We’re back with part 1 of another ill-advised double recording session. If you want to hear the drunker half, head on over to the Patreon. Until then, enjoy the continued and varied beer crimes of the Lone Star State.
Angry Chair Brewing’s Untitled Art – Loaded French Toast Imperial Stout (2): Spencer bought and played an indie story-telling game! We have to Dissect This Fun, as it is obviously a historically significant mutation within the fun fossil record.
Sceptre Arts Brewing Chaos Magician Double Dry-Hopped IPA (4): It’s time to clean up the curriculum by throwing some high school classes into the B-hole.

In this episode, we drink a bunch of blueberries and talk about the decay of empire. You know, typical ‘cracking open a cold one’ conversations.

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project L’Brett d’ Blueberry Golden Sour Ale Aged in Oak Barrels with Washington Blueberries (5): In a temporary loss of reason, the listeners think we are physically fit enough to fight.

Hell on Earth is here and now…but at least one year of it is about to be gone. We celebrate and commemorate things best left buried in our memories in this year’s MX6 Beer in Review!
(Note: Owing to existence in hellworld, it has been impossible to track down re-ups of our Top 6 number 5’s of the year, so we shall be reviewing all new beers to cap out the solar cycle…we are just THAT eager to get out of this year, we are already on to the next.)
Off Color Brewing Dino Smores–Imperial Marshmallow Stout (5): 2020 was all about taking one for the team, so Spencer tried an imperial s’mores stout. Speaking to jumping on grenades, this Dissecting Our Fun is about designing 2020, the board game.
Bellwoods Brewery Grandma’s Boy Wild Ale Blend w/ Niagara Shiro Plums (5): The Professional Drinkers give out the coveted Brewery of the Year award.

Oskar Blues’ Mama’s Little Yella Pils (3): Finally Drunk Enough, we answer the ‘how to write’ question. Caleb’s answer is appreciated at levels commiserate with his other contributions.
Birk is back, and we’re finally brave enough to admit something: we’re tired of all those damn trees with their arboreal biomass above the ground! What are they trying to prove?! Show-offs….
Anyway, we talk about Gloomhaven, manners befitting a hootenanny, and Producer Daddy’s love of grasses.
Haand Bryggeriet Odins Tipple Imperial Stout (4): In Dissecting Our Fun, Caleb begs his hosts to talk him out of buying baby Gloomhaven, aka Jaws of the Lion. Perhaps this was the wrong audience to ask.
