What's up Brew Trails fans! This episode is a little more on the "Trails" side. I venture into The Canyon with a PBJ Time Crowler in tow and attempt to snag two summits on the Eastern side of GCNP. This is not something that I recommend people do as it require a lot of knowledge about off-trail orientation, emergency supplies, and technical climbing skills.
On the way, I relied heavily on Kahtoola micro-spikes, a local Flagstaff business, as well as give some shout outs to SMR Outdoor gear and Justin Cross of Earn Your Booze!
I hope you enjoy this fun little adventure 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.
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!!
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!
This episode is the audio of my LIVE interview with Andy Schlicker. He and his partners, Michael Figueira and Sam Kroack, are currently putting together Harbottle Brewing Company (formerly FLUX brewing) in Tucson. We discuss his brewing backgrowund, what his brewery is going to be all about, and get a little into the collaboration beer that we brewed this year.
Enjoy the fun! It is a long interview but if you are into the craft beer scene here in AZ, especially down south, you'll love hearing about what will surely be a huge success in 2017!
Please share this podcast with all of your beer/adventure loving friends and continue to give us suggestions on who/what/ect to do next.
