Hey Y'all, 

Anyone who has ever listened to the show knows how much Augie and John love pilsner. So it should come as a surprise to no one that on a recent trip to Colorado their first stop was to the Bierstadt Lagerhaus in Denver. 

Our guests this week are brewers and owners Ashleigh Carter and Bill Eye and over quite a few rounds of their famous slow pour pilsner we got into the history of their brewing system, philosophy on beer, and some spirited arguments. 

The brewery has been a personal favorite for quite some time, so having the chance to talk all things lager with two people who are even more passionate about the style than we are was a lot of fun. Plus, Ashleigh wasn't shy about giving Augie shit, so Holl was super happy with this one.

He's since relocated back to his native North Carolina and is making some super cool beers. We had a fun talk with him on the eve of Hunahpu's Day last month.

Happy Monday, Thieves! We’ve got another return guest for you this week: Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of the newly minted Evil Twin Brewing NYC. Jeppe has been a friend of the show for a while and appeared in one of our early episodes almost four years ago. He’s done a lot in the intervening years including opening a brick-and-mortar brewery in the Ridgewood section of Queens. Tune in to hear all about it and find out what beers he brought for us to blind. Fun show!

Happy Monday, Thieves! We're back at Treadwell Park this week as we head into a whole new year of episodes. We recorded this right after our 4th anniversary show with Chief, so things are well lubricated as we welcomed James Murray, the VP of brewing operations at San Diego's Ballast Point Brewing.

The brewery has made a big impact on beer over the years, from popularizing grapefruit flavor in IPA (we talk about zesting and other methods) to their sale to Constellation Brands a few years back for $1 billion. James has been around for it all and shares the story of the brewery as well as some traditional beers for the black glass.

Happy Monday, Thieves! For the second week in a row Augie skipped out on the show. It's like the early days when John Holl would show up whenever he wanted. Well, Mr. Carton missed a good one. Remember a few weeks back when he asked about the sudden rise in popularity of Modelo and noted we should get a guest to come on and talk about it? We did and welcomed back Chris Shepard of Beer Marketers Insight/Craft Brew News. 

We talked business, trends, and thoughts for beer sales in the future. To help the black glass conversation we enlisted Brant Schweinsberg of Departed Soles Brewing Co. to help out with the blind tasting. Check out all the beer we tasted on our Untappd page. Click here

Happy Monday, Thieves! We've got another great show for you this week with a couple of familiar voices from last week. After we recorded the episode with Chris McClellan, we asked Chris and Anne to stick around and do some culinary and political talking with Augie and John. Augie waxed about his recent trip to Sweden and we eventually got into NJ taproom politics around the 20 minute mark. Tune in to hear Augie and John's takes and let us know what you think!

Happy Monday, Thieves! We're back at it for another week at Treadwell Park in downtown Manhattan, catching up with a slightly jet lagged, but full and happy Augie Carton. He was just back from a long trip through France where he dined and drank well. We got into what fine dining can mean to beer, what we can learn from some of the finest chefs in the world, and more. Plus, Justin reads us a letter and the guys talk about the realities of brewing today. Tune in and let us know what you think!

Happy Monday, Thieves! We've known Andy Crouch for years. We consider him a friend. His opinions on beer have long been the fuel on which we feed and his unapologetic nature fits right in with the show. We like Andy. We like him when we're in Boston at festivals or when we see him in taprooms, or just online. 

So imagine our disappointment when he came on the show and tried to kill us. 

Over the years we've had some pretty rough beers. We've tasted all manner of infections, off flavors, and ingredients that didn't live up to expectation. What Mr. Crouch brought to us for the black glass hit a new level of low. We'll have him back on, sure. But not until we can get the taste of this crap out of our mouths. It might be awhile. On this episode, we likely talked about a lot of things. Give a listen, it's hard for us to remember anything besides the pain.

Hey y'all, we got a brand new episode today with an old friend. Our pal Evan Watson from the Hudson Valley's Plan Bee Farm Brewery recently stopped by to record an episode.

Happy Monday, Thieves! The Rocky Mountain high is kicking in. This week, we've traded our booth at the Lagerhaus in Denver for a dining room table inside a hotel suite in Breckenridge. With the snow whipping around outside, we welcomed Nile Zacherle of Mad Fritz Brewing Co. to the show. 

Mad Fritz is located in California's Napa Valley... so you can guess what Nile and Augie talked about. Still, we did sneak in some beer conversation, talking about terroir, foraging, and the concept of Origin Beer. 

John was the awkward third wheel while a new brewer bromace blossomed. Thank goodness for hangovers, because we were able to take the whole show slow, let thoughts develop and the conversation took some fun turns. 

We're already planning a trip to California to visit Nile. Check out the episode and let us know what you think!

<p>via <a href="http://www.seattleweekly.com/food/cloudburst-brewing-cant-stop-making-new-wet-hop-beers/">Seattle Weekly</a></p>

Welcome to 2019, Thieves!  We're kicking off a new year with an episode that we recorded last year. It's our second show from Boston on the morning after our live audience episode and right before the Beer Advocate IPA Fest. 

Stealing Beer with us this week is Steve Luke, the founder and brewer at Cloudburst Brewing in Seattle. He's celebrated for his recipes and take on the brewing industry, and also well known for wearing a shirt emblazoned with "Fuck AB" that he wore on stage at the Great American Beer Festival in 2018. 

He's got his reasons for that wardrobe choice: He once worked at Elysian, before the mega brewer's acquisition. In addition to talking about how that sale has altered his local beer landscape he took Augie and John on a guided tour of his brewing career. 

And there's something about Boston that brings out the best beer choices in people.  Steve brought with him a bottle that was so special, so inspired that we actually thought about blanking out the name on the tape so that we could hoard all the goodness for ourselves. But, we love you too much to ever actually follow through.

Check out the episode and let us know what you think!

Happy Monday, Thieves! There are certain things we take for granted in this beer universe of ours. Like, how good we have it these days when it comes to visiting breweries in the boroughs. But, not too long ago there wasn't much in the city, save for stalwarts like Brooklyn Brewery. Kyle Hurst of Big ALICe Brewing stopped by the table at Treadwell Park recently to talk about the early days (and long nights) at the brewery, the new barrel room, and to reminisce about the beginnings of NYC Craft Beer. Plus, if you've ever wondered who Big Alice is... we'll tell you, but you're asking the wrong question. Tune in and let us know what you think!
