Episode 21: Ruby Red Jacket


In this episode we delve into a Buffalo historical figure who Haley has been super excited to talk about: Red Jacket! As expected, any talk involving post-European Native American history can get a little serious, but we promise it’s not too much of a bummer! We even get a little spooky and discuss a possible Buffalo curse? And for the beer… well, that would be another curse of the Buffalo/Western New York area: we’re drinking Genny Screamers. If you don’t know what those are, you’re gonna find out today!

And an extra tidbit: we talk about Resurgence’s new can releases, specifically Peter B. Porter and Conehead IPA, which we’re super pumped about!

(Sorry there’s a lot of car/plane noises in the background. It was hot as a really hot thing so we had the windows open for the first half of the episode…then there’s birds, which is a little less annoying)
