A Cold One w/The Cold One E.30: Chomp N’ Swig, San Francisco, CA


For episode 30, brought to you by RiptApparel.com, I decided to do something I rarely do; do the episode with someone I have never met in person! The stranger this time is Gordon, the Northern California beer rep for the Coronado Brewing Company! I gave him free reign on where to meet and he chose the rad, small bar and restaurant Chomp N’ Swig in San Francisco! We chatted it up about numerous topics, from sports, to categories of brewing companies, Jack In The Box munchie meals, the World Beer Cup, and of course some drinking stories! Do yourself a favor and grab a cold one and enjoy Episode 30!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.28: Kona Brewing Company, Honolulu, HI


A trip to Hawaii is not complete without a visit to arguably the number one brewery in the state, and so we went to the Kona Brewing Company for Episode 28 (brought to you by Beardhead.com and RiptApparel.com). Joining me this episode is the mother of my soon to be born nephew, Cynthia! Naturally we talked about our day out at Hanauma Bay, potential baby names, and Cynthia gets to stand by and watch me drink all of my delicious beer while she is reduced to drinking milkshake!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.27: Paradise Cove Luau, Kapolei, HI


The whole reason for this Hawaiian vacation is to celebrate my future mother-in-law Doris’ birthday, and in Episode 27 (sponsored by Ript Apparel and Moose Stache Wax) that is exactly what we are doing! No first time vacation to Hawaii is complete without attending a luau, so we decided to take Doris to the west coast of Oahu to the Paradise Cove Luau in Kapolei! In this episode we talk about some of the vacation highlights including our impromptu making of a music video to Nicki Minaj’s song “Anaconda.” I also tell the story of when the Ice Queen and I met the super diva. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a nice tropical drink (or a beer of course) and take in the luau experience with us and hit play!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.26: Eternity Beach, Honolulu, HI


We head to Hawaii for episode 26 (Brought to you by RiptApparel.com and Moose Stache Wax)! I am joined by my future brother-in-law for a fun day of beach drinking and site seeing! Although we didn’t know the name of the beach we were on while there, a simple google search told me we were at Eternity Beach, just outside Honolulu! If you ever head over to the island of Oahu, I highly recommend finding this beach (and bringing along a cold one or two)!

It is a little hike down to the private beach, but well worth it!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.25: Fanny Anns Saloon, Sacramento, CA


If you were hoping for someone to bust my balls, you came to the right place! Episode 25, brought to you by RiptApparel.com and The Old Familiar Comb Company, features my very beautiful fiance the Ice Queen (her take on me being my name being “The Cold One AC”). Trust me, her nickname is fitting! Hahaha. She has never before ever wanted to go on air with me, but after I did an Irish car bomb with her, she opened up to the idea and let me press record! In this episode we went to Fanny Anns Saloon, a five-story bar in Old Town Sacramento. This bar is pretty rad with tons of stuff to look at all over the place, including a horse drawn carriage hanging from the ceiling! Do yourself a favor, crack open a cold one, sit back, relax, and enjoy listening to my beautiful fiance lay into me!
