Each week, the Drunk Guys tackle a famous book while drinking #Craftbeer matching the book, characters, themes, etc. What beer goes with Orwell's 1984? Founder's Dissenter IPA, of course. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? Seven pumpkin beers. A great #Podcast for readers, drinkers, or anyone with a raunchy sense of humor. Way better than English class.

My favorite book podcast
Two of my favorite things books and beer. I knew i was going to like this podcast just by the name. It did not disappoint. The guys are funny and entertaining. I look forward to new episodes.
Can be funny but is strangely condescending and mean spirited at times.
Pretentious bros talk about books and beer
I like books. I like beer. I do not like this podcast… even though I really wanted it to be a good find. While there is some good commentary about the books, it’s hard to get beyond the dudes’ pretentiousness and cringey jokes that inevitably come up in every episode. I gave it a try - lots of tries actually, with many of my favorite books - but I just couldn’t endure their personalities anymore. And while I enjoy solid beer recommends, it’s not super fun to hear people talk about random beer that they are currently drinking. It’s not like I ran to the store to grab the same six packs that the podcast hosts are drinking. Listening to them describe the random NY beers they consume became unbearable.
