Brian, Eric and Savana are together for this episode and we're talking about Miami, FL metalcore legends, Poison the Well! We get into a bit on what the band meant to us, are they Florida's best metalcore band, and Derek Miller leaving and starting Sleigh Bells. We also get off topic a bit and talk mascots and their personal lives, how Thrice started Barstool and Brian's video collection (no, not that video collection).
While we're stuck in the comfort of our homes during this time of quarantine, Brian and Savana are joined on Houseparty by Andrew Hardin from Thin Man and Jeremy Rossi from Mortalis! We talk about how everyone has been adapting to what has been going on in the world, some recent beer releases and just keep ourselves from going a little sitr crazy!
Winter Festival season remains hot with the inaugural CollaBEERation Festival! It took place on 2/16 at the Resurgence Brewing Company Chicago Street location and all beers available were brewed in collaboration with groups of local beer drinkers. Each group helped their brewery choose what style of beer to be brewed and helped in the brewing process as well. Thanks again to Joe Yager, Erik Coleman and all of those involved in the creation of this one of a kind festival that we tried to capture for you all to listen in on.
As the winter of Beer Festivals continues in WNY, Brian took a quick drive up to Lewiston for the Inaugural Cask Festival at Brickyard Brewing Company. Joined by friend of the show and recurring guest, CJ, they talked to a whole slew of people while enjoying some great cask selections.
