Broadway Brews Project, Phantom of the Opera: BREW DAY!

Mark and I have captured a lot of episodes for The Happy Hour Guys; Over 350, in point of fact.

The "Brew Day" episode (embedded above) for The Pint of No Return, which is the beer created by the cast of The Phantom of the Opera and Hardywood Brewing for the Broadway Brews Project is one of our favorites of all time. No exaggeration; no joke. We LOVE this episode. We love these people. We love everything that the Broadway Brews Project is about. 

Three cast members got up very early (on their day off no less) and traveled all the way to Richmond to create this beer. Everyone was on their game, the brewery was jumping; It was a perfect day.

Enjoy.

 What do you think a Phantom beer should be named?

What do you think a Phantom beer should be named?

The Broadway Brews Project rolls on! The Happy Hour Guys are assembling yet another team to create the fourth in our Broadway Six Pack lineup, with none other than - PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!

And this Majestic Brew will be created by cast members of the Broadway company, collaborating with the craft wizards of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Richmond, VA.

Very soon we'll be gathering the cast together to talk about what kind of beer they're going to make, and which charity this beer will raise money for.

GOOD LUCK and off we go!

DELAYED.

I'm supposed to be in the air right now. No, seriously; in an alternate universe, I'm on a plane from PHF to LGA, winging it to the Bulleit Rye rollout event in NYC. I'll make it (I think): but the sign at the gate simply reads: DELAYED. No other info; just that horrible D word that has been responsible for so many extra points of raised blood pressure over the years. However, here at PHF, just 20 steps from the gate is the Blue Sky Cafe, where there is craft on draft! For a mere $6 per (cheap for airport beer) Legends Brewing Brown Ale, Harpoon IPA, Widmer Hefe and RedHook Winter Hook. Deep breath, folks. Where there is craft, all is well. Now what's my seat assignment....?

Video episode #155: Devils Backbone Brewing, THE PLACE.

Thanks to their trusty steed THURSON, (the Nissan) Mark and Jimmy find themselves at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the home of the Devil's Backbone Brewing Company. One wouldn't expect to find such an award winning brewery here! In addition to being a worldwide rising star in the beer community (they've medaled 4 times in each of their first 2 years of competition at the Great American Beer Festival), Devil's Backbone is a steward of it's community, creating jobs, sourcing local foods and building materials, and hosting many charitable and artistic events. This place is a true gem. Join The Guys as they sit down with Owner Steve Crandall and Head Brewer Jason Oliver. Enjoy!
