In this beer-only episode we tried Delirium Nocturnum by Brouwerij Huyghe, Southern Tier’s Pumking and Samuel Adams Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout.

Colin & I were joined by Chris Rohling to drink some Gulden Draak and talk about our favourite albums of 2012. Brett was also there for a little bit. Belgian beer was basically the only thing we could find that was both available to Chris in Minnesota and us in Winnipeg and Gulden Draak seemed like a good idea. This episode is our first with episode notes, which is helpful because we covered a lot of ground.
00:00 – Introductions. I’m hosting *shudder*

44:15 – It’s time for my choices! 3. alt-J – An Awesome Wave. 2. Ellie Goulding – Synthetica. 1. Metric – Synthetica

This is the last episode of 2012! We’re bringing a few small but significant changes to Pub Chat over the next few months including a new intro, episode notes and a regular release schedule. Finally, we’ve got an array of new guests lined up for 2013, so it should be a great year.
