Barley & Me Presents: Leonard Malting Reviews! Smokey & The Bandit

November 23, 2020

Barley & Me host Ben Rice joins co-hosts Corky McDonnell (Dare Daniel Podcast) & Paulina Olivares (Sacramento Pink Boots Society) for this beer-centric movie podcast offshoot, Leonard Malting. Today we discuss the 1977 Coors heist classic Smokey & The Bandit. Does this movie stand the test of time? Should it be remade? Can it be remade? If so, with whom? We break this film down and possibly destroy your childhood, as we unearth... casual racism, negging, fat-shaming, the 70s obsession with gas-guzzling and CBs, and how this movie spurred a whole subculture in the last 70s and early 80s. Plus! Is this the best trilogy to start in 1977? Fight us, Star Wars! This episode has everything, so ENJOY!

If you have a beer-centric or heavily-beer-involved movie recommendation, let us know and maybe we’ll do this again!

Host Ben Rice chats with Brian Moore, a comedian and former employee of Santa Clara Valley Brewing and Fort Point Brewing, and Kelly Berger, a person excited but hesitant to try comedy and former taproom manager and sales associate for Solid Ground and New Glory.

Plus! Comedy in a baseball stadium, the struggles of small breweries to maintain the status quo, comedy do’s and don’t’s when starting out (and showrunning), why bigger breweries might struggle with this shutdown more than you’d think, self-roasts, worst shows, and being an asshole on a first date.

Leonard Malting Reviews! The World’s End

Leonard Malting Reviews! The World’s End

October 5, 2020

Leonard Malting is the beer-focused movie review offshoot of Barley & Me Podcast, featuring B&M host Ben Rice, plus co-hosts Corky McDonnell (Dare Daniel Podcast) and Paulina Olivares (Sacramento Pink Boots Society). In this episode, we discuss the 2012 Edgar Wright sci-fi/buddy flick "The World's End." Could this episode BE more timely?

Join us on the Golden Mile as we discuss this seemingly-straightforward film's many twists and turns, its excellent plotting and hidden messages, and we do it while enjoying a Silver Moon Brewing F* Cancer IPA! As we explore this movie's themes, it dredges up painful memories of our pasts, our medical maladies, and even leads to some song recommendations, if you're interested. Enjoy our take on this overlooked gem!

If you have a beer-centric or heavily-beer-involved movie recommendation, let us know and maybe we’ll do this again!

Oak Park Brewing’s Rodg & Theo Mack, Jr.on behalf of People’s Brewing

August 31, 2020

In this special episode, host Ben Rice talks to absolutely no one! Oak Park Brewing in Sacramento had the good fortune of collaborating with the first Black-owned brewery in America, People's Brewing in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin! So OPB's head brewer Rodg interviews the son of the owner, Theo Mack, Jr. We'll hear about how Theo Mack, Sr., came into the beer business, his journeys in the military and through the Civil Rights Movement, and what People's Beer meant then and what it should mean now. It's a fascinating look at beer history, civil rights history, and how those are so intimately intertwined, and speaks to all the things America is going through right now. Thank you to Oak Park Brewing for doing this, making this beer, and letting me use this audio. Go hunt down this lager; it's one hell of a beer. Enjoy!

Barley & Me Presents: Leonard Malting Reviews! Dazed & Confused

Barley & Me Presents: Leonard Malting Reviews! Dazed & Confused

July 20, 2020

Leonard Malting is the beer-focused movie review offshoot of the Barley & Me Podcast, featuring B&M host Ben Rice, plus co-hosts Corky McDonnell (Dare Daniel Podcast) and Paulina Olivares (Pink Boots Society). In this episode, we discuss the 1993 indie stoner comedy classic Dazed & Confused. Known as a weed movie, Ben argues it might actually be a beer movie. We break down break-out roles, high school hazing, and the bygone lazy days of summer. Plus! We drink a variety of Black Is Beautiful beers (cheers to Oak Park, Urban Roots, and Bike Dog Brewing for the provisions) and F* Cancer IPA from Silver Moon Brewing.

If you have a beer-centric or heavily-beer-involved movie recommendation, let us know and maybe we’ll do this again!
