Beer League Talk

Recording weekly out of a beer closet in Western Canada, Beer League Talk is the podcast for hockey players of all walks of life. Nick, April and Dani are uniting the hockey community by covering the hard-hitting topics that matter to beer leaguers: beer, ringers, tournaments, beer, borrowing too much tape, that guy who never washes his gear ... have we mentioned hockey players enjoy beer? The aim of all this is to bring together like-minded hockey players who want to have a good time and share some laughs. We love to put the spotlight on great events that connect the hockey community.

The May long weekend just meant more time for hockey! Nick was in Calgary covering the ASHL Nationals and Dani ran off to Canmore to play in another draft tournament. They came back with more locker room stories to tell and a few videos for you. BLT even has its first voicemail question to answer, asking about what to do when you just watched one teammate get the boot and now you think you might be in the crosshairs.

BLT was invited to cover and play in the Stanley Cup of Beer League Talk. We did what any self-respecting podcast would do and that's invite our listeners to come play with us. Here is our experience at the Walleye Chop. 

May 9, 2018

It's finally hot here, and BLT has a serious case of spring fever with all the tourneys coming up. Walleye Chop is in a few days, and we're going stir crazy. Which means we may have derailed this episode with poop talk and boys peeing on each other for laughs. Dani is terrified of the new div her team moved to. Nick hates little girls. April didn't have any presents for us so why even mention her.

Meet Evan F Moore. Evan is a digital media creator at the Chicago Sun Times… and also a fellow beer leaguer. Evan wrote an article about the growing diversity in hockey. You can find it here: Black hockey players excel on ice despite history of racism, lack of rinks in Chicago. 

 

Nick and Evan chat about the article, Evan’s beer league career, and how we as adult hockey players can help growing the diversity in our great sport. 

 

Follow Evan on Twitter @evanFmoore  and give us your thoughts on this interview.

Join a Dani-less & April-less Nick as he teams up Brian from BLT's goalie show, Crease Keepers. The boys chat about their trip at the Heros cup hockey tournament in Boston, the joys playing 7 games in 30 hours, and Nick gets a real goalie's opinion on rental goalies.

Apr 18, 2018

Nick, April and Dani are back from Nashville and you’re darn tootin’ they’ve got stories to tell. Their plan to podcast from a drunken pedal tavern yielded interesting results… They played a little hockey, some people got injured, some people lost all their games, and some people took their rage out in a new segment called Hostile Hockey Interviews. The crew talks their bad roommate experience plus, the girls took some pro hockey ringers to a women’s tourney and Nick isn’t happy about it!

Apr 4, 2018

Beer leaguers around the world rejoiced this week as one of our own made it to the big leagues. Of course this just propels our own delusions of one day playing pro. After some tourney talk, we get to the real reason you’re tuning in: Nick’s diet cola blind taste test challenge to prove he can pick out the vile atrocity that is Diet Coke any day.

Mar 29, 2018


In this week's show, the fans really give us what we need - the love and affection we so desperately crave. Lots of viewer questions and reviews to share as we give you all some mediocre-at-best hockey advice! Plus: new tournaments in the works, the perils of having someone else pack your bag, and a daunting challenge we throw Nick's way that could literally kill him (unless he's faking his diabetes).

By Eagle we mean the nicest Eagle hockey gloves in the world!

Episode 133: BLT Lake Louise Outdoor Classic – featuring Dirty Mike and the Boys

It finally happened! Our inaugural Beer League Talk tournament went down over the weekend in the breathtaking mountains of Lake Louise, Alberta. We managed to mash together hockey, ODR and FREE BEER to create one epic experience – and we have way too many stories to tell now. We couldn’t resist inviting our Westy winners to chat on the episode, on location at the tourney. Let’s just say that wherever Dirty Mike and the Boys go, we can guarantee it’ll be a good time.

Episode 132 - Jagr League Talk
Sit back and bask in the tales of one of the most recognizable fans in the NHL. Trevor can usually be found with his pack of Travelling Jagrs, making TV appearances or even hanging with #68 himself. We loved chatting about his growing list of "once in a lifetime experiences" that all started by getting drunk in Vegas with his friends. Plus, hear from our Crease Keepers, check out our first BLT correspondent interview, get an update on April's road to Lake Louise in net, and Jay pumps out some fast takes on the Oilers and cheering to lose.

Feb 27, 2018

As a woman of her word, April straps on the pads to try her hand as a goalie in preparation for the upcoming BLT Outdoor Classic in Lake Louise. Hitting the ODR with Nick and Dani proved to be somewhat eye-opening. Our Crease Keeper buddy Brian is back with a new rant and Jay is pumping out his chump-tactic opinions as the looming trade deadline fuels lots of NHL moves.

Feb 26, 2018

Nick celebrates his birthday doing what he loves, podcasting! Oh, also spending time with his family or something… He is gifted with another raging goalie segment from our favourite crease keepers, and the Two-Pump Chump Jay is back with big predictions about the cup and, spoiler alert: Iginla is the key. Plus, some chatter on the aftermath of the USA victory over Canada in the women’s Olympic final, and the crew throws a curveball with a positive segment about great sportsmanship.

Feb 26, 2018

Lots of things to get the blood boiling on this episode, including hearing about a garbage GM who stole from his own team. Then we see our goalie friends get fired up on their new segment, Tales from the Creasekeepers. We couldn’t contain our excitement as a few more segments made their debut, including something for our fantasy hockey players, and some hard-hitting opinions from BLT’s Jay in his bit: Two Pump Chump.

Feb 13, 2018

Super Bowl fanfare in Philly had our hosts asking the question - is there anything you’re so passionate about that you’d eat poop? You might be able to guess what it is for Nick. Plus, fanfare is heating up for the BLT Classic as it grows closer and is officially SOLD OUT! Now one of the BLT crew may make their goaltending debut in Lake Louise. Hopefully they start stretching now. Lots of talk of new, better ideas for the show - send us your segment pitch!

Feb 6, 2018

This episode is so good it doesn't need a description. Just a note: The BLT crew got brand new BLT jerseys. They are awesome!

Want to play hockey in Japan?

It’s the fourth week of the year so time to check in on our New Year’s resolutions! Ok, just keep your expectations low… maybe it’s better to just set some 2018 hockey goals instead of these dumb resolutions? We jump into some exciting announcements for destination tournaments on the horizon. Plus, we discuss the worst jobs we ever quit (hint: none of them were working in hockey!)

Presents and surprises galore on this week’s episode! We have surprise special guest videos, surprise belated Christmas presents, surprise Nick being quiet for a little bit of the show. You’ll have to see it to believe it. Ok, we know we won’t shut up about our first ever BLT team tournament but Montana is just around the corner and we’re pumped. And for the concerned Twitter follower who wrote in this week, YES we are still doing the show! We appreciate your concern.

Feb 2, 2018

Happy New Year from BLT! We’re back for 2018 and ready to jump into the second half of the season with exuberance, effervescence, and many more words we don’t understand. The crew made a few resolutions they’re more than likely to break. More importantly, they couldn’t be more excited for the first appearance of the Beer League Talk team, later this month in Kalispell, Montana.

Feb 2, 2018

Nick, April and Dani crawl their way to the finish line with their last show of 2017 – bruised, battered but not broken. And that’s just from playing against each other at hockey a few days ago. Find out who came out on top and popped the most points. They air a few grievances and get excited for all the tournaments ahead in 2018 – including the first-ever BLT Outdoor Classic!

Jan 24, 2018

Our heroes regroup in the beer closet after a frustrating weekend of hockey interrupted by Christmas parties. When attempts to force teammates to reevaluate their priorities failed, short benches were the only option. To get more into the holiday spirit, they turned to what hockey gifts they'd love to see under the tree this year.

Jan 9, 2018

Fresh off a plane from California, Nick dashed back to the beer closet to make sure we don’t miss an episode for you lovely fans. Or is it because he can’t miss an opportunity to talk about another A Final win? We may never know. Christmas came early on BLT as a giant package made its way to our hosts – much bigger than April’s box. And the crew talks about their hockey pet peeves, following up on a Question of the Day Dani posted last week #WarriorVIP

Jan 9, 2018

The BLT crew is back with plenty to rant about. Their irate GM personas come out in full force with sub player etiquette getting the blood boiling lately. And no one is surprised when Nick asks if there's ever a time he's allowed to run a goalie. Dani answers to some fans who called her out on our last episode for tracking her plus-minus.

Nick and Dani are back from the Phoenix Draft Tournament, somehow still tanless – but at least not winless. They got to meet some fans of the show (now FRIENDS of the show!) as the Westy hurdles towards the final championship selection. Nick flies out to surprise the winning team Monday. Plus, the crew’s recent games spurred chats about integrity, bribes and team building.
