Great Lakes Brewing Co., Edmund Fitzgerald
Bridgett: This beer says it’s a porter. I’m not sure what makes a porter a porter, but I think it might be more roasted things, so I’m totally okay with that.
Mike: The Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior, which doesn’t border Ohio, the birthplace of this beer. What does this beer know about the Edmund Fitzgerald? This beer sucks.

Breckenridge Brewery, Vanilla Porter
Bridgett: Way smoother than the Great Lakes porter, but just as dark. On second thought though, it smells a little weird. Though that may be the drunk hypersensitivity kicking in.
Mike: “How have you not peed yet?” - Bridgett. You’re actually drinking these beers? I thought we just take a swig and spit them out? Don’t look down.
