Introduction

What happens when you sit down with an expert in making beer, an expert in consuming beer, and an expert in buying overpriced yet ultimately unfulfilling technological toys? Bounty Hunter Banter is what; giving you your fortnightly dose of pop culture!

The premise is simple; three guys who have been mates forever share their favourite stories on all things pop culture from comic books, movies, TV shows, music, video games and board games. Along the way, a range of craft beer from around Australia and abroad will be explored, and the boys will be forced to slowly navigate the effects of intoxication while continuing to articulate their mostly ill-informed opinions. Associated with the company that brings you the perfect blend of pop culture and tasty alcoholic elixirs, Bounty Hunter Brewing Co., the latest news from Team BHB will also occasionally make it into the show in between all the verbal diarrhoea, arguments, pointless facts and one-sided arguments!

It's pretty much what they've been doing for twenty-odd years, it's just that now there's a microphone on the table recording evidence!

Episode #19 - It's DC Not Marvel!

Chris rejoins the crew to regale us with his story of bathtub woe before we launch into a range of video games, all the good comic book movie trailers being sprayed onto the Internet lately, how crap we felt the returning episodes of all the CW comic-based TV series’ were, and Pete continuously misplaces characters from one comic book company into the other…

Videos

Not enough to simply be serenaded by the dulcet tones of our smooth, gravelly and somewhat slurry voices? Things will not calm down, dear listener. They will, in fact, calm up. You've heard the episodes, now watch the video evidence of our foolishness as well! Plus you can check out all of the awesome pubs and breweries that have been crazy enough to let us in the front doors to record.

All of our Facebook Live recordings and other videos in one place - holy frozen bad guy!

Past Podcast Episodes

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

Episode #18 - The West-Ipswich Dust Bowl

In this episode we’re joined by a very good friend, Suey, who’s been asking to be on the show since we started but unfortunately has never heard an episode! Kicking off with a recap of our recent QuipLash escapades, we launch into the latest Star Wars trailer, Pete completely makes up an alternate storyline to Red Dead Redemption 2 (and gets away with it), we somehow end up talking about guns for a while, and Pete tells the story of how he was so fat he got stuck in a cave.

Beers reviewed this episode:

1) Six String Brewing Co. – Ram Stein – Märzen – 5.4%

2) Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery – Nut Brown Ale – Brown Ale – 5%

With Chris slumbering away in his bed-chamber after a late night working, Dan and Pete tackle the World 8 Grand Prix wrap-up, the new Punisher trailer, the Superman comic series that almost lost a subscription, the Discovery of a new Star Trek series and an Expanse of other pop-culture topics.

Episode #16 - High on Golden Mushrooms

In a very special episode, we record live from Pumphouse Sydney in the midst of the Pumphouse World 8 Grand Prix, a Mario Kart tournament to celebrate the launch of Bounty Hunter Brewing’s latest concoction, the World 8 Raspberry & Peach Sour.

Kidnapping various passers-by throughout the tournament, we’re honoured to have a chat with friends of the show and previous guests Alistair and James, along with Tom Pigott from Uncle Hops, Brad Bishop and his friend Mitchell, Justin from the Craft Beer Crew, the Doc himself from Doctor’s Orders, and Mark Espogino – the man who first uttered the words “Bounty Hunter Brewing”.

Beers reviewed this episode – none! We did consume an inordinate amount of World 8 and What Did You Do, Ray! throughout the episode, but no formal reviews this time around.
