As some of you may have noticed, I was out of town last week, and alas the deep south doesn’t appear to get Rock 107. No I didn’t have access to listen on-line so I thought this week we’d catch up and post two weeks of CBG shows. Thankfully the guys made it easy on me because today’s Jim Koch “Sammosa” show was a rerun from last year.
It was tremendous surprise and compliment to hear the guys mention the mybeerbuzz “Hoppler Radar” T-Shirts…and yes these are an original design I did for myhopart.com. It was also wonderful to hear mention of one of my first and favorite breweries, Weeping Radish. This was one of the first craft beers I started really enjoying and one we try to visit every year on vacation...
Today’s (or should I say last Friday’s) beer of the day was Duck Rabbit Porter. This is also a North Carolina brewery like Weeping Radish and a favorite of mine as well. I’ve always enjoyed the rorschach, “is it a duck or is it a rabbit” label, but didn’t realize it was a connection to the Duck Rabbit master brewer’s past career.
Very educational show guys. I feel smarter already, but I’ve now perhaps disturbed the delicate “smarts vs dumbs” brain balance I’ve been working so hard to maintain. I suddenly feel like calculating the number of radians in a semi-circle. Clearly the “smarts” in my system are too high…but the good news is that it’s Friday. I hate to do it but I guess I’m going to have to burn a few brain cells tonight, purely for scientific purposes to get the “dumbs” back in balance.
Cheers and Pi to all…Clicky HERE for the podcast.
