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. 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. 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.

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.

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. 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!

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. And…I don’t know…probably some more stuff. IT”S OUR BIRTHDAY! We’re a year old. Let’s drink to us with some Prairie Aritisan Ales, White Elm Brewing and Almanac Beer Co.
Read More Episode 48 – Happy birthday to us
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, […]

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 with Chris Whitney. He used to talk into microphones, but now he doesn’t, so let’s see how this goes!
Read More Episode 45 – Pompeii and KBS
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. 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.

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.
Read More Episode 43 – Grip It & Sip It and Blood Orange Shandy.
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.
Read More Episode 41 – We Back
A milestone episode, our 40th as a podcast. And our first with one of the host’s missing. No Connor, just Mark and Michael Snow. And some crowlers.
In this episode, we dive deep into Michael’s world as a bartender. We look at Instagram influencers, eBay, and the “Dick of Death.” We talked about the merits of being single, and we drank some beer out of oversized cans from Nebraska Brewing, Fernson Brewing, and First Street Brewing.

Episode 39 comes to you live from one of Priceline’s best reviewed hotels in the city of Kearney…the EconoLodge!
In this episode, we detail every second of our business trip to the Tri-Cities. We discuss cannibalism. We realize that Mark has never seen anything that Woody Harrelson has been in, and that Connor has never seen Now You See Me, despite what others might say. All while drinking Hopstreaker Pale Ale from Kros Strain Brewing.
Read More Episode 39 – Kros Strain Hopstreaking at the Kearney Econo Lodge

In this episode, we dig into the new millennials, those damn Gen Z-ers. We discuss how to rob a bank. We decide whether songs are by Weezer or not by Weezer. And we played a lot of things off of our phones into our microphones. All while drinking a couple of collaborative IPAs from Zipline and Boulevard.
Read More Episode 38 – Linkin’ Up & Gettin’ Down
Have you ever wondered to yourself, “Self, I wonder what Mark and Connor have in their beer fridges at home right now?” We figured you probably had. So, we decided to answer that question by bringing stuff we had on hand! This had nothing to do with not being able to decide whose turn it was to buy beer.
In episode 37, we did the unthinkable. We went without a guest. And you know what? It didn’t suck! We talked politics and civic duties. We talked about Migos and gambling and youths. Chicken. Burgers. Sperm donors. Have it your way. And we drank some delicious beers from White Elm and Destihl.

When Matt’s ancestor’s crossed through Ellis Island, they handed the immigration officials a six-pack of delicious brews from the mother land. And thus, the FreeBeer surname was born.
In this Episode, Dr. Matt brought us beer. And it was AWESOME! We asked him lots of questions about our medical problems. We talked about raging bulls and see-saws at bars. We discussed the merits of living at home vs the freedom of NOT living at home. Chuck E Cheese. Brewing Beer. And more medical issues for Dr. Matt. All while drink beers from Bell’s, Deschutes, and Belguim’s Br. Verhaeghe (???).
