Episode 224 - A Late 2019 Retrospective

As the first episode of 2020, we put up our late retrospective of 2019. Ian Sharpe and Scott Samuels join and we break down some of the gains and losses of the beer industry and some of our favorite movies of both 2019 and the decade. We talk about how streaming services stepped up their game in the 20-tens, how it was the age that we stepped into a mild future, and how 3 major franchises ended this past year. We’re also drinking a few beers that Jared brought back from Maryland, and we’ve got several stouts Riverside sent our way.

We’ve got Brady Effler joining for this episode to give a SPOILER FILLED review of Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. But what started out as a review of Episode 9 eventually turned into a great discussion and review of the full scope of the trilogy of trilogies. We found it hard to really discuss the newest installment without thoroughly discussing what is now the Star Wars ennealogy.

Tanner and Ian discuss the finale to HBO’s The Watchmen. Yes, there’s probably a season 2, yes we see dong, and yes it was solid. But there were still a few gripes, but not the typical gripes you would get from super fans. It was a great season overall and it’s been a blast having these after-shows, alas the end is nigh. So go finish the season and come back here to see exactly what’s what and maybe have a beer after one hell of a ride with one of the best TV series of this past year.

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.
