Bois & Bar Talk

Oct 13, 2021

On the 13th episode of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the Week is Flexural Strength. We have a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy drink on our hands, not something that we've ever heard of. Flexural Strength is made by Reverie Brewing Company out of Newtown, CT.

Flexural Strength is a slightly hoppy ale, medium in color, and has an ABV of 7.7%. We found this beer tucked way in the back of our beer stash. While we never heard of this brewery before and any beers that they have, this was surprised us. It's complemented by peanut butter with a malty taste to it. Overall, we embraced this delightful surprise with a positive review because it's repeatably drinkable. Well done!

How We Rated Flexural Strength

  • Rob’s Rating: 7.7/10
  • Kev’s Rating: 8.7/10

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.

Here’s how the episode goes down with Flexural Strength.

Rating People

We're baffled how humans rate each other whether it's based on looks or personality. We score humans on a scale of 1 through 10. Your whole existence! Rated with this bare bones scale. Would you want to know what other people are rating you if you could?

Throwback Segment!

We went back to old-school "Would You Rather?" questions. It's been a while since we did this.

Would you rather not eat fruit again? Or would you rather not eat meat ever again?

Would you rather give up Chinese food? Or would you rather give up Mexican food?

Movie Plot Idea

As the Flexural Strength was flowing through us, we got even more creative. How about this for a movie plot? The main character could manipulate the dreams of others. Similar to Freddy in a way. But it's much more subtle for a super power. You can influence the decisions of others and control their dreams! This spun off into thinking about the subconscious and how you can condition it.
