<![CDATA[Episode 17: Donut Miss This Episode!]]> Fri, 18 May 2018 17:12:10 GMT 1:25:12 5aff096a61e30b211e0cbcc3 yes full Welcome to our first (of many) collaboration episodes with our friends, Tim and Eddie from the podcast Vinylly Friday! This week, we're drinking a beer very close to our friends' hearts, the Walter's Jelly Donut by New York Beer Project! (They provided the beer and recording space, and we provided actual jelly donuts.) In addition, we discuss important topics, such as the mullet of beers and whether a dumpling is a hat or not. We hope this episode is a (donut) hole in one!


To get the full experience of our collaboration, make sure to listen to the episode of Vinylly Friday that we star on, in which we discuss the Tragically Hip album, Day for Night!

The Pan-Am had everything: state-of-the-art architecture, food and beer, a midway, music, crime and scandal... all that good stuff. (For this reason, expect future Pan-Am episodes, because we can only fit so much into one episode.) In addition, we discuss a newer style of beer being produced by two Pearl St. breweries in Buffalo! Well then, let us off at Buffalo!

<![CDATA[Episode 14: Chuggin' West Shore]]> Fri, 27 Apr 2018 19:14:48 GMT 58:17 5ae376a8122be9e2384a1eab yes full How do trains drink? They chug. Hop on the West Shore train with us this week as we talk about West Shore Brewing, a relatively new brewery in Clarence, NY! This brewery was suggested to us by a survey participant, and it did NOT disappoint! Our research this week took us into the Rare Books Room of the Central Library (how fancy!) Since we weren't able to drink West Shore Beers during our recording, we chose something else that seemed to fit the bill. All aboard!

<![CDATA[Episode 13: Hops n Hemp]]> Fri, 20 Apr 2018 14:30:41 GMT 1:08:11 5ad9f991a395d701455beb29 yes full Well...we're not sure how to say this lightly, but we're releasing this episode on a day where a lot of people celebrate a certain plant. (I guess that's a good way to put it lightly.) This plant shares a lot of similarities with another plant, which, if you enjoy drinking beer like we do, you know we're talking about hops! One of the major similarities is the prohibition of the substances that these plants are found in, and in this episode, we'll be talking in detail about the prohibition of alcohol! And since we're a Buffalo podcast, we'll of course talk a bit about Buffalo's role during the prohibition! So join us, and remember to drink responsibly, which means you've gotta drink local!
