Ep. 104: He Shall From Time to Time... (Feat. Yellowbelly & Whiplash)

As we begin the second year of our term, it's time once more for the State of the Brewnion. We're joined by friend of the show, John 'The Beer Nut' Duffy, to get a run down of the year in beer, as well as to give out the prestigious 'Stupid Pointless Awards'. We drink beer from Yellowbelly & Whiplash. James also brought along a little surprise that we think you'll find quite... fetching.
