Episode 67 – Mike’s Iowa beers

This is episode 67. Mike Sciandra is here. And he brought beers from Iowa to kick off our month of Iowa beers. Who knew Iowa could provide beers for an entire month? Not this guy…

In this episode, we take an analytical dive into our beer ratings. Then we take some sort of dive into Fyre Festival. Wiping asses. Smelling underwear. And a deep philosophical debate into the merits of “Just Do It.” All while drinking beers from SingleSpeed, Confluence, NoCoast and Firetrucker.

Episode 65 – Coors Banquet and Vis Major

Episode 65 with Mike Schaefer. He’s drinking this time. Well….kind of. He’s drinking Coors Banquet. 

In this episode, Connor and Mike get geeky about baseball. Not until after Connor freaks out about Creighton blowing the game against Marquette. Mike tells us about his experiences with topless girls in Cancun and the drugs he didn’t take in New Mexico. There’s also an idea to expand the 3BL Media Empire with something called “The Chain Gang.” All while drinking Coors Banquet and enjoying beers from Vis Major.

Episode 64 – Sponsored by Renegade Brewing (also with other beers)

Episode 64. The one sponsored by Renegade Brewing. Can you get Renegade in Nebraska? Not anymore! Is it really damned delicious? You bet it is!

Our Executive Producer Shane (@Weeman402) came by. And then @MikeSciandra came by. And then @nilly21 came by. It was a party. Everyone wants some of Renegade’s delicious beers! We talked about Joan Callamezzo. We talked about Kanye. We talked about small towns. And we drank an incredible Barrel Aged Coffee and Maple Pancakes Porter from Renegade, and less good beers from Cambridge Brewing Company and Shiner.

Episode 63 – “7 Every 7” meets “Recovery 9s”

What do you do when two conflicting rules collide? You buy a big beer, you buy a little beer, and you throw everything else out the window. 

In this episode, we go to barbecue school with @DelltheDude. We learn what a “Bacon Explosion” is (eventually). More debates about KC BBQ, but it’s all trumped by the grub at Chester’s Grocery near Ft. Benning. Then…we follow little Jimmy to Sex Island. Little Jimmy will never be the same. We do all that while drinking Zipline Brewing’s The Stout and Czech Dark Lager.

Episode 61 – Renegade Brewing, part 2

Dear every brewery,
Do you want to be cool? Then be like Renegade Brewing. Give us some beers to drink and talk about.
Sincerely,
3BL

In episode 61, we bring in Josh Peterson from the Omaha radio scene. As you might expect from a radio guy, he has some things to say. We talk about green text people vs blue text people. We talk about Connor’s disturbing use of LMAO in tweets. We take a LONG time to talk s*** on other media members (specifcally Chris Basnett). Brett Kane called in while playing Red Dead Redemption. And we drank Renegade Brewing’s beers, which were better than last week’s Renegade Brewing beers.

Episode 60 – Renegade Brewing, part 1

Episode 60 with Jack Mitchell and half of the beers provided to us by Denver’s Renegade Brewing. Look at the picture. They’re very pretty.

In this episode, we yell about pizza (again). We break the red-clad rules. Jack raps with Run DMC, which fulfills today’s part of the “26 Days of Jack”. We all agree that the “pay-it-forward” chains at Starbucks are stupid. But Axe Body Spray? Not stupid. All while drinking some alcohol-laden gifts from Renegade Brewing.

Episode 59 – Saro Cider sampler

It finally happened. Connor’s gone. Connor’s replacement backed out. So…Jake Sorensen makes his debut appearance on this podcast. We swore it wouldn’t happen, but here we are. Also…Lanny Holstein!

In this episode, Lanny tries to school us about the English language. And logical fallacies. Turns out, he works closely with a ‘flat-earther.’ We talk about wine, concerts, mouth herpes, and masculine toilets. Then Jake gets pretty heated about bear droppings and moose. All while enjoying four offerings from Saro Cider. 

(We know it’s not beer. We don’t care.)

Episode 58 – Cosmic Eye, Boiler and Dogfish Head

Episode 58. We welcome back our good friend, Doug. Why is he our good friend? Partially because of his winning personality. And partially because he brought a couple of crowlers to share.

In this episode, Connor and Doug explain Red Dead Redemption to Mark. Then a guy called to ask Connor about his Bridgestone tires. Spoiler alert….Connor is very satisfied with how the tires look. We discussed local taproom experiences. We talked about something called mukbang and other weird Youtube things. And we drank some hoppy beers from Cosmic Eye, Boiler and Dogfish Head.

Episode 57 – Experimental IPA and Snow Beast

Episode 57. We welcome back a couple of old friends in Brett Kane and Kinkaider’s Snow Beast. And we welcome in a brand new friend…Upslope’s Experimental IPA. 

In this episode, we discuss the state of comedy in a post-comedy worlld. That leads to talk about defiling a bag of popcorn. The timeline there is a little rusty. Rating female celebrities based on looks. Rating male celebrities based on looks. Also…video games, Mr Feeny, and “Who would you kill?”

Episode 56 – 7Every7 x OchoCrowlers

It’s episode 56. 56 is Robin Washut’s favorite number. And that is why we waited this long to have Robin Washut on. And what a night to make a debut appearance. All of the rules get tested tonight!

In this episode of Three Bears Later, we talk about underwear. We talk about poopy diapers. We talk about doctor’s visits and how often a person really needs to go. Connor and Robin discuss concerts while Mark watches baseball. And we drink some delicious beers from Farnam House, White Elm and Zipline (with bonus beers from Toppling Goliath and Evil Twin).

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.

Episode 48 – Happy birthday to us

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.
