#85 – Foothills Seeing Double IPA and Dillinger Four

30 Jul

Foothills Brewing Seeing Double IPA

Another beer from of the Cackalatias, this time Foothills Brewing, which happens to be in the Northern of the two Cackalackies. Unfortunately for us, and for the brewery, we drank this beer WAY after the optimal freshness window. At least we think we did. There wasn’t a date on the bottle, so Russ called the brewery, live on the air. New rule: Always call the brewery live on the air, at least when we’re recording during regular business hours. Long time listeners will note this is not the first time we’ve reviewed a Foothills beer. Think back to Episode 10. Hahaha, no one remembers episode 10.

The song this week comes from Minnesota’s own Dillinger Four, who have an AWESOME website built and hosted on a little platform called Angelfire. Russ attempts to deface the board of songs because Russ is terrible. Thankfully, I thwarted his terrible plot because I am wonderful. This episode is wonderful.

#10 – Foothills and Baroness

6 Aug

Summer Break! The next handful of episodes take place at Russ’s house because that is the only vacation we could afford. In this episode, we gab about People’s Porter from Foothills Brewing, or, as Russ pronounces it at the beginning, Froothills. Special thanks to Marc for sourcing this beer. You will hear the lip of the bottle chip during opening, and I am happy to report that we each only had bloody stool for a couple days after recording (because … glass chips … swallow … intestines … never mind). Also, when talking about the label, I mentioned the WPA style, which does in fact stand for Works Project Administration. The name I was searching for was that of noted muralist Diego Rivera.

We went on to listen to “Take My Bones Away” off Yellow and Green, the new double album from Baroness. Since recording this episode, I’ve spent a lot more time with this album(s) and I just wanted to mention that the whole thing is really, really good.
