Katie has the hook up on beers from Guam, so Steve and Adam are assisting in the drinking of Guam beers. They make fun of someone throwing a hissy fit, recap Beers of the Burgh, and drop the 411 on upcoming homebrew events. Then it's Guam facts from Adam and Katie, plus Katie's own experiences in Guam. Finally, they play a game of Is It A Beer or Is It A Band to appease the festival gods of Bonnaroo and Firefly. Bomberman Tournament is the reference title this week, because Guam rhymes with two things and there was never Calmerman 64.
