Episode 1: First Sip

April 8, 2017

This is our first go at our free form podcast about nothing - just Friends Over Beers. Jesse and Joe join Ryan on the show. Mike Greenberg, clipping your nails at work, Masters talk, sports fixings, Australian coins, hospitality tents, getting hit by a golf ball, competing against math, championship draws and synchronized urination. First show got a little sports heavy, but its gonna happen from time to time. We're drinking Hophazardly out of a growler from Begyle Brewing Company. Hophazardly is a citrus-bomb of an IPA featuring large doses of Citra and Simcoe hops. It is not called "Hoppamania" though we think that should be the name of a beer.
