Founders

DIRTY BASTARD SCOTCH STYLE ALE

So good it's almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain't for the wee lads.

Great Lakes CLOUD CUTTER ALE

Bursts of juicy citrus zip across friendly, lightly filtered wheat skies in our high-flying tribute to the historic Cleveland Air Races..

 

BELL'S OBERON ALE

Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with our signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. Made with only 4 ingredients, and without the use of any spices or fruit, Oberon is the color and scent of sunny afternoon.

Leinenkugel 
SUMMER SHANDY


Crisp weiss beer with natural lemonade flavor.

Leinenkugel own unique take on Franz Kugler’s original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is our traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer.

In 2012, Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival® in the Fruit Wheat Beer category.

Lagunitas Brown Shugga'

Some of the best things in life are the product of happy accidents. Such is the case with Lagunitas Brown Shugga’. This beloved holiday classic began as a botched batch of Olde GnarlyWine. The addition of brown sugar not only increased the ABV, but also amped up the rich malty sweetness. Toffee, caramel and big piney hops all rolled into one massive brew that's deceptively easy to drink

 

Rhinegeist Brewery

Bubbles

Rosé Ale


A Rosé Ale made with apple, peach and cranberry, for additional pink hue, tartness and juicy fruitiness.

Anderson Valley Brewing CERVEZA CREMA
NITRO

With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, this slightly sweet, malty session ale is conditioned with nitrogen to impart a smooth, creamy texture and the classic “cascading effect” leading to a silky finish. With its unique flavor profile, it has become affectionately known as the “cream soda for adults”.

Stella Artois Cidre

Crisp and refreshing belgian cider made with hand-picked apples

 

Market Garden Prosperity Wheat

Formerly known as Street Wheat! If you’ve ever spent time in a German Beer Garden, you know how much they love their wheat beer. Our Bavarian style Hefeweizen is a satisfying blend of sweet wheat and pale malts, clove and banana aromatics, and the zesty tang of wheat beer yeast.

Working Class Brewery Brick Layer Brown Ale

An ale like this will make
you lay bricks all the live long day

 

Platform Amarillo Fog DBL IPA


This is an outstanding beer that has just a bit of "east coast" yeasty kick, but is not nearly as juicy or biting as many. More like an Unfiltered Enjoy By than a Heady Topper.
It is a very hazy, vibrant burnt orange-gold. It has an egg shell white, massive pillowy head.
It smells fairly malty and musty with an almost pilsner like grain aroma. There is also some fruity esters, pine, and some noticeable yeast.
The flavors really pop compared to the aroma. It has a lot of musty/earhty grapefruit, pineapple, and a touch of peach. Not really sweet at all. There is a bit of a floral hop flavor, followed by a solid bitter pine. It finishes with a little bit of a yeast bite.
The body is definitely on the heavier side, but smooth with no real noticeable alcohol

Royal Docks Pendragon RareWit

According to legend, King Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, was possessed of two magical ales. Pendragon RareWit is our homage to the first of those beers - magically ‘wrought in Avalon' to refresh knights after battle and imbue them with the ‘courage of the Red Dragon'. Rather than hops, Pendragon RareWit relies on a pantheon of herbs and spices - many native to the Welsh Countryside - to provide a refreshing citrusy floral balance to the sweetness of barley malt and unmalted wheat.

Uinta

Hop Nosh IPA

   Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It's balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

North High Brewing Honey Wheat Lager

Light body, orange hues and a smooth finish develop from brewing with a special honey malt and orange blossom honey.

Slightly hazy gold with
Sweet malt aroma, with clove and citrus. Smells remarkably like Blue Moon, but stronger.
Sweet, malty and honeyed arrival, followed by a citrusy tang and mild banana clove esters.
Heavier side of mid weight; little carbonation, slick and smooth. Appropriate for the style
Tastes pretty much like a sweeter, bolder, less carbonated Blue Moon. Surprised this is a lager; would almost think its a Hefeweizen!.

 

Young's Double Chocolate Stout

The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk

chocolate, roasted

grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla

 

Guinness

A classic. Mainly

roasted malt, with a

touch of cream and

milk to it

The paradox of our

time in history is that

we have taller

buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, but

enjoy less.

We have bigger

houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less

sense, more

knowledge, but

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more

medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,

spend too recklessly, laugh too little,drive

too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.

We

have multiplied our possessions, but

reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate

too often. We've

learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years

to life not life to years.

We've been all the

way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.

We've done larger

things, but not better things. We've cleaned

up the air, but polluted

the soul. We've conquered the atom,

We build more

computers to hold

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These

are the days of two incomes but more

divorce, fancier

houses, but broken homes.

These are days of

quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway orality, one night

do everything from

It is a time when there

is much in the

stockroom. A time

when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you

can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit 'delete'.

Remember, spend

some time with your

loved ones, because

they are not going to

be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone, who looks up to you in awe, because that little

person soon will grow

up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one

next to you, because

that is the only

treasure you can give

with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say,

"I love you" to your

partner and your loved ones, but most of all

mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from

deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday

that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the

precious thoughts in

your mind.

Jason Ricci

Winner of "Best Harmonica Player!" Blues Music Awards. Arguably the Best Harmonica Player in Blues Today!

Paul Reddick

 


Melding poetry, mystery, darkness and light, along with an extensive knowledge of the history and traditions of blues music is what makes Paul Reddick one of the most popular figures on the blues and roots music scene today. For over 25 years he's been writing and performing his eclectic brand of blues, bringing the art form to new frontiers with his rapacious, deep vocals, masterful harmonica playing and song writing. As the unofficial poet laureate of Canadian blues, words are his weapon of choice and when he sings, it is near impossible not to listen and get lost within the songs, right alongside him and illustrating what the influential British magazine Mojo described as his “wayward brilliance.”

A devotee of pre-war blues and classic artists such as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson and Howlin' Wolf, Reddick formed his innovative band Paul Reddick & The Sidemen in Toronto in 1990, developing a cult-like following in the clubs and venues on the circuit at the time and spent the better part of a decade touring across Canada. Together they released four albums, two of which were JUNO nominated and in 2002 their ground breaking release Rattlebag won three Maple Blues Awards including Electric Act of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Album of the Year and was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award in the USA.

"From sizzling slide guitar...to nitty-gritty harp blowing...to a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat"

WATERMELON SLIM

An ever-expanding career of ramshackle grandeur WATERMELON SLIM Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans has built a remarkable reputation with his raw, impassioned intensity. HARP Magazine wrote "From sizzling slide guitar...to nitty-gritty harp blowing...to a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat." Paste Magazine writes "He's one hell of a bottleneck guitarist, and he's got that cry in his voice that only the greatest singers in the genre have had before him." The industry agrees on all fronts. Watermelon Slim & The Workers have garnered 17 Blues Music Award nominations in four years including a record-tying six in both 2007 & 2008. Only the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray have landed six in a year and Slim is the only blues artist in history with twelve in two consecutive years. In Spring 2009 he was the cover story of Blues Revue magazine. Now, Watermelon Slim is making more waves with Escape From the Chicken Coop, his first-person account of the days he spent driving a truck. It is just one of many instances of a life spent changing gears. Two of Slim's records were ranked #1 in MOJO Magazine's annual Top Blues CD rankings. Industry awards include The Independent Music Award for Blues Album of the Year, The Blues Critic Award and Canada's Maple Blues Award for International Artist of the Year among others. Slim has hit #1 on the Living Blues Charts, top five on the Roots Music Report and debuted in the top ten in Billboard. One of Slim's most impressive industry accolades may be the liner notes of The Wheel Man eagerly written by the late legendary Jerry Wexler who called him a "one-of-a-kind pickin' n singing Okie dynamo." Slim has been embraced for his music, performances, backstory and persona. He has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered, The BBC's World Service and has been featured in publications like Harp, Relix, Paste, MOJO, Oklahoma Magazine and Truckers News as well as newspapers like The London Times, Toronto Star, Chicago Sun-Times, The Village Voice, Kansas City Star, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Michelle Shocked's JAMS Magazine. The Memphis Flyer led its terrific CD review with the question "Does anyone in modern pop music have a more intriguing biography than Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans?" Slim was born in Boston, his father was a progressive attorney and freedom rider and his brother is a classical musician. He was raised in North Carolina listening to the housekeeper sing John Lee Hooker songs. Slim attended Middlebury on a fencing scholarship but left early to enlist for Vietnam. While laid up in a Vietnam hospital bed he taught himself upside-down left-handed slide guitar on a $5 balsawood model using a triangle pick cut from a rusty coffee can top and his Army issued Zippo lighter as the slide. Slim first appeared on the music scene with the release of the only known protest record by a veteran during the Vietnam War. The project was Merry Airbrakes, a 1973 protest tinged LP with tracks Country Joe McDonald later covered. In the following 30 plus years Slim has been a truck driver, forklift operator, sawmiller (where he lost a partial finger), firewood salesman, collection agent, funeral officiator and at times a small time criminal. Due to aforementioned criminality, Slim was forced to flee Boston where he had played peace rallies, sit-ins and rabbleroused musically with the likes of Bonnie Raitt. Recently Raitt singled out Slim to her audience as a living blues legend during a summer 2009 performance. From Boston Slim landed in his current home state of Oklahoma farming watermelons - hence his stage name. Somewhere in those decades since Vietnam Slim completed two undergrad and a master's degree, started a family, painted art and joined Mensa, the social networking group reserved for members with certified genius IQs. When he's not on tour Slim loves to fish and at the age of 60 bowls a steady 240 in his local league. The big turning point was 2002 when Slim suffered a near fatal heart attack. His brush with death gave him a new perspective on mortality, direction and life ambitions and thus his second emergence as a performing musician. Five albums later he says, "Everything I do now has a sharper pleasure to it. I've lived a fuller life than most people could in two. If I go now, I've got a good education, I've lived on three continents, and I've played music with a bunch of immortal blues players. I've fought in a war and against a war. I've seen an awful lot and I've done an awful lot. If my plane went down tomorrow, I'd go out on top." And when you watch him perform, you know every word is true. Throughout his storied past, it has always been truck driving that Slim returned to. While trucking and hauling industrial waste for thankless bosses at hourly wages to support himself and his family, his id yearned for release of the musician inside. In fact, many of Slim's current songs began a cappella in his rig keeping him awake and entertained.

Real Blues, Jazz, Roots from Memphis, TN

BRANDON SANTINI

There are many different opinions as to what the future of the blues harmonica will be. Memphis vocalist and harmonica player Brandon Santini is undeniably a worthy player to keep an eye on as the latest surge of young blues artists leave their footprint in blues history. His name is worthy of conversations that include James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Dennis Gruenling, Charlie Musselwhite and other frontline harmonica players by combining his love and respect for traditional blues with a present, colorful style of playing that is often compared to James Cotton or Paul Butterfield. Raised in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, Brandon purchased his first harmonica in 1997 at the age of fifteen when his mother took him to the local music store upon his request. He founded the Blues Music Award nominated band Delta Highway in 2003 and relocated to Memphis where he absorbed the sounds and culture of the Delta and North Mississippi Hill Country, honing his craft night after night, sweating it out in local Beale Street clubs just like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and B.B. King did decades before him.
Live & Extended! is Brandon’s third album released in January 2015 by VizzTone Label Group. The scene is Quebec’s upscale concert venue, le Petit Impérial, on a Sunday night in July, in the middle of the exuberant Festival D’été de Quebec. The packed house responds quickly as Brandon Santini and his tight touring band hit the stage with all the raw blues power and impact of the 1970s-era Paul Butterfield or James Cotton Blues Band. The band feels the energy and responds with over an hour of the hard-hitting harmonica-driven blues that’s been causing fans and critics alike to tap Santini as one of the most quickly-rising blues stars of his generation.
For Brandon Santini, “It’s all about the vibe of your surroundings. With a great live audience fueling you it’s a lot more inspiring and allows you to give more to the audience.” He has steadily built his fan base with two previous albums, and tours regularly. His A-Team road band includes Timo Arthur on guitar and backing vocals, Nick Hern on bass and backing vocals, and Chad Wirl on drums

Bad Ass Bluegrass Band from Winchester , VA

The Robert Mabe Band

Robert Mabe is a stellar banjo player, singer/songwriter, from the hills of North Carolina. As a young banjo player in North Carolina, Robert had the opportunity to learn from and perform with many great bluegrass and old time banjo players as the area was and still is a hot-bed of musicians. His unique style covers a wide range of music from straight ahead buegrass to jazz, irish, and roots music. In 2016 Robert released his latest album, "Somewhere in the Middle". The album, written and produced by Robert, showcases Roberts versitile songwriting skills and includes an all star cast of musicians. "Somewhere in the Middle" also caught the attention of Bluegrass Today and Bluegrass Unlimited who both published rave reviews and high praise of the project.
Robert has been touring steadily for several years both in the US and abroad. He has recorded and shared the stage with some of the greats in bluegrass music. In addition to playing dozens of festivals each year, Robert has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Canadian Embassy, IBMA 2016, and private events for Secretary Madeline Albright.

Roderick August

Roderick grew up playing piano, self taught by learning whatever MTV was playing in the early 2000's. With no musicians in his family and no formal training, he took an “anything goes” approach to art. He discovered his voice by chance after being coerced into singing Ray Charles at a Filipino karaoke party. By high school, he adopted the guitar and songwriting above a GPA while spending time in various indie bands around Ventura County. Shortly after high school he was discovered by a small Nashville publishing company and was soon off to Tennessee to live the air conditioned and often, isolated life of a songwriter. All there was to do in Nashville for him was write, record, write, record and he began to wonder when things would shift back to a stage, an audience, an experience involving more people than himself. He began traveling back to his home state of California more often, initially as a release but all the back and forth began to have a strong pull on his sound. The carefree, let it flow sound he originally harnessed while in California was now being married to the roots and bluesy aura that grew on him in Tennessee. From Elton John to Dylan, Ryan Adams to Alabama Shakes, and in the spirit of honest songwriting everywhere, Roderick August is about something real. The underlying emotion of whats happening on stage is this, “boom!”.

bluegrass ambassadors from Chicago

THE HENHOUSE PROWLERS


Award winning, hard-driving, Chicago bluegrass. Internationally touring 365 days a year.

IN THE 13 YEARS SINCE THE HENHOUSE PROWLERS' INCEPTION, THE BAND HAS FORGED ITS OWN PATH THROUGH MUSIC AND ACROSS THE GLOBE.

On stage , the group's enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how much they love what they do; while on record , the band manages to explore their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band manages to bend and squeeze the traditional form into a sound all their own.

With over 175 shows a year, the quartet has managed to tour more than 25 countries, often going to places traditional American music has never been.

Tours in Siberia or the Middle East are not uncommon since the Prowlers started working as cultural ambassadors with the US State Department in 2013. These global experiences have pushed the band in new directions musically, with songs from Africa and Asia on several albums, but they have also moved the group to start an educational outreach program for both school children and festival-goers alike.

Jon's ever calm and driven demeanor shows both his love and his commitment to the band since its inception in 2004. Before he was bit by the bluegrass bug, Jon played rock and world music.

Ben is a founding member of the Prowlers, having started his bluegrass journey in Chicago after seeing a banjo in the window of the Old Town School of Folk Music in mid-October of 1999. That $200 impulse buy turned itself slowly into a career spanning thousands of notes, friends and miles. When not playing the banjo, Ben not-so-quietly obsesses over shipwrecks and Nintendo.

Kyle splits his time in the band between mandolin and fiddle and he absolutely slays on both equally. He's a man more comfortable in motion, always looking towards the next show and adventures. His deep baritone compliments the high lonesome qualities of both of his chosen instruments. Outside of shows, Kyle likes to play volleyball and eat "Chips + Cheese".

Chris Dollar comes out of the heart of Bill Monroe country (Central Indiana) and it shows immediately on stage through his hearty guitar picking and rediculous vocal chops. He cut his teeth with the excellent New Old Cavalry and Flatland Harmony Experiment and has turned immediately into an asset for the Prowlers. In his spare time, Chris works on both cars and guitars alike.

The Prowlers nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors , uses traditional American music as an educational foundation to talk about folk music and cultures all over the world.

The Henhouse Prowlers released two albums in 2017, including "Live from Kyrgyzstan" in March and the brand new studio album "Separation Man" in November.

2018 holds two European tours for the band and even more untold adventures as the Prowlers continue to bring their own blend of bluegrass and world music to hearts unknown.
