Pauly G and Dougy Fresh were joined by dear friend, Jessica Shaffer of Digital Wolf, to help co-host the show in downtown Rochester, Indiana at a local favorite, Putt’s Bar and Grill with new owner, Monica Ann. Putt’s may have the moniker of a biker bar, but it’s really a place for all to come and meet new and old friends, play a game of pool, enjoy the best burger in town, and wash it down with a cold brew or cocktail.  We even had the pleasure of meeting a pirate during our visit.   Monica has done made some renovations during the recent shutdown to give Putt’s a fresh new look.  All are welcome and we promise a good time while you’re there.     Shout outs in this episode include:  Schnabeltier;  Rick Garrett;  robert rolfe fedderson;  Total Head Case;  Three Floyds Brewing;  WROI 92.1 GIANT fm;     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.

The boys missed their Uncle Jerry, so we traveled down to the 65th street location. Uncle Jerry and Ace join us for our triumphant return to the Bier Brewery. We have some great beer conversation and talk about surviving Covid when you are a brewery.  Ace (The new Bier Brewery Spokesman) hops on for a while with us as well. Miller’s first trip to Bier Brewery and he may have actually orgasmed when he got a sip of his favorite beer fresh on tap. Uncle Jerry also puts the newbie in his place. Join us for a fun filled show. Cheers!

This is a heartfelt, emotional tribute to one of the Great Blind Pigs. We really dive deep into our feelings on this one to send off one of our own to a new life. Yeah who are we kidding that’s not our style. Please join us on this episode to send off Hunter in true Blind Pig fashion. We drink some beers from Big Beach Brewery in Alabama where Hunter is off and running to, along with some Florida and local brews. It doesn’t take long for us to sidetrack off onto some great stories and memories. There might even be a quick moment between Miller and Hunter where they become besties. Cheers.

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.

The Pigs attend the 5th annual Pie’s n Pint’s charity beer n pizza fest.

It is always a great time and our own kick off to spring. It is for the Arts for learning charity, so it is all for a great cause to keep the fine arts in our schools. This episode runs a little long but, hey, you have plenty of time right now to sit back relax and listen. We take a tour of the amazing breweries and pizza places that are at the event, along with some fun bantering between the pigs. Paulie G asks for some Hot Honey, Grandma Style after his Tickle Belly while Jordan does his Star Wars Nerd thing. Silent Griswold breaks his mold and speaks his mind, while Dougy Fresh gives us some great humor and gets some good jabs in on the boys.
