Hunter, Dougy Fresh, Paulie G, and co-host Jeremy Brown, get looped on some dark brews including some fruits delivered from new show sponsor, Tavour.  Paulie G stumbled(pun intended) upon Tavour while killing time surfing the web before a recent show, nudged Dougy Fresh about this interesting craft beer delivery app, and the two filled a few virtual crates of brews from around the country and waited for the magic to happen.   Unlike most of those other craft beer clubs out there, Tavour gives you the power to decide what you want them to send without any depressing monthly dues.  You’ll enjoy the daily notifications and descriptive write-ups on the newly featured beers from the many craft breweries around the county you are not able to get in your area.  Once you crack open your crate and dive in you can return to the Tavour app to rate your chosen brews.  You don’t have to know how to pronounce it, you just have to know how use it.  Tune in to hear the usual hilarity and antics from the boys including strange places Cowboy puts his vegetables, a rant about Avatar, the upcoming Titanic Two, and some Part Twos the boys would like to see.  And learn more about the only craft beer delivery app you’ll want to download immediately and start filling your own crate.  Let us know which craft beers you’ve been turned on to from Tavour.     After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate at    Cheers!   Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  Back Step Brewing;  Lickinghole Creek Brewery;  Oakshire Brewing;  Dust Bowl Brewing;  Odell Brewing Co.;  Taxman;  Crown Liquors;  Mr. G’s Liquors;  Indiana On Tap;  Alley’s Alehouse;  Old Nation Brewing;  Brew Dog;  Clam Lake Brewery; and Redemption Alewerks   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune.   Members of the Hopped Up Network.

Staring out a show a little looped may or may not have been the best way to go.  You decide.  But no matter what the outcome, it was a blast.  

We’re not certain as to the why, but Hunter’s wife was gracious enough to let the boys sit around, drink, swear, and eat her food for another hour as they enjoyed far too much great beer.  

They begin with some ESB from Back Step Brewery and continue to gush over this wonderful brewery once again before moving into a few Wisconsin brews brought back from some of Paulie’s recent travels which included more from 3 Sheeps and New Glarus.  

So, sit back and enjoy the ride with Cowboy, Dougy Fresh, Paulie G, and tonight’s host, Hunter as they indulge in some fine brew and talk a whole lot of nonsense.

Cowboy and Dougy Fresh spent a wonderful afternoon in Traverse City, Michigan with their new comrades at The Workshop Brewery.  Founder Pete Kirkwood and his Minister of Propaganda, Jessica Rohloff sat and drank with the Pigs and talked shop, beer shop 101. 

FOH Manager and bartender Greg Manley kept the afternoon powered and the table full of fresh brews as Pete gives some of finer details of their many beautifully delectable suds. 

Love and suds continuously flow through marvelous establishment from the moment you walk through the front door.  You can feel the passion for the mission from the founder, the workers, as well as the patrons, and you can taste the passion in every beer. 

A must stop whenever you’re in the Cherry Capital.  Take time to stop and smell the yeast.

Lurking in the depths of the old Monon Hotel in Crawfordsville, Indiana is a very young, and new Pig favorite, high end craft brewery, Backstep Brewing Company.  A place already rich with history now has a new community hot spot to make some history of their own.   Walking into Backstep you immediately feel you’re at home.  Owners, Jimmie Boros and Patrick Pennington, wanted a place where everyone from all walks of life could come in and enjoy some great conversation to accompany their choice of high end craft beer and spirits.  The Pigs believe they nailed that objective.  A plethora of some of the finest craft beers the state (and surrounding states) has to offer as well as an impressive bourbon collection line the back wall of the gorgeous bar.   As you’ll hear on the show, they could have ridden on the success of the tap house alone. . .but brewing great beer was the dream that started it all and now they have it all put together.

Dougy Fresh, Pauly G., and Cowboy had the utmost pleasure to spend the afternoon with Mr. Boros and Head Brewer, Josh Miller to learn more about the planning, follow through, and future goals of the brewery.   The boys knew Josh from past endeavors but were more than pleased to see how Josh has flourished as the head brewer.  His wealth of knowledge and passion for the craft both come shining through each beer he makes.  

Tune into this week’s episode and then walk, drive, fly, bus, bike, however it is you travel, as soon as possible to Back Step Brewing in C-Ville.  

You can also sample some of their tasty brews at the upcoming Micro Brew Fest and Beers Across Wabash.  We’ll see you there!

Pauly G., Tex Mex, and straight outta the Pig Pen, Griswold, take over the mics for a night of Trivia at the Broad Ripple Brew Pub.  The monthly trivia night hosted by BRBP’s GM, Billy Hannan, has become a big, and entertaining, success so the Pigs were more than willing to send a team to compete along with BRBP’s head brewer, Mr. Jonathon Mullins. 

The boys quickly found out just how challenging the night was going to be with some difficult questions from Mr. Hannan. 

But as always, with the help of some delicious brews from the BRBP, much fun was had as usual, especially when Mullins is near, some odd conversation and laughs discussing what’s new at the BRBP, child star trivia, sock & sandals, and inappropriate adult theme parks.

BPC - One From The Vault - Robot Feet Here’s an “after hours” show that slipped through the cracks. Back in the very early days before better sound quality and professionalism, the original three Pigs had one (or two) too many and decided to keep the mics hot. Long after the show ended and after many more brews, a slightly intoxicated Cowboy, Dougy Fresh, and Jordan shared some muddy thoughts on life. Topics shift quickly from Jordan’s fear of small holes, South Park, dirty girls, dating women on parole, and Cowboy’s odd fascination with Carol Burnett . . . and feet.

Pigs & Founders at Tippy’s Two (Premium)

The tap takeover night was going to well to call it quits with Founders Brewing Co.’s Adam Lepper and Tippy’s owner, Sheila Jimenez, so the boys hung out for another power hour of laughs and more Founders brews to keep the party going. 

A few local home brewers (AJ Berger, Kenny Fisher, & John Crist) joined the round table discussion and talk about some home brewing hits and disasters.  

Adam delivers some beer mixing tips and sorts out some confusion for Pauly G. on a Tap Room versus a Tap House.

The Pigs were delighted to cover the 1st annual Blood, Sweat, & Beers hosted by the fine folks of Round Town Brewery and Indiana On Tap on a beautiful afternoon in Indianapolis to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  Mackenzie Schenk, owner of Round Town, sat down to start the show and explain her thought process behind this wicked day of brew ha-ha and Brewery Beer Olympics.  Although the Pigs helped shape some of the Olympic games, Mack wanted to turn things up a notch and start the games with a growler chug which made some of the brewers nervous, and in the end, wound up being a thorn in Round town’s side as their very own Mr. Eric Fear was the first to . . . unload some of the tasty brew and put them behind right out of the gate.  In the end, the gents from Brew Link came out with the win and the first crown, and a taco hat. 

Tune in for some beer talk and laughs with many of the breweries who came out to serve some of their freshest summer brews and take part in the day’s activities. 

Joining the piggy round table during the afternoon included, David Yancey of Taxman, Eric (The Pinball Wizard) and Jerry of Round Town, Josh Miller and Jimmie Boros of Backstep Brewing, Seth of Elm Street Brewing Co., and of course the winning team from Brew Link, who are great with beers and balls.

It was a cold night in April and the boys decided to seek shelter in a quaint little tap room down in the city.  As we walked in we noticed the wooden furniture gave this place a warm and cozy feeling.  We looked around to see chalk boards that were decorated so well they looked like they belonged in an art museum.  One entire wall was covered with awards from every possible beer competition out there.    Then from across the room a Distinguished Gentleman came walking towards us, in slow motion from the back of the tap room.  Could it be?  It was King Jerry of Bier Brewery. It had been way too long since we got to sit down and chat the night away with one of our favorites. We talk about all things Bier Brewery, sample some great beers and have some great laughs. It was good to see the talented Sarah Buschman and as always, our favorite bartender Cheryl McCarthy. King Jerry even shared a bottle of this year’s incredible Barrel-Aged Sanitarium with us.  Jordan, Paulie G, Tex-Mex, and Griswold were like kids in a candy store with all the amazing beer we enjoyed that evening. What’s on the horizon for Bier Brewery?  How did some of their Biers get their names?  Is there a Blind Pig Collaboration with Bier on the Way?  How many Stars did Griswold earn this episode?  Tune in to find out the answers to these questions and more on this episode of The Blind Pig Confessions Bier Brewery and the Amazing King Jerry!

Tipsy at Tippy’s

Pauly G. and Dougy Fresh get nutty (it will make sense when you listen) at the newly located Tippy’s in Winamac, IN.  Still serving their great, well known, pizza and wings, Tippy’s now has a full bar with a variety of domestic and craft brews on tap.  Co-hosting for the evening, and taking great photos as always, is Dougy’s crush, the beautiful Michelle Dickey.  

Arriving first on the scene to scope the place out, Pauly was bit nervous when he wandered into a restaurant packed with tiny unicorns.  But all was soon well as the unicorns left to graze and a thirsty hoard of pizza and beer lovers soon packed the house.  

Joining us for the evening was the fine folks of 10-56 Brewing of Knox, IN, Mike and Erica.  A couple new to the brewery scene and already making a noise in the craft beer society.  We’ve been hearing about their brews for some time now, so we were thrilled to have them join us and finally dig into a sampling of what they have to offer.. and we were glad we did.  Starting with a little monkey nut, which had us all wanting more, they pulled out the big guns as we were some of the lucky first to try their pizza beer creation.  That’s right . . . pizza beer . . . perfect for the occasion and we were floored at how well this worked.  

A very busy and proud owner, Sheila, who wasn’t expecting quite the full house she had this evening, did find a little time to take a break and tell us a little about her friendly neighborhood bar and restaurant.  

Also joining in the fun, the good friend of 10-56, and now friend of ours, Aaron of Copperhop, grabbed a mic to introduce us to his very cool craft beer trail business you will want to know more about, as well as a little of his background and love of craft beers.  

Grab a brew, tune in, and then head on down to Tippy’s to see just what the fuss is all about.

Event sponsor, Benjamin Cannon, of Spark Joy Music kicks off Part II of this special episode from the Hops & Hertz Festival at the Fountain Square Brewery.  Ben works his way through the details of this incredible, inaugural, live music and craft beer festival dedicated to discovering great city talent, while putting up with a slightly inebriated Cowboy.   The boys discuss their own recent discoveries in music, where they go to find music today, the Manson Family, and Jack White(the Jamie Jackson of Indy).   Jeff Kelly joins the round table once again, along with one the best guitar pickers in the city, John Fell, to talk about The Graveyard Shift.  Jeff also tells all you need to know about knitting(maybe too much). Fountain Square partner, Jeff Gibson, has a brew with the boys to tell all that’s going on and what to look forward to at the brewery. The day is rounded out nicely with the sweaty clan from Mr. Clit and the Pink Cigarettes after a rousing set on the inside stage.   A great day of live music and always great beer at Fountain Square Brewery.  The boys can’t wait to cover this fantastic event again next summer.   Cheers!   Shout outs in this episode include:  Dietrich Jon;  Chris Burch;  Musical Family Tree;  Square Cat Vinyl;  Indy In-Tune and Radiothon;  Mina & The Wondrous Flying Machine;  Kammy’s Kause;  and a special thanks to 800lb Gorilla for the use of their tune, Radboy, from their new album to end today’s show.  Be sure to catch those cats live!

  The Crew:  Our gracious host for the day, Ryan Douglas; Brendan(Douglas Fresh) Douglas; Patrick(Pauly G.) Hall; Jeremy Nicely; Rick Greenless; and one slightly toasted, Warren Kluck Where to begin on this one?  This was Part Three of an afternoon in South Bend, Indiana on the weekend we introduced the newest Blind Pig, Mr. Warren Kluck.  By the end of hour three and a twenty minute rant on his hatred of Pink Floyd, we were wondering if we made a horrible mistake. Of course we’re kidding…we love our Warren.   The group was a bit drunk and ornery on hour three of the craft beer marathon… which of course we had to throw whiskey into the mix.    We talk Detroit Lions football, old ass QB’s, first tattoos, some rare but insightful words from Rick Greenless, and the re-release of Sgt. Pepper, Warren’s favorite Beatles album.   Lots of great craft beers went into the making of this episode including:  18th Street Devil’s Conclave; Prairie’s Sour Ale aged on Ginger; Bier Brewery’s award winning, Sanitarium; and we snuck in a little Jameson Black Barrel whiskey just for good measure and to be sure everyone got ripe.   Cheers!

We had the special pleasure of being invited to coved Kammy's Kause this year on it's opening night.  We couldn't have been more humbled being part of this incredibly annual two day live music event for such a great cause.  We had a blast from moment we stepped into the American Legion park and it just kept getting better as the afternoon and evening flew by, much to quickly.   Ben Jarvis of Audiodacity has a brew with the boys before going on stage and tells a little about the work they have going on with their upcoming 2nd album.   The man who can be miserable in any situation(yet has impeccable hygiene), Ryan M. Brewer jumps on board and things go from weird to He Man and Captain Planet talk.   Of course we had to have the man who put this all together, Mr. Jared Hiner, for his beautiful daughter, Kammy.  We couldn't believe how calm and cool this cat could be with so much going on around us, but he has so much support from family, friends, and musicians in and around Indy, he can now enjoy this amazing event he's built.  And we round out the show with our new friends from 800lb Gorilla after their amazing set.  They give some backstory on who they are and we talk about their upcoming album, Commander Wax.  They let use a couple of their tunes to kick off and end this episode, so be sure crank it up and join us at their album release party on October 13th at the Fountain Square Brewing Co.   Lots of great conversation and some great beers were destroyed over the afternoon including some splendid brews from Central State Brewing, Flix Brewhouse(who also sponsored Kammy's Kause), and Taxman Brewing Company.

BPC - Episode 117 - Jockey Box Hero Part Hung

We had the utmost pleasure covering Indiana On Tap’s inaugural Jockey Box Hero at The Hatch in Broad Ripple a few weeks ago.   It was the perfect day for craft beer and karaoke…behind a live band!   A special occasion is certain way as our very own Cowboy got to perform against some talented Indy folk and the one and only William Hung.   We enjoyed talks with old friends from The Moontown Brewing Company, Mackenzie from The Roundtown Brewery, Nikki Reed and Carter, and our new friends at 99.5 WZPL, Toni Dekeyser and Dave Smiley of the Smiley Morning Show we all know and love.  The WZPL folks got very comfortable speaking their minds with the Pigs… and we enjoyed every minute of it.  We get some dirty secrets about Nikki as well as some awful driving tips from Dave.   And of course we had to have American Idol’s, Mr. William Hung hang out (no pun intended) with the boys for a round as well as some jeering from Cowboy.  Hung is Mr. Infotainment!   You won’t want to miss Part Hung of Jockey Box and we better see all of you there next summer!

The Pigs hit the airwaves to sponsor and cover a fantastic live music and craft beer festival at Fountain Square Brewery, the second of five Discovery Music events sponsored by Spark Joy Music and Musical Family Tree. Non stop, high energy talent hit the stages at noon and didn’t stop till after midnight. We started off the day with a quick visit from Grover, followed by Aaron from Musical Family Tree. We were all a bit ashamed to not know more about this non-profit organization doing so much for the music scene in and around Indy. Aaron educates us on the Family Tree as well as a little about her own band and where they can be found. Fountain Square’s, Luke Nelson joins the boys once again to tell us about the beer on hand at the event, as well as one made especially for Jackie Martinez, and what’s brewing in the upcoming future. We end Part One with a very special visit from Mr. Jared Hiner, the man behind Kammy’s Kause. We know all our fans in Indy know all about this incredible yearly event, but for those outside Indy not familiar yet, Jared goes into great detail about his organization, the upcoming event to benefit families dealing with 4p-, also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome (WHS), an extremely rare chromosome disorder, and his beautiful daughter, Kammy, who is the inspiration for it all. The Pigs were invited to cover the 14th Annual Kammy’s Kause, the two day music festival coming up on August 18th - 20th at the Fortville American Legion Park. This year’s event includes: Kammy’s Kidzone, Kammy’s Ride, a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, balloon artists, bounce houses, live art, food trucks, 27 midwest bands, silent auKtion, merchandise, great people, free camping (tents only) and parking.

This is a special Xmas in July,  Balls Out, episode not for those with sensitive ears.   The “Explicit” light went on early in this one. . . and never went out.   What happens when WWE’s Kevin Thorn stops by to have a few brews with the Pigs at Alley’s Alehouse?  Lots of fun and chaos!   The show got so out of hand, it took over 11 months to edit and release with an NC17 rating, but it was too good and the boys had too much fun on this one to not let it out.   Joining us for the evening(although he may wished he was not there) was the tenderloin, Chris Clark.  No way to break this one down.  Although he’s known to most the world as Kevin Thorn or Mordecai, we are privileged to know the man behind the tights, our friend, Kevin Fertig.  And Kevin goes deep and tells all in this one.  From his love of spandex, wrestling woes(and where fingers sometimes go), to an odd one on one in politics with Dougy Fresh.  But we also get the softer side to this friendly giant as we learn his number one focus in life, family.  (Which is about the only sweet thing to happen in this episode.) They get a bit personal and divulge what they are all wearing underneath, Jordan once again claims his love of the Dickel, and then they explore things they never thought they would . . . or should.  But through all the weirdness, they do talk beer and whiskey as they enjoy some Romantic Chemistry from Dogfish Head Brewery, Tiberius from Scarlet Lane, and a shot of Few Bourbon. An all adult show for certain, but an all around entertaining night they can’t wait to do again. . . next time in the privacy of Kevin’s private bar where they can really cut loose.   Cheers!

Always the gentleman, Mr. Brian Graham invited the Pigs back to his Four Day Ray Brewing home for an interesting evening of old school, blind beer tasting. Joining in on the lively evening is local comedian, Jeremy Brown.  The gang goes back to early pre-craft drinking roots for some blind taste testing of seven commercial beers from pale ales to heavy malts.  Tune in to see which seven beers were put to the Pig test and which one surprised everyone by topping the charts.  New friends of the show drop by and join in as well as they also celebrate Pig Pen member, Riley M. Wunnenberg's, birthday on this jubilant evening at FDR.  The conversation goes in many directions between beers as they discuss bas/offensive possible new beer names, Smokey and the Bandit, and Jordan's love for FDR's new Yoga Pants night.  The show rounds out with updates from Jeremy Brown and where he can be found, and what is fresh on Four Day Ray's taps and upcoming summer fun.  (And remember the FDR Beer Garden is now open!)  Will be able to catch FDR along with the Pigs at Indy In-Tune's Spring Radiothon going down all day next Saturday (June 3rd) at our home, Alley's Alehouse in Fishers, Indiana.  Come on out for a day of brews and live grooves for a great local charity.

The Pigs were treated to some southern hospitality on their recent trip to Memphis at High Cotton Brewery. The welcome mat was rolled out for our arrival to this one of kind, spacious, warm, countryesque brewery with some of the most delectable brews in Tennessee.  After a few brews to jumpstart the afternoon we sat down with Ryan, the owner and head brewer, and Cayleigh Tralongo, taproom manager and resident whiskey drinker. Lots of intense, comedic discussions on the pro and cons of high gravity brews, Ryan's brewing history, a hate filled rant on Bud, and Dougie Fresh accidently outs Cowboy.  The brews flowed, highlighted by a couple of our High Cotton favorites, their luscious stout and ESB, as the conversation cruised throughout the afternoon with some shout outs to Bailey Spaulding of Jackalope Brewing Company, Eilise Lane Servies of Scarlet Lane Brewery, Memphis Made Brewing, and the Yazoo Brewing Company.  Tune in for the ride and be sure to get to High Cotton on your next trip to Memphis for some fantastic beer and fine southern hospitality.

Elvis, Johnny Cash, Car Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis. . . and yeah that's right, now the Pigs have recorded at the legendary Sun Records. We had the sheer pleasure of sitting with Sun's engineer, Ples Hampton, to hear some of the amazing history behind this amazing recording studio and the birthplace of Rock and Roll.  We were giddy and full of goosebumps from the moment we stepped into the studio.  Ples, whose father was a producer at Ardent Records for over forty years, is well connected to the Memphis music scene and its rich history from the early days before the term "rock and roll" was ever coined (which we do dig into in this episode) to today's artists still making their way through Memphis and Sun Records to lay down tracks.  We couldn't have picked a better way to record at Sun.  Ples was nice enough to put some time aside for us before heading out the door to the premier of the new Sun Records show that was premiering on CMT that very evening.  And some great stories were told, including some secret nuggets, or happy accidents, that made it into some well known recordings.  Tune into to hear about the humble beginning of Mr. Sam Phillips as well as the pioneering disc jockey, which without him Sam's artists may never have been heard, the one and only Dewey Phillips.

BPC - Episode 93 - That Sweet Indiana Corn Whiskey

We've been raving about this whiskey since it first touched our lips, so it was a pleasure to be invited up to South Bend, Indiana and sit with owner and distiller, Charlie Florance, to talk whiskey. . . and drink whiskey! Also joining the boys on this fabulous afternoon was the brewmaster of the Twisted Crew Brewing Company, Mr. Josh Lakins (don't try and pronounce last name...he spells it wrong).  Josh had recently won the Indiana Whiskey Company's Whiskey and Whiskers competition and was in town for the crowning.  Piggy, Dougy Fresh, came in as runner-up so it only made sense to make the day a celebration and get everyone together to eat, drink, and be merry.  We can't say enough good things about Indiana Whiskey.  This Veteran owned and operated facility, specializing in small batch whiskey utilizes only those fine Indiana made and grown products, from the stills to the grains, this is Indiana.  This quaint and cozy place just makes you feel at home.  The always warm greeting provided by manager and mixologist, Molly Kolecki, along with her killer cocktails will put you at ease keep you coming back for the Hoosier hospitality as well as this fantastic whiskey.  And we loved her even more when she put Cowboy to work about 10 minutes after arriving.  Pretty sure he ended up wearing more whiskey than he transferred, but he smelled wonderful the rest of the day. Tune into this whiskey fueled episode to learn more about Indiana Whiskey and some of their upcoming events, such as their monthly Prohibition Comedy days that has brought in some of the funniest comics from the area as well as Chicago and Detroit.  And keep on the lookout for Part Two when we super charge our buzz with some treats brought up from Twisted Crew for another hour of laughs.  Shout out on this episode include Danny Boy Beer Works which seems very appropriate on St. Patrick's Day today.

This week’s episode runs a bit long due to the amount of beer sampling we just had to do on our visit to The Guardian Brewery in Muncie.

Guardian’s Bill Kerr and Jason Phillips took us on a delightful beer journey as they told us their story from the days of home brewing, their time at The Heorot, to owning and operating their own brewpub. 

The little brewery with big flavors will be getting a new home this May which will allow them to more beer to their thirsty, ever-growing patrons. 

The night was full of laughs (which oddly increased as the samples increased).  Jordan’s peculiar use of the words “sports games” and “pocket book” leads us to believe he may be a much older man than we think…or woman . . with a possible drinking problem, and Dougie Fresh has to explain how the hell “wet old barn” is a pleasant term for describing a beer. 

Frank the Tank may have drawn us to The Guardian, but the Sex Panther and array of other great beers on tap will keep us coming back for more.  Tune into hear about all the brews we tried this fine evening, including their recent release, Sweetie Pie Sugar Cream Pie Pale Ale Stout, made with real sugar cream pie from Wick’s Pies Inc.  They seriously just toss whole pies in there.  And it’s dreamy.

After a relaxing drive through some of Indy’s southern, country roads, Jordan and Dougie Fresh found themselves in Bargersville at the doors of The Taxman Brewing Company.

Although we are stoked to soon have a Taxman tap house in Fortville, Indiana this summer, a little closer to our neck of the woods, a trip to the birthplace of Taxman is a must for fellow lovers of fine suds.

We toured the production facility before setting up shop on the 2nd floor of their spacious, country-esque tap house and restaurant with our Taxman guides, Chief Production Officer, Colin McCloy and the Head Brewer and manager, David Yancey. Loving everything we’ve had from Taxman before the visit, we were determined to find one brew we could turn our nose up to say, “Meh, It’s alright”.  But damn it… these guys are just too damn good.   We just found more Taxman beer we now love. But love is a good thing, right?  Their Belgian inspired beers are complex yet easy on the palate and they all have rich, almost mesmerizing aromas.  Tune into tonight’s episode to hear just what is going on at Taxman, stories of inspiration, and a little history of how they came to be.   Not only serving some of the best craft beer in the state, they have a unique and delicious farm to table restaurant that you must treat yourself.  Find out what's going on in 2017 at Taxman, their upcoming tap house opening this summer in Fortville, Indiana, and the day we are all patiently awaiting, Death and Taxes Day and the release of Evasion.  Justin McIntosh of The Dump Buckets hops on in the 2nd half of the show to talk about his amazing artwork that was inspired by the great craft beer scene in Indy.  He gives some shout outs to some of our fellow craft beer supporters in town including Indy Beer Sleuth and Thespeakpodcast.  A special mention in this week's show for Indy Pies & Pints which takes place next Friday night at the Ivy Tech Culinary Center.  All proceeds from the event will benefit Arts and Learning.

Our first encounter with those tasty brews from Grand Junction Brewery was at the 2016 Noblesville Brewfest, and boy were we pleased.

We can’t get enough of these guys… or their delightful brews. We are joined once again this week at Alley’s Alehouse by Holly Joy Cole of New Holland Brewery and Jeremy Nicely of Evil Czech Brewery and Public House. Returning this week to Co-host is the Grandfather of Indiana beer, Mr. Ron Smith, who gives some insight into Black Lagers, Hops, and Saisons vs. Farmhouse ales. When we start a show, typically everyone at the table is drinking a different beer until we get into the reviews for the evening. Oddly enough, tonight, we looked around and everyone at the table was sipping on a Taxman Bean Counter, which has quickly become a Pig favorite at Alley’s. But as always, we got to dig into other craft beers as well. And tonight was a treat with two great breweries in the house. Jeremy brought us the Plato 14 Black Lager, and if we didn’t already love him enough for introducing us to the Evil Bigsby, he took it up a notch and brought us some delightful and inspiring Barrel Aged Bigsby. Not to be outdone, Holly brought out the big guns with a little New Holland Dragon’s Milk Vanilla Chia, some Cabin Fever Brown Ale for those chilly winter nights, and then took us over the edge with some wonderfully complex New Holland Beer Barrel Bourbon. Another splendid evening with good friends and great beer and whiskey. Cheers!

We were stoked to finally get into Four Day Ray Brewing.  While we were patiently waiting for this prime venue in Fishers, Indiana to open, we had the pleasure of trying a few of their brews at the Noblesville Brew Festival this Fall and we fell in love with them instantly.   Tune into tonight's episode as we celebrated National Stout Day as we sat and drank and with owner, Brian Graham, who had over twenty years of home brewing experience before stepping out and opening his own brewery with the help of brewer, Mitch Ackerman, and executive chef, Andrew Miller.  They are taking Fishers by storm with a creative menu and straight forward, full bodied brews that will make any beer lover salivate.  We spent the evening enjoying some fantastic brews while Brian tells the story of FDR and some of its upcoming endeavors and new brews, including their absolutely delicious Imperial Stout which was just tapped a few hours ago to celebrate Black Friday and quench the thirst of the holiday shoppers.  We formed a great friendship with FDR over some fantastic beers and great conversation.  Look for many more Blind Pig/FDR future shows and celebrations. Shout outs to Great Lakes Brewing Company, and to still one of the kings of the stouts, Guinness(although Cowboy, unlike the millions of stout lovers out there, sadly and oddly disagrees) Cheers!

Unpretentious:  The one word that can summarize the dining philosophy as it relates to their cuisine, service staff, and ambiance of Madison’s which located in the heart of downtown Pendleton, IN. Through the little hall just past the garden patio and indoor family dining rests a charming little, prohibition era like, adult only bar which boasts one of the best stocked bars in the Midwest with an eclectic wine list, an amazing array of whiskeys, and a wide variety of domestic, craft beers.   The Pigs thought they died and went to heaven.  The Pigs were invited for their World Tour of Whiskey event and had the pleasure of chatting with owner and chef, Dan Stackpoole, before their delightful whiskey journey.  It was easy to figure out after hearing Dan talk about his passion for food and drinks just why Madison’s has such a fantastic selection of fine wines and whiskeys.  Only the best of the best make their way to this overflowing bar of goodies.  The warm, quant, brick atmosphere, along with the savory menu and mammoth drink selection, is enough to provide anyone with a congenial time while dining at Madison’s. But it’s the great staff and local regulars who treat everyone who walks in the door as part of the family that will keep you coming back time and time again. Tune in to this week’s episode to hear about Dan’s journey to Madison’s, it’s great food and drinks, and some of the great live, original music you may encounter while you are there.  Also hear from Mayor elect, Dwayne, who joined the boys after the whiskey tour as they discussed some of their favorites of the evening. Shout outs included: Fall Perk’s Coffee House, Quack Daddy Donuts, The Bier Brewery, Redemption Alewerks, Taxman Brewing Company, The Guardian Brewing Company, Chapman’s Brewing Company, Chilly Water Brewing, Upland Brewing Company, Fountain Square Brewing Company, Rick Garrett(the tenderloin man),  Evil Czech Brewery, Tin Man Brewing Company, and the 12.05 Distillery.

Sitting just outside of Fountain Square in downtown Indianapolis is the cool (no pun intended) little brewery serving some incredibly smooth and tasty beers.   Needing to cool their hoofs, a couple of the Pigs made their way to Chilly Water Brewing Company after hearing countless raves about the place from some of Indy’s finest brewers and beer lovers.   They strolled through the outside seating area and into the laid-back atmosphere inside Chilly Water where they were warmly greeted by owner, Skip Duval.  After a couple pre-show brews, the boys sat with Skip, along with his business partner and brewer, Dan Krzywicki, to learn more about Chilly Water and some of it’s delicious beverages such as their Daytripper Imperial IPA and their Built To Last Pilsner (which we could not get enough of while we were there).  Tune into hear why we can thank the Grateful Dead for helping to deliver Chilly Water to Indy, as well as some of the beer and music events coming up in the near future such as the Black Friday Turn It Up Bottle Release and their One Night Stands. Come for the beer, stay for the great food and music that will accompany some of the finest lagers in the state.

Nestled in the quiet town of McCordsville is a brewery making some big noise.  Scarlet Lane is still young in the Indy brewery scene but making some sophisticated brews to temp the pickiest of palettes.  Owner and Head Brewer, Eilise Lane, cut her chops in the brewing business out in Oregon, and when the home brewing system started to overtake her home, Eilise and her husband Nick decided to pack it up, move back home to the Midwest, and start their own brewing business.  What began as a production business quickly turned into a tap room due to the droves of locals who kept stopping by trying to get a cold one.  So they found a corner to throw in some taps and a bar for a place to belly up to and it didn't take long for the word to get out.  The good people of McCordsville have become quite protective of what like to think of as their Scarlet Lane.  Cowboy, Pat, and Dougy Fresh had the pleasure of celebrating the Bicentennial at the Scarlet Lane Chili Cook Off.  Unfortunately, we were unable to dazzle the crowd with our chili techniques, but that didn't stop us from having a great time while enjoying some delicious Scarlet brews. Tune in and hear as Eilise goes into depth on her journey from craft beer fan to craft beer master and why it's Halloween every day at Scarlet Lane.  Then make your way to Scarlet Lane and meet us for a few pints. Cheers!

Nobelsville Brewfest was such an amazing event and the weather could not have been better. So many great beers and wines to choose from and the crowd was fantastic. It was the perfect way to kick off the Fall. We were surrounded in the beer tent with lots of old friends such as the reigning King of Next Hop Model, Dan Gohr of Redemption Alewerks, and we met many new brew friends as the day charged on fueled by some incredible craft beer. In this episode at the Brewfest we are joined in segments by owner and brewer of Heady Hollow, Keefe Pietri, Grand Jucntion Brewing Co.’s Jon Knight and Shawn Kessel, Four Day Ray’s Brian Graham, Fuzic Media’s Brent Oakley, and a very tipsy Riley Wunnerenberg from our very own Pig Pen. We would like to thank Riley for running us samples all day as we worked the mics. A big thanks to Greg and Julia of The Noblesville Brewfest for inviting us to cover this wonderful, annual event. We are already looking forward to being there again next year. Special mentions to Metazoa, Redemption Alewerks, Flix Brewhouse, Scarlet Lane, and the Bier Brewery (we’re not gonna lie… we kinda missed Jerry) Tune in and make sure you don’t miss out next fall. We’ll see you there! Cheers!!

  A crunch, a munch, a jingle, he’ll make your spine a-tingle. You think the recent clown sightings have been off-putting? Wait till Crepitus is unleashed onto the earth. On a recent trip to Northern Michigan, we had the pleasure of sitting down with creator and director of the upcoming horror film, Haynze Whitmore. There was already a lot of buzz around this film prior to casting, but once casting was complete, that buzz turned into a frenzy. Along with Michigan natives, Mike Hard of Hell, Michigan and Caitlin Williams of Cheboygan, they also snagged the young Raiden Moore known for his roles in the hit TV adaptation of Stephen King’s Haven as well as the Lizzie Borden Chronicles, staring Christina Ricci. Playing the part of the deputy, as well as a producer on the film, is model/actor/film producer, Lance Paul of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Lance is also the founder of Ginger Knight Entertainment. Playing Mother in this nightmare is the young and beautiful, Jackey Hall of Little Rock, Arkansas, known for her work on The Invited, Biohazard: Patient Zero, Walking Dead, and Van Wilder: Freshman Year. And to round out this already fantastic cast is none other than Mr. Bill Moseley. We all fell in love with Bill when he broke out onto the scene as the unforgettable Chop Top in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Recently he’s given us the chilling delight of playing Otis B. Drifwood in the Rob Zombie films House of 1000 Corpses and the Devils Rejects. Soon he will be terrifying audiences as the creepy, killer clown, Crepitus. When the moon is bright and you can catch a sight of his crooked ol’ Crepitus pout, then you better run fast, cuz he’ll snatch your ass, and eat all your insides out. Many kudos to Mr. Eddie Renner, who along with his wife Sarah, wrote the screenplay for this film. Longtime friend of our own Dougy Fresh , (both Cheboygan, Michigan natives) Eddie is an incredible artist who provided us with our wonderful cover photo art work and could very well be making the artwork for the Blind Pig Confessions Crepitus Ghost Pepper Stout which will be released in limited addition for this film. You may just have to show up at its premier to get some. We wish Eddie Renner could have made this show along with Haynze but we couldn’t persuade him to leave sunny Florida to be with us for this one. But we’re sure we will be back with the Crepitus gang again as the filming gets underway. We had a blast talking horror and drinking brews all afternoon with Haynze. Tune into hear more about Crepitus(and follow up plans) and how you can become part of this soon to be horror classic. We’d like to thank Alisa Doe-Klinger for hosting this show at the UAW Black Lake (stayed tuned for the upcoming episode with Alisa) and for fueling the show with some of the delicious craft brews available at the Black Lake Golf Club. Shout outs to Benjamin Slocum and Beard’s Brewery's Holy Diver, Goodfellows Grill, and our friend Steven Welsh, whom you may know better as Captain Smee of Attack of the Show.

A pre-Halloween special for all our beer and horror fans out there.   We were joined by friends and horror fans, Warren and Angela Fisher for this frightful evening of booze and fun.  We discussed some of our favorite, as well as least favorite, horror flicks to date and we find out which horror movie makes Angela tingle. (We imagine Warren has had it on nightly since this recording.)  Another old Alabama shipmate of Dougy Fresh, Pauly Boy - Paul Murdock, stops by to tell us all about Sodom Maniac and we all agree Blair Witch sucked.   We were kept on our toes in this one with the help of Taxman default and Upland’s Bad Elmer Porter.   Special mention to Haynze Whitmore and Eddie Renner and their upcoming horror movie, Crepitus, staring Bill Moseley due to be unleashed in the theaters next fall.  Tune in Friday night for our 2nd installment of this year’s Halloween Special with  creator and director of Crepitus, Haynze Whitmore.

Talented musicians? Hell yes. But just all around good guys and fun to chill with and have a few brews. Kyle Buck and Aaron Nicely of The Stampede String Band stopped by Alley’s Alehouse to have some beer with the boys and tell ‘em about what’s going on with the band, as well a some Stampede history. They discussed the soon to be released new live album while sipping on Alpine Pilsner from Bier Brewery, which went over well with the group. They switched over to O’Keeffe’s Irish Red from Evil Czech as they got a little Evil/Stampede anecdote.

They talk a little Colts and a lot of Cubs and their hopeful appearance in the upcoming World Series(sorry Aaron) and they relive a couple scorpion burger challenges that did not go well.

Tune in for the convo and then get out to see Stampede live. They will be at Indiana Red barn tomorrow evening (Oct 22nd), returning to Fiddler’s Hearth on 11/22, and the Vogue w/Reverand Peyton on November 23rd.

Thanks to Stampede for letting us use tracks, 5 Rider and 3 Miles to Go to open and close this week’s episode.

Shout outs this week included Fiddlers Hearth(which Dougy, Cowboy, and Pat are actually enjoying some brews and live tunes at tonight), Ben Myers and his scorpion plight, Evil Czech, Adam Cox of Suspended Audio, Blue Mafia, James and the Drifters, and Jerry Connor of Bier Brewery, who if he had his way, would be on every show . . . we’ll keep a chair open for him.

Due to the length of this episode, we decided to release this as a weekday special. So all you faithful listeners get two episodes this week. And a special episode it is. We had the pleasure to be selected to cover DigIn~A Taste of Indiana this year and we beat the heat and had an incredible time and made many new friends. Kolsch and pilsners were the main theme of the day, which were perfect for this hot summer afternoon. So many great breweries and chefs, and restaurants were showcased we got a bit dizzy trying to get them all on the air. Tonight’s segments were split between the following guests: DigIn’s very own, and past guest, Mr, Thom England, Bee Coffee Roasters, One World Catering, Robert Rolfe Feddersen, Justin Miller – owner of Black Acre, Emily Grounds of Deer Creek Brewery, Kelly from 18th Street Brewery, Sean Lewis and Brock, Head Keg Monkey, Hicorse of Flat 12, and Steven Hackney of S’more Mobile which is sooo much more than just your everyday s’mores….think big… think alcohol. We spent the entire day next to the fine folks from Madison’s being intoxicated by the scent of grilled duck, and just as the day was coming to an end and we finally got Dan Stackpole on the mic… wouldn’t you know it… they killed the power in the park. So we thought, screw the 15-minute segment, let’s get over to Madison’s for an entire show. So be sure to join us next Tuesday, Oct 25th at Madison’s in Pendleton for a night of brews and fine whiskey. This event should be a must for every beer enthusiast and foodie out there each summer. Big thanks to Bier Brewery for taking extra good care of us (as they always do) during the event. We love you! And thanks Roberto Cavazos Jr. for stepping out of the Pig Pen to help co-host this incredible event with us. Cheers!

Also joining us is my ol’ shipmate, Brad Ringstmeier of Perpetual Moto Discovery who has his own BPC episode which will be released soon.

This episode picks up midstream at Metazoa Brewing Company after local musician, singer/songwriter, Robert Rolfe Feddersen, finished his last set and joined us for some more cold brews and hilarious, tipsy conversation.  Metazoa's own Haley Fennel was still hanging strong from our first show and still filling our bellies with delicious Metazoa brews.  Robert's beautiful wife, Terri Piet Feddersen, also jumped on a mic to round out this fun evening with new friends.  A high brew fueled conversation went in a number of different directions in this one from vinyl records, Cream, social media, the return of Dougy's glorious beard, and Pat's odd ability to hear audio warmth(which may have been the beer talking).  Some shout outs to DigIn~A Taste of Indiana, Beards Brewery, and Public House Cinema.  (And our apologies to PHC for being so loud during the outdoor movie.  The stupid sun went down a little too early.) Robert is more than just a talented musician, he is a gentleman with a big heart and a true lover and promoter of craft beer and music.   All music in this episode is of course provided by none other than Mr. Robert Feddersen.  Check out tonight's special episode and be sure to jump over to Robert's music page to find out where he'll be playing next.  We promise there will be craft beer!

It's comedy night once again on Blind Pig Friday Confessions at Alley's Alehouse. Seemed like the perfect night to air this episode since not only is Doug Stanhope mentioned, he is also performing tonight at Morty's. We are joined by comedians Mr. Rick Garrett and the pleasantly plump, Jeremy Brown, for an evening of debauchery. This is the 2nd installment of this episode, so as you will quickly hear... we were quite ripe when this one begins. We can't apologize enough to Rick's sweet wife, Holly Garrett for making it through the whole evening with us jackasses. She does however provide a sound clip that will go down in the Blind Pig History books as one of best. We somehow fit in a review of Evil Czech's Vanilla Rye Porter between the shenanigans. We get some stand-up comedy horror stories, Rick tells us how John Denver blocked his chances of entering the priesthood, Jeremy describes the "art" of comedy, and Cowboy brings the entire group to complete silence. This is one that can't be missed. (Ok, none of them should) Too much to go over on this one. You'll have to tune in and take it all in. (No pun intended) Some comedy favorites mentioned such as Michael Malone (also in town performing tonight at Morty's), of course Doug Stanhope, the brilliant D Jay Dangler and Junior Stopka. Beware, this one may contain a fair amount of sailor language. Oh.... and Dane Cook sucks! Cheers!

Whenever one mentions Dragon’s Milk around the Pigs, we tend to get a little excited.  So when we had the chance to sit with Holly Joy Cole of New Holland Brewery, we were overjoyed.  Holly joined the boys at the round table at Alley’s Alehouse to talk, not just about the wonder that is Dragon’s Milk, but about all the fantastic brews and spirits that can be found at the brewery or on the shelf at your favorite party store.

She also brought with her a few New Holland brews to sample (Monkey King farmhouse and Full Circle kolsch) while she gave us some of the backstory of New Holland as well as some of the upcoming events such as the Porter’s Perfect Pint which is happening next Saturday, Oct 1st, and the Filthy Pumpkin which going down at Chathum Tap in Fishers on Oct 25th.  Located near the shores of Lake Michigan in the small but beautiful Dutch city of Holland, Michigan, New Holland Brewing has been a staple in the beer scene since 1996, and they have just opened their new distillery and brewpub in Grand Rapids, Michigan, New Holland Brewing The Knickerbocker.    Also joining us this week was our good buddy, Benjamin Cannon of Spark Joy Music, who’s episode for Friday Night Confessions releases next Friday, September 30th.  There was also the late, special guest appearance, straight out of the Pig Pen, of Mr. Riley Wunnenberg.   It was a special night to celebrate the birthday of our own, Hunter Blind Pig, with some great beer and laughs.  We can’t wait to do more with Holly and New Holland Brewing in the future.   We’re not certain yet, but we may have coined their new tag line for 2017.  You’ll have to listen and find out what it is.  Many shout outs in this episode, including Black Acre Brewing Co, Central State Brewing, Jeremy Nicely and Evil Czech Brewery and Public House, Urban Chestnut, and the Fiddler’s Hearth.

If you listen to our show, you know we mention quite often that with all these new breweries opening, what seem like daily, they better be putting out a quality product if they want to have some staying power.

We recently stepped into Metazoa which opened its doors just this past April and we were pleased to taste so many quality beers from such a young brewery. We spent a beautiful evening on their large outside seating area with Haley Fennell to fill us in on this young Indy brewery while live grooves were flowing indoors from the talented Robert Rolfe Feddersen.

We had an array of great Metazoa brews while enjoying a great view of downtown Indianapolis as the sun went down.

Metazoa is a big, bright, beautiful brewery that would fit in on any corner of San Diego, but we are pleased they have planted themselves in Indianapolis. Not only are they making some solid beers, this animal friendly brewery, is also giving back part of their profits to wildlife funding. Great view, pet friendly, live music, and good brew… what more do you need?

Tune in and find out which were our favorite brews of the night and then get down to Metazoa to quench your thirst.

Dougy Fresh takes the Pigs back to his home in Northern Michigan for the 1st in the Northern Michigan series as the boys take over the airwaves at Goodfellow's Grille on Mackinaw Island.  This episode also features Beard's Brewery from Petoskey, MI.  They had taken over the taps that evening just one day before their anniversary party at their own taproom the following day when they made the big announcement that they were expanding and moving to a bigger, well known spot in Petoskey.  This was our introduction to Beard's and we were not disappointed.  It was quickly and clearly recognized just why this young brewery was already growing.  J.C. Olmo of Goodfellow's joined the roundtable to tell us all about Goodfellow's and all it has to offer before mixing us some killer cocktails of his own which comes out in part two of this night to be released soon. We're not sure how Beard's Ben Slocum finds time to brew with everything he has going on, but we are sure glad he does.  He is just one of the team of fine brewers at Beard's putting out some delicious beer.  We struggled to find any fault with everything we sampled that evening.  We were so impressed at one point, we just sat in awe of the lacing still thick on a glass which had been sitting empty for more than 30 minutes. And as bourbon barrel aged lovers, we were ecstatic to be some of the first to be drinking their newest batch that was not being made available to the public til the following day.  And it was glorious.  It reminded us of another of our favorites out of Indy, Sanitarium, from The Bier Brewery.  Each unique in their own right, but both equally fantastic.  It was a thick, rich, chocolatey, bourbon delight in a glass.  We had such a good time we are already making plans to go back to the Island for the big Halloween bash hosted by Goodfellow's Grille in October.  Thank you again, Greg Klinger, for inviting us to this fine establishment where you'll find some of the best food and drinks in Mackinaw. Shout outs in this one to HopCat, a mutual favorite craft brew place of ours and our new friends Hail Danza!

The tables were turned a bit on this one as the Pigs spent some time in the hot seat and got a couple of their freshest home brews evaluated by EZ Eric Fox & Dr. Hopenstein himself, Sean Hopenstein Manahan of Flat12 Bierwerks. Some time back, Sean stepped out of the shadow of his pop, aka. Atticus Finch, and decided to leave law school and brew beer. And let me tell you, there are a lot of happy people he decided to do just that. He is brewing some marvelous beer helping to put Flat12 on the Beer Map.

Lots of great brewing talk and tips in this episode as Sean and EZ give us some pointers on sharpening our brew skills as we enjoyed a few beers and laughs before they finally threw us out the door. And it's not every day we get to pass around a Ch'ti Blonde. . . so we had that going for us.

Looking forward to getting back to chat with these gents again and do a little Pig/Flat12 collaboration in the near future.

We thought about taking a departure from our usual slap stick antics for a evening and have a serious conversation about male pattern baldness. But then local stand-up comedians, Rick Garrett and Jeremy Brown showed up and we said, “Screw it. Here we go again”.

Rick is coming hot off his Nuvo nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedian, and Jeremy was coming hot off the buffet at the Golden Coral.

You’ll hear one the greatest Star Trek jokes and about Rick’s battered up bride and about one of our favorite strip clubs in northern Wisconsin. Rich and Jeremy tell us some of their stand-up nightmares and why “All Ages” doesn’t always mean “ALL” ages.

We were having too much fun to stop, so tune into part one of Comedy Night at Alley’s and be on the lookout for part two which will be released in a couple weeks. Some shout outs to other local comedians Jeffrey Lewis Lance and the late Big Jim Leugers.

And a huge thanks to Holly Garrett for being so sweet and patient with us idiots all evening.

The boys enjoy an evening at the Broad Ripple Brew Pub with Head Brew Master, Mr. Jonathon Mullens. We first met Jonathon at Indiana's Next Hop Model(hosted by Indiana On Tap) when he left our boy Cowboy alone on stage to hang out to dry before making his own, a bit out of time, entrance to the main stage. Hopefully next year they'll master that runway. But tonight, we sit and enjoy some of Jonathon's creations and talk beer shop. He gives us insight behind Broad Ripple's owner, John Hill, who operates Indiana's oldest working brewery. The unique atmosphere, traditional European brews, and friendly staff makes you feel right at home at this little hidden gem in Indianapolis. Some shout outs to Sean Manahan of Flat12 Bierwerks and Redemption Alewerks.

The Pigs teamed up with historic Arni's Restaurant and Evil Czech Brewery for an evening of fine dining and brews.  Everyone knows Arni's has some of the best pizza around, but their menu has much more to offer than just great pie.  Megan Keevil Frank did the leg work for this event, and Arni's chef created some fantastic new menu items which Evil's Jeremy Nicely brilliantly paired with some frothy Evil brews.  Join us tonight for the first humorous hour of the Arni's New Menu & Evil Czech Pairing. And then we'll Meet You At Arni's so you can indulge in this terrific new menu, along with their always amazing pizza we all know and love. I swear, just by listening, you can almost taste the delicious food and brews. Cheers!

We always look forward to our talks with Jerry.  Bier Brewery's owner and house comedian, Jerry Connor, always brings good conversation. . . and delicious beer.  Sitting with the Pigs back home at Alley's Alehouse, Jerry does some well deserved gloating from Bier's recent Gold Medal award won at the World Beer Cup which is becoming a standard from this Indy brewery.   It's not always just fun and games on BPC, and this week we get into some serious discussions. . . about belly naval beer and Dougy's tasty stache.  Although Cowboy was unable to attend this week's round table, Jerry took his abuse out on poor Pat who had to be taught the hidden meaning behind Bier Brewery's Track Bier.  As usual, we express our love for American craft brews (our despise of Bud) while sipping on some Bier Brewery brews with a number of shout outs on this week's show including our partners over at Great Fermentations, Indianapolis Girl Pint Out, and our good friends down south at BriarScratch Brewing.  Cheers!

We pick up midstream in this episode of Friday Night Blind Pig Confessions back where we left off at Alley's Alehouse with our special guest from Evil Czech Brewery, Jeremy Nicely.  We were having so much fun after the first hour, we decided to keep the tape rolling for some extra debauchery.  Megan Keevil Frank unfortunately had to cut out early, and it seems the boys manners went with her.   This segment is all adult comedy as we partake of some more delicious Evil brew and talk a little about oyster brew, silky panties beer, and lip sweat saison.  We start this segment far off the rails and never quite get back on, but it was a fun ride for all.   Cheers!  Happy Friday!

We have been asked for months by fans when the hell were we going to start brewing.  Well, the time is finally here.   Thanks to our new sponsors at Great Fermentations of Indiana, the Pigs are now, not just talking smack about other people's beer, but walking the walk and producing our own Blind Pig Confessions brews.  And we could not have done it without the expertise help from Great Fermentations, the largest supplier of craft beer and wine supplies in the state. They have everything one needs, whether they are the beginner looking to brew as a hobby in the garage, or the experienced novice brewing on a large scale.  Not only do they have everything needed to brew, but they also provide many classes on the finer points of brewing and wine making.    Join us the evening for a fun, yet quite informative journey with the owner of Great Fermentations, Anita Johnson. We had a great time talking shop while enjoying some beers made at Fermentations.  If you're not brewing your own beer now, you will be after this episode.  Check out Great Fermentations and tell 'em the Pigs sent you.  (A few shout outs in this episode to their neighbors, The Bier Brewery, Journeyman Distillery, and Evil Czech Brewery and Public House.)

A dark cloud hung low over Alley's Alehouse as two forces came to clash on the Pigs homestead.  As Indiana's historic Arni's and the new blood of Evil Czech Brewery met for the first time, the air loomed with dreaded anticipation for what might come.   But alas, the evening talks began and the clouds quickly dissipated as this turned into a meeting of new friends, good brews, and lots of laughter.   Megan Keevil Frank tells us the roots of Arni's Restaurant and their famous pizza and Jeremy Nicely explains the birth and quick and successful growth of Evil Czech Brewery and Public House.  We review and rejoice about Evil's highly sought after, Clayton Bigsby, the deceptively delicious white stout, and we learn about the upcoming event, not to be missed, the New Menu Preview and Beer Pairing hosted by Arni's. Jeremy will be bringing some of Evil's finest brews to pair with Arni's fantastically tasty new menu items and the Pigs will be onsite to partake of the feast and record live from the event. Due to all the fun we were having, this turned into a two part series.  So relax and tune into Part One of Evil Arni's, be sure to get to Alley's to try the Evil on tap, and then meet us at Arni's on June 7th for great night of fun, food, and craft brews.

We kick ourselves repeatedly for not finding this little gem of a place nestled in downtown Fishers earlier, but we are certainly glad we did. Brixx Fire Wood Pizza is not only delivering up some elegant pizzas from their wood burning ovens, but they have some great craft brews on tap to quench any thirst. Dougy Fresh walked into Brixx one evening after one of his monthly pedicure & eyebrow waxings to check out the scene and see what this little pizza joint had on tap. He was delighted to find himself in stout and porter heaven. With the hop craze going on in and around the city, it was great to find a place which still catered to us dark beer lovers. He met bar manager Jeremy Lemon, thanked him for the array of fine porters and stouts along with the many other great craft beers on their 23 rotating taps, and made a good friend that evening. He quickly assembled the Pigs and said they need to get into Brixx as soon as possible. So here we are tonight sitting down with managers, Robert Yeley and Jeremy Lemon, discussing and partaking of a few of the many fine beers and talking about all Brixx has to offer. As well as a fantastic rotation of every different style of craft beer, Brixx has excellent food for meat lovers and vegetarians alike, and it’s served in a cozy atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating that is dog friendly and near the Fishers Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. Want something not on the menu? Just ask chef Mike and I’m sure he will do whatever he can to accommodate. A top notch friendly staff that will make any visit pleasing is found every day of the week at Brixx. The perfect summer spot to stop for a bite and a beer before or after a concert in the park. Tune into tonight’s show and then hit the Brixx.

What'll you have?PBR me, ASAP!  Tonight we pay homage to one of the country's oldest and still finest beers, Pabst Blue Ribbon.  PBR survived and thrived after Prohibition and have recently been creating havoc in the beer sales world.  We had the pleasure of being joined by PBR's very own Matt Martz as well as the owner of Alley's Alehouse and bowling aficionado, Kevin Walter.  Pabst has had a unique, yet hugely successful business approach.  Teaming that with their sincere comradery with the growing craft beer society has given them not just success, but the respect of beer enthusiasts around the globe.  Kevin, being the brilliant business man that he is, has beautifully paired PBR along with the great craft draft beer selection at Alley's along with a delicious menu that keeps beer and food lovers coming back for more and staying longer each time.  Tune in.  We're sure you'll be surprised at all these two fine companies have to offer and what's in store to come.  Cheers, and enjoy the show.

During our recent Nashville trip, we luckily took the time to stop in Cottontown, TN to see what was cooking at the BriarScratch Brewery, and we were damn glad we did. We sat down with owner and master brewer, Brad Singleton, who introduced us to some fantastic beer and a ton of beer knowledge. This is a guy who is going above and beyond to bring some great tasting brews to the public. Brad is brewing with science and a keen focus on the local community and our environment. We liked the beer so much, we ended up putting off the last track to Nashville for a day and stayed near the BriarScratch tap room at Prince Street Pizza and Pub in the historic downtown of Gallatin, TN. A big thanks to Brad and the great statt at Prince Street for hanging out with us and showing a great time. And we apologize if Pat offended anyone. (Kidding Pat, you were lovely.)

This week on Friday Night Blind Pig Confessions we took a field trip to Danny Boy Beer Works in the Village of West Clay. Our Marketing Director, Mandy Curry, sat in to guest host with the boys for a delightful evening. It was each of ours first trip to Danny’s so we were not sure what to expect. The first thing to hit you is the cool ambiance. Unlike many breweries which typically have a separate space for brewing hidden from the public view, Danny Boy invites its guests into the belly of the brewery. Only a chain link fence separates the crowd from the brewers, so as you enjoying your brew, you can watch and take in the intoxicating aroma while brewers work. Joining us on the show were Jen Dickman(Media Manager & Event Coordinator), Dustin Brown(Head Brewer), Derrek Herring(Assistant Brewer), and Jason Burkman(Manager). It will only take a few minutes of this episode to figure out how pleased we all were with the beer starting with their delicious Take Me to “Church” Irish Milk Stout. Tune in to find out the history of Danny Boy and the team, as well as what’s in store, as we make our way through a fantastic flight of brews with highlights on each from Head Brewer, Dustin Brown.

Nick gives us the low down on open mic night every Wednesday as well as Keith Disbro’s DJ Bingo on Tuesdays (and Trivia on Thursdays) to name just a few of the many activities to enjoy each night at Claude and Annie’s. Due to the Back to the Future predictions that were not, we pay tribute to the many sci-fi predictions that have come to fruition as well as a review of Goose Island’s Autumn Ale. There were also some shout out to local musicians, Dead Squirrels, Dave Vogt, among others in this well rounded and fun episode with friends and drinks. And a big thanks to Heather Jones to putting up with us all evening.

A pleasure this week to sit with Nick Yoder of Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Michigan during their 4th Anniversary Party. Cowboy and Dougy Fresh could not have been more giddy on this trip. Spent the day before preparing by hitting some fine breweries in Michigan (one of Dougie's favorite, Right Brain Brewery, Jolly Pumpkin, Clam Lake Brewery, Greenbush Brewery). But we could not have had a better time on Saturday at Journeyman for the celebration. Still hard to believe they have only been around for four years and have such amazing spirits. A Journey here will not soon be forgotten. A beautiful old buggy whip factory, originally built by a staunch prohibitionist, EK Warren, set on a historic location with something to offer for every whiskey lover. We were able to enjoy some great live music from Brett Wiscons before sitting down with Nick to talk shop and share a glass of Last Feather Rye. Some special shout outs to our buddy Warren Kluck of Jason Lee and Kluck in the Morning Show, who was enjoying some great food and mixed drinks downstairs with the rest of our clan (Ryan Douglas, Jerry Huener, Jacilynn Ferris), as well as 18th Street Brewery and Central State Brewing in Indianapolis. Enjoy this week's show and then get yourself a bottle or three of their tasty spirits, and do yourself a favor and get to Three Oaks to see this amazing place.

Cowboy, Jordan, and Dougie Fresh enjoy an evening of whiskey and brews with the boys from Dos Ringos, Trent Harris and Scot Heminger(aka. Busey).This episode we explored the roots of Outlaw Country and where it's at today as well as Trent's odd obsession with Taylor Swift.  Our good buddy Jamie Jackson posted about Ryan Adams new album covering Swift which prompted Dougie (being a Ryan Adams fan) to give it a listen . . . and now wishes he just would have downed a bottle of ammonia instead.

We talk good and bad beer, the new Joker, burnt nuts, and the new Crooked Ewe Brewery in South Bend, IN.
