This episode is why we make this podcast. Our good buddy Kit (of Dawg Sports and Dawg Gone Podcast and One Beer One Song Episode 55.5 fame) joins us. We drink Citra Ass Down from Against The Grain Brewery in Louisville, KY. There are almost 4,000 breweries in the U.S. and Against The Grain is the #1 A+ best out of all of them at naming beers. SERIOUSLY GO LOOK (scroll down a smidge). And if Citra Ass Down is any indication, they are pretty dope at making beers as well.
And on the heels of a fun beer, oh, there’s a new Jason Isbell record out. We last visited Mr. Isbell on episode 51, shortly after he released Southeastern, which will probably go down as one of the greatest singer-songwriter/country/folk/alt-country/cry-in-your-car-alone/triumphant-return albums of our generation. His new album, Something More Than Free came out a couple weeks ago and Russ’s expectations couldn’t be higher. Related listening: Isbell sat down with NPR for a short interview this week. It’s good.
AND AS IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH, Kit is here A) because we like him, but B) to talk college football. I’m not going to waste your time with any predictions or teasers here, but I did want to share a link as proof that Minnesota has actually won seven national championships.
