    Batch 214: Sunken Treasure Tax Evasion

    Batch 214: Sunken Treasure Tax Evasion

    Another episode, nice. Alex and Michael do this one. They talk about Miller Lite doing a collab with J Balvin, the new Modelo Oro light beer, and Lagunitus doing a sleek rebrand. They drink beers from Wondrous Brewing, Forest and Main, and Alewife. They also do a bit about Blackbeard's ghost. That's worth the listen alone imo.

    Batch 212: Mezcal Madness

    Batch 212: Mezcal Madness

    Alex and Michael invite comedian Nick Gligor back on the pod to drink some mezcal. In beer news, Alex breaks down the newly enacted New Jersey brewery law single-handedly making it even more difficult to like the state. In the mezcal throwdown, they drink mezcals from Del Maguey, Banhez, Yuu Baal, and Codigo 1530 and crown their favorite. They also eat worm salt and play a game in which the winner wins a jug of crickets.

    Batch 211 with Deanna Belos from Sincere Engineer

    Batch 211 with Deanna Belos from Sincere Engineer

    For this one, we invite Deanna Belos from Sincere Engineer on the show to talk about Chicago and drink malort. She and the Malty Boyz drink a Cantillon they apparently weren't supposed to, they talk about chalk beer, and then they do an all Chicago-based bottle share with Second City meadery, Keeping Together, and Jeppson's Malort.
    Check out Sincere Engineer on their east coast tour. Find dates at https://sincereengineer.com.

    Batch 210: Michael Caine Brewing

    Batch 210: Michael Caine Brewing

    Alex and Michael do another episode by themselves. The bits are debatably better than last week's. It's a shorter episode than usual which is cool. They talk about beer stuff and then they drink beer and talk about it. Michael has to write these show notes while Stephen is gone.

    Batch 209: the 2022 Assies

    Batch 209: the 2022 Assies

    The malty boyz are missing a boyz but the show must go on. Stephen is somewhere out in the world on a #wanderlust, so Alex and Michael are locking it down doing what they know best: so so bits and phoned in beer reviews. We will never change.
    On this one we’ve got beers from Good Word, New Groove Brewing, and Monkish. We talk about Stone hopefully almost for the last time and we dust off the AB InBev vs Coors corn syrup controversy after a few years.

These guys are great, honestly! You get to broaden your vocabulary every episode, you get beer news, you get to hear people drink beer (so you don’t have to) and talk about it/rate it, really funny improv bits. Seriously, I laugh at least once every episode. My wife don’t even hate it, and she hates EVERYTHING!
