Uncast 324: Sock Talk

We start right off with Victoria getting a little bit racist. We somehow continue without any deaths and the beer of the week, Daniel’s 3rd brew ever is not bad! How not bad is it? LISTEN TO THE SHOW! We also talk about the ridiculous cost of some designer fashion. We have a fairy tale as told by Bray Wyatt to Edge & Christian somewhere in there. Beer #2 comes out and you’ll have to read the Beer Reviews section or LISTEN TO THE SHOW to find out what it was and what we thought. We do discuss Beer to the Rescue 2017 and how nearly every beer that local breweries made for us, were absolutely amazing.

Victoria has a question for all of you: do handjobs by people who speak sign language count as blowjobs? A lot is learned by watching people masturbate. A lot is learned by attending ballgames. Victoria gives her playback of DragCon LA last month.

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.

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?
