Ep. 76: Shot ‘ere!

Hey, whatcha got ‘ere—a nice shot? Shot ‘ere! We’re swinging for the fences and rounding the bases with Summer beers and good times! What the heck does “Shot ‘ere” mean? Well, we’re glad you want to know… listen to this episode to find out!

We couldn’t do a baseball-themed episode without a baseball beer, and what better craft style than “Play Ball!” Pilsner from Trophy Brewing (Raleigh, NC). And another great summertime pounder? How about “Summerfest” Summertime Lager from Sierra Nevada (Mills River, NC). And for dessert (or your sweet tooth during the 7th inning stretch) we enjoy “Piña Colada Kölsch” from Blowing Rock Brewing (Hickory, NC). These are some great North Carolina craft beers you will definitely want to indulge in this Summer!

Ep. 75: Hootie Who!

For the unknownth time, who’s that guest on the mic? Hey, hey, hey it’s Hootie! But Hoo/Who is this you ask? He’s one of our all-time favorite guests to have on the show, mostly because he brings beer! (And laughs and good times and such of course.) Join us for our 75TH EPISODE, you’ll be glad you did!

We indulge in one of the newest styles on the craft beer scene, a West Coast-Style Pilsner called “Lord of the Fuzz” from DSSOLVR (Asheville, NC). We also get catty with “Hop Creature”, a Hazy Double IPA from Weldworks Brewing Co. (Greeley, CO). And rounding out the trifecta, and aptly saved for last, we sip on “There’s Been an Incident” porter with peanut butter, marshmallow and graham cracker from Divine Barrel Brewing (Charlotte, NC).

Ep. 74: A 3BD Christmas 5B!

¡Feliz Navidad! to our loyal listeners. We’re back for our 5th annual Christmas episode with our good friend, Michael “Chigger” Willard. He brings us Good Tidings of Great Joy with two delicious Mexican/Mexican-Style beers from Good People Brewing and Ghost Train Brewing (both from Birmingham, AL). We cap off the night with a Christmas Jam—not the musical type, but the beer type (from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.), and what a festive occasion we had to wrap up the year! So click the links to listen (iTunes or website), and we wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Great New Year!

Ep. 73: Don’t Call It a Comeback

Don’t call it a comeback! We’ve been here for years—literally. But it has been a while since we were together on the mics, around 7 months. Have we lost our edge or are we sharper than ever? Listen to this podcast to find out!

On this episode, we enjoy three craft beers from around the Carolinas. First up is Low Tops Hazy IPA from HopTown Brewing (Mooresville, NC). Second, we welcome back Cold Mountain Spiced Winter Ale from Highland Brewing (Asheville, NC) which we had on our second podcast way back in 2017. And last but not least, we had a pre-Thanksgiving treat: Apple Pie Gose from Westbrook Brewing Co. (Mount Pleasant, SC).

Instead of a comeback, let’s just call it a “welcome back” and hopefully we didn’t keep you waiting too long!!!

Ep. 72: Moose & Friends

On this episode of 3 Beers Down, we’re joined by Andrew Moose from the Hum outdoor music venue in Hickory, NC. We’ll be talking about the latest in craft beer, including hard seltzers from Thirsty Monk Brewpub and beer from Triple C Brewery.
