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…
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,…
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 hydroelectric…
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 i…
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 tha…
It’s our One Beer Anniversary Episode! An entire year has passed since we started Drinking Points! This week we go back to Episode 1, and reminisce about (read: completely rip on) our Pilot Episode too! We were welcomed back to record at Big Ditch …
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 Blizzar…
We're excited to say that this is (what feels like) our first real episode that we've recorded since ermmm... October? We took a classic Drinking Points field trip to the Buffalo Museum of Science to go along with this episode's beer, XPA by Woodco…
Joy to the world! This is our off-the-cusp Christmas mini(?)sode! In this episode, we talk about Christmas trees, Christmas traditions, and... Christmas! And drink wintery beers! Join us around the Netflix Fireplace (Birchwood Edition) and let us j…
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 …
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-schoo…
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 fir…
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 sa…
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'…
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 …
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 monst…
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…
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…
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 discus…
Hey-ey-ey-ey we just got our new equipment in the mail, and drank a ton of new beers this weekend at the Ballpark Brewbash, so we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a quick little minisode! Remember: live every day like it's Buffalo Be…
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 W…
Here it is: our Buffalo History Museum episode! To celebrate their upcoming Party on the Portico, we've decided to make this episode all about them (or at least mostly about them...) We love history! So obviously we love the history museum. Hear al…
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 …
It's our thirtieth episode! You know what they say: 30 is the new 20! So for this, our thirtieth episode, we've decided to make our own little "clip-isode" where we go over our last 29 episodes (and the minisodes) and bring up some stuff that's com…
This episode's for anyone going back to school this week coming up: this is our University at Buffalo episode! (Probably one of many, because there's a ton of history behind the school.) Consider this our most general UB episode, because Haley goes…
