phil-mark-two raods.jpg

Happy Monday, Thieves! We have a great show for you this week with Phil Markowski of Two Roads Brewing. Phil needs no introduction but here’s a quick recap: he began brewing in the late 80’s at New England Brewing Company before moving to the revered Southampton Publick House. In 2012, he opened Two Roads back in Connecticut as a contract-focused brewery that also produced a killer lineup of house brand beers. As Two Roads’ brew master, he’s likely overseen production of some of your favorite beers in the last 7 years. Two Roads just recently opened Area 2, a sour and wild ale facility adjacent to their main facility. We talk about all this and more. Tune in and let us know what you think!

IMG_9108.jpeg

Happy Labor Day, Thieves! Earlier this summer, Marco Leyte-Vidal of Unseen Creatures Brewing in Miami stopped by Treadwell Park. To keep with the theme of the holiday we talked about what goes into starting a brewery these days. Hint: a lot of patience and hard work. 

An avid homebrewer, Marco is getting ready to open his own place and talks about his inspirations, plans for the future, and the beers that he is excited to make.

For the black glass Marco poured some faves from friends and we were the richer for it. Tune in to the episode here or wherever you get your podcasts, and let us know what you think!

Episode 228 - Jeffrey Stuffings, Jester King Brewery, is back

Jeffrey-Stuffings-Jester-King-Brewery-Featured.png

Hey Y'all. We're back in Boston for a second week. Still hungover but very excited to welcome Jeffrey Stuffings of Jester King in Texas. As the makers of some of the finer farmhouse ales and Belgian-inspired beers in the United States, we had a lot to talk about with Jeff.  From why language is important in classifying the beers he makes (and the efforts being made to get brewers and drinkers to use the right words, to his plan for the farm just outside of Austin. 

Hint: it involves wine. Double hint: Augie gets excited. You guessed it: John Holl offers a deep sigh.

For the black glass Jeff goes local and easy on us. His picks offer insight to his region and American beer in general. Tune in and let us know what you think!

Episode 227 - Charles Rapadas and Vince Quitugua, Three Chiefs Brewing

Episode 227 - Charles Rapadas and Vince Quitugua, Three Chiefs Brewing

20190810_085020.jpg

Happy Monday, Thieves! A few weeks back the folks at Trillium hosted a beer festival. Carton was invited to pour and Holl decided to tag along. Of course we used the excursion as a chance to set up insanely early in a hotel lobby to record with some folks. The day before Holl was hitting the barleywine. Augie was hosting a party in his room until the early hours. So, get ready for some hungover radio.

This week we're excited to welcome Charles Rapadas and Vince Quitugua of Three Chiefs Brewing in California. They have been making beer professionally for about a year now, but are still beer fans and enthusiasts. 

We go deep into the process of their pastry stouts, including FÄHÄ, a coconut candy stout. They shed some light on their upcoming expansion into a new space, and ways to combat fake beer. 

For the black glass these fine gentlemen went deep into their cellars and pulled out some vintage gems that were a perfect way to start the morning and then get ready for a full day of drinking. Tune in and let us know what you think!

Episode 226 - Blake Arrowood & Jake Meglio, Arrowood Farm Brewery

Episode 226 - Blake Arrowood & Jake Meglio, Arrowood Farm Brewery

16-07-28_Arrowood_0005.jpg

Happy Monday, Thieves! We're convinced Justin is working on a piece about farmhouse breweries. Maybe you've noticed that he's booked some of the better ones in the region on the show lately. We sure have. But, that's not a complaint because it means that on a day like today we get to sit down with Blake Arrowood, the namesake at the Arrowood Farm-Brewery, and brewer Jake Meglio in Accord, NY. And they are serious about brewing with what comes from their land. We talk about their 100% farm grown beer as well as the difficulties and benefits working the land bring to each pint. Make sure you visit the farm or their tasting room in New Paltz. We might just tag along with Justin as he does "field research."

Episode 225 - Travis Kauffman & Joey Pepper, Folksbier

Episode 225 - Travis Kauffman & Joey Pepper, Folksbier

_MG_8447.JPG

We love it when our friends hit the big time. For example, a few weeks ago John got an email from a fancy NYC public relations firm pitching the guys from Folksbier to come onto the show. We thought it was odd because we know Travis Kauffman and Joey Pepper pretty well. We've visited before and often drink their beer, they've been on the show before. Justin practically lives there.

So, of course we had them back on and when they brought their rep with them, we gave them the appropriate shit. All. Episode. Long. 

Of course, throughout the rest of the show, we talked about brewery growth, recipe development, and how they are big big time with public relations professionals. Tune in and let us know what you think!

Located in Berlin, Germany, Schneeeule (Pronounced: "schnee oy-la" ) is the only brewery in the world currently specializing in the production of traditional Berliner Weisse. Their signature mixed yeast culture is a blend of Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces strains from historical bottles found in friends basements, flea markets and eBay.

Hey Y'all. It's Monday at 5p.m. and we're at Treadwell Park with Joe Correia and John Dantzler of New York City's Torch & Crown Brewing. Joe may be a familiar face to some of our Garden State friends, having done a stint at Kane Brewing.

Soon, they'll open their taproom and brewpub in in SoHo (yes, you read that right, a brewery is coming to SoHo!) and we had a great time chatting business and brewing with these guys.

They brought some fun beers for Augie and John to try, including one that may be more than a little familiar to Augie. If you follow us on Untappd, you can get more information.
