Oak Park Brewing’s Rodg & Theo Mack, Jr.on behalf of People’s Brewing

Oak Park Brewing’s Rodg & Theo Mack, Jr.on behalf of People’s Brewing

August 31, 2020

In this special episode, host Ben Rice talks to absolutely no one! Oak Park Brewing in Sacramento had the good fortune of collaborating with the first Black-owned brewery in America, People's Brewing in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin! So OPB's head brewer Rodg interviews the son of the owner, Theo Mack, Jr. We'll hear about how Theo Mack, Sr., came into the beer business, his journeys in the military and through the Civil Rights Movement, and what People's Beer meant then and what it should mean now. It's a fascinating look at beer history, civil rights history, and how those are so intimately intertwined, and speaks to all the things America is going through right now. Thank you to Oak Park Brewing for doing this, making this beer, and letting me use this audio. Go hunt down this lager; it's one hell of a beer. Enjoy!

Barley & Me host Ben Rice joins co-host and chef Phil Webster for episode 3 of Hoops & Hops, a discussion of old- and new-school NBA basketball and beer. Episode 3 was recorded at New Helvetia Brewing in Sacramento, CA. As we discussed the NBA reopen, we drank a Crowns & Hops Black Is Beautiful Pecan Pie stout. We then crowned our best performers from the first 10 days of NBA action, before delving into a comparison of Gary Payton to a beer. To assist, Dave Gull of New Helvetia busted out his GABF gold medal winner, Thurston Adambier. We also realign our expectations for the rest of the year and pick our new frontrunners for the 2020 NBA Finals. Enjoy!

Barley & Me Presents: Leonard Malting Reviews! Dazed & Confused

Barley & Me Presents: Leonard Malting Reviews! Dazed & Confused

July 20, 2020

Leonard Malting is the beer-focused movie review offshoot of the Barley & Me Podcast, featuring B&M host Ben Rice, plus co-hosts Corky McDonnell (Dare Daniel Podcast) and Paulina Olivares (Pink Boots Society). In this episode, we discuss the 1993 indie stoner comedy classic Dazed & Confused. Known as a weed movie, Ben argues it might actually be a beer movie. We break down break-out roles, high school hazing, and the bygone lazy days of summer. Plus! We drink a variety of Black Is Beautiful beers (cheers to Oak Park, Urban Roots, and Bike Dog Brewing for the provisions) and F* Cancer IPA from Silver Moon Brewing.

If you have a beer-centric or heavily-beer-involved movie recommendation, let us know and maybe we’ll do this again!

Barley & Me Presents: Hoops & Hops, Episode 2, with Co-Host Phil Webster

June 29, 2020

Barley & Me host Ben Rice teams up with Sacramento chef Phil Webster to talk basketball and beer, in episode 2 of Barley & Me Presents: Hoops & Hops! Today, we build on the foundation of episode one by selecting the Sacramento Brewery Dream Team's version of Isiah Thomas, who was infamously left off the original Dream Team for a variety of alleged reasons. Then we tackle the new craft beer hotness: Milkshake IPA - what players past or present match this profile? We also do a deep dive on Dirk Nowitzki to determine his beer equivalent and discuss unathletic white guys drafted too high and their inevitable comparisons to Larry Bird. Plus! The NBA is coming back! Who do we see in the Finals and how can audiences enjoy fanless b-ball? Why John Salley, who has won championships with 3 different teams, is the best part of Bad Boys, and hey, Martin Lawrence in the 90s was unfuckwithable! SMASH beers! And a fileting of the Sacramento Kings for the ages. All this and more, on the latest episode of Barley & Me Presents: Hoops & Hops. Enjoy!

This episode’s beers were Campus Brewing’s Easy A West Coast IPA (@campusbrewingcompany) and Offshoot Beer Co’s Relax (It’s Just a Hazy IPA) (@offshootbeerco)
