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.


Kind Hearts And Coronets (1949)

The Lavender Hill Mob (1951)

The Ladykillers (1955)

Batman v Superman and Flying Dog Bloodline Orange Ale

Cheers! In honor of “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” coming out March 25, we decided to do our own “Batman v Superman,” Old Movies, New Beer-style. We are discussing 1966’s “Batman: The Movie,” based on the TV series, and 1978 “Superman,” starring Christopher Reeve.

Holy hops, Batman! We’re drinking Flying Dog Bloodline Orange Ale. Flying Dog, get it? Sigh. Superhero-themed beer is surprisingly difficult to find.

Do you have thoughts and feelings about comic book-based movies? Got a favorite superhero? We want to hear about it in the comments.

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.
