Join us on a quest for the fastest pings and dankest hops this side of Silicon Valley, cheers!

Episode 46: I Can Smell the Sarcasm From Here (Give Thanks - Alvarado Street Brewery)

Internet Beer Users

Bonus Episode - Mockeries - Monkish
Here it is: our never before heard lost episode! We recorded this Tuesday, May 29 and we give our predictions for the NBA Finals and announcements for WWDC 2018. Given that Apple’s iPhone event is tomorrow, September 12, it’s very interesting, and super funny, to listen to our thoughts from back in May. We hope everyone enjoys this bonus episode and thank you again for your support! This episode's show beer is Mockeries by Monkish Brewing. Producer’s note: This is a rough version of the episode. As you will see, there is quite a bit of pre-show talk and I left out intro and outro theme music just to give our loyal listeners what it sounds like when we actually record.
