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!

If you are looking for another NPR style beer tasting podcast... 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 are also not one of those shows filled with fraternity rejects who talk all over each other and sound like they were recorded in their Mom's basement. Your hosts, Groucho and CHUD, do drink a lot of good beer. They even talk about it... Sometimes they even know what we are talking about! That really only happens when Kevin comes on from the Harvest Cafe in Delavan. He's got the current beer smarts! The beer is the catalyst to all points and conversation made on the show. Conversation noodles have offended everyone from Brazilians, camaro drivers and Jim Koch of Sam Adams. Comedy, vulgarity, offensive points of view abound ahead! Enter at your own risk!
