Unpretentious: The one word that can summarize the dining philosophy as it relates to their cuisine, service staff, and ambiance of Madison’s which located in the heart of downtown Pendleton, IN. Through the little hall just past the garden patio and indoor family dining rests a charming little, prohibition era like, adult only bar which boasts one of the best stocked bars in the Midwest with an eclectic wine list, an amazing array of whiskeys, and a wide variety of domestic, craft beers. The Pigs thought they died and went to heaven. The Pigs were invited for their World Tour of Whiskey event and had the pleasure of chatting with owner and chef, Dan Stackpoole, before their delightful whiskey journey. It was easy to figure out after hearing Dan talk about his passion for food and drinks just why Madison’s has such a fantastic selection of fine wines and whiskeys. Only the best of the best make their way to this overflowing bar of goodies. The warm, quant, brick atmosphere, along with the savory menu and mammoth drink selection, is enough to provide anyone with a congenial time while dining at Madison’s. But it’s the great staff and local regulars who treat everyone who walks in the door as part of the family that will keep you coming back time and time again. Tune in to this week’s episode to hear about Dan’s journey to Madison’s, it’s great food and drinks, and some of the great live, original music you may encounter while you are there. Also hear from Mayor elect, Dwayne, who joined the boys after the whiskey tour as they discussed some of their favorites of the evening. Shout outs included: Fall Perk’s Coffee House, Quack Daddy Donuts, The Bier Brewery, Redemption Alewerks, Taxman Brewing Company, The Guardian Brewing Company, Chapman’s Brewing Company, Chilly Water Brewing, Upland Brewing Company, Fountain Square Brewing Company, Rick Garrett(the tenderloin man), Evil Czech Brewery, Tin Man Brewing Company, and the 12.05 Distillery.

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
