“Did they get you to trade, Your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? Did you exchange, A walk-on part in the war, For a leading role in a cage?” Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd
Greetings and welcome to HomeBrew RockStars Episode 81 “Wish You Were Beer”. In this installment we have our old friend and past Forest City Brewers President, Joe Mongan call in. Joe is now a resident of Gator Country a.k.a. Florida. Since packing it up and leaving the state of Illinois (lucky SOB) Joe has been busy! He has set up his home brewery, formed a home brew club in the retirement community, The Villages and had his almost famous F-Bomb IPA brewed at one of the area breweries… Whew, he’s been busy.
While visiting with Joe we sampled some fine beer. From one of our sponsors, Urban Forest we quaffed a chocolate porter named Sock Monkey which is nod to the stuffed toy originating in Rockford IL . A tasty roasty and chocolaty brew with a 6.4% ABV, well done Alex and Heath! We then turned our tastebuds to a brew that we talked about on Episode-77 Why Dr. Villa Brews with Cannabis. This was the Belgian Wit named Grainwave, an alcohol-free beer with 5mg of THC from CERIA Brewing. Nice job Keith!
If any of you listeners have a home you want to have the guys sample on the show give us a shout either via e-mail, our web site or Facebook. We would love the opportunity and get ya to call in and share with us, we promise we will be nice.
As always we are thankful for our sponsors who we are glad to see still hanging tough in these trying times of ever changing ‘rules’, mandates and general bullshit. Keep up the good work!
