Episode 14: Bubba in Space
With Spring in the air Ryno, Phil and Gary hang out on Gary’s patio and preview the Houston Open, Astros opening weekend, Bubba Watson hitting golf balls on the face of the moon and a heartfelt letter from Ryan to Ross. This show has it all. Plus plenty of great beer from Parish, Spindletap, Eureka Heights and more.
Word of the day is FOMO.
The Luche makes a cameo and the boys discuss the merits of Untapped including the top 10 most checked in beers of 2017. Buckle up.
If you brew or are thinking about brewing, this joint is for you. The heavy weights of home brewing, Preston Brown of the Grain Cellar, Nick Secrist and Steven Scruggs join Ryan, Gary and the Dozer to drop knowledge on all aspects of the home brewing game. Preston guides Gary and the Dozer through their first brew. Craft Beer chugging? Apparently yes. Mailbag questions from the ginormous fan base? Of course. Moonshine? No comment. Rick Tyler doing Rick Tyler things? Child, please!
What a way to wrap up a wonderful 2017 with good friends, copious rare beers and Christmas tomfoolery. Ryan, Phil, the Luchador, and Ross celebrated the #Astros World Series Championship, Talked about our favorite Christmas movies, favorite Christmas songs, and worst Christmas present we ever received. Oh, and did I mention we shared many festive beers from Jester King, The Answer, Casey, Russian River, Cantillion, Parish and more?
We expanded the craft lexicon by introducing the word “zooted” and took some very interesting mailbag questions from listeners in exotic outposts like Jasper and Klute. We said a tearful goodbye to our good buddy Ross who will be moving away for a while, recapped Matty D’s incredible near death experience and oh, shared some holly jolly beers.
We want to thank Nathan Rees and Texas Leaguer Brewing for hosting us and wish everyone an incredible Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
