Brews Brothers Season 1 Review: Beer Brewing Comedy Not So Sunny

Netflix's Brews Brothers was a series we were hyped for before it started to hit on everyone's radars (or if it did hit, they didn't write and post about it online), so I stayed up after it dropped on the streaming service and binged the first season in one run. In case you were wondering […]

"Brews Brothers": Netflix Comedy Exactly What We Need Now [TRAILER]

Are you a fan of irreverent comedy and madcap sibling relationships? If so, do I have a show for you to look forward to! Brews Brothers is a new Netflix show releasing April 10, and it looks absolutely hilarious. It's been on my radar for awhile, but I realize it's flown pretty low to the […]

Review: "Game Of Thrones" – "My Watch Has Ended" Beer By Ommegang

As Game Of Thrones came to a close this year, we've had a lot to reflect on. Especially from a drinking point-of-view courtesy of Ommegang.

Review: Game of Thrones – King in the North Beer

We got another awesome opportunity, as the holidays approach with the cold, to warm our souls up with some Game of Thrones beer from Ommegang. This time around, we got King in the North: a mighty imperial stout fit for Jon Snow, with an 11% ABV. A lot of the brews we've received from Ommegang […]


Red Wedding Brew: We Review Game Of Thrones' Mother of Dragons Beer

Every time we have the pleasure of receiving a new Game Of Thrones beer from Brewery Ommegang, it's so tempting to just call the article "I Drink & I Know Things". The wonderful people at HBO were kind enough to send us a bottle of their latest brew, this one called Mother of Dragons in […]

If you're going to get drunk on some kind of beer made to pay tribute to a TV show, you can't go wrong with the Game of Thrones beers from Brewery Ommegang (at least, until someone finally gets around to making some kind of special brew for It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia). HBO was kind […]

Nerd Food: Black Flag Brewing Company's Saved by the Bell Beer

Since I grew up mostly in the '90s, I did indeed watch Saved by the Bell. It was a fun, wholesome show with good messages that kids could understand. I still watch re-runs every now and again, and overall I enjoy the nostalgia it brings whenever I think about it. Obviously I'm not alone, as […]

Nerd Food: Natty Boh's Crab Shack Shandy

Let me fill you in on a secret (that I think everyone knows): I love National Bohemian Beer. I have Mr. Boh — the winking mascot — tattooed on my arm. So when Pabst Blue Ribbon, the parent company of National Bohemian, released a new Natty Boh flavor, I knew what I had to do! […]

Nerd Food: Maudite Belgian Style Double Ale

New Years Eve was a laid back one for me. It was far too cold to venture outside for any great length of time, so my favorite guy and I cracked open this bottle of Maudite from Unibroue to kick off our NYE! This Belgian Style Double Ale is frankly delicious. One of the first […]

Barzinga At Shore Leave With Author Russ Colchamiro

Last weekend at Shore Leave, Rich Henn and I sat down with author Russ Colchamiro on his new book, Love, Murder, & Mayhem: Cosmic Tales From The Heart Gone Wrong. I'm actually reading the book right now, so I'll have a review of it up as soon as I'm done. It was a great night […]

I Drink & I Know Things: Trying Out The New 'Game Of Thrones' Beer

Looking at the geeky calendar, Game Of Thrones Season 7 will be premiering on July 17. But before that, we have another event many of you need to worry about: Father's Day. Normally we would just pass this over and get dad a necktie with a Star Trek logo on it and some breakfast at […]

Barzinga At The Five Points Festival: Beer! Toys! Comics!

Over the weekend, Henn and I traveled up to the Five Points Festival in NYC's Lower East Side. The show is a fantastic first-year con, as I've said in my previous report. We sadly didn't get any special guest stars on today's episode, but that's OK. Our next con will actually be Wizard World Philly, […]
