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!

 

Ep. 56: Fuzz Duster

FUZZDUSTER—What the heck!?! Listen now to learn how to make a FuzzDuster from Elysian Brewing Company (Seattle, WA) by blending their Space Dust IPA and Super Fuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale. We’re not joking with ya, it’s ahh-olee shitahhh—good stuff. We also delve into some serious subjects: Unfortunate city names, the origin of talking parrots, and why Fitty Cent said it was “her birthday” in the first place. This one’s a quickie, but much like in life, that can be a good thing?

 

Ep. 55: Flintstone Overdose

We’re back! And my-oh-my do we have some stories to tell. Sandwich pic texts? 1,000 year old eggs? Favorite candy? An overdose on Flintstone Vitamins? Let us just say, “Yes, yes, yes, and… yes!” We start this episode with our very own home-brewed Dry Irish Stout (which still needs a name), and also feature Soft and Sublime New England IPA from Wise Man Brewing (Winston-Salem, NC) and Wicked Hazy Juicy New England IPA from Samuel Adams Brewing (Boston, MA). We finish with another round of “Think Fast” and tons of laughs. You don’t want to miss this episode!

 

Ep. 54: Flocculating Bodhran

Our latest episode—just like a Trophy Husband—starts slow, works in a little foreplay, and finishes with a bang to leave you completely satisfied! We drank from flight glasses this time, featuring these North Carolina craft beers : Trophy Husband Witbier from Trophy Brewing Co. (Raleigh, NC), Road Hazard Hazy IPA from Crank Arm Brewing (Raleigh, NC) and Fire on the Mountain Jalepeño Amber Ale from Lost Province Brewing Company (Boone, NC). We play a great game, as well as our own versions of flutes and bohdrans. Laugh with us, drink with us, and have a good time!

(Wilmington, NC) and Industrial Lipstick Kettle Sour Ale from Resident Culture (Charlotte, NC). Tune in, listen up, and join us for another episode of beer and good times!
