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!

Ep. 59: Pound Dawg

Been a while… too long. We’re finally back to pound out another episode so get ready for it! We review three craft beers from our home state of North Carolina: If I Were In Your Shoes Hazy Pale Ale from Ass Clown Brewing Company (Cornelius, NC), #10 American Light Lager from Brown Truck Brewery (High Point, NC) and Valdez Coffee Stout from Pisgah Brewing Company (Black Mountain, NC). Who was the Bonus Jonas brother? Why is it called a chili dog, we ask? (You may or may not think that involves an actual hot dog in the bun!) And a misguided mishap you can only be a part of during COVID. Join us for brews or just laugh along… all on this episode!


Ep. 58: Absolute Block

Cheers? Absolutely! We’re back at it and reviewing two tremendous North Carolina beers: Omega Point Barrel-Aged Barleywine from Olde Hickory Brewery (Hickory, NC) and Absolute Block Dry Irish Stout from Sidetracked Brewery (Morganton, NC). We discuss what it’s like to be stood up at an early morning beer release, and how our home-brew stacks up against an NC Beer Cup gold medal-winning beer. More fun and laughs to be had… tune in now!


Ep. 57: The People’s Tebow

What’s that you say… the People’s what? Well, you’ll just have to find out by listening to this podcast, where we review Pasing Helles Lager and Get the Gose on Berries from Devil’s Logic Brewing (Charlotte, NC), as well as The People’s Elbow Hazy IPA from New Sarum Brewing Co. (Salisbury, NC). Oh, whoops, just gave half of the title away! We also talk about a famous duck named “Long Boy” and why he may have gotten his name, the robots behind the CAPTCHA “prove you are not a robot”, Beer Slushies, and some very memorable prank calls. And was it really all that fun to “stay” at the YMCA like the song suggests? All this and more… tune in now!
