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.
