BPC - Episode 213 - The Pigs Are Back in Town!

It’s been an obscene 2020 so far and they’ve been in hiding like most of the world, but the Pigs are back together to support craft beer and spirits once again.  Keeping it low key for the 1st show, the boys gather at the new Blind Pig Patio for some special brews and a special toast to some friends in the business.  But never fear(or maybe you should…), the Pigs will be hitting the towns, breweries, and distilleries to bring you the laughs and highlights while making more new craft friends around Indiana and our surrounding states.  Keep an eye out for upcoming shows at Putt’s Pub in Rochester, Jack’s in Winamac, and West Fork Whiskey just to name a few. So crack a cold one, stay safe out there, and tune in to the 1st show back in business.
