Ep 46 – The Lego Movie 2

5 years after Tako Tuesday a bitter wasteland exists in both the sequel to the first Lego Movie and the creativity in Lego Movie 2. Can the star power of Chris Pratt save this watered down dash for cash? Probably, he’s like, huge! Prepare yourself as we fully come to grips that it’s probably not a good thing for a couple of 30-somethings to see kids movies.

The beer for this episode is a special one from our friends at <a href=“https://societebrewing.com”>Societe</a> as we drink their version of Resilience IPA: a recipe made by Sierra Nevada where all proceeds go to the <a href=“https://sierranevada.com/resilience-butte-county-proud-ipa”>Camp Fire Relief Fund</a> to help with the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history. Societe’s take on this was quite delicious, and we highly recommend for the quality as well as the good cause!

Ep 45 – Glass

It’s time, folks. A movie all us Unbreakable fans have clamored and wanted for upwards of 18 years is finally here. But maybe our mad scientist M. Night Shyamalan was so preoccupied with whether or not he could, he didn’t stop to think if he should. So come along with all 26 of your personalities and better bring a coldie, you know, just in case.

Our beverages were graciously donated to us by the legendary <a href=“http://www.moderntimesbeer.com”>Modern Times</a> : a favorite of ours and a brewery which we’ve featured a few times now. We were blessed with 2 brews: the hoppy lager Poly Rhythmo, and a mighty TIPA called Avatar of Might.

Ep 44 – Bumblebee

Prepare yourself for all the nostalgia porn your eyes and ears can handle when we get the most 80’s out movie since, well, an actual 80’s movie! Count and marvel at the easter eggs crammed into Bumblebee at your own peril, and maybe have some fun along the way.

The beverages for this episode were provided by the always incredibly generous <a href=“https://www.masonaleworks.com”>Mason Ale Works!</a>, and man do they love getting us drunk. They transformed our tastebuds with 2 out of this world IPA variants: a red IPA called Charley Hustle, and a Brut IPA called ZFG: Blue Dream.

Ep 43 – Bird Box

Poor Sandra Bullock. It seems that everywhere she goes something terrible follows her. If it’s not mad bombers, or booby trapped yatchs, or ghost like entities that posses you by looking at them, it’s being linked to Netflix’s biggest movie hit yet. Is it worth watching though? Blindfold optional on this listen, but make sure you bring a coldie.

The beverage for this episode is a collaborative effort from <a href=“http://www.moderntimesbeer.com”>Modern Times</a> called Comfort Zone: an American style IPA that we thoroughly enjoyed.

The Best of 2018

A very special episode where we do the predictable thing: our favorite movies (and beers) of the year! Ken’s #1 movie of the year may surprise you, because it shocked Brad.

A special episode requires a special beer, and for that Brad busted out a long saved Quadruple Barrel Big Bad Baptist; the best coffee/choclate stout on the planet from the one and only <a href=“https://www.epicbrewing.com”>Epic Brewing</a>. So come along for surprises, and utter predictability!

Ep42 – Aquaman

It’s about to get a whole lot wetter in here…

Join us if, you dare, as we attempt to actually talk about the adventures of Arthur Curry aka the Aquaman as he plows through armies of CGI water creatures including crab people. CRAB PEOPLE! Seriously there’s crab people in this movie. If that doesn’t entice you, well maybe a constantly soaked Khal Drogo will.

We needed heroic beverages for this movie, so we turned to our saviors (again) <a href=“https://www.division23brewing.com”>Division 23</a> to quench our thirsts. And no, the beer wasn’t CGI. But the crab people were real…

Ep41 – Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

If you would have said that a couple of drunks would be glowing and raving about an animated kids movie, we probably would have said “yeah… sounds about right”. We have a lot to say about this hyper-stylized masterpiece all about 5 Spider-People coming together for the greater good. So grab a coldie and lets be kids again while we go over what will for sure be a legendary film. As the saying goes… With great beer comes great drinkability!

Speaking of, <a href=“https://www.division23brewing.com”>Division 23</a> sent us a Marzen that was crushable but zany enough to accompany this movie. Check them out in their tucked away paradise if you’re ever out in San Diego!

Ep40 – Creed 2

It’s time to bust those boxing gloves out of the attic and start hitting the bag again as we dive into yet another film in the Rocky universe. Bring a beverage though, as we have some choice things to say about this unnecessary sequel and we don’t want you to throw in the towel.

The beer for this episode was a mind blowing dream in a can: <a href=“https://abnormalbeer.co”>Abnormal Beer Co’s</a> Hazy Dreams – an otherworldly hazy IPA.

Ep38 – Overlord

A small ragtag group goes up against insurmountable odds as they discover an evil secret that… blah blah blah yada yada yada… Yeah you’ve heard this a million times before. Go get your beverage and your best Nazi-Zombie slaying gear, and let’s chat about Overlord.

The beverage for this episode is an ode to how we like to support local businesses every chance we get, which is why we went to our good friends

<a href=“https://www.pariahbrewingco.com”>Pariah Brewing</a>for their amazing #SupportLocal IPA.

Ep37 – Bohemian Rhapsody

Tonight, we’re gonna have ourselves a good time!
Not even the notoriously troubled production history of the anticipated Queen bio-pic could keep us away. So come along, fire your director, pop in your teeth prosthetics, grab a coldie, and crank this one to 11!
We continued to whittle our Mason Ale Works: “http://www.masonaleworks.com” stash down with 2 delicious brews: Will Time – a belgian style White Ale, and Jambi – a W.C. style IPA.
