💛Noah’s laugh makes up for lost robot
You guys slay me every time. No other podcast consistently makes me laugh until I cry. The beer nerdery is always enjoyable but the friendly roasting is what keeps me coming back. Well done, gentlemen. Now all you need is a regular woman on the show - maybe someone who knows how to pronounce Ekuanot.
Oh. And I love love LOVE Noah’s laugh.
Being somewhat new to the craft beer scene I was lost with what to get. Then Mike opened my eyes with can alerts, that now all I do is wait for his segments. Mike is P.O.N.C.A. (President Of New Can Alert)
Glad I found this podcast. Just what I was looking for to hear beer content and it is entertaining as well. Highly recommend.
