#29 - Grand Canyon Summits with a PBJ Crowler

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!

#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

#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!

#19 - Gettin’ Prickly in the Desert

In this episode, we venture out with some of our Beer-Slingers into the Sonoran desert to harvest a staple late summer beer ingredient. We had such a blast with these rock stars and can't wait to do it again!

We interview DSB beer sponsored athlete Ryan Geiger about his mtb background, training, and beer drinking. The wind has many other plans :( I am still learning all about the audio side of things but the content is good.

#4 - Kahtoola Race & Bacon Porters

In this episode, we interview racers in Flagstaff's Kahtoola Uphill Race. This is one of the best event/fundraisers of the year and we wouldn't miss it for the world. Hilary Child's is the race director and is passionate about the benefit to Camp Colton, the race's fundraiser. We always try to live up to our hastag #BrewHardPlayHard. 

Then, we will listen in on some of the fun that was had as The Pig's Meow came up from the Valley to brew a Maple Bacon Porter! Yum!
We were not able to lock in any local music for this episode, bumski, so please let us know of any AZ or Flagstaff artists that would be stoked to be on the show's music showcase.
