RH 012 Savings Tips and Hopslam

Show Notes

Retirement Segment

  • Inspired by Episode RH 010 Living Paycheck to Paycheck
    • 10% – 15% of income is wasted
    • We thought why not do an episode about how to save that wasted money
  • We used an article from NerdWallet.com entitled: “How to Start Saving Money”
    • And we focused on Daily Savings
  • Saving money is a mindset
  • Get control over spending
  • Use automated tools such as Digit which transfers money from a checking into a savings account
  • Save loose change
  • Use cash instead of a credit card
  • Prep for grocery shopping
  • Order smaller servings at restaurants
  • Get discounts on entertainment

Beer Segment

The beer segment begins at the 9:20 mark.


  • Hopslam from Bell’s of Kalamzoo Michigan
  • A double IPA that is released just once a year in January
  • Hopslam is rated a perfect 100 from RateBeer
  • Supplies are limited so it is difficult to come by
  • Because it is very good and scarce, it is expensive. I paid $19.99 for a six pack of 12 cans
  • The ABV is 10.0% and the IBUs 70
  • Bell’s says:
    • Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
