Cave of Thrones Season 6, Episode 5- Hold the GODDAMN Door


Welcome back to "Cave of Thrones!!!" We loved it so much the first time, we decided to do another special GoT episode. And this time, we convinced CraigMakk to let it out the door without any editing. So don't blame him if you hate it.

 This episode was a total mindfuck, so CraigMakk & Serious Jest needed to talk it out. There may or may not have been tears involved...you'll just need to listen for yourself. After the revelation of Hodor's tragic backstory, the half-Navy Seal baller status and half-small town hall meeting status of the Kinsmoot, and the full (for now) extent of Bran's power, you'll probably need a drink too. So come for the recap, stay for the insight, and run from the insanity of Live from the ManCave's newest "Cave of Thrones" special edition!


Beer of the Show: Ellicottville Brewing's Chocolate Cherry Bomb Imperial Stout, because only a powerful beer can help you handle feelings.

Cave of Thrones Special Edition: Back in BLACK

Welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!" In this very special edition, the fellas celebrate the most amazing invention of all time: the Internet. And they don't even talk about porn....much.

For the very first time, CraigMakk & Serious Jest utilize the Internet to do a satellite LftMC to discuss and full-spoiler review Game of Thrones, Season 6 Episode 2 moments after it ended. And because they're never content with adding just ONE monkey wrench to their lives, they also bring on their first ever remote third mic, "Black" Pedro Hernandez from the world-famous podcast "Black & White with You and Me." And some shit goes down, and we're not just talking about the beer.

As usual, CraigMakk will explain why it's okay to enjoy watching a naked man lay on a table for the better part of an hour; Jest will compare the cast of GoT to our beloved president (Sorry, Obama! He's Peruvian, he can't help it!); and newcomer Black Pedro blows them all away with his discussion about White Walkers and climate change. Trust me...it's as epic as it is insane. So sit back, grab a beer, and welcome back to "Cave of Thrones!!!"

Beer of the Show: Since it was remote, we each chose our own:



CraigMakk: Broken Goblet's Carle the Great Russian Imperial Stout (aged in Glenfiddich Scotch Barrels), a strong and powerful stout fit only for a king...or a drunk.


Serious Jest: Sixpoint Brewery Resin, a powerful hoppy, citrusy, and piney brew, all channeled into one vessel, not unlike our favorite reanimated Westerosi.


Black Pedro: Golden Road Brewing Get Up Offa That Brown, a balanced and drinkable brown ale, one that will allow you to keep your head instead of losing it.

Episode 23 Part Two - The Madness Continues!

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" Just when you thought it was safe to jump back into your brackets...the ManCave will ruin your eardrums with bad jokes and nerdy conversation! Be afraid...be very afraid. There's still a lot more noise where this episode came from.

In this episode, CraigMakk will desperately try to make his irrational love of Batman seem totally normal and acceptable; Jest will do his very best to convince you that he feels bad about mocking death while doing it nonetheless; and the fellas will argue about comic book characters as if they are actually real people waiting patiently by the phone to find out if they won instead of it all being a meaningless discussion between two nerds.

Get ready to enter into the cage match of Round Two in the Superhero/Villain Madness bracket, and not everyone will survive. Perhaps not even you. But the guys also dig deep into other topics such as the various forms of Walking Dead; money-grubbing NBA jerseys; the passing of both a musical icon/lover of all things purple and a terrifying wrestler/terrifying home video porn star; make uninformed and unwanted suggestions on who should play Young Han Solo; and much, much more. All while getting unnecessarily drunk in the middle of the night. And this is just part two. Imagine what the rest sounds like. Or better yet, don't, Trust me. So sit back, grab a drink, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"



 Beer of the Show: Still more Ommegang Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale, because why change now?
