On September 20th, a landmark event in the modern craft beer and culinary arts will take place. Three masters of their craft will set aside their rivalries and take their talents to an undisclosed location (I’ll disclose in a few paragraphs) to create an awe inspiring liquid that is profoundly greater than the sum of its parts. Historians will someday hold this event in the company of the other great collaborative masterpieces that define human civilization: The Big Three’s move to Miami, The Band’s Last Waltz, or the unforgettable adventure of Walter, Donny, and The Dude avenging the unjust soiling of The Dude’s rug (it really tied the room together, did it not?).
The Philadelphia Tough Mudder is coming to town and it just so happens that the course is in our backyard this year (Coatesville). So we teamed up with Victory Brewing to sponsor a Tough Mudder team and also throw an epic after-party at their brand new brewery in Parkesburg after the race on Saturday, May 21st.
We had the good fortune of an "inside man" at the Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room that was able to arrange a Jerky and Beer pairing to kick off their San Francisco Beer Week festivities. Naturally, we all hopped in a discount airliner and headed out to the Golden State, just in time to dodge the 18 inches that Ol' Man Winter dumped on Philadelphia while we were gone. Timing is everything in the jerky biz...
Last Fall Team RF headed to Moab, Utah to get a foothold on three awe-inspiring parks: National Parks Arches and Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Park. The vistas were mighty. The skies were big and breathtaking. The sets of rock formations like arcades of geologic majesty. Needless to say, we brought some jerky.
We're happy to announce that we've partnered with Philabundance to help the less fortunate and hungry of Philadelphia get a taste of Righteousness this Holiday Season. For every bag of jerky sold on our website from Thanksgiving Day to Christmas Day, we'll be donating a bag to Philabundance, who will make sure that this jerky makes it to a hungry individuals and families in the Great Philadelphia Area.
Figured we’d throw a little #tbt atcha today. This takes us back to around the year 2002, runnin' around Southeastern PA in a 1981 Chevy pickup, windows down, not a care in the world. This one’s sweeter than a plate of yams with extra syrup. Throw in those buds and turn this one wayyy up! ~ Niles B.
To pull off one “1620” (full 360 degree rotation, 4 times, and than one half rotation) is an incredible feat all by itself. In fact, I think this trick is so far fetched, that it wasn't even possible in N64's Tony Hawk Pro Skater 15 year's ago - a game in which EVERYTHING was possible. However, here we are, 15 years later and this Japanese dude, Yuki Kadono, decided to do it twice, back to back, and it’s absolutely nuts.
I know we recently posted a song by these guys, but this is just too good. This song makes me want to take my desk and throw it out the effing window! I mean that in the most positive way. If this is any inclination of how their new album "Sound & Color" is going to be, then I think we’re all in for something real special. Enjoy! ~Niles B.
Figured we would try a little something new and add some funk to the mix. Behold the inaugural funk Friday Jam’o’the’Day. You deserve it for making it through another grind, because that's all it is. This song will make the hair on your ass stand up. Get out there and make something of yourself tonight! ~ Niles B.
First heard these guys driving to work on a Monday. I was contemplating either to push forward, or take my car and drive it into the next snow embankment. The weekend had won again. But for a few minutes, it made me sit back and realize that maybe life isn’t so bad! These guys are as felon as they come. And for a couple of kids from Lititz, PA, they absolutely bring it. Enjoy! ~ Niles B.
