Episode 25 – Craving Some Lords Proprietors in Craven County

A New Bern Bear in Morgan’s Tavern

Matt and Chris toast Craven County with a Devil’s Tramping Ground Trippel from Aviator Brewing.  Craven County has it all: IBX! The Lords Proprietors! Regulators! Palaces! Pepsi! Horse heads! Bears! Yet again Chris goes into a long and drawn out history lesson.  Matt expresses his distaste for rivers with wide mouths.  Chris ponders the storage practices of the New Bern Fireman’s Museum.

Chris couldn’t find a beer from Craven County, or from Neuse River Brewing Company, so they enjoyed a beer from Wake County’s Aviator Brewing Company.

Unfortunately Chris couldn’t share a beer this time with Craven County native Brian, who talks with Matt and Chris about his home county, and his preference for a non-native soda.
