BPC – Episode 91 – Sex Panther

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 hanging out at Pies and Pints 2019 earlier this year and Jordan & Griswold stopping by for some happy hour libations the week before, we were finally able to get the Pigs together for a visit to Mashcraft Fishers....and it was well worth the visit.    We walked up to the counter, looked at the board and said...."We need one of each".  That's where the fun began.  We greedily took flights of every beer they had on the menu.  Everyone was especially astonished by the IIPA LUPU Imperial IPA boasting a 10.1% ABV but you would never guess it was a 10% brew and we had to double check we had the right beer.    We ran through the gamut of beers on tap and eventually David the general manager joined us after getting back from another event they had been supporting in the community.   Tune in to hear all about the many tasty, clean brews and then stop on in to wet your whistle and dine on some of the great food also available at Mashcraft.   Shout outs: Blakes Cider, The Bier Brewery, Pies and Pints, Briarscratch, Kopacetic Beer Factory, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Untappd, New Holland Brewing Company, Anchorage Brewing Company, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery, Jonathon Mullens, Final Gravity, Great Fermentations, Taxman   After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate at https://about.tavour.com.    Cheers!   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.
