BPC - Episode 217 - Pigs at Putt’s

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 Pigs saddle up, brave the pandemic, and head north to Milwaukee Wisconsin. This episode is the first stop on the tour and takes us to a craft distillery nestled on the corner of 6th and West Virginia in Milwaukee. We head down to the production room in the distillery where we meet up with Ross Salchow, a man of many talents and a wealth of knowledge about booze, prohibition, and Wisconsin history. This show is all about the amazing liquors that Great Lakes Distillery produces but also takes us back to our roots as we discuss prohibition and alcohol history. We even get educated on some fun Wisconsin history during our visit. Did you know that Wisconsin has an infamous Pirate? What about a famous Madame? This started as a stop to do an hour show and turned into an epic 3 hour adventure and a 2 part show.  Once you listen you will get hooked and the cliff hanger will have you waiting for Part 2.   Shout Outs: Mobcraft; Kopacetic; Leininkugels; Anderson’s Maple Syrup; CompassBox   After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate.  Cheers!   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune.   Members of the Hopped Up Network.

We were stoked to be able to brew a beer with our good friends at the Kopacetic Beer Factory in celebration of our 5th year anniversary.  It was released to the public last Friday at One Eyed Jack’s in Winamac and we had the pleasure of having owner, Michael Kasten, join us for some drinks and convo.  As always the conversation hits numerous subjects including beers and sports along with everything Jack’s has to offer including an over-the-top 500 Beer and Liquor Club.   Grab a cold one, tune in, and then stop in at Jack’s to try a brew from one of, if not the largest, craft beer selections in Indiana.   We are pleased to also be serving our collaboration brew, 5-Kubed, with Kopacetic at their home in Monticello, the Riverside Pub & Restaurant in Monticello, and of course One Eyed Jack’s in Winamac.     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.

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.

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.
