308: I Don’t Need a Challenge In My Mouth

Come join us in our 2 hour, 40 minute punk rock beer fest. You may learn something. We sure did.*

We start right off with a one-item Awesome List, Hamilton. I know, it’s the trendy musical right now but it’s worthy. Trust me. We discuss the germ magnets that are coins. Victoria teaches us that Soundwave is a hipster. We discuss some of the beers we’re about to taste and initially title the episode, “Crossing Streams” but then the actual title came along and ended that real quick.

We quickly discuss some Ottawa memories like Mill St Brewery (a new InBev addition), Pub Italia, and Hop City’s Barking Squirrel Lager. Oh and we braved Safehouse again, after the Rachel incident of 2015. Somehow Philip Rivers’ virility comes up somehow and how he fills up his 20 room mansion.

After trying our first beer, Brandon and Victoria reminisce about UK food and drink. We had some great Big Dog beer and hat tip to Bob Barnes for providing it to Brandon who shared it with us. Hat tip as well, to Dave Otto for the last batch of awesome beer he made for Big Dog’s Brewing.

Daniel and Brandon talk about how they met, starting with a burger review and culminating in a Beer to the Rescue event. It’s so emotional, Daniel censors himself. Brandon covers the mistake by bringing up the Redskins/Braves racial team names issue. Is it complimentary or derogatory. What do you think?

We start in on a bit of history and then on to beer #2! Before we get into that, a bit of insider info on upcoming new BevMo beer shelf organization. Once the San Diego beer talk starts, well dear listener, it ain’t going to end for a while. This includes some personal plugs for Alesmith and Victoria chasing 15 year old girls while carrying a glass of sangria, then having an epic moment in Arizona for Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, we visited the awesome DaHonays for their epic Halloween festivities. This included visits to The Perch Pub & Brewery for great beer and disappointing tots, Angel’s Trumpet Alehouse for beer and crispy spam sliders with hawaiian bread, sriracha mayo, feta cheese and cranberry slaw, The Lost Leaf Bar & Gallery which may be the strangest bar/music venue/art gallery fusion venue I’ve ever been to (though the Rinkuškiai Werewolf Ale I had from Lithuania was amazing), and closing out Mother Bunch Brewing by helping them blow their IPA keg (yeah I said it) even if they aren’t up for treating beer kegs with respect (allegedly). They did have an amazing brew process mural in the hallway to the restrooms.

We saw King Diamond recently and I play clips of Abigail and Halloween under the conversation as we discuss man buns and mosh pit etiquette. Somehow we follow this up with the great The Peanuts debate. Does it offend you? Do you feel bad for Charlie Brown?

304: Hitler Karaoke

It’s time for Karaoke of the worst kind! Tonight, we start off with Victoria right out of the gate. Hope you enjoy! Our first beer of the week brings us back to summers on the farm with chickens, except none of us have been on a real farm. Rachel likes the idea of horses but not the real deal. Apparently, keeping sloths as pets would also be out.

After the first beer, we start in with Rachel plugging shit, starting with Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. This discussion also includes a bit of confession session with Rachel. There is some talk of the Cat Convention, and how MMA is more hugging than fighting.

Daniel and Victoria went to Utah and they talk about their trip. There was coffee shops, an aquarium, breweries, a ballgame, Park City, and good food. Spending time with family was very enjoyable and though we did a lot, we came home feeling like we had a week of relaxation.

Victoria has a great idea to put beer in an insulated pouch like container like Capri-Sun. Speaking of beer, we had one of the worst beers we’ve had to drink in a long time on this show. Thankfully, we have an awesome list to follow this up. Oh and someone finally had the courage to call the Uncast drunk dial line! So we’ll end it there after 94 minutes!

291: Glitter & Emetophilia

Hey if you think releasing an episode 2 weeks after recording was bad, try a full month. We truly hope that we still have listeners. In fact, let’s do that right now. If you still listen to the show, go to facebook.com/uncast OR email uncast.net@gmail.com and let us know. New meme, more people listen to Uncast than have died in America from Ebola.

Victoria goes through some ideas for Unniversary. It’ll be March 21, 2015. Plan accordingly. No excuses! Unless that excuse is “I don’t listen and I want no part of you and your hoodrat bullshit.” If it’s the latter, we understand. You’re dead to us anyways.

First order of business for Unniversary: bring the most derelict and the most awesome “American” treat you can think of and Andrea will have to try it during Unniversary. Best and worst snack will win a prize of some sort. It’ll be better than an Uncast shirt or a bag of condoms. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. Of course this also starts a conversation about various treats we loved as kids; both American and Mexican. Tamarind, chili, and sugar is awesome.

We went to Tony & Kristen’s wedding and we had an amazing time. My cousins came out to enjoy some beer for a day and after four breweries. Again, a great time was had by all. Shout out to Indian Joe Brewing and Karl Strauss. Also, Lost Abbey Brewing and Belching Beaver Brewing.

Victoria reads us a story about a threeway gone wrong. Not saying what happened but Meat Gin is a thing now. Read that as many times as needed to let it sink in. In the meantime, let’s discuss some Facebook bullshit. Yeah it really could be anything but it’s this shit. Somehow this reminds Vivi of the London Beer Flood.

Glitter is a horrible thing but now you can get pills that make you poop glitter. Victoria wants to shoot glitter into space. Somehow this ties into a semi truck with a naked woman riding in it, that hits a school bus. Guess that state. It did lead to Fitness Swingers. Don’t ask how. Just look it up. Or don’t.

Sportsing! The World Series has been determined but we recorded this when the NLCS had just ended. It was a fairy tale series of Royals vs Giants and in the end, the Marlins won? They’re owned by Jeffrey Loria so they’ll never win. Jeter > Mantle > Olbermann. We just needed to make that clear. Tired of Gawker bullying, Buzzfeed plagiarism, and Deadspin mansplaining? Go to the ClickHole!

Also May 2015 is coming up. Everyone find the best pair of shiny pants for MrDahonay’s next birthday! Speaking of my brofriend, we have beers this week. Also related, in China, a woman’s virginity is worth $5000. WTF people. Also WTF, don’t turn foods I like into dessert. No cappuccino chips. No hot dog flavored snacks. No mac n cheese ice cream. We don’t need no Bertie Bott’s Every Flavored Chip Bowl at Unniversary. Or do we?

285b: Meatloaf Farts

Starting off the next half, let’s just say this bottle of Stone Cali-Belgique was not what we remembered. The NBA and NHL Finals just ended and we discuss. Why? Because why the hell not. Miami has an interesting mascot, the Habs cartoon description is a bit interesting, and this is where Victoria stops paying attention, hence the title. Here is the link.

The Ballad of Raft Fucker continues. If you don’t watch Game of Thrones, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!?! I swear there’s no corelation between those two things. It just happened. (HSFE) HODOR. Mad Men is fucking awesome as well. Watch that too.
Vivi went to two concerts in the same week: Lady Gaga and Wanda Jackson. We learned a few things. First, Vivi says no to pants whiskey. Second, alcohol doesn’t really burn her anymore. Before Wanda Jackson, we went out to the Aero Bar for scotch tasting. SO MANY CHOICES! Spicy maple bacon mixed nut brittle. Make it happen. It keeps away the green puppies. Or something. I don’t know. I was at church.

Victoria tells the tale of the drug cat song she sang for Cinnamon. And you doubt TD4W?! Speaking of, Victoria came with an Awesome List. El Gran Viaje del Senor Caca? and quick note, Butch (DJ BrotherDarkness) is now known as @TheButchRosser on twitter and not the old name he gives on the show.

285a: Code Magenta 4 What!?

This one went so long, we had to split it into two episodes.

WARNING: This show is full of #TD4W and begins with Victoria taking selfies instead of hosting the show. This is balanced out as the show gets better the longer we go. We visited more breweries this week and we think we’ve found our Official Summer Beer of Uncast for 2014? Don’t agree with us? Then YOU pick somethin!

Victoria creates two brothels and we negotiate deals for said brothels. We discuss the etymology of “The Bees Knees.” Then there’s this thing about this little street taco shop called Puesto. Best tacos in San Diego, awesome tequila (half price when someone scores) and the best rice & beans ever. Even their salsa and chips are worth noting.

Another thing worth noting: Butch has been getting LAID. It’s all in the vibe, law of attraction, and all that stuffs. Speaking of, is there hotel code for when someone leaves the hotel between 3-7am alone who wasn’t alone earlier? Strangely this leads to another Victoria sex worker kickstarter. This one oddly comes “third hand.” New Hobo Code.

What do you do when your name is Crystal Metheny? Listen and find out or click that link there. This of course naturally seques into beer number two, Rough Draft Amber Ale. Who cares about the World Cup? Who are you rooting for? Victoria picks ‘em by hotness. Butch is rooting for Italy (free tequila) and Ghana (cause why not, amiright ladies?) Yeah guess who’s already out by the time this airs.

Moving on, we have Jason Mamoa cast as Aquaman. This naturally segues us into the man who can’t seem to stop getting “intimate” with pool rafts. Does sex with an inflatable doll also constitute a crime? This of course, leads Victoria to a new business idea. This leads to the rest of us washing our brains out with more beer. It’s also where we end part one of this episode.

Starting off the next half, let’s just say this bottle of Stone Cali-Belgique was not what we remembered. The NBA and NHL Finals just ended and we discuss. Why? Because why the hell not. Miami has an interesting mascot, the Habs cartoon description is a bit interesting, and this is where Victoria stops paying attention, hence the title.

284: Supercalifragalacticinterplanetentiary

Rachel’s here and we start right off getting racist. We try to distract ourselves with the first beer of the week but Vivi can’t help but continue and she follows this up by applying for a job at Buzzfeed via podcast. Again we blast one beer and praise another. We also discuss how aging beer in used barrels is better than used condoms. We don’t want to know what might grow out of THAT concoction.

Moving forward, Rachel talks about the highs and lows of her holiday here after graduating from WVU. This includes wine tasting, brewery tours, new restaurants, and a day getting lost around downtown San Diego. Victoria and Rachel saw the new X-Men movie and they discuss their thoughts on it. This sends Victoria into a Comic Nerd lesson.

Victoria and Rachel also enjoyed a great concert featuring a couple new favorite bands: Nickle Creek and Secret Sisters. This gets us into a discussion about concerts past and certain preferences we’ve developed. We try the third beer of the evening and Victoria’s brain leads us off on an awesome side track of strange words.

Allison and Dave got married and we share our love for them AND that awesome wedding. We were sad to have to leave early but Vivi had an appointment with an iguana, or Iggy as we call her. Meanwhile Rachel and I went to Slaters and Stone to start a week of WINE AND BEER!

We hit up Rough Draft Brewing, Hess Brewing, and Intergalactic Brewing all in one day. Then we visited Orfila Vineyards for a tasting the same weekend. We talk about the recent fires throughout San Diego and how strange it is that they struck so early in the year. This and a quick end to the show.

283: We’ve Lived Too Wrong For Too Long

Butch joined us again 3 weeks ago for another one of those shows. Yes, I really need to get more timely with my editing. I do apologize. Anyways, this is a tasting episode. We have beers we love and some we don’t care for so much. Okay, to warn we really are quite harsh to one of them. Apologies to the dear loving friends who shared them with us. We also have another Doritos Mystery Bag tasting and some odd sodas.

Trips to Arcana Brewing and Off-The-Tracks Brewery went pretty well and we drove an Iron Fist through our brains with a flavours we hadn’t thought about with beer but why not? The NFL Draft comes up briefly but not so much to bore the non-sports fans. We’re more kind here.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa has stairs? This confuses some of those in the audience. Also Pisa not being in Rome also confuses some of us. Can we get Richard Digits III, Esq on this please? No? Too busy chasing roosters, maybe? Again, I swear we’re not being hateful. I feel like these show notes are making me repeat this. Here let me make it better, the forcefulness of Daniel’s ejaculation is brought up. Okay, I’m not making it better. Let’s just move on.

We make an official a call for Church of Awesome strippers. You can apply in person or just email us a video. Speaking of peeling off ones underthings, Tom Jones’ still got it. So does the U.S.S. Midway. Maybe he’s a vampire? Perhaps the Midway is the Hellmouth? Who knows but it makes sense, doesn’t it?

This leads to two seconds of mourning Community before jumping into the awesomeness of food; specifically, Fogo de Chao. If you have one in your city, GO. Churrascaria often leads one close to gastronomic suicide. This fact leads us to create the Brewnut Challenge: pairing great San Diego beers with the signature donuts at the best shops in San Diego. Oh, and Butch had some awesome tacos at this place called Puesto or something. We end with more beer tales and send you on your way.
