Bois & Bar Talk

Jul 28, 2021

Today, on the sixth episode of Bois & Bar Talk Season 4, we are drinking Golden Messenger by Hog River Brewing out of Hartford, CT. It's the first time that we tried Hog River out as we don't know much about the brewery.

Golden Messenger is a Kölsch-style ale. We've been on a kick with German beers this season. It has a 4.8% ABV and has a lighter style. This beer has German-style hops, malt, and has a balanced taste.

This one had mixed ratings between the two of us. Kev wasn't much of a fan and would rather have a Bud Light if he was going for a light beer. Rob enjoyed the citrus/pineapple hints of flavor and like how it tasted for such a light drink. You can also find Golden Messenger for pretty cheap. The four-pack costed around $9.

How We Rated Golden Messenger

  • Rob’s Rating: 7.4/10
  • Kev’s Rating: 5.8/10 

We kick off the show reminding everyone to check out the website to check out all of our episode posts. We do show notes and ratings for every beer and every episode.

Show Notes


We discussed our only beach day of the summer so far. During the trip we brought a sophisticated, giant cooler. This thing could do it all. It even had a hot dog making feature and has a built-in radio signal that scares away seagulls.

Why do some beaches always have to have strict rules?

What would aliens think if the first place they visited on Earth was a crowded beach?

Cotton Candy

We stopped for 2 minutes during the episode for a cotton candy break.

Thrilling Activities

We discussed parasailing and roller coasters. It's weird how kids aren't nearly as scared as adults when it comes to taking risks.


Kev went to church but couldn't stand it. Literally, he doesn't like to stand and kneel constantly!
