The Former Business 40

The closure of Business 40 in Winston-Salem has had a direct effect on businesses in the downtown area. What other towns could have a major road, that basically bifurcates the entire town, shut down and that town act like nothing happened? None that we know of. The closure is of a scope the state of North Carolina has never seen. But, we have to start blaming something else for the struggle it creates for the businesses within our fair city. Could it be an oversaturation of the same kinds of places? A workforce that is underqualified to handle the demand? There could be a hundred reasons but the bottom line is our businesses, and to an extent, our whole city, is struggling and suffering. The Dads talk about what’s going on and possible reasons why.

The Beer of the week is Been There Done That Double IPA by Casita Cerveceria.

The show was recorded at The Lab at Industry Hill. Industry Hill is a business-minded neighborhood in the former Warehouse District. In the district are restaurants, a chocolatier, a distillery, two breweries, a beverage company, an entertainment complex, textiles, packaging and much more to come.

Remember there is no The Beer Dads Podcast today. We would like to take a moment to remember those who have ultimately lost to the benefit of the freedoms we enjoy in this country. Happy Memorial Day!

Student loans. I know we are all groaning right now. The dreaded student loan. Bane of recent college grads (or dropouts) and even long-

lived adults. When the Dads went to college, mostly tuition was affordable and many times loans weren’t necessary, or there were other ways they got their tuition paid. Dad Tim is different, he went back to school later and racked up some serious student loans that are around 2/3 of his mortgage. With all three Dads either having kids in college or approaching that age, what does the future look like for these young people’s lives? Tuition and boarding rules and rates are so high now that many people have so much student loan debt that it either comes close or exceeds the value of the holder’s mortgage on his home. That’s why many people call student loans their “other mortgage.” Do you have student debt? Do your kids? What can be done about it? How do you prepare your kids for it? Let us know.

You know you can’t please everyone, right? Sometimes, though, it seems you can’t please anyone. Whether or not you’re trying to please everyone or not, there will always be people complaining, especially online. It’s one thing to give your opinion, but your opinion gets lost when you just start whining and complaining about stuff that is irrelevant. Let’s call it what it is… bitching. Be constructive, not destructive. You can voice dissatisfaction but you don’t have to bitch and moan. Truthfully, it’s only your opinion anyway and when your opinion becomes a crusade to convince others of your contemptuous and many times erroneous opinions, people start to shut it out or follow you into the idiotic abyss. Keyboard warriors most likely wouldn’t say half of the things they say online to someone face to face. Maybe that’s a good thing, probably it’s a bad thing. The Dads talk about this, possibly bitching themselves.

The Beer of the week is Elevator Lady by Unknown Brewing Company. Yes, this is a tribute to Cherie Berry, the current NCDOL secretary. So, we have to direct you to a great song by Alternative Champs about Mrs. Berry. You can hear that HERE.

Beer Dad Tim’s son 3B got his first job today. Not only did he get a job but he also got a job in the very industry that he is aspiring to be part of. That’s step one of “the dream,” right? It could very well be a defining moment in his career. With that info, The Dads talk about their first jobs and also their worst jobs. Having a job (or at least the ability to make a living) is a big step and very important.

The Beer of the week is Chop Shop IPA Session Ale from Aviator Brewing.

The show was recorded at The Lab at Industry Hill. Industry Hill is a business-minded neighborhood in the former Warehouse District.

Bethany Miller comes back to talk with us about cigars, her life, how she has totally immersed herself in the world of cigars and how being a bad-ass just comes naturally. Actually, Beer Dad Tim said she was bad-ass (she is his “work wife” on The Less Desirables podcast) and it’s pretty evident we all agree about that. Great conversation with a great guest!

The Beer of the week is Ulfberht Baltic Porter from Burial Beer.

Bethany Miller of Top Leaf Cigar Lounge

Bethany Miller is in to talk with The Dads about Top Leaf Cigar Lounge. But, not only that, she goes into, with amazing detail, the history of cigars, how they’re made, the stigma of them and what it’s like to be a woman in a “man’s business.” She is one of Beer Dad Tim’s cohosts/work wives on The Less Desirables and she is an awesome force. This is a not-to-be-missed show!

The Beer of the week is Cloud Pleaser Thunder Cloud IPA with Mango from AMB.

The show was recorded at The Lab at Industry Hill. Industry Hill is a business-minded neighborhood in the former Warehouse District.
