Lockdown sucks, but it sucks less with a little Zoom chat with Alex Lovinggood and Pete from Barn Town Brewing in Iowa. We recorded this before I went with the Pro License so it was recorded in 2 35+ minute chunks. We even got guest appearances from Brandon and Amanda Wright (Werk Force) and Steve Miller (Hailstorm). There were beers chugged and shotgunned and some pretty hilarious conversation. Now you can even check out the Zoom video recording on my Youtube Channel.

Despite my best efforts, I made the choice to move the podcast to a remote setting by hosting it on Zoom Meeting. Mike Pallen at Mikerphone is deeply entrenched in this New World of To Go/Carryout only due to Covid 19, so I wanted to gets some thoughts from him and give people something to do while we are all locked down and Quarantined. The crew was awesome enough to accommodate my Podcast request, so here is the Pilot Episode of Quarantine Content!

Just another interesting human to talk to. Brian Barclay of Barclay Brewing is doing something truly unique, with a completely fresh perspective. His story is pretty damn cool, and You get to hear from Armando, the beer buyer over at Warehouse Liquors in the South Loop. We did drink through some pretty high octane stuff, so we may ramble a bit, but man did we have some fun. We even had an Inception moment with Don't Drink Beer creator, Alex Kidd. This one should be a fun listen for anybody.

Katy and Michelle rolled out the red carpet for me with a little tour, some coffee, a lot of conversation, and some food and science to cap it all off. These two have plenty of stories surrounding their beautiful space in Old Irving Park. The Place was just tremendous and so were the hosts. Get to know about this Brewery and Ciderhouse and get out there immediately.

It is a must listen for beer nerds everywhere.

Smoked Meats and Beer Talk. You can't really beat that. With 40 taps to choose from, DYB is a sweet little spot to have a beer and kick it. I got to sit down with the owners of all 4 breweries that dwell within DYB. Its a long one but damn was it entertaining. We got technical, we got comical, we sang, we drank, but more importantly, we learned how and why they started this whole thing.
