S2 E2 – An Elaborate Revenge Plot: the drummer auditions continue

The drummer auditions continue!

We go back into the crucible as the auditions continue in our search for the perfect fit.

S2 E1 – A Drummer Shaped Hole

After an emotional farewell to best friend and drummer Colin, Mike and Conor need to pull themselves together and find someone else who can fill the drummer shaped hole.

Auditions commence using the tried and tested “2 Songs 2 Beers” technique.

S1 E19: 2 Songs 2 Beers LIVE GIG! (at the time)

A gig, a game or two and a goodbye…

As a special send off for Colin, the band decided to throw one last party and invite some friends along to what would be their first and last gig in this guise (for now).

We’ve got a live beer tasting with the audience, games, our two songs that we wrote, we even play all the jingles live.

Episode 18: Big news, little episode

The guys have some ground-shaking news about the future of the band

In this short episode, we talk future plans and some annoucements are made.

We realise thats vague but its a short episode and giving you any more than that would ruin it.

Episode 17: Session Singing and Beer Tasting with Jaega Wise

Jaega Wise, head brewer of Wild Card brewery and TV presenter joined us for a jam and a hilarious and insightful chat about beer.

Most people will know of Jaega Wise as Head brewer of Wildcard, as a regional director of SIBA or by the growing list of gender equality projects and initiative’s she is involved in.

A perhaps lesser known fact is she has one hell of singing voice and is in a band!

Episode 16: Home Brewer to Pro Brewer – Seven Sister Brewery

The band chat to Chris and Tristan from Seven Sisters Brewery about how they went from brewing in a bucket under a pub to trying to keep up with demand.

Ever thought about starting your own brewery? listening to the Seven Sisters Brewery guys tell their story is a very good place to start.

They take us through their core range, how they started out and try out some beers with us.

Episode 15: who are you, Archimedes?

It’s song writing business as usual at 2 Songs 2 Beers Towers

Beer talk, song writing talk (including a new song which Mike has brought to the band), and Spotify recommendations fill this episode to the frothy brim.

This episode also features the second only time the hallowed 5 frothy picks were awarded to an exceptional beer!

Episode 14: Highway to Hellyer

The 2 songs 2 beers posse hit the road

We head to Sussex for a retrospective roadtrip to meet the man that inspired this podcast, Mike’s Dad, Tony Hellyer. So that’s why we called this episode: Highway to Hellyer! We load up the van with our gear and some recording equipment and head down to have a day of jamming and recording at Mike’s parent’s place.

Episode 13: Music and Beer Chat with Signature Brew’s Tom Bott

They like beer and music, we like music and beer. Its no wonder we got on like a house on fire with Signature Brew Director, Tom Bott.

In this awesome episode we got to meet and chat with Signature brew Director, Siba board of trustees member and all round very nice guy and best friend of the podcast (he hasn’t agreed to that yet), Tom Bott.  

Episode 12: Song writing with Grapefruit Fran

The band get back together after the Christmas break to talk about Scottish beers.

In this episode the guys talk through the song writing process for their first ever song, titled “Half the Devil”.
