Hosted by Russ and Tony, each episode is 12 to 70 minutes of passionate blather about a beer and a song. We drink the beer. We listen to the song. Disagreement and ridicule abound. Sometimes there is more than one beer. Sometimes there are no songs. Sometimes there are multiple songs. There has never been no beer.
The beers and music are both great. Russ is Russ about it.
It's Founders CBS and the actual Backstreet Boys.
Two tall cans of IPA full of hops we don't recognize from Satulah Mountain and Old Nation Brewing Companies, respectively. And a song from Billy Joel you've definitely heard but probably wouldn't guess.
Russ picked the song, so Russ has no one to blame but himself. Also, the song rules so hard. Russ picked a great one.
We are joined again by our Light American Lager correspondent, so we feed him a massive barrel-aged stout.
Our buddy Chris joins us for some deep summer philosophizing and a couple beers that end in Light/Lite. TONY TONY WHATS WITH THE HEAVY BREATHING. Well, since I am not able to make audio equipment function in any productive way, Chris was without the benefit of headphones throughout. We are nothing if not consistent.
A local Belgian quad and Trampled by Turtles AND no snacks BUT some soccer.
The chicken wing content starts around 15:45 if that's the only reason you're here, which is totally understandable.
Russ's rap name should be Young Wheezy.
The episode title is description enough!
I would post a longer description, but this airplane wifi is real bad.
A real good beer from Mother Earth, a funny ha ha song from Russ, and two audibly delicious snacks from the UK. Also, ENHEIGHTENED is a word now.
We drink a fantastic beer from The Bruery and explain why it is long overdue, and Russ is back on his ... music.
After starting 2018 with bold new beer opinions, Russ is back to hating very good beers for no reason. Also, copious wheedle-eedles.
A ridiculous beer from Italy and a new song from Atlanta's own Quiet Hounds.
Two sour beers from Russ (which ... read that back to yourself, long-time listeners) and a show tune because, again, Russ.
Blake from Creature Comforts and Eric from Yonah Mountain Vineyards joined us to talk about their collaboration, The Curious 10. This was a really fun episode to record. It's pretty loose and trying to wrangle four mics makes for a couple rough spots, so, basically, everything you've come to expect from us. Get in there!
HAHAHA SECOND EPISODE OF THE NEW YEAR I PROMISE IT WILL GET BETTER ACTUALLY THIS EPISODE IS PRETTY GOOD I'M SERIOUS [EXPECT ACTUAL BETTERNESS AT YOUR OWN RISK]
OH HAS IT BEEN FIVE MONTHS SINCE OUR LAST EPISODE HERE IS A NEW EPISODE
The title of this episode is pretty self-explanatory. Our long time football correspondent, Kit, joins us once again to drink a couple beers, eat a crunchy snack, and make predictions that are guaranteed to either happen or not happen. Alright then.
We were joined by Taylor from Oconee Brewing Company, which is slated to open in early 2017 in Greensboro, GA (sort of halfway between Atlanta and Augusta). Taylor graciously drove six hundred thousand miles from Greensboro and braved bizarro Sunday Atlanta traffic to sweat it out in the basement and we are thankful for that. In addition to a couple Oconee brews, Taylor also brought a song by Brad Carter. As I mentioned in the episode, here is a link to a video of Brad Carter playing guitar while having brain surgery. So get in there!
Hey hey! We managed to sweet talk Blake into sticking around for another episode. He brought the beer and we repurposed a song from an episode that didn't make the cut. Oh, and we drank an extra beer because we are grown ass men and we can do whatever we want.
It took us an extra week and a wasted episode, but we're here with episode of our lord one hundred and fifty and it is a good'n. Who's your favorite recurring guest? If you said anyone other than Blake, well ... I guess, go back to episode one and start over. He's been with us before (20, 99, 100), and we love having him on because we can just lean on him for intelligent, coherent information about beer, as opposed to ... you know. Blake was nice enough to bring us some samples of Creature Comforts' soon-to-be-released Mutualism. It's set to be available at the brewery as a to-go souvenir tour option starting July 14th, but we got to enjoy it early because we are elite beer journalists. It tastes like LISTEN TO THE EPISODE. Blake also brought a song from local Atlanta rockers Stonerider who released a new album called Hologram a couple months ago. We listen to "Elevator Operator," and it is very good, but I'll just tell you it is very long. Russ said that Stonerider sounds like "Emerson, Hall, & Oates" and he wasn't trying to be funny or ironic because Russ. Alright, get in there.
It's an episode of a podcast! If you are a fan of the bizarre rules and regulations that serve as the governing framework of Russ's life, you're definitely going to want to check out the Fruit Bit that starts at the 9:50 mark.
We are back after a Summer break to plow into a fruity beer from Cigar City and listen to a song suggested by Russ, which, as you know, always goes very, very well. Enjoy!
The second of two episodes with Señor Bernard Dawguerro. We drink delicious homebrew and listen to delicious alt-country-southern-rock-soul courtesy of Sturgill Simpson. I think I could get used to these super short episode summaries.
