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.

Alec Guinness Classics and HenHouse Brewing

Cheers! We’re back. Did you miss us? To make up for our hiatus, we’re going to talk about three movies – that’s right, THREE – movies starring Alec Guinness.

In honor of these three movies from Ealing Studios we’re drinking East Coast Bias from HenHouse Brewing from Petaluma, California. We actually don’t have a clever tie-in this time. We just really like this beer, and we want to talk about it.

Meet Me In St. Louis, Bathing Beauty and Jubel 2015 from Deschutes Brewery

deschutesCheers! We put on our dancing shoes for this podcast, in which we chat about two MGM musicals, “Meet Me In St. Louis” and “Bathing Beauty,” while drinking Jubel 2015 from Deschutes Brewery.

We start off talking about the glorified clip shows that are “That’s Entertainment” part one and two. These two documentaries (and we use that word loosely) are what inspired us to check out these MGM musicals, starring two of the lovely ladies who are featured so prominently in both, Judy Garland and Esther Williams.

Also discussed: Our favorite musicals, and 1940’s “I Love You Again,” starring William Powell and Myrna Loy.

If you’re an iTunes person, you can find us here. And if you like what you are hearing, then leave a review in the iTunes store. That would be a rad thing to do.

Also, you can find Old Movies, New Beer on Instagram now. Follow us. The photos of our beer look good enough to drink.

Meet Me In St. Louis

Bathing Beauty

During the podcast, David was trying to remember the name of a movie and an actor we saw in “That’s Entertainment.” It was Bobby Van, and the film was “Small Town Girl.”

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.

Be sure to subscribe to through iTunes. Here’s to plain speaking and clear understanding.

The Bishop’s Wife, The Man Who Came To Dinner and Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale

Cheers! We apologize for the podcast delay. We both had colds, and no one wants to listen to two people drunk on NyQuil talking about old movies on a podcast. Wait a second … *buys domain*

In this week’s installment we’re getting our holiday spirit on. We are drinking Anchor Steam’s Christmas Ale 2014 and 2011, and we’re talking about “The Bishop’s Wife” (1947), starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young, David Niven and Monty Woolley, and “The Man Who Came To Dinner” (1942), starring Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan and – wait for it – Monty Woolley. That’s right. It’s a Monty Woolley double feature. It’s a Christmas miracle!

And yes, the podcast is available on iTunes.

Flash Gordon and Green Flash Brewing’s Le Freak


Cheers! In this podcast we talk about “Flash Gordon” (1980), starring Sam J. Jones, Melody Anderson, Topol, Timothy Dalton, Max Von Sydow, an amazing soundtrack by Queen and some weirdos in rubber lizard masks. That’s right, “Flash Gordon,” not to be confused with “Flesh Gordon.” Although, we talk about that one a little bit, too. While all the other sci-fi movies around that time were taking space pretty seriously, “Flash Gordon” was doing the opposite. Discuss.

Cat People, The Uninvited and Speakeasy Syndicate No. 2

In our inaugural episode, we are drinking Syndicate No. 2 from Speakeasy in San Francisco talking about “Cat People” (1942) and “The Uninvited” (1944).
