickly.

By the end of this thing, you guys sounded torched - and believe me, that's a good thing. 😀 Old CHUB is the absolute shiznit. I love that stuff, and only wish I could get it here. The store that I go to get my show beers is stocking the Pale Ale right now, but I'm holding out for the Chubbie. When he starts stocking that, I'm buying him out.

Christy was driving and she was absolutely sober. Trust me, the C'ville cops are the exact opposite from «cool» - they love screwing with the citizenry. Rick

Hey, it's your blog. It's OK to say the cops are dicks.
