Oh, and we drink a lot of their beer!
Joby and Curtis spend the evening at Poseidon Brewing Company, Ventura's newest brewery, and visit with Vinita Anand (owner), Brian Oliver (owner) and Reno King (brewer) about their history, brewhouse specs, and future plans.
Oh, and we drink a lot of their beer!
Jeffers Richardson and Jim Crooks from Firestone Walker's Barrelworks program, entertain a capacity crowd in the BH101 studios.
Jamil Zainasheff, the Pope himself, joins Joby and Curtis for a discussion of beer, homebrewing, beer evaluating and ... beer. Our live studio audience keeps us rolling with excellent questions and Curtis tries to keep his gushing to a minimum.
Easter and 4/20 collide in this episode that features old and new friends, peeps, and cocktails - not necessarily mixed or in that order. No on-air herb enjoyment!
Rick Haught, fellow beer geek and the guy responsible for making Curtis a HopHead, joins Joby, Curtis and Jason in this special Easter edition.
Unfortunately, audio/video technical problems plagued the first 5 minutes of the show so the show begins mid thought while we are contemplating whether or not Hop Devil (the hoppy beer Rick first served to Curtis) is still as hoppy as we remember.
• 1 1/2 oz. vodka
• 1/2 oz. triple sec
• 1/4 oz. blue Curaçao
• Orange peel (for garnish)
Shake ingredients well.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Place the orange peel around the glass and drink!
Rim a martini glass with thick simple syrup and then dip into dyed green coconut flakes, then adorn with a little marshmallow peep. Think of it as your very own adult Easter Basket, but instead of being filled with candy, it’s filled with booze!
Prepare the glasses ahead of time and put them on a tray decorated with jelly beans and other seasonal delights for a stunning effect.
For the cocktail:
* 1 1/2 ounces Cherry Vodka
* 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
* 3 ounces Half and Half or Milk
* Dash Grenadine
Shake with ice until chilled. Pour into decorated glasses and serve.
Joby and I are back behind the mics together after a break that included a scheduled off week, family obligations and a root canal. That is a lot to cover and recover from but we get it done in style with a flight of beers from The Bruery.
This was an ultra light recoding session. Just two mics and a camera phone.
This show is dedicated to responsible drinking and we discuss ways to calculate your blood alcohol content (BAC) as well as how to get home if have had too much to drink.
Jason Hendrik from Everybody's Hungry, sits in for an absent Joby and Isreal and Laura Martinez, owners of We're Driving are our special guests and explain their unique DD service. Jason and I take breathalyzers throughout the show just to illustrate how having 4 beers in two hours can affect you.
To top off the show we have Anastasia, from Tarts N' Crafts, during the post show to talk about beer and desserts!
Joby, Jason and I celebrate IPA Day with ... IPA's! Then, we sit down Barrelhouse Brewing Company to learn a little bit more about this very young brewery. They have a great startup story and we can expect big things from them in the future! We also interview the guys from Local Craft Distribution and learn why they started their own distribution company.
Jason Hendrick (form Everybody's Hungry and pints&pairings) joins Joby and Curtis for a beer and cheese pairing dinner. When you are done listening, you will be able to take away enough pairing information to host your own dinner and wow your friends the next time they come over!
Chas Cloud, headbrewer at Surf Brewery, is our guest for this episode and we talk about his journey from real-estate developer to head brewer. Oh, and we drink a lot of tasty beer! Surf's up dude!

Unfortunately, this episode fell victim to corrupt file syndrome. That wouldn't have been so bad but as I was closing out the video feed I grabbed my phone by the home button and disconnected it from the server before it could save the file. There probably will never be any archive of this show.
It was an epic two hour show that started out with Ventura County Sheriff's Department officers giving Joby and I breathalyzers and educating us about alcohol effects for the first hour. In the second hour we talked to Kristopher Barnes and John Rockwell founders of LA Ale Works. They have a great Kickstater success story so you will want to visit their website.
