Episode 6: That Green Bottle Should Have Been a Red Flag

What’s up?! It’s time again for our five-beer, free-cast for Episode 6. We recorded this one right after episode 5, so language and concepts start off a little…slippery. If you want to hear our 6th (aka 12th!) beer rambling, it’s up on the Patreon. Wanna talk beer with us? Hit us up @themixedsix or in the comments below.

  1. Lucky Buddha by Cheerday Brewing: We mix it up by starting things off with Armchair Director. The hosts share their dream remake and director combo, then Spencer is absurdly wrong.
  2. Grimbergen Double-Ambree: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about Concept and the amazing feat of making charades fun again.
  3. Urban Chestnut’s Revolution Series #1 Winged Nut: In Jukebox in Back, we bare our shame by sharing our top 3 musical guilty pleasures.
  4. Coop Ale Works F5 IPA: In Asked Mixed Six, a listener want’s to know how the hosts manage to write lengthy projects. We share some tips on tricking yourself into typing.
  5. Breckenridge Brewing’s Nitro Vanilla Porter: In a new segment called This Was a Mistake, we talk about a mistake other than drinking throughout the entire podcast. In this episode, that mistake is one most of you are lucky enough to be unfamiliar with: Branson.
