It All Started with the Prog Rock & Biker Shows with Félix B. Desfossés & Ian Campbell
Félix B. Desfossés & Ian Campbell the creators of No Speed Limit: Québec Metal & I have a conversation about their 1st brews, their 1st shows, the evolution of the Québec Metal Scene, why they chose to write a book, the biggest challenges, translating it to English & their hangover cure.
Throughout this interview, Félix was drinking Hopfenstark Brewery x Voivod 's "Lost Machine"! This SteinBier which is a traditional German style brew which is made by heating up rocks in a fire that are later placed in the wort was fantastic! Thanks to that unique process it has a more caramel & mineral flavor profile while remaining a crisp & crushable brew! It clocks in with a 5% ABV. Ian was drinking absolutely nothing because that is how Metal he is!!! While I was enjoying Le Trèfle Noir Brasserie Artisanale 's "Chernoe Pivo" the Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels. This phenomenal brew poured out with a thick black veil, smashed a booze driven nose, ripped a slightly sweet, chocolatey & coffee finish with a bourbon bite. It clocked in with a 8.7% ABV.
This is a Heavy Montreal presents Vox&Hops episode! Heavy Montreal is Montreal's premier metal promoter. They host one of North America's best Metal Festivals & present countless amazing events during the rest of the year. I am truly honored & extremely excited to have them involved in the podcast.
