    S4 Ep. 49: Season 4 Finale

    S4 Ep. 49: Season 4 Finale

    Another season of #DrinkingSocially is in the books! As 2021 comes to a close, we are reminiscing on the past twelve month's best stories, jokes, and most importantly our Year in Beer. And what a year it was. We're also discussing the official Drinking Socially badge. Long story short, you all crushed it. Now it's time to relax, put your feet up, grab your favorite stein, as hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza find themselves in all too familiar Lagerville one more time. But something is different. It smells like someone is trying to burn Lagerville down! What do we mean? One of the most historic beers of all time has the answer... and it's hopefully one that most of you can grab no problem to help push that Drinking Socially badge to the max! Cheers and we will see you next year! 🍻

    S4 Ep. 48: Brewery Pioneer

    Here we are again to celebrate another December 15th... A fabulous day for film history marking the release of such greats as Gone with the Wind, Million Dollar Baby, and Spice World. Oh yeah, and the day Untappd released its Year in Beer Wrap-up for 2021! We're celebrating all the new beer we had this year and there are many highlights we expect to see as the week rolls on, but this episode is all about the pioneer days. There are over 8,000 breweries in the US, over 11,000 in Europe, and Asia is catching up in craft, while still producing the most beer in the world! Only a few years ago China alone was making almost twice as much suds as the U.S. per year! So, Harrison is not lying when he says that we're in a golden age of beer, and we may even say we're in an even golder age for beer exploration. On this episode of #DrinkingSocially, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza are going to grab some supplies and head west, east, or downtown in the spirit of adventure and discovery. They'll be fording the rivers in their Honda Civics, and hunting for new breweries in their local bottle shops to discover their own version of a California gold rush. Let's join them for the ride.

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 47: National Lager Day

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 47: National Lager Day

    If Oktoberfest is Lager-Christmas...then what is National Lager Day? Is it like a birthday party? How would one celebrate? What are the traditions? We couldn't find any so we made up a few! Maybe everyone leaves a cold, crispi boy on the front porch of the guy with the biggest lawnmower in the neighborhood and in exchange he promises not to mow the lawn before 9am for another season! Or maybe it's more mischievous, and on National Lager Day you're supposed to hide a lager somewhere in the house, and the first person to find it has to climb on your roof and drink it? Maybe it's simpler: perhaps take a self-care lager bath? Light some candles, put on some polka, and just vibe out. There's really no wrong way to enjoy it, but let us know what traditions you think there should be for this phenomenal holiday in the comments below! On this episode of #DrinkingSocially, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza unlock the National Lager Day badge while chatting with Half Time's Chris Weiss about their amazing gift boxes as well as the Hop Culture x Half Time Beer Meme Awards! Let's unpack it all together.

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 46: 12 Beers of Christmas

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 46: 12 Beers of Christmas

    It's that time again... We blinked and now the holiday season is here. The number of weekly "Dunkelwiess Nights" is increasing, we're on our roofs stapling lights to everything, and all we want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are Thanksgiving leftovers sandwiches. Well, we could actually have that all year round. Regardless, the holidays are here! That means a lot of exciting things - great food, family get-togethers, and football. And maybe most importantly... beer! And not just one, or two, or three - but twelve. The 12 Beers of Christmas! On this episode of #DrinkingSocially, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza are unlocking the 12 Beers of Christmas badge with the Clown Shoes Head Brew himself (and of course drinking Space Cake in the process)! It's near impossible to not get into the holiday spirit during this episode as we gear up for the festive season ahead. 🎄

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 45: Old is New

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 45: Old is New

    While we'll try to contain our excitement for the upcoming holidays and festivities, we're here to discuss a very special event. One that in fact falls shortly after a day where most Americans eat turkey and watch football (or complain about football). We're talking about Small Brewery Sunday coming up on November 28th! So, for those of you who need a break from the crowds and coupons, leave the shopping bags in the trunk and enjoy a pint of well-deserved local suds as you celebrate getting your holiday gifts done early. On this episode of #DrinkingSocially, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza talk about why Small Brewery Sunday is the best Sunday to drink a beer and celebrating old ales.

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 44: Winter Wonderland

    Drinking Socially S4 Ep. 44: Winter Wonderland

    It's getting colder, it's getting darker, and the haze of summer is slowly being replaced by flavors like fruits, and nuts, and pine. The colder weather makes hot coffee taste better, gives you an excuse to wear that scarf you looked good in last year, and a reason to stay inside (because it's dark at 4 p.m.) and crack open some of those beers you've been sitting on for the last couple of months. Not everyone celebrates the arrival of cold weather like those in Antarctica (where Harrison informed us there are no bees), but even going back to the Ancient Romans who celebrated Saturnalia as the end of the planting season, and treated everyone as equals (they were onto something there!). Or Buffalo where we just store our beer outside. But here in Untappd-land, we get pretty excited for the cold fronts and darkness. We thrive on the juniper flavored pale ales, and snowy barley wines. On this episode of #DrinkingSocialy, Hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza unlock the "Winter Wonderland" badge and discuss the joys of the chilly, yet delightful season that is approaching. They also give an inside look on the Untappd Insiders program! Watch now to learn more about the exclusive perks and how to join for less!

Ep 33: Entertaining & Educational

Great episode with Kyle (Hot seat was fun) and learning more about beer and Untappd. Enjoyed the puns and wishing I had unlimited funds so I could experience places like Pour Decisions Taproom (2575 miles away). (A surprising number of beers named Pour Decisions.)

BTW, it’s easier for me to listen and do stuff versus sitting and watching. Thanks for giving the choice.

Love the reviews of the local beers, along with the big name breweries. The style portion of the show has expanded my horizon. Keep discussing the various app features, as not all of us are using all its features. Maybe a 101 class for us newbies. Love the first Manscape commercial . Yall did well
