Episode 32: This is Beer!?
There's a brand-spanking-new episode out! The hosts decide to try out some brews that don't fit the traditional profiles most people think of when they hear "beer," (think hoppy beers, or lagers). These include a gruit, a range of fruit themed beer from Decadent Ales, and the inimitable Rubaeus from Founders Brewing Co. They also check out an excellently named brew from KCBC: This is Your Brain on Hops. Coincidence, or ode to the podcast? We'll let you decide.

Episode 31: Get Some of That in Your Mouth as It Enters a Warmer Area
In this episode of Your Brain on Hops, the hosts start out by sampling a new Buffalo brewery, Belt Line Brewery & Kitchen. They try out High Green, a Pale Ale clocking in at 5.7%, which has them pretty excited to visit the brewery to sample more. Next, they decide to embrace symmetry by trying out two beers each from two separate breweries, two of which are IPAs and two of which are darker brews. They taste Alena (IPA) and Pappy's Porter (Porter) from The Alchemist, as well as Julius (IPA) and Bear (Brown Ale) from Tree House Brewing Company. Along the way, Alex discusses his New England adventures by which these brews were acquired, Tim makes lurid jokes, and Chris discovers the virtues of Brown Ales (p.s. let us know your favorite Brown Ales!)
