Full Throttle at Tap & Bottle

With the end of Arizona Beer Week withing sight, we closed out the festivities in sudsy style on this live broadcast from Tap & Bottle!

Sarah Ritchie, Matt Russell, Rebecca Safford & Scott Safford

Our celebrity co-host this week was Craft Beer Betty herself, Sarah Ritchie of Arizona Beer & Cider Co. Sarah shared her headlines from that day’s Tucson Craft Beer Crawl, and talked up some beverages that she was pouring earlier in the day. We then fell into the flavors of Venezuela with Marlene Baquet of the Ricuras de Venezuela food truck that was on hand to feed the masses. Listen for the part that caused us to get up and dance! Our featured guests were Rebecca and Scott Safford of Tap & Bottle who told the story behind this popular concept, shared their favorite moments from Arizona Beer Week, offered their perspectives on the local craft brew scene, and treated us to a flight tasting of some of their suds, Safford-style!

They also made a huge announcement on the live show that they’ll be opening a second Tap & Bottle this summer! Look for it near the northeast corner of Ina and Oracle. We love breaking news, we love the Saffords, and we love Tap & Bottle!

 

 

A Crooked Kind of Craft

This show was a celebration of suds for our craft brew loving listeners, and we kicked off Arizona Beer Week in style from a place where crooked is king, the Crooked Tooth Brewing Company!

Gabe Ceniceros, Danny Perez, Matt Russell, Mondo Basurto & Jodee Basurto

Our celebrity co-host was two-time Iron Chef Danny Perez who brought us up to speed on his new gig at Shamrock Foods. We also heard from Allan Conger of 1912 Brewing Company who shared his plans for the upcoming Tucson Craft Beer Crawl. We were then joined by Mondo and Jodee Basurto of Crooked Tooth who told the story behind the concept, the funky name, the brewing philosophy, their flagship brews, and a special Valentine’s Day petition for craft beer enthusiasts that they have aimed straight at the White House.

A flight of beers, which arrived on a skateboard. That’s how it rolls at Crooked Tooth!

We wrapped up with Gabe Ceniceros of the Blacktop Grill food truck who was on hand to feed the Crooked Tooth crowd. His food went quite well with the beers! We had a blast with our new friends from Tucson’s official crooked community!

 

Gators at the Main Gate

The back alleys of Louisiana were recreated in Main Gate Square this weekend, and the gators were on full parade on our live broadcast from the Louisiana Back Alley BBQ at Red’s Smokehouse & Tap Room!

Chef Travis Peters, Chef Ramiro Scavo, Matt Russell, Rob LaMaster & Scott Miller

Our celebrity co-host was fellow smoked meat enthusiast Rob LaMaster of Make-A-Wish Arizona. In addition to talking about his true passion, Texas BBQ, he also updated us on some cool things happening in his job of granting wishes. Event producer Rob Base sat down with us as well to share some news about his upcoming Lord of the Wings chicken wing challenge. Red’s craft brew curator Scott Miller also joined the party by talking about pairing ‘cue and brew, including his picks for the beers that go great with gator! Our featured guests were Red’s Chef Ramiro Scavo and Chef Travis Peters of The Parish, who partnered on this killer southern-inspired event.

Our kind of alligator…bacon-wrapped and smoked!

We talked gators, gator gumbo, whole pigs, and smoked shrimp, and put a little south in our mouth with a tasting of some Pelican State delicacies. This was serious Louisiana Love!

 

Cruising Down to Creole Country

It’s been said that folks down in the bayou will eat anything that doesn’t bite or snap at them first, and we had plenty of snapping, biting, eating, and drinking on this weekend’s show from Sazerac Creole Kitchen & Cocktails!

Aric Mussman, Tiffany Eldredge, Matt Russell & Laura Reese

Our celebrity co-host was lifestyle publicist Laura Reese, founder and executive producer of the annual Tucson Craft Beer Crawl, who got us current on her plans for this year’s salute to suds in a couple of weeks. We also checked in with Ramiro Scavo of Red’s Smokehouse and Tap Room for details on his upcoming Louisiana Back Alley BBQ that he’s hosting with brother-in-BBQ Travis Peters of the Parish. Sazerac’s mixology maven Tiffany Eldredge sat down with us to talk about the central role that the Sazerac plays in the southern cocktail culture, and co-owner Aric Mussman shared the story behind his hot new creole concept. We were also joined by Robert Iaccarino, Sazerac’s executive chef, whose journey includes stints at some of New Orleans best restaurants.
