Old Man Metal’s Musings, Episode 9

COVID Beer Haul + Red Dead and AJ Nemesis Video Clips

Old Man Metal combines beer and metal on the ninth episode of his solo podcast, taking a look at the state of North Carolina craft beer during COVID by breaking down his latest beer haul, featuring beer from New Anthem Beer Project, Edmund’s Oast, Foothills Brewing Company, Trophy Brewing Company and more, including an in-depth look at the fifteen different flavor-bomb hops they use— like Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and El Dorado— and an impassioned discussion of hop fade and the importance of fresh beer and code dating, closing out with a pair of new metal video clips from Red Dead and AJ Nemesis… all while drinking a pint of Blair’s Breakfast Stout, a great coffee-oats-and-lactose stout ale from Wilmington Brewing Company.
