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?

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.



Rhianna vs Avril Lavigne Meet & Greet

Space Taco Comic

282: Your Child May Be Ugly

Your baby: Cute or NOPE? You play along. We enjoy a well-balanced Stone beer. Cinnamon gets into shit. Booze Brothers & Barrel Harbor breweries entertain our beer cravings. Victoria likes Hearthstone but some guys can be flat out dickholes. Victoria shares dumb Buzzfeed article suggestions.

Racist stores bring Victoria new business ideas and we bring you the racist news of the week with Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy. We pick up beer of the week #2 before finishing up RNW with an epic reaction to racist football fans. Speaking of, we had an epic time with the SD Mixtape Society and if you’re in the area and enjoy discovering and sharing music, you should come join us in June!

There are entirely too many damn trending topics related to One Direction! Closing pitchers should not come out to “Sweet Home Alabama.” Daniel rants about a difficult situation many men might know about. This leads to a Facebook rant. TL;DL Go back to using diaries and Fuck Buzzfeed. One thing that doesn’t suck? GoExplore.Net – Check it out people.

281: Beats By God

Butch joins us yet again and this is the love episode. Love of Game of Thrones and beer brought us to the SD Tap Room and we had a nice evening with a couple of cool ladies. Victoria has Z-BRO-tolerance but talking geek with Kate and her friend, made them disappear. While waiting, we enjoy some beer at the Barrel Republic (who mostly stole Bear Republic’s logo) and learn what the “Gaslamp Strip Club” of beer would look like.

Karaoke anyone? Let’s set that shit up on Chromecast and enjoy it with cheap beer. Uber has Victoria so smitten, Lyft is gonna have to go places to win her over. Anyone got 5 cents? Ellie Goulding’s thighs could give you the best makeover ever. Oh and thighs are totally hot.


We create new beers for Societe Brewing thanks to a Coronado Brewing barleywine. More beer? Cake crotch!


Ghost breweries? We don’t mind. We’re trying to hit 100+ breweries by the end of 2014 and we discuss 5 of them in this episode alone. Looks for the links at the bottom of the notes here. Poor House has a panty dropper, Hillcrest has a chandelier, Butch is a holy man, Plan 9 doesn’t brew yet, Dos Desperados has yoga, and Acoustic Ales will make you sing.

Butch and Daniel discuss new a new racist fusion restaurant. Naturally, this leads to the way Victoria is. She knows why the caged bird sings, and she gave it to Freyja. So that happened. Daniel went to SM2Dub (Social Media Marketing World) and met some cool people.


We streamed Homechella (thanks again, Aldo) all weekend thanks to Chromecast, and enjoyed beers and games. Grab your favorite bong, pucker up and turn the volume to eleven. Sexy Cat? Sexy cat. Are Bastille just a better Imagine Dragons? Does Ellie Goulding’s thighs beat all? Are Arcade Fire the new Nickelback? Who would you have in your Coachella list? We each give 7 acts for our Unchella. We somehow end the show talking about the phaedra complex and sparkle hobos. Rule 34 continues. 95 minutes of awesome for you.


Where girl go?

Hillcrest Brewing – Banana Hammock Scotch Ale
Poor House Brewing – Santa’s Panty Dropper Barrel-Aged Winter Ale
Plan 9 Alehouse – URBN St IPA

277: Oscars Beer and Stuff

Welcome to the 2014 Oscars episode of Uncast. We also spend a lot of time talking about beer, the Olympics, games and other things. Let the race begin.

OK so for The Oscars, here’s a recap: Ellen was cool, pizza delivery was not. Lupita Nyong’o winning was cool, The Art of Killing losing was not. It sooo was not. “Let It Go” was a beautiful anthem song and Vivi was seemingly the only person happy that McConaughey won for Best Actor. 23 minutes in, we hate goodbyes and endings too but it’s time to move on to another topic.

The Olympics just ended and we haven’t really talked about anything more than the sex the athletes were having. Does anything else matter? Yes. The fact that we missed so much because events aired at 4am Pacific Time.

Beers of the Week include an old favorite of ours from Great Divide Brewing and a new found favorite from Butcher’s Brewing. Get them if you can. We hit breweries numbers 5 and 6 in our tour of San Diego breweries. Oh and also related, check out Mary’s Donuts in Santee. We also hit up Twisted Manzanita Ales for a flight of their seasonal ales. Check out our Beer Review page for more on those. Length 1:11:24
