Drunken Lullabies – Drunk at the Movies – UHF


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!


PS… My Victoria Jackson love was a real thing back in the 80’s!

Beers on the show from Aldi, Trader Joes and assorted other places.    Liquid Mechanics and Stone Brewing  beers were killing it!

TBR 86 – Crowler


Groucho comes back from San Diego and brings back some fresh Stone Brewing Beer.  Not Arrogant Brewing…  That would be confusing.  Wait a second… That is confusing!  What the Hell are they doing out there in Escondido with the brewery names???   Thats for a different show.

Anyway.  Groucho brings back a “crowler” of Stone Brewing Ripper IPA. Its a great way to start a new string of shows!

TBR 69 – The Fox Pub show 2

TBR 69
TBR 69

We had recorded this show directly following the last Fox Pub show last month…  We had wanted to make sure we put out the last one lickity-split, in order to get the word out on the North-side Beerfest.  (Which we heard was awesome!)

This show, we get a little more into the doing’s and business of the Fox Pub, and get Matt to defect questions left and right.  That means we are doing our jobs right?  We had a great time, and Rob (Central Illinois’ version of Bonus Beer Bob) makes sure we have some comedic interruptions.  Chad shows up with the bonus beer though… So, we may need to rethink the titles of these “extras”.

I have to admit… This show had me smiling all the way through on production.  I hope you enjoy it as much I did!  G

Beers on the show:  Stone 15th Anniversary Ale, Schlafly Raspberry Coffee Stout, Boulevard Coffee Ale.

On the show:

  1. Groucho got kicked out of Joe’s Brewery in Champaign. (20 years ago)
  2. Matt shares Anhesuer Busche’s latest canned offering.  (Didn’t even bother to spell check that!)
  3. Code for locals when a macros are ordered!
  4. Stone brewing talk and wishing we could be as cool as Greg Koch.
  5. Big Al’s talk.
  6. Matt deflects!
  7. Matt gives us the whole story on the Fox!  Beer is his passion!
  8. If Rob owned a bar…  Bad idea!
  9. Do what you love…  And you’ll never work a day in your life?  lol!
  10. Spaceball Quotes ensue with Raspberry beer!
  11. Rob’s whale farm.
  12. Tingle theme.
  13. Schlafly beers where Groucho’s gateway.
  14. Does Matt’s wife wear a fake smile?  We all wonder how she stayed in Central Illinois!
  15. Fox Pub bus trip to GABF.
  16. Growth market… Central Illinois!
  17. The Fox “Tourie”.
  18. Trivia on Thursdays, live bands on Saturdays.
  19. “I hate God!”
  20. Shout out to Kevin at Harvest Cafe.

Thanks to Matt and all the gang for letting us hang out and have a great time talking about beers at an awesome local venue!  Make your way there if you get the chance!  And don’t let them make the ducky noise!!!
