#43 – Blue Point No Apologies and Sorta

15 Mar

We drink No Apologies Imperial IPA from Blue Point Brewing Company with the one and only Bernie Dawg, the force behind Bernie’s Dawg Blog (http://www.berniesdawgblawg.com), and a contributor at Blog on Draft (http://www.blogondraft.com). He is also prolific on the Twitter (@berniedawg). His online efforts generate literally hundreds of millions of pageviews per second. Literally. We have so much in common with him, not having him on the show was creating a tear in the space/time/internet continuum, despite none of us having actually ever met him. Well, the tear has been sutured. You are welcome.

We debated the song selection at length. Ultimately, I reached into the archives for a neutral number from Sorta, mostly because I didn’t want Russ to have a meltdown in front of guests.

#9 – Anderson Valley Imperial IPA and Smashing Pumpkins

25 Jul

Moar Anderson Valley, this time their Imperial IPA, and a track off the new Smashing Pumpkins album.

We agree that the Anderson Valley Impy IPA is really clear and really hoppy. REALLY clear. And sort of malty. Maybe.

The Smashing Pumpkins. What is there to say? They sound like a big baby who has somehow surrounded himself with very talented musicians despite spending all his time in a townhouse he had built inside his own ass. Oh, and make sure you listen to the end for an eyebrow-raising ISIS comparison.
