The Mixed Six Podcast

Beers. Board games. Pop culture. And a little drunken philosophy.

Month: July 2018

Ep. 42: Another Bacon Beer on the Barbie

Our friend Maddy flew around the world to visit us for a recording! Considering one of the beers she brought, her continued presence on the show is…questionable. It makes for a fun listen though, even if Spencer’s tongue never recovers.

Barossa Valley Brewing’s I Can’t Believe it’s Not Bacon: In Dissecting Our Fun, we try to talk about the kid’s dexterity game Rhino Hero, but we mainly discuss the awful thing that has been wrought upon Spencer by a foreign invader. Is this how wars start? Asking for a friend.

Little Bang Brewing Co. Breakfast At Stepney Coffee Oatmeal Stout: Travel Advisory returns with a prescient question over what people miss most during international travel. The beer gets better too, but how could it not?

Lobethal Bierhaus Creme Brûlée Sweet Dessert Ale: Ask Mixed Six is having another Fire Sale. Rapid fire questions go!

Little Bang Brewing Co. The Pinkening Hibiscus Session Sour: This Was a Mistake is travel focused as well because there are few mistakes as absurd, expensive, and long-lasting as the TSA.

Pikes Beer Company 2015 Cherry Kriek: In this Mixed Six Mock Draft, H.G. Wells has used his time machine to form a tabletop game company. What other novelists does he recruit to design games with him, and what type of games do they design?

Goodies Brewery (McLaren Vale) Coffee Stout: Finally Drunk Enough, a bunch of freelancers ask themselves how much they are willing to pay to avoid a boring job.

Ep. 41: Hibiscus Seems Like an Elf Flavor

We’re finally back to recording after a long June of convention travel. We also have a guest this episode! Long-time collaborator Maddy flew in from Australia to hang with us. She’s a bit too jet-lagged to say much this episode, but she’ll be back with more to say in the future once she’s acclimated to our harsh Missouri climate.

Elevator Brewing Company Bleeding Buckeye Red Ale: The MX6 Game Jam is back as we try to turn an actual sport into a tabletop board game as absurdly as possible. 

Mt Carmel Brewing Company Hibiscus Blueberry Blonde: In We Make a Pair, we link fantasy races to the real-world beers they would obviously love.

Great Lakes Brewing Co. Eliot Ness Amber Lager: Humanities Fight discusses the possibility of philosophical change through the lens of lightbulb jokes. This one got a little weird…

Maumee Bay Brewing Co Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout: The fans Ask Mixed Six about the ethics of “ghosting.”

Thirsty Dog Brewing Company Old Leghumper Robust Porter: The crew is suffering some blockbuster fatigue, and this Armchair Director interrogates where that comes from. 

The Brew Kettle Production Works Kitka Coconut Chocolate Milk Stout: In the world of the side-gig and stay-cation, is vacation time just forcing yourself to be bored, or should you start yet another project? We pose the question once Drunk Enough.
