The Show

Based out of the Scenic City, Chattanooga, Tennessee. Sit down with Tanner, Jared, and Alan for a couple of pints of good conversation, theories, and beer. This show isn't for the faint of heart, or children. But neither is good beer. We can't promise you won't be offended, but we can promise good conversation and (hopefully) some good beer. After all, good conversation is intoxicating.

They also recently visited the new pour your own beer bar in town, American Draft, and they have lots to tell you about that.

They also discuss what can give a beer a plastic or rubbery taste.

Below is from the MoreBeer website:


Tastes/Smells Like:
Plastic, Vinyl, Iodine
Possible Causes:
Using chlorinated tap water to brew or rinse equipment is the most common cause
for plastic-like or medicinal flavors. Medicinal flavors can also be the result of using
cleanser or sanitizer that is chlorine or iodine based. Some wild yeast will contribute
to a similar medicinal taste.
How to Avoid:
Don’t use chlorinated water to brew or to rinse equipment that will come into contact
with the beer. If chlorinated water must be used, use a water filter that removes
chlorine or boil the water for 15 minutes and then cool to room temperature to force
out any chlorine that may be present. Always use the recommended amount and
concentrations of sanitizers. Most sanitizers will not cause any off flavors when used
properly. When using bleach, use one-half ounce per gallon of water, let equipment
soak for 10 minutes and always rinse with sanitized (pre-boiled) water.”

Founders Brewing | Rubaeus Rasberry Ale


Opposite Box is a genre-bending experimental rock band from Chattanooga, TN known for high energy live shows and a seamless blend of psychedelic jazz, progressive rock and dirty funk – dubbed “Belligerent Jungle Funk” – that is often compared to acts like Frank Zappa, Mr. Bungle and Parliament Funkadelic.


Opposite Box presents a theatrical live experience with an over-the-top, psychedelic atmosphere. Dazzling lights, a spectacular cast of characters ranging from belly dancers and fire eaters to live painters and costumed freaks and an organized cacophony of sounds and inspirations hearken back to a time when artists were more than still life paintings in the background performing the soundtrack to failed dive bar pickup lines and overly complicated drink orders.  Opposite Box challenges all in attendance to engage and react, allowing the audience to become the show.                                                                                                                                   -

Movies like Bullitt, Vanishing Point, and the original Gone in Sixty Seconds set a precedence for car movies and the desire to shoot practical effects because, well... they had to. But without the foundation that these great classic films established we wouldn't have the large franchised car movies we have today such as Transformers and the Fast and Furious Franchise.

This episode we wanted to talk about one of our absolutely favorite genres... Westerns.
