03.23.16 (MP3): Beer Makin' & Dude Foodin' w/ Gearheads @ Helm's, LS1 Buggy Fail, F-35 VS F-14 Tomcats VS Nato F-16, Jungle Juice, New Zealish Beer, Short Beer, Grapefruit & Mango Beer, Brewing History, Beer Floats, Pork Belly Sandwiches, +San Diego Beers
Ahhhhh, that's the stuff. The Garage Hour goons got together with friends at Helm's Brewing and talked about what's good for your stomach: brewing beer, brands of beer, new beers being brewed, and the yummy (and not so yummy) beers on tap around town. That's not enough to satisfy the needs of our gearhead gullets, though: we have Dude Food with FNG Alex, who walks us through his pork belly sandwich recipe, which results in a near fistfight in the studio over lobster and snow crabs versus blue claw crabs.
Hostus Maximus Justin Fort guides Dan Lawrence - head brewer at Helm's - as well as cohosts .45 Phil, Chef Jeff, FNG Alex and the lovely Karen (Mrs. Chef Jeff) through this episode of the Garage Hour.
This one's heavy on beer, so if you want to know more about what's being brewed, how beer's made, some beer history (like short beer and table beer), hereyago. The Garage Hour also chats up/comer Helix Brewing in La Mesa, how their head brewer is hot (hey, Dan said it, Cameron), jungle juice, how to suck the sock, making a kiwi beer with puree instead of extract (and why), marzen beers and how a lager is different than an ale.
On the heels of all that beer talk (or because of it), the gearhead lords of the galaxy also take apart some analysis of the new F-35 and why it can't dogfight worth a dam (and why the Tomcat and the F-16 both take its lunch money head to head), visit with that fool who bonked his LS1 buggy right through San Diego and into a jail cell, Russian spies as cohosts (Agent Aya, anyone?), Shermans versus Tigers, the Phoenix missile, and our impending Philbecue.
