In Ep. 21 of The Hump! Podcast, Brent & Chad Talk With Alana Gwinner About KC Craft Beer Scene …

But before they discuss Kansas City Craft Beer ad nauseam, Brent and Chad  …

Chad loves Boulevard Brewing Co.’s Space Camper, but the helmet presents a challenge!
  • Royals opening day and the official start to Spring is finally here! 💐
  • What we’re up to …
    • Though they didn’t wear their matching membership T-shirts, the group compares notes on City Barrel Brewing! Chad stakes a claim as the first brewery patron to enjoy having the garage doors open for nice weather
    • With family flocking into town, Brent and Becca canceled their Spring Break plans. Instead they held a short staycation. Their AirBnB was on point. Sadly no visit to 3 Sons Brewing Co. for Chad. Though Chad did nice beer conversation about beer with his Uber driver and his Almond Joy home brew.
    • The whole crew couldn’t make Planet Comicon either! Got highlights from the event? We’d love to hear them.
    • Throwing a recreation basketball tournament so producer and Brent could see the movie US.
    • It’s the final weekend of Kansas City Young Audiences‘ exhibit TA-DA! Art Benefit at the Buttonwood Art Space. Helping KCYA bring Destination Imagination to KC, the largest conference in the city since 2008. Doling out tickets to Tony Award Winning Star of Hamilton Renee Elise Goldsberry September event with the Kansas City Symphony.

This Week’s Topic — Kansas City’s Craft Beer Scene

Alana Gwinner is proprietor of Eleven Three KC where she currently writes reviews, journals and keeps our community up to date on the local craft beer scene.  If you’re a craft beer fan living in KC, she is a MUST follow on Instagram.


Check Out Kansas City Beer Festivals

We hit KC Brew Fest last month … What 2019 Beer Festivals will you be attending this year?

Some highlights from Alana’s list:

How Eleven Three KC — Alana Gwinner — Rules Craft Beer

Brent and Chad quiz Alana on all things about the Kansas City craft beer scene:

  • They discuss with Alana how, during the federal government shutdown, she worked with Crane Brewing and other brewery and community partners to help furloughed federal employees by collecting donations of essential items. The crew salutes beer as the great collaborator, the Kansas City beer community, and Alana as a connector for doing good.
  • What beer or event convinced Alana to say… “I want to dedicate time/effort to this delightful beverage?”
  • Beer preferences and the seasonality of beer.
  • How Alana has been working with Flying Saucer to coordinate meetups for female beer enthusiasts or those wanting to learn more about beer (even some mythology): Women’s Night Out. They’ll be brewing a beer soon with Callsign Brewing Company. Perhaps named WASP — a waffle inspired beer? The fellas call for chicken and waffles! Chad gives a shout out to Servaes Brewing Company — awesome beer by female-run brewery.
  • How Brent and Chad waited outside Waldo Pizza for it to open so they could get some Founders KBS.
  • What excites Alana about the 2019 KC craft beer scene?
  • Alana’s call online to KC female beer and cocktail creators for her next beer calendar. She tells our listeners about the first project and what to expect with the 2020 version.
  • Alana’s opinion on “Heavy Beer Here” in Kansas starting in April. And a plug for Mike’s beer delivery! (Missouri side only, people. Chad is ready to move downtown so he can limit himself to ” I drink and know things.”)

And This Episode’s Game of “Triple D” …

To close out The Hump! Podcast … Brent and Chad play a quick round of Triple D.

What’s Triple D?

They throw out a scenario … and discuss whether it’s a DICK, DOUCHE or DUMBASS move …

This week’s Triple D move — What do you call someone who likes to stroll into the beer hall or tasting room and name drop the brewery owner?

We discuss and debate on the show, but feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments (keep it clean folks, as they reserve the right to delete any personal attacks or defamatory information).

You Can Catch The Hump! Live

You can watch Brent and Chad LIVE 7 p.m. CST most Wednesdays on Facebook  (and sometimes Instagram — when it works).

They’ll publish the replays on Facebook and places where good audio can be found (see below platforms — and not saying they’re good, but they’ll slum along greatness).
