The wait is over! We finally have college football back this weekend. We will get in to our full season preview next week, but we do discuss some of the opening games, some over/under predictions, and some general takeaways of the upcoming season. 

Then a great interview at 30:30 with Five Trail Whiskey. We talk with Alberto Farias, General Manager of Molson Coors Beverage Company along with their Marketing Manager Kim Fox. Really good stuff with them. This is an American blended whiskey that really delivers a smooth finish with some sweetness early and a little spice late. Hank gives it a 9.5/10 rating. 

Then we wrap it up with Matt's pop-culture segment talking about the opening episode of House of the Dragon and that series. 

Thanks for listening!

Big show this week! We start off with our thoughts on the MLB standings as things sit right now. It's really a 3 team race in the National League and 2 in the American League to us right now but see if you agree. 

Then a huge interview at 21:30 with Ivan Saldana, one of the co-founders of Casa Lumbre Spirits. This stuff is awesome. All locally sourced products from Mexico and California. Amazing flavors and a variety of spirits including corn whiskey and gins along with others. This was a great time at Tales of the Cocktail talking with Ivan. 

After that we get into some college football news to wrap it up. We will talk about the chance of expanding playoffs, breaking off from the NCAA, and the state of the sport in general.

It's been quite a layoff and quite a two year stretch for everyone. We missed the show and bringing you stories from the spirits world and talking sports so we are finally back. Season 7 kicks off with Matt and Hank getting back into the swing of things with a brief discussion of the state of college football. We'll talk more on that in the coming weeks. 

But we start back up with content from the recently completed Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. We got to sit down with the creators of De Nada Tequila and learn what make their product so special. Catch that interview at 23:30.  

After that we wrap it up with some streaming tv analysis and pop culture from Matt. As always check out our website at www.sportspiritshow.com for the latest shows.
