This week's episode is a day early for Halloween! We discuss the delicious food at a reputedly haunted pub, Halloween's origins and different foods associated with it as well as other holidays that offer food to the dead. More pictures to come!
This week's episode is a pubcast - as such, listener discretion is advised. There are a few eff bombs, and we are podcasting from a pub discussing adult beverages, so use your judgement when choosing to listen.
We discuss the documentary Beer Wars, which discusses how microbrews are fighting for space on shelves with the Big Three (Budweiser, Miller, Coors) in the USA. We also discuss other trivia, so pull your favourite pint (or other beverage) and tune in!
