59: Mark's Birthday and the World Series

It's not everyday we get to talk about two amazing events: Mark's birthday and the World Series!!  We were so excited about it we never even mentioned the beers was had while recording!  We sipped on a home-brew from New Money Meads called "Fallen but Not Forgotten", a barrel aged stout blended with Golden Oreos, fudge, toasted coconut and marshmallows; Misbeehavin' Meads' Jammy AF; and Jester Kings' Fēn Táo.  It was fun listening to Mark catch us up on his trip out to the pacific NW and the Portland, OR, region where there were tons of pints and provisions.  Evan also was able to brag about his Washington Nationals win of the World Series!

Thanks to Live Oak Brewing in Austin, TX, for sharing an incredible collection of smoked beers with us as we fully dive into our smoked meats from Slow Hand Craft BBQ in Peoria Heights, IL.  They served as our hosts as Evan, Kyle, and Ryan devoured some of their best offerings (absolutely loved the house made burger!) and we sipped on some of the less known smoked beer offerings from Live Oak.  We talked about how much we loved these easy drinkers and why no one should skip a chance to hit up their brewery if you fly into Austin. We also got to hear a lot about Ryan's recent 24 hours in Brussels where a day full of lambics can sometimes be a bit too much lambic!  Hope you enjoy this "Oak" filled episode!! [audio quality wasn't our best but the magic of editing helped to still enjoy the great conversation]

A podcast over beers at a brewery about a podcast you say?  Absolutely!!  Austin and Alex of The People of Peoria Podcast joined Evan and Mark for some great brews and even better conversation at one of our favorite hang out spots, Bearded Owl Brewing.  If you haven't listened to their show, tune in to your favorite podcast provider where these guys introduce you to the interesting people who make Peoria a great place to live.  We were the ones to get to give you some insight into how they started and what they have coming up on their show, all the while letting them drink a couple blind beers we tried to stump them with.  Get our episode where you like your podcasts to learn all about The People of Peoria Podcast!  Thanks to Austin and Alex!!

Mark and Evan sat down with Nick from Bearded Owl Brewing in downtown Peoria to preview the upcoming 2nd Anniversary they are celebrating and to see what's new this time of year.  We were lucky enough to pull some nails from the barrels housing this years upcoming release.  We also opened up one of last years' releases to see how its holding up plus tasted some fresh Dunkelweizen which is becoming one of their signature beers.  Exciting things are on the horizon for one of our favorite breweries in Peoria!!

Evan, Ryan, Mark, and Kyle sit on mic while Pat, Charles, and Mike join us all for the Abbott Holiday Share 2019.  So much stout here while we blind taste Side Project Brewing's Derivation 3, Beer:Barrel:Time 2, and Craft Beer and Brewing Mag's Mamanoche.  Not a lot of disagreement on the favorite of the beer but it made for a great breakdown of some of the best non-adjunct barrel aged stouts.  Mark also brought a biggie of Fonta Flora's Rhythm Rug which didn't last long with this crew.  Another fun year for this annual tradition, hope y'all enjoy listening in!!

The Show

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.
