Episode 35: Get in the spirit!

Have you ever wondered why things make you creeped out? To kick off the show, Haley gives a run down on exactly why we find things creepy, and why she likes being spooked, while Troy reaffirms that when it comes to scary stuff, he’s a little baby b***h.


That being said, welcome to the first of four Halloween episodes! With New York having the history that it does, and with all the available seasonal beers, it was obvious to us that all that spookiness couldn’t be fit into a single show! This week, learn about NYS as the birthplace of Spiritualism, and two sisters that became famous for pranking their mother, and in turn, started an entire religion. And since it’s week one, you know some pumpkin beers were consumed! But whether you love em or hate em, we let you know where to send your thank you cards or your hate mail!


As always, drink responsibly, drink local, oh and stay creepy!

Recent Episodes

As the third of four Halloween episodes goes live we think it’s safe to say that we’ve gone from spooky, to creepy, to downright scary with this episode. What makes it cross the line to ‘scary’? The fact that these are the stories of the real monsters that have terrorized our communities: Serial Killers. While Robert Kleason wasn’t a serial killer by definition (his kill count isn’t sufficient enough), he was once rumored to be the inspiration for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films. Then we discuss the man who spent years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, while the real ‘Bike Path Rapist’ was free to kill again.


The historical content may be dark, but we kept the drinks light and sweet. This week is a cider episode, and we tried a few varieties! Throughout the show we sip Leonard Oakes “Steampunk Cider” and review two ciders by Blackbird Cider Works that we tried before recording. Don’t think there’s something for your specific tastes in the cider world? Think again!

This week we discuss the true horror behind a popular urban legend in Angola NY, the curse of an Egyptian king cast in Niagara Falls, and we list off a number of “coincidences” that have happened along the Great Gorge Route near Devil’s Hole. Ready or not, we drink another pumpkin beer...well it’s more of a coffee beer by Fifth Frame Brewing Co. with a seasonal twist. Then we try our first Rye IPA, by Barrier Brewing. So do you want to find out where to go and possibly experience a good spook? Want to hear the funny crap other people say about the beers we drink? Then quit reading and get listening!

This week we're revisiting Rochester! Haley's already feeling a little spooky so she'll be talking exclusively about Mount Hope cemetery and its most famous/interesting residents (no offense to the rest of the people buried there...) Also we discuss a newer brewery in the area, as well as another Rochester brewery that makes a beer based off of a well-known mass-produced beer.

Hey there! This is a special pre-recorded episode that we recorded with the guys from What the Hops at Big Ditch during the Packet re-release! Regrettably, there isn't a ton of history in this episode, and that's mainly because we were going with What the Hops' style of podcasting: just shooting the shit. We hope you enjoy, and we'll be back next week with your regularly-scheduled history podcast (brewed for your enjoyment.) Happy Buffalo Beer Week! #COLLABORATION


Check out our friends from What the Hops

This week we're celebrating Buffalo's music scene to get in the spirit of Music is Art, the nonprofit started by a member of one famous Buffalo-based band. When you think of music and entertainment in Buffalo, you can't not think about the Theatre District, or its centerpiece: Shea's Performing Arts Center. Shea was a super busy guy who seriously LOVED entertainment. If you're not driving, take a sip for every theatre of his that Haley mentions in this episode.


TL;DL: Everything burns down *fire emoji*. Also we don't know how to pronounce vaudeville.
