Samantha Bentley, one of Pittsburgh’s funniest comedians, joins the Drinking Partners in their latest release and will have listeners laughing for over an hour. The trio jumps from topic to topic with their unique spins on everyday issues, and the conversation never fails to conclude with a magical comedic touch, even when Samantha discusses her early struggles with comedy. Ever wonder how Ed wins every argument he’s in? Tune in for that answer as the comedians get personal, and Samantha shares some of her best stage moments. Perhaps the best moment is when Samantha admits to objectifying Ed, in an exchange that will be ranked as one of the Drinking Partners best. A classic, comedy-centered episode that will please every listener. To hear more from Samantha, check her out May 3rd at the Ace Hotel in her starring role at the Three Women One Mic show.

Ed complains as he finds himself in “third place on his own podcast” in the voice department as Aadam Soorma from Porter Craft Beer Tours joins the Drinking Partners. The early minutes center on Mr. Soorma’s Cleveland roots, but transition into his job as a representative of Pittsburgh and columnist for pittsburgh.verylocal.com. From there, the talk goes to all things beer, from where, when, and how to enjoy the Pittsburgh brewery scene. And then things go off topic in very unexpected ways, as Ed and Day discuss man-dogs and muzzling babies. Yes, you read that right. As usual, the Drinking Partners double back to discuss beer and brewery flexing, with lots of pausing for laughter breaks. A fun listen that is perfect for the warmer weather and brewery visits.

In their newest podcast release, the Drinking Partners highlight Revival Chili, after they offer a hilarious examination of the business casual look. Jordan Robarge - Revival Chili’s founder - speaks on his food truck’s founding and mission, one that includes second chances, open hiring, and in-depth training. In addition, he talks about their expansion to include Nancy’s Diner, which allows Revival to employ more people and expand their community reach. Ed and Day chow down on a spicy chicken chili, which leads to some Drinking Partners confessions. Blending both the diner and food truck, Nancy’s features chili and waffles, in addition to a full menu. And BYOB, which Ed and Day take credit for as they veer off topic in their amusing ways. The interview concludes with Jordan talking about Revival’s expansion and outreach plans, intermixed with more of Ed and Day’s rants and raves. For more information about Nancy’s Revival and Revival Chili, visit www.revivalchili.com.

The Drinking Partners welcome Jamie Warcen and Paul Schneider, owner and head brewer for Cinderlands Beer Company in their latest release. Ed promises to become a cinders expert as the men discuss how Cinderlands emerged as both a craft brewery and independent restaurant. As the men taste a strong-smelling guava coconut tart IPA, Paul explains the process behind its tropical conception; the beer leaves Ed and Day thrilled and talkative, as they are overcome by the original taste. (Very talkative as they veer into a Drinking Partners-esque rant about candy.) Midway through, Ed drops an unforgettable pause moment before the conversation returns to beer, specifically the ancient traditions of brewing and a great explanation of the differences in saisons. The interview closes with Jamie and Paul both sharing how they develop their own choices, with some hints at their recipes. With their second location opening soon in the Strip District, Cinderlands is looking to continue to make their impact known in both brewing and dining. For more info, visit www.cinderlands.com.

Brooke Franus and Lee Schmidt, the couple behind the Pittsburgh-based Stewards of Beer, join the Drinking Partners and drop their tagline in the opening minutes: We’re here for your beer. During the first half of the podcast, Brooke and Lee explain the concept behind Stewards of Beer, one that aims to educate, promote, and assist the thriving beer culture in Western Pennsylvania. Up first on the expansive sample of beers they have brought to the studio is a collaboration beer from New Belgium that features a Mexico-inspired fruit infusion. As the Drinking Partners sip, Brooke and Lee discuss their upcoming class offerings, which teach everything from beer and food pairings to keg line maintenance, with many topics in between. The classes will be held at Hal’s Bottle Shop in Ross Township, and enrollment for the 6-week class can be accessed through www.stewardsofbeer.com. After a break for Ed and Day to give advice on how to be a relationship wingman, the group tastes an earthy sour and a chocolate stout, and a thorough, beer-centric debate follows before the group finishes with a 14% milk stout. An extensive and educational listen that shows what the Stewards of Beer do best.
