Barry and Abigail discuss The Lonesome Jubilee by John Cougar Mellencamp and sample Just Like Old Times, Spring Shake-Cation, Acai Juliet, and Ambient #7 from Mastry’s Brewing Co. in St. Pete Beach, Florida.
Many thanks to Matt Dahm, Owner-Founder of Mastry’s Brewing Co., for sitting down with us to discuss the history of the brewery!
Although she did not visit the Abigail Hummel School of Speaking Smartly about Music this time, Abigail did hear similarities between The Real Life and Light the Fuse by Jack Cornell [previously interviewed on Friendship Wins (Jack Cornell and Tripping Animals Brewing Co.)]. The message of the song and the specificity of the storytelling reminded Barry of Growing Older But Not Up by Jimmy Buffett.
Ambient #7 is brewed with hops grown by the UF/IFAS Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Wimauma, Florida.
Jingles are by our friend Pete Coe.
