08-08-21 Small Bites Radio

D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents Small Bites Radio the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia” and #1 listed “Food Radio show South Jersey”. Small Bites on Wildfire Radio returns this Sunday, August 8th at 635pm EST with a fantastic lineup! #SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 out of the Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020 and 2021 as well as being named #23 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Influencer in 2021.

In the mood to party? Everyone is invited to a 21st birthday celebration to enjoy a nice adult beverage. The beverage of choice and the epic 21st Anniversary Party is being thrown by 21st Amendment Brewery. We will chat with Co-Founders Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan about the party at the brewery and about how 21st Amendment Brewery releases a new 21st Anniversary West Coast IPA in 33 states across the country in tribute to the hottest beer style that defined the brewing scene. Established in 2000, 21st Amendment brewpub in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood quickly became one of the city’s favorite pubs. 21st Amendment began expanding beyond the Bay Area by helping to pioneer the movement to canned craft beer. Known for their witty names and delicious brews, 21st Amendment offers year-round selections, as well as seasonal offerings and their infamous once-in-a-while limited-edition releases. Sold in 33 states plus Washington D.C., 21st Amendment produces beer in its state-of-the-art brewery headquarters in San Leandro, California and is among the top 50 craft beer brewers in America.

Then we will be joined by Fred and Perteet McSween Spencer, Co-founders of AYO Foods bringing authentic West-African Cuisine to U.S. grocers with their homemade frozen food line being in nearly 50 Whole Foods Market locations. Also the company just launched their new hot sauce line which will be carried by 1200 grocery stores across the US making it accessible to those who love to explore and enjoy ethnic foods. AYO, which means joy in Yoruba, features nutrient-dense, flavor-rich, frozen entrees that are conveniently packaged and now all of their dishes can be spiced up even more with their new West African Shito Sauce and Pepper Sauce being added to their product line.

Last but certainly not least, Richard Massi the President and Co-Founder of Fight On Makenna Foundation will tell us about the 2021 Bite for the Fight Food Festival happening on Saturday, September 25th. The Fight on Makenna Foundation was created in the memory of his 14 year old daughter Makenna who lost her battle with leukemia in September 2018. The Fight on Makenna Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for kids and families facing pediatric cancer. In their two short years of existence, they have raised over $200K to help fund programs in partnership with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to help kids and families as they deal with the rigors of cancer treatments. Makenna was a foodie (mostly carnivore) and loved friends, family, the Food Network, and the Philadelphia Eagles. So they created Bite for the Fight to showcase some of the best food, beer, wine, and spirits in the Philadelphia Area. Makenna was a fighter to the end of her short life and they brought that competitive spirit to the festival by allowing the restaurants to compete for the honor of the Best Bite voted on by the patrons of the festival. The 2019 event was even attended by Chef Robert Irvine.

2016 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival

1 beer1

(The following is a special series on Bluejeanfoodcritic.com written by guest contributing writer William Knowles. He highlights his passions of of trying something new whenever the opportunity presents itself, or possibly something old, but new again since it has been a while. I hope you enjoy his very special perspective that I am sure many of you can relate to. Follow him on his exciting journey “Around Town”)

2016 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival

Three years in a row! I again was able to attend the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival. Like the prior versions, the 2016 event had three sessions spread out over two days, Friday, April 8th and Saturday the 9th. Again held at the Atlantic City Convention Center, this was the 11th annual event, and is a runner up for the top beer festival in the country. All three of the sessions were sold out, and Jon Henderson and his team outdid themselves once again.

Over 140 total breweries were in attendance, with many returning from years past – Anchor Brewery, the Cape May Brewing Company, Coney Island Brewing Co., Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, Harpoon Brewery, Magic Hat, Troegs Craft Brewery, Yards Brewing Co., Victory Brewing Company, Flying Fish Brewing Co., Redd’s, 21st Amendment Brewery, Big Muddy Brewing, Horny Goat Brewing Co., Shiner Bock, Firestone Walker, and Captain Lawrence. Two new favorites of mine were there with fantastic ginger beer – Hollows & Fentimans, and Barritt’s.

There were again numerous options for food: Phillips’ Seafood House provided crab cake sandwiches, Philadelphia favorite Chickie’s and Pete’s with crab fries, and Tony Baloney’s Pizza and Subs was on hand again with their famous “mustache mobile”. The Continental, Stephen Starr’s submission to the festival, provided great cheesesteak egg rolls.

Once again, live music proved a big part of the festivities – Dashboard Confessional, Manchester Orchestra and Reel Big Fish were this year’s main attractions. The event organizers again did a great job in their attempts to place firm emphasis on fun no matter where you were throughout the day. A regulation size football goalpost was mounted in one wing of the hall, allowing amateur participants as well as NFL hopefuls to take a shot at a field goal. A mini go-kart race track was again a hit, and new this year – the “silent disco” (where dancers hit the floor with headphones on, not allowing an outsider to hear what they were dancing to). The “Batmobile” also made an appearance, promoting another upcoming comic book event at the convention center…

I hope to be there again in 2017 for the 12th annual event. As I have said before, I urge any beer lover who has not made their way to AC in the past to join me! See you yet again later this week “around town”…
