Greg and Hooker continue the recording day by serving up a second episode.  After recording the show with Bine and Vine, we had on a special guest.  In this episode we interview Jenny Seaboldt from Brew-It-Yourself and talk about how homebrewers can brew without having to buy equipment and take up space in their apartment or house.  Brew-It-Yourself allows you to brew at Helm’s Brewing Co. but the nice part is BIY will have the grains, hops, yeast, and equipment easy for you when you get there.

BIY’s next session is on October 18th, 2014 and they are brewing up a 10-gallon all-grain Pale Ale.  You can buy tickets here:

These events are great for a bachelor party, bachelorette party, a date out with a significant other, or just to have fun with a bunch of cool people.  BIY will even store the carboy when it ferments and help you bottle it up when it’s ready for bottle conditioning.

Interview:

This interview is a little different.  For the most part Hooker and Jenny take the reins and talk a little bit about homebrewing and how you can homebrew without the need of buying your own equipment.  However this show, like some in the past, goes a little off track.  The girls talk about how to keep your feet dry and clean, talk about childbirth, and something about sister-wives???  I pretty much sit back and try to ask pertinent questions.  You’ve been warned!

Episode #5: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop

Greg and Hooker (who was supposed to be MIA) talk to an honest, amazing craft beer entrepreneur.  We interview Geoi Bachoua of Bine & Vine Bottle Shop.  This is a premiere bottle shop in the Normal Heights area of San Diego.  To help out with this episode I asked a few San Diego craft beer experts to join us.  We are joined by Cody Thompson from the Three B Zine podcast and blog and Brian from Sore Eye Sports and the Sore Eye Cup Awards.  That’s a ton of San Diego craft beer knowledge at one table.

Interview:

We talk about how Geoi got started and how he has become one of the best places to go for great craft beer from all over the world.  You will hear his passion and find he sticks to his morals about his shop and his beer.  You might also notice that there is something in this episode that you haven’t heard before.  Yes, this is the first podcast where I have beeped the audio.  No, you still have all the cussing you are used to, but let’s just say that what I bleeped is because there is a certain brewery that might take offense to what we were talking about.  You can go ahead and guess all you want, I will not reveal the secret.  Craft beer is not all smiles and unicorns, it is a business after all.  So we had to keep the name off the show to protect the innocent from possible repercussions.  Other than that this is just like any other show, lots of good beer knowledge and lots of side conversation.
