This is a really shitty episode. As in, in order to properly convey chunks of the primary narrative, we have to use the word ‘shit’ almost as punctuation. If that bothers you, you should listen anyway because get over yourself.
Don’t worry, it only takes us NINE MINUTES to actually get to the beer, but Russ weaves a pretty great, albeit shitty thread to kick things off.
The beer is a big, fat, Russian Imperial Stout from relatively-new-to-Georgia brewery Straight to Ale out of Huntsville, Alabama. This particular variation was aged in Cabernet barrels. We drink it. And talk about it. Lest there be any confusion, the beer is decidedly not shitty.
Russ suggested the song this week. “Bang Your Drum” by Dead Man Fall. It has it’s own special context, so you’ll have to listen to hear all that. The video we watched is embedded below. If you’re reading this on iTunes or some other podcatcher, you have to come to the website to see it.
