Lance Whalen, the Baroness, and French Broad Beers

He describes his music as “Americana Noir” and he’s got the sound to back it up – Nashville’s own Lance Whalen joins Chas E. and Mike Mitchell on this week’s episode of At The Hops.  Lance talks about everything from his recent tour and latest cd “Sweet Sugar Pie” to his days working at a graveyard and his exotic frog selection.  And he has been kind enough to play a few live songs for us with his new musical partner, the Baroness.  Together they form the group “the Blue Velvets.”

Wait, there’s more!  There’s beer, and our beer for this week comes from a brewery that Lance played at during his recent tour – the French Broad Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina.  We check out three of their great offerings, including the Gateway Kolsch, the 13 Rebels ESB, and Ryehopper Rye Pale Ale.

We also have a round of “Name That Hopper” with your chance to win an “At The Hops” t-shirt!  You know you want one, so check it out and submit your answer.
