Internet Beer Users | At the Intersection of Craft Beer and Technology

About the show

Have you ever had one too many beers and thought to yourself "Hey, maybe I should start a podcast"? Us too! We love technology, so we figured we'd get together about once a week, crack a bottle of good brew, and shoot the breeze about Apple, the future of mobile computing, and the differences between East and West Coast IPAs. Join us on a quest for the fastest pings and dankest hops this side of Silicon Valley, cheers!

  • Happy New Year - Halftime Treat by Alvarado Street

  • Bonus Episode - Mockeries - Monkish

    Episode  |  September 11th, 2018  |  1 hr 17 mins

    Here it is: our never before heard lost episode! We recorded this Tuesday, May 29 and we give our predictions for the NBA Finals and announcements for WWDC 2018. Given that Apple’s September iPhone event is tomorrow, it’s very interesting, and super funny, to listen to our thoughts from back in May.

    We hope everyone enjoys this bonus episode and thank you again for your support!

    This episode's show beer is Mockeries by Monkish Brewing.

    Producer’s note: This is a rough version of the episode. As you will see, there is quite a bit of pre-show talk and I left out intro and outro theme music just to give our loyal listeners what it sounds like when we actually record.

    As we raise up our pours of the second batch of the Cellarmaker X Trillium X Other Half collab Juice Gymnastics, we toast each and every one of you who has tuned in to the show during the past year and a half - cheers!
