Episode 100 – Anniversary Special part 2

Here’s part 2 of our anniversary special, in which we decide to play Cards Against Humanity while drinking fantastic beers and still try to keep it clean.  That worked about as well as you’d think.

Episode 99 – Anniversary Special Part 1

We’re 100 episodes in!  Well, really it’s quite a bit more than that, what with special episodes and Brews News and so on, but our completely arbitrary number we’ve assigned to episodes says we’re about at 100 (give or take).

So with all that specialness in mind, we’ve decided to do a two part anniversary show with games and trivia and glory holes.  I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it.

4 Hands Madagascar 2

Stone Xocoveza

Sixpoint Resin

Jolly Pumpkin La Vida Improvisacion


Episode 98 – Funkwerks
