RED Episode #68: Training through Injury & Flashback to Below the Radar in Huntsville

RUN

In this episode, we talk about training challenges and how to overcome them.  Then we ask for your feedback and how you overcome training challenges because in this training week, Dana is coming back from injury and starting back to training slowly.  At the same time, Aimee had a long run distance of 14 miles in the heat and humidity of the Florida summer, which presents its own challenges that we all encounter and need to overcome at some point in a training cycle.

EAT

My cameraman had a work trip to Huntsville a couple of weeks ago.  We spent some time around some amazing exhibits at the US Space and Rocket Center.  We stayed near the Von Braun Center and Big Spring International Park, which was a great park to run in right outside our hotel.

Huntsville has their own Craft Beer Trail that incorporates the fantastic breweries and tap houses we had the opportunity to visit.

We flash back to our visit to Below the Radar Brewhouse, where we had some tasty brews and some out of this world Fish and Chips for lunch when we visited the Brewhouse. I actually thought the fish and chips were the stars of our visit.  Flaky white fish perfectly cooked and battered in beer batter that was crunchy, a little salty, and perfect with a hit of malt vinegar.  It is on the heavier side as an entree, so we would recommend it as a dinner item or to split it if you are having it for lunch, but it is delicious no matter what the time of day.

DRINK

We had a flight of six original beers while we had the meal and actually saw the brewing process in action while we ate.

The beers I had were:

  • Imperial Brown (Brown Ale) 8% ABV

  • Baltic Porter By Robo, Andrew, Alex, and Clint 7.6% ABV

  • Mild Thang (English Mild Ale) 3.5% ABV

  • Strange Wilderness (American Imperial Stout) 9.2% ABV

  • Voodoo Mary Belgian Dubbel 8% ABV

  • Mossy Oats Stout (Oatmeal Stout) 7% ABV

RED Quick Bite #76: Inner Space Brewing Company in Huntsville

QUICK BITE: INNER SPACE BREWING COMPANY

My cameraman had a work trip to Huntsville a couple of weeks ago.  We spent some time around some amazing exhibits at the US Space and Rocket Center.  We stayed near the Von Braun Center and Big Spring International Park, which was a great park to run in right outside our hotel.

Huntsville has their own Craft Beer Trail that incorporates the fantastic breweries and tap houses we had the opportunity to visit.  So many that we could not cover them all on the episodes.

In this Quick Bite, we flash back to our visit at Inner Space Brewing Company.  Owners Daniel and Nicole Wallace were there and so great to talk to about their original brews!  They are so knowledgeable and can recommend just the right beer for you.

We did not have to get a flight because we could just order a 5-ounce pour of whatever they had on tap.  They even had a beer slushie we could try!

We tried these original brews:

Leila Lager 5.5%

STS Rye Saison 5.5%

Key Lime Gose 5.5%

Andromeda Stout 7%

One of my favorites was the Key Lime Gose!  They were all flavorful and worth the trip!

We are so glad we went and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area!

RED Quick Bite #75: Green Bus Brewing in Huntsville

QUICK BITE: GREEN BUS BREWING

My cameraman had a work trip to Huntsville a couple of weeks ago.  We spent some time around some amazing exhibits at the US Space and Rocket Center.  We stayed near the Von Braun Center and Big Spring International Park, which was a great park to run in right outside our hotel.

Huntsville has their own Craft Beer Trail that incorporates the fantastic breweries and tap houses we had the opportunity to visit.  So many that we could not cover them all on the episodes.

In this Quick Bite, we recap Green Bus Brewing.  We did a live broadcast from there.  We had flights of their tasty original beers, but did you know that they also make meads, ciders, and their own beer cheese with two of their own brews?

We tried these in flights:

  • Tiramisu Milk Stout

  • Twickenham London Porter

  • Dominant Red

  • Camper Van Blonde

  • Downtown Julie Brown

Their beer cheese is made with their Big Spring IPA and Camper Van Blonde.  It was sharp, cheesy, and tangy from the beer. A must when visiting!

Their meads,  Spiced Orange at 16% and Earl Grey at 14%, pack a PUNCH! But they are tasty, too!

Their tap room is so cool too.  Such nice and knowledgeable people are behind the bar.  Wood floors on two different levels, the brewing setup is upstairs and it is also extra seating or what could be a great place to have meetings.  They have the front of a VW Bus over their bar on the first floor and walls that incorporate some beautiful brick.

We are so glad we went and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area!
