Tonight on Friday Night Blind Pig Confessions we are back to one of our favorites spots, Redemption Alewerks.
We are joined by Redemption owner, Brandon Smith, and head brewer and reigning King of Indiana’s Next Hop Model, Dan Gohr.
Also joining us is my ol’ shipmate, Brad Ringstmeier of Perpetual Moto Discovery who has his own BPC episode which will be released soon.
We came to love Redemption for their great, malty goodness, brews, but we soon found out that they have an amazing menu to accompany the beer. We were treated tonight to their luscious pork balls, famous triple threat wings, and Not Yo Normal Nachos… and of course… BEER.
Tonight we relive our time at Indiana’s Next Hop Model, get the background scoop on Brandon Smith and their “accidental” beer, Queen of Tarts.
Tune in to hear what’s new at Redemption and all the great weekly events and specials such as Taco & Trivia Tuesday and their everyday, mouthwatering, smoked wings.
We find ourselves in the hot seat tonight as well as Dan reviews some of our own home brews (he loved them, I swear… no matter what he said in the episode). Tonight’s show was fueled by Redemption’s Deliverance IPA, Salvation Wheat Ale, Absolution Double IPA, and the Queen of Tarts Apple Ale.
Tonight’s “Confessional” guest is Isaiah Lovett.

The Pigs spend and entertaining evening once again at Tippy’s in Winamac, IN.
Dougy’s main squeeze, Mikki, jumps in again to review some brews and the Pig’s bodyguard, Griswold brings along his better half, Becky, to keep him in check.
The gang was in for a treat as Tippy’s was taken over by New Belgium Brewery. New Belgium Ranger, Lisa Kerman, delights their palates with some old favorites and some fresh suds new to the Pigs such as the delicious Black Lager. Lisa gets into some history of the brewery as well as some future goals before going off the rails with some buzzed up, entertaining conversations including some bad alcohol memories and cat pee brew.
A Tippy’s regular and local brewer jumps in at the end to help take this one out.
Shout outs include: Briarscratch; Bootleg Biology; Redemption Aleworks; Kopacetic Brewery; Devil’s Trumpet; and Carolina Bauernhaus Ales
