Ep. 60 - Face Off: Coors Banquet vs Batch 19

Episode

“The best audience is intelligent, well-educated and a little drunk.” — Alben W. Barkley

We're taking on a classic beer and a classic movie about beer: we're pairing Smokey and the Bandit with Coors' Banquet versus their "craft" beer Batch 19.
