    S4 E8 - Written on the Body | Grace | Tickle Parts

    S4 E8 - Written on the Body | Grace | Tickle Parts

    Remote Cast No. 3: This one was a Daniel cast. Two sexy and sad offerings are discussed in Jeanette Winterson's "Written on the Body" and Jeff Buckley's "Grace." The dudes are not unified in their beer endeavour due to social distancing, but Gnick dipped into his stockpile and drinks and talks Levante Brewing's Tickle Parts. Tune in as we discuss love, loss, memory, 40 under 40 lists, and artists realizing their potential. Pop in the buds and get sad, little birds.

    S4 E7 - Alphabet Squadron & Tie Fighter | 2112 | Light Speed

    S4 E7 - Alphabet Squadron & Tie Fighter | 2112 | Light Speed

    Gregorio dorkd out hard on this and gave us not one but TWO eu novels (one graphic!) in the Star Wars universe, Alphabet Squadron and Tie Fighter. He also picked Rush's seminal 2112 and a delightful beer named Light Speed from Toppling Goliath brewery. The dudes talk genre fiction, elitism, joy, and what the f**k it means to still care about things and do the thing in a pandemic. Hell yeah! Ode. To. Joy

    S4 E6 - The Myth of Sisyphus | Superunknown | Beer Suicide

    S4 E6 - The Myth of Sisyphus | Superunknown | Beer Suicide

    Remote quarantine cast with Nick M. and Daniel went surprisingly well given the conditions and topic, suicide. Camus' essay regarding suicide as the essential philosophical question is explored along with his suggestion that we imagine Sisyphus happy. Can we? Can you? Listen and find out. We discuss Cornell's lyrics, the importance of Superunknown for the band and the era, as well as the impact a single creative person can have on an entire community. Then Nick combines a Rolling Rock and a Shiner Cheer and essentially the cast is over. Stay tuned after the credits for a classic 90's move and a secret "song." Dig. Wash Your F****n Hands. Stay distant and stay healthy.

    S4 E5 - Beowulf | High Fantasy | Luscious Imperial Stout

    Top 3 Book.Record.Beer casts brought together by the glory that is The Alchemist Luscious Imperial Stout. A graphic interpretation of the classic epic Beowulf and from there it only gets better. This was one for the ages, quite literally.

    S4 E4 The Narrow Door | Elliott Smith | St. Ides

    S4 E4 The Narrow Door | Elliott Smith | St. Ides

    Nick M. picked this one. Our first memoir in Paul Lisicky's "The Narrow Door," covers nearly 30 years of a life of love, loss, and friendship. Goddamn that is such a reductive summary. What we find in this beautiful work is the nuance of feeling that comes from a thoughtful and poetic observer of one's own life. Lisicky pairs with Smith in this way as we are drawn into the pain of a life by way of a beautifully restrained voice that plants tiny mines in the mind to be set off when one feels the same panic or pain. DISCLAIMER: We did not find St. Ides and instead drank some Old E. It happens. The craft revolution is upon us. We are bette for it. But a 40 now and hen won't kill you. ENJOY

    S4 E3 - Last Night at the Lobster | Thanks for the Dance | Mon Cheri Stout

    S4 E3 - Last Night at the Lobster | Thanks for the Dance | Mon Cheri Stout

    "Zero out of zero pieces of flair because we don't do flair on Cohen," -Franco.

    This quote sums up another incredible calendar year and Holiday Cast with our great friend Franco Fiorini. A gorgeous posthumous album from Leonard Cohen brought the dudes together after various takes on Stewart O'nan's "Last Night at the Lobster." Some say we read too much into it, others thought it wasn't enough.

    Regardless, the Mon Cheri touched this Italian crowd in its amaretto souls and tickled the maraschino of wit within us all. What am I even saying anymore? Who knows, it's the holidays and this one has been filled with friends and laughter and a family made from the love of literature, music, and beer. May the new decade bring your mon cheri your way. From your friends at BRB, we look forward to another decade with you. Smooches.
