146 – WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Like the local news, BREWFONTAINE is on our side with some RENEGADE’S PANCAKES MAPLE PORTER and some SOUTHERN TIER SALTED CARAMEL IMPERIAL STOUT paired with our MAN O’ WAR RUINATION WARHORSE*. What a fine time to be alive.

*The link sends you offsite to a review waaaay better than ours.

RIP Roy Halladay, Wayne Winters finds a kidney, Chevy’s C/10, Cassettes are back, Maduro likes empanadas, a bunch of sports crap, and our top 5 new nicknames for the professional football club in Washington, D.C.

 

145 – ALWAYS BE CLOSING

Our friends at BREWFONTAINE pulled out some DOUBLE BASTARD for our LA AROMA DE CUBA MI AMOR RESERVA. Our arrogance far surpassed our worth, and we enjoyed a fine pairing.

The Sam Adams Utopias, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, Audible’s “Take me to the good part”, Amber Schmunk, Terrion Pouncy, Paul Manafort, Donna Brazile, the Astros, CFP rankings, Josh Gordon reinstated, NFL trade deadline, pickems, and our top 5 actor cameos in a movie.

144 – 150 JOULES TO THE SQUEEZEBOX

We are revisiting the A TURRENT TRIPLE PLAY PURO MADURO, a tasty treat paired with the SOUTHERN TIER PUMKING thanks to our friends at BREWFONTAINE, but the Carnitas Mexican Pasta that Froho made was elevated with some PRAIRIE ARTISAN ALES BOMB! Go get ’em kids.

RIP  Robert Guillaume, RIP Fats Domino, Woody Harrelson quits weed, Harvey Weinstein quits rape, the dossier, Uranium One, Iditarod dog’s are using, Tal Flicker wins Judo gold, college football, NFL, pickems, and our top 5 songs from the 1950’s.

143 – IN THE WOODS

The DIESEL UNCUT and some BELL’S BREWERY KALAMAZOO STOUT make for a fine pairing from our friends at BREWFONTAINE.

Playboy’s new playmate of the month, Chelsea Handler “quits”, Malcolm Applegate takes a walk in the woods, Wayne Winters takes a walk in Utah, George W takes a swipe at Trump, Lowest jobless claims since ’73, MLB Playoffs, NHL playoff format, NBA season tips off, CFB, NFL, pickems, and our top 5 sings about the weather.

142 – TONGUE TIED AND TWISTED

We couldn’t make it to BREWFONTAINE, so we were on our own for the pairing. The WICKED INDIE from EAST INDIA TRADING COMPANY and some FOUR ROSES SMALL BATCH.

The Rock roasts Tyrese’s album, the Last Jedi trailer, Dove’s advertising fail, more Weinstein grossness, MLB playoffs, NFL week 5, pickems, and our top 5 children’s books.

141 – TEXTO GRANDE

 La caguama estuvo buenísima. The LUCHADOR EL GRINGO CHIN MUSIC went well with the DAYTON BEER COMPANY’S FESTBIER, and we had some amazing dry hopped JALLE BERRY at half time.

RIP Tom Petty, Danny Lee Bettcher breaks a record, finger vein payment, Blade Runner 2049, Harvey Weinstein sucks, hockey season starts, MLB playoffs, LSU gets trolled, NFL week 4, pickems, and our top 5 comics (alive or dead) we would like to see live.

140 – SETHINA?

Our friends at BREWFONTAINE paired the disappointing MACANUDO INSPIRADO WHITE with the fantastic MOELLER BARN OKTOBERFEST MARZEN. Hopefully, that’s the last Macanudo I ever smoke.

RIP Hugh Hefner, Uromys Vika, Spenser Rapone, a watery trip to Walmart, Dyson making electric cars, Hurricane Maria, NCAA basketball shenanigans, NBS stuff, NFL stuff, pickems, and our top 5 movies we haven’t seen.

139 – LOOSE AND GREASY

With the RAMON BUESO GENESIS THE PROJECT burning merrily along, we had some 35K by AGAINST THE GRAIN, and thanks to the amazing folks at BREWFONTAINE, we finished very strong with some DOGFISH HEAD OAK-AGED VANILLA WORLDWIDE STOUT.

RIP Harry Dean Stanton and Jake LaMotta, Sammy The Bull, more Terminators, the Dadbag, the Mad Pooper, the Fatberg, and the Shark. Andre Ward retires, Kevin Durant tweets nonsense, the Buckeyes, the lackluster NFL, Draft Kings, Pickems, and our top 5 products that were bad ideas.

138 – IT LOOKS GOOD ON PAPER

The DIESEL WICKED was a stout little fellah, but it was better with beer. Thanks to BREWFONTAINE, we started off with some JACKIE O’S CELLAR CUVÉE, a stellar beer that overpowered the cigar, NEW HOLLAND’S BALTIC ANOMALY paired with it very well, and our opinions are split on the ALESMITH THAI SPEEDWAY STOUT.  I think it elevated the cigar, turning it into a pairing that demanded attention and study, while the Beilski was wrong.

RIP Frank Vincent, giving our freedoms to the government and our souls to the devil, lots of sportsy stuff, and our top 5 songs played in sports arenas. . .

137 – WHERE YOU GOING NEXT, IRMA?

With a CAMACHO NICARAGUAN RUM BARREL-AGED in our hand, and a G’SUFFA! from FAT HEAD’s BREWERY, we went back to BREWFONTAINE after a long absence, and you should too…

Martin Skrelli doesn’t need any money, a Taco Bell in Cleveland, Angela Hircock is consistent, the puke-proof shoe, the fate of Cassini, college football, NFL, other sportsy stuff, and our top 5 songs about tragedies.
