Alien mother; earthly pimp ... 3 humalien are conceived. Papa pimp dies in the heat of cruel alien passion.  His humalien triplet sons learn to play guitar, bass and drums. Taboo, Intellijamus and Otto E. Roticize are adopted by Dr. Wonder Bred, the reculsive scientist who orchestrated the bizarre mating experiment which brought them to life. The human scientist and keyboardist, Wonder Bred, together with his therapist/legendary Tuvan banjoist Kimo corral the humalien stepsons' musical prowess into the Super Sonic Soul Pimps with a mission to spread their peculiar musical gospel to the remote nether regions of the globe and beyond.

Do not fear! Ignorance is your locker buddy; panic your panacea. Grab a mouthful of Super Sonic Soul Pimps and a slice of Wonder Bred for your rocket ship has, at long last, arrived. Vrrrrroooom!!!

About Us

Bylaws and Such



BMBS meets once a month for small tastings - 4 bourbons. If meetings are at a restaurant, the restaurant purchases the bourbons - the cost of the purchase is added to the meal bill divided by the number of people tasting.

Leftover bourbon is BMBS property enjoyed by society members until the bottle is empty.

Members absent our small meetings relinquish their portion of the whiskey, the may obtain their share from the President after the tasting providing there is any left.

Battle of the Bourbons

Twice a year - Winter Battle at the beginning of snow seasonSummer Battle at the beginning of Summer season
12 bourbons battle for title of Best of Beech Mountain - the bourbon served at local establishments for each season.
Members may bring guests to the small tastings with a guest fee of $15/pp, Battle of the Bourbons is open to the public with a per person fee determined by the President and the Venue. If the Battle is at a local Venue the purchase of the bourbons and the leftover bourbon is the property of that venue.
