We ring in the new year with a celebration of deliquency–reviewing a beer and song both firmly lodged in 2012. The beer is the Vertical Epic Ale series from Stone Brewing Co., which is actually eleven beers. We reviewed all eleven beers dating back to February, 2002 and we got so drunk that Russ wrote and recorded a 16-minute drum solo and I tried to drink a futon. LOL SIKE WUT! We drank two vintages from the Vertical Epic series. Listen for the deets.
The song is from last year’s Menzingers album, On The Impossible Past. I am on the record as a Menzingers fan, and, despite listening to OTIP when it was released, it didn’t get much time in my ear holes last year. So, I wanted to get them into the 1 Beer 1 Song archive before their last album gets too terrible old. Get this, Russ likes it. Don’t let him tell you otherwise.
CORRECTION: In this episode, I talked all about how the Menzingers are on Fat Wreck Chords. Turns out they are on Epitaph Records. Anyone familiar with these two labels will surely understand the mistake, but that doesn’t make it any less incorrect. Starting out the new year right! Sigh …
