    Well, we figured that that there just weren't enough pinball podcasts out there today and there just absolutely had to be one more. This one, has a little bit of a twist where we also talk about homebrew.

    mavantix (aka Maverick) is a walking encyclopedia of homebrew, and has an unbelievable basement brewery! He also has been bitten by the pinball bug not too long ago.

    knockerlover (Myself) am a full-on pinball addict, but I've taken more to the restoration, fixing, and technical side of things.. although I also like to work on my rules knowledge and flipper skills too!

    Our approach to this podcast is.. well, to have fun.. and just talk about the normal stuff we would talk about.. only for you to hear.

    "Pints and Pinball" live on the itunes store and available on soundcloud.

    That guy Maverick drinks and rambles a lot! Haha. Hope you guys enjoy the show! Let us know if there's any topics you want to hear about, beer, pinball, or whatever!

    Thanks for the heads up. Despite what people say, I CAN'T get enough pinball podcasts. So adding this one to the queue!

    #4 3 years ago

    looking forward to episode 3.

    Two of my favorite hobbies!

    Just wish there were as many pins as there are breweries here in San Diego.

    I listen to podcasts all the time. Thanks for this, I just subscribed.

    #6 3 years ago

    What I'd like to see is pins IN the breweries here! Maybe knockerlover and I can start that trend locally.

    Quoted from MacJedi:

    Agreed! Thanks for the knowledge and advice. Makes me want to swig and flip (and repeat), and tear my Maverick apart and go over all the details, but she's playing good at the moment and I don't want the down time. Is this why you need two? Great listenin. Thanks for this. More please?

    Also, I've only played a pin in one brewery locally. Walking Dead at Thorn St. Not there anymore. It was a good drain monster and kicked the crap out of the newbie hipsters. We have brewpubs where there is an abundance of craft taps, good grub, an always changin chalkboard of the beers, and sometimes games and pinball.

    Haha, once you get 2 pins, then you get 5, then more, at least that's my experience! It does help to have multiples if you are gonna take one down for work, but if it's playing good then keep it clean and waxed and keep playing it!

    My Maverick was down for about 2 months while I did the top side teardown and bottom side tune up because I just worked on it casually when I had a few free hours, and it was the first one I had torn down that much so I labeled/bagged everything, took video and pictures, etc. I did all new rubbers, removed all playfield parts and plastics and cleaned everything including star posts, plastics, ramps, etc, replaced the plastic ramp with NOS, cleaned/waxed the PF, replaced all the drop targets including new springs, cleaned all drop target mechs, removed and cleaned all PF circuit boards, cleaned all mechanisms and new coil sleeves in every coil, rebuilt flippers, all new light bulbs... it turned out pretty nice and clean; plays great!

    So, one of the lessons learned recording the podcast so far is to probably not start recording after excessive pints and pinball. Mav and I got together last week and sampled a few different beers and played a few games.. I was drunk setting up the recording equipment, and my headphones were upstairs.. I made a rookie lazy drunken mistake and said.. ehhh fuck it dude, I dont need the headphones.. I went to edit today and while our post pints and pinball antics were pretty funny, the tracks are unlistenable because I had the gain up to high on both mics and they are clipping and crackling like crazy.

    So, we may have to do an ad-hoc thing before league tonight at burningman's house

    Damn rookies..... ... .......Joey
