Hello hello everyone…

00:00:11,220 –> 00:00:18,600
yep we’re live streaming we are live streaming
to Facebook very exciting hello everyone we are

00:00:18,600 –> 00:00:26,400
thrilled to be here with you on this Oktoberfest
season 2023. yeah excited to share some of these

00:00:26,400 –> 00:00:31,620
beautiful Oktoberfest beers uh we’re probably not
gonna drink all of these tonight simply because

00:00:31,620 –> 00:00:39,660
well there’s a lot um and there’s a reason for
that you might notice there are maybe a few more

00:00:39,660 –> 00:00:48,180
that arrived in your kits free um and the reason
for that is because a few of our members were

00:00:48,180 –> 00:00:53,820
delivered by one specific carrier who shall remain
nameless and they did some funky weird stuff and

00:00:53,820 –> 00:00:58,560
just held all their packages for a little while
for a reason still kind of unbeknownst to us

00:00:59,520 –> 00:01:05,220
um so they did not get their SipScout packages in
time but our lovely beer vendor craft Jack who

00:01:05,220 –> 00:01:11,460
we love um helped us out and very quickly
ship them for different Oktoberfest beers

00:01:11,460 –> 00:01:16,020
because they were all out of the ones that we
already had linked to them some delicious ones

00:01:16,020 –> 00:01:20,700
problems but I guess the consensus was there
but these looked to be a pretty unable to from

00:01:20,700 –> 00:01:24,540
what we’ve come to understand about the
replacement ones absolutely so we have

00:01:24,540 –> 00:01:28,620
them ship us the replacement ones as well so
that those of you on the call today who have

00:01:28,620 –> 00:01:33,840
this set versus those of you who have our tips
together steps we can drink along with all of

00:01:33,840 –> 00:01:39,720

um and we will turn this on at the end of
you know maybe a half hour in 45 minutes in

00:02:24,120 –> 00:02:29,700
depending on how long we talk around all of
our Oktoberfest beers and tasting techniques

00:02:30,360 –> 00:02:34,500
um but we’ll invite all of you to kind of turn
your cameras on get on here and chit chat with

00:02:34,500 –> 00:02:42,600
us all that good stuff if you would like um all
right so Oktoberfest let’s go get us started with

00:02:44,100 –> 00:02:53,820
our quiz one of our course uh oh failed to launch
full uh oh there we go all right having all sorts

00:02:53,820 –> 00:02:57,780
of technical difficulties and carrier difficulties
and all sorts of weird stuff this month

00:02:58,500 –> 00:03:02,580
um all right what month does Oktoberfest start
we’re starting you off a little easy here maybe

00:03:02,580 –> 00:03:08,160
this should have been the last question after
you’ve already had a lot of prayers yeah what

00:03:08,160 –> 00:03:14,280
month does Oktoberfest start is it September Is it
October or is it all year round and it never ends

00:03:14,280 –> 00:03:20,280
um so bad answer yeah um so yeah we’ll be
popping up a few poll questions throughout

00:03:20,280 –> 00:03:27,660
as we go so that you can learn a little bit about
Oktoberfest and feel like you’re in Germany um you

00:03:27,660 –> 00:03:32,400
have to help make sure that I don’t reveal any
of the quiz answers you might so that also means

00:03:32,400 –> 00:03:36,720
just pay attention because maybe you’ll get a quiz
quiz answer right because of something that Evan

00:03:38,100 –> 00:03:43,500
um before we jump into our Oktoberfest
celebrations I did want to just quickly mention

00:03:44,280 –> 00:03:50,640
are up and coming oh yeah we’ve got an exciting
kit coming up just to get not very excited is

00:03:50,640 –> 00:03:57,540
it super exciting especially because look at
these fancy does yeah um so um because I know

00:03:57,540 –> 00:04:01,860
we have some people who aren’t currently
members here so next month SipScout kit

00:04:02,940 –> 00:04:14,280
a new designation category or category rather
um recognized by the U.S government by the TTV

00:04:14,280 –> 00:04:21,000
uh we’re going to be doing American Single Malt
so more well known from their Scottish counterpart

00:04:21,000 –> 00:04:25,500
uh these are some beautiful representations of
we have to grab a couple of those bottles right

00:04:25,500 –> 00:04:30,000
there so we can show you a couple of the makers
that are going to be in it um so American Single

00:04:30,000 –> 00:04:34,260
Malt is brand new like Evan said um well it’s not
brand new people have been making American Single

00:04:34,260 –> 00:04:39,960
Malt for a while but it’s officially recognized
now as a style um and so we have Dampfwerk we

00:04:39,960 –> 00:04:45,480
have Colkegan from Santa Fe Spirits we have
Jettywave over there Boulder Spirits a lot of

00:04:45,480 –> 00:04:51,960
really fun American Single Malt and statistics well if you’re
a 10th Street oh I’m spacing at the moment as well

00:04:51,960 –> 00:05:01,680
I’ll think of it momentarily you just made all
the labels I know um but yeah so American Single

00:05:01,680 –> 00:05:06,180
Malt are super exciting um because you know
we’ve all been into whiskey for a while most

00:05:06,180 –> 00:05:10,740
of us have been you probably know bourbon pretty
well you probably dabbled in a little bit of Rye

00:05:10,740 –> 00:05:15,600
maybe and American Single Malt is up and coming and
it’s new and honestly we were just at a conference

00:05:15,600 –> 00:05:20,700
for craft distillers in Vegas it’s about I
don’t know three weeks ago a month ago and

00:05:20,700 –> 00:05:26,340
all the distillers were talking about like move
over bourbon like American Single Malt is going

00:05:26,340 –> 00:05:32,640
to be is going to be America’s whiskey like they
really believe this is going to be true and that

00:05:32,640 –> 00:05:36,540
um It’s Gonna Change the landscape completely
and so for people who really like Scotch to

00:05:36,540 –> 00:05:40,140
really kind of play with American Single Malts
and learn about those it’s a very exciting kit

00:05:40,140 –> 00:05:45,240
it even if you’re a member if you have someone
you know who you know loves whiskey let them

00:05:45,240 –> 00:05:51,060
know about this because this is gonna be really
fun and and most exciting of all at least four of

00:05:51,060 –> 00:05:54,840
the distillers are going to be joining us at our
monthly subscout party next week because they’re

00:05:54,840 –> 00:05:59,820
so excited to connect with people like you who are
interested in whiskey and they want to talk to you

00:05:59,820 –> 00:06:03,960
about this new category and what they’re doing so
that’s gonna be really exciting you’re not going

00:06:03,960 –> 00:06:09,240
to hear as much from us you’ll finally get a break
from Skipper jaberin and um and you’ll get to hear

00:06:09,240 –> 00:06:13,920
from the distillers themselves so it’s going to be
a really kind of collaborative fun fun event yeah

00:06:13,920 –> 00:06:22,560
some creative Innovative distillers join us for
sure all right but back to Oktoberfest should we

00:06:22,560 –> 00:06:29,760
crack into our beers so if you got your SipScout
kit in time crack open this one here the Fort

00:06:29,760 –> 00:06:38,580
George half liter and if you got uh the backup
or I guess I should say maybe replacement extra

00:06:39,240 –> 00:06:46,620
um go ahead and bust open the Occidental Fest
beer here uh now the fun things about this

00:06:48,360 –> 00:06:55,800
is so most most beers of this size are 16 ounces
hey what do you know one pint yeah 500 and I’m

00:06:55,800 –> 00:07:03,780
sorry 473 milliliters so not quite a half a
liter exactly and so Fort George decided to

00:07:03,780 –> 00:07:11,820
make this one in exactly a half liter so it’s
16.9 ounces this can instead of the normal 16

00:07:11,820 –> 00:07:18,180
ounce can um because and this is why I’m using
this glass here they really wanted it to fit

00:07:18,780 –> 00:07:24,960
perfectly in one of these mugs here
my head’s may be a little small

00:07:25,980 –> 00:07:31,920
is that right at the line right at the line right
at the line so yeah so this is our first beer that

00:07:31,920 –> 00:07:38,760
we will be enjoying and we’ll be pouring into
this because things appropriate yeah um cheers

00:07:40,260 –> 00:07:48,240
toast cheers to all of you um so one of the
fun things that kicks off our Oktoberfest

00:07:48,240 –> 00:07:55,440
every year in uh the Town Square I’m sorry
in the city Square in Munich Teresa Vine

00:07:56,520 –> 00:08:02,940
um which is one of the namesakes or the
people that the festival began for the

00:08:02,940 –> 00:08:08,820
mayor of Munich cracks the first tap or
cracks the first keg caps the first keg

00:08:08,820 –> 00:08:17,820
and as he does so says hope Falls uh and is
that so that means it’s open and uh time to

00:08:17,820 –> 00:08:22,200
drink yeah so everyone’s standing around
waiting for the mayor to say that and then

00:08:23,640 –> 00:08:26,100
it’s open let’s go

00:08:31,320 –> 00:08:38,580
young Diggity yeah so tell us a little bit about
oktoberfestyle beers because I’m sure all of you

00:08:38,580 –> 00:08:43,440
you know as you’re shopping around this time of
year there’s all sorts of Fest beers everywhere

00:08:43,440 –> 00:08:50,640
right and you see Oktoberfest you see Fest beer
um and then you also see American is another

00:08:50,640 –> 00:08:54,660
kind of thing that you know maybe you don’t see a
whole year long that all of a sudden you’re seeing

00:08:54,660 –> 00:08:59,280
right now so tell us a little bit about these
different styles certainly so uh essentially

00:09:00,300 –> 00:09:09,120
um Oktoberfest beer you know the beer that
is consumed in Munich for Oktoberfest um has

00:09:09,120 –> 00:09:16,140
historically been a beer like Madison and Madison
is a beer that is actually probably a little bit

00:09:16,140 –> 00:09:21,240
closer in style to this one and the color and the
richness is one of the main things that delineates

00:09:21,240 –> 00:09:29,040
Madison from Fest beer that is more representative
of the half liter that Suzanne is enjoying and

00:09:37,920 –> 00:09:43,020
um but you know Madison has gotten a little
bit deeper amber color uh it’s a little bit more

00:09:43,020 –> 00:09:50,520
full-bodied and richer than Fest beers and that
style of beer shifted towards this uh Fest beer

00:09:50,520 –> 00:09:57,960
style in the 1990s is kind of when uh that really
began to take home to take hold I believe that it

00:09:57,960 –> 00:10:04,320
was first developed by polliner which is one of
the sixth beers or six breweries rather that is

00:10:04,320 –> 00:10:11,580
permitted to be served in the actual Oktoberfest
uh beer tents uh throughout the 100 acres that is

00:10:11,580 –> 00:10:16,140
yeah so if you didn’t know that there are only
right in in the actual Oktoberfest grounds the

00:10:16,140 –> 00:10:19,980
official ones because there’s festivals going
on all over Germany right but the official

00:10:19,980 –> 00:10:27,840
Oktoberfest grounds only six breweries are allowed
to make and serve their beers yeah right they’re

00:10:27,840 –> 00:10:33,300
like designated by the country and they’re the
six breweries that are in Munich um so those

00:10:33,300 –> 00:10:38,580
six breweries are the ones that are permitted to
be there um and yeah pollinator is one of them

00:10:38,580 –> 00:10:43,740
they they made this style essentially to offer
something that’s a little bit lighter bodied

00:10:44,340 –> 00:10:50,100
um something that is a little more poundable
if you will uh you know for day drinking day

00:10:50,100 –> 00:10:55,020
drinking Oktoberfest yeah they’re often drinking
drinkability is kind of the main reason that

00:10:55,020 –> 00:11:00,960
they shifted to something that’s a little
less um rich and intense like American beers

00:11:01,800 –> 00:11:08,580
um because yeah you know it’s a 16 day long
festival and people are there it’s free too

00:11:08,580 –> 00:11:13,620
so people that are local you know the majority
of people that are there are residents of Munich

00:11:14,160 –> 00:11:19,380
um and just around the areas of course uh and
so they’re there every day drinking and you

00:11:19,380 –> 00:11:27,420
know that uh so for sure yeah and so um back
to our poll question yay we tricked one person

00:11:27,420 –> 00:11:32,220
or actually the name of it tricked one person
um Oktoberfest actually starts in September

00:11:32,220 –> 00:11:37,980
so it’s a it’s a common kind of misnomer and it
actually only goes until like the first few days

00:11:37,980 –> 00:11:42,600
of October typically are into like the first
weekend of October so it’s mostly in September

00:11:43,380 –> 00:11:48,720
um and it didn’t shift way back when I think
it did yeah I think it used to be most fully

00:11:48,720 –> 00:11:54,840
in October correct yeah historians are unsure as
to when it shifted um but the original Oktoberfest

00:11:54,840 –> 00:12:02,700
uh was a celebration of the wedding between uh
Therese and hence Therese fine is the you know the

00:12:02,700 –> 00:12:09,180
grounds there and Prince Ludwig who later became
the king um and their wedding day was I believe

00:12:09,180 –> 00:12:17,940
October 12th in 19 or 1810 so this Festival
has been going on for a very long time um and

00:12:19,560 –> 00:12:23,280
the festival began I’m probably giving
away so many full questions aren’t there

00:12:24,900 –> 00:12:28,200
maybe maybe that’s good yep sure enough

00:12:30,480 –> 00:12:38,160
to go we’ll see if everyone was listening uh and
so we’re testing you too because there’s a lot of

00:12:38,160 –> 00:12:43,380
information on Oktoberfest so maybe you could have
said like 1815 you know who else maybe you’re not

00:12:43,380 –> 00:12:51,780
right the uh wedding coincided you know there’s
a big parade at the end of the festival in this

00:12:51,780 –> 00:12:56,520
in this big Garden uh in the middle of Munich
but the primary reason everyone was there was

00:12:56,520 –> 00:13:00,840
that it’s like Royal Wedding precisely it was a
festival that was thrown for the wedding right

00:13:00,840 –> 00:13:06,660
and it basically what happened uh there was a
horse race uh there it was like agricultural

00:13:06,660 –> 00:13:15,420
prizes for the biggest pumpkin uh things like
that um and the festival you know was held every

00:13:15,420 –> 00:13:23,820
year uh after that um adding food halls and and
drinks I think around the 18 or 20 maybe eight I

00:13:23,820 –> 00:13:29,580
think maybe 18 17 or 1818 was when they first had
food and beverages that were offered there and of

00:13:29,580 –> 00:13:33,660
course that’s now one of the biggest things
and biggest draws right uh for this Festival

00:13:34,560 –> 00:13:42,300
um but October the weather is questionable you
know and even in September uh they’re not being

00:13:42,300 –> 00:13:47,820
able to confidently say yeah come and wear your
shorts uh because they want everyone wearing their

00:13:47,820 –> 00:13:53,400
cute outfits yeah um but his historians don’t
really know specifically when it was moved back

00:13:54,180 –> 00:14:02,100
um but sometime in the last 200 plus years it
shifted from uh the early part of October to

00:14:02,100 –> 00:14:06,780
the mid part of September yeah uh just going
into the early part of October so you get to

00:14:06,780 –> 00:14:11,040
start celebrating in September like we are this
year yeah last year we did this in October and we

00:14:11,040 –> 00:14:18,600
were like technically we’re late we are late this
year it’s all going on right now yeah so a few

00:14:18,600 –> 00:14:25,980
um details about Oktoberfest so annual
attendance over 6 million people can

00:14:25,980 –> 00:14:30,360
you imagine six million people are going for
this over the course of 16 days it’s crazy off

00:14:30,960 –> 00:14:35,940
um and it’s coming from 55 different countries
over a few weeks period so like it’s very it’s a

00:14:35,940 –> 00:14:41,700
big draw we have not been yet we can’t wait to go
we have to that’s like on our list but there’s a

00:14:41,700 –> 00:14:48,480
lot of a lot of drinking things on our list yeah
um they go through seven million liters of beer

00:14:49,680 –> 00:14:55,080
seven million liters of the earth anyone you
want to guess roughly how much that is in a

00:14:55,080 –> 00:15:04,080
way that you can rapidly interaction so how many
Olympic-sized swimming pools is there eight Lanes

00:15:04,080 –> 00:15:11,760
seven feet wide each and six feet deep you’ve
seen an Olympic swimming pool if you’ve ever

00:15:11,760 –> 00:15:16,260
watched the Olympics because swimming is the
whole freaking time and this is a half liter

00:15:16,260 –> 00:15:22,140
so how many liter how many double of this yeah wow
that’s seven million of these double of these how

00:15:22,140 –> 00:15:28,320
many pools is it it’s roughly four Olympic-sized
swimming pools nothing smaller than I would think

00:15:28,320 –> 00:15:34,080
swimming pool is about a half a million gallon I’m
sorry yeah this is gallons I’ve been talking about

00:15:34,080 –> 00:15:39,120
uh you were you mentioned the centimeters seven
million liters it’s about two million gallons uh

00:15:39,120 –> 00:15:44,100
it’s memory serves or that approximation that’s a
lot of beer yeah CJ was dead one cool I’m thinking

00:15:44,100 –> 00:15:48,720
four pools I’m like I was thinking I was gonna be
like 30 pools or something like this I mean yeah

00:15:49,680 –> 00:15:56,160
like taking one sip out of the Olympic High School
and how much does it go down yeah negligible like

00:15:56,160 –> 00:16:00,240
yeah and then the also thing to know is that
in Germany the beer drinking age is actually

00:16:00,240 –> 00:16:06,720
16. so experience and wine you can drink starting
at 18 but you can drink beer at 16. and if you do

00:16:06,720 –> 00:16:11,280
go to Oktoberfest lucky you um if anyone’s been
to Oktoberfest who’s here throw it in the chat

00:16:11,280 –> 00:16:20,220
because we’ve got um Professor it is cash only
so bring your cash with you um yeah and you know

00:16:20,220 –> 00:16:27,360
in Germany they do have this how do you pronounce
it the beer law right the right skill board right

00:16:28,620 –> 00:16:33,180
um that it’s a 500 year old law that
basically mandates that deer can only

00:16:33,180 –> 00:16:37,380
be made from the four ingredients that
there should also be made for really

00:16:38,040 –> 00:16:42,000
um water hot beef and malt so you can’t add
anything else to it yeah you don’t see any

00:16:42,000 –> 00:16:48,000
fruit flavored beers there or anything like that
just just the basic orange greetings and actually

00:16:48,000 –> 00:16:53,100
the the rates about it was the German Purity
law was I believe the first law pertaining to

00:16:53,100 –> 00:16:58,680
the production of alcohol anywhere in the world or
any purpose interesting yeah I mean 500 years ago

00:16:59,400 –> 00:17:03,600
who is regulating alcohol production it was
mostly the church that was making it to begin

00:17:03,600 –> 00:17:07,980
with what about gothas aren’t those don’t those
often have fruit in them do they not put fruit

00:17:07,980 –> 00:17:11,280
in them in Germany that’s just the thing we
do I think that they do but I don’t think

00:17:11,280 –> 00:17:18,120
that those qualify under the rice kabad okay
or what could be you know labeled as a beer

00:17:18,120 –> 00:17:26,640
got it I didn’t even labeled that way I think
okay cool yeah but you’re right and also um um

00:17:28,560 –> 00:17:33,480
what’s the other one that they add
fruit to like when they serve it um

00:17:38,640 –> 00:17:41,100
yep you know it’ll come to us yeah

00:17:43,740 –> 00:17:49,080
um yeah but this first year that we’re drinking
over here is Fort George and they are from Astoria

00:17:49,080 –> 00:17:56,580
Oregon um and you know their Astoria actually used
to be called Fort George um back in the day when

00:17:56,580 –> 00:18:04,740
King George um was overseeing Britain and it was
a kind of under British control um so the place

00:18:04,740 –> 00:18:09,480
that is Astoria now was called Port George which
is where the name of their Brewery comes from or

00:18:09,480 –> 00:18:15,060
kind of hearkening back to the history in the past
and that area was devastated by fire a few times

00:18:15,060 –> 00:18:21,240
the building that the Fort George Brewery is in is
actually it was built in 1921 and like the whole

00:18:21,240 –> 00:18:26,280
area in city was devastated by fire in 1922 and
this building is like still there and they kind

00:18:26,280 –> 00:18:31,860
of brought it back and now there’s a brewery and
I think a bakery in there um but they really you

00:18:31,860 –> 00:18:37,980
know Pride themselves on using local ingredients
as much as they can and really you know leaning

00:18:37,980 –> 00:18:42,720
into making delicious beers like this one and
this is one that I just went in collaboration with

00:18:42,720 –> 00:18:52,260
that’s right and um actually let me pull it up
I have it right here I know exactly what you’re

00:18:52,260 –> 00:18:59,520
thinking we reached out to the uh to the had the
Brewer there at Fort George and asked them about

00:18:59,520 –> 00:19:04,080
the nature of the collaboration um right because
it said that it was a collaboration between them

00:19:04,080 –> 00:19:10,860
and she’s Brewing or or yeah and but it didn’t
say anything about the collaboration right it just

00:19:10,860 –> 00:19:14,820
said like this Brewery in this bird and we were
like well what does that mean like how did you

00:19:14,820 –> 00:19:19,500
collaborate what was the collaboration and so what
he sends us back I just want to read it to you

00:19:19,500 –> 00:19:24,060
because it’s it just gives you an appreciation for
you know we all drink beer all the time we take

00:19:24,060 –> 00:19:28,800
steps of it it seems like one of the most kind of
simple alcohols out there right like it seems It’s

00:19:28,800 –> 00:19:35,460
like crushable easy to drink and his response
about what that meant collaboration I was just

00:19:35,460 –> 00:19:41,880
like man that makes you appreciate what goes into
a single beer so much more so this is what he said

00:19:42,540 –> 00:19:47,880
this collaboration was a collaboration throughout
the whole process we chatted on what we would

00:19:47,880 –> 00:19:53,160
first like to see in a Fest here and Dove
down into each ingredient to make that happen

00:19:54,180 –> 00:20:01,560
we use rarer pills our ahr Rara pills since it
has quite a bready profile and then backed it up

00:20:01,560 –> 00:20:07,440
with some Wireman specialty Mall we used wiremen
for those since we believe that they have a lot

00:20:07,440 –> 00:20:12,540
more character than the American malt of the
same variety Brad really liked using Hercules

00:20:12,540 –> 00:20:17,700
for bittering loggers and we wanted a little
fruity character so we added in some texts and

00:20:17,700 –> 00:20:24,480
some feathers appears I think we decided to get
we decided to use Augustine or Yeast since it is

00:20:24,480 –> 00:20:29,400
our house water used it before and it plays
very well with many of the styles of lager

00:20:29,400 –> 00:20:33,900
fermentation profile is decided based upon
our history with the yeast and what we were

00:20:33,900 –> 00:20:38,820
trying to get out of it we fermented it on the
colder side of the E strain to keep the profile

00:20:38,820 –> 00:20:43,260
clean and then ramp it up at the tail end to
clean up the sulfur that the seeds can throw

00:20:45,060 –> 00:20:50,400
what like you’re like wait it’s just
beer though right like it just it really

00:20:51,240 –> 00:20:56,040
makes your appreciation for especially you know
when you’re drinking beers you’re like wow this

00:20:56,040 –> 00:21:01,860
is really good like how much thought really goes
into it when you’re deciding how to make a certain

00:21:01,860 –> 00:21:05,940
flavor profile how to bring this to life what
you want it to taste like smell like look like

00:21:06,840 –> 00:21:10,500
um you know and he wrote lost more after that
but we just thought that was a really like

00:21:10,500 –> 00:21:17,160
enlightening you know what tell me about the beer
yeah I just didn’t kind of decipher that a little

00:21:17,160 –> 00:21:24,480
bit um as it does kind of pertain very nicely
to the flavor profile of this uh first off there

00:21:25,200 –> 00:21:30,900
uh the Wireman malt that he was talking about
generally the mold characteristic that you’re

00:21:30,900 –> 00:21:37,020
using to make best beers include Munich malts
and a pilgrim mold and they’re usually about

00:21:37,020 –> 00:21:43,380
half and half I’m totally about 80 and then
five ten percent of other richer malts to

00:21:43,380 –> 00:21:49,320
give a little bit more backbone which you know
this is not quite as light as a straight pilsner

00:21:49,920 –> 00:21:53,940
um and you’re getting some of the color from those
richer malts that make up that other 20 percent

00:21:54,720 –> 00:22:01,020
and then the aroma that you get from this
is pretty standard for this Carlos Beer

00:22:01,020 –> 00:22:04,260
I think this is a really good
representation of a best smear

00:22:05,040 –> 00:22:14,100
um it’s got you know a fair bit of malt profiles I
think that’s definitely what leads here but the mo

00:22:14,100 –> 00:22:19,140
the Hop profile is present you know there’s
there’s some floral characteristics to it

00:22:19,140 –> 00:22:29,160
um the aromatics are quite bright uh lots of kind
of doughy um co-speed flower uh like biscuit type

00:22:29,160 –> 00:22:35,580
Aromas but there is a little bit of like kind of
a hint of what you might guess to be like a sweet

00:22:35,580 –> 00:22:41,400
white wine almost doesn’t always like that floral
kind of a little bit almost pretty but fruit is

00:22:41,400 –> 00:22:48,540
not something that I feel like I’m getting much in
this at all um and that’s really the kind of the

00:22:48,540 –> 00:22:53,400
focus of having something that’s very flavorful
but you can still drink a lot of it because it’s

00:22:53,400 –> 00:23:01,680
not super dense it’s really a delicious beer yeah
very well balanced it has like a smoothness on the

00:23:01,680 –> 00:23:06,660
sides of my tongue a little bit because it’s
like refreshing almost yeah it’s really quite

00:23:06,660 –> 00:23:11,700
lovely uh and then one other fun thing to note
about that you know and part of the reason that

00:23:12,480 –> 00:23:16,860
um I agree that you should share it is while
the yeast characteristic isn’t something that

00:23:16,860 –> 00:23:21,420
you recognize a lot in the flavor profile youth
is obviously very important that’s what makes all

00:23:21,420 –> 00:23:27,960
alcohol possible right um and the specific meat
that they chose to use is Augustine Augustina is

00:23:27,960 –> 00:23:34,980
one of the six breweries that exist in Munich and
you can enjoy it the Oktoberfest uh Festival there

00:23:35,520 –> 00:23:41,700
seriously though it’s the only one that is
not exported so and unless you go there you

00:23:41,700 –> 00:23:46,260
don’t get an opportunity to try it I’d like
to think that this is a sound representation

00:23:47,040 –> 00:23:52,380
uh you know hopefully what I get the energy
for it and did I give away another yeah

00:23:52,380 –> 00:24:00,120
it reminded me to keep filming with the
polls um and I think Augustina is the one

00:24:00,120 –> 00:24:05,700
that is pretty unanimously agreed
is the best one at October that’s

00:24:05,700 –> 00:24:12,240
the rumor right yeah and not surprisingly most
countries keep the best stuff for them so yeah

00:24:13,080 –> 00:24:18,540
um so I remember when I went to Argentina to go
to Malbec region I was like I like meldek I drink

00:24:18,540 –> 00:24:24,900
it here um I enjoy it but it’s not like wow and
I went to Argentina and I was bringing like 15

00:24:24,900 –> 00:24:30,120
bottles of Malbec and I was just like oh my God
this is amazing and I was like you guys keep all

00:24:30,120 –> 00:24:34,500
the good stuff for yourself so it’s the same idea
they don’t export it and apparently it’s the best

00:24:34,500 –> 00:24:40,020
so I guess we all gotta make a little sip Scout
group trip to October that would be fun that would

00:24:40,020 –> 00:24:46,020
be so fun yeah essentially does the same thing
with their wine sorry their chocolate yeah I mean

00:24:54,420 –> 00:24:59,640
um and then the the hot profile um you know
there’s there’s two kind of primary categories

00:24:59,640 –> 00:25:08,640
delineations within pops and uh they’re either
bittering cops or aromatic hop um and you know

00:25:08,640 –> 00:25:12,900
he mentioned that there was a little bit of the
bittering Hops that Hercules hop but most of what

00:25:12,900 –> 00:25:22,200
they’re using were uh traditional Noble hop um
uh he mentioned pet ninja and then uh throughout

00:25:22,200 –> 00:25:29,940
the collection of these guys you’re going to
see a lot of uh hops like Falls and uh holler

00:25:29,940 –> 00:25:36,720
towel and Hershberger these are all hops that
categorize and are categorized as aromatic hops

00:25:36,720 –> 00:25:40,980
they’re not going to get like that same kind of
bitterness that you see in a lot of American ipas

00:25:41,880 –> 00:25:49,440
um in these in these beers the Hops are mainly
used to retain freshness and give a little bit of

00:25:49,440 –> 00:25:57,180
kind of that bright aromatic profile um speaking
of freshness and this is probably going to be

00:25:57,180 –> 00:26:02,100
another good bowl that I’m going to give away I
don’t know I don’t know where are you going um

00:26:04,140 –> 00:26:14,640
the term or the name Merton oh yeah uh anybody
know what that uh what that translates to um

00:26:18,180 –> 00:26:24,060
let’s see March nice now so why
are we drinking a beer named for

00:26:25,260 –> 00:26:31,320
March at October October so it’s kind of
weird the first time someone asked me that

00:26:31,320 –> 00:26:34,260
I was like I don’t know because there’s
a parade and they’re like is there March

00:26:34,260 –> 00:26:38,820
8th I guess that’s a good guess I don’t
know I just thought it was feasible yeah

00:26:39,600 –> 00:26:48,300
um well the beer Tom’s on it yep before
Refrigeration you know before you know electricity

00:26:49,320 –> 00:26:56,040
um vloggers can only be made in the cooler times
of the year and so they would make the logger in

00:26:56,040 –> 00:27:00,300
March that was the latest that they could make
it and then it would Age until it was time for

00:27:00,300 –> 00:27:06,840
Oktoberfest they’d crack that beer open yeah um
goat bladder is not the translation of America

00:27:06,840 –> 00:27:12,960
out of a group ladder but they did
help us out earlier and if this is

00:27:12,960 –> 00:27:14,940
what you were actually thinking of
and I said I couldn’t think of it

00:27:14,940 –> 00:27:17,760
I’m gonna like die laughing were
you thinking of half of I said

00:27:17,760 –> 00:27:31,740
coriander orange kind of a flavor profile
customizing and it’s sour it’s a sour wheat

00:27:31,740 –> 00:27:36,840
beer they notice here interesting we’re gonna
have to we’re gonna have to look it up figure

00:27:36,840 –> 00:27:42,420
it out driving me crazy um The One Brewery you
will not find at Oktoberfest is actually a younger

00:27:43,260 –> 00:27:47,940
um so that is the one you will find spotting
and Augustina as we mentioned and love and

00:27:47,940 –> 00:27:54,600
browser and shocker uh shocker shocker tour
that one I have a hard time help me do not

00:27:54,600 –> 00:28:03,600
look at me for soccer or lowenbrow Hofbrau
Satan uh polymer and August wiener all right

00:28:05,100 –> 00:28:10,440
one of those was a recent Edition have any
of you tried your pretzels yet they were

00:28:10,440 –> 00:28:13,860
gone they look so they look so basic
they look like all right they sent

00:28:13,860 –> 00:28:19,320
me some hearts like we don’t know why we are
obsessed with these pretzels we love them um

00:28:21,900 –> 00:28:28,260
this is pretty common food at uh
Oktoberfest um one of the most

00:28:28,260 –> 00:28:32,640
heavily eating things though
there is uh well strangely anybody

00:28:34,020 –> 00:28:39,540
roast chicken roast chicken Big Crush roast
chicken I actually think I have a stat on that

00:28:40,320 –> 00:28:47,220
then yeah Zach pretzels are in the original kit
when you get your kit you’ll get them for sure

00:28:48,480 –> 00:28:51,720
um sorry you don’t have them now they’re
really they’re really freaking delicious

00:28:51,720 –> 00:28:56,280
you will enjoy them with the beers that you
get in your kit when it gets to you so bonus

00:28:57,360 –> 00:29:05,220
um during Oktoberfest they eat 500 000 roast
chickens 500 000 Russian chickens crazy

00:29:05,880 –> 00:29:09,300
yeah they really looks like an
Olympic-sized swimming pool full of chicken

00:29:11,220 –> 00:29:18,480
not so funnier visual that’s a hilarious
visual um um seriously enough this year

00:29:19,140 –> 00:29:25,440
there’s controversy at Oktoberfest oh my nervous
yeah trying to share this with you so there’s

00:29:25,440 –> 00:29:31,080
a lot of controversy in October guys this year
because there has been an effort to kind of make

00:29:31,080 –> 00:29:37,980
Oktoberfest a little bit more sustainable um in
various ways and some of them have impacted it uh

00:29:38,640 –> 00:29:44,340
as far as the guests experience to lesser
degrees but apparently they moved to make

00:29:44,340 –> 00:29:49,980
all of the roast chicken there organic this year
oh interesting and it’s caused the cost of the

00:29:49,980 –> 00:29:55,620
chicken to rise right about 50 wow so people that
would otherwise come in there and enjoy chicken

00:29:56,880 –> 00:30:02,640
um our opting to just have bratwurst and pretzels
and you know cheese bread and sauerkraut and

00:30:02,640 –> 00:30:06,120
stuff like that instead of what they would have
otherwise been drinking which is the roast chicken

00:30:06,960 –> 00:30:12,720
um it’s interesting that they would address
the chicken before like I don’t know the

00:30:12,720 –> 00:30:19,080
grains that they’re making the beer with no
although yeah I guess organic greens might be

00:30:20,460 –> 00:30:27,480
um a bigger ask Ed so this Occidental is
not American because it really looks and

00:30:27,480 –> 00:30:30,780
kind of drives like one I believe it
is I believe it is they just aren’t

00:30:30,780 –> 00:30:34,860
I think that leaving it properly I think
that the use of the term best beer there

00:30:36,120 –> 00:30:42,660
might be questionable yeah yeah I feel
like we thought this was going to be

00:30:43,260 –> 00:30:49,140
um an Oktoberfest yle the orfest beer um
but it does seem like it’s a miracle to me

00:30:49,140 –> 00:30:55,200
for sure and it is 6.3 abvs I feel like this
but look at that cuteness of the can one kid

00:31:00,000 –> 00:31:02,880
um so I looked up a little about Occidental
Brewing today since this is a last minute

00:31:02,880 –> 00:31:09,720
ad and they’re kind of interesting so they’re
in Portland Oregon and they were founded with

00:31:09,720 –> 00:31:16,500
the goal of making what they call well-balanced
Continental style beers and so they found a niche

00:31:16,500 –> 00:31:21,720
with beer drinkers who basically they were founded
in 2011 and by doing these like well-balanced

00:31:21,720 –> 00:31:26,400
Continental style beers they basically found a
niche with beer drinkers who were just getting

00:31:26,400 –> 00:31:33,240
sick of the like hops arms race with ipas they
felt like every Brewery was going IPA crazy and

00:31:33,240 –> 00:31:38,040
there were like ipas everywhere and Hot Tops Hot
Tops and so they decided to start a brewery that

00:31:38,040 –> 00:31:43,800
was kind of the antithesis book but I can’t say
that word answers antithesis of that thank you

00:31:44,460 –> 00:31:49,500
um and really we’re focusing on a lot
of German style beers primarily kosh’s

00:31:49,500 –> 00:31:53,640
you know things of that nature so this is
you know this is kind of their bread and

00:31:53,640 –> 00:31:58,620
butter this is their wheelhouse and you know
Oktoberfest they kind of shine but they did

00:31:59,340 –> 00:32:04,560
um they did actually act after covid which is
kind of interesting they launched a new brand

00:32:04,560 –> 00:32:09,060
called further beer and this gives their
Brewers kind of freedom to experiment with

00:32:09,060 –> 00:32:14,880
new ingredients and kind of play with different
styles that don’t fit in that category namely ipas

00:32:17,100 –> 00:32:20,700
um so you know everyone folds eventually
I know I know it’s too lucrative everyone

00:32:20,700 –> 00:32:25,380
tries to avoid the IPA poll and eventually
they’re like well we’ll do a few ideas

00:32:25,380 –> 00:32:29,040
but but they launched a different but we’re
going to put it under a different brand right

00:32:29,580 –> 00:32:33,540
um to do that and they do other experimental
things as well not just ipas but some experimental

00:32:33,540 –> 00:32:39,060
things so their Brewers can basically kind of play
and not only make German style beers they’re kind

00:32:39,060 –> 00:32:45,300
of a cool spot in Portland to check out for
sure what are we moving on to next year well

00:32:46,320 –> 00:32:52,680
since this was America was not in fact the best
beer style that I thought it was going to be

00:32:52,680 –> 00:32:56,400
yeah we should probably wonder if we should
be because we want those of you who got these

00:32:56,400 –> 00:33:03,120
supplemental beers to try a traditional Fest beer
or this one I think is Emerson this one as well

00:33:05,160 –> 00:33:12,960
oh maybe not October it is hard because yeah
it does say Madison starlocker yeah the the

00:33:12,960 –> 00:33:21,120
confusion often lies in that true Oktoberfest
beer all one word is really only produced by those

00:33:21,120 –> 00:33:28,560
six breweries in Munich um Oktoberfest style
beer or just something that says Oktoberfest

00:33:29,400 –> 00:33:34,980
uh it could kind of be I could kind of be
either the true like best beer style or it

00:33:34,980 –> 00:33:41,220
could be more of the historic precedent which
was the American yeah um and unfortunately

00:33:41,220 –> 00:33:45,480
naming conventions are not very well established
here in the United States for things like this

00:33:45,480 –> 00:33:51,960
the way that they are in Germany yeah so for
those of you we’re not going to open this Bob

00:33:51,960 –> 00:33:59,580
beer mostly because Evan’s dad is named Bob
and he’s German and he loves it it’s called

00:33:59,580 –> 00:34:07,140
bobtoberfest I don’t even know if he’s going to
open it yeah he will yeah no your dad likes beer

00:34:07,680 –> 00:34:13,440
um so we’re gonna save this to open with Bob
here with us but if any of you who have this kit

00:34:13,440 –> 00:34:18,360
want to open this one up and let us know if you
think it’s an oktoberfestyle beer or a medicine

00:34:19,260 –> 00:34:24,240
um you would be interested we would be interested
to know that because it’s yeah I I would imagine

00:34:24,240 –> 00:34:30,420
it’s an October has styled here based on it just
says Oktoberfest lager but as opposed to faster I

00:34:30,420 –> 00:34:36,660
thought this one was going to be as well right
so we will see we will find out oh we’re split

00:34:36,660 –> 00:34:40,680
on this question we don’t we don’t know the
answer to this one we’re all split yeah this

00:34:40,680 –> 00:34:46,500
is a seasonal favorite traditional Oktoberfest
Forum oh I think I think this one is its best

00:34:46,500 –> 00:34:49,620
beer that’s why I was thinking that this one
was going to be more similar to the half acre

00:34:49,620 –> 00:34:54,420
all right so do you tie it on the right on your
left in the middle or on the back oh no you don’t

00:34:54,420 –> 00:35:00,000
have to stand up that’s what I want Evan wants
to drop his whole costume so it’s not a costume

00:35:00,000 –> 00:35:06,600
it’s an outfit sorry I’m sorry sorry so since I
am taken it is on your right that is where you

00:35:06,600 –> 00:35:13,740
you had a little a little hint if you checked
out my bundle um and you know our relationships

00:35:15,360 –> 00:35:19,860
breaking news we’re together

00:35:22,560 –> 00:35:29,700
um all right so what do you wanna let’s do this
from Oktoberfest because everyone has the smog

00:35:29,700 –> 00:35:34,500
soberfest all right and that is American and
so for those of you who joined us in opening

00:35:34,500 –> 00:35:39,660
the half leader first um this is your typical
kind of Fest beer and then this one will be

00:35:39,660 –> 00:35:45,440
the Merson and you can kind of compare and
contrast the two of them together foreign

00:35:45,440 –> 00:35:46,440

00:35:46,440 –> 00:36:01,140
Town smog city is from who I know Los Angeles
wait am I right yeah Torrance Torrance California

00:36:02,640 –> 00:36:10,380
it’s the same smog pile yeah so they’re
interesting they um oh and this is later

00:36:12,300 –> 00:36:19,740
yeah interesting certainly lighter certainly
lighter than the other one yeah it’s pretty

00:36:19,740 –> 00:36:24,000
close to that it’s pretty close to that no see
they’re all confusing us but they’re they’re

00:36:24,000 –> 00:36:27,540
labeling here it is it is challenging
this time of year but usually it will

00:36:27,540 –> 00:36:32,400
say somewhere on the back label Emerson
specifically if it is awesome awesome

00:36:33,120 –> 00:36:39,900
and this one says Festival lager yeah and they
just don’t want to make it easy for anything see

00:36:39,900 –> 00:36:43,620
this is why these laws that they have in Germany
and other places are so helpful because it really

00:36:43,620 –> 00:36:47,940
like locks down what what you’re drinking
and what you’re doing and how you’re labeling

00:36:49,020 –> 00:36:54,660
so one of the fun tips and techniques that
we like to share when you’re drinking beer

00:36:54,660 –> 00:37:02,160
and tasting beer um or a little bit and as it
Foams up like that just before it gets to the top

00:37:05,940 –> 00:37:12,540
carefully maybe when it’s not up over More Level
yeah put your hand on the top and kind of let the

00:37:12,540 –> 00:37:17,940
bubbles do their work and release some Aromas and
then it’s going to trap to him trap yeah trap them

00:37:17,940 –> 00:37:22,500
in there and then stick your nose in there and
take a whiff as a way to kind of really evaluate

00:37:22,500 –> 00:37:27,180
concentrate the Aromas yeah and really smell it
a little more and we and we love we actually so

00:37:27,180 –> 00:37:31,440
these little tasting glasses you might think we
only use them for these events we use them all

00:37:31,440 –> 00:37:36,060
the time like at home like we split a beer pretty
much everything we both want to try whatever beer

00:37:36,060 –> 00:37:41,340
we’re drinking um and so we just split them
in here and that way the whole time you’re

00:37:41,340 –> 00:37:44,700
drinking it’s cold we’ll put the rest of the can
in the fridge before you know and then re-pour

00:37:44,700 –> 00:37:48,840
it because if you do open some of these and you
want to save it for a little later if you put it

00:37:48,840 –> 00:37:52,440
in the fridge it will keep the carbonation a
lot better we have a little cooler down here

00:37:52,440 –> 00:37:55,860
actually you might see us reaching down here
occasionally so we’re keeping ours kind of cold

00:37:56,880 –> 00:38:01,140
um and trying to keep them cold because it does
keep the carbonation it keeps that alive a little

00:38:01,140 –> 00:38:06,480
longer if it’s already open but we love these for
splitting beers with someone else in the house or

00:38:06,480 –> 00:38:09,840
just honestly I even when I’m home alone when I
pour it in this and put the rest of the can in

00:38:09,840 –> 00:38:14,760
there keep a cold and then go refill it afterwards
I really enjoy it and we pretty much never drink

00:38:14,760 –> 00:38:20,400
out of the cans because you’re totally missing
this whole Aroma piece when you drink it out

00:38:20,400 –> 00:38:25,260
of the can and if you’ve ever been sick before
and you know your partner orders a pizza when

00:38:25,260 –> 00:38:29,880
you’re sick and you’re all excited thinking like
that’s good and it tastes like cardboard nothing

00:38:29,880 –> 00:38:34,500
because your nose is stuffed and you’re sick like
if you can’t smell what you’re eating or drinking

00:38:34,500 –> 00:38:40,020
you’re missing out on like 80 of the flavors as
well um so it’s really important to be able to

00:38:40,860 –> 00:38:49,200
one of the things that helped that leads nicely
into Jay’s question uh what temperature should I

00:38:49,200 –> 00:38:57,000
be drinking is that and generally dark loggers and
Amber loggers are intended to be consumed a little

00:38:57,000 –> 00:39:04,560
bit warmer than fridge temperature essentially
you certainly don’t want to have them on ice but

00:39:04,560 –> 00:39:11,580
around 40 to 45 degrees is usually pretty optimal
for a darker lager like for medicine and even the

00:39:11,580 –> 00:39:18,060
Amber one even the Fest beer I would say uh it
probably is best served a little bit out of the

00:39:18,060 –> 00:39:22,920
out of the fridge for five minutes or something
like that yeah they’ll warm up as you open it and

00:39:22,920 –> 00:39:29,040
drink it too yeah we often we often joke there’s
a reason why you drink Coors Light and Bud Light

00:39:29,040 –> 00:39:36,060
ice ice ice ice cold right like if there’s really
delicious flavors and Aromas and things going on

00:39:36,060 –> 00:39:39,720
in there you want it a little bit warmer because
that helps you be able to smell them and taste

00:39:39,720 –> 00:39:44,580
them but if it’s really you’re drinking for effect
and it doesn’t have a lot of flavor or Aroma the

00:39:44,580 –> 00:39:50,100
colder it is the more muted it tastes and so even
you know when we go out to eat and we get started

00:39:50,100 –> 00:39:54,780
with white wine at a restaurant oftentimes they’re
pulling it straight out of the fridge and pouring

00:39:54,780 –> 00:39:58,980
it in my glass and I sit there with my hands on
the bowl of the glass warming it up for a minute

00:39:58,980 –> 00:40:02,820
because I can’t smell it I can’t taste it it’s
just like kind of kills all of that when it’s

00:40:02,820 –> 00:40:09,120
too cold yeah I mean in some bars they keep the
white wine in a nice bucket with beer it just

00:40:09,120 –> 00:40:14,820
depends on the plate but no no no no no yeah not
our recommendation move what you want drink it

00:40:14,820 –> 00:40:20,640
the way you want but drink it out you enjoy it for
sure yeah but most most of America serves red wine

00:40:20,640 –> 00:40:26,640
to warm and white wine too cold and if you bring
them and towards them I mean I feel like it kind

00:40:26,640 –> 00:40:35,160
of applies to beer too most beer is served at like
34 degrees you keep them you know glycol lines to

00:40:35,160 –> 00:40:40,860
keep the lines cold and they are served as cold
as they can get them before they start to breathe

00:40:40,860 –> 00:40:46,980
yeah so here’s a fun little fact about Oktoberfest
that I always like to share so there is a beer

00:40:46,980 –> 00:40:53,340
police Squad at Oktoberfest and you might think
that the beer police squad is there in case of the

00:40:53,340 –> 00:41:01,800
unruly who it is under control but the beer police
squad is actually there to make sure that the beer

00:41:01,800 –> 00:41:07,920
in your fees and their full leaders are called
mosques and it’s like M what is this that weird

00:41:07,920 –> 00:41:13,920
backwards V thing that looks like a b but it’s two
s’s yeah um so a full leader the glass is called

00:41:13,920 –> 00:41:19,320
a moth and so the beer in your mouth is supposed
to come up to that line on the glass which equals

00:41:19,320 –> 00:41:26,940
a full leader and sometimes you may got a glass
that’s a tiny bit not as full and the beer police

00:41:26,940 –> 00:41:32,220
squad is there to enforce that is that amazing so
they have a whole team of Phillies going around

00:41:32,220 –> 00:41:36,960
it’s like eyeballing where they’re pouring and
being like no no no no you shorted them a few

00:41:36,960 –> 00:41:43,260
sips there like they take it very seriously I’m
glad they’re there on our side yeah they they does

00:41:43,260 –> 00:41:47,520
say that it rarely happens and that the people
who are pouring the beers Oktoberfest are masters

00:41:47,520 –> 00:41:53,520
of their crafts and know how to dislike time it
without even thinking if anything they’re overporn

00:41:54,180 –> 00:42:04,560
yeah it’s very easy to hit that and still get
a nice head without being concerned about yeah

00:42:04,560 –> 00:42:12,420
for sure yeah Ma is the German word describing the
amount of beer in a regulation mug regulation mug

00:42:13,620 –> 00:42:22,380
in modern times exactly one liter moth
is also like common um oh did you already

00:42:22,380 –> 00:42:28,200
pour me one of these yeah that was darn
now we have three I have too many beers

00:42:30,060 –> 00:42:36,840
um yeah I think is the official missile official
name for it it’s funny I really want to go to

00:42:36,840 –> 00:42:41,160
Oktoberfest but like with every passing year I
get a little more and more nervous about it like

00:42:41,160 –> 00:42:45,420
I’m just not sure if it’s going to be like
this wild rager of like college party like

00:42:45,420 –> 00:42:51,300
this like oh man this is like too much for me or
if it’s gonna be really like a culturally like

00:42:52,020 –> 00:42:56,640
you know like or if it’s somewhere in between like
it does feel very overwhelming and I have heard

00:42:56,640 –> 00:43:00,960
it’s kind of similar to Burning Man for those
of you who are familiar with Burning Man where

00:43:00,960 –> 00:43:06,660
it’s like you really want to go with people who
have been before and people who like no because

00:43:06,660 –> 00:43:12,300
they’re I think there’s a lot of like get your
tickets for these tents at a certain time there’s

00:43:12,300 –> 00:43:16,440
these activities there’s these like if you want
to go to restaurants the week you’re there like

00:43:16,440 –> 00:43:21,360
that’s a whole ordeal like I think there’s a lot
of like logistical to maximize your experience

00:43:21,360 –> 00:43:25,920
you got to kind of know what you’re doing a
little bit yeah I mean as many people as there

00:43:26,640 –> 00:43:33,420
and I do understand that the beer Halls um
it’s not like reservations for the beer Halls

00:43:33,420 –> 00:43:38,100
go on sale at the same time for
all the beer Halls each beer hall

00:43:39,420 –> 00:43:43,440
um run by each of these people are
right six breweries yeah I think there’s

00:43:45,600 –> 00:43:51,360
there’s more than just the sticks in terms of
halls there are other Halls that also do food

00:43:51,360 –> 00:43:55,020
and random things like that it’s just that those
six beers are going with better schools there

00:43:56,160 –> 00:44:05,700
um and when each one of them puts their
reservations up for you know for grabs at

00:44:05,700 –> 00:44:10,560
different times and with different stipulations
yeah minimum of eight people minimum of 10 people

00:44:10,560 –> 00:44:14,460
yeah that’s the other reason it’d be nice to go
to other people that have been before because you

00:44:14,460 –> 00:44:21,240
need a lot of people uh you know get a get a table
maybe raise reservation maybe we’ll have to we’ll

00:44:21,240 –> 00:44:25,260
expense it and we’ll go scope it out for all of
you and we’ll like figure it out and then we’ll

00:44:25,260 –> 00:44:30,660
plan a trip for all of us I do feel like I know a
few people have gone and they they have said it’s

00:44:30,660 –> 00:44:36,180
like yeah it’s very helpful to do that yeah Jay
I agree six million from around the world does

00:44:36,180 –> 00:44:44,880
sound more like fast yeah that’s right but at
the same time it’s a family friendly event you

00:44:44,880 –> 00:44:51,780
know there at least until like the early evening
kids as young as as infants are there I think

00:44:51,780 –> 00:44:58,320
after like you know seven or eight or something
like that anyone under the age of six has to go

00:44:59,340 –> 00:45:03,720
but still that means that there’s you know
12 year olds hanging out until the festival

00:45:03,720 –> 00:45:07,320
closes we’re on a legal drinking age of 16
so they’re 16 year olds there the whole time

00:45:08,760 –> 00:45:13,800
um so I feel like in that regard it’s probably
you know there’s probably some people that get

00:45:13,800 –> 00:45:20,460
drunk but I don’t think it’s like the Americans
I don’t know okay that’s probably part of my

00:45:20,460 –> 00:45:25,260
thing is like when I’ve gone to America in
Oktoberfest things they’re just like [ __ ]

00:45:25,260 –> 00:45:33,420
shows and culturally I do feel like while Germans
are like excited and um passionate about something

00:45:35,040 –> 00:45:44,100
[ __ ] maybe they’re not a particularly exuberant
yeah that’s true uh people at least my dad’s side

00:45:44,100 –> 00:45:51,540
of his family isn’t yeah a little more restrained
where in Munich does Oktoberfest take place oh

00:45:51,540 –> 00:45:55,920
whoever entered the Watson is very close it’s
just a different spelling down there the Bison

00:45:57,180 –> 00:46:05,700
um so this bison it’s basically is Teresa’s
green Teresa was the uh the bride from was it

00:46:06,420 –> 00:46:11,040
Saxony hilbertsville Paxton Hill
Grant uh you know Grant burger

00:46:11,040 –> 00:46:15,060
that married the princess uh

00:46:15,060 –> 00:46:23,460
yeah yeah what do you think of this small
silver Fest I feel like it’s so fun because

00:46:23,460 –> 00:46:28,080
like we always we love Oktoberfest we love
this event we love doing this every year but

00:46:28,080 –> 00:46:32,700
the the style is one style of beer you know
or two styles of beer really and so sometimes

00:46:32,700 –> 00:46:36,900
it can be a little bit like people kind of
tastes the same but I feel like these three

00:46:36,900 –> 00:46:42,960
that we’ve tasted so far are very unique actually
considering they’re very similar in style I agree

00:46:43,620 –> 00:46:47,340
comparing this one to the half acre um

00:46:49,800 –> 00:46:52,200
I would say this one has a little bit more like

00:46:52,980 –> 00:46:58,080
Maybe nuttiness and almost like a
little bit of like white chocolate

00:46:59,340 –> 00:47:04,380
it definitely has a sweetness to it maybe or
on the nose in particular like a roast beef

00:47:06,660 –> 00:47:14,640
almost like chocolate covered almond yeah and
chocolate like or like cashew cashew butter

00:47:15,300 –> 00:47:16,380
I think it’s gonna go delicious

00:47:21,320 –> 00:47:22,320

00:47:22,320 –> 00:47:29,580
there you go which of these will
you not find at Oktoberfest hmm

00:47:31,920 –> 00:47:37,140
wow see you just killed that one too I feel
like Elementary School school field trips

00:47:37,140 –> 00:47:40,800
I probably would have guessed but it is
true there are a lot of families there um

00:47:42,900 –> 00:47:50,520
religious math there’s definitely a crossbow
seating range for sure um I know that much and

00:47:50,520 –> 00:47:57,960
then the religious Mass yeah there’s a crossbow
shooting tent actually you can go into a tent

00:47:57,960 –> 00:48:02,640
there’s like practice your crossbow today
which would be bad I don’t know about that but

00:48:03,480 –> 00:48:08,160
um and then there’s a traditional Oktoberfest
church service that takes place every year in

00:48:08,160 –> 00:48:13,320
one of the tents so there is actually a religious
Mass there um and it’s mostly for the employees

00:48:13,320 –> 00:48:21,120
actually of Oktoberfest but anyone can go in and
attend if they want to interesting um and there

00:48:21,120 –> 00:48:25,260
are School sponsored field trips so you know
the schools bring the kids there to teach them

00:48:25,260 –> 00:48:31,080
all about the culture and teach them all about
you know Oktoberfest and history um and there

00:48:31,080 –> 00:48:35,880
are a lot of horses at Oktoberfest especially
because there was you know originally I think

00:48:38,160 –> 00:48:42,420
um but apparently writing the horses is
very much prompt upon so no pony rides

00:48:45,420 –> 00:48:49,920
yeah I believe that while the horse
races kind of disappeared by the end

00:48:49,920 –> 00:48:54,900
of the 19th century uh my recollection
is that they brought them back on the

00:48:54,900 –> 00:49:00,660
bicentennials and uh 2010 and
did a horse race again yeah

00:49:03,180 –> 00:49:03,840

00:49:13,020 –> 00:49:17,460
ooh that’s a good question yeah
we’re actually I’m bringing um

00:49:19,080 –> 00:49:24,360
I think maybe we talked about this last
last month maybe um we’re going home

00:49:24,360 –> 00:49:27,660
there’s my parents in a week and they live
in Massachusetts and there’s a big Festival

00:49:28,500 –> 00:49:33,720
um there called the baby that we are going to be
going to and there’s a it’s a Fairground and there

00:49:33,720 –> 00:49:37,560
are six permanent buildings on the fairground
there are all they’re they’re modeled after the

00:49:37,560 –> 00:49:41,880
state buildings of east of the New England states
and so there’s a Massachusetts State Building and

00:49:41,880 –> 00:49:45,960
a New Hampshire State Building and they’re
permanent and part of the fairgrounds that

00:49:45,960 –> 00:49:49,860
are there year round and they can do for other
things and so that always makes me think of it

00:49:49,860 –> 00:49:54,240
but yeah it’s permanent Fairgrounds that that
kind of stumps me because I would guess that

00:49:54,240 –> 00:50:02,940
they that they are at October 5th just because
they’re massive I can’t imagine that that you

00:50:02,940 –> 00:50:07,560
know Municipal Park is do you think you could
use them for other things you know like have

00:50:07,560 –> 00:50:12,900
other events there have service to lay there all
right let’s see it all right the answer is the

00:50:12,900 –> 00:50:19,500
big reveal false yeah okay each year the whole
October Fest is constructed from scrap and I’m

00:50:19,500 –> 00:50:25,620
taking down afterwards so construction begins in
June so they start building it in June um and but

00:50:25,620 –> 00:50:31,320
the planning for it starts like in March and then
it’s all broken down and put away but it takes 3

00:50:31,320 –> 00:50:36,900
000 workers 10 weeks to construct Oktoberfest
and then it takes five weeks to take it all down

00:50:37,920 –> 00:50:43,920
yeah that’s not sustainable yeah six days of the
same thing that does not sound sustainable before

00:50:43,920 –> 00:50:47,520
they cared about the kids well I mean I guess
they’re giving some people some jobs I wonder

00:50:47,520 –> 00:50:52,440
if they deconstruct it and then reconstruct
it using the same material area because it’s

00:50:52,440 –> 00:50:57,720
like I would think I would hope so I would
think that they’re not like from scratch I

00:50:57,720 –> 00:51:01,020
would hope I mean that that should be part of
our sustainability initiative I would imagine

00:51:03,480 –> 00:51:06,720
Aaron I’m going to breathe this through
some of these um yeah yeah while you’re

00:51:06,720 –> 00:51:12,180
doing that but I was also thinking when
you said three thousand workers 10 weeks

00:51:13,380 –> 00:51:20,460
six million people some of these tents so the
biggest tens I think holds 12 000 people so

00:51:20,460 –> 00:51:29,160
it’s like uh you know a college basketball arena
um and even even like the small ones still fit a

00:51:29,160 –> 00:51:38,220
thousand people yeah I mean that that’s huge yeah
that’s so big now it’s a lot of work for sure

00:51:40,860 –> 00:51:44,100
oh you know this when you said this at the
beginning of the session no that’s right it

00:51:44,100 –> 00:51:49,740
did and a couple of you remembered but I also
said the other one that people are remembering

00:51:49,740 –> 00:51:57,360
yeah so the how do you say the first one that’s
the law the German Purity law about how to make

00:51:57,360 –> 00:52:06,180
it here and the oh yeses is what they say
to say yeah to kick off Oktoberfest for sure

00:52:10,200 –> 00:52:13,200
back did you open up the Bob toberfest

00:52:15,480 –> 00:52:19,140
I’m curious if you’re thinking
it posted to American or if it’s

00:52:19,140 –> 00:52:24,180
American or if it’s you say it
said it on the bathroom okay

00:52:27,060 –> 00:52:30,900
all right we want to open one more

00:52:33,600 –> 00:52:39,780
um which one are you uh serious about I’m kind
of curious about this one well I don’t know

00:52:41,700 –> 00:52:49,500
half anchor or I I really like half acre’s
Instagram feed I’m gonna I’m gonna pick the

00:52:49,500 –> 00:52:55,200
scenes I like there I mean because it’s got
pretzels I do like this I’m leaning towards

00:52:55,200 –> 00:52:58,860
this one first because I feel like this this
can keep catching my eye like it’s very in

00:52:58,860 –> 00:53:03,240
this morning that was so funny I had no idea
that was pretzels until you just said that oh

00:53:03,240 –> 00:53:10,320
I have I’ve had this pan sitting on my desk for
like ever and I just saw it as like yellow design

00:53:11,520 –> 00:53:17,820
um that’s so cute really cute really yeah it
is really fun to see the different Canon art

00:53:17,820 –> 00:53:22,260
um do you guys remember when like all craft
beer was in bottles that like you know one

00:53:22,260 –> 00:53:28,740
for craftier in cans and everyone was like no
no no like that’s like we will repeat that yeah

00:53:28,740 –> 00:53:34,140
it’s so fun to see all the creativity and how
they partner and collab with these like local

00:53:34,140 –> 00:53:40,080
resident artists to create their specialty like
hands it’s really quite a big fun part of the

00:53:40,080 –> 00:53:46,200
beer culture now I think that would have never
existed a lot harder to do it with bottles I think

00:53:48,600 –> 00:53:57,420
yeah for sure I particularly like this
one because of the way I like noise

00:54:03,780 –> 00:54:09,120
yeah I mean I feel like these two with
the pretzel and the beer and then this

00:54:09,120 –> 00:54:13,860
one these are like you’re all set for
your October yeah you have your pretzels

00:54:13,860 –> 00:54:18,780
all right ready to go

00:54:21,060 –> 00:54:28,440
um so this one is bear State Co-Op and this
was only the third co-op Brewery in the country

00:54:29,580 –> 00:54:34,980
um and they actually it was a group of friends
who played rugby together and had this idea that

00:54:34,980 –> 00:54:43,440
they wanted to like start a brewery and they were
in Austin I believe and they went to what was the

00:54:43,440 –> 00:54:50,940
name of the other written down somewhere here
Black Star Co-op in Austin so Black Star Co-op

00:54:50,940 –> 00:54:55,680
is a brewery out there in Austin and they went
there together and they were like oh interesting

00:54:55,680 –> 00:55:01,500
a co-op Brewery um that really because they were
homebrewers already and they really felt like

00:55:02,220 –> 00:55:05,700
you know when you’re home brewing you’re in
all the details and you understand the whole

00:55:05,700 –> 00:55:10,620
process and you’re really like in it all but then
when you work at a brewery there’s so much that’s

00:55:10,620 –> 00:55:15,240
like behind closed doors and like you’re not you
don’t have access if you’re not the person who

00:55:15,240 –> 00:55:20,400
does that and so they really felt like this idea
of a co-op Brewery would kind of like make working

00:55:20,400 –> 00:55:25,680
at a brewery a little bit more transparent and
that everyone would be a part of it and so they

00:55:25,680 –> 00:55:32,460
started the third only the third in the Country
Co-op Brewery um and they have 2 000 members today

00:55:33,420 –> 00:55:37,380
um that’s really cool and yeah and so
they’re really very big about community

00:55:37,380 –> 00:55:40,920
and giving back to the community and having
the community be really a part of their process

00:55:42,600 –> 00:55:47,640
so again well the same style
I would say is the half acre

00:55:48,780 –> 00:55:57,360
um and this mocktoberfest this one has a pretty
distinct aromatic profile the departure wants more

00:55:57,360 –> 00:56:05,880
yeah Freckle exist does have a little bit more of
the bittering Hops that are maybe non-traditional

00:56:17,940 –> 00:56:25,500
yeah comparing these two so the interesting Zach
when you get your um Disco gift because the fears

00:56:25,500 –> 00:56:34,620
that you gotten replacement can are they all
Americans I guess they are yeah Americans I think

00:56:34,620 –> 00:56:39,000
they’re all American there’s more of a factor
oh we thought that one was going to be easier

00:56:40,380 –> 00:56:46,920
um but then these three are all best years so
you’ll get the other end of the spectrum with that

00:56:51,540 –> 00:56:57,720
uh that’s a good point yeah doing candy machines
that says what’s expensive is very expensive and

00:56:57,720 –> 00:57:03,480
they didn’t have like multiplication yeah and
I mean anytime you’re already doing something

00:57:03,480 –> 00:57:07,320
one way and then you want to do it a different
way that’s an investment to kind of get started

00:57:07,320 –> 00:57:12,120
with that and if you’re familiar with you know
bottling that’s something that you can very easily

00:57:12,120 –> 00:57:19,260
do at home with just a simple simple device to
charge the crown cast on all right what is New

00:57:19,260 –> 00:57:24,840
Girls could be very good word for Tears no a kind
of bratwurst well now that just makes me hungry

00:57:25,980 –> 00:57:31,080
um leftover beer it is left over beer and so
that is what it is called when you have just

00:57:31,080 –> 00:57:37,440
like a little bit of beer left in your glass and
apparently on Oktoberfest it is a big No-No to

00:57:38,220 –> 00:57:43,440
for the leftovers from this one in
your new year before you finish this

00:57:43,440 –> 00:57:46,920
big no no like you’re just supposed to discard
that little bit of error that’s at the bottom

00:57:48,180 –> 00:57:53,640
why would you just finish it well you can do that
I suppose but apparently they have a whole name

00:57:53,640 –> 00:57:57,300
for it because it’s like just dump that little
bit out like don’t drink that it’s been in your

00:57:57,300 –> 00:58:02,160
cup to last too long it’s probably a little warm
it’s probably a little bit like that’s not what

00:58:02,160 –> 00:58:06,720
you want to do okay so if you’re seeing kind
of Being Greedy with your beard like popping

00:58:06,720 –> 00:58:11,640
off your old one with your new one they’re just
gonna come over and be like no no yeah that’s

00:58:11,640 –> 00:58:16,020
interesting I always think that that would
be that wouldn’t be a word for it because

00:58:16,980 –> 00:58:22,920
the inappropriate thing to do is to lead
leftover beer in your glass like how come

00:58:22,920 –> 00:58:26,640
you didn’t finish that before you went and got
another one but I get it like it’s a meter so

00:58:26,640 –> 00:58:31,860
it’s going to get warm it’s going to get flat yeah
unless you’re really going after it right right

00:58:36,600 –> 00:58:41,040
yeah it’s interesting the the sweetness of
that one following that with this one is

00:58:41,820 –> 00:58:46,620
it’s a little challenging to go into this most
bitter and relatively into the other direction

00:58:46,620 –> 00:58:51,000
the sweeter one yeah

00:58:56,160 –> 00:59:00,300
and Oakland is like a lot more roasted instead of

00:59:00,300 –> 00:59:03,480
because it’s kind of a little
bit and that’s not that drying

00:59:04,320 –> 00:59:08,940
bitterness kind of in in the middle of my tongue
well and that was the original order we were going

00:59:08,940 –> 00:59:13,140
to go in with this we’re gonna be the second but
with people having different fears all about them

00:59:17,520 –> 00:59:21,480
all right we have a few poll questions left and
then everyone get ready if you want to get on

00:59:21,480 –> 00:59:27,840
camera and hang out with us and talk to us for
for doing that next as long as you have your

00:59:27,840 –> 00:59:34,620
uh the appropriate attire no it’s okay although
if you have that for the Tyrone brownie points

00:59:34,620 –> 00:59:40,260
for you uh one of the answers in the also was the
bavarians barrel hat but what is this actually I

00:59:40,260 –> 00:59:46,200
can’t remember I feel like we knew last year and I
don’t think I have a full question for that either

00:59:47,340 –> 00:59:53,040
um this is a fun one what does what is what do
the giant Cupids at Oktoberfest going forward

00:59:53,040 –> 00:59:58,860
the first question is like why are there stupid
but apparently and I’ve seen pictures of this

00:59:58,860 –> 01:00:08,580
they’re like Giant on top of like full stupid
like kind of all over the place um and so the

01:00:08,580 –> 01:00:13,980
exits of the crossbow Street and range the
first aid stations were above the bathroom oh

01:00:16,920 –> 01:00:24,480
your guess what’s your guess I I hope it’s
about 30. it is all right in the bathroom

01:00:24,480 –> 01:00:29,580
that’s great which I know it is great like
what kind of thing like you these are maybe

01:00:29,580 –> 01:00:34,440
the exits you know but like when you’re
drinking a lot of beer you urgently to be

01:00:34,440 –> 01:00:38,160
like of course they have some kind of visual
of like how do I get to the closest bathroom

01:00:38,940 –> 01:00:54,120
that makes sense because uh chiral
is the northern part of Italy

01:00:55,140 –> 01:01:00,660
that butts up against the southern part of
like Germany Austria I’m not sure if the

01:01:00,660 –> 01:01:06,060
throne border there Austin we’re there okay
and bavarianism in southern part of Germany

01:01:14,640 –> 01:01:18,060

01:01:29,580 –> 01:01:33,540
I feel like 99 hopefully you hear that

01:01:37,020 –> 01:01:41,460
um I’m kind of like why would you hear the
Chicken Dance YMCA or Take Me Home Country

01:01:41,460 –> 01:01:49,300
Road Oktoberfest because those are all like songs
that you know a brass band can even play [Music]

01:01:50,880 –> 01:01:58,440
because well if you’ve ever been to an Oktoberfest
in America the chicken dance is very prevalent

01:01:59,100 –> 01:02:05,220
very prevalent I don’t know what it is about
Oktoberfest and the chicken dance but if well

01:02:05,220 –> 01:02:09,720
maybe you can see so many roast chicken yeah
I mean that’s you know yeah but apparently in

01:02:09,720 –> 01:02:14,880
Germany you are not going to hear the chicken
dance at all but apparently you are going to

01:02:14,880 –> 01:02:21,660
hear taking a Home Country Roads a lot like like
they really like that song and so they’re playing

01:02:21,660 –> 01:02:27,900
that a lot and they’re also playing the YMCA I
think that you do a chicken dance there or it’s

01:02:27,900 –> 01:02:32,880
like a chicken dance hat or something maybe
not a chicken dance maybe there’s a chicken

01:02:32,880 –> 01:02:38,160
hat like the feather like you see some of these
have and they’ve got these these feathers that

01:02:38,160 –> 01:02:45,720
are like you know they look like you’re the the
marching guy in the front of the parade that they

01:02:48,060 –> 01:02:52,380
differ great great I love it

01:02:53,400 –> 01:02:59,160
um one more we’ll be done a few we could
move on say the quiz oh no the quiz is done

01:02:59,880 –> 01:03:04,620
um and before we have turn it over and let
everyone who wants to turn their cameras on I

01:03:04,620 –> 01:03:11,640
know we’ve had a few more people join us while we
got started here and so I just want to mention one

01:03:11,640 –> 01:03:15,840
more time for those of you who are interested
in next month’s tip Scout kit we have a very

we discovered um to add to the kids was at the

01:04:41,340 –> 01:04:47,700
distillers conference so we were at the filler
conference and someone who actually embarrassingly

01:04:47,700 –> 01:04:52,020
like recognize me from it from Instagram and
social media and I was like oh we call you you

01:04:52,020 –> 01:04:55,800
know so she came up to us and was talking to us
and I mentioned that we were doing an American

01:04:55,800 –> 01:04:59,580
single Mall kid and she said oh my God we just
launching one and I have it in my pot in my purse

01:04:59,580 –> 01:05:04,500
you want to taste it and so we tasted it and Evan
tasted it and he actually does it mean when he

01:05:04,500 –> 01:05:09,060
needs it he’s like I feel like that might be my
favorite single malt I’ve hated in like all the

01:05:09,060 –> 01:05:13,200
American single multitation so far and they just
launched it um and they’re pretty neat Distillery

if you like these if you want to get more of

01:07:03,420 –> 01:07:09,060
these make sure to go do that quickly or sell
out fast and so some of these they might not

01:07:09,060 –> 01:07:14,040
even have I think these three I believe they
don’t have anymore so it’s going to be valuable

01:07:14,040 –> 01:07:18,600
they might be getting more of the main things
that is still the season but but they only you

01:07:18,600 –> 01:07:24,840
know they only make them once a year yeah so once
they’re done with what they made that year you’d

01:07:24,840 –> 01:07:30,840
probably commit and usually they’re released in
August so by the time you know October actually

01:07:30,840 –> 01:07:35,340
hits uh they’re released in August but they’re
really hard to find until about mid-september

01:07:35,340 –> 01:07:40,380
you know like like at the brewery you can find
them Anonymous but in stores and so that’s also

01:07:40,380 –> 01:07:44,820
why we love doing Oktoberfest every year we
don’t do many receive events and zip scalp

01:07:44,820 –> 01:07:49,140
but we do Octoberfest every year because it’s
fun to get to try these from breweries all over

01:07:49,140 –> 01:07:54,480
the country when there are limited time kind of
release every time um the new one you know yeah

01:07:54,480 –> 01:08:01,800
all right you like them as much as we do all
right dude some of you probably got that from

01:08:01,800 –> 01:08:06,060
panelists thing if you missed it and I
already sent it over to you and you want

01:08:06,060 –> 01:08:10,800

everything right over here how you guys doing
oh we’re doing good yeah you enjoy your viewers

01:09:52,020 –> 01:10:00,360
yes yes we really liked the the smog City quite
a bit yeah it’s pretty good yeah wait do you know

01:10:00,360 –> 01:10:06,240
what’s what’s in our glasses now and I don’t know
this is the best beer from Occidental this is this

01:10:06,240 –> 01:10:12,300
that’s clear and then the half anchorism here
what are these two um this is my smart silver

01:10:12,300 –> 01:10:17,580
pad so if you want to look at the colors here
what do I have in front of me what’s happening

01:10:17,580 –> 01:10:21,540
yeah I like the fox number facts a lot too hot too
really like this half acres I mean you guys get

01:10:21,540 –> 01:10:27,720
this one I’ll be seriously I like this one a lot I
wonder if I like this one so I wonder if there’s a

01:10:27,720 –> 01:10:34,080
um what’s it called a bunch of things because I’m
drinking it out of like a half clear Thing versus

01:10:34,080 –> 01:10:40,500
this right I would say that there is no chance
there’s that newly Lincoln that just means you

01:10:40,500 –> 01:10:49,140
got to drink them all out of the yeah we need
another couple of these nice signs I actually

01:10:49,140 –> 01:10:56,280
have one of those like the big boy Steins that
I when I was in my 20s I stole out of a bar in

01:10:56,280 –> 01:11:02,520
like this teeny tiny purse I’m like my friend
and I were in the bar and I was like handing I

01:11:02,520 –> 01:11:07,860
was emptying out my purse under the table to her
and I just shoved this style and then and just

01:11:09,120 –> 01:11:17,520
for a little bit I had one of the full
white leader-sized ones uh years and

01:11:17,520 –> 01:11:26,820
years ago that a friend of mine made for our
group of friends and not the glass but like

01:11:28,500 –> 01:11:34,680
I was like whoa that would be really cool um they
were you know traditional ones but he’s an artist

01:11:34,680 –> 01:11:40,080
and so he got him and like painted with like a
whatever non-toxic kind of like acrylic paint

01:11:40,080 –> 01:11:46,260
they could go through the dishwasher um you
know different like imagery on each one that

01:11:46,260 –> 01:11:51,660
pertain to that particular person like things
that they liked or were known for nicknames

01:11:52,320 –> 01:11:56,760
stuff like that uh and engage them
all to it one year for Oktoberfest

01:11:58,080 –> 01:12:05,280
um and tragically it broke ten years ago but
then you have fond memories of that Corbin

01:12:05,280 –> 01:12:12,120
still has his oh yeah that’s fun yeah Evan’s
friend Zach um who actually usually joins us

01:12:12,120 –> 01:12:20,340
for Oktoberfest and is our our beard beer the
throne he’s a beer judge makes his own beer hey

01:12:20,340 –> 01:12:25,080
nice yeah he makes some of the best beer I’ve
ever hated honestly like like even compared to

01:12:25,080 –> 01:12:28,980
life I think next year because he always makes an
Oktoberfest beard so we can get them to make it

01:12:30,240 –> 01:12:35,220
that would be really cool but he has an
Oktoberfest party every year too and I

01:12:35,220 –> 01:12:40,320
miss it every year I’m never here for some
reason but they all do the thing in two weeks

01:12:40,320 –> 01:12:44,460
two weeks or something yeah and he’ll have
his October Festival there which is great

01:12:45,540 –> 01:12:57,000
yeah Tom had two different Oktoberfest ears
yeah so cool great name yeah cryptographic

01:12:59,460 –> 01:13:04,200

01:13:04,200 –> 01:13:13,740
oh God that’s the funniest thing is like I’ve been
over there only for a very short amount of time

01:13:13,740 –> 01:13:19,920
went there for a conference but I was in Cologne
and it was like okay where are the beers and like

01:13:20,940 –> 01:13:26,760
this is our beer the culture you’re like okay
cool but like we’re the other one where the other

01:13:26,760 –> 01:13:36,240
ones were like go to another city I’m like no
literally Kohl’s is for cologne for calm you want

01:13:36,240 –> 01:13:42,000
a different beard you go to a different city those
are the rules here it’s like what that’s wild

01:13:42,000 –> 01:13:46,560
yeah there really is something else did you go to
stores at all are the stores they only have like

01:13:46,560 –> 01:13:53,760
that too or do the stores at least yes I was
there for conference and funny thing was like

01:13:54,840 –> 01:14:01,500
it was a student business conference like uh
business student sort of thing and they would

01:14:01,500 –> 01:14:08,100
like freaking play us with rice dwarf every
night like they would have music going till

01:14:08,100 –> 01:14:14,580
2am if you wanted to be there and unlimited
beer in the bottle just like ah here you go

01:14:14,580 –> 01:14:21,960
uh you know whatever it’s a beard no one cares
you know don’t and uh so no I never really got

01:14:21,960 –> 01:14:26,400
into the stores I so I don’t know maybe you could
get them in the stores there but at least in like

01:14:26,400 –> 01:14:31,440
went to a couple weeks you can get free
beer until two in the morning yeah why

01:14:34,080 –> 01:14:37,020
I think Tom’s got some experience here

01:14:39,960 –> 01:14:47,940
uh yeah and that made sense because the local
beers are on draft and the bars they’re going

01:14:47,940 –> 01:14:55,080
throughout here like I feel like that’s probably
less common to feed bottled beer in Walmart yeah

01:14:55,080 –> 01:14:58,740
I guess that makes sense

01:15:02,520 –> 01:15:06,480
yeah you also had a comment earlier in
the the night where you said something

01:15:06,480 –> 01:15:09,600
about like oh you’re talking about the
different e strains and that sort of thing

01:15:10,740 –> 01:15:15,780
um your your beer friend uh might be interested in
doing something like this where the the Beer Club

01:15:17,400 –> 01:15:21,780
um back in my hometown in East Tennessee
they would do this thing every year

01:15:23,280 –> 01:15:27,300
um where the guy who had the biggest Brewing kid I

01:15:27,300 –> 01:15:31,680
think he had like a half barrel set
up or something like that wood Brew

01:15:33,780 –> 01:15:37,560
um I think 15 Gallons 10 gallons
something like that and then they

01:15:37,560 –> 01:15:42,360
would divide it up five six seven
people the wart the finished wart

01:15:42,960 –> 01:15:49,260
pass it off to a bunch of different people and
each person would use a different strain of yeast

01:15:49,260 –> 01:15:58,140
and it all get back together and you know a month
or so after it brewed and try the differences and

01:15:58,140 –> 01:16:04,980
it’s really incredible it’s just like the malt’s
the same the water everything else is the same

01:16:04,980 –> 01:16:09,540
admittedly different fermenting conditions but
they all try to keep similar as possible but

01:16:10,680 –> 01:16:16,740
it’s a fun experiment if you want to try it man
the market researcher in the I go in my back in

01:16:16,740 –> 01:16:21,000
my corporate days I was a market researcher for
a long time and that’s like a fascinating market

01:16:21,000 –> 01:16:24,720
research study you know where it’s like people
all the variables the same and then changes one

01:16:24,720 –> 01:16:28,860
and then do it again but just change the salon
and like I love that kind of stuff that’s so fun

01:16:29,640 –> 01:16:37,560
so like when I read that you know from the Brewers
like well how much difference does these make how

01:16:37,560 –> 01:16:41,280
much difference does them all take and like you
don’t really know that unless you do that kind of

01:16:41,280 –> 01:16:47,280
like single Focus experimentation you know that’s
why I love when they do that with wine sometimes

01:16:47,280 –> 01:16:53,940
too where like um there’s that place that would
have the exact same line the same Vineyard source

01:16:53,940 –> 01:16:59,820
that they year or the same you know process but
then they would put one in like French Oak and

01:16:59,820 –> 01:17:04,980
one in American Oak and then you would get to
like pry them side by side and it was like oh

01:17:04,980 –> 01:17:09,960
like you know like we all know they’re French
Open Eric nope and that’s open like but it’s so

01:17:09,960 –> 01:17:14,160
fascinating to be able to I mean they did a bunch
of little like side-by-side variables like that

01:17:14,940 –> 01:17:17,520
um it’s not one of your favorite
wineries I know that but they do

01:17:17,520 –> 01:17:21,840
cool stuff like that but it’s
kind of here it is Tom knows it

01:17:22,620 –> 01:17:33,180
those of us in the industry we often refer to
it as Del blado um because they they really

01:17:33,180 –> 01:17:38,400
like they they have very big boards they
have very big and like the people there yeah

01:17:41,520 –> 01:17:46,260
um Tom I’m guessing that you’ve been there
because I don’t feel like they yeah sell their

01:17:46,260 –> 01:17:51,420
wine and Stores um and I guess it’s more about the
customers that go there than the winery because

01:17:51,420 –> 01:17:56,460
the people who go there often go there later in
the day and because they’re open later too yeah I

01:17:56,460 –> 01:18:03,960
mean they’re open a little bit later yeah um when
we would go there we would always go there at the

01:18:03,960 –> 01:18:09,660
end of the day simply because our guests were
capable of going to another Winery yet so they

01:18:09,660 –> 01:18:15,900
left Delgado yeah because of the amount of wine
that they stated before and so which is really

01:18:15,900 –> 01:18:19,380
awesome if you’re there and you’re you know and
you’re like I get to try all these experiments

01:18:19,380 –> 01:18:24,780
and try all these things but it is you know
you have to be like you have to be very uh

01:18:24,780 –> 01:18:31,920
self-controlled do not actually consume everything
since you’re not tasting out of you know at a

01:18:31,920 –> 01:18:34,860
table most of the time where there’s a
place to dump out where you don’t want to

01:18:34,860 –> 01:18:41,820
finishing everything and you don’t really know
how much you’re drinking because it’s just like

01:18:41,820 –> 01:18:47,400
a little little dose of this one because it’s
also in the barrel and it’s super cool but yeah

01:18:47,400 –> 01:18:52,800
they they definitely had a reputation
among the other wineries in Napa Valley

01:18:54,120 –> 01:18:58,620
um basically the joke was that they didn’t
charge your credit card until the next day

01:18:58,620 –> 01:19:02,580
because they got so many chargebacks from
people that woke up the next morning or like

01:19:03,600 –> 01:19:11,640
I just bought three cases of wine that cost me
eight thousand dollars [Music] oh no no no no no

01:19:11,640 –> 01:19:18,540
no no no no no no oh gosh but they’re what they’re
wiser their wives are very good yeah um but that

01:19:18,540 –> 01:19:24,360
was that was an interesting refutation yeah well
and I also think like if you know what you’re

01:19:24,360 –> 01:19:28,800
doing and you’re in a cave you’re very comfortable
sitting on the ground and you know that that’s

01:19:28,800 –> 01:19:34,080
okay you know there’s there’s the drain right
exactly the greens right there and like so but a

01:19:34,080 –> 01:19:38,220
lot of people who like are just like visiting and
not come like they’re just like oh I guess they

01:19:38,220 –> 01:19:43,320
better drink all this and they like feel like
they have to drink it all you know so the name

01:19:43,320 –> 01:19:51,120
might ring a bell and maybe Tom since he’s been
there you you know the the main thing Dave Delgado

01:19:52,800 –> 01:20:04,020
um used to be seen on late night television in
between shows commercials how to make money buying

01:20:04,020 –> 01:20:11,280
and selling real estate with me Dave Delgado and
he was wearing a Blazer that had dollar symbols on

01:20:11,280 –> 01:20:17,220
it it was a bright green Blazer do you remember
this right now how to make money selling buying

01:20:17,220 –> 01:20:22,620
and selling real estate with Dave Delgado and he
made a lot more money selling those manuals than

01:20:22,620 –> 01:20:27,180
he ever did buying and selling real estate well
I mean whatever he did he did right because he

01:20:27,180 –> 01:20:34,320
did rewind the results yeah they the application
then there’s the original one in Atlas P or down

01:20:34,320 –> 01:20:41,880
uh by the road up to Atlas Pete um but yeah I’ve
only been here I’ve only met the original one uh

01:20:41,880 –> 01:20:47,340
someone kind of one next to West yeah and I really
like that one yeah and what sounds great as well

01:20:48,120 –> 01:20:52,260
yeah so funny I mean I love those market
research experiments though I think that’s

01:20:52,260 –> 01:20:56,460
the best way to learn and I imagine like
if you’re a brewer or you’re a winemaker

01:20:56,460 –> 01:21:02,040
you almost have to kind of do those things to
learn what the influence of all the elements are

01:21:04,260 –> 01:21:04,760

01:21:07,320 –> 01:21:12,960
it’s really good I like that one
October hey will you promote me

01:21:12,960 –> 01:21:21,540

01:22:24,660 –> 01:22:32,340

you’re just wearing it too much huh you did
oh I worked out of Knoxville I helped open

01:22:39,960 –> 01:22:47,580
a German Brewery um but we wore and it
was cheap off of eBay so it it Twitter

01:22:47,580 –> 01:22:53,760
pieces she says German she she really does mean
literally German like the guy owners were from

01:22:54,660 –> 01:23:01,320
somewhere in Germany we’re in Germany and his
parents were coming like came over too and they

01:23:01,320 –> 01:23:09,600
spoke not a whole lot of English oh wow it was
yeah they were yeah actually one of the I think

01:23:09,600 –> 01:23:19,020
the Urban Chestnut Brewery is from Germany as
well yeah all right here we go everyone you ready

01:23:25,020 –> 01:23:31,020
from the beautiful Outrigger Waikiki Beach
Hotel in Honolulu Hawaii we forget to join John

01:23:31,800 –> 01:23:33,660
John and his special guests

01:23:41,100 –> 01:23:45,660
all right that’s probably enough of that
but that’s not what you were looking

01:23:45,660 –> 01:23:50,520
for it’s not quite the one I was looking
for Mr hugs and that looks great oh nice

01:23:51,780 –> 01:24:01,500
oh yours looks pretty authentico yeah that
those are great that looks like my dad yeah

01:24:01,500 –> 01:24:05,340
it looks like kind of like a little like almost
like leatherish true leather well that’s that’s

01:24:05,340 –> 01:24:11,400
that’s the the translation technically yeah it’s
real leather it’s it’s very very warm for Dallas

01:24:11,400 –> 01:24:18,660
this time of year yeah it’s a little warm in
Arizona as well as well yeah that’s awesome thank

01:24:18,660 –> 01:24:26,160
you for dressing up that’s great um yeah Evan I’m
surprised you actually because you often wear your

01:24:26,760 –> 01:24:32,280
your dad but I guess not for on so like this
is your cheaper one but he has his father

01:24:32,280 –> 01:24:39,420
from Germany is it looks very similar to that
actually um well the last time I wore it uh the

01:24:40,320 –> 01:24:47,460
uh suspender disconnected uh yeah I have to I have
to attach that six steps back together better do

01:24:47,460 –> 01:24:53,100
that before your big October party the buttons
are like actual deer horn yeah oh cool yeah look

01:24:53,100 –> 01:25:00,060
at that yeah so my buttons my buttons uh the
actual button Loop kind of like ripped through

01:25:00,660 –> 01:25:04,380
where you are seeing it happen so I
have to figure out a way to reattach it

01:25:06,540 –> 01:25:08,400
I love it

01:25:12,600 –> 01:25:16,380
you know well I mean I guess at least just Dave

01:25:16,380 –> 01:25:19,920
Delgado is telling everyone how to make
nothing but money and like literally he

01:25:19,920 –> 01:25:23,880
hasn’t figured out he has to rewind
he’s one of the names of his books

01:25:28,860 –> 01:25:33,720
maybe we should all follow the lead I mean
yeah the wineries are pretty enough that

01:25:33,720 –> 01:25:39,900
maybe uh maybe he’s on to something I think
it’s interesting that that’s like kind of come

01:25:40,980 –> 01:25:45,960
there’s like a thing among people who come into
money it’s like oh yes let’s get into alcohol or

01:25:45,960 –> 01:25:50,340
Spirits like you’re kind of seeing that with
celebrities now or they’re all I’m sure these

01:25:50,340 –> 01:25:56,940
were like fully formed companies beforehand sort
like or is it or yeah yeah yeah it’s more like a

01:25:56,940 –> 01:26:04,020
marketing play than anything but it’s like oh yeah
theater gin and what Ryan Reynolds and yeah yeah

01:26:04,860 –> 01:26:11,580
what was the recent one that we were
uh last excited bummed about the B2B

01:26:12,600 –> 01:26:20,280
brown sugar bourbon is incredible and save me
box is now involved in it that’s right but he

01:26:20,280 –> 01:26:23,880
didn’t buy it he didn’t buy it he’s like an
investor in it and it sounds it sounds like

01:26:23,880 –> 01:26:28,740
something true it’s kind of like Hands-On and
really like trying to help support the brand

01:26:28,740 –> 01:26:38,700
so far but I can kind of see it to an extent
with famous celebrity type that are famous for

01:26:38,700 –> 01:26:46,140
their art because it is you know depending on
your level of involvement there is an art form

01:26:47,040 –> 01:26:51,240
uh that that goes into of course
distillation or fermentation

01:26:52,680 –> 01:26:57,600
um I feel like Francis Ford Coppola is a good
example yeah has done a very good job of like

01:26:58,380 –> 01:27:05,040
recognizing the virtues and putting the right
people in the front seat of the wine making

01:27:05,040 –> 01:27:10,920
but still wanting to be involved and part
of it um because of the passion you know

01:27:10,920 –> 01:27:20,400
it’s another version another expression of
their artistic side um but the one the you

01:27:20,400 –> 01:27:25,140
know the celebrities that are just like like
it’s a Kardashians bottom brand oh that is

01:27:28,380 –> 01:27:37,620
oh no boy I freaking put that on
a t-ball stick for you didn’t I

01:27:39,600 –> 01:27:46,020
think I’ll admit it is one of my guilty
pleasures when Evan’s not home it is Matthew

01:27:46,020 –> 01:27:49,380
for just having it be a guilty pleasure
when I’m not home yeah no I know because

01:27:49,380 –> 01:27:52,260
we’ll give you otherwise you make so much
fun of me it’s not even enjoyable anymore

01:27:56,640 –> 01:28:01,560
oh you bought that crap uh they’re
very inspiring I have to say

01:28:05,040 –> 01:28:11,880
Jay what do you think of those pretzels
yeah oh I’m I’m eating a bagel just read

01:28:11,880 –> 01:28:17,220
it we’re eating a bagel wait till
you get your pretzels you agree

01:28:18,180 –> 01:28:27,240
I love my pretzel aren’t they so good uh I kind
of I tapped into the case before our session today

01:28:28,260 –> 01:28:32,400
because I I wanted to have one of those pretzels
because I was going to eat one of those pretzels

01:28:32,400 –> 01:28:38,280
I said to myself might as well have one of the
beers of course yeah you’re gonna have a pretzel

01:28:38,280 –> 01:28:42,900
you have to have a beer with it yeah now last year
we only gave everyone two pretzels and this year

01:28:42,900 –> 01:28:47,160
we realized how good they were like no they need
a pretzels over here you know like this is let’s

01:28:47,160 –> 01:28:55,020
not be eaten great touch great touch yeah they’re
from um Amish Country right yeah no Pennsylvania

01:28:55,020 –> 01:29:02,100
Dutch Pennsylvania Dutch Country yeah I guess
Quakers are the more prominent religion and my

01:29:02,100 –> 01:29:07,320
popcorn they’re from Amish country but there’s
a lot of Amish in Pennsylvania in general just

01:29:07,320 –> 01:29:11,760
it’s more I think it’s more in the western part
yeah but I think I think the family’s been making

01:29:11,760 –> 01:29:16,920
these are pretzels since like the early 1900s or
something like it’s a German family and yeah yeah

01:29:19,080 –> 01:29:26,400
um you were talking about you know going
out to uh Germany to do Oktoberfest so I

01:29:26,400 –> 01:29:32,820
was looking around here in Washington state
and there is a German Village in Leavenworth

01:29:32,820 –> 01:29:40,440
a Bavarian Village and uh while you were talking
I looked it up and uh their Oktoberfest is in I

01:29:40,440 –> 01:29:46,260
think two weeks and so who knows maybe I’ll
go go do a little Burberry yeah you should

01:29:46,920 –> 01:29:51,780
yeah and then like they have they have it all
decked out and stuff and that’s sort of like part

01:29:51,780 –> 01:29:56,760
of the tourism of this town out here well yeah
I bet it’s also very pretty at Christmas time

01:29:57,360 –> 01:30:05,820
I bet they do it up for Christmas too yeah does
um I guess you’re not particularly close to Hill

01:30:05,820 –> 01:30:13,560
Country Tom but this Fredericksburg do because
that’s kind of like a Bavarian theme type place

01:30:13,560 –> 01:30:19,620
right yes especially in Dallas a lot of the local
areas have their own Oktoberfest that are all

01:30:19,620 –> 01:30:25,920
going on right now okay okay so the town I live in
is Garland it’s one of the Dallas suburbs and we

01:30:25,920 –> 01:30:32,040
have what we call the Garland guzzler which will
be on Saturday it’s a 0.5 K race around the square

01:30:34,140 –> 01:30:41,400
and you stop for donuts halfway and then you get
a a pint of beer at the end and you guzzle it at

01:30:41,400 –> 01:30:46,860
the end so it’s a lot of fun this is your kind
of race that’s what the turkey thought was I

01:30:46,860 –> 01:30:51,780
did the Turkey Trot it was just like I mean you
can it’s right it’s the morning of Thanksgiving

01:30:52,440 –> 01:30:56,040
yeah you know there’s obviously a
drinking theme and they don’t even

01:30:56,040 –> 01:31:02,460
call it a race they call it Trot right
yeah that’s great same same that’s great

01:31:03,360 –> 01:31:07,800
uh I feel like Clarkdale here normally does a
little Octoberfest thing but yeah that’s true

01:31:08,400 –> 01:31:13,560
and it’s not that fear nothing nothing to write
home about the biggest one in the United States

01:31:13,560 –> 01:31:21,300
is in Cincinnati Oktoberfest is enzymati is
what they refer to it as 70 000 people why

01:31:21,300 –> 01:31:24,360
do they call it Oktoberfest it doesn’t matter
I don’t know that sounds like a Zen Festival

01:31:30,300 –> 01:31:35,940
and then I think the biggest one outside of
Munich is not even in Germany it’s in uh in Canada

01:31:37,620 –> 01:31:46,080
um I think in Edmonton no that’s probably too cold
does Cincinnati have a lot of Germans population I

01:31:46,080 –> 01:31:51,480
mean I think Ohio and like Pennsylvania I love
Pennsylvania have a lot of Germans yeah yeah

01:31:52,740 –> 01:32:00,720
yeah interesting Michigan yeah like that North
like Northern western or northern eastern yeah

01:32:01,800 –> 01:32:07,680
Americans are also really good at co-opting other
holidays I mean yeah absolutely of course ding

01:32:07,680 –> 01:32:13,800
ding ding ding ding the largest one in the country
I would hope there’s also an easy population

01:32:13,800 –> 01:32:24,120
yeah yeah I think I think I have that record
it’s like Miami the biggest Oktoberfest yeah

01:32:25,140 –> 01:32:30,600
interesting we have we have medieval a
big Medieval Festival here that’s what

01:32:30,600 –> 01:32:35,340
Phoenix is known for yeah massive
renaissance fair I don’t know why

01:32:35,340 –> 01:32:39,900
that is in Phoenix Arizona yeah there’s
a lot of Renaissance stuff Happening Here

01:32:41,520 –> 01:32:50,940
I found lots of fun and full you know Iron steel
you know plate armor running around or leather you

01:32:50,940 –> 01:32:56,160
know leopard gherkins and gauntlets and well
you all have the original London Bridge right

01:32:56,820 –> 01:33:04,860
we do lose deconstructed and moved all
the way to uh yeah it’s kind of on the way

01:33:07,500 –> 01:33:15,720
it’s kind of on the way to uh New Mexico
um uh but I can we haven’t driven by itself

01:33:16,920 –> 01:33:23,220
um we have not no um interesting I can’t
remember the lake that it sits across

01:33:24,120 –> 01:33:30,780
I don’t know because they’re weird they’re like
yeah we’ll take it you guys don’t want it anymore

01:33:30,780 –> 01:33:39,840
sure does it look like the current London Bridge
no oh no I mean kind of but the scale is cool yeah

01:33:41,280 –> 01:33:46,680
um new tourist attraction for me to go check
out apparently it’s a it’s a hefty Drive

01:33:47,460 –> 01:33:50,820
and once you get there and you see it you’re
like all right now I have to drive back

01:33:54,660 –> 01:34:00,000
I guess I’d have to be on the way to something
which is the problem is that it’s not really

01:34:00,000 –> 01:34:06,780
on the way to anything that yeah we’ll see maybe
there’s something we can figure out that’s kind

01:34:06,780 –> 01:34:13,380
of on the way sounds like a solution in search
of a problem like yeah like Havasu okay that

01:34:13,380 –> 01:34:21,780
makes sense Havasu that’s right that’s the lake
we were just on a houseboat for a week on Lake

01:34:21,780 –> 01:34:27,480
um Lake Powell oh yeah okay so we’re not really
because it doesn’t have the towers no it doesn’t

01:34:27,480 –> 01:34:30,360
have the towers that’s not it’s not really
that process I don’t need to go see that

01:34:30,360 –> 01:34:37,860
Right audience flagstaffs in Sedona and the Grand
Canyon in a couple weeks oh no kidding very cool

01:34:40,080 –> 01:34:44,700
let us know when you’re here if you want to go
get a group some more yeah we’re we’re out 20

01:34:44,700 –> 01:34:50,160
minutes yeah I’ve been working since Sedona at
a restaurant sometimes okay well we may do that

01:34:51,000 –> 01:34:54,420
yeah yeah we can we can go get a drink somewhere

01:34:56,880 –> 01:35:03,060
um don’t go to Oak Creek Brewery okay all
right sorry sorry I’ll break all the all

01:35:03,060 –> 01:35:10,740
the other breweries in the area I feel like are
worth your time and effort yeah is good no um

01:35:10,740 –> 01:35:19,320
mother Road and Flagstaff is good dark sky and
Flagstaff are good yeah what’s the sister one

01:35:19,320 –> 01:35:24,540
of Oak Creek that’s also in Flagstaff all right
another sister one oh oh that one’s not all that

01:35:24,540 –> 01:35:28,680
great either lumber yard lumber yard yeah they’re
basically the same beers with different names

01:35:28,680 –> 01:35:35,340
on them I thought that was sister or a brewery
yeah yeah there’s a great Distillery here well

01:35:35,940 –> 01:35:50,400
is totally worth checking out it’s called red
wall Distillery and they have just like this

01:35:50,400 –> 01:35:54,420
sitting area and there’s just like Red Rocks
all right there and you can taste through

01:35:54,420 –> 01:36:00,660
their spirits and get a cocktail and like it’s
really it’s quite striking and it’s certainly um

01:36:00,660 –> 01:36:05,220
does a good service that’s right for good
to the spirits yeah they’re they are good

01:36:05,760 –> 01:36:12,000
um yeah I feel the same way but we were
happy with all of them but none of them

01:36:12,000 –> 01:36:15,600
we didn’t have a cocktail though so I’m
not sure about their cocktails but I bet

01:36:15,600 –> 01:36:21,000
their cocktails are done but it’s a local
Eye Doctor Who apparently is very wealthy

01:36:21,000 –> 01:36:26,820
because he like he just builds up this beautiful
Distillery and then I saw on Instagram the other

01:36:26,820 –> 01:36:31,680
day last weekend for football it was just like
come to red wall Distillery the owners buying

01:36:31,680 –> 01:36:37,380
Mexican for everyone until it runs out and
I was just like what like you’re just gonna

01:36:37,380 –> 01:36:41,040
give them free food like all like it’s not
even Tuesday and there’s tacos for everyone

01:36:43,080 –> 01:36:50,760

time of the year to come visit what are you guys

01:36:54,840 –> 01:37:02,280
coming out here for just Vacation Fun um so
we got on the lottery to go into Havasu Falls

01:37:03,000 –> 01:37:09,060
like four years ago and then the pandemic so
we kept getting rescheduled and rescheduled

01:37:09,060 –> 01:37:13,020
so we finally get to go wow that’s
great that’s gonna be a fun trip yeah

01:37:15,420 –> 01:37:20,940
I haven’t done that yet and I want to do that
it’s right we’ve done it before it’s really cool

01:37:22,200 –> 01:37:24,720
I feel like it’s one of those
things that like once you once

01:37:24,720 –> 01:37:28,380
you’ve been there you’re like oh this is
a place that I want to come back to yeah

01:37:29,880 –> 01:37:36,960
the canyon side before you know when we did
a rafting trip but hiking it from the top is

01:37:36,960 –> 01:37:45,720
totally different yeah there’s a bit of uh there’s
a bit of a descent that yeah you’re familiar yeah

01:37:45,720 –> 01:37:51,660
the first mile and a half is just zigzagging down
the cliff face but then it’s like six miles and

01:37:51,660 –> 01:37:56,820
uh of just nothing yeah but then at the Falls
yeah you’ve got to climb down ladders and ropes

01:37:56,820 –> 01:38:02,700
and stuff yeah oh that’s about a story they were
telling everyone some girl got like Frozen on it

01:38:02,700 –> 01:38:07,140
and wouldn’t move up or down and like no one could
no one could do anything yeah oh you gotta just

01:38:07,140 –> 01:38:12,480
throw a rock cider and make her go I don’t it’s
almost like they were the point that they got to

01:38:12,480 –> 01:38:17,700
like after like 20 minutes and she was just like
Frozen in fear and refusing and like no one could

01:38:17,700 –> 01:38:22,500
do anything and they were all just like oh what do
we do we have friends who were guides for it yeah

01:38:23,460 –> 01:38:30,120
yeah I’ve never done either I was gonna go
in like the mid-2000s late 2000s and there

01:38:30,120 –> 01:38:35,460
was a flash flood that like destroyed all the
travertine pool and so now I don’t want to go

01:38:35,460 –> 01:38:43,440
it was all brown instead of the the the blue
color yeah right I understand that they’ve

01:38:43,440 –> 01:38:50,040
uh like not I mean not fully artificially
but they did stuff to like allow the pools

01:38:50,040 –> 01:38:55,440
to rebuild like maybe like did they put like
chicken wire down so that the calcification

01:38:55,440 –> 01:38:59,820
could kind of build up on it I’m not quite
sure I I know that that did work after

01:38:59,820 –> 01:39:05,520
those big floods so I I guess I’ll see in a
couple weeks yeah well please report it back

01:39:06,720 –> 01:39:12,480
that’s great yeah we should do that in the spring
well we don’t have to get on like a yeah like

01:39:12,480 –> 01:39:18,540
you’ve got a bid for a lottery spot like a year in
advance it’s the same as getting River records but

01:39:18,540 –> 01:39:24,780
the thing is is that there it’s a lot easier for
us to get a cancellation last minute we’re here

01:39:24,780 –> 01:39:29,880
because you’re right there yeah as opposed to a
cancellation on a river you have to like have all

01:39:29,880 –> 01:39:37,140
that crap ready to go yeah it makes sense so wait
Tom do I understand that you uh you got to wrap

01:39:37,140 –> 01:39:43,560
down the Grand Canyon you go from the Riverside
yeah so we did it all the way from like me to Lake

01:39:43,560 –> 01:39:49,620
Powell or Lake Powell Lake Mead whatever yeah
all the way down yeah wow that’s fun that’s uh

01:39:49,620 –> 01:39:55,920
yeah that’s one of the more memorable experiences
of of my life that was was doing that that’s cool

01:39:57,780 –> 01:40:07,560
you’ve done it right yeah my parents were like
Rafters before I was born I grew up in a family

01:40:07,560 –> 01:40:14,340
with like all my parents friends are rash buddies
and as parents were teachers so all summer long

01:40:14,340 –> 01:40:18,780
they didn’t have to work and so they would just
like wrapped all summer and Camp all summer and

01:40:19,320 –> 01:40:23,640
be outdoorsy fun all summer play play in the
outdoors sounds like a pretty great way to grow

01:40:23,640 –> 01:40:28,200
up yeah although according to Evan’s parents he
would refuse to take his nose out of a book and

01:40:28,200 –> 01:40:34,980
be like whatever I don’t want to look out the
window I’m reading my hearty boys [Music] you

01:40:34,980 –> 01:40:39,900
know reading a book out my idea of fishing is
sitting next to water and reading a book right

01:40:41,700 –> 01:40:47,820
teaching men to fish right the amount of fish
eats per day teacher man the fish he sits in

01:40:47,820 –> 01:40:57,840
a boat and drinks beer all day [Music] ah that’s
good you know speaking of um things from foreign

01:40:57,840 –> 01:41:05,100
lands and resurrected in America I went to
Detroit not too long ago and I went to the

01:41:05,100 –> 01:41:15,060
Ford Museum and Ford had a obsession with Edison
and so Ford took all these workshops that Edison

01:41:15,060 –> 01:41:23,160
had in England and had them recreate it Brick
by Brick in a playland outside the Ford factory

01:41:24,660 –> 01:41:34,620
and so Ford you know how um you know
our dads or something they may have a

01:41:34,620 –> 01:41:43,080
little train set well Ford had built himself
a village with actual buildings of importance

01:41:43,740 –> 01:41:51,600
and he had them shipped over from Europe and
so on the Ford campus there’s a little village

01:41:51,600 –> 01:41:58,380
called like Green Village or something like that
and you can take a train an actual train around

01:41:58,380 –> 01:42:07,260
the village and see all these famous Hudson
houses and places of note it’s amazing that

01:42:07,260 –> 01:42:14,400
sounds really cool wow yeah right and you went
there so you get to see a billionaires train set

01:42:17,940 –> 01:42:24,300
right yeah and so if you ever find yourself
in the Detroit area you have to go to the Ford

01:42:24,300 –> 01:42:31,320
Museum and you get there early and and there’s
the Museum Part which is in a enclosed space and

01:42:31,320 –> 01:42:39,600
then you have the village of houses of note and
it’s just amazing to see what he spent money on

01:42:39,600 –> 01:42:46,440
and like way back in the day uh he was a very
very wealthy man and he built this this like

01:42:46,440 –> 01:42:53,880
compound of houses that were colonial to I
think rival White House the White House in

01:42:53,880 –> 01:42:59,220
Washington DC and so imagine everything that
you’ve ever seen in Washington DC but a guy

01:42:59,220 –> 01:43:06,720
with a lot more money making them more Grand well
and then a train going all between them yeah yeah

01:43:07,680 –> 01:43:12,720
and and so he had he had his village and
then in the museum he has all of his toys

01:43:13,740 –> 01:43:20,040
and he he collected the the strangest
kind of adjacent thing and he he

01:43:20,880 –> 01:43:29,760
um he collected steam engine machines and
one of the most fascinating machines that

01:43:29,760 –> 01:43:37,920
get collected was a Gothic themed steam
machine yeah like literally steampunk

01:43:39,240 –> 01:43:48,780
um it was goth Punk but it was a steam
engine so Scott steampunk yeah yeah yeah

01:43:49,500 –> 01:43:57,060
and so it was great to see what an eccentric
billionaire had done cool that sounds awesome yeah

01:43:58,380 –> 01:44:05,040
over the top ridiculous things we went
to a rum Distillery wow in Las Vegas

01:44:06,540 –> 01:44:12,120
um when we were at this conference and it happened
also be our anniversary we learned a little and

01:44:12,120 –> 01:44:18,360
did the full thing there’s this rum Distillery
there that they used to be in La they moved over

01:44:18,360 –> 01:44:24,000
to Las Vegas and basically the whole truth of
humanity which is one of the Cirque du Soleil

01:44:24,000 –> 01:44:29,700
shows zumanity closed and this rum distiller
this owner of this rum Distillery was like

01:44:30,240 –> 01:44:34,740
I’ll hire the whole cast of humanity
the show closed bring them over here

01:44:35,280 –> 01:44:42,060
and he’s created this Distillery experience so
it’s in it’s in this area called area 50 Area 15

01:44:43,020 –> 01:44:47,160
um in Vegas and if you’re familiar with what meow
wolf is if you’ve heard of meow wolf there’s one

01:44:47,160 –> 01:44:52,620
in Santa Fe one in Vegas but it’s basically
all these like football field size warehouses

01:44:52,620 –> 01:44:58,800
essentially that each one is like an experiential
something or other and so this one is a rum

01:44:58,800 –> 01:45:05,460
Distillery and he’s themed it as 20 000 Leagues
Under the Sea and he brought in this incredible

01:45:05,460 –> 01:45:13,020
chef and so they do this like 16 course pairing
menu with rum tastings and rum cocktails and rum

01:45:13,020 –> 01:45:17,400
cooked into the food rum cooked into the food
like they literally say on their menu like we

01:45:17,400 –> 01:45:21,960
cannot make the food non-alcoholic we’re sorry
like so if you’re not great like also you’re

01:45:21,960 –> 01:45:31,440
gonna get attacked yeah yeah and don’t Thrive yeah
it was incredible and like each so the the menus

01:45:31,440 –> 01:45:37,620
of four courses for the 16 courses were divided
into four parts and each one was uh in reference

01:45:37,620 –> 01:45:44,520
to a certain part of the novel yeah so there was
like a few days ashore and like through the like

01:45:44,520 –> 01:45:50,700
underwater like Titans uh but when you when you
get there you like check in and they bring you

01:45:50,700 –> 01:45:55,980
into like the waiting room and you walk in and
it feels like you’re in the submarine but like

01:45:56,700 –> 01:46:01,800
like a Titanic Decor kind of Summer you like you
know it’s like decorated with like couches but

01:46:01,800 –> 01:46:08,280
also steampunk and steampunk which is what made
me think of it right um but when you go down

01:46:08,280 –> 01:46:14,400
there all the chandeliers that are hanging are
just like slightly over the way and so you like

01:46:14,400 –> 01:46:18,660
feel like you’re underwater and then there’s like
these mechanical like kind of fish that are going

01:46:18,660 –> 01:46:23,820
with the outside like the windows kind of support
that’s like a porthole and so you sit there and

01:46:23,820 –> 01:46:27,240
they bring you a little rum cocktail while you’re
sitting there and you’re just like what is going

01:46:27,240 –> 01:46:36,000
on and it was the food was incredible there was
those the rum is good um the rum they’re using

01:46:36,000 –> 01:46:41,340
an accelerated aging technique to make the rum and
well like I feel like accelerated aging techniques

01:46:41,340 –> 01:46:46,620
are really getting a lot better than they used
to be and so but they’re I feel like you could

01:46:46,620 –> 01:46:52,020
still tell like there’s a little bit of like
there’s a little a little weird little off but

01:46:52,020 –> 01:46:57,240
it was still delicious and the the cocktails were
really great and the cot and like but every time

01:46:57,240 –> 01:47:02,160
they bring out another course and the courses were
like a bite or three you know it just 16 courses

01:47:02,940 –> 01:47:08,400
um but the service staff they would it was almost
like it felt like a little eyes wide shutty to me

01:47:08,400 –> 01:47:14,340
like where like the service staff would all there
was like one person for two guests and they it was

01:47:14,340 –> 01:47:19,380
a communal table so it’s 16 people at a communal
table and the service staff all comes out in

01:47:19,380 –> 01:47:24,480
unison like marching out with their Edition they
pause and stop behind the people and they wait

01:47:24,480 –> 01:47:29,040
until everyone’s in their position and someone not
and then they place it down in front of you and

01:47:29,040 –> 01:47:34,320
then they wait and then like it’s orchestrating in
like theatrical and there’s a different song with

01:47:34,320 –> 01:47:39,480
every course so like the the song is part of like
the song would start before they started walking

01:47:39,480 –> 01:47:45,360
in with the dishes and yeah very formal despite
the fact that it was very non-standard uh like

01:47:45,360 –> 01:47:50,760
there wasn’t silverware right the presentation
of the dishes being very formal by like the

01:47:50,760 –> 01:47:57,180
choreographed delivery but then uh what do I eat
this with and like that would be some weird thing

01:47:57,180 –> 01:48:03,300
like yeah and then you know one of the cocktails
like garish like parrot tropical cocktail thing

01:48:03,300 –> 01:48:07,680
with like a whole half pineapple sticking out of
it like it was really cool then when you’re done

01:48:07,680 –> 01:48:13,140
with dinner you get to walk around the rest of the
space and he has all these Humanity performers in

01:48:13,140 –> 01:48:21,600
there doing like a dance shows you get to go find
different rum tastings throughout this experience

01:48:21,600 –> 01:48:27,120
and get more rum tastings and like watch these
like up close personal Cirque du Soleil like shows

01:48:27,120 –> 01:48:31,920
highly recommended y’all crazy way weird but it
was really cool it was great I mean you’re there

01:48:31,920 –> 01:48:38,580
for like four hours like it was crazy it was a
really yeah lost spirit is what it’s called Lots

01:48:38,580 –> 01:48:45,420
there tell them about the weirdest dish oh yeah
so one we’re just gonna talk about one of them um

01:48:47,460 –> 01:48:54,780
I didn’t know where to start with this so this
dish in this particular instance was caviar

01:48:54,780 –> 01:49:04,860
sometimes it’s uh sea urchin uni um but the
the crazy part is simply how it serves and it

01:49:04,860 –> 01:49:18,480
is served on a plate that is made from the mold of
the chef’s mouth to the chat made a face like this

01:49:21,060 –> 01:49:26,700
and then they made a mold of her face and then
they made the mold into a plate and then they

01:49:26,700 –> 01:49:31,560
put the caviar on it and she said all right so
pick up the plate and turn your head to the to

01:49:31,560 –> 01:49:39,840
the right because that’s what I like and then
make out with me and you just like lick all the

01:49:39,840 –> 01:49:46,860
caviar out from between her teeth and between her
lips it’s been weird upper tongue yeah it was wild

01:49:48,240 –> 01:49:55,020
taking sensual may be a little too far
yeah and the idea that you knew it was

01:49:55,020 –> 01:49:58,500
her mouth and she said and turn your head
to the right because that’s what I like

01:49:59,580 –> 01:50:05,400
it’s not just a mouth in a plate with the tongue
sticking out that they serve it on it’s her mouth

01:50:05,400 –> 01:50:13,980
yeah pretty freaky have you pulled up the picture
because that that one yeah it’s a little bit

01:50:16,680 –> 01:50:22,200
so like that’s the plate after I ate
off of it but so like all the caviar

01:50:22,200 –> 01:50:25,140
is just like around the tongue and
in the mouth and you’re just like

01:50:25,140 –> 01:50:30,000
licking all around it trying to get the
caviar out like it’s kind of it’s pretty

01:50:30,000 –> 01:50:34,320
ridiculous you wanted it with the food
on it I don’t know if I do all right

01:50:36,360 –> 01:50:41,040
but yeah anyway and then they brought a whole
Pig’s head out and she like butchered the pig’s

01:50:41,040 –> 01:50:46,080
head right there and then like but then there’s
another Chef like kind of you know making these

01:50:46,080 –> 01:50:50,160
types of tweezers making it look make it look
beautiful and then bringing like one little

01:50:50,160 –> 01:50:55,500
bite to you off of this giant Pig’s head like it
was yeah it was pretty insane highly recommend

01:50:55,500 –> 01:51:00,720
for like it’s like a dinner and a show kind
of experience all-in-one yeah you can skip

01:51:00,720 –> 01:51:04,800
the money for Cirque du Soleil tickets and just
do this well especially because they’re like up

01:51:04,800 –> 01:51:08,220
close and personal like stages right here and
they’re like the foot coming in front of your

01:51:08,220 –> 01:51:14,520
feet and you’re just like whoa like it was really
cool yep Suzanne got scared because you thought

01:51:14,520 –> 01:51:20,220
there was going to be an actual live snake on the
dance they made they wanted you to think that they

01:51:20,220 –> 01:51:24,720
did they’re not the only one who sell for that
I mean you’re the only one that moved behind me

01:51:27,780 –> 01:51:34,140
I don’t need a fixed real nature Evan’s always
I got you Evan’s always trying to teach me about

01:51:34,140 –> 01:51:37,380
the snakes in Arizona because he’s like if you
ever get bit by a snake you need to know what

01:51:37,380 –> 01:51:43,800
kind of snake bit and I’m just like all snakes
are bad like I just like no snakes like but

01:51:44,400 –> 01:51:53,220
at least be able to guess confidently that it was
or was not venomous because like I’m ever going to

01:51:53,220 –> 01:51:57,360
remember that in a moment of panic like I’m just
gonna have to remember what the snake looks like

01:51:57,360 –> 01:52:01,980
and be able to explain it to someone right and
that’s what I’m saying is that like being look

01:52:01,980 –> 01:52:07,080
at it and look at the part of it that is going
to indicate probably venomous I’ll take a picture

01:52:07,080 –> 01:52:16,860
please do no like if you get bit do your like
with anything if you get bit by a snake a spider

01:52:16,860 –> 01:52:24,420
a scorpion take effect try to take a picture
uh because living in Arizona is like a bird

01:52:27,420 –> 01:52:32,700
she really wants to move out there I’m gonna
try to apply to grad school out there nice

01:52:34,080 –> 01:52:43,620
what what grad school uh CRNA programs certified
registered nurse anesthetist okay all right most

01:52:43,620 –> 01:52:49,380
of the schools are applying to in Phoenix
or um there’s a program I think it’s a

01:52:51,180 –> 01:52:58,560
I think it’s a University of Arizona maybe uh-huh
yeah yeah they have a lot of uh they have a lot of

01:52:58,560 –> 01:53:04,740
I think their medical program is pretty robust
yeah and I I mean I used to have a friend that

01:53:04,740 –> 01:53:10,020
lived out there and I really loved visiting out
there um it doesn’t really so much cooperate

01:53:10,020 –> 01:53:17,100
with Zach as much with him being redheaded
but um I liked it well at least now there’s

01:53:17,100 –> 01:53:22,500
Bell phones so if you do get bit by something
you can take a picture yeah you know back in

01:53:22,500 –> 01:53:29,820
the day back in the day no I do like living in
Arizona you have to get it get sketch Arts out

01:53:31,500 –> 01:53:36,960
I do like living here I I don’t like all the birds
and or all the bugs and all the stuff as much but

01:53:36,960 –> 01:53:43,500
okay because of it and I also feel like that’s
pretty much because we’re not in Phoenix like if

01:53:43,500 –> 01:53:50,820
we were in Metro Phoenix there wouldn’t be as much
as yeah Nate and but if we were in Metro Phoenix

01:53:50,820 –> 01:53:57,840
it’d be 99 degrees at four in the morning still
yeah this is true yeah Phoenix is Phoenix is hot

01:53:59,040 –> 01:54:04,380
are you all at a higher elevation because I know
New Mexico has like towels that’s pretty high

01:54:06,120 –> 01:54:12,360
yeah well that was 3 500 feet yeah about 3 500
feet in where we are and then you know applied

01:54:12,360 –> 01:54:19,800
staff is 7 000 feet yeah it’s it’s quite temperate
it’s no it snows and Vlogs lots of snow there are

01:54:19,800 –> 01:54:26,580
certain years and it snows here too actually we
get a little snow and Hill forms and yeah I mean

01:54:26,580 –> 01:54:34,560
when it’s like 115 in Phoenix it will be like 105
here you know so it’s it’s significantly so hot

01:54:34,560 –> 01:54:41,340
but but it also cools down at night because like
in Phoenix it’s just concrete everywhere and like

01:54:41,340 –> 01:54:46,380
asphalt and so all day long that’s all absorbing
the Sun and so even though the sun’s not out

01:54:46,380 –> 01:54:53,940
anymore it takes hours for that to radiate back
out yeah so it stays really hot all night long

01:54:53,940 –> 01:55:02,100
whereas up here it’s like it’s since the air is
dry there’s nothing holding moisture yeah so it

01:55:02,100 –> 01:55:06,540
even in the middle of the summer it’s tolerable
outside at night you know but and that makes a

01:55:06,540 –> 01:55:10,680
big difference I feel like when at least at night
you can kind of go outside and enjoy the weather

01:55:11,220 –> 01:55:16,260
yeah open up the windows kind of air up around and
I feel like Tucson is better than Phoenix in terms

01:55:16,260 –> 01:55:26,040
of and Tucson fire over yeah yeah for sure well
good luck in your application process and uh yeah

01:55:27,000 –> 01:55:33,000
yeah I’ll share more scary bugging reptile stories
later we had a friend who called we had a we had

01:55:33,000 –> 01:55:37,140
a good girlfriend who called at like 10 30 at
night the other night we’re both like laying

01:55:37,140 –> 01:55:42,060
in bed getting ready for bed did she calls at 10
30 at night and she’s like I didn’t know how else

01:55:42,060 –> 01:55:46,680
to call it I know the rock rocks are really like
outdoorsy and really like there’s a scorpion in

01:55:46,680 –> 01:55:50,700
my house and I don’t know nothing to do like
he was just like and Evan like tries to like

01:55:50,700 –> 01:55:53,640
talk her through she’s like well you just put
a quick laugh over it and put it you know like

01:55:53,640 –> 01:55:57,840
you get it out and she’s like I can’t leave it I
can’t leave to go get a glass because if I leave

01:55:57,840 –> 01:56:02,700
and I come back and it’s not there anymore like
what do I do you know and so finally at like 10

01:56:02,700 –> 01:56:07,980
45 he’s like do you want me to come over and get
the Scorpion for you yeah she was 20 minutes away

01:56:08,820 –> 01:56:16,080
15 and she’s like yes that’s why I’m calling
you to teach me how to deal with a scorpion

01:56:16,080 –> 01:56:23,700
like please come get the Scorpion I my
friend that lived out there um she I guess

01:56:24,840 –> 01:56:29,400
I know she told me like a separate story that
she was like sitting at her desk in her house

01:56:29,400 –> 01:56:35,880
and then like a scorpion just like fell from the
ceiling and then but then when I went out to see

01:56:35,880 –> 01:56:40,260
her she was just like oh that’s Bob and I’m like
who’s Bob and she was like he’s my pet scorpion

01:56:40,860 –> 01:56:44,580
and she like got a scorpion and
just had it like in a critter keeper

01:56:45,300 –> 01:56:51,120
and she had like that a squirrel that
they found like half dead on the road

01:56:54,180 –> 01:57:03,780
and then like a cat named Stevie and a dog
named spots in her house well ragtag pet

01:57:03,780 –> 01:57:09,840
crew right there I like it I don’t want it
in my house but I like it yeah I hear people

01:57:09,840 –> 01:57:14,280
that had scorpions as pets growing up they
weren’t like the scary little ones Brothers

01:57:15,900 –> 01:57:21,300
smaller they are and the lighter and more
translucent they are the more dangerous things

01:57:22,020 –> 01:57:27,720
I had a friend that had one that was like this big
and it was all black it looked real scary but it

01:57:27,720 –> 01:57:36,720
would feel roughly like an ant bite if it’s on the
animal whereas the little ones won their babies so

01:57:36,720 –> 01:57:42,660
they don’t know how to regulate how much they’re
injecting same good same thing goes for like baby

01:57:42,660 –> 01:57:51,000
rattlesnakes they just inject everything every
time and then they have to replenish however

01:57:51,000 –> 01:57:57,900
orientation to do that and they over time learn
not to do that but when they’re kind of like that

01:57:59,100 –> 01:58:08,340
so we have we have this this giant honking it
was like hairy black scorpions scorpions get

01:58:08,340 –> 01:58:13,140
Harry yeah there’s like little like not hairy
like Shaggy tarantula yeah like tarantula hair

01:58:13,140 –> 01:58:24,540
all over it not for me no thank you oh medieval
it was like prehistoric freaking crazy seems

01:58:24,540 –> 01:58:29,100
like a design flaw there because like the
smallest ones are the hardest ones to find

01:58:31,980 –> 01:58:39,420
you need that UV light oh yeah because they
shine right yeah they they reflect or like

01:58:39,420 –> 01:58:44,520
yeah they’re visible underneath the yeah
that’s what our friend our friend was like

01:58:44,520 –> 01:58:48,600
well now the 14th of my house I guess I have
to go get a UV light and like check for like

01:58:48,600 –> 01:58:52,680
a family and check for a mess and check
for and I was like or you can just move

01:58:52,680 –> 01:59:01,140
just leave the sticks shut the whole house on
fire start over burn it buried in the backyard

01:59:03,180 –> 01:59:10,200
yeah all right friends we gotta go make some
dinner and eat something other than just beer

01:59:10,200 –> 01:59:15,540
what are we gonna have for dinner oh okay now when
you live in Arizona you need a lot of Mexicans

01:59:16,620 –> 01:59:19,800
but it’s like the best Mexican
food you’ve ever had besides Mexico
