    Episode 382 - Jeff Cioletti is Back (with yet another book!)































































    Happy Monday, Thieves! We’re talking to our old pal Jeff Cioletti today, who just happens to have a new book coming out in a couple of months called Imbibing for Introverts: A Guide to Social Drinking for the Anti-Social. It’s about drinking for introverts and we talk about what that means in the COVID and post-COVID era. Jeff tells us about visiting dicey bars in LA at 8am on a weekday (in the name of “research,” of course) and the types of folks you might find there. It’s a good, spirited discussion and we even have a little fun with yet another stovepipe in the black glass. Tune in and let us know what you think!

    Episode 381 - Halfway Crooks Beer, Shawn Bainbridge & Joran Van Ginderachter































































    Happy Monday, Thieves! We’re talking to Shawn & Joran of ATL’s Halfway Crooks today. These guys came on our radar last year for their lagers, but turns out they make some other killer beer too. We talk about their Belgian-inspired roots and making IPA’s with lager yeast. As well as some tomato and cycling talk, to boot. It was a fun time and we think you’ll dig it, too, so tune in here and let us know what you think!

    Episode 380 - Lew Bryson, Pocket Whiskey Peddler, is Back































































    Happy Monday, Thieves! Our friend Lew Bryson is in the B-Rizzle Mobile Zoom Studios this week chatting with us about a host of random topics. Lew and Holl were together down in DC recently and shared some fun anecdotes about cheap motel lobby drinking, "pocket whiskey," and the best cargo shorts for carrying booze around the nation's capital. It was a rollicking good time despite a miss in black glass 1. Tune in and let us know what you think!

    Episode 379 - Eric Ruta, Magnify Brewing, is Back































































    Happy Monday, Thieves! We’re talking to Eric Ruta of NJ’s Magnify Brewing today. Eric was on the show the a few years ago and a few of you thought we were unfair to him. So we’re checking in again to see how things have changed in the intervening years. We talk about the pleasures of doing fun things and ignoring the haters. For the blind glasses, Kennedy used some cheap foil which spoiled beer 1. Beer 2 was a total confusion… Tune in and let us know what you think!

    Happy Monday, Thieves! We’re talking to Ryan Gillette of NYC’s newest brewery, Belse NYC. Belse is a vegan restaurant that occupies the former Paulaner space on the Bowery. Ryan talks to us about his journey to Belse, includes stints at Keegan Ales, New Belgium, Trillium, and a few other places, and about what it’s like brewing for a vegan-focused restaurant group. We had a ton of fun chatting and I think you’ll dig it. Oh, and Kennedy nailed it with the black glasses once again. Tune in and let us know what you think!

dry hopper ,

NY sports radio, but for beer

Augie Carton is the Mike Francesca of Jamil Zainisheffs. And much like drive-time NY sports radio, it’s compelling to listen to, whether you love it or hate it. 5 stahs

Amicus Brief ,

Staycation Companion

It’s great to invite John and Augie, Brian and Cass (and their guests) into my day every Monday for an often irreverent, ever amusing discussion of all things beer.

GMoomey ,

As it were!

My weekly, slightly inebriated, masterclass in beer tasting! Love hearing the brewers chop it up about ingredients and processes. I listen for John Holl to say "as it were" (on all his podcasts) lol!!! I think he needs to do a new podcast by that title and just talk about whatever. Then he'll have 15 podcasts that he hosts. Keep up the good work, y’allz!
