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!

Its that special time of the year… And we haven’t produced squat… So, why not pull out this classic from the TBR vault. Groucho and CHUD talking about Ever-clear Channel Christmas parties, strip clubs and Dean Martin singing a classic.  (Not Baby its cold outside.)

    We are back!  Groucho, The Voice and Daryl are sitting down and finishing the John Hughes/Molly Ringwald trilogy that started with 16 Candles.

 TBR 95 – Day Drinking | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:00:01

I am not sure if we have done this in eons… Had a few beers during daylight hours and recorded. Consider this a fluke event!

 Drunk at the Movies – The Breakfast Club | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:00:01

The “Dream Team” is back!  Groucho, The Voice and Dr. Rusty drink a few brews during the South Pekin fireworks and watch the John Hughes classic “The Breakfast Club”. Along the way… Groucho confesses his love to those Molly Ringwald lips…  Even more so than Victoria Jackson’s from UHF. The Voice is back on the couch with The Dream Team: Groucho & Dr Rusty from the new podcast Throwing Wrenches. Join us as we drink some craft beers, watch the film, and talk all about a variety of topics. Of course, we encourage you to do the same, especially with some beer from our sponsor Bearded Owl Brewing. So grab some beer, describe the ruckus, raid Barry Manilow’s wardrobe, crash thru a ceiling, and make me a turkey pot pie.

 TBR 94 – The Near Beer Report | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:49:52

Don’t count us out!  Groucho and CHUD find a bit of time to sit down and knock out a quick, one beer show.   Can we call it a one beer show when the brew in question is a “Near Beer”? It was also a chance for us to talk Bourdain.  We have been blown away by the suicide of Anthony Bourdain and it still eats at us that a guy that we all looked up to and idolized would throw it all away.  CHUD and Groucho talk it over and try to make some sense of it.. But also pay tribute to what is his legacy. Beer on the show:  Bravus IPA On the show: New equipment for recording? Auto racing in Florida. Groucho tries to get CHUD to identify that the beer is missing alcohol!!!! A little love for the “Near Beer” Anthony Bourdain and how his influence led to shows like ours. Guy thing? Hemmingway comparison? New place in Pekin?  Long overdue!  West Dublin Pub. Love for Maquets Railhouse. Bloomington is pissing CHUD off! So much brewery action in Bloomington Normal!!!  Keg Grove… Little Beaver…  White Oaks.  My God Central Illinois.  Drink some local beer…  Somethings going to bust and dont realize the embarrassment of riches you have right now. Kemp’s Upper Tap love!  If your near Lexington… Get there! CHUD hates midwest resturant service! Managers!!!  Stop expediting! Flood warning! Bourdain might have liked this show???  lol.  The “what-if’s” are very plausable! Groucho is not cleaning the turkey! Thanks for listening!  Lets hope its a shorter span before the next show! Beer on the show provided by PJ…  The man…  The myth…  The legend.   Thanks for the brew!

 Drunk at the Movies – Sixteen Candles | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:34:05

We are back at it… Groucho, Dustin and Daryl… The self proclaimed, DATM “Dream Team” sit down on the couch and watch another John Hughes classic…  16 Candles.   This episode is tame compared to the last time we sat down together…  No Beer Nerd slander for this crew anymore.  Well, unless its warranted…   See us at Weird Science. Is it weird for a 40 year old man to pine for a 16 year old Molly Ringwald?  Asking for a friend. From the Drunk at the Movies page: The Voice is back on the couch with the self proclaimed DATM Dream Team (Daryl & Groucho from The Beer Report) for another fun filled episode. Listen along as we watch this John Hughes classic while we enjoy some great craft beers. Of course, we encourage you to do the same, especially from Iron Spike Brewing Company.

 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. Beers on the show:  Revolver Iron Head IPA, 4 corners Local Buzz, Rahr and Sons Texas Red Amber, Lakewood Temptress Imperial Milk Stout.  All Dallas based beers… All delicious. On the show: Brazilian Steakhouse eating strategies. Putting Fish in your jacket? PJ’s lecture on these stupid Texas u-turns! The Replublic of Texas! Stow and go???  Really PJ? Groucho jacked the order of the stops. TRAVEL! Scotts Cheap Flights?  PJ’s hookup. Gin? Oingo Boingo talk. We get long on this one…  But… Thats what bar hopping does to you!  

 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!
