It’s summer in Florida, which means it’s officially hot as balls… minus the brew. We put our heads together and conjured up a scheme to beat the heat with ice cream… while still drinking beer. Just imagine if we used our powers for good instead of evil?
It’s been months since we last caught up with Robb and sampled some of his delicious brew. Time to remedy that and get the lowdown on the happenings at Grindhaus from the man himself.
It’s virtually impossible to be a Bay Area craft beer fan/enthusiast/drunkard and not know who Bob Sylvester is. In this segment we drink da funk out of Tarpon Springs and get the story behind each selection. Named after all family members (including their 3-legged cat) and even including a touch of their own likes, Bob knows how to make a Belgian malt and wheat, whole noble hops and open fermentation ales. He brews simply and authentically, the way beer was brewed 100 years ago… green bottle extra credit too!
It’s virtually impossible to be a Bay Area craft beer fan/enthusiast/drunkard and not know who Bob Sylvester is. The purveyor of funk, Mr. Sylvester is to the Tampa craft beer scene what George Clinton is to music. Awful beer analogies aside, put simply, Mr. Sylvester is ready to put One Nation Under a Groove and we’re ready to join his Parliament. Saint Somewhere describes themselves as a brewery of traditional Belgian style ales using only the finest ingredients available. To everyone else, they’re farmhouse saisons done right. Testify!
Leaven Brewing’s Company co-owner Jillian Lynch is part of a dynamic duo that’s taking over craft beer in southeast Hillsborough County. When she’s not crushing it on social media (honored to be day 304), you might find her wielding power tools and tearing up flooring at Leaven Brewing Co, your newly appointed Riverview craft beer headquarters!
We feel like you’ve heard this before. A kick ass and experienced husband & wife brewing team relocate to a quaint market (Riverview this time) with a goal to start their own commercial brewery, build it from the ground up with their own bare hands and are crushing it right out of the gate!! Yes, it’s true. This time it’s KJ & Jillian Lynch at Leaven Brewing Co, your newly appointed Riverview craft beer headquarters! All Cheeky Blondes better recognize. Just sayin’.
In the last segment with Christina & Billy from 4 The Love of Libations we talk everything we can think of: sports, Star Wars, Lightning hockey, death pools and even some past interviews. It was a pleasure combining our show with them and recommend you check them out online!
Christina & Billy from 4 The Love of Libations brought some NEIPAs and so did we… and then we drank them on the air (I know, total shocker!) in a blind taste test. Our local Good Liquid Brewing went up against Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada and Lord Hobo. Curious to find out who won?
Well, we took Christina and Billy from 4 The Love of Libations up on their offer and did our own version of a ménage à trois… podcast style. She calls it a “Ponage A Trois” and we’re calling it a “Podcast A Trois.” Either way it was huge fun, as expected!
