    We’re back in the heart of one of Jungle Jim’s famous beer festivals again, and things are big, dark and boozy for this one!  Craft Beer Joe joined me at the Barrel Aged Beer Bash to talk about Barrel Aged Beer, and what exactly that means for your tastebuds.  The definition of what a Barrel […] The post Volume 3, Episode 25 – The Barrel Aged Brew Bash or a Barrel Aged Brewcast Bash? appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome
  • Vol 03 – Episode 24 – Drinking In The Studio With Garrett Hickey
    There is always something really fun about doing a show ‘In Studio’ (and you’re going to see more of these in 2018 as I complete construction on the new Cincy Brewcast studios) it brings back the fun that some of the early shows had, where you never really knew what beers you’d be drinking.  This […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 24 – Drinking In The Studio With Garrett Hickey appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome
  • Vol 03 – Episode 23 – Urban Artifact’s Spontaneously Fermented Christmas Show
    Let’s get it out of the way right off the top, I know.  This is the least Christmasy Christmas show that we’ve ever done.  I have taken the liberty to assume that I know you guys as an audience, though.  This topic is too fun to not let it take center stage, even with the […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 23 – Urban Artifact’s Spontaneously Fermented Christmas Show appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome
  • Vol 03 – Episode 22 – Getting To Know Rolling Mill Brewing Company
    I hope that you’ve been watching the folks up in Middletown’s Rolling Mill Brewing Company, because as 2017 starts to wind down they’re kicking things into high gear and hoping to have their doors open before the new year.  When I first wrote about the brewery they were still working on getting the space ready, […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 22 – Getting To Know Rolling Mill Brewing Company appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

  • Vol 03 – Episode 19 – The West Side Brewcast
    You’ve heard it said before – “people on the west side only drink Bud Light”.  We spent this episode proving what not only is that not true, but why people on the west side now have a brewery offering up some of the best beer that has been available on that side of town in […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 19 – The West Side Brewcast appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome
  • Vol 03 – Episode 18 – 16 Lots, Mason’s First Brewery.
    I love seeing new brewery’s open, and love it even more when they are located in areas that I feel are desperate for a place of their own.  Mason is exactly one of those places.  The city of Mason is a great place, with a ton of history that gets overlooked, but it feels like […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 18 – 16 Lots, Mason’s First Brewery. appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    We’ve done three shows now at Streetside, ranging from a pretty standard ‘Getting To Know You’ show back in December, to a really crazy one during their first can release of ‘Suh, Brah’ – which saw us setting up a table literally in the line that morning to do a show.  It seems that no […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 15 – Streetside’s Anniversary Party appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    What’s been happening since we were last at Listermann Brewing Company?  The short of it is a LOT.  We last broadcast from the Listermann taproom in June of 2015, and since then it’s nearly tripled in size – gained a proper bar that makes the old one look like a toy.  An indoor beer garden […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 14 – Live From Listermann, The Return. appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    I have a love for Jungle Jim’s, both from the Brewcast’s perspective (we’ve been there a few times for live shows now) and from a beer drinker’s perspective.  It’s a store that is unlike any other – especially if you’re looking for somewhere to buy some beer.  In addition to them being a fantastic, world […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 13 – The Jungle Jim’s Buckeye Beer Bash appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    We’ve talked before about Bad Tom Smith – actually, I love talking about them. (You can read some of the posts I’ve written about the brewery to get a better idea why).

    This was originally recorded as a live broadcast with Cincinnati’s GCCBS facebook group to prepare the world for the much anticipated Blue Melvin bottle release at Fifty West, but as these things tend to go, the conversation was just too fantastic to have it only live inside of a live video, I knew that eventually […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 09 – Blue Melvin Pre-Release Chat appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    Braxton Brewing Company opened up their second location, and they did it in a way that is unheard of here in Cincinnati.  They didn’t go bigger, they went smaller, purchasing the old Ei8ht Ball space located inside the party source.  What sort of show would this be if we didn’t get them to sit down […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 07 – Braxton Labs, It’s Braxton…But Very Different appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome

    I love watching new brewery’s as they open up.  It’s fascinating to see the different approaches that each of them take with their opening strategies, and March First certainly had one that had everyone on their toes.  March First is a brewery that didn’t put much out there until there was beer ready to leave […] The post Vol 03 – Episode 03 – March First Brewing appeared first on The Gnarly Gnome
