Ep. 65: Happy Trails

HEY, HEY, HEY—Guess who’s back! The legendary Hootie Bowman is back on the mic and coming through in the clutch since Luke was unable to make this episode. And wouldn’t you know it, our substitute host is bringing his humor and charm as usual, despite not bringing any beers. Wait… is that even something we could ever let happen? Good thing Josh and Matt came through in the clutch as well, bringing craft beers from North and South Carolina: Peacemaker Juicy IPA from Lonerider Brewing (Raleigh, NC), Perch Strawberry Rhubarb Gose-Style Ale from Birds Fly South Ale Project (Greenville, SC) and Global Happiness Coffee Brown Ale from Heist Brewery (Charlotte, NC). Luke actually provided the Coffee beer, so we won’t tell him we drank it all if you won’t.

Think you know the history of a Gose beer? Matt drops some knowledge about gose-style beers, perhaps with a bit of B.S. added for good measure. And what professional sports personality would you bring to a fight? All this and more in this special episode!

Ep. 64: Candace

Candace beer get in our belly? Why yes, yes it can indeed. Straight outta H-town, we’re bringing it NKOTB style. Well, Luke is anyway, reflecting on his first ever big-boy concert. And, announcing like ahhh… an announcer? That’s right, we can’t get enough of the baseball calls and lingo. And oh, that Bobby Brown. We sip on craft beers such as Homestyle IPA from Bearded Iris Brewing (Nashville, TN) and Double Ice Cream Paint Job, a smoothie-style sour from Divine Barrel Brewing (Charlotte, NC). We also take a “water break” to enjoy a couple non-alcoholic craft-brewed hop tea seltzers from Hoplark (Boulder, CO). Lots of laughs in this one! Candace episode fit in your earhole? It better, or  you’re out—and that’s the ball game.

Ep. 63: Killshot

WE’RE BAAAAAAAACK! After a 3-month hiatus, we’re back on the mics and making the most of it. We toast with two excellent craft beers from our glorious state of North Carolina: Vimana Kölsch from Flying Machine Brewing Company (Wilmington, NC) and Global Hawk Schwarzbier from Resident Culture (Charlotte, NC) in collaboration with Horus Aged Ales (Oceanside, CA).

So grab your jai-alai scoop thingy and your badminton shuttlecock, and enjoy the ride. Cheers—and may the Schwarz be with you!

Ep. 62: A 3BD Christmas Number Three!

NERD ALERT! It’s a tradition like no other. And to keep our little Christmas tradition going, we welcome Mike “Chigger” Willard back to the podcast for another ugly sweater party! Chigger shared three delicious craft beers from Liquid Roots Brewing Project, just up the road in L.A. (For all you out-of-nc listeners, that’s the Lenoir Area of North Carolina!) The Liquid Roots brews we feature on this episode include Malfoy Blonde Ale, Ogre Nerd Saison and I Like to Play Hazy DIPA.

Get out your jingle bells and join us as we take it back—waaaaay back—to epic days of Christmas past and those long forgotten traditions, headless toys, and even those cute little California Raisins. Ho, ho, holiday cheers for everyone!

Ep. 61: The Amazing Tales of Gaspar and Moonbeam

Good night, sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs… Wait, what?!? Tune into our latest episode to hear the harrowing tales of unforgettable hippies, mullets and parasites. You also might learn a thing or two about crypto currencies and that thing they are calling the “Metaverse”.

Oh yeah, and some nice beers featured on this one! How about Contrition Pilsner by Burial Beer Co. (Asheville, NC). And from the other side of the state, a Double IPA with Apricots and Peaches called Macon Waves by Crystal Coast Brewing (Atlantic Beach, NC)

Ready to go balls deep? Listen to this episode now!

Ep. 60: Deuce

The long awaited episode “drop” is here… hey, hey, hey, heeeeeeee’s baaaaack! We welcome back our special guest Hootie Bowman for a record 4th episode. And if you think you’ve heard his stories, well, you’ve never heard them quite like this.

We were very fortunate to be gifted three nice craft beers from the Northern Virginia area: Changing Lanes Double IPA by Beltway Brew Co. (Sterling, VA), Local Lager by Three Notch’d Brewing and Ghost Fleet New England IPA by Vanish Farmwoods Brewery (Leesburg, VA); as well as a very suiting brown ale for this episode called The Brown Note from Against the Grain Brewery (Louisville, KY). Thanks again for the beers, Chip—we mean, Henry 😉

We also talk about nicknames, Josh’s new “title” around Hickory, disturbing grandparent photos, and other crappy topics. Strap in and hold on, because the Deuce is loose!
