TBG 97: 2018-19 Premier League Season Preview

Premier League is almost back! We are so excited to share our second Premier League season preview with you. Time has flown by. We take a look at the upcoming season, and make our predictions on how things will unfold.

Ron brings in a listener beer for us to try this episode. Despite the fact we've already tried two of their beers on previous episodes (and they were...not exactly hits with the gang) one of our longtime listeners wanted us to give a third beer from Butternut Brewing a chance. Is third time the charm? We've tried Moo Thunder and Porkslap on previous episodes, but this one is their IPA Farmhouse ale called Snapperhead. As the look on Ferris' face shows before we actually tried the beer, we didn't exactly have a lot faith this would turn out well.

Ron also had a second listener beer from one of our Canadian followers. This one was the Powerhouse Pale Ale from Mt. Begbie Brewing Company. I think this was his backup plan in case things went south with the first beer.

We'll be running another Premier League Fantasy contest, so keep an eye out for details.

TBG 96: 2018 FIFA World Cup Wrap Up

After a some crazy travel schedules, we all three finally have the chance to sit down and discuss our overall thoughts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. We go over our predictions, favorite moments, and what we think will be the most remembered parts of this World Cup. We also take a look at how our brackets did, and how our Beer World Cup brackets turned out. You can see those here: Brewtiful Game World Cup Brackets.

To celebrate France's win, the boys' beer of the pod is Kronenbourg 1664.

It's been a great World Cup, thanks for joining us on the first one we've covered on this podcast. Next stop, France for the 2019 Women's World Cup!

TBG 95: 2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16 and Quarterfinals | MLS News | James O'Connor to Orlando City SC

This World Cup has been a blast so far, and we are having just as much fun looking back at all the matches. In this episode we cover the round of 16 and the quarterfinals. After the World Cup talk, we discuss the hiring of James O'Connor to MLS side Orlando City SC. We also take a bit of a dive into the overall state of MLS.

We have two beers to review this pod. The first is brought to us by Ferris, and it is from 7venth Sun Brewery in Dunedin, FL. It was a sour Berliner Weisse called Freak Your Tiki, and was unlike anything we've had on the show so far.

Our second beer was brought in by Blake, who also kept things local with a brew from Cigar City Brewing from Tampa, FL. This Red India Pale Ale called Tocobaga was a nice addition to their already fine line of ales.

By the way, is anyone else having as much fun as we are with the World Cup Panini sticker books?

TBG 94: 2018 FIFA World Cup Group Stage Wrap Up | Rooney Joins MLS

Group Stage of the World Cup is done already? It's gone by so quick. Probably because it's been one of the best World Cup Group Stages to watch. In this new episode, we talk some favorite highlights and look ahead to the knockout rounds. We end the show with our thoughts on Wayne Rooney joining MLS as a player for D.C. United.

The beer of this pod is brought to us by a listener from New York (thanks, Jeff!). It's a very juicy, double dry hopped IPA called Down Under Bomb from Sloop Brewing Company. It was as cloudy as orange juice, and super citrusy. Give a listen to the beginning of the pod for our full review.

TBG 93: 2018 FIFA World Cup Kicks off in Russia | Landon Donovan a Mexico Supporter | Kreis Kicked out of Orlando City SC

The 2018 FIFA World Cup has kicked off! So far, it's been fantastic.

In this new episode talk the opening matches of the World Cup, Landon Donovan pledging his support to the Mexico national team, and end with MLS discussion covering the firing of Jason Kreis as Orlando City SC's head coach.

The beer of the pod was brought in by Ron, and in honor of how many World Cup nations had a Russian Imperial Stout as their top rated beer, he graced the show with a true top rated classic in North Coast Brewing Company's Old Rasputin Imperial Stout.
