Episode #65: Five Geeks GoT Six Ommegang Beers




This episode will be a little different from the others.  So much so that Brian decided to sit out.  This week we are joined by Alex Van Horne and Jake Collins from Intergalactic Brewing, Rob Dufau from 2kids Brewing, and Jesse Squire, who happened to show up to watch us and ended up on the show.  I got these guys together so we could talk about the massive hit TV show Game of Thrones.  Okay, this is a beer podcast, I brought out my Brewery Ommegang Game of Thrones beers I have been saving.

We go through all six beers that have been produced up to this point and talk about them.  But of course that is not all, we also talk about many, many other geek topics.  So many that we have to keep a count of how many references we make.  We hope you enjoy this episode, hopefully we don’t spoil anything for you.  But be warned, there are SPOILERS and there are TANGENTS!
