Episode 84 Show Notes

Thank you for joining us for the We Like Drinking show episode 84. In this episode we’ll be getting holier than thou with our Trappistes Ale tasting, so crack open your beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking.

Last month we tried wines for under $10 a bottle, and I’m still angry about the crappy winky wine I chose to suffer through while these two suckled from the glorious under $10 teet of Espana.
