(NSFW) When the good people up at Dark Sky Brewing asked if we wanted to come up to Flagstaff and chat we said yes. It helped that the date we settled on was their 3rd Anniversary Party. We sat down with Ryan Sandlin Co-Owner, Brewer, and all around pretty cool guy. We talk about how a night of backyard drinking with friends turned into this beer making machine that is Dark Sky Brewing. The growing pains that they saw early on, and what the future plans are for the brewery. We marvel at the sheer number of beers they have made in the last three years, what was good, and what was not so good with some of them. We talk the amount of collaborations they have done, their latest can and bottle releases, and what everyone will be missing at the festivities that night. Along the way Ryan treats us to samples of each of the new releases, and some beers that are no longer in production. If you get a chance to check out Dark Sky Brewing in Flagstaff Arizona the first international dark sky city, we highly recommend it.

The assorted sounds of three ageing humans hitting things in a studio for five days. Beautifully nasty and pretty vile at times but ultimately gorgeous. Enjoy!
