The BMS Ep.17 - Beerfest in the Deep

October 31st, 2018


We're back, mother fuckers! Yes, we are still alive and kicking. Welcome to episode 17, Beerfest in the Deep. On this episode, we were at the San Antonio Beer Festival, which took place on Saturday, October 20th, 2018. We walked around with our handheld digital recorder and spoke to some of the industry people who were there at the festival. Originally, this was going to be a 3-4 part episode, but we did not get to talk to everybody as originally planned, and after the edits were made, I was able to put together this less than an hour long episode. After adding the Metal music, it pushed the episode to over an hour long. We really hope you enjoy this episode, as much as we enjoyed recording it.

The BMS Ep.13 - Road Rage Beer Killer

July 19th, 2018


About 2 weeks ago we took the show on the road again. We went to Houston, TX and did a few brewery visits while there. We started out at 8th Wonder Brewery, then hopped across the street to the newly opened 8th Wonder Distillery. After we left that area, we went to Town in City Brewing Company, then closed out our day at Great Heights Brewing Company. We went on a Sunday, so we needed to be picky about where we went due to hours and limitations.

The BMS Ep.12 - Boiling Beer

July 10th, 2018


Hello Beer Metal Crusaders. Welcome to episode #12 of The Beer Metal Show, a Podcast that reviews beer and pairs each beer with a Metal Connection. This week's episode is entitled "Boiling Beer!" Why, cause we're going to talk about homebrewing or the process of boiling when creating a beer...No, because it's a play on words of one of my favorite songs by the almighty God Dethroned, which is our featured band this episode.

The BMS Ep.11 - Ravenous Beer Machine

June 27th, 2018


We took our show on the road for episode #11. Recently we bought some new equipment that would help us do some different and creative things with our little show here. This episode is called "Ravenous Beer Machine" for two reasons. First, because we were out on the road to visit some breweries, and secondly because our theme song is "Ravenous War Machine" by the Norwegian Death Metal band, Blood Red Throne.

The BMS Ep.10 - Haze is Just a Four Letter Word

June 12th, 2018


We have made it to episode #10 without #1, killing each other, and #2, giving up! On this week's episode we decided to change up a bit and do a whole new format. We invited some San Antonio Craft Beer veterans for a discussion about the latest beer trends. It was our pleasure to have Blake Murrah (former HEB Grocery Beer Dept., former Southern Star Brewing Company Sales Rep), and Jeremy Banas (known for being a published writer and contributor to some well known beer magazines/websites). Mostly we give our opinions on the Haze Craze! We talk about Hazy IPA's, NEIPA's, Pastry Stouts, Glitter Beer, and all the other stupid new trends that are out there!

The BMS Ep.9 - Saison of the Wicked

May 21st, 2018


FINALLY, we have released a new episode. It has been a month since our last episode. We had to take some time off due to some family matters, but we are back, mother fuckers! Did you miss us? Yes... awesome, we love you too. No... Well, Fuck you! One thing that has not changed in this past month is that we still hate the Hazy and Milkshake IPA craze, and those stupid fuckin' small stickers they slap on the cans that they expect us to call beer labels. Fuck that!
