Craft Beer Reviews with a Metal Connection!

The BMS Ep.8 - A Craft Beer for the Damned

April 19th, 2018


This is Episode #8, the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin' Metal. A Craft Beer for the Damned is the title of this episode and is a play on the song title, A Curfew for the Damned by the mighty Edge of Sanity from Sweden. One of my favorite Death Metal bands. On this episode we have four amazing beers that we dissected and devoured for your listening pleasure. On day 1 we went with Austin's Hops & Grain Brewing Chingona, a 5.2% Lager with an amazing story behind the beer and Nomad Brewing Co. from Australia with their Freshie Salt & Pepper, a 4.5% Gose brewed with seawater, Tasmanian pepper berries, and coriander. On day 2 we dove right into a Stone Brewing collaboration beer called Neapolitan Dynamite, an 8.5% Imperial Stout brewed with chocolate, vanilla, strawberries and coffee, and we finished off the this episode with Thin Mint Stout, a 9.4% Sweet Stout brewed with mint, Madagascar vanilla, and dark chocolate malt by Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. from Houston, TX.

There are some amazing Metal Connections this episode, which includes songs by Derkéta, Exodus, Pink Cream 69, and Primitive Man.

Featured Band: Edge of Sanity

The BMS Ep.7 - Craft Beer is Forever

April 7th, 2018


 This is Episode #7, the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin' Metal. It was Easter Sunday, and we found ourselves read to drink some beer, after we had a family lunch at my mother's house. Usually, we try to drink the beers reviewed separately throughout the week, so we don't get too trashed, but we said "Fuck it, let's drink all 4 beers today!"

Here we are with part 2 of the TUPPS Brewery Experience. The last 3 beers of this variety 6-pack are reviewed in this episode. Excellent Metal Connections as usual with these three.

As much as we praise TUPPS  Brewery for being an awesome place with good beers, we had some mishaps with these three beers while recording this episode.

Recently, they have opened distribution here in San Antonio, TX with their 6-pack variety box. In this episode, we reviewed the first 3 beers from this box, Day Off Kölsch, Texas Shade Wheat, and Cotton Mill Gold Pale Ale. There are excellent Metal Connections, as usual.

The BMS Episode 1: Craft Beer Reviews + Extreme Metal

December 8th, 2017


In late October 2017, a new idea came to mind. This idea was to put my reviews up in a podcast. I purchased some inexpensive equipment to start off with, since I am a cheap mother fucker, and I am good at making cheap shit work like luxurious shit! It was definitely a lot easier to talk about a beer over a microphone rather than typing out what I was trying to say in paragraph form for the blog. I will still put up a written review here and there for those that are not reviewed on the podcast, but majority of my beer reviews will now be talked about. I hope you still follow my Craft Beer & Metal journey, and click the link to the podcast. Please share it, comment, like it, all that good shit.
