So good!

Can’t get over how great this podcast is! Good beer talk, great movie conversations, it’s just so good. Just listen. There’s nothing else to say!

Craft beer and horror movie lovers, look no further

Great Podcast, they always have great beer recommendations. I’m not much of a horror movie expert, but after a few craft beer pints I become an expert on just about everything. Very original and fun to listen to. Keep up the great work.

Seriously. Listen to this podcast!

This podcast is exceptionally great! I really enjoy listening to Kathleen and Bob talk about something I love so much - craft beer - and something I have a mild interest in - horror. They make it so much fun to just sit and listen to their conversation because they're taking the time and effort to engage the listener. I also love how they purposely pair the beer with the movie, it's a super unique concept. Definitely can't wait to hear more from these two!
