The Beer Metal Show

Dec 2017

BeerMetalShow 1 | Craft Beer Reviews + Extreme Metal

December 8, 2017


In late October 2017, a new idea came to mind. This idea was to put my reviews up in a podcast. I purchased some inexpensive equipment to start off with, since I am a cheap mother fucker, and I am good at making cheap shit work like luxurious shit! It was definitely a lot easier to talk about a beer over a microphone rather than typing out what I was trying to say in paragraph form for the blog. I will still put up a written review here and there for those that are not reviewed on the podcast, but majority of my beer reviews will now be talked about. I hope you still follow my Craft Beer & Metal journey, and click the link to the podcast. Please share it, comment, like it, all that good shit.

**NOTE: Since the editing was already completed, I just left it as is, but the name of the show changed from BeerMetalDude's Craft Beer Reviews to The Beer Metal Show.
