The BMS Ep.9 - Saison of the Wicked

FINALLY, we have released a new episode. It has been a month since our last episode. We had to take some time off due to some family matters, but we are back, mother fuckers! Did you miss us? Yes... awesome, we love you too. No... Well, Fuck you! One thing that has not changed in this past month is that we still hate the Hazy and Milkshake IPA craze, and those stupid fuckin' small stickers they slap on the cans that they expect us to call beer labels. Fuck that!

This is "Saison of the Wicked!" This one is an all Saison/Farmhouse Ale episode featuring four amazing beers from different states in the US. First up, we drank and reviewed Beatitude Passion Fruit Tart Saison by Council Brewing Company from San Diego, California. Next up was Cucumber Farmhouse by Uinta Brewing Company from Salt Lake City, Utah. The third beer after the mid show break was called Mother Night, a Winter Solstice Dark Funky Saison by Noble Rey Brewing Company from Dallas, Texas. Lastly, we ended the show with a bit of a surprise. A friend of mine brought us a bottle recently that we decided to throw into this episode, because, well, we just couldn't fuckin' wait to drink this bitch. We are talking about The Devil's Farmhouse by Schlafly, The Saint Louis Brewery from, well duh, Saint Louis, Missouri.

The title of this episode comes from the song "Season of the Wicked" by the amazing Death Metal giants, Sinister from The Netherlands. We heard some killer fuckin' songs from Sinister throughout this episode. Please check out these links to hear these awesome songs. Putrefying Remains, Sadistic Intent, Embodiment of Chaos, Into the Forgotten, Afterburner, and Palace of the Fates. All are really great songs. In fact, I had a hard time choosing which songs I wanted to feature here, cause trust me, there were many other songs on my list to be featured.

Metal Connection songs include Master - Faith is Still in Season, Pain - Season of the Reaper, Benediction - Dark is the Season, and Nazghor - Upon the Darkest Season.

As usual, please support these hard-working bands by showing support for them and their respected Record Labels by visiting their sites, purchasing anything released by them from music to merchandise. Do the same for these breweries that release these amazing beers, as well. 

We are a proud member of The Hopped Up Network.

Thank you for your support mother fuckers! We appreciate it! Cheers!



       

This is Episode #8, the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin' Metal. A Craft Beer for the Damned is the title of this episode and is a play on the song title, A Curfew for the Damned by the mighty Edge of Sanity from Sweden. One of my favorite Death Metal bands. On this episode we have four amazing beers that we dissected and devoured for your listening pleasure. On day 1 we went with Austin's Hops & Grain Brewing Chingona, a 5.2% Lager with an amazing story behind the beer and Nomad Brewing Co. from Australia with their Freshie Salt & Pepper, a 4.5% Gose brewed with seawater, Tasmanian pepper berries, and coriander. On day 2 we dove right into a Stone Brewing collaboration beer called Neapolitan Dynamite, an 8.5% Imperial Stout brewed with chocolate, vanilla, strawberries and coffee, and we finished off the this episode with Thin Mint Stout, a 9.4% Sweet Stout brewed with mint, Madagascar vanilla, and dark chocolate malt by Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. from Houston, TX.

There are some amazing Metal Connections this episode, which includes songs by Derkéta, Exodus, Pink Cream 69, and Primitive Man.

Featured Band: Edge of Sanity

This is Episode #7, the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin' Metal. It was Easter Sunday, and we found ourselves read to drink some beer, after we had a family lunch at my mother's house. Usually, we try to drink the beers reviewed seperately thoughtout the week, so we don't get too trashed, but we said "Fuck it, let's drink all 4 beers today!"

----more----

Adding the Metal Connections, and then doing the editing to the show takes up some time, but I was finally able to finish, and get this episode uploaded. This episode features some amazing Craft Beers from Russian River Brewing Company, Bear Republic Brewing, and Roughtail Brewing. This was an all IPA show! The awesome part was that none of them were fucking hazy beers! The beers featured were Roughtail Brewing Hoptometrist, Bear Republic Brewing Hop Shovel, and Pliny the Elder along with Blind Pig, both from Russian River Brewing.

The featured band was Germany's Power/Heavy Metal band, Primal Fear. One of my favorite bands. On this episode you could hear these amazing songs: "Metal is Forever," "Running in the Dust," "Fight to Survive," "Fight the Fire," "Mind Control," "Evil Spell," and "The Healer." Some excellent song choices for the Metal Connections including songs by Artillery, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, Destroyer 666, and Kataklysm. Hoptometrist was paired with Artillery - Doctor Evil. Hop Shovel was paired with Rumpelstiltskin Grinder - Grab a Shovel (We've Got Bodies to Bury). Blind Pig IPA was paired with Destroyer 666 - Die you Fucking Pig. Finally, Pliny the Elder wqas paired with Kataklysm - Elder God.

As always, please support these bands by purchasing their albums, and/or merchandise directly from them or their record labels. Watch out for bootlegs! Always, always, always, drink Craft Beer, local if available. Support these hard working people in both the Craft Beer and Music industry.

This is Episode #6(66), the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin' Metal. On this episode we (The Beer Metal Dude & The Craft Brewja) find ourselves drinking and reviewing some Metal fuckin' beers from some great breweries. ----more----We featured Hammer of the Gods by Braindead Brewing from Dallas, TX. This is an Imperial Wheat Porter aged in Bourbon Barrels. This one was vintage 2017 at 11% ABV. We then go right into another heavy beer, a 13.5% Imperial Stout brewed with coffee and cocoa nibs, aged in Bourbon Barrels, Vintage 2016. This beer was called Track #10: Bat Outta Hell by The Lost Abbey from San Marcos, CA. We take some time off to do some serious drinking at the 5th year anniversary party for 8th Wonder Brewery, which is who I work for. Sorry, we did not record this adventure. We then recover to come back and finish off the episode. We go right into TRVE Brewing with their 1000 Eyes, a Whiskey Barrel Aged Sour Ale vintage 2015. This one was at 7.5% ABV. We then finish off the episode with Burial Beer Company from Ashville, NC with their Bolo Coconut Brown Ale. This one sits at 5.6% ABV. Excellent beers this episode, for sure!

Of course, there is also some fuckin' Metal on this episode. Our featured band to fit perfect with episode 6(66) was none other than Deicide from Florida. We took their song "When Satan Rules His World" and titled out episode after that song. It is the first song you hear after our intro. Other songs we hear from Deicide are "Once Upon the Cross," "Deicide," "Trifixion," "Carnage in the Temple of the Damned," "Homage for Satan," and finally "Satan Spawn, the Caco Daemon."

Not only do we feature a band on each episode, we also have our Metal Connections for each beer. Here is what we featured this episode:

Finally, we were able to finish episode 5. We had to deal with some illness over the past weeks, but we fought hard, and prevailed over that shit! We drank and reviewed 4 excellent Craft Beers from the great state of Texas, and paired them with some amazing fuckin' Metal! Download the episode and listen to The BeerMetalDude and TheCraftBrewja as we describe these beers in detail for you all. Don't let anything get in your way, as we did. Can't stop... Won't stop! Cheers and Horns up!

Here we are with part 2 of the TUPPS Brewery Experience. The last 3 beers of this variety 6-pack are reviewed in this episode. Excellent Metal Connections as usual with these three. My co-host, my wife Maria "210Brewja" Mendiola and I had a really exciting time recording this episode. As much as we praise TUPPS  Brewery for being an awesome place with good beers, we had some mishaps with these three beers while recording this episode. You will have to hear this one to see what I am talking about.

Greetings Mother Fuckers and Fuckettes, and welcome to episode #3 of The Beer Metal Show. I am your host, Aaron Mendioa, a.k.a. The Beer Metal Dude. Joining me today is my lovely wife, Maria, a.k.a. The 210 Brewja. This episode features beers from TUPPS Brewery out of McKinney, TX. A couple of years ago, for my birthday, we visited the Dallas, TX area and went to several breweries over a few days span. TUPPS was one of those breweries that we visited. Recently, they have opened distribution here in San Antonio, TX with their 6-pack variety box. In this episode, we reviewed the first 3 beers from this box, Day Off Kölsch, Texas Shade Wheat, and Cotton Mill Gold Pale Ale. There are excellent Metal Connections, as usual. Please be sure to check out all the bands, and beers featured within this episode.

Greetings Corpse Carvers an Craft Beer Drinkers, I am your host, Aaron Mendiola aka The Beer Metal Dude and welcome to Episode 2 of The Beer Metal Show Podcast.

Here we do Craft Beer Reviews with a nice little touch called The Metal Connection, where I pair a fun family friendly Metal song with the featured beer. I have been doing so since 2013 with my blog site, BeerMetalDude.com. Recently I have decided to make a podcast, thus creating The Beer Metal Show.

----more----

So excited to be presenting you episode #2 with some amazing Craft Beers. This week the beers are all from the US. First up we will be talking about Apex Predator, a Saison/Farmhouse Ale by Off Color Brewing from Chicago, IL followed by Biere Joi from Bayou Teche from Louisiana. This one is a Belgian Dubbel brewed with a local coffee from their area then aged in oak barrels with cocoa nibs and chile d’arbol peppers. OK, next up will be One Barrel Brewing Company’s 5th Element, a Rye IPA, which I normally love, so we’ll see how this one held up to my standards. And finally, the show will end with The Dude’s Brewing Company and their Juicebox series Blood Orange Amber Ale which features cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and hand zested California Blood Oranges.I have some fuckin great Metal Connections to go along with these beer reviews. What an amazing episode this will be.

In late October 2017, a new idea came to mind. This idea was to put my reviews up in a podcast. I purchased some inexpensive equipment to start off with, since I am a cheap mother fucker, and I am good at making cheap shit work like luxurious shit! It was definitely a lot easier to talk about a beer over a microphone rather than typing out what I was trying to say in paragraph form for the blog. I will still put up a written review here and there for those that are not reviewed on the podcast, but majority of my beer reviews will now be talked about. I hope you still follow my Craft Beer & Metal journey, and click the link to the podcast. Please share it, comment, like it, all that good shit.
