Ep 60: Watermelon Funk by 21st Amendment Brewery | W/ Guest Steve Hofstetter
6 days ago
Hey all! This week Ryan and Alex try the interesting Watermelon Funk by 21st Amendment Brewery. In 2000, Nico Frexxia and Shaun O’Sullivan founded the 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood. They met in 1995, having moved to the Bay Area from Southern California, and gave up their careers to enter the booming brewery scene. At a brewing course at UC Davis, the two became friends, and 21st Amendment Brewery was born. (Yay!) Having features that are very “un-sour” like, Watermelon Funk sour ale feels very light. The watermelon flavor is very subtle while the tartness of the brew is much more noticeable. There is also a notable wheat flavor to the beer.
We’ll also be calling comedian and author, Steve Hofstetter. Known primarily for his comebacks and masterful way he handles hecklers, Steve just released his first book, Ginger Kid, a memoir about his time in adolescence and the lessons he learned outside the classroom.
This week on FDB - we debate why a certain Dunkin Donuts branch should hire a pig as their manager, the need for Tom Hanks as a best friend, what it might be like to have a third nostril, and more!
Now please kick back, and enjoy another sit down with Friends Drink Beer.
