A podcast about beer and travelling.

001: Inverness - 'Loch, Stock and Two Smoking Whiskeys'

To kick off their international beer pilgrimage, Paddy and Rory travel to the most northerly city in the UK: Inverness. Perhaps the people of the Highlands, who for hundreds of years have been on a mysterious search of their own can assist our pair in their quest for an indescribable feeling...

002: Prague - 'Whilst in Prague'

Fuelled by nothing but lager and ice cream sundaes, Rory and Paddy continue their travels to the Penta Hotel in Prague. They take in the sights, sounds and suds of the extraordinarily beautiful city that many consider to be the beer capital of the world. Our crusaders are also lucky enough to talk to writer and New York Times beer expert, Evan Rail, whose knowledge and passion for the subject makes Rory and Paddy want to dive head first into a tub full of beer… which they actually do!

003: Brussels - 'It's More of a Movement'

For their next adventure Paddy and Rory head to the Penta Hotel in Brussels in search of something a little different. The Belgian capital is a city known, not just for it's little statues of people urinating but also for its unnervingly strong beer. Can they handle it? Find out as our low ABV lager enthusiasts hop around the city drinking beers, playing chess and get irritated when seeing people lining up in single file at the bar.
