Top Secret info from Covert Artisan Ales

10/23/2021
About a month ago Jason Murphy from porchdrinking.com hit me up on Instagram and said, "You gotta check out Covert Artisan Ales." So I did. Covert founders Dan and Stacey Berry joined us this week to talk about their Sioux Falls, South Dakota brewery. SD was a holdout on jumping on the BGR train. Back in 2018 we even did a Sucking up to South Dakota segment in one of our episodes with Stan Hieronymus. I'm happy to say that SD is now one our Top 50 states for listeners. As we talk about...

Partake Brewing takes their non-alcoholic brews from the Dragon's Den to distribution Partake Brewing founder Ted Fleming was (is) a huge craft beer fan. He loves hanging out with friends and sharing a brew.

Country roads taking me home to Big Draft Brewing

10/9/2021
Big Draft Brewing is helping to bring small town West Virginia back to life Big Draft Brewing is located in the tiny town of White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Population 3,000, give or take. The town, and the larger Greenbrier Valley community, has faced some hard times in recent years. The opioid epidemic chipped away at the community and the "1,000 year flood" of 2016 caused widespread destruction and loss of life. Our show this week is as much about the tenacity of the residents of...

Beer and BBQ at the Terrapin Atlanta Taproom

9/11/2021
A few years ago the Braves made a controversial move to Cobb County, GA... but that's a story for another time. Attached to the ballpark is The Battery. A live-work-play complex with restaurants and shops and condos, and the Terrapin Atlanta Taproom. Terrapin's Taproom sits just beside the main gate to the Brave's stadium. You can even get a beer from the taproom from inside the park. (Pro tip, they're cheaper than the ballpark beers.) Along with the beers they also serve up Fox Bros BBQ,...

8/28/2021
Neutral Ground Brewing Co. lets you have your cake and drink it, too Ft. Worth... Funkytown, a great place for a brewery. Friends Stan Hudson and Sean Doublet definitely think so. When they originally met Sean wasn't even into craft beer. He noted that Stan came around with growlers pouring 4 oz samples for everyone. We know this to be likely as we've known Stan for many years and have experienced his proclivity to share his brews. Interestingly, beer isn't what originally introduced us to...

Bespoken Spirts makes whiskey in just days

8/21/2021
Bespoken Spirits says they can make a delicious whiskey in days instead of years, while using a fraction of the wood and water of traditional methods. Sounds like voodoo to me, but founders Stu Aaron and Martin Janousek claim their spirits are voodoo-free. They've taken the art of distilling and aging spirits and added some science to it. Instead of using barrels, they use "micro-staves" plus some heat and pressure to produce the desired result. They offer your traditional bourbon, rye, and...

Exhibit 'A' Brewing with Kelsey Roth

8/7/2021
Exhibit 'A' Brewing with Kelsey Roth Exhibit 'A' Brewing was voted the most underrated brewery in Massachusetts by Thrillist. When we asked General Manager Kelsey Roth if agreed with the distinction we got a hesitant shrug. Their Goody Two Shoes Kölsch earned a 96 from Wine Enthusiast and landed in their top spot. Do these two "awards" go hand-in-hand, or contradict each other? The world may never know. Roth doesn't seem too wrapped up in either. He just wants to offer good beer and a...

Well, he has his own brewery, a small setup in the shed behind his house. Local laws allow Matt to sell beer from his shed brewery... brewery shed? He recently held a bottle release and had folks lining up in his neighborhood to grab some of that sweet nectar. I hope he has cool neighbors.

Cannabis in a can with CERIA Brewing's Dr. Keith Villa As state's legalize the casual consumption of marijuana I think we knew a time would come when it found it's way into a beer.

July 4, 1776. America is born. There are high fives all around. Samuel Adams breaks out his homebrew to celebrate. Life is good. This week we take a look at some classic American craft beers. American craft is fairly young in the grand scheme of things. Where many European countries have hundreds of years of tradition, we've got 40ish years - with maybe a couple of exceptions. A little thing called Prohibition threw us off for a while but when we got back in the game, we went all out....

When patriarch Stephen Peet retired in 2019 he figured the easiest way to relax was to build a brewery, and bring the whole crew with him. Stephen and Sterling Peet joined us on the show this week with Diana, Christa, Taylor, and Devon Peet holding down the fort. That's a lotta Peets. Stephen tells us the focus of the brewery is community, nature, and the environment. He recalls a...

The festival had brewers from all over the country offering up beers under 5% ABV. There were plenty of lagers as well as some saisons and grisettes, sours, and even some porters and stouts. In the day of TIPAs and double-digit pastry stouts it's nice to celebrate the drinkin' beers. We've been preaching Pilsners...
