Eddie's close call with WishTV - 

What does "Sessionable" mean?  
Lower ABV and something you can keep drinking.  Not super heavy. 

Sessionable beers of the time might have been a cask-conditioned offering, Mild or Bitter, at 3 to 4 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), but no higher. Poured into a UK pint glass (20ozs vs. the US 16oz pint), patrons might have had upwards of 8 pints during a session and still remain coherent, ergo the "session beer." Sounds like a lot of beer, but it actually works out to be about 1 beer per hour if you take into consideration the rising ABV of today's beers. (https://www.beeradvocate.com/archived-articles/653/)

What is Pilgrimage? 

The Gus Chiggins story.  How the beer got its name. 
Gus Chiggins: SNL Skit

Naming of beers - They try not to take it too serious. 
"Boner Pills" - people were unhappy with the name of their pilsner.  

What is Poutine and Why?  
A classic version of loaded potato soup is made with beef stock instead and topped with a small portion of our hand cut French fries topped with melted cheese curds and scallions. We told you to hear us out.
