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!!

Ryan, Kyle, and Evan sat outside on a beautiful night to record an appropriately social distance episode to give some last minute ideas for the best Father's Day gifts one could find on short notice. Mainly some beer, wine, and whiskey ideas plus kitchen, BBQ, and cooking gadgets. We sampled some beers in the first half of the episode from Phase Three Brewing, Sideward Brewing, and the new home-brew Evan just finished. The second half was dedicated to some bourbon sampling which expanded our tastings of some well known and not hard to find bourbons. Enjoy!!

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!!

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.
