PGP Has A New Friend

3Jul

Happy 4th of July craft beer lovers, if your like us you’ll be celebrating with a cold White Hatter, Nicie Spicie, or Sky High Rye with a bunch of fighter jets flying over your head. One thing we will not be drinking is the Purple Gang Pilsner (Sorry Atwater) and this weeks Brew for the Crew might be hanging with PGP over the holiday weekend. 

The Honey Lav from Black Rocks Brewery is our Brew for the Crew this week, and although some liked the beer, Los Bob gave it a score so low it rivaled some of our worst rated beers. 
We do dive into a lot of good stuff this week and since Dan Crackel aka “The Ringer” called in and one this weeks trivia question we do have a new one! yay. Thanks for listening good people. We will be taking a week off next week because the Cherry Festival is upon us and we all have to work. Thats because we’re good at our jobs. Cheers!

Ben Darcie from Brewery Vivant

7May

We are back in the studio after taking a week off to relax, drink a few new brews, and get some fine photos of the crew in banana hammocks. You'll have to wait a few weeks to see those, but during our time off Bob met Ben Darcie at the Imperial Beverage Show right here in Traverse City. Ben is a Wandering Monk for Brewery Vivant, one of our favorite Grand Rapids breweries. Ben is one interesting dude with a hell of a back story. He loves beer and has a lot of great resources to help one who wants to learn about craft beer.

Our Brew for the Crew brought to you by the Beverage Company is the Cocoa Loco from Arcadia Ales. It's a triple chocolate stout which always fun to throw at Los Bob because well... Bob hates chocolate, but that's why we love him.

Carly smacks us with a great Carly's Cuisine segment, Bob breaks down the Final Four of the Brew Bracket, and Shauny Boy loves the mushroom festival in Mesick.

Black Rocks Grand Rabbits

Welcome to another episode of Drink My Brewcast the podcast where three Northern Michigan Bartenders breakdown a few microbrew and tell stories good and bad of the Traverse City service industry. Today we talk about a benefit for Keith Barnsdale who owns Keith's Cool Ride and was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. Keith has bailed many of us out in the past and we are very saddened by this news. There is a benefit for Keith and his family going on at Union Street Station in Traverse City on April 27th at 3pm.

Today we review the Black Rocks Grand Rabbits for the Brew for the Crew sponsored by The Beverage Company. This is the  first Cream Ale we have ever reviewed and it gets a solid score from the Brewtenders.

We have a update on the third round of the brew brackets, a new trivia question, growl, happy hour, and Carly's Cuisine. We always appreciate you listening and hope to hear from you via our speakpipe app and email drinkmybrewcast@icloud.com.

For the second part of episode 59 we decided to keep challenging our taste buds after an uninspired effort in last weeks IPA challenge. So we brought out the Jelly Beans.

We hope you enjoy this episode of Drink My Brewcast and remember if you have any comments or questions or just want to throw us a bone. Email us at Drinkmybrewcast@icloud.com.
