#SippyTimeBeer Review – Barley’s, @DundeeBeer and @RivertownBrew

Rivertown Roebling PorterRivertown Brewing CompanyRoebling Porter – This beer helped me drown my sorrows when Kevin Smith missed his flight from LA to my fine city of Columbus. We still had Jason Mewes and “Comic Book Men” co-host Ming Chen for the “Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie!” which if you can read the ticket was back on June 7th. Cleaning out the summer beer catalog pushed this one back even further than it should have. To the beer, it was mighty fine. Like most porters, it has a combination of vanilla, coffee and chocolate in it. As usual, I had a hard time detecting the chocolate. The vanilla was more in the background than some of the porters like the one from Atwater but it was still there. Unlike Atwater, it was pretty thick. I’d call it as close to a stout as you can get. This company is out of Cincinnati so if you live in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana, you’re in luck if you follow this link.

Barley’s Brewing CompanyBeyond Darkness Stout – I know this beer comes from Barley’s Smokehouse & Brewpub but they aren’t claiming that it’s theirs. They also don’t have it on the menu for Studio 35 where we saw the event. That’s a little strange since I liked this one even more than the porter above. It had that thickness, the “I just finished a milkshake thickness to it” which is always fantastic. Unlike other stouts recently that I’ve had like New Holland Dragon’s Milk or Left Hand Brewing’s Nitro Milk Stout, there’s no sweetener in this stout. Straight up Guinness like blackness which is another kind of fantastic from those other two excellent stouts.

Stunt Granny Audio – #PrimeWrestling Wrestlelution 6: The Art of War Preview

Wrestleution 6 PosterOver the previous four years, I have invited Aaron Maguire on the podcast to help me give a run down of the entire Wrestlelution card. Since he jumped on the show with Ricky Shane Page, Dan & Kevin are here to preview the entire card. How much can be made of an event that hasn’t had any TV exposure? Dan & Kevin are so good they don’t need it though. The Sons of Michigan & Bobby Shields are taking on Bryan Castle, Jay Flash and Aiden Veil. Who haven’t they interviewed from this group? Who is in need of improvement? Who is in need of a win? Nicki Valentino is taking on a mystery opponent. Can Dan & Kevin squeeze any blood out of this stone? There is a four man match involving Gory, Michael Facade, Louis Lyndon and Jimmy Jacobs. How are all of the gentlemen connected? Have Gory & Facade improved from their beginnings in Prime Wrestling? Why did TNA take Flip Kendrick over Lyndon? Will Jimmy Jacobs win this match because he’s the big name? Dan & Kevin moved on to the best of three series to determine the Commissioner of Prime Wrestling. Will the Megalomaniacs & Vic Travgliante or Prime Foundation & Justin LaBar succeed? Will Jimmy Korderas sell any additional tickets for them since he is presiding over these three matches? The three matches are Ricky Shane Page against Bobby Beverly, Matthew Justice defending the TV Title against Matt Cross and Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox defending the Tag Team Titles against Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen. Will it go to the third match to determine the series? What are the odds that would actually happen? Do Dan & Kevin agree who will win the matches? Do they agree on which match is underrated? Is Marti Belle an enhancement to Justice? Prime Wrestling always have a special attraction match and this year’s happens to be Johnny Gargano taking on Paul London. Has London done anything of note in Ring of Honor? Is there any reason for Gargano to lose this match? The main event will involve Prime Heavyweight Champion Krimson taking on ECW, TNA & WWE Alumni Rhino. Why are these two being matched up against each other? How many times can Dan & Kevin tell you to watch the promo from Krimson below? Find out when you click on the link below!
