Futurama Episode Review – How the West was 1010001 and Beer Review: The Shining (Foam Brewers)

Promotional still from How the West was 1010001

Week Three – Episode Three

Well, this isn’t exactly a “Futurama Monday” article – though we still did cover a Futurama beer for Futurama Monday – Beer Review: Fing-longer (Turning Point Beer) – and technically I am a week behind (this week’s episode was Parasites Regained and was Season 11 Episode 4); but here is our video review of Season 11 Episode 3 – How the West was 1010001.

Theres been a lot of changes here – one, I have a new job (working at a local brewery rather than the casino) and two, I have four daughters – one of which just turned 16 and the other is nine months and just about ready to walk. So time is on a bit of a limited scale.

We are still pumping out a ton of content though, so have no fear about that. I might add (on top of doing the Futurama episode reviews) video reviews of the Ahsoka show as well. We’ll see. Premier for Ahsoka is next week (August 23rd) and they are airing two episodes at kick off.

My beer for this episode’s video review is ‘The Shining’ by Foam Brewers. I want to give a shout out to Emily for gifting me the beer. Thanks Em!

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
