Ep 35 – Bad Times At The El Royale

Folks, we here at Reviews & Brews believe that honesty is the best policy… And the truth is that Mason Ale Works: “http://www.masonaleworks.com” straight up got us drunk for this episode. They gave us a literal ton of incredibly high point, delicious beverages to go along with our chat about El Royale which makes for, well, not exactly the most productive episode we’ve ever done. If that’s your speed, then grab a coldie and struggle with us while chatting about Drew Goddard’s new flick at your own peril.

Ep 34 – Venom

If you take a skittish reporter. Subtract a Spider-Man. Add an alien symbiote that takes over said reporter but Spider-Man is still not in this movie, does it still stand a chance? We grabbed some coldies and bounced to the theater to see our buddy Tom Hardy figure out if an all out CGI Venom fest movie can work.
The beverages for this episode were from Culture Brewing: “https://culturebrewingco.com” which included the American Pils and a Coffee IPA which was so good it made us think we were crazy with an alien parasitic organism.

The Horror Movies Episode

“Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination?!”
‘Tis the season to annoy your significant other who hates horror movies by watching copious amounts of them! Join the R&B crew while they chat about what makes a good horror movie to them, and list their all time favorite go-to films when the need for a fright arises.
Witches say that everything comes in 3’s, which is probably why Rip Current: “http://ripcurrentbrewing.com” gave us 3 sinister brews to try! Come along, grab a coldie, and good luck on surviving the night…

Ep 33 – MANDY

The most metal movie of all time deserves the most metal review to follow it! Well, this is NOT that review but we do drink beer and talk about the critically acclaimed revenge acid trip from director Panos Cosmatos.
For this mindf%&k of a movie we needed an equally complex beverage, and our new friends from Resident Brewing: residentbrewing.com were up to the challenge with 2 versions of their Saison Prestige. Everyone got their coldies and comically vicious axes ready? Then let’s do this!!!!

Ep 32 – The Predator

Well, at least Topher Grace wasn’t in this one… Come along with the R&B crew as we go over Shane Black’s hunt to revitalize #ThePredator franchise with an even bigger, more predatory Predator (because it’s BIGGER) and you better bring a trophy beer because you’ll need it.
Speaking of beers; our new friends at Rough Draft Brewing hooked us up with their out of this world Hazy Weekend IPA. Scope more info about them here: www.roughdraftbrew.com

Ep31 – The Nun

Prepare yourself to be whelmed… VERY whelmed! Join us this week to chat about The Conjuring spin-off that shows the origins of the demonic nun that haunts your dreams. You might be… whelmed!
We went out of our local network for the beer this week as a gift of Cascade Brewing’s Kentucky Peach Sour made its way into our mouths. Scope more info about them here: www.cascadebrewingbarrelhouse.com/?p=beer

Recap Vol. 2

With really nothing to see this week (Kin… Searching.. Really?), the R&B crew decided it was time for another Recap. Brad took on The Karate Kid quasi-sequel turned series Cobra Kai, and Ken took on Martin McDonagh’s best movie (it’s a fact, kids, look it up!) In Bruges.

Ep29 – Eighth Grade

Who’s ready for the most awkward review of the most awkward movie ever!? Grab a beverage and listen to us struggle relating to being a kid growing up in the digital age (spoiler, it gets awkward).

Ep28 – The Meg

Jason Statham puts his diving skills to the test to rescue oceanographers that are trapped beneath a chemical thermal cloud in the bottom of the Mariana Trench…. Hey! Are you still reading? Yeah let’s be real it’s a movie about a gigantic shark. Grab a coldie and we can fill you in on the rest!
