#137 – Alpine Nelson IPA and Eagles of Death Metal

7 Jan

Alpine Beer Company

HAPPY NEW YEAR. This is a shorty morty to get things rolling here in 2k16.

Following the palate destruction of the last episode, we swing the pendulum in the other a different direction with a bright, hoppy IPA from Alpine Beer Company. The Nelson Golden Rye IPA showcases … wait for it … Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Rather fortuitously, Sean, our holiday correspondent, was born in New Zealand and has been to the town of Nelson. Id like to say we planned that, but sometime you just get lucky.

The song this week is from Eagles Of Death Metal. For those of you residing beneath rocks, EODM was on stage performing at the Bataclan Theater when the theater came under a devastating terrorist attack last November. They have since launched a campaign called Play It Forward where they’ve asked anyone interested to cover their song “I Love You All The Time” and they will donate 100% of the royalties to charity. We take a spin through the original version of the song.
