BPC - Episode 146 - King Jerry

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!

Blind Pigs Pig Out at Alley’s Alehouse.

This show is brought to you by Captain Picard and an Inter-Dimensional Donkey’s Ass. You may have to listen to understand that one. In this episode it only takes Jordan 17 seconds to make a Sci-Fi nerd comment, and that catapults the group into an interesting conversation on all thing’s Sci-Fi. From Star Wars to Star Trek, DC to Marvel, and everywhere in between including the inter-dimensional donkeys’ ass. The boys do stop the Sci-Fi banter for a moment when the Burger parade brings the boys the new Blind Pig Burger created by Chef Larry. It is a burger that will change your life. Jordan, Hunter, Paulie G, Roberto, and Griswold all enjoy some great banter, food, and beers. What makes Griswold get giddy? Why does Pat have a surgeon on retainer? Who put a little wang in it? Take a listen and find out for yourself. Cheers.
