E05 Honey Sucklin w/Mike Gifford, Beekeeping and Belgian Ales



An #EarthDay podcasts featuring Honey Bees, Pig Minds, Ommegang Game of Thrones, Rochefort 10 … and 5 Yard Load meets The Last Vegas

HBRS-e5-GIFF-5Listen in on Brent, Mike and Kent as they spend some time with Mike Gifford (Forest City Brewers) talking beekeeping, brewing (and tasting) Belgian style ales and discussing why there’s so many varieties of honey (even marijuana honey).

The show delves into earthy subjects as the boys taste an assortment of well-aged Belgian beers from the likes of Ommegang, Trappiste Rochefort 10, St.Bernardus Abt 12, Pig Minds Brewing Co. Belgian Golden Ale and guest brewer Giff’s 4 year old belgian home brew. Giff shares a clone attempt from harvesting Bell’s Hopslam yeast, Kent talks about brewing with New Zealand hops and Mike shares some “buzzy” wisdom from none other than Albert Einstein. The show features cuts from an old 5 Yard Load record and we discuss other music from The Last Vegas, Name the Moon and Mana Kintorso.
