Podcast: A rare look at couples brewing from a husband and wife new to all-grain home-brewing.

This episode features fellow home brewers Hayley Dickinson and David Setiawan, a happily married dynamic duo that brews together, as well as many other fun activities. As Hayley filled us in, she takes the assistant brewer role voluntarily and let's David do the heavy lifting, but they both contribute to the process creating an atmosphere of collaboration and passion that anyone would hope for when couples brewing. Our guests also talk about their own podcast, After We Take Out the Garbage, which is a fun spirited improve on random topics with random guests where just about everything is fair game.

Taste Great! Of course, we all imbibe, first with two home brews from our guests which include a interesting Honey Wheat with some unexpected floral citrus notes and a delightful Rhubarb Pumpkin Ale featuring home grown additives. Both were clean and crisp, leaving a pleasant front-end bouquet and with a subtle after taste. Well done kids! Add beer tastings of a delicious traditional Oktoberfest from Central Waters and Pig Minds Briee Kraut, a non-traditional Oktoberfest that's malty, hoppy na d brings a little zing. Plus a rare sampling of Wisconsin Brewing Co's Bourbonified Depth Charge, a barrel-aged Scotch Ale caramelized with hot curling stones during a super-unique annual summer festival in Verona, WI that the Home Brew Rock Stars team has never missed.

We also do some role reversal with our Beer Tag game and let our guests quiz the hosts. David and Haley did a great job to educate us on the origins of their questions, so right or wrong, we all gained some beer knowledge! As well, musical sound clips were featured from Shawn Smith, a Seattle-based songwriter and performer with several solo albums and tours to his credit, along with at least 3 bands (Brad, Satchel and Pigeonhead) of which all sport other Seattle legends, including Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard. Shawn is regarded as Seattle's best kept secret musician and more recently has hit some hard times so we encourage you all to support his beautiful mind and music HERE.
