BPC - Episode 157 - Too Hot to Hook

Too Hot to Hook

The Pigs get back to basics with a good ol’ fashioned Home Show for an ode to Wisconsin craft beer.  Hunter, who’s been out on a corner for a few months since sponsorship is a bit low this summer, opens his doors to let the Pigs drink and dine at his pad.  

Pauly G., Dougy Fresh, and Cowboy join Hunter for a rousing afternoon of laughs and some mighty fine Wisconsin brews which featured, New Glarus, MKE, Third Space, 3 Sheeps, Fermentorium, and the heavenly smoky Bacon Bomb from the Brenner Brewing Co.  

The boys were delighted as the afternoon gave way to some really fine brews from the cheese state which brought back the talks to bringing the show on the road to Wisconsin.  

Tune in for the entertainment and then go seek out the brews.

Cheers!

Recent Episodes

The boys spent a rousing afternoon in Geist at the Pearl Street Pizzeria and Pub with a quiet Vinny and owner, Dave Andrus, enjoying some fine local craft beer and bourbon and getting to know more about roots of Pearl Street and probably too much about Cowboy.  Dave was just glad he showed up in pants.  (We can’t promise he left in them. . . )

Tune in to hear Dougy Fresh and Dave bond over their Michigan heritage and love of Pabst Blue Ribbon, some bottle or can debate, Dave’s soon to be famous cheer, and Cowboy’s haunting dead babies story. 

Whether you’re looking for a place for a great pizza, some of the best craft beer in the area, or to catch a game, no need to look further than Pearl Street.

The Pigs and gals of Pinkshots bring “family friendly” to a new low.   Be sure to put the kids to bed before tuning into this provocative edition of Confessions. Sabine and Nicole team up once again with Dougy Fresh, Cowboy, and Paulie G along with friends, Jerry Huener and Sabine’s better half, Mr. Emmit Muckles, for a afternoon of splendid brew fuel from Burn ‘Em Brewing and more inappropriate laughter.   Lots of birds and bees discussions, Nicole describes being sober drunk, Cowboy delights with some perverted grapefruit tips, and we end with the longest signoff in podcast history.  Too much fun to have to come to an end.  They did keep the party rolling at the home of the Heater afterwards thanks to Mr. Huener.   Cheers!   Be sure to look up the girls on their Pinkshots Podcast Facebook page or tune into their shows at pinkshots@libsyn.com.   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.

A festival of delights was had in South Bend, Indiana when the Pigs had the pleasure of spending a glorious evening filled with friends, conversation, live music, and some of the best craft beer and bourbons around.

Cowboy, Dougy Fresh, and Paulie Gee(e's are silent) are back one again to graciously cover this amazing two-day music festival and benefit. The event that started back in 2004 for one very special girl is now bringing families and friends from across America and beyond for a weekend of celebration and to bring awareness and more support for those affected by 4p-, also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome (WHS), an extremely rare chromosome disorder. As always, the Pigs bring their own brand of silly, laid back fun to cover Kammy's Kause, without forgetting the heartfelt reason why they are there. Helping to co-host the event is the beautiful Sara Bishop and the Pigs' personal bodyguard, Griswold Stout. Tune in to Part One as they are joined by numerous band members and friends who come out each year to play music and give their time throughout the year to support Kammy and the 4p- Support Group. A big thanks for those who jumped on a mic to talk about why this event is so special to them as well as what's going on with their respective bands, Mr. Zach Garner, Chris Sarber and David Charles Bailey of Pinky and The Basterds, and Ben Jarvis of Audiodacity. The boys had a great time, once again, being part of the Kammy's Kause family and talking to friends and supporters and they give a shout out and request to their fans in Lebanon. Be sure to stay tuned for the release of Part Two when they are joined by more band members and the very busy, father and Kammy's Kause founder, Mr. Jared Hiner.

The 2nd show with our good friends Nicole and Sabine of the Pinkshots Podcast got a bit crazy, as we expected, and we’re delighted. Fueled again by some amazing beer from Burn ‘Em Brewing, Cowboy, Paulie G, and Dougy Fresh kick back with the ladies and talk sex, a little beer . . .  but mostly sex.  Any chance of being “Family Friendly” went out the window at about the two-minute mark.  Joining the gang once again at Burn ‘Em was Jerry Huener, Burn ‘Em founder, Blake Murray (when he wasn’t running around trying to keep up with a big Saturday crowd), and Mr. Emmit Muckles.  They touch on fetishes(no pun intended), nude vacations, bad dates, and the possible need for an intervention for Nicole. 

Keep the kids far away from the speakers this week, but a must for those who need a good laugh.

Check out the Pinkshots Facebook page and tune into their shows for more female insight on life . . . and alcohol.  And be sure to get your butt over to Burn ‘Em Brewing to grab yourself a few fine pints of craft goodness.  Tell ‘em the Pigs sent you. 

Cheers!

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.

Have a few brews and then wander back through the hall to the adjoining Mammoth Distilling for some incredible Michigan craft spirits (don’t forget to try the Rye!).  And a big thanks to Stuart Hickman for setting us up and introducing us to Mammoth.  We will be back!
