Ballast Brewing Company Sea Rose Tart Cherry Wheat Ale: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about the neat little place Machi Kuro has cut out for itself between Monopoly and Settlers of Catan.

Evil Twin Brewing’s No Hero: In Getting Lit(erature), we provide some tips for separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to the glut of How-To books.

Defiance Brewing Co. Fuzzy Knuckles: Caleb is the one with a Travel Hangover this week. He discusses the many beers of our nation’s capital.

Vieille Provision Saison Dupont: In Ask Mixed Six, we ponder whether or not a nerdy obsession has to come about naturally or through cultivation.

Against the Grain Brewery Pile of Face: We were asked about our Top 3 Most Unfounded Fears, and we figured we should at least make our many enemies climb the paywall before doing the opposition research for them.

BONUS: The Mixed Six Goes To Mother’s

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Mother’s Brewing Tasting Room to record an episode with their beer experts. As they so generously hosted us, we figured we’d put it up as a freebie for newcomers and patreon veterans alike. Kick back with a cold one and enjoy this extra-long bonus episode of The Mixed Six. And if you’re in Springfield MO on a Tuesday afternoon, be sure to come hangout at one of the podcast’s sponsored game nights.

Snapback by Mother’s Brewing (2:00): In Dissecting Our Fun, we meet beer liason/tap monkey Kyle and encounter a philosophical hardline stance on the concept of rules-lawyering.

Lil’ Helper by Mother’s Brewing (19:00): In a new segment called Actually Professional Drinking, we meet lab guy Brad and brewmaster Dave to get a 101 on the science of brewing beer.

Blush by Mother’s Brewing (40:15): In yet another new segment called “Still Professionally Drinking, Actually,” Brad and Dave take us beyond the chemistry into the art of brewing a beer that’s actually good.

Asceticism by Mother’s Brewing (1:01:17): In our old friend COM Corner, Kyle and Dave discuss the myriad of considerations that go into naming a beer.

Brevity by Mother’s Brewing (1:17:05): Getting Lit(erature) today is about the odd but rewarding aesthetic pairing that can occur when you match an author to an accompanying beverage.

Rated R by Mother’s Brewing (1:43:53): Definitely Drunk Enough, the gang interrogates the value of local pubs and breweries in modern American society.

Ep. 13: The S’mores Betrayal

Welcome back (except for those of you with trikaideckaphobia; we understand and we’ll see you in a few weeks). In this episode, Producer Ross and Caleb start by poisoning Spencer and things only get better from there. We hit some old favorites and try a whole new segment in the full version. If you want to check it out, don’t forget to hit us up on the Patreon.

1. Innis and Gunn Rum Cast: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about our board game deal-breakers.

2. Evil Twin Brewing’s Don No: The fans have spoken, and they want Sportsplainer. Spencer more than delivers with an exhaustive explanation of March Madness.

3. Avery Brewing Company’s Rumpkin: Ask Mixed Six wants to know when an antihero is too antihero. We draw our lines in the sand.

4. Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project St. Bretta Brettanomyecs Citrus Wildbier Valencia Orange: After that mouthful, we step into Living With Humans to discuss the effects of ubiquitous social media on domestic life.

5.  Ommegang Brewery’s Gnomegang Blonde Ale: In Binge Binger, we discuss the ongoing embarrassment that is Big Bang Theory.

6. Elysian Space Dust IPA: After an extra long free episode, we try something new for our backers with Snippet of Adventure! By popular demand, Producer Ross and Caleb introduce Spence to the world of RPGs. We start with character creation and the campaign promises to be interesting.
