BPC - Episode 160 - Heaters and Dan's Cans

Today the boys return to the original Studio A of Blind Pig Confessions to record an old-fashioned garage  show exactly where this show began.  Pauly G, Jordan, and Griswold are joined by special guest the Charismatic, Bewitching, Mesmerizing, Beer Guru the one and only Sir Dan Gohr.  We explore some unique brews from Georgia, Wisconsin, and even here at home in Indiana.  We discuss the difference in  Bottle and Can Art.  We find out about Dan giving Pauly a  “sweater  tongue”. We dabble a bit into the  realms of new beer styles, Dan’s Jealousy issues, and Mannequin Fascination and we find out all about the Dark, Strong Germans that Pauly G is into.  Join us for a fun adventure that derails over and over again, but is a fun-as-hell ride.

Another segment from the home of Hunter.  Dougy Fresh, Cowboy, Hunter, and Paulie G (formally known as Pauly G) kick back once again to sample some brews and do what friends do best. . . make fun of each other.  They started things off with a Saison from a young brewery in northern Indiana, the Koonzt Lake Brewing Co. then shuffled through some Wisconsin brews including beers from MobCraft Beer, and 3 Sheeps Brewing Company. Hunter’s wife gives the boys a history lesson on Iowa, Paulie and Fresh fight over which town is better, Sheboygan or Cheboygan, and there is some creepy van talk as the Pigs gear up for Vannin’ 2019. 

Special thanks to Cyrus Youngman and the Kingfishers for the use of their tune Life Won’t Wait to end tonight’s episode.  A must-see live show whenever you get the chance.

Dougy Fresh, Pauly G., and Cowboy spent a fun filled afternoon at Burn ‘Em Brewing in Michigan City with a couple beautiful ladies, Nicole Kehoe and Sabine Hankiewicz of The Pink Shots Podcast, who turned out to be as delightfully inappropriate as The Pigs. 

One of the Burn ‘Em Founding Fathers, Blake Murray, hosted the gathering and provided some of the many delectable brews Burn ‘Em has to offer and delivered some of the low down on the humble beginnings of the brewery and what’s to come next from this quickly growing local hot spot.  Also joining in on the mic for the afternoon was Mr. Jerry Huener as well as some background commentary from Sabine’s husband and Pink Shots bodyguard, Mr. Emmitt Muckles, who only knows how to live the billionaire lifestyle. 

Tune in for the antics and get your butt to Burn ‘em for some great craft beer and entertainment such as their Tuesday night Vinyl Night hosted by the one and only Robert Rolfe Feddersen.

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!

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! 

Shout outs on this week’s episode include:  Robert Rolfe Feddersen (and Honey Bee); Tailboarder Brewing; Round Town Brewing; Flix Brewhouse; Chris Burch; Noblesville Brew Fest; Ron Smith; and Brokerage Brewing Company

Taint Dragon

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. 

Tune in and be sure to join the trivia challenge next month at the Broad Ripple Brew Pub.

Shout outs in this week’s show include:  Lafayette Brewing Company; Mike Hofferman; Sean Manahan; Union Brewing; Red Lion; Brewed IN the Fort; Noblesville Brewfest, Beer Across Wabash; and Mr. R Feddersen

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.
