The #BarryBullockHour goes NUCLEAR! Or at least Big Dog does, as a swathe of technical issues plague the start of recording down in the Mornington Peninsula Dog Pound. But has it sparked an idea that might end the mobile phone charger for good??
Eventually it all kicks off with a round of outstanding individual beer choices. Cal embarks on a change of career. Eric once again finds a way to shoehorn VB into the conversation. And not for the first time, Kieran rages at rugby league.
All this and much more on #Episode51 of the #BarryBullockHour. In their fifties now, but no less mallow.
September 1, 2021
It's the FIFTIETH EPISODE of the #BarryBullockHour and we return to the digital realm, dressed to the nines and just as many beers deep. It's a celebration! A milestone! And we're not going to let a little pandemic stop us from having an absolute ripper!
Kieran kicks things off with a 50th-themed quiz. Question one: how many fun facts are there about the number fifty? Answer: none!
Cal unveils a lockdown-appropriate #GoldenSpatula, Eric takes us down the spiral staircase for another installment of #DrEricsScienceCorner, and Big Dog puts a beloved Australian children's entertainment group squarely in the crosshairs. Cats, dogs, time travel, and slandering The Wiggles. What more could you want from a fifty-minute slice of podcasting madness!

It's episode forty-nine of #TheBarryBullockHour coming to you LIVE from the Princes Park Carlton Bowls Club! Yes, that's right, after years of threatening do it we finally get the microphone down to the bowls club for a spot of bowls chat. The only catch? Plenty of chat, but no bowls.
Callum places a box on the table and asks the age-old question #WhatsInTheBox?
Kieran places the Sourade Berry Blast Sour from Wayward Brewing, and the Iced Faux-Vo Berry Coconut Sour from Stomping Ground on the table and asks "Aren't these delicious?"
Eric places a dubiously-notated piece of paper on the table and asks "What is Australia's favourite beverage?"
It's the craft beer podcast with big brews, and big issues, and rarely has an episode been so locked-in on both. In forty-nine we ask the big questions! And hopefully find some big answers.

It's #BarryBullockHour 48, which finds us out in the wild, and back on the beers!
The fearsome foursome assemble at 2 Brothers Brewing in Moorabbin, a month late, but worth the wait! A brief discussion on Cal's low-fi navigation methodology leads to Kieran getting badly lost in the north of Japan. The adult themes continue as Big Dog picks a bone with a certain adult entertainment festival. And Cal kicks off a bold new challenge section, with Big Dog and Eric ready to square up. But what will the punishments be if they fail? Kieran's mysteriously big bag may hold the answer!

A delightful planned trip south of the river to sample the delicious nectar of 2 Brothers Brewing in Moorabbin becomes a mere fantasy, as Melbourne relapses once again in its dangerous battle with lockdown addiction. We take once again to Zoom to podcast from the comfort of our own homes.
After last episode's train station quiz Cal once again slips into the shoes of the late Alex Trebek to play quizmaster. Is Eric still a true American? Is he now a true Australian? And a disasterous showing from Kieran could see his New Zealand passport revoked. A lot is at stake when you know ASIO is listening!
Eric hits you with the latest round of #NewBrewsYouCanUse to finish put the exclamation point on other cracking #BarryBullockHour.

Episode 46 of the #BarryBullockHour is here and it's a beaut! Fueled by a delicious array of beers from Ferntree Gully's Little Brew, Cal kicks off proceedings with a controversial Melbourne train station quiz. Kieran has a bone to pick with April 1st. And Eric rounds out the episode by trying to restore the Barry Bullock Hour's reputation as a serious beer podcast but delving into some of wonderous technology from the world of beer. But will the so-called "science lab" live up to its hype??
All this and so much more!
April 1, 2021
The renaissance of the #BarryBullockHour continues! In person and on the hoon, episode 45 is ripe with #LoungeEnergy, political satire, and swashbuckling tales of adventure!
Cal sets the scene with a time-bending philosophical question, but things go quickly awry when John Travolta (as a conversation piece) enters the conversation.
Eric's looming citizenship test sends us down some dangerous satirical alleyways, and the episode finishes off with some important questions about politicians and their drinking habits.
It's a heady cocktail of beer and chat, and it's just what you need to kick off your Easter weekend!

We're back with the second half of our boozy reunion - a three-hour recording session where we got stuck into the GABS mixed 24-pack and has ourselves quite the time!
Part two kicks off with controversy, a beer with a show-stopping smell brings proceedings quite literally to a halt. Surely a new contender for #AustraliasWorstBeer wouldn't be found in the Top 100 countdown?? Surely not. But the unnamed stinker momentarily unsettles everything with its offensive nose.
We right the ship by getting down to the big topic of the afternoon: FIGHTING! Good old fashioned Russell Crowe fighting around the world. The fists might not be flying, but the stories certainly do!
And the episode finishes with another outstanding round of #NewBrewNewsYouCanUse before we agree that we've had too much beer and it's probably time for bed!
February 4, 2021
It took the best part of nine months but the #BarryBullockHour is finally back in one room and #BackOnTheBeers! And what better way to celebrate than with a mighty beer box - the mixed 24-pack from the GABS Hottest 100. Twenty-four delicious craft beers and three men? Now that's a recipe for proper old-school BBH carnage.
And speaking of nine months, where's the Big Dog? Notable by his absence, we call in for the #BigDogBabyBulletin, as number two is imminent.
A Hungry Jack's glass hustle. #NewBrewNewsYouCanUse. Bones and golden spatulas a plenty! A Barry Bullock Hour the way it used to be! And not a zoom window in sight.

All pretences that 2021 is going to be different to 2020 are dashed immediately, as a touch of the sniffles send the Minnesota Thunder and the Bullock once again to arena of Zoom to drink some big brews and talk about the big issues.
A broad recount of December's social activities are up first, with cycling escapades and some very dull, very exciting test cricket. Then, in the Big Dog's absence, a confession of sorts from the unlikeliest of sources. The very conversation that spurned the creation of the #BarryBullockHour makes a resurgence: but is the infamous story of the #DoubleDip built on a lie??
All this, plus another round-up of the freshest beers going around with #NewBrewNewsYouCanUse volume three!
