The Mixed Six Podcast

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

Month: September 2018

Ep. 45: Getting In Snakepit

Pictured: A spa day, apparently?

Against all our better judgments, Spencer has insisted on another food based rating system. We…we really can’t stop him at this point. He seems fully intent on destroying the podcast with his Ahab-like quest to antagonize our entire fanbase. Please don’t leave us as a result of his monstrous obsession. Please. We don’t want to have to sell the podcasting equipment due to a discussion of sauerkraut.

Anyway, here’s the next episode.

Puyallup River Brewing Co’s Pineapple Ghost Pepper Cream Ale: In Dissecting Our Fun, we discuss the latest game in targeted cuteness — Everdell. 

One Tree Hard Cider Lemon Basil Hard Cider: The Professional Drinkers briefly address a backer question before writing a history of the slain King IPA. Does the fall of craft brewing’s bitter tyrant herald a new golden age, or are we headed for the burst of an enormous economic bubble?

Seven Seas Brewing Water Chopper Gose Ale Brewed on Sea Salt on Coriander: We try our first beer blend on air before washing it down with another, discretely fantastic beer. Then, finally, we get around to Nerdsplainer and test student Spencer on his progress in the nerdy arts.

Boom Island Brewing Company Hoodoo Dubbel: We’re blending beers AND segments! In this joint Armchair Director/Getting Lit(erature), we discuss the top three book adaptations that Baz Luhrman absolutely should not direct. 

Unibroue Ephemere Belgian Style Fruit Flavored Wheat Ale: Ask Mixed Six is about getting over colds and other minor illnesses. Three dudes who regularly share cans of infection with each other weigh in. 

MKE Brewing Louie’s Resurrection Barrel Aged Amber Ale: We’re finally Drunk Enough to discuss what is perhaps the most baffling subject we’ve ever covered. What transcendent experiences would improve your life, but you’re too afraid to try?

Ep. 44: Father Figure is a Dealbreaker

It’s Maddy’s final episode state-side, and what better way to say goodbye than to drink a bunch of beers on a microphone (incidentally, this is also how we said “hello” and “it’s a Tuesday”; it’s the only language we know). Before we send our ambassador back to the other side of the world, let’s get up to our beer rating shenanigans one last time!

Fat Head’s Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale: We had a great time with the newest evolution of Castles of Mad King Ludwig: The Palace of Mad King Ludwig. We Dissect Our Fun with the game in this segment. 

North Loop BrewCo. IPA Foto: The Armchair Directors suggest sequels for one-off movies that never got revisited. Spencer fundamentally misunderstands the premise. 

American Trappist’s Spencer India Pale Ale: It’s a tiny fire sale in this week’s Ask Mixed Six!

Rusty Rails Fool’s Gold Peanut Butter Hefeweizen: In what is assuredly one of the funniest things ever recorded, this week’s Jukebox in Back is about the top 3 songs you DON’T want to hear in the bedroom. 

Lost Signal Brewing Under the Tower Sour: It’s been out long enough that we can finally start gushing about Luke Cage Season 2 in this week’s Binge Binger.

Platform Beer Co’s Smoking’ Fineapple Gose: Drunk Enough is sparked by an awkward conversation with a Lyft driver. How do you resist showing off in subjects in which you consider yourself an expert?
