    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 345-Pubcast 345 - It's Not All Green For The Irish!

    "It's Brother Chimp Brewing in the house, as we welcome Steve Newman and Jessica Voigt to the pub studio. They bring samples of their Irish Red and Irish Dry Stout which we are putting up against Church Street's Crimson Clover, and Buffalo Creek's Burning Red, plus two classic Irish stouts. And all this goes to show that not all beer will be green as we provide some suggestions on what you might want to drink this coming March 17! Slante!

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 344-Doris and Rick Kennay of Kennay Farms Distilling

    "Continuing our periodic series of podcasts of Illinois farm-to-breweries, The Brit and Ken McMullen head west on I-88 to Rochelle IL, where they visit Kennay Farms Distillery and Brewery. This is a step into the unknown for the team as the craft beer aspect plays second fiddle to the distilling operation, but as they brew craft beer as well, we make sure we sample a small selection of what they have on offer. Doris and Rick Kennay head up this family business which is just starting to produce a variety of spirits, some of which won't be ready for another 2 or 3 years, so you have to have a lot of patience in this business! It is a unique environment as the location is a re-purposed theater, so if you feel like a couple of drinks up in the balcony, this is just the place to come. It's a fascinating story that Rick and Doris have to tell, so grab your favorite hooch and listen in! Cheers!

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 343-The Wiz at 93 Octane Brewing

    "It's a visit to the latest of the breweries to open in the Fox Valley area, 93 Octane in St. Charles. The Brit heads over to the taproom and chats at the bar with head brewer Nick 'Wiz' Wisniewski and brewery director, Chris Peckat. We find out that their tap population has rapidly expanded since they opened their doors in November, and there are brews for all tastes available. The Alt beer hits a note with The Brit, but the stouts are also high on the must-taste list. Listen in and hear how these guys are making an impression on the western suburb craft beer scene! Cheers!!

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 341-Werk Force Brewing Does It The Wright Way

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 341-Werk Force Brewing Does It The Wright Way

    "The podcast is starting out 2020 with a bang with the year's first brewery recording and what a superstar bumper edition we have in store!! One of the brewery teams that we've long admired are the husband and wife team of Brandon and Amanda Wright, and the excellent brewing powerhouse that is Werk Force. This week we got that chance, and Ken McMullen and The Brit headed to the Plainfield taproom for an afternoon of conversation. We also get a bonus from Brandon's Banjo picking, as he plays us the music for our segment breaks...an exclusive first for this podcast that is sure to have record producers cocking an ear once they hear the tunes, but we're not sure if it will be toward or away! There's a guest appearance by Erik Pizer, who has time on his hands while his new brewery, Milk Money, is in the build-out phase. There are extended discussions on 2019 styles, what 2020 may bring, the hard seltzer craze, the pricing of beer, adding CBD, and many more. Cheers!

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 340-Past and Future with the Midwest Brew Review

    Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 340-Past and Future with the Midwest Brew Review

    "We have a special edition for the first show of 2020, and the podcast crew of The Brit, Ken McMullen and Chuck Fort welcome a trio of craft beer media chums when the Midwest Brew Review lads visit the pub studios. MBR is Matt Psenika, Bill Nauss, and Brian Nauss and their video channel is available on YouTube. Each panelist brings along a brew of their choice, perhaps one that had an impact on them in 2019, or perhaps one that will be a favorite into 2020, and we chat about how 2019 went, and what the future holds. The MBR team tell us about how they got into video brew reviews, and their interest in home brewing that exists today. Talk! They never stop! Cheers!!

Good Information and Laughs

The Pubcast is really fun. The guys really know their beer. Years and years of practice, I assume!

I LOVE THIS PODCAST!!!

I love listening to this podcast, it is very entertaining and I always feel like I have been on a visit with good friends after listening. Phil and Lingo have a great chemistry and they interact as only good friends can. I like listening to shows from the basement bar as well as the visits to breweries and festivals. Could I complain about one thing that I would like to see improved? I would like to hear LOTS more adventures from the Brit and Yankee!! Thanks guys for being awesome!!!!

Why is it when I listen to Phil and Lingo I always wind up craving a tall, cold beer? Check these guys out for a lot of fun with food, drink, and much more!
