TBR 66 – The Peoria Internation Beerfest 2014


Groucho, CHUD and Kevin hit the big city for this years VIP tent at the Peoria International Beerfest.

We had some amazing beers, but really, gained enormous respect for the event that Pat Hartzler and the Peoria Jaycees put on.  It was a spectacle!

This audio show is taken directly from a 25 minute YouTube video that will be released on Monday.  We did cut a 44 minute show, but it was way long, and really needed to be cut down more.  We have left it online, and after we get the better show out, we will be more forthcoming with links.

Thanks again to everyone who helped raise money for the Jaycees… And thanks for the TBR invite!


TBR 65 – Peoria Brewing Company aftershow


We tried to overstay our welcome with Todd and Christian at the Peoria Brewing company, but they were game for all the nonsense that we were spewing on this episode of TBR.  This is a full blown show, don’t think its just a filler piece.  (Well, aren’t they all?)  You get a solid 20 minutes of beer content interweaved with talk about “Chud’s girlfriend at the time”, Clown fears, Stevie Knicks (SP? Didn’t care enough to look it up) and Bob Dylan.  Sounds like a normal show to us!

Thanks again to those guys letting us hang at the Peoria Brewing Company.  Thanks for the free samples and we look forward to all the progress reports on the facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/PeoriaBrewingCompany
