    Batch316: Oh Hell Yeah!

    Batch316: Oh Hell Yeah!

    Batch 316 says I just whipped your @$$! Scott makes his big return to podcasting! Flex gets punched in the face, it's a sad day in sports, Greg's birthday brewery crawl, Goose Island is dropping more barrel-aged garbage, and Florida Man has been drinking again.

    In honor of Batch 316, Scott and Greg are drinking El Segundo Brewing's Broken Skull IPA. Flex is getting hazy with Drekker Brewing's Goon Platoon. This leads to a critical Flex Algorithm conversation.

    Greg talks about his birthday weekend full of brewery crawls, fancy dinners, and even some bad beer (that no one finished). The guys talk about the enormous loss of Vin Scully. Flex goes to a concert, gets real emo, and then gets punched in the face (and his wife has words).

    Maui Brewing is officially taking the keys to Modern Times…eventually. A judge affirms Stone's ruling against MolsonCoors. But Stone gets smacked on the hand for trying to milk Molson for even more money. Firestone Walker's Matt Brynildson receives what might be the most prestigious honor in all of beer. And Florida Man has been drinking at Walmart again!

    Batch315: Healthy Beer for Old People!

    Batch315: Healthy Beer for Old People!

    Aloha, land lovers! This week, the salty crew is talking about vacation beers, beer styles that should make you angry, weird drinking laws for teachers, and why alcohol is good for you!

    Erica is researching Crooked Lane Brewing & East Brother Beer’s collaboration Schwarzbier. Greg is sipping on MadeWest Brewing & Pizza Port Brewing Short Lived West Coast IPA.

    Greg is angry about breweries and their naming, like really angry. Also, he kegged his latest homebrew and can’t wait to share it with everyone. Erica packs up and heads to Hawaii to drink her way across the islands and meets up with some influencers. And it turns out that Greg can’t get seasick, how about you? Flex and Greg discuss how awful Bob Dylan is (there’s a natural transition, we promise).

    Alabama gets very specific with its Ludicrous Libation Law.

    Russian River brings a lot of money to the community with the help of Pliny the Younger. A new study says alcohol is good if you’re over 40. A drunk driver blames COVID for his insane ride home and losing his tires. A drunk Massachusetts man barks at dogs and kisses a child; very Boston of him. And fun facts about Dildo Brewing and Dildo, Canada.

    Batch314: Brewery Catfishing & The Insignificance of IBUs

    Batch314: Brewery Catfishing & The Insignificance of IBUs

    Welcome to the pant-less pub! Neck Nosh’s Erica stops in to make things extra salty with Flex and Greg. A packed show as the crew talks about the insignificance of IBUs, our big anniversary, Flex’s invite to a special beer event, getting catfished by a brewery, Sour Jim’s new business, and belligerent Buddhists.

    Flex is drinking MobCraft Beer’s Low pHunk Rad-Berry sour. Greg and Erica are sipping on Fall River Brewing - Numb Numb Juice Hazy IPA.

    Do IBUs really matter anymore? Greg has a recap of Naughty Pine’s Emo Fest. Flex was invited to MobCraft’s Weirdfest preview night and had some bizarre beers. Erica lets it out that she has zero idea of the rules of cornhole. And Greg and Erica reminisce about being hammered the weekend of the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival.

    The homie Chew Your Beer calls in to tell us about getting catfished by a brewery. What is the requirement to call yourself a brewery?

    Sour Jim reveals his next venture after leaving Firestone Walker. MolsonCoors will be the first “other” alcohol to be featured at the Super Bowl. Sierra Nevada is closing their Berkley location. And a Buddhist Monk is busted for drinking the COVID away.

    Batch313: Inbetweener Beers

    Batch313: Inbetweener Beers

    What’s the funniest brewery name you’ve ever seen? Zack from Indiana jumps on with Flex and Greg to talk about “inbetweener” beers, setting the right expectations for customers, the best beer prank, more sellout breweries, and Canadian beer with a racy name.

    Zack is drinking Wiseacre Brewing’s Bow Echo hazy IPA. Flex is sipping on ‘Scuse Me, a pale ale from Ope! Brewing. Greg is reviewing Brewery X’s Signature Series Volume III.

    Wakeboarding is tough when you’re old; just ask Greg. At least he found a new lake beer – Firestone Walker Mind Haze Light. The crew talks about an essential beer – the intbetweener. What’s yours? Turns out the Midwest has a funny way of saying Modelo (thanks Flex), and the jury is still out on apricot. And Flex hammers the importance of setting expectations with beer names. And did you know there was a town in Canada called Dildo? They have a brewery.

    Alaska is coming back around for Ludicrous Libation Laws.

    Pliny the Younger brings millions in economic impact; it sounds like an important beer. Melvin Brewing is looking for a “partner”… *cough* buyer. Monday Night Brewing is expanding…again. And the highest-rated beers (so far) of 2022!

    Batch312: National Do You Want Some Day in New Jersey

    Batch312: National Do You Want Some Day in New Jersey

    Do you f’n want some?! Everyone’s favorite Gary-ian Zack drops in to talk about his life as a carnie, 4th of July shenanigans, the pitfalls of “just one more beer,” weird news in the craft beer world, crazy drunk dads, and New Jersey trying to be the worst state for beer.

    Zack is drinking The Beach Within Reach, a Berliner Weisse from Wiseacre Brewing out of Memphis, TN. Flex and Greg are both drinking Mind Haze Hopical Crush, compliments of Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

    Greg talks about the upcoming emo-fest at Naughty Pine Brewing on July 16. Flex talks about his birthday extravaganza, drinking beers, not watching fireworks, and going to Wolf Lodge. Zack talks about his 4th of July, traveling food business, and being a certified carnie. Greg talks about his holiday celebrations and the Jello shots that Coley forced down his throat, as well as ending the night with multiple sours.

    Greg also discovered he left a drunk voicemail while in San Diego celebrating Vanessa’s birthday.

    The crew discovers that New Jersey is trying to become the worst state. EVER. Brewery X shocks everyone and pulls out of the Modern Times purchase. Scotch Whiskey is finally a certified category in the US. Get ready for some spiked coconut water. There’s a new burger/beer collaboration between Tarantula Hill and The Habit. And a drunk dad has a little too much alone time and attacks his neighbor.

    Batch311: Daddy’s Back and He’s Rocking a Mullet

    Batch311: Daddy’s Back and He’s Rocking a Mullet

    Coley is back, and so is daddy! The crew is talking about homebrewing for the summer, the mullet of beers, getting drunk and losing things, beer recalls, and the worst joke you’ll ever hear.

    Flex is drinking Citrus’d, an IPA from Lion’s Tail Brewing in Wisconsin. Coley and Greg are sipping on Jelly Not Jam, a fruited sour from Burley Oak Brewing.

    Greg talks about his weekend full of homebrewing, and what’s coming up for the summer. He also needs some help finishing his beer. And Coley is getting ready to mix up some Jello shots. We also start talking about some sexy mullets.

    Iowa is really bringing things down in this week’s Ludicrous Libation Law.

    MolsonCoors recalls their gross beer. The Qualified Captain and Cape May are collabing again on Boat Ramp Champ Helles. ABinBev is going to share the commercial space during the Super Bowl. A drunk guy loses some important, top-secret information while out on the town. And a drunk man crashes and then urinates in public.

    We wrap things off with a list for Flex; the Top 10 Fruited Sours of 2022.

Great show!

Love the conversations and knowledge on this podcast. Fun, well executed show!

the Fontana Jim ,

Great Podcast, What I’ve Learned so far...

Greg runs the show and keeps things moving. He talks about his job & traveling around the LA Basin for work once and a while. My guess is he’s driving that Supervisor car for the Bus lines, taking naps and running drivers that have accidents to the clinic for a drug test. Scott is like 80 years old and used to be an Uber driver. There is a little mystery about which Retail establishment he works at now, my guess is the Costco Pharmacy. Dan is a mystery. He reminds me of the 30 y/o stoner that lives in his dads garage, because he’s “independent.”
Allie is the frequent guest, semi permanent girl on the show. I’ve almost DM’d her when I was down in San Diego for a beer meet up, but that just sounds super creepy, so until we’re drinking at the same establishment sometime..... Cheers!

All in all, it’s a well produced podcast. It’s got a nice structure and mixes in current beer & sports news. The bumpers are snappy & the banter keeps you involved. The beer talk isn’t snobby & Dan will frequently say something super ordinary, like “it’s a West Coast IPA, it’s good.” Greg then must interview Dan to figure out what’s “good” about that beer.

Give it a couple listens, you might like what you hear.
