What It Is
Couple of guys talk about beers while doing a little light drinking.
Show runs 45 minutes to an hour and drops a new episode every couple weeks or so. It’s been around since 2010 and all 200+ episodes are available at the iTunes archive. Very low-key, just a couple of guys chatting.
What About It
I swear to God, I know part of the whole beer renaissance thing is proving that beer can be enjoyed by connoisseurs and all that, but you’d think podcasts dedicated to alcoholic beverages would be more fun. There’s got to be a beer podcast out there that’s funny and charming. It wasn’t the brewing podcast I listened to before and it’s not this one. This one is a very quiet, very serious conversation, which might work for some people who are very much into beer. I’m not very much into beer, so I found this one uninteresting. No humor at all and the hosts have zero charm or chemistry. I don’t know, man.
1 star. Warned against.
Whenever you get wasted, you always end up embarrassing yourself by calmly giving pedantic lectures about bottles.
Avoid Like the Plague
You mainly give your beer to the dog.
Where to Start
Just . . . I don’t know . . . the iTunes archive.
