Beerology and The BNBA Brewers Invitational at NY Beer Project

Beerology & The Brewers Invitational

are two of my favorite events of the year. The local breweries seem to save their special beers and on-offs for these two events in the beginning of the new year.


Beerology is a fundraiser for the Buffalo Museum of Science featuring local and regional craft beer after normal museum hours. My wife, kids, and I love the museum, we're there multiple times a month and even more in the summer, so the first time I went to Beerology it was somewhat surreal to see grown adults, in various levels of inebriation, enjoying the exhibits. It's the kind of event that bring beer-snobs, casual craft-beer lovers, and the Labatt drinkers out in equal force. The local brewers generally bring a seasonal or one-off beer, and the local homebrew clubs set up experiments to test out brewing myths or to explore ingredients in a deeper way.


This year, I'm bringing interviews with the local clubs to describe their experiments.


The second half of the episode is from New York Beer Project for the BNBA Brewers Invitational. This is another of my favorite events where the brewers seem to bring their best and newest creations. On this episode we have a Pączki beer, a Manhattan beer, some killer NEIPAs and some local favorites that have been on hiatus. 

If you've never been to this event, check out the BNBA Events page for details next year, it's worth it.

What do you know about CO2? We use it to force carb our beer or to serve through a kegging system, but is all CO2 the same? Can you fill it at a welding shop or does it have to be "beverage grade"? Is there even such thing as "Beverage Grade"?


Pamela Irish Bronkie and her family have been providing Buffalo with CO2 for generations and on this episodes she provides answers to all those questions. Let's demystify our favorite bubble-producing gas together.

On this episode, I chat with Karl Kolbe about Pressure Drop Brewing. Karl is the head brewer/CEO and is cranking out some killer West Coast IPAs. The day I was there he was finishing off a batch of Sticky Trees. If you haven't had it yet, you should seek it out.


It was a really laid-back and nice conversation, proving how awesome the local brewers are.

One Eyed Cat Brewing

is a new proposed brewery coming to the North-East suburbs of Buffalo. On this episode, I pulled Sara and Patrick Alexanderson aside up at Santoras Pizza Pub and Grill on Transit Rd to talk about the brewery. They were there along with their partners Bill and Stephanie Beecher to showcase 6 of the beers that they plan to have on tap when they eventually open in the near future.


The event was attended by investors and local beer-lovers and was a great evening of food, beer, and really great conversations.
