Hey everyone, back again with another episode on an up and coming brewery from Tulsa, OK, named American Solera. What a beautiful fall night we had recording on Mark's patio and sipping on some of this breweries most think and viscous stouts. Both "Son's of Darkness" and "Dollar for Dollar" were perhaps some of the more gooey, inky, and chewy barrel aged stouts we have drank; definitely a treat! We also added our new "Provision of the Week" category so tune in to see what Pint and Provision we thought was the best since we were together. Cheers from P+P!!

This year kicked off great from the start for Norse Brewing Company in Wake Forest, NC. Although the pandemic has altered the plans for the brewery, it hasn't slowed co-owner Chris Jorgensen and head brewer Brad Wynn down from making a mighty return. It's all about community for the brewery, making their taproom a destination for locals to return to with plenty of great beer and food. Chris shared his passion for building a welcoming brewery where it always feels like home. Brad has deep brewing roots and has had some extra time recently to fill the tanks for the return of thirsty drinkers. Listen in to hear all about how Norse Brewing Company is truly the heart of their community!

Ryan, Evan, Mark, and Daniel all got an opportunity to talk to Neil Fisher of WeldWerks Brewing Co. based in Greeley, CO. One of our favorite breweries and one that pushes the envelope of beer, Neil shared with us the inception of WeldWerks and how they transitioned into one of the most well know breweries in the country. From their creative adjunct beers, to thoughtful selection of bourbon barrels for the Medianoche series, their creativity pushes the boundaries of what we know about modern beer. Listen in to our conversation, you won't want to miss it!!

Ryan and Evan had their friend Eddy Simone on for a virtual happy hour to talk Florida beers and the environment. Sideward Brewing Co. in Orlando is one of Eddy's favorites and he shared with us why he digs their lagers so much and naturally, we enjoyed one ourselves. Eddy also talked fresh perspectives on being vegan, recycling, and why conservationism is so important, and especially how it impacts him as a beer drinker. Couldn't have asked to enjoy a beer and discuss these topics with a more passionate guy like Eddy and how we all can do better to take care of our planet.

Myk from Live Oak Brewing Company joined Ryan and Evan for a virtual "sit down" so we can discuss how things are going for their brewery down in Austin, TX. We haven't been shy about our love for their lagers and smoke beers and it was a delight to talk to Myk about why they believe in the beers they make and how the pandemic shut down has affected them. Ryan shares his experiences on his semi-recent trip to the brewery's taproom and grounds and Evan laments his missed trip down to ATX to experience the same but rest assured, Myk is confident that soon patrons will be back to enjoy the biergarten and oak trees and crush some amazing lagers. Enjoy!!

That's right everyone, we went COVID-19 safe for this recording and hosted a virtual happy hour with Ryan, Evan, Kyle, and Brad. While it can be tough to be a beer drinker and practice social distancing, we are doing what we can to stay entertained and come to realize a new way we can gather over a couple beers. We shared how we are staying sane in the new reality but don't focus solely on the pandemic as there is plenty of good topics to discuss as to how breweries are becoming more creative and distilleries pivoting to utilizing their products for new uses. Our hope is everyone can utilize a good podcast and a refreshing way to beat the stir crazy we are all starting to get, cheers from P+P!! Looking forward to new guests in the future!

On this episode, Evan and Kyle sit down to work through their plans to brew some hoppy goodness. We enjoyed some beers off the Pour Bros. Craft Taproom tap wall in addition to some small bottles from Funk Factory Geuzeria and Gueuzerie Tilquin. Their idea for beer involved a first run for a West Coast style double IPA and then utilize some additional running from the mash to create a light, sessionable New England style IPA. Lots of technical talk of grains, hops, water, and yeast. This was our last "in person" podcast before the COVID-19 shutdowns took effect and we hope you find this a great way to spend your time at home. Look forward to us publishing some content in the near future to fuel your social distancing like virtual happy hours and video chat episodes!!

When hobbies become obsessions, we often like to share what we know and love about them with others. Although we have dedicated the most time learning the ins/outs of beer, brewing, and breweries, we have also extended our knowledge on those things that complement it: bourbon, wine, coffee, food, and cooking. Listen in to Evan, Ryan, Mark, and Dan, and with periodic guests, dissect those crafts that we love to imbibe.
