Dustin Davidson (August Burns Red)

Episode Summary

A conversation about the soundtrack of his youth, his first live music experience, his brewery Edgemont Brew Works, how he started brewing, August Burns Red brews, how he has handled COVID- 19, a tour he would like to relive & his hangover cure. Throughout this episode Dustin was drinking The Veil Brewing Co & Jester King's collab "Petalz Fred" a mixed Framhouse ale brewed with raw wheat, Virginia corn grits, spelt, and aged whole leaf hops. This version of Petalz was fermented and aged in Danish cherry wine barrels lending incredible impressions of cherry pie, white pepper, and orange blossom. & Matt was drinking Henderson Brewing Company's "Devastation" the Black Lager it is Dark German Lager with a balance of roasted and smooth malt flavours, medium body, dryness and light hop bitterness makes for dangerously quaffable beer. Devastation On The Nation 2020 featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant has been postponed due to the effects of the COVID- 19 Virus. But Daniel DeFonce, the Vox&Hops Alumni behind Metal Festival Tours & Continental Touring has already managed to secure tour dates for Devastation on the Nation 2021 featuring the exact same lineup. Devastation on the Nation 2021 with run from February 11th - March 14th 2021. Mad love & respect to Daniel DeFonce for pulling this together so quickly...I am impressed! All of the upcoming Vox&Hops Craft Beer Parties & Events are for the time being either cancelled or postponed. COVID- 19 must be taken seriously & social distancing is the best step towards curving its disastrous effects. We shall all emerge from this stronger, smarter & unified. The impact of the COVID- 19 Virus on the entertainment industry is monstrous. Some of your favourite artists may be struggling to get by right now & desperately need your help. The best way to do that is by buying their music, merchandise & other goods. I have created a list of all of the Vox&Hops Almuni's Merchandise Pages for you to peruse so that you can support your favourite artists. Trust me they need it... It is also essential to support our local Craft Beer Breweries now. If you are going to be drinking craft beer during your time in Social Isolation make sure that it is a Local Craft Beer. It would be a shame if we lost some breweries to COVID- 19...Craft Beer or nothing!
