The Show

Based out of the Scenic City, Chattanooga, Tennessee. Sit down with Tanner, Jared, and Alan for a couple of pints of good conversation, theories, and beer. This show isn't for the faint of heart, or children. But neither is good beer. We can't promise you won't be offended, but we can promise good conversation and (hopefully) some good beer. After all, good conversation is intoxicating.

They also recently visited the new pour your own beer bar in town, American Draft, and they have lots to tell you about that.

They also discuss what can give a beer a plastic or rubbery taste.

Below is from the MoreBeer website:


Tastes/Smells Like:
Plastic, Vinyl, Iodine
Possible Causes:
Using chlorinated tap water to brew or rinse equipment is the most common cause
for plastic-like or medicinal flavors. Medicinal flavors can also be the result of using
cleanser or sanitizer that is chlorine or iodine based. Some wild yeast will contribute
to a similar medicinal taste.
How to Avoid:
Don’t use chlorinated water to brew or to rinse equipment that will come into contact
with the beer. If chlorinated water must be used, use a water filter that removes
chlorine or boil the water for 15 minutes and then cool to room temperature to force
out any chlorine that may be present. Always use the recommended amount and
concentrations of sanitizers. Most sanitizers will not cause any off flavors when used
properly. When using bleach, use one-half ounce per gallon of water, let equipment
soak for 10 minutes and always rinse with sanitized (pre-boiled) water.”

Opposite Box presents a theatrical live experience with an over-the-top, psychedelic atmosphere. Dazzling lights, a spectacular cast of characters ranging from belly dancers and fire eaters to live painters and costumed freaks and an organized cacophony of sounds and inspirations hearken back to a time when artists were more than still life paintings in the background performing the soundtrack to failed dive bar pickup lines and overly complicated drink orders.  Opposite Box challenges all in attendance to engage and react, allowing the audience to become the show.                                                                                                                                   -

Download Episode 41 - MAINx24 Special

If you were anyone in Chattanooga this past weekend, then you probably made it down to MAINx24. The Brew Chatt Squad was down there and we posted up in front of Feed Co. Table & Tavern to do our first of many to come, live podcast recordings. Our good friend Brian Bender linked up with us and sat in as well. We discussed the festival, how Chattanooga is the perfect place for a festival like this, and what would have happened had Darth Vader survived at the end of Return of the Jedi.

Download Episode 39 - Wishful Dreams & Wheat Beers

Everyone has had those ideas for fantastic movies that should get made but never will. Hollywood is a cruel mistress and due to licenses and royalties various films never will see the light of day. Here's our pitches for some of those hopes and dreams. We discuss how the Winter Solider would be a great character for a Bourne Identity film and how World War Z could have been done right. We also discuss Marvel's Doctor Strange.

Download Episode 37 - Film Noir / True Crime & Georgia Beers

This episode we're talking about one of our favorite genres, which encompasses quite a bit of sub-genres. Film Noir and True Crime. The genre was the bell of the ball in the 1940's and 50's but many of the genre stereotypes can be seen in films today.

Wild Heaven Brewing | Dionysus Barrel Aged Wild Ale

Burnt Hickory Brewing | Big Shanty Graham Cracker Stout

Red Hare Brewing | Long Night Lager

Terrapin Brewing | Sound Czech Pilsner



Download Episode 36 - Tennessee Beers & Car Movies w/ Jordan McCay

This episode we are joined once again by Jordan McCay from Riverside Wine and Spirits to talk about Tennessee beers. Despite our best efforts we do tip into a bit of political territory this episode, but that doesn't detract from us talking about car movies. Movies like Bullitt, Vanishing Point, and the original Gone in Sixty Seconds set a precedence for car movies and the desire to shoot practical effects because, well... they had to. But without the foundation that these great classic films established we wouldn't have the large franchised car movies we have today such as Transformers and the Fast and Furious Franchise. We also discuss some of the strange liquor laws that we are constantly inundated with living here in the South, on the buckle of the Bible-Belt.

Our Tennessee beers are:

Wiseacre Brewing | Tacky

Yee Haw Brewing | Dunkel

Blackerry Farm Brewing + Evil Twin Brewing | From TN With Smoke


Here is the original Gone in 60 Seconds chase sequence for your pleasure... and ours.


This episode Tanner and Jared discuss what makes a "classic" film a classic. Of course there are the givens such as The Godfather, Citizen Kane, or Gone with the Wind. But there what classics have come out in the modern era? We're drinking on Banana Beers this week.

Our Beers are:

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale

Southern Tier Warlock

Rivertown Pumpkin Autumnal Ale Spiced Beer

This week Tanner sits down with Jocelyn and Jared to drink Double IPAs and talk about Sci-Fi Films. Sci-Fi Film is a genre that's nearly as old as the medium itself. It was fairly relocated to B-Movies up through the fifties and sixties, at least until the Hollywood machine got a hold of it. Nowadays nearly every mainstream bit of cinema has elements of the Sci-Fi genre.

Dogfish Head | 90 Minute IPA

Green Flash Brewing | Le Freak

Sixpoint Brewing | Puff

Everybody has those movies they loved when they were younger, and then been disappointed at how badly the film has aged.  Whether it's the story, CGI, acting, or what have you, it's soul crushing when one of your favorite films "sours" so to speak. This week Jared and Tanner are back with new-comer Jocelyn to discuss sour beers and movies that have soured. We touch on how Jumanji may or may not have aged poorly, but we're excited for the sequel.  But we also developed a hypothesis that any movie in the 90's that was about the Internet.... has aged beyond belief.
