Welcome to the new world. We take a stab at our first ALL Skype episode. We test some homebrew and a mystery production beer from Martin. Despite the challenges, we had a great time an can see some future possibilities. Enjoy!
Kenny and I sat with Chris and Evan of Crusader Brewing in Bakersfield to talk about their first year in business and things to come from them. We sampled some of their staple beers plus some early tastes of beers to be debuted as part of their 1 year Anniversary event 2/22/20. We had a great time drinking great beer and hanging out with great people!
Kenny, Josh and Shawn got to sit down with Frank (@panchothemex) and talk about his new brewery prior to the grand opening later that day (1/31/20). He gave us some background on the brewery plus we tasted some first batch samples off the new equipment. We had a great time sitting down with our longtime friend and frequent guest. Looking forward to what the future brings him on this journey of bringing great beers to downtown Bakersfield! Congrats Pancho!
Sat down with Kenny, Frank and Temblor Brewing’s Mike Lahti to send him off into the sunset as he prepares to leave the brewery and head closer to home. We also spend some time talking about Frank’s progress on 2nd Phase Brewing and getting ready to open!
So this is where we kinda fall off the rails. We had a great time but I think the big ABV beers started to catch up. Hope you are able to enjoy the show.
Joey and Josh come by the studio to discuss the recent Imbibe Hop Shoot Out Competition and Joey brings some beers back from Maine for us to try. Great time and great beers. We even took an inappropriate call from Kenny of course. This is part 1.
The second half of our long episode with the boys talking about many things including throw-back beers and current beers.
A full house for this part 1 of 2, Kenny, Frank, Josh and Martin all come over and hang out in the INK Studio. Had a blast goofing around with the guys and sampled some great beers…including some throw-back beers from back in the day.
Got to sit down with our buddy Frank of 2nd Phase Brewing to learn about progress of the new brewery and what we should expect. We sampled some home brew, some production beers and even sampled the ever so popular White Claw! Thanks to Kenny and Richie of IPA Today for sitting in and bringing some great beers as well!
The second half with our sit down with IPA Today, Josh, Matt and Kara while we sample some LCB beer among others.
Part 1 of 2 with Kenny, Josh, Matt and Kara.
We kind of screwed the pooch on this one. It was Lysander’s annual visit to the show. We had a full house and unfortunately audio problems that didn’t help…but damn it was fun. This is part 1 of 2. Both are a bit of a train-wreck but we sampled some great beer and talked a bunch of trash with some great friends. Try to enjoy it.
We visited Crusader Brewing this week and sat down and talked to co-owner and Brewer Chris for a lengthy chat about the start of this new brewery in Bakersfield and the local beer scene in general. We also had a few other friends stop by to add to the normal fun shenanigans. It was a blast and really appreciate the hospitality from Crusader!
Visited IPA Today Studios to sit down with Vance from the Bakersfield Active 20/30 Club to recap the 2019 Country and Craft Beer Festival. We also took a phone call from John from the Unfiltered Brewts crew to hear about all the great stuff they have coming up. Joey crashed the party right at the end to share some highlights from his recent road trip. Had a great time and sampled some great beers.
Sat down with friend and homebrewer Josh, Manny and Jeff for a long conversation that spanned homebrew, commercial brew and pretty much anything else beer. We tried some great beer and had a good time. Had a few other special guests that added to the fun.
Wow! What an event….and this is just the pre-party leading up to the 2019 Country and Craft Beer Festival. We sat down with IPA Today, Vance from the Active 20/30 Club, a few awesome brewers and a cool new Bakersfield Country Band called Imperial Stout. A terrific event, raising money for local children’s charities. Can’t ask for much more than that. Get your CCBF Tickets now!!!! Link in the episode notes.
Thanks to Kenny for hosting this episode at their studios. We chatted with non-IPA drinker Kevin, we kept Joey awake after night shift and even got a visit from Richie. Drank some great beers discussed them as usual. Enjoy.
Sat down with Kenny, Jacob and Martin to discuss the up and coming Non-Alcoholic Craft Beer world. We sampled a few with traditional craft beer sprinkled in between. We had a great time catching up and enjoying some great beers.
Kenny and I have a skype conversation with Edgar from Beer Thug Life and then we recap 2018. Had a great time with both of them and drank a couple great beers. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
In this splitcast with IPA Today we chat about the previous weeks party at LCB and a slew of other inappropriate stuff. This is the first episode in the brand new studio. Hopefully we can get back on track with episodes. Besides Kenny we got to BS with Troy, Joey, Martin and John. Plenty of laughs and of course some inappropriate jokes and comments from the peanut gallery. Try to enjoy and not be offended.
Sat down with IPA Today and a couple lady craft beer lovers. They give us some prospective of the beers they love and some other female umm, insights. This is a loooooong 1 of 1 episode. You’ll probably want to spread it out over a week or so.
This is part 2 of the splitcast with IPA Today where we chat with Lysander @l.a._Ramos and @djodeed . The beer continues to flow and it starts to show. We had a great time and managed to offend everyone in the room and beyond. Good times for sure….remember, it’s all in good fun and meant to be for entertainment purposes 😉
Another fun episode with Kenny from IPA Today. In this episode we sat down with BBQ Master and Beer aging guru Jake aka @DJoDeed and the return of Lysander of @L.A._Ramos to the show. What a great time in this part 1 of 2. We also spent quite a bit of time apologizing and recapping from the Country and Craft Beer festival episode. The audio was terrible and we really wanted to highlight some of the people we got to talk to. All this plus we sampled some amazing beers!!
Got to sit in with Kenny from IPA Today at the opening of the 2018 Bakersfield Country and Craft Beer Festival. The party was awesome but unfortunately the audio quality suffered due to all the activity in the area. We talked to some great folks, hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy it. Thanks to the Active 20-30 Club for having us and all the work they do every year putting on this great event. Hopefully they’re able to donate a ton of money to local children’s charities.
It really was an honor to get the opportunity to record this podcast with IPA Today before the 2nd Annual Meet Your Brewer Event at Lengthwise. This event is basically a pre-party to the upcoming Country and Craft Beer Festival schedule for 4/7/18. Besides having ontapbakersfield.com Troy and @panchothemex Frank sit in, we had reps/owners from Lengthwise, LCB and Temblor take turns on the mics. We also had Jada Motontemarano of 23 News, school us on how a professional broadcaster behaves when the mics are on. Can’t thank the boys at the local Active 20/30 Club enough for having us. These guys put on both events all in the name of local children’s charities. If this event is any indication of what we can expect for the festival, I can NOT wait. Last year’s festival was amazing and I have confidence this year’s will be as well. Class Acts!

This episode is part 3 of 3 with IPA Today. I don’t have much to say about this one except…Sorry. 🙂
We had a ton of fun recording it and it’s really an inside listen to how a lot of guys just hang out and talk trash to each other. Most everything we say doesn’t mean much more than trying to get the other guys to laugh. Not much of it was serious and shouldn’t be taken that way. Please try to find the humor in it all and disconnect from all the negative in the world for a bit.
Let me start off by saying, this podcast is for your amusement and totally fictional. We spend a lot of time putting together these episodes and scenarios. Making them appear unplanned and chaotic is not an easy task. Bringing in trained actors to pretend they are inebriated to be as offensive as possible is not easy or cheap. The offensiveness is not mean spirited and intended to be from a comedic perspective.
Now take a listen and try to enjoy the madness.
Part 1 of the splitcast with Kenny from IPA Today and Kevin. Had a great time drinking some great beers and talking some trash about… pretty much everything. This is the part before the wheels came off. Enjoy!
This is kind of where we fell apart. Part 2/2. I couldn’t stop laughing, Todd kept talking trash, Jeff stared at his phone and Robbie sang us a song at the end. We ranged in topics from crappy neighbors, more Huell Howser, Frogs, Gophers and a return of Fruit Loops. We even took a drunk call from Joey. What a mess of a show.
Had a fun ass time with Rob, Jeff and Todd in this episode 1 of probably 2 or 3. This part we explore topics from Ear, Nose and Taint Doctors to California Gold’s Late Great Huell Howser with some impersonations by Big Rob. Todd made fun of us for being beer snobs. It hurt my feelings.
Editing this one reminded me how much fun we had up at LCB for their 2yr Anniversary Party. What a blast! IPA Today, Troy from ontapbakersfied.com and @panchothemex all helped while LCB owners, Tyson and Katie tried to keep us in line…or not….they actually probably threw fuel on the fire.
Somehow through the shit-show, we managed to talk to Rapper Riddy K who gave an impromptu performance that rocked, DJ Dynomit3 and Chris from Beer Zombies. Check all three of them out, they have great stuff coming out NOW!
This is part 1 of the pre-party show we did with IPA Today, Ontapbakersfield.com and @panchothemex at Local Craft Beer in Tehachapi, CA. LCB was celebrating their 2 year anniversary and Tyson and Katie had us all up to podcast before the party started. We chatted with a handful of people including @beerzombies himself. It was a great time and I really appreciate the hospitality @localcraftbeer showed us. Thanks to IPA Today for helping put it together and doing the recording on their setup.
The second half of the show with Kevin and Jeff. The beer starts to kick in during this episode. It hurt the next day but we sure had a great time. We talked to Dan on the phone and Tony from The Empty Tumbler Project podcast out of N.C.. Please remember to rate and subscribe on iTunes, GooglePlay or whatever service you use.
Kevin and Jeff come over and hang out for this part 1 of a long night of drinking and goofing around. We chat about beer, Fruit Loops, Turkey Day, Stranger Things and the 80’s.
The “That’s what she said” episode with Troy and Rob. We took a phone call and generally fell off the rails for this one. It was a ton of fun for us….hopefully it comes through and entertains you too.
The beers continue to degrade our better judgement and Rob and Troy sing a duet of an ’80’s song. Troy questions why he agreed to be on the show and tarnish his good name. Enjoy!
Have you ever seen one of those train wreck videos on YouTube where the train is moving very slowly and the wreck just kind of happens in slow motion…and it just keeps going and going and going?? Well if you know what I’m talking about you’ll know what this episode is like. I blame Kenny. We had a blast. Chris and Joey were still there and we even had a call from John of the Mash Time podcast. Towards the end @panchothemex Frank showed up to witness the chaos.
Robbie makes a return visit to sit down with me and Troy from Ontapbakersfield.com to chat beer and promote the upcoming Bacon and Craft Beer Festival in Bakersfield. We also drank some awesome beers. Troy brought some he picked up from Bakersfield Beer Company. Part 1 of who knows how many. We chatted for a while. This is an out of order post…math is hard!
Hey, Happy International Podcast Day! http://internationalpodcastday.com/ #InternationalPodcastDay To continue our theme of collaborating with IPA Today, this is part 1 of a 2 part session we did the week after episode 23. Joey and Chris sat in for Richie. We drank a bunch of great beer that totally wrecked all of us. I don’t think we drank anything under a Double IPA…~9% and up. I sure hope you enjoy this half as much as we enjoyed making it. Check back next week for part 2. Check out some of the beers we drank over @localcraftbeer in Tehachapi, CA.
So I made the mistake of visiting IPA Today Studios for this one as they were finishing one drunk episode and starting another. We were drinking beer from Garage Brewing out of Temecula, CA. I did my best to catch up with them. If you’d like to hear what put them in this condition before my arrival you’ll have to head over and download their episode 57. Good times.
A little sample of a recent episode we recorded with IPA Today. As always, had a great time but ended up regretting it the next day with a killer hangover.
Holy Crap, what a ride!!! Went up to Tehachapi to do a live broadcast with Kenny from IPA Today, Joey, Troy from Ontapbakersfield.com and of course Tyson and “Hot Wife” of LCB. What a great ass time. The beer was flowing, the tacos were awesome and the crowd was kinda, sorta interested. A train wreck to remember!! Enjoy.
In the 2nd half, we continue to drink great craft beer and make inappropriate jokes. I shoot some beer out of my nose for the first time during a podcast…thanks Kenny! It was a great time hanging with Kenny and Lysander. As always Kenny brought the jokes and trash talk and Lysander brought a bunch of beer knowledge and fun conversation. His tagline is “Getting you faded”, and yes we all got faded. Check them both out on IG @ipatoday93312 @l.a._ramos . Part 2 of 2.
Maybe I should edit this but it’s too hot and I’ve had too much beer to care. We made a special trip to IPA Today Studios to combine forces and interview Instagram Beer Sensation Lysander Ramos @l.a._ramos. Had a great time talking about beer and an inappropriate story or two from Kenny. Damn fun. This is part 1 of 2.
Yeah, me too. Time to get some stuff done! Just have to find out how to get out of this heat.
Check out the I’m Not Kevin YouTube Channel. At this point there’s only audio but check back soon for more!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP35C5pwEXHW5bh86Ps0CaQ
I’m almost embarrassed to post this half. We pretty much fell off the rails once the beer kicked in and Jeff showed up. At one point I think we forgot we were recording audio. We had a great time and I hope you find a way to enjoy listening to it, even if it’s half as much as we did making it.
Robbie came over for some drinking time at the studio. We were sampling some new home brew of mine. Robbie was hungover, and it took him some time to wake up.
It was somewhat an impromptu recording session with little prep and not much of an agenda….and I won’t lie, it shows! But we had a good time, told some stories and generally goofed around. Kenny from @IPAtoday93312 called in. We also harassed Jeff on the phone and guilted him to come over which you’ll hear on part 2.
For this session we ended up at Mash Time Stu’s recording studio for some awesome beer talk. Troy from http://www.ontapbakersfield.com guest hosted for Mash Time. Kenny from IPA Today and Uncle Frank brought tons of beer knowledge and inappropriate jokes. We also took a phone call from Stu’s buddy from the Bay area to discuss his first home brew. Sure had a blast with these guys and learned a few things in the process. Spread the word!!
Don’t forget to check out all the groups online info.
Part 2 of last weeks episode with Mashtime John and IPA Today Kenny. Check out the final part of Brew Day at John’s.
@ipatoday93312 @mashtimepodcast Make sure to check out their podcasts as well.
Hooked up with John from Mastime and Kenny from IPA Today for a brew day at John’s house. Kenny and I did all the work, don’t let John lie to you. We also had John’s wife Anna and friend Tyler along for the ride. Quite a bit of beer talk of course with a lots of goofing around in between. Had a blast and learned some brew stuff.
Try to suffer through the IPA Today Intro. We recorded on their system and I inherited their handy editing work. 🙂 That’s for you Kenny!
@ipatoday93312 @mashtimepodcast Make sure to check out their podcasts as well.
Finally got another episode done and here it is. Had a blast hanging with Jeff, Rob and Kevin drinking and talking about beer along with a bunch of other chaos. We even had a few phone calls during the episode. One from Robbie’s wife, one from Kenny with IPA Today Podcast and TWO from Kevin’s cousin Mike! We spent some time talking about local craft beer, home brewing, and local beer events. If you want to know what’s coming up in local Bakersfield beer scene, check out www.ontapbakersfield.com, if you want to hear some serious talk about home brew, check out the MashTime podcast on iTunes, if you want to hear some non so serious beer talk, check out the IPA Today podcast! Thanks to LCB in Tehachapi for making a damn good beer that gave me some hope for IPA’s! #beer #podcast #homebrew
I know, I know, it’s been too long. Going to try to squeeze an episode in this weekend with Big Rob!
FINALLY! We were able to get Todd and Jeff to sit down and tell some fun stories of their teenage years. Some innocent stories and some not so innocent. We had a great time and I think it’s the start of many episodes to come with these guys!!
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones from The I’m Not Kevin Podcast!!
Unfortunately Todd was under the weather so we weren’t able to record last night. Hopefully he’ll get better and we can reschedule soon.
Just scheduled some time with my brother and an old friend, Todd. This should be a fun one. Stay tuned….
We didn’t put a lot of thought into this episode but we managed to cover just about everything. We sampled some good beer, talked about sports, 2016 elections, lots of music and managed to record some bodily noise. A pretty lame episode but we had fun and managed to tell some funny stories and jokes. Hope you can filter through the junk to get to them. You even get to listen to me try to figure out live broadcasting on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
I know I haven’t had much to share lately but hopefully I will soon. Stay tuned. In the meantime, I created a YouTube Channel for the podcast. Nothing posted yet but hopefully we can play with some live streaming events.
Wooo Hoo!! A new episode. This is a special episode with the boys at www.ipatoday.net. They hosted the session at their location and we had a damn good time. We sampled some beer, told some stories and just generally talked trash to each other. I look forward to hooking up with them again sometime!! Enjoy.
Hey ya’ll! Working on a couple podcast ideas. Stay tuned. While you wait, check out my buddies over at www.ipatoday.net They drink beer and talk trash to each other HA!
If you listened to episode 10, you’ll know why this is funny….
So who’s going to Village Fest in Bakersfield tonight? I’m Not Kevin will be there!! It’s always a great time, great beer, awesome music and fantastic food.
In this episode we introduce my old friend Mark. He’s been around since high school and has lots of dirt on me to say the least. It was his first time on the mic so I think it was a little odd for him getting used to it. Couple that with Rob showing up after day drinking, there was some strange non vocal jokes going on between the three of us. It was fun and I hope that comes through for you. If you have kids please don’t let them listen to this episode. We kind of take it off the rails for a while. Enjoy!! Please excuse the clicking in the first half. I haven’t quite figured out where it’s coming from. After our break, it magically disappeared. Go figure….
Rob said I had to share the video we were talking about where I almost get knocked out. Here ya go
Just wrapped recording with Robbie and Mark. It was pretty fun but this one is going to be a little strange for you listeners though. There was lots of non audible communication going on which may be the risk of having close old friends get together. We have a blast but not sure how well it comes across over the mic. I’m sure I’ll make it fun in the edit. Whenever there is awkward silence, maybe I’ll add a fart noise or something. Now I just have to find time to edit and post it. Keep an eye out for it! #imnotkevinpod @imnotkevinpod
Some pics I took during recording. One of the peanut gallery laughing and the other of the dog that almost made Rob poop his pants. One more just for fun….

Good old friends Rob and Mark are scheduled to come by and spend some time in the hot seat Saturday night. Looking forward to it!! Submit questions to ask them via Twitter @imnotkevinpod . #imnotkevin
In this episode I spend time with an old friend, Keith Jones, talking about his life’s journey to date as well as his endeavors as a Professional Comedian, Radio Talk Show Host and small business owner. Make sure you check him out on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/Jones.TheComedian and his Ice cream and Grub Truck on Instagram @servinsmilestruck . He’ll be Servin’ his funny at Temblor Brewery in Bakersfield September 24th for the Oil City Comedy Royal Rumble. Listen to him every weekday morning 6a-9a, 88.3 KAXL Life in the Morning with John and Keith.
In this final hour of our long recording session Rob and I get even stupider. We had a good time talking about movies, farts, movies, drinking, movies, Beavis and Butthead and more movie references. Take a listen. Please subscribe and rate us.
Apparently tonight I don’t look like Kevin but instead I look like “Chris”.
I like the theme starting in the iTunes reviews. Code names! Awesome. Come check us out and write a review. Don’t forget to subscribe so you get all the new episodes right to your phone!!

This is part 1 of the 3 hour long conversation with my best friend Rob. It ranges from discussing the new music by the band Prophets of Rage, to some technical difficulty we had and even ghosts. The rest of the audio will be posted at a later time.
Music credit goes to Prophets of Rage and is NOT a product of the I’m Not Kevin Podcast. It was only used in the podcast because we talked about the great album.
This episode is a shortened version of the sit down with Rob. We called my “Cousin” Brandon in Dallas and learned a little about him and his life as a Holzworth, a Father, a Husband, a gun owning American, and an AJ Fernandez Cigar rep for the Southwest area. He has lots of hilarious stories that I think you’ll enjoy. Excuse the poor audio quality as we recorded a lot of this one from an iPhone speaker phone.

I recorded an extended episode with my best bud Rob tonight. We recorded over 3hrs of audio that I now have to edit. We had a nice surprise guest via cell phone in my distant cousin Brandon Holzworth from the great state of Texas. It may all end up being 2 or 3 episodes but I’ll get it edited and uploaded as soon as I can. Stay tuned!
I’m getting antsy to sit down with someone and record a new episode. Who shall it be? Hmmm????? Stay Tuned.
As promised, this is the 2nd half of what we recorded out in my brother’s backyard while celebrating our Dad’s birthday. After dinner was done and cake was consumed, the drinks kept flowing and the stories got better. Unfortunately the audio wasn’t always the best but we made due with what we had to work with. Hopefully you are able to enjoy it. Special thanks to my brother for hosting, my best friend Rob for making it to the party and helping to make it fun. Vago and the rest of the bunch that contributed as well!
So here is the newest episode and it was a fun one to make. We had a little get together at my brother’s house for our dad’s birthday. There was family and old friends over. We setup the recording equipment right in the backyard and let’er rip. Chaotic at times but overall a fun time. I hope you enjoy it, we sure did! Some names have been hidden or changed to protect the innocent…or not so innocent.

We have a new episode scheduled to be recorded next Saturday with my best friend Rob. This should be a good one. We’re probably going to drink some beer and tell old school stories. I can’t wait!!
So I finally got a chance to corner my daughter long enough to put her in front of the mic and chat with her. We had a good time goofing around and even had a bit of serious conversation….but mostly goofy. Enjoy.
Recorded an episode of the podcast with my daughter tonight. Should have it edited and posted tomorrow night if things go as planned. Check back soon.
So I lied, the first episode was NOT with my daughter. She bailed on me a couple hours before I had planned on recording the podcast. So, what’s a guy to do? Spring it on his wife that he needs a guinea pig. And that’s exactly what I did. My wife was cool enough to sit in for my learning experience. Please take a listen and let me know what you think. I know I have tons to learn but maybe you can still get some enjoyment out of this episode. Don’t forget to subscribe via iTunes or GooglePlay.
Tomorrow, I’ve scheduled some time with my daughter to record the first official episode of the I’m Not Kevin Podcast. I’m excited and nervous. I sure hope it goes well. I hope I am able to keep the conversation going and interesting. My 15 y/o daughter is quite a ham and has a great fun personality so I think she’ll save my butt if I don’t know what I’m doing. This will be a good one to cut my teeth on I think.
That’s all for now, check back soon for Episode #1 of the I’m Not Kevin Podcast!
Welcome to the I’m Not Kevin Podcast page. This is a new podcast I’m starting to share life stories from my family, friends and any other sorry soul I can get to sit down with me. We should have some funny, interesting and heartfelt stories from folks close to me. I’ll even share a story or two.
