E12 Home Brew Clubs w/Mike Sears, 3 Floyds, Toppling Goliath, Pig Minds


1-e12-groupshot

This podcast episode is all about Home Brew Clubs with an intimate interview with Mike Sears, President and veteran home brewer with the Forest City Brewers. We cover our “Real or Fake” segment with Home Brew Club Names (how good are you?) and drink some tasty craft beers from the likes of 3 Floyds, Toppling Goliath and Pig Minds Brewing Co., as well as a special home brews from a 3 year old barrel-aged home brew collaboration and a haze-bent New England IPA.

Eric Jonson sits in to lead our Brewers Talk segment, putting the screws to Mike Sears with some home brew club history and retrospect for how to keep your club relevant, passionate and fun! All while we sip on Toppling Goliath Rover Truck Oatmeal Stout, Pig Minds Talk is Cheap Citra PA (an ode to NYC Ska band The Toasters) and followed by a tasting of 3 Floyds massive hopped Arctic Panzer Wolf…an Imperial IPA with killer artwork from  Tim Lehi.

All this and more accompanied by samples of fresh tracks from Rockford-based musician Micky Rosenquist. DRINK IT UP!
