#51 – The Alchemist Heady Topper and Jason Isbell

16 Jul

Wherein we drink the very popular and highly regarded Heady Topper from The Alchemist up in Vermont and listen to the very popular and highly regarded Jason Isbell from over in Abbalamma.

Heady Topper is currently #1 on Beeradvocate’s Top 250 list. Interpret that however you want. Does Heady Topper deserve to be the highest rated beer in all of Beeradvocateland? I have no idea. Give it a listen to hear our PARADIGM-SHIFTING INSIGHT and INCESSANT BABBLING. Props to The Alchemist for resisting the temptation to name their operation the ALEchemist. One day the craft beer industry will mature beyond stupid beer-related puns. One day.

This episode is the latest in a long line of episodes where we talk about things we know nothing about. One thing we know nothing about is Jason Isbell, but that doesn’t stop us from listening to and discussing a song off his latest album, Southeastern, because we are both CULTURALLY and INTELLECTUALLY CURIOUS. As a special offer for reading this far, I am pleased to announce this episode, like the episode before it, actually includes TWO songs from the artist in question. We are bursting with content.

Couple programming notes:

  • Right out of the gate, my face is WAY too close to the mic. Things stabilize eventually, but I apologize that, for the first couple minutes, you are able to hear what I ate for dinner last Halloween.
  • Despite the aforementioned audio snafu, this is a good episode to listen to on headphones, if only for the second Jason Isbell song. Editing this episode was the first time I had heard the songs on headphones, and it is a completely different experience. Really interesting musical nuances. You can do whatever you want. I’m just saying.
