Getting over Stevo

By Dr Bob64 - May 30 2009

These guys are good but this guy Steve grates on my nerves. He corrects the other two on pronunciation all the time of French and Italian wines, and a lot of the time he gets it wrong. Tell him to back off a little. Other than that it is an enjoyable podcast.

It's a Beautiful Thing

I have about 3-4 podcasts that I listen to immediately when a new episode arrives, and Big Foamy Head is one. These guys are hilarious, and they picked the unfair advantage of centering on three of the greatest topics available.

It took a beer this good to drag our asses out of retirement and produce a NSFW show. Join us as we sample Deviant Dale, an imperial version of Dale's Pale Ale. Oskar Blues hit a home run with this one. It's an 8% tallboy can that will leave you smiling. Great nose, great taste, and an extra large serving. Modus Hoperandi from Ska Brewing makes an appearance as well and Rick elaborates. On the other hand, we have a drain pour beer called Ass Kisser Double IPA on this show as well. Truly disgusting, and we call it that way. Musical entertainment this show features a trip down the psycobilly highway with some rocking music from SuperSuckers and Nashville Pussy. That's their name, don't wear it out. We also offer a feeble excuse on why we haven't produced shows for a year. Will this be a last gasp? Or will we resurrect ourselves? Listen up and let us know what you think.

In which we find our heroes recovering after slaying the mighty GABF. Basically, we're all beat down by the waves of amazing beer we poured down our beerholes over a 5 day period. And it shows in the thumps and bumps and gravelly voices in this podcast. All you cheap bastards can enjoy the sensation of being at GABF as we regale you tales from the faraway, mystical land of Denver. Musical stylings by the Talking Heads (Psycho Killer), Richard Thompson (Dad's Gonna Kill Me) and the Black Keys (Lies). Prost!

We couldn't let a whole year go by without a show. We managed to get everyone together for a round or two of beers in front of recording devices, and this is what you get.
We had a wide range of beers on this show - from Belgians to Hop Bombs, and relived some moments from Memphis in May, along with a new friend or two. Through in some good music and you've got yourself another BFH Show.
Scratch that itch with this testament to hops and barley.

In celebration of National IPA Day, we present a tutorial on the nuances of hops and IPAs for our hop-challenged friends. Actually, we just drink some great beers and babble on endlessly about Vince Gill, beer festivals, hot chicken, t-shirts, and beertards.
We kick it off with a Great Divide 18th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA. Oh yes we did. Sacrifical Beer Virgin Clark weighs in with his insightful comments on it («its good»), we have a short-fill beer and a meh beer, and we have a three-way with John Hiatt, Joe Bonamassa, and Vince Gill. Wait, that didn't come out right...

Show 157 - Lips of Brett

Podcast cover

We drink a brett beer that may or may not be half assed. Depends on what you are looking for and whether you are all about the Styles. We're talking about the collaboration between New Belgium and Lost Abbey called Brett Beer that takes a beating on the beer boards. We give you the straight poop on whether its poop or not. Segue to a discussion of the Arc Angels, a great Texas rock group you may never have heard of, and a hint about earlier musical collaborations. We catch up on the latest beer events around towns including bicycle beers and drunk running.
We bring Ziggy Stardust back up with a special, rarely heard recording of a tour rehearsal featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn. Right before he quit the... collaboration. See a pattern here?
And here is the link to that amazing session with Stevie Ray Vaughn and David Bowie in Dallas
Then we get a little darker with some old homebrew Rick found in the back of the fridge from our friends at The Beer Report.
And then we tie up YET ANOTHER COLLABORATION! Listen up kiddies, its good stuff.

And we pontificate about two new breweries, Texas Big Beer and Elevation Brewery and their journey to success. A couple of cool tunes and cool brews and you have a Big Foamy Head show.

The third of the lost interviews series. Mick interviews Rick.

Simply put, Mick is brilliant. He has one of the most sophisticated homebrew systems I've ever seen. It's computer controlled, SRC relayed, PID controlled, yada-yada. The guy can control his brew day while watching a football game upstairs. When Mick was bored being a EE he went to school to become a pharmacist. This guy is smart.

Rick is a multiple-mega-award-winning guru - and no slouch when it comes to technology. He is an entreprenuer, businessman, father, man-about-town. Multiple Golds, ribbons, awards and a Pro-Am brewer.

Give a mic to one, listen to the other... podcast GOLD! Here's the audio.... well, perhaps 2 minutes of audio. Alcohol was involved!
