    Episode 38 - GABF '19 Barnaby Brewing Co.

    Tap In, Geek Out returned to the Great American Beer Festival in October of 2019, and we're excited to (finally) bring you the incredible collection of breweries that were kind enough to share their time and stories. Our first episode from the festival coverage set a tone of humanity, strength, and grace that turned out to be a common theme we heard throughout the weekend. Matt and Kelly Barnaby made the nearly-3000 mile trek from Juneau, Alaska with an assortment of beers that were as exceptional and inspiring as their journey to bring Barnaby Brewing Co. to life... Twice!

    Episode 37 - Wrinkling the Stone

    We would never leave your poor heart alone here on Tap In, Geek Out. This week Doug & Eric revisit one of our favorite segments, The Wrinkly Sack. Doug's turn to choose the film meant that we got to dig deep for buried treasure in one of his all-time favorite movies; the 1984 Robert Zemeckis classic Romancing the Stone. How many Eddy Grant references can we jam in between our gushing over the sultry and alluring tones of Kathleen Turner? Join us with a cold one, and feel free to sing along.

    Episode 36 - Far From Strange

    Episode 36 - Far From Strange

    Storming the Radio Shack at Starcourt Mall while armed to the teeth with fireworks is how we wish we spent the 80’s, unfortunately Doug & Eric were busy sneaking warm beers behind the neighborhood pool, dreaming of the day when we could barely write two sentences of copy for a podcast description. Thankfully for you listeners, our resident comic book expert Carl Lundeen is here to provide some insight into the new Spider-Man flick and how it compares to some sonnet he wrote about the Bolshevik revolution in the eighth grade. We really appreciate the break, we’re elated to be back, and hopefully this won’t be the last time you read something this doltish from us in 2019.

    The Summer Beer (listen for Carl's recipe) ~11% ABV, negligible IBU: Doug 4.5/5
