CARNAL KNOWLEDGE — MIKE NICHOLS w/ Guest Co-Host Adam Zuniga

New York actor Adam Zuniga (Bierleichen Das Movie) was kind enough to bring a 2015 bottle of Firestone Walker PARABOLA IMPERIAL STOUT to share for our discussion of Mike Nichols's classic CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, starring Art Garfunkel, Jack Nicholson, Candice Bergen, and Ann Margaret. How much did we love this beer and this movie? Have a seat at the Big Feast and find out! Bon appetite.

WITHNAIL AND I — BRUCE ROBINSON

A British cult film classic seems like just the thing to break Cole and Mike out of their hangover from SHOCKTOBER! Sadly, Mike fell down in the Craft Beer department so we're pretending to drink Stella Artois for our lively discussion. Get out the cutlery, you'll need at least five pieces.

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) PODCAST SERIES

LGB BLACK

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) is the weekly craft beer and movie podcast with Gen X veteran film critic Cole Smithey and Millennial filmmaker Mike Lacy.

Together, we copiously consume international politics and culture through the prism of a single film and a different craft beer each week.

Naturally we choose a special beer that we think reflects an aspect of the film we, or our frequent guest co-hosts, choose to dish about under the influence of a delicious craft beer. 

Anchor Steam, Ballast Point, Brooklyn Brewery, Dogfish Head, Empire, Firestone Walker, Flying Dog, Founders, Green Flash, Grim, Industrial Arts, Left Hand, Ommegang, Revolution, Rogue Nation, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Two Brothers, Unibroue, and Victory are just a few of the breweries we've featured on the podcast. 

Bon appetite!
