Episode Notes
A Boilermaker is one shot of whiskey and one mug of beer. The method of drinking varies. Some shoot the whiskey straight and use the beer as a chaser. Others pour the two together and drink it. A "Depth Charge" occurs when you drop the shot glass into the beer glass and down the drink all at once.
