312: Let’s Burn Things

Everyone quiet down! Victoria has something to say and you know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation. That’s right, we’re starting this one off with a TWO (you heard me) TWO Awesome List show and the first is ALL Miss Queen Bey herself. And how old does Butch sound saying “from the Harry Potter…?” While he might look like a lost Weasley, I’m not so sure Ellie Golding’s ready to get Sirius Black. Daniel knows. He can tell you ‘cuz he’s Batboy now.

Speaking of that, clickbait of the week: Victoria went to a concert with her dad and what she did will shock and awe you! All these distractions finally bring us to our first beer of the week and how is it we haven’t reviewed Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout before?! Well, it’s amazing. Next topic. Butch goes into his week of food poisoning. NOPE. NEXT TOPIC. How about Neil Degrasse Tyson vs B.o.B. in a little diss-track back and forth featuring the Flat Earth Singers? Either way, Steph Curry is the Cool Papa Bell + Christy Mathewson of basketball. We discuss wrestlers past and (not related) an awesome vegan restaurant called Cafe Gratitude.

In a trio of unbelievable news stories, a man kills his wife with a dutch oven, a tiger befriending a goat constitutes homosexuality in Russia, and a dead old hag hates Jay Cutler and social media goes wild. The first Beer to the Rescue went very well and folks at Benchmark Brewing were awesome but that 13.7% ABV Hildegard IIIPA, while delicious, will knock you on your ass. We of course, followed this up the only way you can follow up anything so awesome: Coop’s West Texas BBQ. This leads us to Beer of the Week #3. Green Flash made a great IPA this holiday season and when they’d finally grown tired of it, sold it for $2 a bottle or $20 a case…for 22oz bottles. What a delicious beer. And note to Groundswell Brewing, Budweiser is more a beer than your Belgian Trippel is a Trippel. Belgian trippels shouldn’t have American yeast and be over 90 IBUs. This brings us to our second Awesome List of the night and our Super Bowl predictions. Hint: don’t rely on us for predicting anything ever.

311: It’s Like Caligula For Children

This is our first recorded episode of 2016. Creed makes God cry. Victoria gets upset because a Buzzfeed Quiz told her she’d fail 4th grade science. Facebook trending topics are ridiculous. For example, are German people racist for buying Mein Kampf? Guess where the Kardashian loving Vivi sides on this debate. I’ll give you a hint: Daniel takes a hard “Fuck Cancer” stance, while she takes a softer “it happens, get over it!” approach.

Our search for brown ales continues. The first from Alesmith, is amazing. The second, by Black Market, not so much. This is made up by the new Uncast Winter Cocktail. Want to know how to make it? Listen to the show or call the Uncast Line. Christmas was eventful with a great basketball match and a new favorite cocktail bar, Seven Grand. This follows with Daniel being very adamantly wrong for a second time in the show. It’s kinda awkward how wrong he is.

He does tell a story about a pretty epic day that he and Butch had on December 12th. We ended 2015 with a wonderful night at Becky’s house with great food, drinks, and Cards Against Humanity. We move on to 2016 goals (not resolutions) which includes a great book Becky got for Victoria, Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook which is a book of vegan recipes that have so far been pretty amazing. From food back to beer and on to movies. It’s a natural progression! We enjoyed all three blockbusters we saw this winter: Star Wars The Force Awakens, Hateful Eight, and The Revenant.
