The Mummy and Bravo from Firestone Walker Brewing

Cheers! In honor of Universal’s new movie “The Mummy,” which is supposedly kicking off a new Dark Universe of Universal monster movie reboots, we are watching 1932’s “The Mummy,” starring Boris Karloff, and 1959’s “The Mummy,” starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

We’ve paired our “Mummy” double feature with an aged beer – do you see what we did there? It’s Bravo, an imperial brown ale aged in oak bourbon barrels, from Firestone Walker.

Cheers! Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s back to podcasting we go … and this time we have a guest.

In honor of “Snow White,” we’re drinking Allagash White. We talk about the making of this ground-breaking film and share our thoughts about the film. We have all kinds of thoughts and feelings about “Snow White.” Plus, we talk about our favorite Disney movies, favorite Disney princesses and more.

The Maltese Falcon and Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot Barleywine

“I distrust a man who says ‘when.’ If he’s got to be careful not to drink too much, it’s because he’s not to be trusted when he does.” -Kasper Gutman in “The Maltese Falcon”

In this podcast, we are drinking Bigfoot Barleywine aged in whiskey barrels from Sierra Nevada and talking about “The Maltese Falcon” … all three of them. We know what you are thinking, “Wait, there’s more than one Maltese Falcon?” Don’t say Old Movies, New Beer never taught you anything.

Along with the classic Humphrey Bogart-starring “Maltese Falcon,” we talk about the first “Maltese Falcon,” a precode film from 1931, and the comedy take on the same story in 1936 titled “Satan Met A Lady,” starring Bette Davis.

All Six “Thin Man” Movies and Waterloo Double 8 Dark

(The podcast is available on iTunes, too.)

Cheers! In this podcast we’re talking about all six of “The Thin Man” movies.

It is our New Year’s Eve tradition to watch “The Thin Man” movies. Well, not all six of them. We can barely stay up to midnight, let alone sit through six movies in an evening. On New Year’s Eve, David prepares a fancy meal (this year it was Beef Bourguignon – yum), and we watch at least the first “Thin Man,” possibly “After the Thin Man,” too.
