  1. From "Ken Wardle" :

    Nice ep, sours are one of the few styles I haven’t had a lot of but want to try more of. Have a bottle of Brux in the cellar from when it first was released that I want to break out. Really enjoy the show and congrats on the new baby.

  2. From "Rick" :

    Good episode! I will say though that I am starting to miss the Max noises/references from the old “set”. I especially appreciate the subtle marketing in the background of this particular episode (in the form of the PBR sitting under the Sierra Nevada sign).
