Episode 40 – Italy’s Redemption


I had a problem with our hosting service for the site and was looking over a few things. We have a big gap in 2009 to 2010 in the posts on our “new” domain that was transferred eons ago. I thought, “Hey, we are doing shows right now, lets throw out some old vintage stuff and let people know we are still around” So… Thats what you have here. Enjoy. Have a cold one for us… OR a room temp one works as well. G

So its been a while since we were “that” dumb beer show out of Pekin… You’ll be glad to know we are back at the grindstone with more international stereotypes and TBR geographical knowledge to share. Tune in for a long show, we make up for our absence with some fun facts about Thomas Hardy, the Industrial Revolution and Aborigines.

Beers on the show: Bottleworks Krulecop, Jenlain, Super Baladin, Thomas Hardy’s Ale,
On the show:

  1. Cruel cops
  2. Beer Report Bucket!
  3. Closet space.
  4. Belgiumites vs. Germans vs. French brewers.

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!


TBR 96 – 2018 Sendoff

Its only 2 months since we recorded last… Groucho and CHUD did sit down for an epic drink at the end of December. Here are the results of that! (Yes, this show should have been released in January! It required editing… Grouchos least favorite thing to do!)

Drunk at the Movies – The Breakfast Club

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. If you like what you hear, or if you have a movie suggestion, be sure to send feedback to and Rate, Review, & Subscribe so you never miss an episode.

TBR 94 – The Near Beer Report

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:

  1. New equipment for recording?
  2. Auto racing in Florida.
  3. Groucho tries to get CHUD to identify that the beer is missing alcohol!!!!
  4. A little love for the “Near Beer”
  5. Anthony Bourdain and how his influence led to shows like ours.
  6. Guy thing?
  7. Hemmingway comparison?

  9. Love for Maquets Railhouse.
  10. Bloomington is pissing CHUD off!
  11. 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.
  12. Kemp’s Upper Tap love!  If your near Lexington… Get there!
  13. CHUD hates midwest resturant service!
  14. Managers!!!  Stop expediting!
  15. Flood warning!
  16. Bourdain might have liked this show???  lol.  The “what-if’s” are very plausable!
  17. 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

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. So grab some beer, get felt up by your grandma, borrow some panties, and yanky your wanky. If you like what you hear, or if you have a movie suggestion, be sure to send feedback to and Rate, Review, & Subscribe so you never miss an episode.

TBR – One for the Road – Groucho and PJ in Dallas

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:

  1. Brazilian Steakhouse eating strategies.
  2. Putting Fish in your jacket?
  3. PJ’s lecture on these stupid Texas u-turns!
  4. The Replublic of Texas!
  5. Stow and go???  Really PJ?
  6. Groucho jacked the order of the stops.
  7. TRAVEL!
  8. Scotts Cheap Flights?  PJ’s hookup.
  9. Gin?
  10. Oingo Boingo talk.

We get long on this one…  But… Thats what bar hopping does to you!
