LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) PODCAST SERIES

LGB BLACK

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) is the weekly craft beer and movie podcast series with veteran film critic Cole Smithey. For its first 100 episodes, Millennial filmmaker Mike Lacy was Cole's co-host. Now the podcast series features Cole with a different co-host each and every week to copiously consume international politics and culture through the prism of a single film and a different craft beer.

Naturally, Cole or the guest brings out a special craft beer appropriate (in any arcane way) to the film we've picked to discuss. We take a minute to talk about the beer we're drinking for the event to celebrate the brewery and the beer.
