The Show

The Drunk Guys Book Club Podcast, where books aren’t just for school, book clubs aren’t just for women, and beer makes everything better. Each week, the Drunk Guys tackle a famous book while drinking #Craftbeer matching the book, characters, themes, etc. What beer goes with Orwell's 1984? Founder's Dissenter IPA, of course. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? Seven pumpkin beers. A great #Podcast for readers, drinkers, or anyone with a raunchy sense of humor. Way better than English class.
