Big Beach Brewing
Big Beach Brewing's growler in its natural element - the outdoors.

Spring is in the air, and we're thinking about the great outdoors.

So what better way to celebrate the mild weather with a coastal brewery?

Big Beach Brewing Company from Gulf Shores, Alabama, joined us for this episode. We talked to head brewer Rod Murray and co-owner Jim Schamburger about their craft beer journey, the differences in brewing beer for the beach crowd, and their rapid growth over the year.

We also had Brandon King in studio. He's one of the minds behind two great craft beer destinations - The Stout Brothers / Smyrna Beer Market and The Nest restaurant in Kennesaw. We talked beer, barbecue...and their anniversary party that will feature such things as smoked alligator.

Truck and Tap Beers of the Week:

We're talking craft beer, Marietta (Georgia) style with Ironmonger Brewing's owner David Sheets and new head brewer Barron Sluder. 

Also, we talk Georgia SB85 and more!

Feb 11, 2017

In this episode, we talk to Mike Castagno, the brand new head brewer at the iconic Decatur brewpub, Twain's. 

We also have Twain's owners (and brothers) Ethan and Uri Wurtzel on the show, talking about Twain's past 21 years in Decatur and how they've had to adapt and change to compete in the great craft beer market in that city. 

Tim gives us an update on SB85, and we'll talk about an Atlanta brewery making a cameo appearance during the Super Bowl! 

Next week, Ironmonger Brewing will join us in the studios. As always, drink local, and cheers!

Feb 4, 2017

A busy week! 

Not only is there some important football game going on this Sunday (#RISEUP), we invited a veritable plethora of guests on the show. 

Nancy Palmer of the Georgia Craft Brewer's Guild joined us on the exciting news about SB 85 - a bill that would actually (*gasp*) allow brewers to sell beer (wait for it...) at the brewery! Regardless, this is great news for Georgia's beer community. This bill, a compromise between the Guild and distributors, would allow:

  • Breweries to sell up to 3,000 barrels of beer made on premises, by the glass and up to one case per customer. Read more details here

In studio? We had a little change of pace. Tony Jones and Ian Flom from Mercier Orchards took a trip down from Blue Ridge to talk all things cider. We were able to talk about the history of Mercier Orchards and cider, as well as the process for making it. 

Also, we talked to Matt Leff of Nuit Belge. Coming to Atlanta's The Foundry At Puritan Mill, Nuit Belge combines some amazing chefs with Belgian (and Belgian-inspired) beers. It's coming up on Feb. 25, and if you use the promo code BGR10, you'll get $10 off the ticket! Tickets and details here

Truck and Tap's Beer of the Week

Well, OK. Ciders of the week. Including: 

  • Mercier Orchards Grumpy Granny, made from Granny Smith apples
  • Rock Steady Red, a cider blended with strawberries
  • Black Bee, made from Arkansas Black apples and clover honey
  • Old #3, made from Gold Rush apples

Coming up next week? Back to the beer, as we talk to the folks behind the iconic Decatur spot Twain's Brewpub & Billiards and new head brewer Mark Castagno joins us, among others. In the meantime, drink local...and Cheers!
