Episode 165: You Gotta Get Drunk to Make Some Music w/ The Routine, Thunderhawk, & Amplified Ales


We finally got them on the show!  The Routine, who does all our music on the show, joins us along with folks from Thunderhawk Alements and Amplified Ale Works.  A new album from The Routine is coming out June 2nd called Puddin’.  Along with that album, The Routine collaborated with Thunderhawk and Amplified to make a new beer also called Puddin’.  That beer will be released in cans starting May 25th at both breweries.  There will a big party on June 2nd at Thunderhawk for the album release and The Routine along with IMAGINARY MACHINE and Jonny Tarr.


From the start of the show, you can tell this one will be really fun.  We are joined by Bryan Barbarin (Vocals), Russell Ramo (Guitar), Nick Hein (Bass), and Dave Butterfield (Drums) from The Routine as well as Jonathan Barbarin from Thunderhawk and Demetra Hamill from Amplified.  After the introductions, we start with the music section of this collaboration and ask the guys how the album came to be.  We then move on to the collaboration beer and talk to both brewers about their involvement in the beer.  We go in and out of many topics, not all are relevant.  After a break where we play a new, unreleased song from The Routine called Goldilocks.  When we come back we try to get more information on the beer and when it will be released.
