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. ALL funds raised are donated directly to the 4p- Support Group.
Tune into Part Two of Hops & Hertz coming out soon with Spark Joy’s, Mr. Benjamin Cannon, musical guests, and more. Cheers! http://www.fountainsquarebrewery.com/ http://www.sparkjoymusic.com/ http://www.musicalfamilytree.com/

The Pigs spend and entertaining evening once again at Tippy’s in Winamac, IN.
Dougy’s main squeeze, Mikki, jumps in again to review some brews and the Pig’s bodyguard, Griswold brings along his better half, Becky, to keep him in check.
The gang was in for a treat as Tippy’s was taken over by New Belgium Brewery. New Belgium Ranger, Lisa Kerman, delights their palates with some old favorites and some fresh suds new to the Pigs such as the delicious Black Lager. Lisa gets into some history of the brewery as well as some future goals before going off the rails with some buzzed up, entertaining conversations including some bad alcohol memories and cat pee brew.
A Tippy’s regular and local brewer jumps in at the end to help take this one out.
Shout outs include: Briarscratch; Bootleg Biology; Redemption Aleworks; Kopacetic Brewery; Devil’s Trumpet; and Carolina Bauernhaus Ales
