    Ep 116 - The World's End

    At last, we've reached the end of our journey for the Coronetto Trilogy with Sean from A Glass Half Film. It's always a good time with Sean, and this episode is no different. Drinks were had, jokes were shared as we discuss Edgar Wright's genre-bending masterpiece while none of us had a Coronetto over the course of the 3 films / episodes. We blame you, Sean. So grab a coldie, and lets boo-boo this thing together!!!

    Ep 115 - Dan Ouellette W/ Fall Brewing

    Happy National Beer Day, everyone!!! We've got a special episode to help celebrate and it just so happens to be the head brewer of one of our personal favorite breweries: Fall Brewing. We count ourselves lucky getting to chat with Dan and learning more about Fall's approach to beer and their signature culture.
    Dan even brought gifts! Making it's 3rd (or is it the 4th?) appearance on the show is Brad's personal favorite of Fall's lineup: Let's Go IPA. And to round things out we also had another Fall staple: Plenty For All Pilsner, which has been on the show as well, because guys... Fall makes incredibly great beer and we enjoy it. So grab a coldie, and let's learn some things about beer and these North Park legends!

    Ep 114 - The Burbs

    I guess at this point we should just become a Tom Hanks podcast, eh? This week we go back to the 80’s for another Hanks gem: The Burbs. So if that sounds good to you; grab a coldie and let’s chat about the inevitable hellish neighbors we’ve all experienced. Luckily we have Benny from 10 Barrel Brewing to guide us with their new and fantastic Mai Tai cocktail in a can to keep those pesky cannibals next door at bay.

    Ep113 - Antlers

    Howdy, Folks! After a long sabbatical the R&B crew have found willing hosts to carry on our malevolent deeds of discussing beer and chatting movies. On this episode we possess and drink with Tom from Thorn Brewing while chatting about a flick that we’d been excited / forgotten about since ya know that whole global pandemic thing happened and it’s release was delayed a couple years. Grab a coldie, and tune in while we take a stab at figuring out what exactly Antlers is trying to say.

    Ep 112 - Best of the Best

    Ep 112 - Best of the Best

    A very large congratulations to our friends at Savagewood Brewing" for keeping their doors open for 4 years, and during a pandemic nonetheless!!! We asked friend and owner Darrell how we can help celebrate, to which he replied "let's do an episode on the only movie that has made Brad cry" - so yeah we're doing Best of the Best.
    But what episode would be complete without a beverage? And we're talking an ultra special beverage here, folks! Savagewood brewed in collaboration with Reviews & Brews to create "TOMMY NO!", a Red Rice Lager that highlights that even in defeat a man can achieve victory and honor but just chilling out and having a delicious coldie.

    Ep 111 - Joe Vs Volcano

    Random, right? What could possibly make us chat about a 31 year old Tom Hanks movie? You can blame our pals The Porters who own and operate Smog City Brewing for that one! Join us for an ultra-sized episode while we explore how crazy pertinent Joe's journey is to us modern day worker bees, and why this movie is so special to The Porters.

    The beverages for this one is Smog City's delightful Kelp Is On The Way, a west coast IPA that is part of their Community Impact Series (which we get great insight on in the episode), and Tropical Farmhouse, a Foudre-aged saison that blew us away. Grab a coldie, and let's get into some deeply expensive but life saving luggage talk!

Great content. Love this podcast

These guys are great. So entertaining to listen to and they’re super knowledgeable about the movies.
I always crack open a beer when I’m listening and pretend I’m drinking the same beers as them! Haha

Movies and beer! Such a great combo.

Ken and Brad do an awesome job on this show. They’re super funny and have a great chemistry, and honestly I enjoy hearing them rip on each other. It’s fun to listen to each of their reactions to different beers. They also don’t always agree on movie opinions, so it’s really interesting to hear them get into debates about some of the movies they’re reviewing. Both have fresh and unique perspectives and they make this show super entertaining. It’s always a treat when they have guests on, too! Love hearing from some of the brewers they feature on the show. Keep up the good work, gentlemen!
