For episode 33 (brought to you by Opie’s Gourmet STACKED Burgers) I traveled down to San Diego to Petco Park (or as I like to call it South San Francisco because of how there are always more Giants fans there than Padres fans) for a division rivalry game pitting the beloved defending world champion San Francisco Giants versus the meh San Diego Padres! This was my first time ever in this stadium and there was a lot to see there, including their beer garden and the numerous food spots attached to the stadium! Derek, a long time friend of the Ice Queen (my wife), joins me for this episode, and the ballgame. Grab yourself a cold one, crack it open, and enjoy this brand new episode!

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!

I’m Back with Episode 29 (brought to you by RiptApparel.com)! My wedding just wrapped up and I still had some family and friends in town that wanted to take in the sites of the Bay Area. One of the main touristy stops that we generally take people to is Pier 39 in San Francisco. While on the pier we decided to go beer hunting and came across Mangos Taqueria and Cantina, and we got adventurous trying drinks that we have never tried before; Indio Beer and Micheladas! In this episode Heather and I chat it up about numerous topics including the new tourist attraction The San Francisco Dungeon, beer, other touristy stuff, and yeah….BEER! Go ahead, hit play, and make your ear holes happy!

This episode (sponsored by Ript Apparel and Pabst Blue Ribbon) takes place in a car just outside of Kearney, Nebraska, during day 3 of my cross country road trip moving Mary and two small dogs from California to North Carolina. Mary is nearly 80-years-old and I have known her for all of my life and is basically my grandmother. Amongst the topics at hand are me trying to explain to her what a podcast is, what we think of the states we had driven through already, and the real highlight of the trip which was how we tried to get out of a speeding ticket! Grab yourself a cold one, sit back, relax, and enjoy episode 19!

Here is that top shelf drink I had!
When friends come to visit from out of town, lets face it, you get stuck doing touristy stuff. Luckily for me, I had work during the morning so I got to skip seeing everything for the 100th time. My friends Jellson and his fiance Rovina (the one you keep hearing in the background maybe making a statement that she wants to be guest on her own episode) are in town and we hit up Players on Pier 39 in San Francisco to grab some food and drinks. Amongst the topics of conversation are touristy things, things wrapped in bacon, boom boom, and so much more packed into just under five and a half minutes! Grab a cold one and enjoy episode 17, brought to you by Pabst Blue Ribbon!
