So, you’re sick of scoring your craft beer from friends? Really not into hanging out at some weird dude’s house for a few hours wondering if he’s going to provide those sweet, sweet brews or turn you into a skin tuxedo? Totally over wondering about the freshness of those double IPA whales your friends swear are “Fresh as fuck”? Well, you’re in the right place.

Welcome to 2018! We ring in the new year with a very special one on one episode with a friend and fan of the show from Minneapolis. Sadly, Sam is not a scheduling wizard, so Pete was not able to attend, but our Guest Pyrate Mike was perfectly able to carry the show in his absence. Dude’s traveled many places and drank many beers and whiskeys, so we talk about that and how great Nic Cage is. Rate your Nic Cage movies to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Man, we did up GABF for 2017 and it was an intense weekend. Sam gathered the crew who came and helped shoot video, take pictures and drink the beers to go back through what we saw, smelled and drank. Relive the whirlwind that was us Making America Great American Beer Fest Again, or MAGABFA. We’ll make you proud to know us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
THIS WEEK IN BEER NEWS: Someone summarized all the shit different brewery people do, someone else did a study on how much more beer people drink to start the NFL season, someone at Sixpoint decided it was time to be more social and someone in Texas decided to introduce another shitty bill into legislation. Afterward, we peek into the future and Sam slams some coffee stout from New Image Brewing. Come for the news, stay for the Chug.

If the title hasn’t already told you, we paired up with the best possible podcast to pair with a beer podcast: a pizza podcast. We spent some time with Megan and Paul of the Denver Pizza Podcast to talk about what just about anyone will acknowledge is the best pairing with beer. So much is covered. Grab a slice and crack a brew. Eat pizza with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
