This week on episode 208 of the We Like Drinking podcast we’ll
be answering questions from our listeners, sneak in a little booze
news for the new year, and we’ll be chastising a handful of our
Patreons, ‘cause they’re forcing us to drink boxed wine! So crack
open your beer, unBOX that wine, and let’s get drinking.

Panel Introductions And What Boxed Wine We’re Drinking
- Tonight we’re joined by our usual panel members, we have our
wine blogger, Jeff Solomon, our commercial brewer, John Ruyak, and
finally, I’m your host, Jeff Eckles.
- This week we are starting off the year with a tasting episode.
We tried something new this month, and immediately realized what a
mistake we’d made…..
Wine, Beer, or Pop Culture Reference
- Doley asks - Wife bought me a coravin (model 2) as a Christmas
gift. I haven’t opened it yet. Do you fellows have any
opinion as to if these things actually work? I’ve heard some
stories expressing dissatisfaction over long term preservation of
bottles. Some claim it’s good if you drain the bottle in a month or
so but they’ve used the coravin on an expensive bottle and when
they open the same bottle in a year or so the wine has gone to
shit. Any input you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
Fantasy Football Final Minute
- We have a new patron to the show. We’d love to welcome Laura K
to our little, yet growing Patreon family. Laura has joined up at
the $1 level meaning that she gets to download the show at least a
day earlier than everyone else. Plus, she now gets to spend some
time with us one extra time a month for the after party. So once
we’ve drunk enough during the show, things start to get real,
really stupid sometimes, on the after party.
That’s right it’s time to break out your phones and get that
last minute hook up with us.
Follow us on the socials, Twitter, Instagram and our
private group on Facebook known as the Tavern.
