BPC - Episode 166 - Pigs dine at LaSalle

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. 

Casey Dvorak, Manager and craft beer expert of the LaSalle Kitchen and Tavern, invited the boys in for drinks and to learn more about the history behind this special place.  Everyone in the city knows The LaSalle Grill is the place in town to go when you want to experience some of the best food and wine in the Midwest.  Some still don’t know about the surprise you’ll find on the third floor waiting to temp your senses.  The LaSalle Tavern has all you need for a great night out on the town from the cozy ambiance to the killer food, a wicked top shelf Whiskey and Scotch selection, live music, and of course, carefully selected craft beer. 

Tune in to hear some of the unique history surrounding LaSalle as the gang enjoys some of the finest craft beer and whiskey finds from Mr. Casey Dvorak.

Hunter, Dougy Fresh, Paulie G, and co-host Jeremy Brown, get looped on some dark brews including some fruits delivered from new show sponsor, Tavour.  Paulie G stumbled(pun intended) upon Tavour while killing time surfing the web before a recent show, nudged Dougy Fresh about this interesting craft beer delivery app, and the two filled a few virtual crates of brews from around the country and waited for the magic to happen.   Unlike most of those other craft beer clubs out there, Tavour gives you the power to decide what you want them to send without any depressing monthly dues.  You’ll enjoy the daily notifications and descriptive write-ups on the newly featured beers from the many craft breweries around the county you are not able to get in your area.  Once you crack open your crate and dive in you can return to the Tavour app to rate your chosen brews.  You don’t have to know how to pronounce it, you just have to know how use it.  Tune in to hear the usual hilarity and antics from the boys including strange places Cowboy puts his vegetables, a rant about Avatar, the upcoming Titanic Two, and some Part Twos the boys would like to see.  And learn more about the only craft beer delivery app you’ll want to download immediately and start filling your own crate.  Let us know which craft beers you’ve been turned on to from Tavour.     After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate at https://about.tavour.com.    Cheers!   Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  Back Step Brewing;  Lickinghole Creek Brewery;  Oakshire Brewing;  Dust Bowl Brewing;  Odell Brewing Co.;  Taxman;  Crown Liquors;  Mr. G’s Liquors;  Indiana On Tap;  Alley’s Alehouse;  Old Nation Brewing;  Brew Dog;  Clam Lake Brewery; and Redemption Alewerks   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.

Paulie G, Cowboy, Tex Mex, Dougy Fresh, and their co-hosting buddy Alan get down at 1205 Distillery with owners Brad and Nolan.   Since opening their doors in the Fountain Square neighborhood in 2014, an area of Indy booming in the craft and music scene, 1205 has quickly become a must stop for great cocktails and conversation.  You can’t have a great cocktail without a great spirit and 1205 does not disappoint.  Flavorful gin, smooth whiskey, incredible rhubarb liqueur, and a wild gem distilled from beer you have to try to believe.  The boys day went much too fast, but they will be back often and they’re sure you will be as well.   Tune in to hear some 1205 haunted history, the gruesome story behind their delicious Four Finger Rye, and the usual shenanigans you’d expect from the Pigs.   Cheers!   www.1205distillery.com   Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  Flat 12;  Pearl Street Pizzeria and Pub;  Repeal;  New Holland;  Peach Street Distillers;  Pink Shots;  Indiana Whiskey;  and Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery    Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.

Staring out a show a little looped may or may not have been the best way to go.  You decide.  But no matter what the outcome, it was a blast.  

We’re not certain as to the why, but Hunter’s wife was gracious enough to let the boys sit around, drink, swear, and eat her food for another hour as they enjoyed far too much great beer.  

They begin with some ESB from Back Step Brewery and continue to gush over this wonderful brewery once again before moving into a few Wisconsin brews brought back from some of Paulie’s recent travels which included more from 3 Sheeps and New Glarus.  

So, sit back and enjoy the ride with Cowboy, Dougy Fresh, Paulie G, and tonight’s host, Hunter as they indulge in some fine brew and talk a whole lot of nonsense.  

Cheers!

Sheila Jimenez always throws a fun bash and her Halloween Brew Fest at Tippy’s was no exception. In the depths of Tippy’s cellar, costumed freaks and craft beer lovers mingled in the dark and enjoyed some fines brews, wine, and meads.   Sheila and her sister Sarah Brewer sat with Dougy Fresh, Cowboy, and Paulie G before the scare fest began and talked brews and nonsense.   Listen as the gang gushes over Dr. Manahan’s special, spicy pumpkin ale and vent over cheap, fake Anheuser craft beers.   A big thanks to brother pig, Jordan, for donating the creepy Halloween decorations to help make the night a success.  Can’t wait for an even bigger and better year next Halloween.

With Halloween right around the corner, the boys decided to talk scary movies and a whole lotta nonsense with Pearl Street owner, Dave Andrus, Summer Harper, and evil Vinny.   Lots of delicious craft brew fueling this episode along with some tasty bourbon.   Tune in for another rousing show at Pearl Street and then be sure to make your way there for some of the best pizza the city has to offer along with the best craft beer to wash it down.  Ask to have your picture taken with Vinny and maybe you’ll get your photo on their fb page.     Shout out to Scarlet Lane (another must stop over the Halloween season…or any time you want a great craft brew)   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com

Kammy’s Kause Music Fest Part II

As always, an amazing time was had at the two day music festival dedicated to one very special little girl, Kammy.  From its humble beginnings 15 years ago to the unstoppable juggernaut now hosted at the Hoosier Racing Park and Casino, Kammy’s kause has raised over $400,000 for 4p- (also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome).   If you haven’t been, this should be a must add to your next summer’s calendar.  You get to enjoy two days of incredible live music from some of the best artists in the area, high-end silent auctions, and lots of great activities for the kids. 

Tune in for Part II from Kammy’s Kause as the boys, with a little co-hosting help from the beautiful Sara Bishop, rap with Audiodacity after their kick-off, killer live performance.  Jared Hiner, the father and founder of this special annual event, explains more about 4p- and the enormous amount of love that is in the air each year during Kammy’s Kause.   And Kelly Zullo stops by after her live set and does a little impromptu picking to end another fun episode of Confessions.

We hope to see you all at Kammy’s Kause next summer but remember you can donate year round.  For more information and how you can be a part of search for a cure, go to Kammyskause.org

Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  The luscious and legendary Jamie Jackson of Sam Ash Music;  Ben Jarvis;  Twin Cats;  Josh Kaufman;  Jenn Cristy;  Chad Mills, and Chicago Loft Bed
