For each episode, Augie and John will blind-taste and dissect two beers on air (provided by that episode’s guest) while discussing current beer topics, news, and styles.

Episode 345 - Eric Larkin, Cohesion Brewing Company Happy Monday, Thieves! After two weeks of birthday celebrations, we're back to our regularly scheduled programming this week with Eric Larkin of Denver's brand spanking new Cohesion Brewing. Eric is a veteran of both the East Coast and Colorado beer scenes, and has worked at some of our favorite breweries (Allagash and Odd 13 to name just two). At Cohesion, he's doing something a little different, specializing exclusively on Czech-style lagers of all varieties. He walks us through how he transitioned from brewing hazies to focusing on Tmavés and Černés. The first black glass discussion devolves into Holl defending McSorley's while the second beer knocks or collective socks off.

Episode 343 - Birthday Celebrations with Evan Watson, Plan Bee (Part 1) Happy Monday, Thieves! When the man has a birthday, we get together and celebrate. Last week we had some fun at Carton Brewing as Augie celebrated himself. A party is always better with friends so we're joined by Evan Watson of Plan Bee Farm Brewery and Hillary Barile of Rabbit Hill Farms. The trio talk about Planning Jersey, a collaboration beer, and then we go down the weeds of ping pong conversation as pints are poured. We had so much fun, in fact, that this is only part one. We'll have the rest of the conversation next week, but for now settle in and enjoy this lively, sprawling conversation.***As always, you can email your questions, complaints, whimpers, or whines to us at stealthisbeerpodcast@gmail.com.

Episode 341 - Catching Up with Anne Becerra and Treadwell Park
Episode 341 - Catching Up with Anne Becerra and Treadwell Park Happy Monday, Thieves! We're not quite there, but as the world opens up we've been pining for a properly poured draft beer, the sound of conversation around us, the wafting aromas of buttered popcorn. So, we've invited Anne Becerra onto the show. You'll remember that she practically runs Treadwell Park, our old recording stomping grounds. She's always been excellent for insight on beer and breweries, but also the service side of things. As a combination of COVID-19, bad customers, and the economy have danced a rough tango over the hospitality industry. Anne has seen it all and has thoughts on the current state of things and an appeal for kindness.She's not drinking out of the black glasses, but Augie and John had a good go with things as Justin again picked some gems from the world's most wonderful bodega.Listen in, support your local businesses and tip well.***As always, you can email your questions, complaints, whimpers, or whines to us at stealthisbeerpodcast@gmail.com.
