Colorado Craft Beer Show Brewcast: Oskar Blues Home Made Liquids & Solids 4th Anniversary Bash Saturday October 19th 2013


We broadcasted in the heart of Oskar Blues Country at Home Made Liquids & Solids as they held their 4th Anniversary party and the first ever chili cook off. We love Longmont and we love us some Oskar Blues. Want to thank the OB crew for having us out!

Sitting in on the whole broadcast was the best beer despondent anyone could ask for - Mr. Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery! Garret Frase and Lou McKercher also co hosted as they are a couple of the men behind HMLS and the Oskar Blues Movement. We talked about their CAN’d Aid Foundation, Cyclhops, CHUBurger and all things OB. We also threw out Mobile Canning’s Brew News You Can Use!

Guests included Derek Gold and Logan Wiley from Left Hand Brewing Company, Darryl Abrahamson from Chris Daniels & the Kings, and Ron Popma and Pat Hartman from Mobile Canning. Georgia Boys BBQ won the chili cook off by the way!

The Gubna and Turk broadcasted from Oskar Blues Homemades, Liquids and Solids for the Funk’n Wild Sour and Wild Ale Club meeting. Just FYI - we had to engineer this one ourselves and had a few issues but most of the show is here!

Read the story here from Shikes at The Westword and go to this support page for Strange and hit like! We also threw out a ton of brew news and let you know what our sponsors are up to. At 12:30 Tebo from Breckenridge Brewery jumped in and told us all their happenings. We also were joined by Ben Christensen and Lou McKercher from Homemades, Liquids and Solids. We closed out the hour with Avery Brewing‘s brewer, barrel herder and presenter of the day Andy Parker. We talked sours and a bit about Avery’s barrel aged releases.




In Hour Two we opened up talking to Great American Beer Festival small brewery of the year Funkwerks. We were joined by Gordon Schuck, Andy Mitchell and Brad Lincoln. They gave us their story, talked about Belgian beers and about their expansion. We then were joined by founder of the Funk’n Wild that meets once a quarter at Homemades, Liquids and Solids.
