Coffee is great. Beer is great. Beer with coffee is really great. So when Historic Brewing let me know about a beer they do with Flagstaff-based Elevate Nepal every year that is launched at a Big Lebowski themed bowling event I had to know more. In this episode I sit down with Dan Maurer from Elevate Nepal and Kaitlyn Wolin from Historic Brewing to talk about the project as well as how Dan and his team are working tirelessly to help the people of Nepal including growing of amazing coffee.

Ok, so in my defense I DID post an instagram story about taking the rest of December off from putting out episodes. HOWEVER, I now realize how small of a scope it is and that was super weak on my part. Sorry bout dat. So heres what up: The Arizona Beer Book is out and it looks amazing! We have been getting that bad boy all over the state. Be on the lookout at your local Arizona brewery or taproom. We are also launching "A Taste of AZ" very soon to put the same efforts and heart into Arizona food as we do Arizona beer to highlight the people making great things happen.
With that said Tap That AZ episodes will resume January 6th and we'll start off with a banger: another 2 part episode recorded live at the most recent AZ Wilderness Camp Coolship. Guests include Trve, Plan Bee, Black Project, and Fonta Flora among others. Yeah, you don't want to miss those.
Thank you as always for your support!

In this episode I travel.....5 minutes south of my house. Woohoo! Along with Front Pourch off Happy Valley Road and the upcoming State 48 Rock House we are starting to get some great places up in North Phoenix. I am especially stoked about Simple Machine. I have known co-owner Marshall Norris for a few years and he's the first person I've met who I've known before they opened up a new brewery. Oh yeah, plus him and co-owner Matt Wright are just super cool dudes who happen to make some really badass beer. Did I mention they are 5 minutes from where I live? This could be trouble...

In one of the funnest episodes I've recorded I hang out with The Brewmance and Earn Your Booze at The Shop Beer Co in Tempe. Rob and Mike are true professionals on the mic and always a great time to hang out with. These guys have been all about the craft beer scene for quite some time now. It was only a matter of time before we got together for an episode. Enjoy!

In this episode I chat with Jim McCune and Jackie DiBella from Craft Beer Marketing Awards. This is the first year for the awards and it sounds really awesome. The liquid in the beer world tends to get all the attention (and rightfully so) but the marketing side is one of my favorite aspects of craft beer. Jim and Jackie explain what the awards are all about as well as the excitement from the beer community for this long-overdue recognition. If you want to enter please click this link. The early bird discounted entry ends November 29th. Enjoy the show!

In this episode I head up north to Lazy G Brewhouse in Prescott. A newly built build creates a large and beautiful space (both indoor and outdoor) to enjoy what will be a long line of great beers and fantastic food in the coming years. With a brewer who hails from the legendary California brew scene and who knows a thing or two about great beer, Lazy G is on the must-visit list every time I head up north. Enjoy the show!
