In the latest episode of the Tap Takeover Podcast, the boys are back for a very special installment of the Brewery Interview Series! Henry Schwartz, owner of Mobcraft Brewing, is taking over the taps this week. And we could alternately call this episode the “sour hour,” as Henry attempts to take us to sour Jesus with his limited release Existence Sour Ale (aged three ways)! Jim gets to nerd out about yeasts and bacteria, we tackle the shark tank experience, discuss rude beer name suggestions, and delve into some of the crazier concoctions dreamt up by the imaginative clientele of this crowd-sourced brewery. Plus, in our second half, Henry attempts to drop more breaking news than we can contain in one podcast! Cheers to the Sours!
Welcome to the 3rd Episode of the Tap Takeover Podcast! This one is going to get epic in the Solid Non Fail Studio. Alex and Andy recount their Beercation to Michigan in December for the Dark Horse 4 Elf party, as well as stops at Bell’s, the Livery, and even some Odd Side Ales thrown in for good measure. Jesus and Jim join in for the fun and an extensive tasting of Bourbon Barrel Aged Stouts, Maple Porter, Triple Weizenbock, and Russian Imperial Barley Wine Stout. 18 beers in all! Grab a cold beverage and join us for an adventure as we take a walk down memory lane, as well as a step into the future of barrel-aged beers. Cheers!

The boys at the Tap Takeover Podcast welcome you into the Solid Non Fail Studio to have a beer and enjoy Episode 2! We continue our Brewery Interview Series with a special conversation with Jim McCabe, owner of Milwaukee Brewing Company. Loads to talk about as we do a live tasting at the brewery, get into the barrel-aging program which has won several awards in recent years, delve into the challenges of expanding brewery operations, and we get to know Jim McCabe – the brewer and the beer lover. And did we mention a Fire Truck?! So pour yourself a Gin-Barrel Aged O-Gii (aka NOT Godzilla), or a Brandy-Barrel Aged Louie’s Resurrection, and come join us for an adventure into Beer Craft.
A quick two-minute preview of Episode 2 from the Tap Takeover Podcast dropping on Wednesday 1/25/17! Amazing interview with owner of Milwaukee Brewing Company Jim McCabe, plus lots of tastings and barrel-aging discussions. Cheers!
In Episode 2, we interview Jim McCabe, Founder, CEO and Chief Bottlewasher of Milwaukee Brewing Company. We talk all things MKE and of course taste a few beers including the Gin Barrel aged O-Gii.
Episode 1 of the Tap Takeover Podcast is live!
We here at the Solid Non Fail Studio are so very honored and excited to bring you the first episode in our brand new podcast series. With a focus on the Craft Brewing Industry, we begin our beer odyssey with an exclusive interview with Russ Klisch, the president of Lakefront Brewing in Milwaukee, WI. A true innovator of beer styles, Russ is responsible for many of the cutting edge new trends in the brewing industry over the past 2 decades.
The boys will be doing a vertical tasting of the 2013, ’14, ’15, & ’16 Black Friday beers. And we’ll pick Russ’ brain about the “My Turn” one-off series, the cellar-aging process, the “next generation” of beers coming to 2017, and new technologies in beer-tasting using the Fizzics Draft Beer system. We’ve got some attempts at “gotcha journalism,” as well as some teasers for next year’s Black Friday series, and even a bit of Breaking News. Cheers and Enjoy!
A preview of things to come…
And a challenge to Takeover our Taps with your ideas and suggestions. Our first episode will drop this Wednesday 1/11/17. Stay tuned…
Cheers from the Tap Takeover Podcast!
