Everybody get your “fun” meters out because the fun level in this episode is off the charts, so much that this episode was almost labeled “The Fun Episode”. So why are we talking about the many amusement parks and attractions that have meant family fun for generations of Western New Yorkers? Take a listen to find out! Oh, you’re curious about what beer we’re featuring this week? We’re not coming right out and saying it, but Haley latched onto the name of the brew and it snowballed into this entire episode!

This week we recorded on location at Big Ditch Brewing Company! We feature two of their beers, Beautiful River Farmhouse Saison and Electric District Pilsner. Check out this episode to hear our favorite (and most likely completely untrue) story about the origin of the naming of our city: Buffalo. Also, hear a bit about how the power of the Niagara River and Niagara Falls was harnessed and where they decided to send the first dose of electricity once they flipped the switch!(Also, wait around until about 40 minutes in, where you can hear a bit of our interview with the president of Big Ditch, Matt Kahn!)To hear the unedited version of this episode (as well as the full interview with Matt Kahn, and more fun things coming up soon) please become one of our patrons! https://www.patreon.com/drinkingpointsMusic: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeThings mentioned in this episode:What are Queen Cities?The New Wonder of the World by A.E.

Listen up you hosers. This week we're going over the border to talk about our friends to the north, Canada, and more specifically, Hamilton, Ontario. So come inside, put on some dry socks (ya gotta hate those soakers, am I right?) and crack open that two-four and listen to us talk about some history and Collective Arts Brewing.

Sorry to disappoint--this episode is about the First Ward, NOT Old First Ward Brewing. (We'll get there!) Regardless, this is our St. Patrick's Day episode! So naturally, we're talking about the Irish impact on Buffalo, and the neighborhood where they set their roots. Also we're drinking Irish-style beers, so there's that. (And no, not green beer.) Are you Irish? Who cares! Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's day.Music: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeWe have a website: http://drinkingpoints.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter @drinkingpointsIf you shop on amazon, use our amazon affiliate link: https://www.amazon.com/?&_encoding=UTF8&tag=drinkingpoint-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=f730c29cf63fd7695d7a441c2c1c9fd8&camp=1789&creative=9325Thanks for listening!

Welcome to the episode 51 of Drinking Points! This week we introduce a new theme song and a new outlook on the show. We discuss growing as a podcast, what we’ve been up to this week and...our recently played albums on Spotify! Troy’s dad gets a thorough mention as we talk about Father’s Day, his funny sayings, and our distaste for the book “Sh*t My Dad Says”. We hope you enjoy the new Drinking Points, it’s just a podcast!Music: "Me" by Straight Johnny & the Gash Goblins Check out their album on Bandcamp! Things mentioned:Big Norwegian Kombucha Jersey Shore ASMR Become a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we’d really love you for it!

Here it is: Minisode #6. As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the last couple of months. It’s a break that we needed, but that we couldn’t wait to end. This minisode is a PSA about mental health and mental illness. “While we were away, I was battling my own mind. I’ve suffered from anxiety, panic, and depression since my early teens but I always found ways to cope. Recently, my coping mechanisms became unhealthy and destructive. My mental illness penetrated every facet of my life, from the time I got out of bed until I would lay my head on the pillow at the end of the night. I wasn’t sleeping, eating, or bathing by the time I really cracked. I had to make a few trips to the hospital, experiment with different medications, and begin therapy to get where I am currently. Honesty will be an important part of my healing process, so Haley and I decided that this minisode would be a great way to update everyone listening on what’s been going on and what you can expect in the future.”  -TroyNext week we’ll have a new full length episode and we’ll be picking up right where we left off. The summer is almost here, and the nice weather has already arrived. It’s time for a beer on one of the many patios around town! There’s plenty of history to reveal and a TON of new beers coming out throughout the summer to fuel the podcast! Thanks for your continued support and understanding.

Everybody stand up, stretch, and grab yourself another beer because we’re talking about the ballpark this week. We chat a little bit about the Buffalo Bisons’ new field sponsor, Bisons mascots (animate and inanimate), and a man at the ballpark that’s even more recognizable than a mascot. Resurgence Brewing, Big Ditch Brewing, and Community Beer Works team up for a third time to release the Buffalo Brewers Series of beers. This one has us excited for the baseball season, now get back to your seats and press play!Music: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBecome a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

We're back baby! Troy's been under the weather for about a week and a half, which we're not only going to use as an excuse for our absence, but we're also using it for the theme of this episode! We go over the history of Buffalo's largest hospital, which played an important role in the area during the 1918 flu pandemic. To go along with our theme of weird stuff that microorganisms do, we're drinking Big Ditch's Bidwell Wild Ale!

Showing some love during the week of Valentine’s Day. As you may know we really dig talking about the Erie Canal, but Episode 48 is all about the Love Canal. We talk about how a city planned to be a clean, futuristic utopia powered by hydroelectricity lead to the creation of a toxic waste dump: the plan for a “Model City” really was a model on how not to dispose of toxic waste, and once you do dispose of that toxic waste, how not to handle a national emergency fueled by sickness, death, and birth defects. This all happened along the Niagara Escarpment, which also happens to be where our drink this week is from. We discuss yet another story of pollution in WNY while sipping Riesling from Freedom Run Winery. Learn about the history of the Niagara Region as well as all of New York State’s impact on winemaking. Music: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBecome a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

This week we felt that after recording last time with Vinylly Friday, we needed to take a break from the brews--of beer, that is--because in this episode we're drinking Barrel + Brine kombucha! We discuss the somewhat disturbing way that kombucha is made as well as the tons of other fermented goodies that Barrel + Brine has to offer! And on the historical end, Haley gets serious about WNY's Eeriest body of water.Cheers!

This week, we were joined by our buds Tim and Eddie from Vinylly Friday for a regular ol' collab-a-thon! This time around, we let them pick the brewery: we drank Main Course DDHIPA by Belt Line Brewery & Kitchen, a brand-new brewery and taproom that just opened down in the Hydraulic neighborhood. And as things generally go around here, the brewery decided the history for this episode...so more trains! Buckle up: we're all quite inebriated for this one (good thing we took the train!)And since it was a "collab-a-thon," there'll be a new episode of Vinylly Friday featuring us coming up soon! We'll keep ya'll updated on when it does, but until then, listen to the rest of their episodes--they're some pretty funny dudes who talk about a wide range of music!Music: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBecome a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

This week we go back to Episode 1, and reminisce about (read: completely rip on) our Pilot Episode too!

Sometimes episodes are written around a historical event, sometimes they’re written with a certain beer in mind. Other times, a brewery releases a beer about winter weather with 7.7% ABV and 77 IBUs and we’re left with no choice but to do a Blizzard of 77 episode. So crack a beer and bundle up, because it’s a cold one out there!Also, this episode features a special guest: our neighbor, Aaron!

We're back (again!) And this time, in a brand new space: we've moved to the Old First Ward! Obviously we're super excited, so allow us to gush about our new apartment and the building we live in now and its historical significance in the city. Now as this is both our first experience "leaving the nest," we thought we would drink a beer that (loosely) fits the theme of moving out of your parent's place.Music: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBecome a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

Hey, uh... sorry we've been gone for a minute. We promise we were thinking about all of you the whole time and feeling really guilty about it. And we were drinking local beer.Anyway, in this episode we're kickin' it old school: Old First Ward-school. We finally made it down to Gene McCarthy's/OFW Brewing and it was everything we could have ever hoped for. We gush more about the First Ward neighborhood (we've done this before, re: previous episodes) and plans for renewal of this historic neighborhood.(About halfway though it starts raining like crazy outside.

As the snow starts to fall, November begins to pass us by, and the last thursday of the month approaches, it begs the question: WERE THERE EXTRATERRESTRIALS PRESENT AT THE FIRST THANKSGIVING?! While there’s no record of aliens NOT attending the first feast, there ARE records of UFO sightings in New York State. We skim through YouTube videos of UFOs caught on local newscasts, records of sightings in our neighborhoods on nuforc.org, and a controversial visit the Men in Black took to Niagara Falls. Does this episode seem too out there for you?We also discuss the possible, and very real explanations behind sightings all over the U.S. like Top Secret programs operated out of Groom Lake salt flats [Area 51], and the companies behind them. While Lockheed Martin led those operations in the Nevada desert, they also continue research today at a location in Niagara Falls, New York. You may also hear the Imperial March play in your head when we talk about Northrop Grumman and their push to make space weapons and Star Wars a reality.Sit back and listen as we cover all this and more while sipping on two intergalactic themed beers. How could we properly walk the line of conspiracies without getting spaced out on DIPAs by two of our favorite breweries. First we take on Radio the Mothership by Collective Arts, which is lighter in color than our second beer, but brings more effervescence and packs a boozier punch. Next we drink Space Kitty by Rohrbach Brewing Company which has a bronze hue, and balances the bitterness with some much welcomed malt. Alright, put on your tinfoil hats, get in your cardboard box rocket ship, and have a listen!Cheers!Intro: "Low Bridge" by the Rust Belt BrigadeOutro: "Stardust" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBuy their album "Rhythm & Roll" on Bandcamp!Become a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

This episode we throw things back and go back to our roots: this is our Buffalo Brewing Company episode! Surprisingly, we've only just had our first experience drinking with them in the last month! They're a two-year-old brewery that carries the same namesake as a brewery from a century ago, making beers reminiscent of yesteryears.

Why are we posting a minisode this week? Well, we're still hungover (physically, emotionally, and spiritually) from Halloween. There isn't really a theme to this one, if we're being honest... but we do talk a lot about cats, adorable rodents, Troy's blog, beer, and a bunch of other Schlitz. Music: "The Last Nine Years" by the Rust Belt BrigadeBecome a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

Throughout the nineteen-forties, fifties, and sixties, Buffalo’s theatre district was fortunate enough to host some of the biggest names in entertainment. On any given date, Shea’s Buffalo and the Town Casino across the street were sure to be home to an evening show, leading to late night after-parties that lasted until morning. Today, you can still catch a performance at Shea’s or a concert at Town Ballroom, and its said that while visiting both you can still hear the post-show festivities, or even be approached by the late Michael Shea.While recording this week, Haley drinks a beer by Buffalo’s own Pressure Drop Brewing. With hints of cinnamon and toasted flavors, ‘Dog Birthday Party’ Graham Cracker Stout is warm and welcome on the palate during this cooler weather. Then, Pressure Drop sent in a special guest before his big release; Ol’ Green Eyes himself, ‘Dank Sinatra’. Although the opaque glass of beer you get from this one is on point with what we think of as a New England Style, the flavors are a true East Coast meets West Coast mashup. With a sweet, citrusy, almost herbaceous front end, Dank Sinatra finishes his set dank, earthy, and just a little bitter.Music: "No Survivors" by the Grease CreepersYou can download their album "Fresh Cut" here!Become a patron! It could only cost you $1 a month, and it goes towards our beer funds, and also we'd really love you for it!

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.

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?
