Episode 55 – Sampleven with Simba

According to the rules, we’re supposed to drink a variety of beers every 11th episode. But, we do that every time now. So…I guess this is just like every other episode and there’s nothing particularly special about it. Why are you even here?

In this episode, we chat with our old day-job friend, Mike Welch. He’s a big Hollywood star now, and he owes 100% of his success to the power of Google! Simba’s back for a third appearance, we discuss his beard, haunted houses, Disney World and Florida in general, and beer. A good amount of beer talk, while drinking some offerings from Sam Adams and Cosmic Eye.

Episode 54 – Road trip to Michigan

Episode 54. I really thought the computer was gonna eat this episode. It would become “the lost episode”. People would speak of it in hushed, reverent voices. Now, just regular ol’ voices.

In this episode, Darion brought us beers he picked up on his road trip to Michigan. We hit Iowa, we hit Indiana, and we hit the beautiful mitten that is Michigan. We talk about the time Darion witnessed a murder. We discover that Connor is a jackass on the road, and Mark is a little bitch. We go through our spam folders. And we have a good beer night courtesy of Three Floyds, New Holland and Big Grove.

Episode 53 – Beef jerky with Brett

Episode 53. The beer: not great. The jerky: incredible. The podcast: Better than average. Brett Baker is here. He vowed to not kill us this time. It was very charitable of him.

In this episode, we dug in to the world of television news. And minor league baseball. We talked about Connor’s career trajectory and how it has affected his personal life. Kids in Florida can’t get grades lower than 50%, even if they don’t do an assignment at all. The Office. Breakfast Club. Manifest. Soccer. And beers from Kinkaider, Infusion, and Lucky Bucket.

Episode 52 – So this is pregaming…

Connor and Mark are all alone in this episode. So, they started drinking early. At some point, they turned on the microphones.

We really don’t know if this episode is good or not. For the first time in the history of the 3BL media empire, we went back and edited something out. We talked about Connor’s hair. We talked about Wendy’s NOT serving fingers in their chili. And we talked about beer. Local beer. Great American Beer. Lots of beer. All while drinking beer from White Elm and Clown Shoes.

Episode 51 – B17 Bombers (and other such vessels)

Have you all recovered from last week’s mindf*** of an episode? Great! Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Tonight, out beer rules resulted in a LOT of drinks showing up at the 3BL studios. Also, Mike Sciandra is here! We talk about witches and crystals and spells and such. We decided that we are officially pro-wiccan. And pro-gay, in case that matters to you.  But anti-government funded healthcare. We discuss the weirdest place we’ve cracked open a beer (spoiler: mid-sex is the winner). We talk about muppet love, presidential love, beer love, and more. All while drinking large vesseled beers from Zipline, Kros Strain and Blue Blood.

Episode 50 – Oktoberfests and the real story behind @DryHuskerFrog

Episode 50. That’s a good number, but there’s no time to celebrate. We have to put on our investigative journalist hats while drinking a style of beer that was literally created with the sole intention of celebrating.

In this episode, we welcome in a pair of guests. Stuart and John. You may know them as @Cubskers21 and @FakeKevinKugler. And they have a story to tell about a man named “Trey”. You may know him as @DryHuskerFrog. Or maybe as Ken. Or perhaps as DiggerDog. A story of life, death, lies, deceit, compassion, betrayal, and more. Also, we drink Oktoberfests and eat salsa. Enjoy!

Episode 49 – 7 Every 7 (and nachos)

For episode 49, we decided to add a crunchable element to our drinking podcast. Say hello to Nick from the Muchachos food truck!

In this episode, we mostly just talked about food. BBQ. Donuts. Pizza. Cupcakes. Tacos. Nachos. Burgers. Pie. All the ways you can use hatch chilies. You know, all the foods. We also talk about credit card points, deals, food truck life, and some breaking news from Muchachos! All while enjoying beers that are 7% (or nearly 7%) abv by Dogfish Head and Boulder Brewing.

It’s our party, and we’ll cry if we want to. Turns out, we don’t want to. Hey look, beer!

In this episode, David Frickin’ Wallace calls in to ask for a t-shirt. We talk about the difference between succession and secession. We lament the end of smut on HBO.

Episode 47 – Furley’s Beers

I know we’re a craft beer podcast (kind of). And I know these aren’t our usual beers. But Adam Furley brought these beers, and gosh darn it, it was fun! In this episode, Furls just kind of took over. Leo DiCaprio, the Avengers, porn stars, man-scaping, nothing is off limits. Also, advice for escaping bears, […]

Episode 46 – Colorado Beers

For episode 46, we drank some great beers from the square state to the left. Not Wyoming, the other one. Yeah, that one. Josh from Triple B Printing is here!

In this episode, we eventually talked about our first erections. But you’re gonna have to suffer through some other stuff to get there. We talked about Colorado. We dissected diet pops. Connor listed all the world series winners from this millenium, for some reason. But get through all of that, and you’ll be rewarded with stories of our first erections. Oh, and we drank beers from New Image Brewing, Lumpy Ridge Brewing, Epic Brewing, and Rock Cut Brewing.

Episode 45 – Pompeii and KBS

Episode 45 with Chris Whitney. He used to talk into microphones, but now he doesn’t, so let’s see how this goes!
In this episode, we discuss Toppling Goliath’s misguided (?) non-compete clauses. We discovered Cameo, wihich is an awesome way in which “celebrities” and even some celebrities are making money now. Netflix Mt Rushmore. Twitter mentions from celebrities. Cute puppies. Heights. And the future of media. All while drinking beers from Toppling Goliath, Founders, and a bonus beer from Zipline.

Episode 44 – Sampleven IV: Fresh Beers

Episode 44. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we managed to follow a rule! Sampleven, part 4, featuring beers that Fresh thought looked cool on the shelf.

On this episode, we discuss grocery shopping. HANG ON, IT GETS BETTER! We also celebrities we would hook up with that would be similar to Dane Cook dating a 19 year old (what’s up, J-Lo?). We remember cell phones, we remember college, and we listen to Fresh rap. All while drinking a beers from 10 Barrel Brewing, Knee Deep Brewing, Ska Brewing and James Page Brewing.

Episode 43 – Grip It & Sip It and Blood Orange Shandy.

Well, well, well….If it isn’t Stuart. The guy who has cancelled on us more times than I have fingers finally joins the show. But…he comes on one of our (spoiler alert) worst beer nights yet.

In this episode, we remember music from our childhoods. And then everything else from our childhoods, including Connor’s gang of misfit boys, the “Cruddz.” We learn about the different things that various states hate. And we learn that we hate this beer.

Episode 42 – 7 Every 7: Sour Edition

Dr. Matty Freebeer is back to provide brews and answer our medical questions. Let kick this thing off, shall we?

In this episode, we talk about toe dexterity. We grill Dr. Matt on medical myths. We discover “fowling,” which leads to a very civil discussion about whether rolling or throwing is a more accurate way to hit a target. It’s also the first time we’ve ever paused the podcast. It’s not the first time we’ve yelled at each other. Jackie called in to talk about dogs. All while drinking sours from New Belgium and Russian River, plus a “palette cleanser” from Firestone Walker.

After an extended hiatus for Mark, and an even extendeder hiatus for Connor, 3BL is BACK. And who’s that sitting in the corner?!? It’s Michael Bruntz!

In this episode, we tag along on Connor’s spiritual (beeritual) journey that took him from New Orleans to hell to Wichita and finally back to this studio. We discover that no one in this room actually watches movies. We talk about parking tickets and the vigilantes who try to save you from them. And breasts. Or, as they will now be known, the front door to the body. All while enjoying beers from White Elm, Ommegang, and Central Standard.

Mark’s on vacation. Connor refuses to work without Mark. So this week, we hand the reins over to our good friends, Daine Patton, Doug Palmer and Fresh402. We stuck them in a basement full of beer and turned on microphones. And we’re told it was a good time.

In this episode, the fellas talk about Mark and Connor. They talk about movies. They talk about wrestling. And they talk about beer. Lots and lots of beer.
