Stunt dogs, hollywood life, trick dogs, mental health and anti-bullying, and bourbon secrets.

Join us on this fun conversation!


Chrissy is Drinking:
Blanton's Bourbon

Sarah is Drinking:
Xocoveza, Stone Brewing
This is a beloved stout. When first introduced as a limited special collaboration release with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker (after his recipe won our annual homebrew competition) and Cerveceria Insurgente, it was an instant hit and fans began clamoring for its return. Seeing as how its amazing flavor profile is evocative of Mexican hot chocolate, featuring coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and a generous amount of our own in-house made chocolate, we concluded it was the perfect stout to re-release in celebration of the Holidays and the entire winter season. This is now a highly anticipated yearly tradition that we are pleased to present from us to you, and makes a perfect wintry gift from you to your friends, loved ones, or simply to yourself. Cheers!

Rebecca is Drinking:
Barrel Aged Lugene, Odell Brewing
Farmers are patient and understand it takes time for some things to mature. We followed their lead with our Whiskey Barrel Aged Lugene, named after our favorite farmer who has been hauling our spent grain to his dairy cows for years. We took a batch of our Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout, moved it into some Woody Creek Rye Whiskey barrels for six months. The result is a beer that is dynamic and complex, with aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate and toffee, and a smooth but full-bodied mouthfeel with subtle flavors of rye spice and vanilla.

sales strategies, working through self doubt, and entrepreneur apps.

Let's talk the nitty gritty, scheduling your day right, limiting the phone calls and all the crap people don't talk about in their real experiences of being to people's dog people person... 


Nicole is Drinking:
Riptide Rye, Britannia Brewing Company
Brewed in the North East style with British yeast, Amarillo hops and flaked rye. Apricots and nectarine meet citrus/mandarin orange with undertones of melon, creating juicy flavours with soft spicy tones of Rye. Follow the tide and enjoy the flavor and aromas of this fresh IPA. Editor’s note: also 6% ABV and 58 IBU

Sarah is Drinking:
Wild Raspy, Sixpoint Brewery
Wild yeasts worked on this version of Lil Raspy for over a year in wine barrels.

Rebecca Hoffman:
Glow Cloud, Gigantic Brewery
Just like one cloudy day leads to the next, our hazy IPA has changed again – tweaked to feature mosaic hops with a lighter malt character. Still super juicy, super soft and fluffy, this IPA is loaded with mosaic, simcoe and crystal hops creating citrusy, tropical and dank deliciousness. Tasting notes: Grapefruit, Loquat, Orange, White mulberry. 7% ABV, 65 IBU’s. 
HopSwapper, Zaftig Brewery

Lets talk about Halloween and our dogs! Training strategies, scary perspectives, and personal experiences. 

Sarah is Drinking: 
300, Fulton Beer
Originally brewed as a one-off in celebration of the 300th batch at our original downtown Minneapolis brewery, this West Coast IPA was so well received we had to make it available year-round. It's built on a base of Pilsner malt and heavily hopped with Mosaic, one of our favorite -- and unfortunately nearly impossible to procure -- hop varieties. At 74 IBU and 7% ABV, 300 is pure hop candy.

Rebecca is Drinking:
Lilith's Brethren, Anchorage Brewing
LILITH’S BRETHREN DOUBLE IPA!!!! This is a silky smooth DIPA brewed with all AMARILLO HOPS!!! THEN DOUBLE DRY-HOPPED WITH MOSAIC!!!! This AMAZING art was done by WOLF SKULL JACK in England.

Mango IPA, BarrelHouse

We crafted this brew with the hop goodness of an IPA and infused it with mouth-watering mangos. Tropical and citrus notes from our special blend of Simcoe and Citra hops shine through its unassuming malt character.

Sarah is Drinking:
Old Rasputin, North Coast Brewing
Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.

The Old Rasputin brand image is a drawing of Rasputin with a phrase in Russian encircling it — A sincere friend is not born instantly.

We talk about plateauing in dog training and combating boredom in the industry. WHERE IS YOUR CREAVITY?

Sarah is Drinking:
Mercury Rising, Foreign Objects Brewing
Thrice greatest! Living intellect made quicksilver! We receive, express, and transmute in an instant, and our minds left vibrating sacred energy- The air is out language, and we engage with clear, perfected abstraction. To communicate this crystalline abstract of perfection, we have chosen the aromatic communion of Citra and Motueka hops, creating rapid and intense expressions of sweet lime, earthy passionfruit, grapefruit pith, and resinous stone fruit characteristics. Rapid and expansive, Hermes is the air rising up your spine, and you will understand when the impossible perfection comes to you like voiceless inspiration of the infinite abstract!

Rebecca is Drinking:
Strawberry Provence, Beachwood Blendery
Blend of our Lambic-Inspired base on strawberries with Prop Series 2.6e5 (Barrel-aged Brett saison with Herbes de Provence).
