Fear Of A Craft Beer Planet

Fear Of A Craft Beer Planet is a craft beer podcast hosted by lifelong friends Jay Rose, James “Richard” Rabic, and Rob Forczek. Jay Rose and Rob have been in the NJ beer business for 20 years and Richard spent a good amount of time in the NJ radio world. The three of them have not only shared friendship but also the stage as they were collectively involved in the slow-growing Jam Band scene in the Philly/NJ area in the 90’s. The podcast works because Richard is a beer novice while Jay Rose and Rob have seen the craft beer business grow up and become what it is today. They treat the show the same way they would treat improvising on stage as musicians; not much planning and minimal actual “show prep.” It’s a conversation about beer, the business of beer, and the parallels between the beer business and the music business. Beers are consumed and discussed, stories are told, and chaos generally ensues by the end of every episode. Get into it. Get involved.

    #79 Live at Monk's Cafe in Philly with Felicia D'Ambrosio and Tom Peters

    Just in time for Philly Beer Week, we sit down with Felicia D'Ambrosio and Tom Peters from the LEGENDARY Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia. In the first half we discuss all things Federal Donuts and Phish with Felicia. We get to the bottom of how she's involved with Federal Donuts and how they became the official donut of Phish's Bakers Dozen at Madison Square Garden last Summer. Oh, and Felicia ALSO works at Monk's! Tom Peters, the owner of Monks joins the conversation for the second half . Felicia and Tom drop SERIOUS beer science and help us remember why we love what we do in the beer business. Tom tells us us the Monks story first hand and gives us a rare look behind the curtain at one of the most important beer bars on EARTH! We are still vibrating from this episode and can't thank Tom and Felicia enough. Grab an Orval, pour it in a glass, and thank Tom Peters while you're listening to this episode!

    #74 Live From Jupiter Records For Record Store Day

    This is segment 1 of 2 from what has now become a bit of a tradition for us. This is our 3rd Record Store Day Podcast, and the second year in a row we've done it from Jupiter Records in Woodbury Heights NJ. Record Store Day falls right at the end of the Hippie High Holidaze of Bicycle Day, 4/20, the anniversary of Prince's death and Earth Day. Seeing as how Dogfish Head is the official beer of Record Store Day, we had Ryan Horner from Dogfish sit in with some beautiful liquid. The theme of this one was "Opening The Vaults." We all brought beers from the deep dark recesses of our collections and opened them on the show. Most of the beers that were opened were older than our children. Rob opens a VERY sour Stone Enjoy After, Jay Rose breaks down how to drink a sour beer, Steve Zimmerman from Jupiter shares some of the more ridiculous things he finds in record collections, and Richard enjoys an 11 year old 120 IPA. Chuck Garrity from Death Of A Fox Brewing in Clarksboro NJ hangs for a bit to explain how his brewery is a coffee house and his coffee house is a brewery. Very cool stuff. Open a beer from your vault and enjoy the ride!
