01.11.14: A Preview of Manzanita Brewing's New Distillery, Plus Fallujah, Tequila, Shooting, Writing Checks, Ronald Reagan, Tires, San Diego Drivers, Suburbans, Superstition, Spirits, and Pawns VS Minions
Ahhhh, the Garage Hour. We bring intriguing and offensive to a whole new level without upsetting the FCC. Much. On this epsiode, we chat up Jeff Trevaskis, head of Manzanita Brewing, about their new distillery. We also discuss what it takes to be a small brewer (and a small company) in San Diego's blue-collar nexus, East County (Santee, to be exact), and in California.
Following the formalities, however, the conversation will wander. You insist. We hit off-roading, big trucks, tire care and how Southern Californians screw themselves again and again in crappy weather, preparedness, rock and/or roll, as well as plans for a visit to the range, local beers, the cost of a good still (which has a whole lot of zeros), and more reasons to unphone yourself.
Justin Fort - former factory test-driver, off-roader, shooter, eater, and Hostus Maximus - is joined in the studio to chat up Trevaskis by none other than .45 Phil, 27-year Marine and That Which Goes Bump In The Night.
