In Episode 85 we conclude our two-part beer extravaganza, "Beer, beer, and more beer!" We delve into the new WWE viewing format, more British reality shows, pitched ideas of a Joe Exotic/Donald Trump reality show, and, of course, reviewed the last 3 of 6 beers in this beer fest!

Ep. 84 - Beer, beer, & more beer! (Part I)
We're back, and we're bringing you an end of summer treat! In Episode 84, the title says it all. We are reviewing 6 beers over the course of two episodes, so take notes, buy the beers, and treat yourself to the end of the summer of 2020! We talk about the new season of Dancing With The (so called) Stars, British reality shows that have come to the U.S., car importing procedures in Denmark, Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey, American rapper/actor/singer/activist), and the first three beers, of course! Andrew reviewed Mosaic Dream (a 6% ABV IPA by the Other Half Brewing Company, Brooklyn NY), Sean reviewed Blueberry Saison (a 6% ABV Saison by the Three 3's Brewing Company, Hammonton NJ), and Tomo reviewed Mos Def IPA (a 6.2% ABV, 72 IBU IPA by the Long Ireland Beer Company, Riverhead NY). So, pick yourself up one (or all three) of these brews, kick back, have a few laughs, and celebrate the end of summer in style! Cheers!!!
Ep. 83 - 2020 Presidential candidates, Presidente Cerveza
The lads go deep diving into the 2020 presidential candidates. DT and JB? No, not those, they get all the attention. We explored the unsung heroes of the presidential candidates: the maybes and the WTFs (we're looking at you, Kanye). And we had the one and only Anthony Colon (singer, actor, and socialite) to help us in this endeavor. We also reviewed Presidente Cerveza, a lovely 5% ABV pilsner out of the Dominican Republic (except it's brewed in ST. Louis, Missouri?!?). Well, "we" doesn't include The Quig. He got all monarchist on us, and he had King Gabrinus, a 10% ABV Belgian Trippel by Jersey Girl Brewing (Hackettstown, NJ). Bloody limey. Anyway, tune in, follow the nonsense and the tangents, and cheers!!!
Ep. 82 - VelociPastor, Blue Point Summer Ale, & Special Guest Matt Provenza (Part 2)
We conclude our breakdown of VelociPastor in this latest installment, episode 82. The lads and NYC actor & filmmaker, Matt Provenza, give you their take on this viral hit, and give you their grades for the Blue Point Brewing Company's Summer Ale (4.5% ABV, 19 IBU). Tune in for the rest of the shenanigans, because if there is one thing we do right, it's shenanigans. Cheers!!!
Ep. 81 - VelociPastor, Blue Point Summer Ale, & Special Guest Matt Provenza (Part 1)
It's Episode 81, and as promised, we are back with our review of VelociPastor! This low-budget, viral comedy-horror is chock full of greatness! In fact, there were so many great scenes and story lines, it took us almost two hours to break everything down, so we split VelociPastor into two parts. We also sample Blue Point Brewing Company's Summer Ale, a nice 4.5% ABV brew that will quench your thirst. And last but not least, we have special a guest, NYC actor and filmmaker Matt Provenza, who joins in on the fun of analyzing VelociPastor! So, tune in, watch VelociPastor, and enjoy the laughs and brew. Cheers!!!

Will make you hungry (for more)!
I've been listening to this podcast for weeks now and I do have to say it's pretty darn funny! Also the way these two describe the food they're eating and the beer they're drinking makes me wish I was chilling with them instead of being my daily commute on the subway! Listen for a good time!
These guys are a great duo. Fun premise, great goofs, worth a listen!
A fun listen, plus some great food & drink finds. Give it a listen!
