This time Leroy and I are sitting down to talk with Ryan Deyo and Mike Goldfuss, Co-founders of The Collective Brewing Project. This was our first time chatting with one of the Fort Worth breweries and it was a fun one. We talk with Ryan and Mike about some of the interesting funky and sour beers they brew such as the Papaya and Tropic Thunder Green Tea Saisons. We also get into their history of opening Collective and learn about The Collective Bottle Project, their bottle club (which they still have memberships available). So as always, grab a cold one, hit the play button and enjoy!
P.S. This coming Saturday, November 4th is Collective's 3 year anniversary, so If you're free, you should head out there for the festivities!!!

We're back with our second road-trip podcast. This time we're talking with Cory Mathews, owner of Lazy Beach Brewing down in Corpus Christi. We talk with him about his starting the brewery in a vacation based city such as Corpus and how he started and hosted the first Corpus Christi Beer Festival this past March. So sit back, crack open a cold one open and enjoy. (P.S. To let everyone know, we recorded this episode about a week and a half before Harvey hit both Corpus and Port Aransas. Lazy Beach, was not affected by the storm, but as everyone else knows, that was not the same for the rest of the surrounding areas. Lazy Beach has gone out of its way to both help and raise support for the relief and cleanup efforts down there.

If you get the chance and haven't already, please help and donate to any of the groups that are working to help all of the areas affected by such storms such as Harvey and Imra. Thanks!)

Leroy and I made a road trip down to Port Aransas with our buddy James and decided to record a few episodes while on the trip. Our first recording was with New Braunfels Brewing Company. We sat down with Kelly Meyer, owner, and Nathan Rice, the head brewer. We discussed different topics such as their love for beer, opening a brewery in a very tourist centric city such as New Braunsfel and how they deal with being a brewery that has a very central focus: Wheat and Sour Beers. If you get the chance to check them out, you really should. With that said, go crack one open, put your earbuds in and have a listen!

It's been a while. Once again I have to apologize for another hiatus, but sometimes real life just gets in the way of everything, like it did for Leroy and I. We are back though this time, with the interview we recordered with Greg McCarthy, one of the owners of Legal Draft Brewery in Arlington, Tx. back in June. We get in to some interesting topics such as going from being lawyer to brewery owner, residing in one of Arlington's old car dealerships, and the comparison between Legal Draft and Division, Arlington's other brewery. So kick back, crack a cool one open, and enjoy!
P.S. We're about to head out on a road-trip and will be doing a podcast or two while on the road. Be sure to check the FB page (which will now be updated for sure) and the twitter page for info on how to get us questions for the interviews if you have them.

Hey gang, here we are with Retro Brew #2. With this epsidoe we are pairing the Goose Island Bourban Barrel 2015 Coffee Stout and the 2015 Regular Stout with the NES's Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos. We were going to pair the 2015 coffee stout, but like most know, a majrity of them had been infected. Also in the episode, we have our friend Three (really name Robert) help host the show. So I hope all of you craft beer drinkers and gamers enjoy!!!
