Bands and Brews is slated to be a new segment for BIRDMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN and will cover exactly what it states, Bands and Brews.

In this introductory segment Birdman chats with Jacob Forney from Black Horse Brewery about his approach to beer making, how the Brewery got its name and other things most fans might find of interest.

The Black Horse Brewery opened in Show Low,  Arizona in May 2015.  Although newly opened, we have been brewing, testing and tasting for over 30 years.  

Black Horse Brewery is a family owned and operated Micro Brewery creating and brewing high quality products for the craft beer fan. From brews inspired by old German recipes to modern and unique blends, our beer is always crafted with all-grain, all-natural ingredients for a full flavored taste. 

Black Horse Brewery is owned and operated by Ralph Forney, Brewmaster, Jacob Forney, Brewmaster and Marketing, and Julie Forney, Secretary/Pub Cheese maker/Beertender.

Stop into our Hole in the Wall Tap Room, or request a Black Horse Brewery craft beer at your favorite restaurant or saloon.  

P.S.  Yes, we do love horses, but actually the name of our brewery is based on Ralph's many years of service in the United States Army as a member of  the Black Horse Regiment!

Listen along as Birdman conducts this interview during the High Mountain Musicfest, in his car!
