Barley & Me

Episode 92: Joe Vida of Super Owl Brewing (Davis, CA) and Comedienne Cheryl “The Soccer Mom” Anderson

January 22, 2019

Host Ben Rice travels to Davis, CA, to talk to Joe Vida, co-owner and head brewer of Super Owl Brewing, and comedienne Cheryl "The Soccer Mom" Anderson. We talk about Joe's homebrewing roots and how they've influenced his transition to the commercial realm, as well as Cheryl's climb to success in the comedy world and her influence on our host's career in all respects, including how he eats his dinner. We try to figure out what is and isn't a fox, the ups and downs of football fandom, and how to do a podcast in the midst of a child's birthday party. Plus! Neighborhood breweries making a comeback, the quirks of the Midwestern vernacular, and how Super Owl got (and didn't get) its name. All this and more, on episode 92 of Barley & Me. Enjoy!
