We have made it to episode #10 without #1, killing each other, and #2, giving up! On this week's episode we decided to change up a bit and do a whole new format. We invited some San Antonio Craft Beer veterans for a discussion about the latest beer trends. It was our pleasure to have Blake Murrah (former HEB Grocery Beer Dept., former Southern Star Brewing Company Sales Rep), and Jeremy Banas (known for being a published writer and contributor to some well known beer magazines/websites). Mostly we give our opinions on the Haze Craze! We talk about Hazy IPA's, NEIPA's, Pastry Stouts, Glitter Beer, and all the other stupid new trends that are out there! ----more----

We ended up going into all kinds of subjects during our longest show to date. Don't worry, we did also drink some beer, and gave our reviews on the beers we drank. We dove right into a NEIPA called Not a Collaboration provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company. Then I pulled an oldie out of the beer fridge, a 2015 Smoked Porter by Alaskan Brewing Company, which held up beautifully, by the way! We only had time to drink a third beer, and our conversation steered us towards a Berliner Weisse, so we shared a Mikkeller beer by the name of Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Passion Fruit.

There were no Metal Connections on this episode, but there is a featured band, the German Thrash Death Metal band, Holy Moses. They provided us the title song for this episode, "Hate is Just a Four Letter Word" from their 1994 full length album, No Matter What's the Cause. This is actually a cover song, originally performed by a band called Shock Therapy. Of course, I changed the title to HAZE is Just a Four Letter Word to match our subject matter. I did the best I could to fit some more Holy Moses music into the show, and you could hear some songs being played in the background of us talking. We also featured the songs Queen of Siam, In the Slaughterhouse, Strange Deception, Guns 'n' Moses, Malicious Race, Fuck You, Hell on Earth, Rebirthing, Alienation, and Undead Dogs. This put one song from each of their studio full length albums to date. Please check out the songs, and buy their albums, maybe some merch. Show some love to this awesome fuckin' band!

We really want to thank all you mother fuckers out there for supporting this show and taking the journey with us. We are happy to have made it this far.

We are a proud member of The Hopped Up Network!

We're back, mother fuckers! Yes, we are still alive and kicking. Welcome to episode 17, Beerfest in the Deep. On this episode, we were at the San Antonio Beer Festival, which took place on Saturday, October 20th, 2018. We walked around with our handheld digital recorder and spoke to some of the industry people who were there at the festival. Originally, this was going to be a 3-4 part episode, but we did not get to talk to everybody as originally planned, and after the edits were made, I was able to put together this less than an hour long episode. After adding the Metal music, it pushed the episode to over an hour long. We really hope you enjoy this episode, as much as we enjoyed recording it.

This episode's featured band is UNLEASHED.Please support this amazing Death Metal band.http://www.unleashed.se/

About 2 weeks ago we took the show on the road again. We went to Houston, TX and did a few brewery visits while there. We started out at 8th Wonder Brewery, then hopped across the street to the newly opened 8th Wonder Distillery. After we left that area, we went to Town in City Brewing Company, then closed out our day at Great Heights Brewing Company. We went on a Sunday, so we needed to be picky about where we went due to hours and limitations.

We drank a lot of beer, got a little trashed, and you can hear it as the show goes on. Pretty funny shit! We drank a few Hazy NEIPA's despite our love (sarcastic) for whole Haze Craze. We were met by a good friend, Jorge Venegas, who works at Spec's in the Beer Department. It was fun having him join us.

There were no Metal Connections in tis episode, but I did manage to include a featured band. Our episode is titled "Road Rage Beer Killer" based on the song Road Rage Killer by the German Heavy Metal band, Grave Digger. This theme song comes from their Return of the Reaper album from 2014. This German band has had a very long career dating back to 1980. It was fun and entertaining going through their 19 full length albums to find songs to be included in this episode. Besides our theme song, you can also here these amazing tunes: Heavy Metal Breakdown, Playin' Fools, Fight the Fight, Shadowmaker, Baphomet, Spirits of the Dead, Hell to Pay, Hell Dog, and Call for War.
