#27 - Blackberry picking’. - Short Trails episode

We spent two day trips down in the absolutely horendous, ugly, scary, putrid, dangerous area known as Oak Creek. Seriously, don't ever go there. It's the worst and I heard there are a group of cobras that were recently let loose down there. 

Okay, anyway, we headed down into the canyon to claw and scratch our way to the most delicious of blackberries. A great time was had and we hope to release the barrel aged beer that took in these local delights within the next 10 months.

Stay tuned after the short 10 minute episode for some (we think) funny quips that we made up on the fly while driving down the switchbacks.

Cheers ya'll

#25 - July Collaborations (Part 1)

In this first episode, we head down to Phoenix in the middle of the summer to brew with some friends and attend a tap takeover. 

Our first stop was Goldwater Brewing in Scottsdale to help them get their first kettle sour going. Then, off to The Casual Pint Ocotillo for a great patio session. 

Then it was off to B.R.I. where we were brewing our first go at the now popular, "BRUT IPA"! 

In part 2, we host Grand Canyon Brewing for a sour ale that will be showcased at Real Wild and Woody 

 

Enjoy the shinanigans!!

#23 - Short Trails - 3 Guys, 1 Grain Room, 150 points

Introducing the one and only Donny Fox! He will be joining me as co-host extrodinaire and this first little episode was rediculously fun. 

We sat down in the crowded grain room with Ryan to talk about the day's events. Lessons learned about hop residue's effect on kettle sours, our first time striking with first runnings wort, and the usual off-topic shinanigans!

Intro music by...yours truely. No joking! I'm really liking this music creation thing.

 

Anyway, thanks so much for listening, and join the conversation in the comments and on our Facebook Page

Cheers,

-N

#22 - Kick Azz Girlz of DSB (part one)

!! We couldn't be more proud, and inspired by these two wacky ladies!!

In this episode, I sit down with our brewhouse rockstars, Kristen Ewer and Tiffany Bettinger. We were drinking some brews and chatting it up for over 2 hours...so... I had to split this into two seperate episodes.

Listen in to get to know these two girls that are brewing up so much of the creativity and quality that you have grown to love from Dark Sky Brewing. 

Happy Trails and cheers to all!

#21 - Pit to Peak (In a Day)

This is kind of a "crossover" episode. It started with an idea that Andrew and I had, to undertake microadventures from Northern AZ... In a Day. This is the journey that we chose to take first.

We would head down to the bottom of Grand Canyon, the Colorado River, and then hike up to the top of Humphries Peak (12,633 ft.) within a day. How did it go? Well, have a listen!

We even had two people come to the brewery to be a part of the show! Whaaaat! 

** Go to 3 minutes in if you want to skip the silly "get it together" technical part
