Episode 8: He's Wearing Khakis

James Dulhanty of Kitto Insurance dropped by with Russian River Pliny the Elder and 18th Street Candy Crushable so we let him tell us more about his unique adventure into the brewery insurance game. We also discuss Dog Fish Heads mace beer and pop open a few cans of beer from Michigan thanks to a recent trade with our new friend, Jake.

       
Amanda Lewton (owner) and Jack Sramek (brewer) from Tin Man Brewing Kokomo joined us to talk about the brewery, their background in the industry, and the unique situation they found themselves in when Tin Man Evansville went up for sale last year. They also brought six beers, including 2016 & 2017 Barrel Aged Csar Russian Imperial Stout.

       
Lyndon Smith and Rob Seivert from Cedar Grove, NC-based Botanist & Barrel joined us to talk about their wines and ciders. Lyndon and Rob had the distinct honor of being our first non-Indiana guests and unfortunately, the opening seconds came out distorted thanks to the software we were using. However, the rest of the episode is great. We learned a lot about their techniques, the blueberry farm they own, and the six cider/wine samples they sent us. So grab a drink and come imbibe with us!

       
On this episode, we visit our Beer of the Month sponsor, Kopacetic Beer Factory. Owner Sean Manahan let us taste several new beers he was working on; we learned about the impressive number of Indiana beers he had on tap in 2017; and we tried his first bottled beer, Murkules.

       
On Thursday, December 7, Moontown Brewing Company hosted an Indiana on Tap Tasting Society event. We made our way to Whitestown, IN to see how the new brewery was coming together. During the show we spoke with friends of the pod, Kelsey and Kevin Groover, Moontown’s owners and brewers Bobby Mattingly and Cody Peczkowski, and IOT founder Justin Knepp. Tune in to find out more about the brewery, their beers, and an interesting contest Indiana on Tap is currently holding.
