BPC - Episode 98 - Fun at The Bier Brewery

Pat, Dougy Fresh, and Cowboy enjoy an evening with the always comical, Jerry Connor, at his home, The Bier Brewery.  They dig into some of the tasty new brews on tap including this year's release of Red 66 and get a sneak peak at the upcoming release of their Track Bier in 16oz cans. The cool can art done by the amazing Sarah Buschmann, who also does the killer artwork that can be seen on the black boards at The Bier Brewery, as well as Alley's Alehouse.  A lot of fun packed into this power hour as they boys and Jerry get into what's coming up at the Brewery, ridiculous beer laws, odd beer news, flying pet peeves, and an intervention for Pat to mow his own damn lawn.

After hanging out at Pies and Pints 2019 earlier this year and Jordan & Griswold stopping by for some happy hour libations the week before, we were finally able to get the Pigs together for a visit to Mashcraft Fishers....and it was well worth the visit.    We walked up to the counter, looked at the board and said...."We need one of each".  That's where the fun began.  We greedily took flights of every beer they had on the menu.  Everyone was especially astonished by the IIPA LUPU Imperial IPA boasting a 10.1% ABV but you would never guess it was a 10% brew and we had to double check we had the right beer.    We ran through the gamut of beers on tap and eventually David the general manager joined us after getting back from another event they had been supporting in the community.   Tune in to hear all about the many tasty, clean brews and then stop on in to wet your whistle and dine on some of the great food also available at Mashcraft.   Shout outs: Blakes Cider, The Bier Brewery, Pies and Pints, Briarscratch, Kopacetic Beer Factory, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Untappd, New Holland Brewing Company, Anchorage Brewing Company, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery, Jonathon Mullens, Final Gravity, Great Fermentations, Taxman   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.
