Grab a beer and enjoy another jam-packed episode of Beer Sessions Radio! This week - Jimmy and the crew are checking in on the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp! This summer, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is inviting every craft brewery in the country (count ‘em: more than 2,700) along for Beer Camp Across America, the largest collaboration the craft brewing world has ever seen. Beer Camp Across America is a multi-weekend path of beer festivals, a rolling tour that will cover 4,800 miles, celebrating the collaborative spirit of the craft brewing community with the fans that have buoyed its success. There’ll be seven stops—in cities with thriving craft beer cultures—moving geographically west to east, much like the craft movement has historically spread. Tune in and hear from some of the brewers involved as Jimmy tastes through the collection on-air! This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"The market for [these collaborative beers] is anybody who's adventurous as the brewers themselves - people looking for something off the beaten path." [12:00]

This week on Eating Disorder Spyro and guest co-host St. John Frizell of Fort Defiance in Red Hook take on the age old topic of the bartender. The role is one that can be mentally and physically taxing, and is often responsible for making or breaking a night out. The guys bring on two pro New York bartenders, Olufemi Akiwumi-Assani and Kevin Ang, to talk about the job behind the scenes and why they take their craft so seriously. Join the crew as they navigate the science of a great drink, hilarious (puke) stories, and an in-depth description of the worst customers. This program was sponsored by Roberta's.

"With crafting cocktails, there's very few parts that go into it that make a simple cocktail, a classic cocktail very, very good. But with these things, they all have to be regimented, they all have to be treated seriously so you have consistency and results. Jiggers are important." [8:19]

-- Kevin Ang on Eating Disorder

"As bartenders, we're reverse babysitters. We watch them come in as normal people and then we turn them into children as they go home." [29:07]
