PODCAST: Tundras talk Rock-n-Roll Beers and why craft beer melds well with music.

This episode goes untraditional for the Home Brew Rock Stars crew while perhaps getting to the root of the podcast's namesake, as we feature Brian Mastrangeli and Cory Wicklund from TUNDRAS, a progressive Midwest band with a passion for well-made craft beer. Tundras talk about their musical beginnings, influences and tales of keeping a band relevant. They also share some musings regarding their introduction to the craft beer world, pointing to a well-timed situation where legal drinking age aligns with an American beer invasion. Add to this a love for the British invasion of rock-n-roll and now you've gotten the gist of this episode.

The show kicks off with a segment reviewing a list of beers that were released by rock bands, which could be appropriately named "the good, the bad and the undrinkable". These would include (ratings from Beer Advocate): Badass American Lager from Kid Rock (19/200), Bastards Lager from Motorhead (49/200), Destroyer from KISS (50/200), Australian Hardrock from AC/DC (19/200), *Razor Hoof from High on Fire (91/200), Trooper Ale from Iron Maiden (94/200), *Toxic Revolution from Municipal Waste (196/200) and *Permanent Funeral from Pig Destroyer (199/200). *collaborations with Three Floyds

BEER TASTING! Of course, it's not a brewing podcast without beer. Thanks to five great beer samples form craft breweries that include: Iron Maiden's Trooper Lager, Pig Minds's Royal Bitch Slap, Rogue's Rolling Thunder, Brent's Peruvian Coffee Porter (home-brew) and Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout.

TUNES: We play a quick round of Beer Tag recalling the best and worst and best band names that were featured in Paste and Ranker magazine (who doesn't like Dick Tator and the Tots, or Gringo Star!?). And of course, we have samples of Tundras music sprinkled throughout the show, including samples from their most recent album called Only Bones Inside, available at Tundras Bandcamp (https://tundrasil.bandcamp.com/) and on Spotify.
