Ep 60 – Joker / Terminator

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls around the world! We’ve got quite the episode for you as we cover 2 movies for the price of one episode! Well… They’re free… so… Anyway!

First up we cover the smash hit Joker, a movie about a director that wishes he directed Taxi Driver -SO BAD- but just so happens to have a wonderful cast and crew to help him not look like a complete dink. We wrap up with Terminator: Dark Fate. Or as we’ve been calling it around these parts “T2.5”; a film staring Linda “Get Off My Lawn” Hamilton. Giggle while you make your way to the fridge for a coldie, because you’re a robot with feelings now. Yes, that sentence doesn’t make sense now, but it will when you listen to the episode.

The beverage for this episode is the Ballast Point Lager. It has 99 calories! Helps us keep our girlish figures!

Recap Vol.4

We missed a few movies this summer, y’all. We apologize, but in the wise words of a certain Goldblum character: Life sometimes interrupts your plans to drink beer and chat movies. Apology accepted? Great! In Recap Vol.4 we cover the kaiju extravaganza Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the wave of death that is John Wick Chapter 3. Grab a coldie, and lets talk about the mess that is Godzilla, and how Mr Wick can turn anything into a weapon. He kills a guy with a book. Seriously. A BOOK. How can you not watch that movie?

The beverage for this episode is an Oktoberfest style lager made by <a href=“http://www.threeweavers.la”>Three Weavers Brewing</a>.  The non-IPA streak is picking up steam, so if you have any more fall / Oktoberfest style beers to recommend, hit us up here or on any of the social medias!

Ep59 – Ad Astra

It’s not quite 2001, and it’s not quote Apocalypse Now, but somewhere in the middle lies Brad Pitt journeying to Neptune to sort his daddy issues out. That’s right, we saw Ad Astra and all it’s voice-over glory. Grad a coldie, and join us in the dark embrace of space while we chat about space monkeys. Seriously.

The beer for this episode comes from one of our favorites <a href=“http://www.fallbrewingcompany.com”>Fall Brewing</a> with their incredibly sessional amber lager Devil’s Right Hand. we recommend all of their beers really, but this one hit the spot!

Ep58 – It Chapter Two

We here at Reviews & Brews have a special place for IT in our hearts. Our love goes beyond the book, and despite it’s cheesy terrible-ness the 1990 mini-series, but the 2017 Andy Muschietti directed smash hit was our very first episode. So I guess you could say we had some serious hopes that Chapter Two would make us float. Does it though? Come on down with a coldie, and you’ll float, too!

The beverage for this episode is a mosaic hopped wonder pilsner called “Brother In Lager” from our friends at  <a href=“https://abnormalbeer.co”>Abnormal Beer Co</a>. Abnormal makes some seriously great beer, so check them out!

Ep57 – Ready Or Not

Ahhhhh aren’t in-laws the best? If it’s not an overzealous mother in law wearing a wedding dress on your wedding day, it’s an entire family trying to kill you thanks to a deal they made with the devil. If there is anything we learned this week it’s if you’ve got new family, don’t agree to a game of hide and seek with them. Ready or not, here we come – with beer!

Speaking of, we went with our good friends <a href=“http://latitude33brewing.com”>Latitude 33 Brewing</a> since we missed them, and enjoyed a coconut coffee porter by the name of Native Trails. Gotta admit, it’s nice not having an IPA 2 episodes in a row!

Ep55 – Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

After being on the controversial book list for 3 decades and still running, some genius thought it was a good idea to make it a movie! That genius happens to be one of our favorites, Guillermo Del Toro and his pal André Øvredal. Come with us and grab a coldie as we discuss the books that haunted our childhood now turned into full on cinematic horror made for a new generation.
The beverage for this episode is a sneak peek called ‘pHazed And Confused’, a hazy IPA from our pal Jim McKeever and his newly made 8Five8 Brewing Company.

Ep54 – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

It’s new Quentin Tarantino season, folks! As one of our favorite film makers puts his (possibly) second to last work of art out, we celebrate by diving deep into the 3 hour joyride that is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Fair warning, this one is spoiler filled, so if you haven’t seen it don’t say we didn’t warn you!

The beverage for this episode is Pool Party Haze, made by <a href=“http://novobrazilbrewing.com/beers”>Novo Brazil Brewing</a> a nice hazy IPA with some pretty wild can art. Check them out!

Ep 53 – Spider-Man: Far From Home

Just like Peter Parker a little vacation was needed; but now we’re back with web shooters and Peter Tingles at the ready! We swing into Spider-Man: Far From Home with a couple of delightful brews from <a href=“https://coronadobrewing.com”>Coronado Brewing</a> and talk about some pretty spoilers stuff. Be warned!

Ep52 – Detective Pikachu

Where to even begin with this one… Maybe with “we tried”? How do you review a movie that can’t really be reviewed? Detective Pikachu is hands down one of the weirdest movies we’ve ever seen, so we brought in some help: Master Brewer Jim McKeever. We try to explain to Jim what we experienced, and he just gave us more of his delightful beer and told us some great stories about his time in the film industry. Fair warning, we probably talk more about anything else than the indescribable movie, so consider yourself warned before you think of us as Pokémon Masters!

Ep51 – Avengers: Endgame

Not even 10 years, 22 movies, and 1.2 billion dollars worldwide could prepare you for this episode! We’re gonna get info Avengers: Endgame, and for the love of god if you don’t have any common sense let’s be clear here: We’re gonna get spoilery. Literally everything to spoil, we talk about it. No joke, Bruce Willis was dead the WHOLE time. Consider yourself warned!

The beverage we were handed down from on high is worthy of Thor; a delightful west coast IPA called Paddle Battle from our friends at Shred. We will have more from these fine gentlemen soon, so keep an eye out for these wizards of beer!
