Beers and Birds


Mike Wallis

Mike "Pink Floyd" Wallis (@BeersandBirdsMike) has been an Eagles fan since 96', after watching a thrilling takedown of the Cowboys capped off by a James Willis interception lateraled to Troy Vincent and taken back 103 yards in the final seconds. Mike fancies himself the pod game-master. He appreciates a wide range of beers, but particularly enjoys Belgian-style brews. He has the strongest Untappd game on the pod by far.


Sean Cottrell

A husband and father of two awesome kids located in Philadelphia, PA, Sean spends his days managing risks for a large insurance company and early mornings/nights doing what he loves: watching and writing about the Eagles & football. The NFL draft, Temple University, Philly sports, and quantum mechanics are his passions.


Brad Weaver

Brad Weaver is a four for four Philadelphia sports enthusiast with a special passion for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brad has been a craft brew aficionado since a morning-after Miller Lite revolt caused an ugly divorce between himself and domestic beer. Cheers!
