Drunk at the Movies – National Lampoons Vacation

Groucho packs up the family “truckster” and heads over to “The Voice’s” house for another session of classic John Hughes movie viewing nonssense with his buddy Daryl.

This time we are watching the family classic with Chevy Chase… And we have to wonder if its aged well at all.  Is there a reason Chevy has not had a career over the past two decades?  We may have cracked the case in this ep…

Dustin welcomes his old friends Groucho & Daryl from Throwin Wrenches back to show which can only mean one thing; time for a John Hughes movie. We are watching a summer vacation classic, National Lampoon’s Vacation. Join us as we drink some craft beers and talk all about a variety of topics during the movie, and we encourage you to do the same, especially with some beer from our sponsor Bearded Owl Brewing. This week we enjoy the new collabo beer with Wake Brewing, Demon Cleaner. Try it today at Bearded Owl, 112 State St in Peoria, IL.

We also feature some music from our Bands of the Week, MxPx & The Dahlmanns. If you like what you hear, or if you have a movie suggestion, be sure to send feedback to drunkenlullabiespodcast@yahoo.com and Rate, Review, & Subscribe so you never miss an episode.




TBR 99 – Flatpack and Barley Wine

Oh the humanity!  Groucho and CHUD made this show a few months ago thinking they were being smug and throwing out a few new shows early into 2019…  Well, its the 8th month of 2019 and we are just getting this one out!

We suck.  We know it and dont really give a squirt.  It is what it is…  Shows when we feel like putting them out.  Actually…  Who are we fooling, CHUD has never produced more than one show…  Its all Grouchos fault!

Anywho…  We follow up Roth vs Rollins and bang out this show with a Hog Heaven Barley Wine to see if our flavor receptors have changed over the past 15 years of the show.  If you have been around long enough, you will know we bashed the crap out of this beer eons ago when we were teenagers starting the show!

Along the way we talk about being aging hipsters and what will be the next trend worth investing in?  We stumble into it… So dont get too excited watching where we wander.

Enjoy!  Thanks for listening!  We might get another one or two out this year!!!



TBR 98 – Rollins vs Roth

Sometimes you just need to stop by the Chud’s and make a show…  A surprise beer from our cousin, The Doctor, was a good enough reason for us.

On this show…

  1. Groucho is too low on the Mic…  Sorry!
  2. We solve one of the greatest mysteries of our time…  Who is Henry Rollin’s ultimate foil…  We have decided that it must be David Lee Roth.  They were both on Joe Rogan in recent history, and it drew Groucho to re-listen to Joe’s interview with Henry Rollin’s after hearing Roth.  They are the same brand of crazy…  Its awesome, inspiring and scary!
  3. There is a lot more than this… But you’ll just have to listen.

Oh, and yeah… This should be ep 97… But 97 is laying on the cutting room floor as this one is being pushed out sooner.  We will release 97 sooner than later.

Beer on the show…  Apple Cider Donut Sour IPA by Hudson Valley Brewing Company in a Crowler.  Seek it out!


DATM – Uncle Buck

Groucho, Daryl and Dustin sit down for another Drunken Lullabies movie production… Again… We are hard at work ruining your favorite John Hughes movies!  This time, its everyone’s favorite…  Uncle Buck.  Enjoy!

Dustin invites the John Hughes Dream Team back to pay tribute to John Candy as we watch Uncle Buck. Daryl & Groucho form the Throwing Wrenches Podcast are back after a 6 month absence, so there’s plenty to catch up on. Join us as we drink some craft beers and talk all about a variety of topics during the movie, and we encourage you to do the same, especially with some beer from our sponsor Bearded Owl Brewing. This week we enjoy some Who’s Your Dunkle, as well as some other assorted craft beers. Try it today at Bearded Owl, 112 State St in Peoria, IL.

We also feature some music from our Bands of the Week, Huntingtons and The Stereo. If you like what you hear, or if you have a movie suggestion, be sure to send feedback to drunkenlullabiespodcast@yahoo.com and Rate, Review, & Subscribe so you never miss an episode.

Christmas Rerun – 2010 Homeless Hoopmaster

Another fine re-run is here for your enjoyment… This time with our favorite 3rd wheel… The Homeless Hoopmaster.  This guy is a hoot.  Have fun listening to this one.  

 Just in time for the Holidays!  The Homeless Hoopmaster revisits Pekin Beer Report Studio for a friendly visit that soon turns to trying to find a decent beer from Kentucky.  Sorry Kentucky if you are reading this… But the examples of beer on the show did not serve the state well!  Which is sad, we had high hopes for the BBC brews after having some good special editions beers in years past.  But, then again, with bad beers, come lots of non-beer conversations.  Notably…  CHUD is very upset about current TSA screening processes.  So, if you want some timely conspiracy talk mixed with your beercast…  Tune in!

Segue city!!!  The longer is goes…  The more abrupt this interruptions!  Hoops has mad conversation skills!

Side note:  Hoops keeps grinding on the table with his beer!  Sorry for the pounding you hear all over the show.  Next time he gets a boom mic!  Groucho, the producer should have caught that while recording…  But Hoops is an energy that is hard to contain!

Beers on this show: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Twang Beer Salt, Bluegrass Brewing Company Amber Ale, Alltech Lexington Brewing Company’s Kentucky Ale, Bourbon Kentucky Ale, O’Fallon Wee Heavy, Shorts Huma-Lupa-Licious, Arbor Brewing Sacred Cow IPA, BBC American Pale Ale

Da Yoopers were shamelessly ripped off… But we cut the song down.  Seek them out!  They sing such classics as : “The Bears Still Suck” and “2nd Week of Deercamp”! 

Listen here!

Cuddle up by a tire fire and enjoy this 13 year old gem.

Wet and looking for a brew in Bloomington

I find myself in Bloomington tonight with an hour to spare…. You know I am going to hit a brewery! It would be especially nice if I could hit one that I have not tasted before!

I yelped it…. Keg Grove is two miles away. Through a torrential downpour…. I head across town to try some of the young breweries flavors. I pull in and sit in my car as rain dumps by the gallons.

Looks pretty dead inside…. I check Yelp. They are closed. Argh! It’s cool. There are other breweries in town. I look up Little Beaver. CLOSED! How about White Oak? CLOSED! Well, I know Destihl is open, but by now, I am down to about 60 minutes.

HyVee! It’s like angels called down with the suggestion. It’s close and won’t take much time to get served. Oh and they have an Electric car charging station I can use for my Prius Plugin.

It’s still dumping rain btw. I head to HyVee and park in the electric parking. I hop out of the car in the rain and discover that these charging stations are a new variety that I do not have in my google wallet. I’m properly damp when I jump into the car to download the correct ap and secure my paypal account to it. I leap out with a quickness and smash my phone up against the interface, hoping that physical brutality will assist in making this charge port work more quickly. Nope. After it goes through the faux authorization animations…. it finally makes the distinctive click that comes when a charging station has released its charge “fill nozzle”. We are live and charging.

To say that I am wet after this side adventure in an understatement! I’m soaked!

The writers room

I step inside to HyVee and drip up to bar. Look at that…. They have the local brews! Destihl, Little Beaver, White Oak and Keg Grove! Why…. Why was this not my first stop?

I start with a Keg Grove, Any Direction you Choose. It’s an IPA that satisfies for a cold beer on a crappy night. Unfortunately though it’s small brewery blandness underwhelms and I am not sure I would order it again.

Next up, Little Beaver, Puh Puh Puh. It’s an American Porter. If you advertise American Porter… I expect some hops. I am hoping for for Revolution “Eugene”. Instead.. I am getting something akin to Bent River Stout. To it’s credit, for a small batch porter, it’s pretty flavorful. The more I drink it, the more I appreciate its complexity. Not a bad brew.

Let’s take stock of the night. If it’s early in the week, skip the small breweries in town. They are working their day jobs! If it’s dumping rain, skip the charging station. You won’t get enough juice out of that charger to make a soaking wet shirt worth your while. If you find yourself in need of the local flavors, get to HyVee! They have a beer selection that is completely centered on the local guys. That is pretty cool and it’s obvious that someone is doing their job at the grocery store!
