#115 – Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and Jake Johannsen Comedy

17 Apr

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA

It feels like it’s been raining in Atlanta for 6 months, so we drink the super-citrusy Grapefruit Sculpin IPA from Ballast Point to remind us of the sunshine. Actually, that’s not true. This episode was recorded a couple weeks ago, ostensibly when the sun was still shining. I am so bad at segues, I am actually great at them. Ballast Point’s suggested food pairings for the Grapefruit Sculpin rustle Russell’s cockles, presumably because he is an angry, angry man. SO ANGRY.

As a side note, I would like to nominate Ballast Point for best brewery website ever. Seriously, their site is great. It’s bright and clear and simple to navigate and thoroughly informative without being annoyingly pontificative. From any page on the site, whatever you’re looking for is one or two clicks away. Excellent website, clap clap clap.

For the sing this time, we listen to … a stand-up comedy routine! If you’ve learned anything by now, you’ve learned Russ has a penchant for comedy and late-night television talk shows. Here we have a short routine from Jake Johannsen, from his 46th (!!!) appearance on the Dave Letterman show, which, of course, is coming to an end this year. Video below.

Production note: Weird audio gap at 12:51, right at the start of the comedy. Buy me a new laptop.
