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?

Homebrew Horse Blanket and Hydroponics

fifth-season-gardeningOwner Mike Weeks and brewer Jeremy Bruder drink local now with us for episode #0020 at their Fifth Season Gardening hydroponic and homebrew store on Tunnel Road in East Asheville. Find out about the oldest bar tab in the World and horse blanket on the flavor wheel (ref: cat piss #0016). "More esoteric styles of beer are on the horizon and less innovation," postulates Jeremy. Local hops growning in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Mexican hops, Australian hops, and Sierra Nevada's trademark ownership of a specific type of hop are cheery topics of discourse. Though tropical plants are the big sellers at Fifth Season, we go for the great craft beer on tap and their all-gender bathrooms.

Cat Piss on the Flavor Wheel

Monte's TaproomThe scintillating and vivacious Monique "Man Eater" Ruiz proves herself as a podcast host extraordinaire in episode #0016 of Drink Local Now. Whether discussing Tommy Green's micro-penis, cat piss on the flavor wheel, or going head-to-head with Jonathan Ayers on craft beer expertise, the Man Eater holds her own. Crowler, Kinsman, Man Eater, and Little Dickie taste a variety of craft beers before gulping them all down.

Asheville Craft Lifestyle

patriotsCraft lifestyle. Choose your own destiny. You don't have to be the stereotype of somewhere else. Asheville is a cultural port. We have things from all over, and you can pick and choose. You can be one thing on one day, another the next, and its not disingenuous if it is genuine to you," proclaims Asheville beer lawyer Derek Allen in episode #0013 of Drink Local Now. Derek and Jewish adult film star Ron Jeremy have much MORE in common than just being patriots. Listen to the guys talk the Asheville Craft Lifestyle, investing in community, and how collaboration creates financial success and happiness. Derek's band the Stump Mutts are featured in this epic podcast out of MojoCoworking, with Ian "Apple Weed" McAnsh, Jonathan "Kinsman" Ayers, and Tommy "Little Dickie" Green.

We were elated and giddy throughout, happy that we no longer lived in the worst State in the Union. The Funniest Man in Beer, Adam Charnack of Hi-Wire Brewing, hosts us for our podcast at Hi-Wire Brewing's Big Top. Could we have been tripping on LSD? Download the Brewpon app to listen.

Fuk HB2 Invest in Community

house-bill-2-NCDrink Local Now is named as such because we are drinking during the podcast and we are local. Our show is about community. In episode #0007 of Drink Local Now we welcome Patrick Conant and Jesse Michel of PRC Applications to our panel, discussing investing in community as a way of doing business. Tommy Green is tired of businesses branding themselves as "local", when in reality, they could give a crap about the community, and would stomp on their neighbor, if it means getting ahead. Listen to Jonathan Ayers expert tasting analysis of Hunter Gatherer Brewing's Black Patent Ale.... and by the way, F**k HB2! We are angry!
