Lookout Brewing Black Mountain

To start off 2018, we continue the discussion with craft brewer John Garcia at his Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain, NC. Transgender female Kaylah Mague joins our cast of misanthropes, bringing our show to a level of legitimacy, which Chris Power and Tommy Green are aspiring to reach. Topics discussed include:
  • Lookout Brewing expansion
  • Disc Golf
  • Another Brewery Opening in Black Mountain
  • How much the Asheville Brewers Alliance sucks
  • Good Hops Brewing
  • How much Wicked Weed sold for
  • Appalachian Mountain Brewery is NOT a craft brewer

Natural Born Leaders Pisgah Brewing

Grammy Award winner Debrissa McKinney and Austin Haynes are the new power couple in town. DeBaustin? Michael Martinez fell off the World's tallest water sphere in Union, New Jersey and lived to podcast with us at Pisgah Brewing for Chalwa's residency.


Benton Wharton, the Director of Events and good times at Pisgah, hosted us and shared his craft beer wisdom. Michael Franti and Debrissa McKinney did not speak on this episode.


Natural Born Leaders' Austin Haynes and Michael Martinez jump on stage with Chalwa to chat poetry. It's a once and a lifetime collaboration not to be missed!


Tommy Green explains how he unintentionally walked into this scene at Echo Mountain, having no idea what he saw, and didn't realize what he saw, until Steve Martin started tweeting about it.


Tommy Green labeled Chris Power as the whitest motherfreaker EVER, only to end up as the pot calling the kettle black. He twice referred to Ice T's role in Straight Outta Compton.

Much thanks and love to this episodes sponsors:

        

Pisgah Brewing Stout Hog Day

We celebrate Stout Hog Day in it's 8th year at Pisgah Brewing. Free pancakes and many stout beers flow freely all day. Jonathan and Becky Ayers of the former Stagshead Brewing discuss the renaming of their operation of their soon to open TRISKELION BREWING in Hendo. Dave Quinn, the man who owns and started Pisgah Brewing years and years ago, talks to us about their upcoming expansion, his retirement from personally brewing beer, and the special guest performing their upcoming anniversary show. CHALWA is the main act, with Dennis Berndt and his players bringing the house down for yet another brilliant Stout Hog Day at Pisgah Brewing.

White Horse Black Mountain

Jody Bender and Tommy Green head over to White Horse Black Mountain for their 8th Annual Winter Holiday Concert. Kevin Spears, Kalimba Man, and well known WNC photographer, Herb Way, start us off, setting an ambient tone for the evening. Next up, we were blown away by the phat and modish music of the 16 year old Ian Ridenhour. His integrity and maturity was both enlightening and refreshing. Soon after, we got down and dirty with the vivacious and very sexy Christine Garvin Christmas Go Go Dancers. BJ Leiderman, composer of NPR's Morning Edition theme, was the Grand Finale of yet another epic podcast.

The Pimps of Joytime

pimps-of-joytime"It is actually impossible. There is no way you can experience what another person experiences, but just the act of trying to understand what somebody else is going through is critical. The World would be in a lot better condition if enough people were at least just attempting to be empathetic," says Brian J of the band Pimps of Joytime in episode #0039, recorded at Pisgah Brewing. We just might vote for Brian J as a write in candidate in the upcoming election. Right?
