Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Me and my guests will laugh about and explore all of the weird, scary, creepy things that keep us up at night, and the one thing that helps us forget all about them. From nuclear proliferation to ghosts to asteroids to artificial intelligence and everything in between, each episode will bring a new personal fear and a new craft beer (or, being realistic, a few of each) that we will analyze while we usually veer off and explore several tangents.My guests will include friends, colleagues, experts, and super interesting folks who will all get drunk on great craft beer while we share the things that scare the crap out of us. And hey, sometimes it might just be me. Cheers to Beer Freaks!

Wyndee (CraftHaus Co-Owner) is Afraid of Clowns & We Drink CraftHaus Beer at the Brewery!

11/5/2019
More
Super excited for this one! I am lucky enough to host Wyndee Forrest, co-owner of CraftHaus Brewery, on this episode of Beer Freaks while she hosts me at her brewery. We sip some of their best beers (Dry Heat New England IPA is incredible, by the way), talk about how hazy IPAs use dry hopping to reduce bitterness, and discuss her intense fear of clowns which began with the movie Poltergeist. So much fun! No clownin'. Support the show

10/31/2019
More
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays every year. Tons of great horror films to watch. Crazy scary stories shared. And of course, great seasonal beer. But where does it all come from? In this Horror Happy Hour, we will dig into the history of Halloween, which starts over 4,000 years ago with the Celts, then to the Romans, and eventually, right here to America. Cheers!

Horror Happy Hour #1: Aliens Abducting Cows & Ninkasi Dawn of the Dead Red

10/30/2019
More
Welcome to the first episode of my Horror Happy Hour format. In this roughly five-minute episode, I talk about cows being de-genitaled (is that a word?) in Oregon with no trace of blood while I drink Ninkasi's Dawn of the Dead Red, a fantastic red IPA from the same state where aliens might just be abducting said cows. Cheer! Support the show

Ann is Afraid of Birds & We Drink Station Twenty Six Brewing and Surly Brewing

10/18/2019
More
Ann Johnson is a human badass who travels the world, grew up on a farm, drinks some damn good beer that she happily shared with me, and is for some strange reason afraid of birds (what?). We talk about that fear, along with several others while we hammer back a couple of really great IPAs from Station Twenty Six Brewing including Juicy Banger IPA (the classic) and Juicy Banger Fresh Hop IPA (the young gun), as well as an Xtra Citra Pale Ale from Surly Brewing. After those brews, we were both...

PK is a world traveler, engineer, good friend, and great dude. And today we are talking about his fear of overpopulation and how that is going to impact several aspects of humanity moving forward, including famine, global warming, technology, and more. So it's a damn good thing we have several beers, including Joseph James Hop Box and Tenaya Creek to keep those fears at bay. Cheers! Support the show

I am Afraid of Black Holes & I Drink Kung Pao Beer!

10/11/2019

No guest this time. Just me, my fear of this gigantic black hole that was just discovered and Kung Pao Imperial Stout by Stillwater Artisanal Ales. Believe it or not, this shit was good. I'm talking about the beer. You can decide for yourself on the podcast. Support the show

Derek is Afraid of the Dark & We Drink Golden Road and Saint Archer

10/1/2019
More
Derek is a good friend of mine, basically a Las Vegas native, a podcaster, a TV show host, a man of many talents, and just a fascinating dude. He's also afraid of the dark. And with the stories he tells, he has good reason to be. Damn! So to help get through it, we drink a Golden Road Spicy Mango Cart. Then we try a fantastic brew from Saint Archer (I love you, San Diego). Support the show

Ty is Afraid of the Meaning of Life & We Drink Moscow Mules

10/1/2019
More
Ty is a good friend of mine, a colleague here in Las Vegas, a financial wizard, and he's afraid of the meaning (or meaninglessness) of life. So to help us dive through this, we drink some Moscow Mules. I know, I know, I'm already breaking the rules of my show. But it's my show. Plus, Ty brought them. So we drank them. And they were damn delicious. Especially considering it was like 100 degrees in my recording booth (aka garage). Also, you'll notice that I call the show "Beer & Horrors."...

10/1/2019
More
Marie is a world traveler, Peace Corp survivor, mountain climber, desert hiker, Las Vegas festival wrangler, and an all-around awesome human. And she just so happens to be an agnostic who is really worried that maybe religion and spirituality is real, and now she's going to hell. So to help her cope, we drink Stiegl Radler Grapefruit which is pretty tasty but super low in ABV. Then we have Bell's Brewery Oberon Wheat Ale which was fantastic. Support the show

10/1/2019
More
Jeremy is a good friend, construction planner, Spartan runner, new father, good boyfriend, Sun Devil's fan (unfortunately), festival-goer, and just a really cool guy. Even though he now lives in Phoenix, he came back to visit me in Las Vegas (well, me and the Life is Beautiful music festival) the same weekend that the "Storm Area 51" thing was supposedly going on. So Jeremy wanted to talk about his fear of aliens. And to help us do that without running away in fear, we decided to drink a few...

Blaine is Afraid of Nukes & We Drink Joseph James Citra Rye Pale Ale

10/1/2019
More
Blaine is an industrial engineer, world traveler, and all around good dude. But he used to work for a nuclear power company. So his fear is about nuclear proliferation, especially considering Russia just bragged about launching new rockets that are impossible to shoot down. So to help get past this perfectly legit fear, we drink a few beers, including Joseph James Citra Rye and Lovelady 9th Island Pineapple Sour. Blaine's also got a super charming southern accent, so you might want to just...
