Today on the fifth episode of Season 3 on the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the Week is Focal Banger By The Alchemist Brewery. According to The Alchemist, "They strive to offer the best hop experience that they can". The beer is brewed with mosaic and citra hops, contains 7% ABV.
Brew Advocates rating is 100/100 and considers Focal Banger a "world class" beer. Focal Banger is a heavily coveted beer in the New England area and is actually hard to come by. We decided that although we would not travel across state lines to pick up the beer, if the opportunity presents itself we would most definitely purchase again. (Even though Kev would consider other options first).
Rob's Rating: 8.9/10
Kev's Rating: 7.8/10
After rating Focal Banger, we started discussing "body shaming" via the internet due to Billie Eilish trending on twitter. The fact that whatever you post no matter who you are there will always be someone to comment negatively. No matter how famous you are, you will be scrutinized.
Following that we segue into random ads that appear on our devices and social media sites almost immediately after we engage in some kind of activity with the product. Somewhat after that we somehow get to discussing the proper order, (as a guy) on washing yourself in the shower. However, we couldn't end this episode without talking about our "once in a lifetime" experience with an Uber driver.
