Ep74 – The Tax Collector

Oh boy. Where to even begin with this turd of a movie. How about… It’s soooooo bad that we forgot to rate it. Seriously. The one thing we should be doing every single episode, and we were so off balance from the stink of this terrible film (if you want to call it that) that we forgot the format of our own show. So I guess that’s a spoiler? But hey, it’s made by the guy that made “Bright” and “Suicide Squad” so maybe you shouldn’t be too surprised.

Thank the old gods and the new for beer though! The only saving grace that got us through this one is the holy blessing that is Societe’s Good of the Public , a refreshing IPA that was literally made to be enjoyed in nature. Trust on this one, folks: You’re gonna need a coldie or 4 for the one, so grab it, and let’s do this thing!

Reviews, Brews, & Friends: Back To The Future

And now for something kinda different! Welcome To Reviews, Brews, & Friends: Chapter 1! With everyone locked down and safely distanced, we decided to start inviting our friends to talk about their favorite movies for a change. New, old, classic, or guilty pleasure? Anything goes as our friends pick what we get to chat about. For this episode long time friend and web master Ryan came on to talk about the classic Back To The Future and it’s lasting legacy. Shenanigans absolutely ensued on this episode – brace yourself.

But even with the new format, we drank some beer. Oh yes, we did! We all got to take part with Modern Times Orderville which is a San Diego staple that can be found in Utah. So grab a couple coldies and lets go back in time!

Ep 73 – Artemis Fowl

You know the movie pipeline is getting thin when a couple of drunks resort to reviewing a kids movie. Artemis Fowl didn’t necessarily come by choice, but it was almost like a beer-fueled destiny to be savagely ripped apart by the R&B crew. I guess that’s kind of a spoiler for this episode, but oh well! Grab a coldie or 4 because you’re going to need it while we chat about high tech faries and over-grown dwarfs that fart dirt. Yep, you read that correctly.

Ken stayed somewhat responsibly buzzed with the San Diego classic .394 Pale Ale from Alesmith Brewing. Brad on the other hand went 3 sheets to the wind with a huge bomber of Ommegang Brewing’s Bend The Knee Golden Honey Ale from their Game of Thrones line of beers that he was saving for…. reasons?

Ep 72 – The Old Guard

With the well of new movies running low, we had no choice but to come back to the dreaded Netflix Original. With a track record of only maybe 2 good movies, the odds were against us but nevertheless we pressed on. It felt like a thousand year journey, but we did it for you. We braved eternity to review The Old Guard.

You’re really going to need a beverage to get through this one, and luckily for us we had 2! Ken had the classic and one of our favorites Societe Brewing’s The Harlot a crisp Belgian Blonde Ale, while Brad went with the Belching Beaver Samba #5 a hazy IPA for a hot summer’s day.

Ep 71 – Palm Springs

If ever there was a movie that hits close to home right now, it’s Palm Springs. Most of us have been sitting around, living every day like the day before it, and the day before that. But if it was infinite, what would you do? Steal a plane? Start a bar fight with a choreographed dance-off? These questions are answered in this weeks episode all about the Hulu Original – so grab a coldie and for a few minutes let’s pretend everything doesn’t just utterly suck.

Speaking of coldies; 2 beverages this week! **THE CROWD GOES WILD!!** Ken gave some love to Modern Times with the classic Blazing World. Brad went with the limited release Stone Soaring Dragon IIPA, and the crowd rejoiced.

The Pandemisode

If there is a will, there is a way! After a little apocalyptic hiatus the R&B crew is back for more shenanigans! We finally figured out how to make episodes again and catch up on what TV shows and movies we’ve been watching all while taking down some delicious beverages.

Speaking of delicious beverages, we took down a couple of growlers from Nickel Beer Co of their brew Darkside of the Moonlight; a honey porter that wasn’t sweet, but rocked a 10.2% ABV to set us right. Join us, catch up, we know you ain’t got anything better to do! Kidding, kidding… keep up the yoga and jogging! You look fantastic!
