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:

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.

CHALWA High Country Reggae

chalwaSince 2006 CHALWA has been jamming its brand of high country reggae across North Carolina and Jamaica. Playing as many nights as their wives allow, they are one of the hardest working bands around. Which is somewhat ironic, as their melodic sounds sooth the soul. Its lots of fun, and we were lucky to chat with CHALWA members Dennis Berndt, Timothy Marsh, and Nethali Percival, just moments before they had to jump on stage at Southern Appalachian Brewery for yet another epic performance. Kensman Jonathan Ayers (Stagshead Brewing) and Brewpon Tommy Green facilitate the conversation.
