The Beer Report show

The Beer Report

Summary: Welcome to the Beer Report! If you are looking for another NPR style beer tasting show... You are probably going to be disappointed. Who are we kidding? There are about 20 podcasts that sniff, swallow, twaddle and judge beer like fine wine. We are not one of those! We do drink a lot of good beer. We even talk about it... Sometimes we even know what we are talking about! On a real good show, we drink some shit beer! The Beer Report is about "confrontation" as co-host CHUD would say... The beer is the catalyst to everything else that is created for the show. Comedy, vulgarity, offensive points of view abound ahead! Listen at your own risk!

 TBR – One for the Road – Groucho and PJ in Dallas | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:00:01

Possibly the most frequent guest on the TBR is our superfan PJ.  He is nearly acquired the title as guest-host!  Its fine by us… He does a great job holding up this episode. Groucho, as usual, is running around somewhere in the United States and finds out that PJ is close by and wants to do a show. Recorded in the Dallas Airport Hyatt lobby bar… It doesn’t get much better than that!  Does it?  Groucho is thinking of doing a few episodes with folks with his remote setup, and will call those “One for the Road”.  Look for more episodes like this in the future.

 DATM – Ferris Buellers Day Off | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:00:01

This is a fun one…  Groucho gets to sit in with Dustin and Daryl for another Drunk at the Movies.  This time…  We watch the classic John Hughes movie that everyone in America can probably quote at some point.  Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Let it be said upfront…  Groucho did get a little rough with the Peoria Beer Nerds secret society.  At one point…  We all broke down.  Kinda like Cameron’s relationship with his father. Years ago…  The Beer Report used to apologize for unruly statements or flippant remarks on previous shows…  I am going to go ahead and apologize to Rothgar.  I was rude and rowdy for effect and I was not trying to be mean to him.  I love that guy!  It was a cheap shot at sensationalism.  I’m sorry… It was the beer talking!  The other stuff I said…  Hmmmmm…  Felt pretty honest! Groucho From Drunken Lullabies: The Voice is back on the couch for his favorite movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Joining him are returning guests Daryl & Groucho. We enjoy some great craft beers during the movie, and encourage you to do the same. So grab some beer, lick your palms, and make sure to stop and look around for a second.

  What do you get when you have three guys gather around for a classic Weird Al movie?  You get Drunken Lullabies – Drunk at the Movies – UHF! Groucho sits in with Dustin “The Voice” and Daryl “The Broadcaster” to watch UHF and drink a bunch of craft beers! Dustin has been doing a bunch of these psuedo-MST3K podcasts and they are a ton of fun to listen to if you know the movie…  Also a ton of fun if you are participating!  Give his other episodes a listen. Getting this movie was no coincidence.  I was begging to do UHF.  This movie has become a classic in my house and its one of the few DVD’s that I actually own.  My son uses it as a lithmus test to shake out who he should be friends with.  Its also become a roadmap to what are the essential 80’s movies that he should watch.  If Al parodied it…  We must watch!  Well, except for Ghandi…  We can save that one for a couple years out. Cue up a copy of UHF and enjoy! G PS… My Victoria Jackson love was a real thing back in the 80’s!

Here is a gem from the end of last year.  Groucho brought back a couple “Crowlers” from the Stone World Brewing Headquarters in Escondido California last fall.  We drank these beers very quickly after arrival back to Central Illinois .  This is the second show from that night… We got a little rocked and you can tell by the end of this one!

 TBR 89 – Post Election Brews | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:37:32

We had a beer sent to us… And we drank it. Corporate Shills?  Not us.  This is one of those rare times when we try out a beer that has been sent to Beer Report Studios.  It sounded interesting and was close enough to justify a little “pimping” by the show.  You should be able to find Linalool at any liquor depot in the Northwoods of the upper Midwest.  It appears to be readily available.  Enjoy. As the picture implies… Politics are a key subject to this show.  But, you all should be thanking Groucho for the “post” editing.  We clocked in a show that was 70 minutes before the chopping began.  The politics of the minute were not compelling enough to listen to for me… So I sure as shit was not going to lay that on you!  Your welcome!  Just know this.  We are both Independents and hope that both sides can work together to get something done in this country! Beers on the show:  Pearl Street Brewery Linalool, 10 Barrell Brewing Company JOE IPA, St Peters English Porter. On the show: Why Groucho does not shill.
