The crew heads back to town with their lair master and has a little run in with the red brands, resulting in some death and a very questionable "interrogation technique". They then try a nice little vanilla porter and finally head off to the titular mines.

Well the party has found Gildor, but there are a bunch of nasties around him. No problem. OK, maybe some problems if no one can hit anything. In the combat beers we try an interesting offering from New Belgium.

Bob tries a bunch of beers and talks to some great folks from Odell and Great Divide Breweries.

Is that really Durp's Father? Is he really a King? Where are monkey and singer? Is there any meat here?
