Episode 104 was recorded in Willis,TX at Griffin Meadery. Griffin Founders Bruce and Bridgett Leslie sat down with us in the beautiful tasting room to explain what mead is and all it’s variations. Coffee, fruit, spices and hops are all used in different varieties of Griffin’s meads and they are delicious. They had their official grand opening on Sept 5 and are now offering regular tasting room hours. Also, due the fact that mead is defined as wine under the TABC code it is available for purchase on their website. Willis is a beautiful scenic area north of Conroe and absoloutly worth the short drive to experience Griffin Meadery. Enjoy this honey of a podcast (mead pun) and try some Griffin Meads today.
Episode 103 was recorded in the InterBrews Stew-dio where Josh & TD Mike welcomed in Greg “Mexico” Mendez and Alex Vasquez in from Mississippi via Skype to discuss the fantastic beers that Mexico sent. Both Mexico and Alex work in the craft beer industry in Mississippi. Mexico at Chandeleur Brewing in Gulfport and Alex is one of the founders at Mississippi Brewing also in Gulfport. Along with the treasure trove of Mississippi beer mail that magically appeared at the Stew’d Productions World Headquarters, the guys go deep on all things Mississippi beer.

As always, the Royos are fun to chat and have beers with as we discuss the past 5 years, the next 10 years and what cheeses pair best with their tasty lineup. We got giddy as we talked the pending release of Perpetual Peace and we all got to witness TD Mike become a man.
