WILK Friday Beerbuzz – 6 Aug 2010 (Terrapin Big Hoppy Monster)

WILKFridayBerbuzz7 I mentioned in the teaser this week we had another first on the show.  Well it may not have been completely obvious, but this was the first time we welcomed a guest on the phone.  Spike was calling in from Athens GA, which is of course easy to handle on a talk radio station, but what you didn’t notice (HOPEFULLY) is that our in-studio camera isn’t wired into the audio setup.  In the studio itself it’s actually very quiet except for the people in the room talking.  All other audio such as music, commercials AND phone callers, are in our headphones only.  This made getting the phone calls onto the video a little tricky.  Hopefully no one noticed.

TerrapinBig_Hoppy_Monster Well enough technical-stuff….on to the beer.  Today we welcomed Brian “Spike” Buckowski founder and brewmaster for Terrapin Beer Co on to the show.  As you heard for yourself, Spike is a funny and interesting guy, so it’s no surprise he brews fun & interesting beers.  Today we sampled Spike’s Big Hoppy Monster.  If you haven’t tried his one get out there and try it.  This Imperial Red Ale packs a punch at 8.75% ABV and a hoppy punch at 73 IBU…and if you held on later into the show break after the Friday Beerbuzz show, I think it was obvious that everyone loved the Big Hoppy Monster.

It was a ton of fun having our long distance guest on the show with us from Athen’s GA today. 
I want to say t
hank you to Spike, John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.

  2. Thanks John...I think SPike was a lot of fun and I look forward to having him on again in the future and talking about another great Terrapin beer. Big Hoppy Monster was a wonderful BIG beer and I'd encourage everyone to get out there and chase down some Terrapin beers.
