Theraflu Flu & Sore Throat Video Review (BevNerd Ep75)

Yay, sickness!

I wanted to push out a new episode of BevNerd as soon as I could in this new year. Unfortunately, I have been sick since it’s begun. I then got the bright idea of picking up some Therflu from Walgreens. I then thought, “Hey, this sure is a beverage!” So I decided to review it. It’s definitely a beverage, has a function and a specific flavor, Apple Cinnamon.

I thought that reviewing an actual soda wouldn’t do the product justice, since my tasting ability has been lacking while my nose has been really stuffed up.

So here’s the review, maybe it will help out others during the winter funk season.

Question: What do you take for a cold/flu?

12 Days of BevNerd Christmas Raffle!

Ho, ho, hooooooooo! (Insert Hacksaw Jim Duggan)

Greetings Bevengers, Jason here. I am launching a little raffle contest to help raise funds for new and better equipment for productions. Things have been moving fast for us lately behind the scenes and I want to make sure we have the right tools for our current shows BevNerd Podcast & JBear vs. Craft Beer AND new shows that are in developmental stages.

An idea pitched to me by my fantastic wife Amanda was, “Hey Jason, we have so much extra drink and food products in our house that you’ve already reviewed. Why don’t you do a raffle contest to help raise money for things like a new laptop or camera equipment.” (more or less)


The 12 Days of BevNerd Christmas Raffle! Each day for twelve days, I will be posting on our Facebook/Twitter/Homepage a new food/drink/swag item that will be placed in the prize box! I can guarantee at LEAST 12 awesome items or more if I can cram them in there!

How to enter: See that yellow donate button on the top of Click it and donate away via PayPal/Credit Card. Each $1 donated will get you an entry! Then at the end of the contest (the week before Christmas) I will select a winner using and in order of chronological donations = what entry # you are. So you can donate all at once or sprinkle your entries throughout the contest.


On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to meeeee.

A box of Hostess Twinkies (omg, that actually fits the song lyrics)


  • Winner must live in the United States due to shipping
  • You can enter as many times as you’d like, pending you have those dolla dollas!
  • Winner will be drawn on a TBA specified date (week before Christmas)

So, I hope this goes great and we have a lot of fun doing this! I know it’s not going to raise Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars (more wrestling references) BUT I hope it can help create a dent in our expenses and stuff we need. (My dog Lulu knocked a diet cola on our laptop and fatality'ed it.)

BevNerd Show at Firehouse Subs w/ Coca-Cola Freestyle!

Creating and tasting all sorts of soda combinations is our task! What’s your favorite concoction?

The episode will be recorded on Saturday, December 17th at 3:00 pm and the location address is 552 Oxford Exchange Blvd. Oxford, AL 36203

I received a package from 52 General Store. They sent me samples of the sodas they sell on their online store for me to review. Let’s see what I got! |

¡Name That Luchador! Jarritos Winners!

The most epic of all BevNerd contests has come to a close! After five weeks of guessing masked warriors and even guessing an embarrassing storyline from my wrestling past, we have 2 winners!

The winners will get sent to them their own case of delicious, Jarritos Mexican Soda!

I had one contestant that got all 5 weeks’ of questions right. The undisputed 1st place of ¡NTL! is Liam Elmy! Congratulations!

The 2nd place winner also gets a case and I had a 4-way tie. Instead of having a Fatal Four Way to decide the runner up, I used a handy dandy random name slot machine picker. The 2nd winner is James Montgomery! Who could hold his own in a Fatal Four Way any day.

Thanks to everyone that watched my silly shows and guessed ‘rasslers.



Big Red Zero vs. Diet Big Red Blind Taste Test: This is a call back to episode 71 where Big Red Zero was initially reviewed. It didn’t get a great review and the nice folks at Big Red sent me more Big Red Zero and Diet Big Red to do a taste comparison. They assured me that the new formula tasted better. Does it? 1st taste comparison video!


Jarritos Mandarin & Tamarind Sodas Review: On this episode of BevNerd, I review the last two flavors of Jarritos Mexican Soda! I have Mandarin  Tamarind. Find out how to win a case of your own by playing ¡Name That Luchador!

The BevNerd is going to MomoCon in Atlanta!

Whoa, CAGs, things just got 67% more serious in here. Why?

I’m excited to announce that I will be presenting a BevNerd panel at MomoCon in Atlanta, Georgia! The convention is on March 16th-18th, and more information can be found at respectively. So to you southern CAGs, if this anime, comics and gaming (…) event is something you’d want to go to, it just got better(?).

I’ll be there with my wife, MannaSea and pal Jbear street team-ing it up, hopefully giving out freebie sodas, energy drinks and snacks during the event. You also will be able to try my handmade, mildly famous, BevNerd Soda Pop Jelly! I will also be working on having some little swag items, too. You can also meet me.

The panel date/time is TBA right now.

With that being said…holy !! Never could have imagined. I’ll say it again, without the blog section, there would have never been a BevNerd show.

VIDEO: BevNerd Podcast LIVE! at MomoCon 2013!

I survived my 2nd MomoCon in Atlanta, Georgia at the Hilton!

I was fortunate to have a full BevNerd crew with Joel, Jonathan, and Jennifer. We totally rocked it this weekend! I want to thank our proud sponsors, Aloic, Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky, Wired Waffles, and Cocaine Energy for helping us get to the ATL and we had a great time passing out their delish products to event attendees.

I had the utmost pleasure in hosting another live panel/BevNerd Show on Saturday afternoon in the Grand Ballroom. Thanks to the large crowd that packed the house and had a great time! I do have an edited video of the live show and I’d love to share it with you.
