The Indie Beer Show – Episode 17: Gordon Biersch

What a pleasure it was to sit down with long time friend of The Show, Doug Hasker, Brewmaster of Gordon Biersch San Diego! The SD lager king did not disappoint; we had a terrific time hanging out with this extremely pleasant gentleman and drinking the fruits of his labor.

If your ears hear what my ears hear, you’ll be captivated by the ease of Doug’s story telling, pumped up by some of his more eloquent answers, like “No?!”, and be delighted to listen to someone pronounce Reinheitsgebot properly! This episode brings you education, history, quality beverages (ok, we got the good end of the stick on this one), and insights into GB that you cannot possibly imagine.

As usual, we try some beers, break down some of the latest beer news, and most importantly, like it says right there on our About Us page, have fun! We know your fridge is full of the best indie beer available, so why not Bird Box Challenge it and drink whatever beer your outreached, waiving hand finds first?!

Side note: Most of our traffic is through Itunes, which is awesome; if you’re one of those amazing listeners, please review our show, it really helps us out!

The Indie Beer Show – Episode 16: The Indie Beer Show For Breakfast

Sometimes the universe sees fit to allow an opening in the dynamic schedules of our colleges to coalesce with ours, at the exact moment in time for greatness to happen! I’m very grateful the infinite wisdom of the powers that be graced us with such an occasion last Wednesday night at Latchkey Brewing. Thank you once again to Latchkey for allowing us to record at their place!

On this show, we are joined by Danielle and Abel from Beer For Breakfast on 91X! It was delightful hanging out with these perennial supporters of the San Diego craft beer industry. Abel does drop a bummer of an update in there but there’s also a lot of laughter.

This is the type of show that reminds me how special the SD beer community is; I’ve never been invited by another contractor to collaborate on a home remodeling project, for example. There’s several options for your indie/craft beer radio and podcasting needs here and it’s really awesome that we’re all friends.

That delightful beer in your fridge isn’t going to drink itself, go get it, and hit the play button!

The Indie Beer Show – Episode 14: 2018, It’s Over!

It’s the end of 2018! Whether you’re on the woo or boo side of this year coming to its inevitable conclusion, there’s nothing you can do to stop it!

We brought on some friends of the show, Travis Hudson, Beth Demmon, and Ian Cheesman to discuss the main happenings in San Diego #indiebeer for the year. Brandon Hernandez is back in his hosting chair and we give him a proper introduction!

The discussion weaves through brewery closings, major expansions, openings, and we talk about our Top 3 beer events of the year!

It’s a time for reflection and pondering on the occurrences of 2018, with a positive eye on the future. I/we are remarkably lucky to have and thankful for all of you! Without the incredible support of our Patrons and the San Diego indie beer industry and community we would not have been able to start TIBS! I’m astonished with how well the new show has commenced and have an extraordinarily positive viewpoint of the future of the show. The addition of David, and now Brandon, has felt natural and inevitable. Will we reach our full potential? Probably not, but the future sure feels bright over here at The Indie Beer Show! We wish you Happy Holidays and hope 2019 brings you laughter and positivity!
