Here’s one novel idea for what to do when you’re stuck in Los Angeles traffic: Brew beer with Miami Heat star Chris Bosh.

In the second episode of First We Feast Presents…That’s Odd, Let’s Drink It,” mad-genius brewmaster Sam Calagione—founder of the craft-beer trailblazer Dogfish Head Brewery—meets up with the 6’11” NBA All-Star to brew a never-before-scene stout…in style.

Utilizing a state-of-the-art PicoBrew Zymatic home-brewing system, Sam and Chris brew inside a stretch Hummer while driving around Los Angeles looking for ingredients inspired by Chris’ love of Texas BBQ, as well as his off-season adventures abroad. With a little help from Kevin Bludso of Bludso’s BBQ, they discover the magic of a pitmaster-to-brewmaster alley-oop, then add a whole gang of globe-trotting spices to kick up their stout even further.
TOLDI_bosh_BBQThough he’s never brewed at 60 miles an hour, Bosh is no stranger to the beer-making process. He has home-brew setups at his homes in L.A. and Miami, and he’s always on the lookout for new brews to samples.

“[Dark beers] are just what I’m on right now,” says Bosh. “I’m sure after a little while I’ll be onto something else, beer style-wise.”

Watch the full episode above to see how Sam and Chris transform brisket rub into delicious beer.
