It’s Spring, but Winter is officially here! What’s that you say, we’re off our rockers? We may be, but in this case we’re talking Game of Thrones. This episode we discuss a little GOT and the upcoming final season with our old pal Jason Walsh while we sip on King in the North, a barrel-aged imperial stout by Brewery Ommegang hailing from Cooperstown, NY. We also sampled some great brews straight from Raleighwood by Brewery Bhavana.Test your skills in “Name of Thrones” trivia and see if you can do better than us!
On location at Blowing Rock Draft House in Hickory, NC! We had the pleasure of sitting down with Rocky Justice, brewer at Blowing Rock Brewing Company (Blowing Rock and Hickory, NC) to talk craft beer, her start in brewing and lots more! We sampled 3 beers from this evolving North Carolina brewery: Mountain Spring Juicy Hopped Blonde Ale, Carolina Light Ale, and their latest creation Cloud Rise Hazy IPA. Join us for this very special cast from the stage in the beer garden on the lower level of historic Hollar Mill!
Back in the studio this episode, we review craft beers from both South Carolina and North Carolina: World Court Mocha Blonde Stout by Legal Remedy Brewing Company (Rock Hill, SC), War Hawk American Pale Ale by Big Boss Brewing Company (Raleigh, NC) and Free Skate IPA by Resident Culture Brewing Company (Charlotte, NC). Also… How does your favorite beer make the “Best of Show”? What about that guy who wears the jersey with someone else’s name on it? And those 80’s movies (and TV shows) we loved as kids… what do we think of them now? All this and more for your listening pleasure!
For this special episode, we trekked westward to Asheville, NC and podcasted on-location at Archetype Brewing! We welcomed Steven Anon—Co-owner and Head Brewer of Archetype—to the cast to discuss their beer, brewing process, and new location in Downtown Asheville. We sample some of their delicious beers: Nameless Light Brett IPA, Devil’s Nest Belgian-style Tripel, and their award-winning Belgian Strong Ale, as well as their latest version of Belgian Strong Ale right from the bright tank! So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Special thanks to Steven, Sally, and the rest of the Archetype crew for hosting us at their brewery!
