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.
AND GET OUT AND VOTE!
If Doug Ford wins, the next one will feature Dave on a three day bender.
DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

The Barkeeps are on the town, coming to you from the Social Capital Theatre.
Recorded live on October 4, 2014, they'll be drinking some Moosehead (for enjoyment and for a good cause) as well as Hop City's 8th Sin Black Lager.
And that's not all!
There'll be a surprise special guest from Modern Superior's own The Dew Over podcast, Tweet's of the Week, and the return of What Were They Drinking? Also, a jawdropping news-bomb about the future of DrinkAlong!!!
Special thanks to the thirsty few who came out on Nuit Blanche to share a couple rounds and win some prizes. We love you.
Special thanks to Gord on sound, Carmine on beer patrol, and Ralph on bar. We love you, too.
DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

At the end of a long summer that was barely summer, our barkeeps find themselves at the cottage... relaxed... full of beer... and relaxed.
Join us for this smooth flowing, rain soaked, episode where we sample some Muskoka Harvest Ale and Lake of Bays Spark House and 10 Point IPA.
Along the way, we'll talk about the rigors of podcast sound, the faults of Zack Snyder, small Ontario towns and a very modest Drinkscapade.
DrinkAlong, don't drink alone...

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

Every few weeks or so we get a message that says "boy, you guys sound a little drunk at the end there..."
This week is no exception. This week raises the bar.
Join Dave and Jeremy as they talk about Gaurdians of the Galaxy, the DrinkAlong Beer Brew Challenge, trouble for craft beer in New Brunswick and Tim & Eric.
They drink Duvel Triple Hop, Hop City Brewing Co.'s Hopbot IPA and Beau's Matt's Sleepy Time Stout.
It's like an Belgian beer sandwich with a crisp American IPA middle. And the ABV is through the roof.
DrinkAlong, don't drink alone...
And pace yourself, ya dingus.

In this episode we discovered that Jeremy doesn't know how to hit rec on the recorder... you think he would... he's a dumbass...
BUT we also talk to comedian Ryan Belleville and all is fine. All is just fine.
We try some Amsterdam Tempest Stout and Downtown Brown (still dirty) with some Mill Street 100th Meridian to break it up.
Along the way we talk about Canadian TV and dog fucking and soccer... There's really too much to go into detail here.
Long story short... Download the episode and don't worry about it.
Drink Along, don't drink alone.

The War of the APA has begun!
This week the Barkeeps try some Naughty Neighbour by Nickel Brook and pair it with some Great Lakes Crazy Canuck. Who will win? Does it matter? Do you even read these???
To top it off, they also try some Bell City Brewing's Eureka Cream Ale.
Along the way you'll hear about social experiments, many brain farts and our Asshole of the Week. Also keep an ear open for our "Demon Wings" alarm. It's subtle.
Not much else to say but DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

Recorded on May 29th, this episode is HOT off the press.
Hot, being the operative word. It's summer time and that mean's patio season is upon us like a fever. So what should you be enjoying in your backyard? The Barkeeps try three bottles that are brewed to SLAKE your thirst on a hot, sunny day.
Beau's All Natural Brewing Co.'s Patio Saison and Summer Festivale are on tap, as is Cameron's California Sunshine APA.
The Barkeeps also talk about the Craft Beer Passport, some World Pride related Drinkscapades, what YOU can do to end the madness at City Hall and guilty pleasure tv and movies.
As always, DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.

Finally... FINALLY... We got Dan Gorman to sit down with us. Finally.
In this episode the Barkeeps are joined by the co-host of Modern Superior's SEE YOU NEXT WEDNESDAY and TIME BANDITS for the episode that has it all.
We got Brimestone Brewing Company's Hail Mary Ale. We got Whistler Brewing Company's Creekamus Chai-Maple Ale. We got Old Yale Brewing's Sasquatch Stout.
Plus, the rare vintages, lots of movie and podcast talk and the return of Drinkscapades... or in this case, Drinkscapades: Origins.
ADDED BONUS: The pop-culture deconstruction of the secret hidden message in the DrinkAlong theme song.
Sit back... relax... pop open a cold one, and DrinkAlong, don't drink alone.
