Hosted by V.I.A.’s own Adam Nanji, Tip of the Tongue pits Vancouver Is Awesome’s Bob Kronbauer and Lindsay William-Ross against Michael Kissinger and John Kurucz of the Vancouver Courier in a head to head battle where the questions were ripped from the headlines.

Up for grabs: 24 Postmark beers and two bottles of wine from the Vancouver Urban Winery, courtesy this week’s sponsor, Postmark Brewing. Not to mention ALL THE GLORY.
