It's the 150th anniversary of the Commonwealth of Canada and to celebrate a number of breweries have created a bevy of brews. Are they good? The barkeeps crack open a few to find out.

Featured in this episode is Moosehead Anniversary Ale, Black Creek Historical Brewery's Canada 150 Best Bitter Ale and a collaboration between Central City Brewers and Garrison Brewing Company's called "New" Scottish Ale. 

Also featured, some talk about sports (sports??? Is that a typo??? It's not????? Okay...) Opie directing Han Solo and David gets ticks. Typical show, really...

After ANOTHER long, long, long hiatus, the barkeeps are back. For good. You can't keep a good barkeep down.

Or these two, either.

Dave and Jeremy sample Muddy York Pale Ale and Collective Arts Prophets and Nomads. They talk poop, they talk strikes... they talk...

The try to pronounce words...

It's all canon.

Welcome back.

Drink along, don't drink alone.


Yes, it's been awhile since you last heard from the Barkeeps... Rest asured, Dave and Jeremy are doing just fine.

This DrinkAlong LIVE was recorded in March 2015 at the SoCap Theatre with very special guest Brian Froud. You might know him from his many, many, many voices on cartoons ranging from Jimmy Two-Shoes to Total Drama.

We're going to try some beer from Double Trouble Brewing and talk video games and The Thermals. All good stuff.

Some notes about the sound... it's not great, but we've done our best to correct that. There was a group of six idiots talking through the start of the show.

Just for future reference, if you're at a place called the SOCIAL CAPITAL THEATRE you might want to consider not being dicks and talking during a performance. It's a theatre, not a rec room, you stupid hipster douches. I don't care if the show you saw prior was an insuferable bore... DrinkAlong is for sitting quietly and enjoying.

Anyway, they leave pretty quickly...

But you should stick around and enjoy Dave, Jeremy and Brian.

DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

Join Dave and Jeremy as they realize, quite late, that this is the Two Year Anniversary show.


Served up this episode is Sweetgrass Barrel Aged Red & White, Rogue's Voodoo Donut and Flying Monkeys Matador Version 2.0 El Toro Bravo. Off the menu is talking about movies, so the Barkeeps spend a lot of time talking about the Oscars.

They're also pretty tipsy...

DrinkAlong, don't drink alone and Happy Anniversary!

Alia Miller joins the Barkeeps on this episode... Not too much more to say about it... Sorry it's late!

We discuss Cask Days and romantic comedies and other follies... it's a fun time.

It's also a longer episode to reward those who've waited so long for our return!

Recorded on May 4, 2014, this episode explores the theme of Half & Half beverages (that's beverages mixed with other beverages to create a third beverage) with our very special guests, Melyssa Ade (Interstate 60, Jason X) and Kelly Manchester (How Do You See Toronto?, The Screamening).

This is a long one, but along the way, we're going to talk about some nerdy stuff (like buying signatures at conventions) some social stuff (like the seemingly new ressurgance of racism stories covered by the media) and some political stuff (like Rob Ford's chances in the mayoral election).

Again... this was May.  Treat it as a time capsule!  It was a simpler, warmer time!

We mix up some beer from Mill Street & Amsterdam Breweries and Thornbury Cider for this episode. This is the first time we also try some non-alcoholic beverages! 

DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

This starts and ends with an apology from Jeremy who can't hold his bourbon as well as he thought he could.

You make a podcast about drinking, you break a few eggs... into a glass and drink them the next morning.

Through it all, our guest Matthew Price from MAMO! is incredibly insightful, eloquant and tolerant as we discuss fatherhood, crying in movies and a bunch of stuff a couple of guys talk about when having a stiff drink.

And it's a long one, too... so enjoy.


If Doug Ford wins, the next one will feature Dave on a three day bender.

DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

Episode Thirty - The Fermentations Signature Beer Challenge

The long wait is finally over. After months of teasing and taunting, the Fermentations Signature Beer has been brewed.  

To celebrate the occasion, the Barkeeps have invited Casey Lyons (See You Next Wednesday), Jamie Dew (The Dew Over) and Matt Brown (MAMO!).

Whether you're new to DrinkAlong, or an old friend, this episode has it all... It's the purest distilled version of "whatever a couple of guys talk about when they're sitting around just having a beer".*

Special thanks to Fermentations at 201 Danforth Ave in Toronto for their help with this episode. We WILL be back and we hope to see all of you there, brewing your own.

DrinkAlong, Don't Drink Alone.

*If your couple of guys are all pop culture/film podcast hosts.
