#111 – Gueuze VS Gose and Jason Isbell covering Warren Zevon

Gueuze vs Gose

Okay, here’s the deal. There is A LOT going on right now with Georgia beer legislation, specifically SB63, or the GA Beer Jobs Bill as it has come to be known. Since this podcast isn’t a live broadcast (it’s recorded days in advance), and things are changing rapidly, it is impossible to capture the most recent developments. When we recorded this, the latest rumor was that GA Lt. Governor Casey Cagle was working behind the scenes to suppress a committee vote on SB63. Since then, a “compromise” version of the bill, with lower limits on amounts customers can consume on site at breweries and take home from breweries and brewpubs, has been unanimously approved by said committee. Sooooooooooooo, our ranting is going to sound a little misplaced and dated, but I didn’t want to post the episode before the vote because we are both fairly critical of the process (and some specific individuals) and I didn’t want to publish a n y t h i n g negative or needlessly harsh given what’s at stake here. SB63 now heads to the full GA Senate and then the the House.

In celebration of the episode that shall not be named, we dive deep into the distinctly different worlds of Gueuze and Gose. We drink a Gueuze from Belgium and a Gose from California, all the while, you guessed it, talking talking talking.

Russ brung the song this week and it’s Jason Isbell and his wife, Amanda Shires, covering a song by Warren Zevon called “Mutineer.” There’s a video below.
