BPC - Episode 180 - Hot Carl’s Taco Shack

Somewhere in the outskirts of Northern Indiana is a hidden treasure where men can be men and women can shake their head and roll their eyes at their stupidity.   Paulie G and Dougy Fresh took the wrong exit and ended up at Hot Carl’s Taco Shack and ran into some good friends, Troy Lawmaster, Keith Oden, and Mike Olivarez and decided to turn on the mics and record the evenings shenanigans.  Co-hosting for the evening and trying to be the only voice of reason among these idiots was the lovely Michelle Dickey.    As usual, the conversation takes some odd twist and turns with some stories of past drunkenness with old friends and as always, fueled by some great craft beer.   Big thanks to Paula Lawmaster, Kim Olivarez, and Kirsten Lawmaster for putting up with the night’s endeavors, and also to Cyrus Youngman and the Kingfishers for use of their groovy tune, Life Won’t Wait which to end the episode.     Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  Koontz Lake Brewery;  Anderson Valley Brewing;  Evil Czech;  Pfriem;  1205 Distillery;  Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery;  Brew Link Brewing; and Hoppin’ Frog Brewery    After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate at https://about.tavour.com.    Cheers!   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.
