The Show

Each week Rob Sheehan, Pete Senefeld, and Adam Fultz review and discuss craft beer and spirits (mostly from Indiana). They also dabble in strange beer news and Adam’s shenanigans.

Happy Halloween from your bestest friends at thespeakpodcast!

Adults and children alike will be out this evening enjoying the fresh-air and taking candy from strangers. Why not have an adult beverage ready to hand out to those trick or treaters over the age of 21 the combines both booze and sweet chocolatey goodness? Maybe Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter is just the ticket!

Tune in to get out thoughts on the the beer and comment below what you think.

It's been too long since we've offended the public at large. In an effort to remind you all of the profundity and brilliance of our beer knowledge we have decided to discuss one hop across three styles. Make sure to take detailed notes as this episode will surely help you pass your Cicerone Certification Program.
The offerings in this episode all contain mosaic hops. 

We start with Small and Soft from Bare Hands Brewery. This New England Style Pale Ale offers great utility and artwork that left Adam nearly speechless. 

Next up was was an American IPA; Pompeii from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company. Clocking in at 6.3% ABV it's not even close to one of their strongest offerings, but this one stood out with strong pineapple flavors. 

To finish out the episode we sampled one of Destihl Brewery's Deadhead IPA Series, Touch of Haze. Juicier than the Pompeii it hid the 7.3% ABV quite well.

Let us know what you think about mosaic hops and let us know what other hops you think we should explore!

It's finally happened! We located an Indiana brewery that we haven't previously offended and was not aware of the inherent risks associated with the mere presence of Adam in the building. Cedar Creek Brewing Company opened the brewery doors and collaborated with us on our first ever commercial beer release, Revival!

This pre-prohibition lager is an all-day drinker with an earthy and hoppy finish that is so clear, you could read a book through it! Not that we at thespeakpodcast endorse reading. You know, because effort and stuff.

Special thank you to Sugar Creek Malt Company for providing the finest in local malt products and helping making our beer the refreshingly outstanding product that it is.

If you want to try it, hurry to Cedar Creek Brewing now. Or, for you folks further up North, Brewdog Indy should have some as well.

Oh, and a very special thanks to Kevin from Indy's second favorite podcast, OHHAP :)

That's right, a Halloween episode in May. It just so happens that we sampled Adam Has Two Moms from Sun King brewing back in October and that particular American Amber comes out seasonally in the summer. So this all makes sense... Just really going to need for you to go with it.

Two American Amber Ales, a Rye IPA, and a whiskey. Enjoy!

Hey Boos, check out our newest Shorty featuring INterspace.

INterspace is an Out of This World (puns are great) collaboration with Cedar Creek Brewing and Indy's (second) best podcast, Out Here Having a Pint. They kept it local featuring malt from Sugar Creek Malt Company and hops from 812 Farms.

As space was involved, we knew we needed to keep it brief; lest you all wanted to hear Adam's dissertation about Star Wars in a post-modern America. You may just want to take our word for it, nobody wants to here that.

Let us know what you think about our Shorty series. Feel free to give us a rating as well. Oh, and tell your friends!

Every now and again we're gifted some beverages from brewers or friends of the show. Usually these are limited type releases and not everyone can get their hands on 'em. While we don't always encourage scouring the secondary market for beer, we do have to say... the beers same on this episode were mighty fine. 

If you're fortunate enough to have some Scheming Demons from Deviate Brewing or a bomber of Feu De Camp from Black Flag Brewing Company sitting around, feel free to play the home game with us. Or, if you've had them before, let us know what you thought of them!

Either way, here's another 45 minutes of mindless entertainment



PS - Special thanks to our pal, Nate King for stopping by to share a beer with us. If you find yourself if need of a fine smoking pipe, check out his stuff!

If you think that title sounds off-putting, just wait until you listen to this episode!

We make a very deliberate and concerted effort in our first episode of 2021 to stay on task and on topic. Things start off well while we discuss 18th Street Brewing's Deal with the Devil. It was a boozy little number that we all enjoyed.

There is then an artful transition into Cigar City Brewing's Florida Man. A little juicy, a little resin, and a nice little beer.

Then things start to take a little turn. Some Double IPA discussion leads to water quality discussion. In an effort to make our discussion sound more intelligent than it actually was, Pete delves into a toilet symposium. Yes, we talk toilets. Not just that, but the most effective way to brew utilizing said toilet.

And because Pete seems to think tying reputable companies to his asinine ideas will have favorable outcomes, he's requested brewing companies send us equipment for a head-to-head "brewoff." Their equipment vs a toilet.... Because apparently when state of the art, modern brewing equipment can brew a better product than a porcelain waste disposal device that has to improve their sales, right?

Listen in! Share with friends! Leave us a rating!

Christmas, a time of joy and child-like anticipation of what Santa has left under the tree for all the good little boys and girls... Consider this episode the big-ass lump of coal in your stocking, kids. 

We celebrate Christmas exactly how you'd expect. Six beers, Adam singing, and a Nazi reference or two. Just pretend we're the drunk uncle at the table that you can't get to shut up. Listen and endure!

We've never claimed to be the most organized podcast on the internet; we mostly just claim to be the best podcast on the internet. 

Having said that, please enjoy a podcast that was recorded over a year ago after superfan, "DZ" brought us a bounty of beverages from Terre Haute Brewing Company out of Terre Haute, Indiana. We sampled and reviewed the CitraGenesis Wheat Beer, Madame Brown English Brown Ale, Powerline Imperial Double East Coast IPA, and the Sticky Green Double IPA.

We'll have to follow-up with THBC after they listen to this episode and see if they'll allow us in the brewery. These beers are good enough to justify a trip to Terre Haute. We know, we know, it smells - but trust us, it's worth it.

Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at thespeakpodcast!

As the weather turns cooler, porter season is upon us. We sample an offerings from Four Day Ray and Horny Goat Brewing. We should give an honorable mention to DuClaw as well as Sweet Baby Jesus did make an appearance on this episode.

Mute the commentary during the Macy's Day Parade and listen to us while you watch the balloons float by!

We "Indiana Jones'ed" in Rob's beer fridge (nearly losing Adam to a booby trap) and emerged with a unique variety of tasty beverages. The title of this episode is all of the additional information we are willing to provide. Thanks to the following breweries for giving us something to talk about!

Flat 12 Bierwerks, Upland Brewing Company, Black Flag Brewing Company, DuClaw Brewing Company

Publish Date: 11/8/2020

We feel the need to apologize to Bad Dad Brewing Company. They submitted samples to us for our review. In typical, thespeakpodcast fashion; Adam was Adam, Pete managed to misspeak in near record time, and Rob was there to try and coral this clown-show we call a podcast.

We reviewed 6 different Bad Dad Brews. The lineup there is Fairmount is tremendous. Listen in to see what we thought. Share with your friends. And then venture up to Bad Dad and tell us what you think!

We've never really participated in, "Sober October" before. However, we thought now might be a good time to try some Alcohol Free beers and report our findings. We sourced an "AF" expert and located another Fultz who is something of a fledging authority on alcohol free beer. Yes, you read correctly. We used both "Fultz" and "expert" in the same sentence... Adam has a brother.

Listen in and learn about a rather undiscovered (at least to us) world of fantastic alcohol free beers. We talk about some offerings from: Brew Dog, Athletic BrewingOmnipollo, and Two Roots.

It’s still warm enough to drink summer beers! At least the cool kids are still drinking summer beers on your favorite podcast. Listen in as we discuss Sun King’s Orange Vanilla Sunlight Cream Ale and Rhinegeist’s Zango Fruited Ale.

Adam also channels his inner Dexter by discussing cutlery and fish murder.

Let us know what some of your favorite summer beers were in the comments. Also, any ideas on what beer we should brew next?

Did you know there is apparently a tiger on the loose in Knoxville? Did you also know that 16 months ago we recorded a shorty about a beer from a brewery in East Hampton Connecticut called, Fat Orange Cat Brew Company? Lastly, did you know that we will find any excuse to try and make one of our episodes somehow topical?

Tune in to get out thoughts on FOC's Do All Sixteen Dances Belgian Style Saison! Like, comment and share to see if we can't get Adam to do the dance!

 While Indy did not get to experience the, "Best Four Days in Gaming" this year, Sun King did not let us down! We were able to get our hands on the 2020 Gencon offering, Genevieve!

Because twice a month wasn't enough for some of you, allow us to reintroduce the Shorty series.

Who will be crowed the official thespeakpodcast beer of the summer 2020?!?! Tune in and find out!

We celebrate the 4th of July by sampling 7 beers and ranking them in order of bestest, to least bestest. We felt we were clever by picking 7 beers 'cause July is the seventh month of the year... And that's kind of where the logic stopped.

Here is our lineup on this episode:

Fountain Square Brewing Company: Working Man’s Pilsner
Rhinegeist Brewery: Mosiac Pale Ale
Black Acre Brewing Company: Saucy Intruder IPA
People’s Brewing Company: Ol’ Tavern Lemon Radler
Lagunitas Brewing Company: Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale

What seems like an eternity ago now, we sat down with our friend, Ant from Mo Head Y'all. Ant has been a staple in the Midwest craft beer scene for a while now and it was great to finally meet him.

Shortly after we sat down with him we were all asked to stay a home and shelter in place due to COVID-19. It didn't seem like the right time to release an episode of us having a good time and enjoying being out and about drinking some pints.

Doors are now starting to open up and you can now get a beer at your favorite brewery, or at Mashcraft in Greenwood, where we were when we recorded this episode.

We discuss what got us in to craft beer, a side beer hustle, and how craft beer can help bring people together.

Be warned, there are lots of swears and the usual shenanigans you expect from your friends at thespeakpodcast.


Publish Date: 6/18/2020

We made it back to the studio!

Don't be worried, we're observing social distancing, wearing masks, not letting Adam touch us or anything we love.

We do have for you a brand new episode! We talk about pilsners. Not super sexy, but a tremendously refreshing beverage when done right. We have an offering from Devil's Trumpet and Toppling Goliath.

We're glad to be back in the swing of things. Make sure you follow along with us. We've got some big stuff happening! We're going to formally launch a new craft beer network and we have an episode to release here soon hanging with Ant from the Mo Head Y'all show!

Publish Date: 5/28/2020

As the shelter in place order is still in effect, we've gone back to the archives.

Please enjoy this, "Part II" episode featuring:

People’s Brewing Company – Phantom Assassin IPA

We'll let you know if we stumble across Part I.

Cheers and stay safe!

You know how Disney locks away movies in a vault and then re-releases them? Well, this is kinda like that, except we forgot to release the episode initially. So we’d like to introduce you again for the first to time this - our episode from the vault!

We kick things off with a beer you can no longer get from Books and Brews, Jabbersmokey! It is an imperial smoked stout aged in a scotch whiskey barrel. Just because you can’t get this one anymore, doesn’t mean that you can’t have Books and Brews beer delivered to your door!

We also chat about Sweet Baby Jesus! From DuClaw Brewing Company. Let’s be honest - if you haven’t tried this one yet, do you even craft beer, bro?

Also, shout-out to Barrel Chat. Member when they had a podcast? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

We consume three IPA's - so we titled the episode three IPA descriptors. Really can't tell you if they're appropriate or not; after the first few minutes of Adam talking about Star Wars my brain just went numb.

First out of the gates is Triton's The Hempire Strykes Back. It's an approachable Hemp IPA that lead to so much Star Wars discussion.

Our second Indy beer is from a brewery we haven't sampled on the show before, Mind Over Mash. We consume their Hop Lord... and then discuss Star Wars. Because, you know, Adam's mental acrobatics.

Lastly we review Heretic Brewing Company's You Can't Handle the Juice! At some point in time the taste of eyeballs was mentioned. Don't let that dissuade you however, it was actually pretty well reviewed.

Publish Date: 1/30/2020

As part of our pledge to get out more in the New Year - mostly to celebrate Adam's parole; we stopped in to Four Day Ray for a few pints. We discussed their award winning After Burner smoked lager and their seasonal Snow Shed Winter Ale.

Because we're an enlightened bunch, we then went on to discuss taxes and presidential home states.

Countdown to descending balls with your friends at thespeakpodcast!

As is tradition, we're switched from malted barley beverages to distilled spirits! Sadly, we only sampled from 3 of the 5 bottles we acquired for the episode, because responsibility.

Tune in to see how we felt about Hard Truth's White Rum and Gin and Tanner's Creek Bourbon Whiskey! We drink them neat and then mixed for added celebratory fun.

Happy New Year, Dear Readers!

Sherpas, goats, and leftover fridge beer. Adam screws up the rating scale again and we have pointless arguments. If you didn't bicker enough at the kid's table this year for Thanksgiving, listen in to us arguing like idiots!

We do (eventually) discuss some offerings from Scarlet Lane, DuClaw, and Centerpoint Brewing.

Also, as is tradition, Adam gets a Holiday swear.

Curious about that title? Adam said it. We talked about stouts. Does that add to the curiosity? Tune in to this week's fun filled episode that SHOULD have NOT had anything to do with Mountain Dew. We rap about Bare Hands Brewing Oat Stout and Modern Times Black House Coffee Roasty Stout.

Man oooh man did we have a great time with our friends from Out Here Having a Pint. We decided to get together for a few pints at Deviate Brewing.

Deviate has some of the most robust beers you'll ever experience. Each glass of their beer takes your taste buds on a unique flavor experience that you simply must try. OR, if you're Pete - You take all 14 taps of that experience and ask that it be poured in to one glass. Deviate from the Norm, right?

We also discuss how vaping makes you a badass with friend of the show, Doug.

Mike and Greg knew to steer clear of this episode, but thanks just the same for letting us crash your place for a few hours.

We decided to celebrate our 5 year recording anniversary at our most favorite speakeasy, O'Banion's. We sat down with the proprietor, John and talked beer. We also let IndyCar mechanic and pipe maker extraordinaire join in on the fun.

As the weather is heating up, we cooled down with Triton Brewery's Strawberry Golden Ale and Urban Chestnut's Escape Tropical Ale. Tune and and hear all about what we thought!

What's more patriotic than celebrating American with your favorite podcasters? Probably lots, but that question was rhetorical, dick!

Fire up the ol' internet radio and light up some sparklers. We're drinking some good old-fashioned, cheap American macro brews to determine which beer is the best "bang for your buck" to watch sky explosions with. We also test Adam and Pete's blind beer tasting identification skills and mix up a special beer concoction that you'll probably want to try at home.

Cheers America! And suck it Britain!

As is tradition now with our celebratory super-special episodes there will be some occasional swearing.

You ever wanted to hear Adam make car noises? Ever wondered about Adam's extensive IndyCar knowledge? How about Adam's car knowledge in general? Perhaps Adam's insight in to colors or flavors?

If not, you'll have to suffer through all of the above to hear our review of two new Jarrett Andretti releases from Flat 12 and a popular standby; Hinchtown Hammerdown.

If we're being honest, "Comprehensive" is a bit of a stretch. We can promise we have delivered on a solidly mediocre, but approachable "Joe Six Pack" kind of review.

We ran out and purchased the 10-4 Good Buddy collaboration 4 pack. Sun King teamed up with 3 Floyds, Rhinegeist, Austin Beer Works, and Cigar City Brewing. It's been about the best $18.99 we've spent on beer in a long time.

Why not grab your own 4-pack and drink along with us?

If you think you're the only one that doesn't understand that title, you're not.

While the weather is finally getting warmer, that doesn't mean that stouts aren't still in season. We've got Night Goat Coffee Stout from The Devil's Trumpet. We follow that one up with a Belgian Chocolate Toffee Vanilla Stout from Octopi Brewing. Then, for good measure we mix the two. The result was tremendous.

Spattered in there, Adam does his best Cardi B impression, we shout out Ant, and due to the ridiculous nature of this entire episode we have decided to offer a discount on our merch!

Looking for exciting new beer to sample this weekend? Make sure you hit up Black Acre on Saturday (5/4/19) and Four Day Ray Sunday (5/5/19) to snag one of the most unique and highly rated gose beers our group has ever sampled, Pina Fantasma.  If you're not really sure what a gose is, give this episode a listen. During our on-site recording at Four Day Ray Brewing this time around, we were joined by Hutch of The Pint Cycle and Brian Graham. We were able to have some truly insightful and down to Earth discussion about not only beer styles, but the state of craft beer. 

Be warned - Pete got too lazy to edit this one. Some adult language and humor has made it in to this weeks episode.

To celebrate Pat McAfee's debut of OCW (Office Championship Wrestling) and to continue our pursuit of a celebrity guest on our show, we decided to throw back some Naturdays from Natural Light. I know what you're all thinking, "Isn't that an out-of-state beer," and, "Won't Rob HATE that?!"

The answer to both of those questions was a resounding yes! However, we do it for our viewers.

Give our latest Shorty a listen and let us know if you think we should bring these back. Also Mark Hamill, next time you're looking for some idiots to drink Hamm's with, hit us up.

So uh, it's been about a month. We know that you've missed us and we promise to try and stick to our regular upload schedule. Things have been rough with Steve abandoning the show and HIS CREDIT HOURS!

That being said, thank you to our sponsor Books and Brews for seeing us through these trying times and allowing us some Nanceferatu to consume and review.

This then (naturally) leads us to a geography discussion because we then review Truth from Rhinegeist and Adam and Rob can't let a simple mistake die!

We hope you enjoy!

After our venture out in to pub-lic, we've returned to the studio. The typical shenanigans you've come to expect ensued.

This time around, we talked about a Black Kolsch called, "Sabbath" from Bier Brewery

Our mouths then experienced a taste of the North thanks to friend of the show, Jen P. She smuggled us back some Punxsutawney Philsner from Penn Brewery.

Naturally this led us to a discussion about rodents and lawn mower racing. Also, John Deere - we are in the market for sponsors.

What better way to celebrate this totally legitimate holiday than sampling beer at the new, Daredevil Hall at the Ironworks Hotel. If you've never been the Ironworks Hotel is a pretty swanky place off of 86th Street in the Keystone area.

Today they're offering a 3 course beer paired dinner for all of your Valentine's Day Needs. Being the investigative, hard-hitting podcasters that we are - We ventured out last night to preview the grub and brews.

We kick things off with Books and Brews' Shiaclops. We follow that up with Taxman Brewing's Mescal Barrel Exemption.

Because Adam single-handily brought us the fame now bestowed upon us we allow him more bleeps and pauses than we ever have before! If you like, Adam you're sure to love this episode!

A salute to our hophead listeners out there! We're going three deep again, but this time they're all IPA's!

We hit up Centerpoint Brewing to grab some of their Blood Orange Session IPA. The citrus notes really shine in this one and it is truly a sessionable beverage.

We venture out of town and sample an offering from Platform Beer Co. out of Ohio. Citra from The Project Series.

We wind things down with an interesting option from Taxman Brewing out of Bargersville. We gave their Bourbon Barrel Hop Collector a shot.

Shenanigans of note: Adam has abandoned joining the Marines and will "settle" for the Navy, we might have accidentally invented a racial slur, we learn the "P" in IPA does NOT stand for "placenta."

The parade is over! But why should that mean you are forced to interact with family and/or friends? Why not wander off and put in your earbuds and celebrate with your favorite podcast? Oh, because Joe Rogan didn't care enough about you to release a podcast today? That's cool, because we did.

We celebrate this Thanksgiving by talking about three collaboration beers. In the spirit of the holiday, different brewers got together and brought something to the table when they made their beers. This lineup features:

1. Polyjuice Potion - A Magical Elderberry Plum Sour Ale - Brewed by: Central State Brewing and Emporium Chicago
2. Across the Word - Dry Hopped Berliner Style Weisse - Sierra Nevada and Saint Arnold Brewing Company
3. De Kleine Dood - Belgian Inspired Weisenbock - Central Waters and The Local Option Chicago

Be warned - There are Harry Potter spoilers and atrocious puns!

Also, as a service to our friends in law enforcement we do offer some training that just may save your life one day.

Oh crap, we’re a week late posting this episode. To make it up to you though, we’re going three stouts deep in this episode. Also, we bring back sports questions for Adam.

To kick things off we sample Franken gloop from Books &Brews. It’s a triple chocolate stout, aged in a rye wheat whiskey barrel. It’s part of their Monster Reserve Series.

Keeping it local, we then move to Deer Creek Brewery's Black Mystic Java Stout. Editor’s note: This was last year’s Black Mystic. The year’s release is more “robust.”

And to wind things down a bit, we venture out of state to discuss, Prairie Artisan Ales: No Chill Coffee Milk Stout.

Oh, and if anyone knows and Army recruiter, Adam is “on tape” indicating he wants to enlist. Send us an email!

We've been taking our show on the road here lately. Our travels (back in early July) brought us to Scarlet Lane in McCordsville to share some fine fermented beverages with our friends from OHHAP.

Sure our information is a little bit dated - OHHAP switched from podcasting to YouTube videos and left the network, perhaps the No Coast Cuisine transition to Trax BBQ, and maybe the Scarlet Lane 80's Halloween party already happened. But that's no reason not to listen!

Be warned, there are "Lost" spoilers and Adam and Kevin talk about World of Warcraft.

And have no fear fans, we do have some episodes that will be out soon where we're back home in our comfy studio. A place where Adam's flatulence flows freely and Rob berates him mercilessly.

Indiana's first ever beer week is underway! We went out to Grand Junction Brewing to enjoy the festivities and were joined by the Indy Beer Sleuth, Rick Burkhardt himself to discuss what #IndyBeerWeek is all about. Also sitting in with us this recording was the "Master of Brewemonies" Mike Hofferman and James Dulhanty of weserveinsurance. We sampled some offerings from Grand Junction and had a great time all around talking about the importance of craft beer culture and giving back to the community. Please check out for a full calendar of events and, more importantly, go out and raise a glass for a good cause.

When the city of Whitestown comes calling with beer, you answer the call. Friend of the show, Sarah Burns asked if we wanted to come to Whitestown to see what some home brewers had to offer, so we made the trip.

When we arrived we were able to meet up with Justin of Books and Brews and our good friends, Kevin and Kelsey of Out Here Having a Pint. We caught up a little bit and discussed scented butt wipes before venturing off to sample some beers.

We hit up Nick Boling of Rocket Man brewing (spoiler alert: He won the competition) and learned about why he got in to brewing. Nick pointed us in the direction of, Jeremiah Tyson of Tyson Craft Brewing to get learned about mead.

After that, we visited with Sarah before Pete had to leave in order to avoid spontaneous combustion. His fair ginger skin would not allow him to be in the sun any further.

Our friends from OHHAP talked in us to joining them on their trip to Columbus, Ohio for Brewdog's Annual General Mayhem party/business meeting. This is an annual gathering of Brewdog's shareholders or, "Equity Punks." In short, we're glad we said, "yes."

Take a look at our social media posts from the weekend. It's safe to say that we had a great time. From the beer to the fantastic facilities to the great live music. Despite all of that, our favorite part is the people that we met and the relationships that were forged. Throughout our craft beer journey the people involved have always been the cornerstone of what makes the craft beer industry great.

We wanted to take this opportunity to give you that behind the scenes listen on what goes on when you sit down at a table full of strangers with some great beer and talk about your passion. We fortunate enough to be joined by, James Watt (50% of the Brew Dogs), Jared and Chris from Redtail media, Kevin and Kelsey from OHHAP, and Brewdog 's US CEO Tanisha Robinson.

Because we wanted to give you the full and authentic experience this episode has been almost entirely un-edited. This means that there are some swear words and Adam is permitted some vulgar references pertaining to his love of Titanic and James.

Amber ales and animal facts. It's nearly as informative as Discovery Channel's Shark Week. If Shark Week was produced by a couple of idiots and their fourteen year-old cousin who "ain't quite right."

The highlights include Fountain Square Brewing's Preacher's Daughter Amber Ale. It's an American Amber with hints of citrusy hops balanaced with buiscuit malts.

Next up is Urban Artifact's Thoroughbred Barrel Aged Imperial Amber Ale. This one sparks quite a nice conversation among the group...

Which is a great segue into us falling off a cliff in to the ocean where octopus live in glorious cities. Yes. Apparently that is a thing, or so says Adam. Tune in to learn more.

Don't let that super-sweet episode title fool you. There is actually, genuinely, truthfully good beer reviewing that took place in this episode. Sure, we then talked about getting pulled over and chugging a beer, Adam's death hugs, and expressing beaver butts. All of this because you need to get the hard-hitting news somewhere and we're just the team to bring it to you.

Expert journalism aside, our local beer is Bier Brewery's Backpackin' Brown Porter. This medium bodied porter "for all seasons" caused some insightful beer discussion amongst the group. And yes, even Adam.

Up next is Dogfish Head's Palo Santo Marron. This American Brown Ale really wow'ed the collective. Seek this one out, give it a shot and let us know your thoughts.

Then come the hugs and beaver butts.

Hi there loyal listeners! We're breaking our routine and not talking about blondes this go-around. 18th Street Brewery put out a refreshing beverage with hints of grapefruit, Rise of The Angels. So we start there and then veer directly off course and move on to a cider offering from Angry Orchard.

After that, things just get weird. There's a lot of discussion of crabs, cheese, and heists. Maybe not one of our more informative episodes, but certainly one to sit down and enjoy with a beer or twelve.

Yeah, we’re featuring blondes… again. But hey, when the weather is this nice, sometimes you just need a nice refreshing beverage that Pete can mow his lawn drinking.

First up we have Gold Standard from Taxman Brewing Company. This Abbey-Style Blonde Ale spurred a fair amount of discussion amongst the group.

We follow-up our local beer with a trip to Germany, Ohio. Yeah. Germany. What of it?!?! We talk about Rhinegeist’s Cougar Blonde Ale. This one is an American Blonde Ale that shares some similarities with the Abbey-Style Blonde from Taxman. 

If our beer review shenanigans weren’t awkward enough for you, we end by discussing the following: Weird drinking laws, weird drinks, and a plea to Pat McAfee to save our show.

As Spring is here (technically) our style of choice is the easy and approachable Blonde. We'll let Brian and Brooke of Four Day Ray give us the BJCP style explanation and walk us through their Blood Orange Blonde on tap now. They then give us a sneak preview of their blueberry blonde at the end of the episode which will be released the first week of May. Or, if you listen close, we do let you know a few locations where it is on tap.

Pete tried his darn-dest to locate some blondes to compare and contrast some beers of the same style. as you might expect, he failed. However the beers he did acquire generated some great conversation. The line-up for this episode included: Prairie Artisan Ales Prairie Gold, Evil Twin Classique Imperial, and Jolly Pumpkin Oro De Calabaza.

We sat down with some friends from Four Day Ray and The Pint Cycle at FDR Brewery in Fishers. We in the tap room on kegging day (if you're wondering what those noises are), and we gained some additional education and insight in to traditional Irish beer styles just in time for St. Patrick's day!

This is the first episode in our new Beer Education Series. Come learn with us! We cycle through a few beers in this episode. The first two are red ales: FDR's Kingstown Irish Red followed by Boulevard's Irish Red. The Four Day Ray beer is a little closer to the style with some added rye, and the Boulevard is a unique take on an Irish Red.

We then try Guinness's relatively new, Rye Pale Ale and wrap things up with a Mofo Risin' Stout. We learn about some of the history of Irish style beer, what SRM's are, the best beer to sneak in to the new #BlackPanther movie, and that Hutch calls those who ride The Pint Cycle "passengers."

Be sure to stop by Four Day Ray on March 16th and 17th and celebrate St. Patrick's Day for their, "Firkin St. Patrick's Day" event. Also, if'n you're in to whiskey - and more importantly, local whiskey, check out their "Whiskey Beer and Bites" event with West Fork Whiskey on March 15th.

We braved the weather and ventured out to Upland Brewing's taproom in Carmel. While there we warmed up with their seasonal release, Latitude Adjustment. This beer proves not all winter seasonals have to be spiced or malty.

Celebrate dropping balls with your favorite Indiana beer podcast... who has inexplicably started a tradition of reviewing spirits on New Year's Eve.

We begin with Hotel Tango's Victor Vodka. Hotel Tango is a veteran owned distillery located in Indianapolis.

We then artfully transition to a distillery a bit further South in Bloomington Indiana; Cardinal Spirits. We sample their Tiki Rum. It is a floral rum and it serves as the tipping point for the shenanigans on this New Year's Eve. Argument ensues as we move even further South to Borden Indiana home of the Huber Winery and Starlight Distillery and discuss our collective thoughts regarding their Gin.

We end back in Indianapolis with B Street Blues Bourbon Whiskey from a newer distillery in the are, West Fork Whiskey.

Enjoy an evening with us, then be sure to visit our other podcasting friends at the Hopped Up Network.

Christmas! And this our fourth one of those. As always, we bring to you Anchor's Christmas Ale. This winter warmer has rich and creamy flavors that range from honey-nut to fruitcake plum.

But lest we get ahead of ourselves, we kick things off with Evil Czech's, Stalin's Dark Side Imperial Stout. It's bourbon barrel aged with Woodford Reserve which we found to be thick, robust, dark and malty... like Adam's dates.

We finish off the show by discussing Hallmark drinking games, offer a public service announcement, and explain Christmas traditions from both the Orient and Catalonia.

While it's not normally recommended, this one is definitely an episode to listen to through the end. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a *creepy* GOODNIGHT!

We're back again with another "two-parter" from a brewery. This week we feature, Flat 12 Bierwerks from wonderful downtown Indianapolis. We were able to speak with brewer, Erik "EZ" Fox and sales manager extraordinaire, Phil Hilligoss.

Sadly, we were down a podcaster. Adam was forced to go to Hawaii for 3 days and while he was back in Indiana for the show, he had not yet fully recovered from his island journey. Let us all join together in a moment of silence for the hardships he had to endure...

Now that we've got that out of the way. The episode is jam-packed with exciting 2018 beer release discussion and a review of Flat 12's Felicette Belgium Dry-Hopped Pale and their Pinko! Russian Imperial Stout.

Discussion then takes a momentary turn from beer discussion and we focus on Nicholas Cage movies, the right way to "shotgun" a beer, and cannibalism in Japan.

Collaborations o'plenty this episode. We grabbed all of the bottles we could here locally to bring you a collab trifecta. We've got beers from all over the state... or mostly, from the North of the state.

To open our show we talk about, Double O Session IPA from Sun King Brewery out of Indianapolis and Revolution Brewing out of Chicago. Session IPA is a very apt description and each brewery was able to maintain their identity in this beer while the marriage of the two brought out a very distinct taste.

That beer is promptly and professionally followed by a joint effort from Deviate Brewing and Black Acre Brewing both out of Indiana. This Quadruple IPA is named, Hop Lunacy and for very good reason. This one is a "right of passage" type IPA and probably tastes like nothing you've had before.

This episode is finished off with a collaboration between 3 Floyds Brewing and Dark Matter Coffee out of Chicago. The Mastodon Crack The Skye is a very good beer, but this beer caused some argument among the group.

Dug deep in the archives and found an episode long ago recorded, but just now released. In this episode we learn all about, Brown Ales.

Things start off in a promising manner with a review of a beer from Carson's Brewery out of Evansville, Indiana. We consume their Brown Cow. Puns are made, and fun is had by all.

We then expertly transition in to discussion regarding a Pecan Nut Brown Ale, Lazy Magnolia out of Mississippi.

It was right about that time I learned why this episode had remained in the archives so long... But, we try to educate Adam on some etiquette when visiting a tap room and learn how Texas feels about Crowlers.

We find out what makes Grand Junction unique and how they are giving back to the Westfield community. Mike also let us in on some upcoming events and their canning of their (medal winning) Dark Road Porter for the first time.

That is about as professional as things get for us, and special guest Charlie (aka Uncle Chuck, aka TheBeerReverend). From there we go on to ask Adam sports questions, make a prison joke, and ask Mike questions about his childhood.

We heard from our secret industry sources that the Zionsville location has a revamped food menu and is now family friendly. Family friendly of course means that children are allowed so we brought Adam who promptly found the crayons and a place mat and proceeded to begin coloring.

Our last episode featuring porters was such a hit, we thought we’d try it again. Devil’s Trumpet Brewing Company’s War Horn Porter starts the shows. Well, a large amount of shenanigans start the show, but the first beer we “review” is War Horn.

Next, from Stone Brewing we have their 6thAnniversary porter from their 20th Anniversary re-issue collection. Which is confusing and hard to follow. But rest assured, we offer no additional clarity. 

Special shout-out to Delaware Dan for his submission to our re-occurring segment, “HOLD MY BEER!” Trust me when I say, Dan's story is too good to miss. So, be sure to stay tuned until the end.

Also, we'll have to check with our statistician, but I believe this show may be a new record for most ever censor "bleeps."

Celebrate the 4th of July with us as we talk about Porter's, celebrate the film career of Arnold Schwarzenegger (or at least one of his films), and inspire the US to take it's Zamboni fatality record back from Canada.

To kick things off we have Burn 'Em Brewing's Duke Silver Jazzy Porter. A beer that was well received by the group, but Adam manages to embarrass the show in record time while describing the can. The 7 malted beer makes for a refreshing, full-bodied beverage for a warm 4th of July. We then move out of state and sample an offering from Evil Twin Brewing and partake of their Imperial Donut Bank.

Happy Saturday everyone! On this day, of all days, we're featuring Stouts!

Pete has selected beers from 18th Street and Prairie Artisan Ales. Two stouts with similar ingredients, but both with their own, bold flavors. From 18th Street we feature their Hunter Milk Stout and from Prairie Artisan Ales, their BOMB!

Adam follows that up with a lively discussion about crabs. Crabs of the water, and crabs of the sea. If you're a swimmer this is information you can't afford to miss.

Also, this is the last time we'll be able to make fun of (some of) Adam's adult deficiencies. Since this episode Adam has moved out of his girlfriend's parent's house and has purchased a new(er) vehicle. We're all proud... and we are taking bets on both when he will be evicted and when we think (if ever) Adam will change the oil in his new(er) vehicle.

It's nearly summer! That means chores, and more specifically grass mowing related chores. In that spirit, we feature two Cream Ales. Often light, crisp, and refreshing.

We start things off with Sun King's Sunlight Cream Ale. An Indiana warm weather staple... And then I must digress. We let Adam buy the beer and he was given the assignment, "cream ale." While he technically followed directions, the second offering this show was/is Coney Island Brewing's Hard Orange Cream Ale.

And then copious amounts of stupid happened. Much more than even we are accustomed to. Enjoy.

Adam also offends every Star Wars fan ever, and officially should have his fandom revoked. Rob and Pete were disgusted, and there was much conversation regarding whether or not to post his shenanigans, but that's the only way he'll learn. Make sure you voice your displeasure in the comments.

Or, sink the podcast up with the Macy's Day Parade and see what that sounds like (spoiler alert: they don't sync up).

As is it Thanksgiving, we blew the budget and brought in special celebrity guest, Matt Muncy from Indiana on Tap. Instead of the traditional maize, he brought us booze from Cardinal Spirits Black Bear Bierschnaps and Walnut Nocino and Teddy Bear Kisses from Upland Brewing.

Be forewarned, this is probably more fun than your normal Thanksgiving table conversation, but there is an equal amount of cross-talk and argument as well. Due to radio magic, there is however less swearing! We also let Adam "free-hand" his microphone. Note to self(es), never ever again.

Hey! It's Friday! If you're looking to kill an hour before the weekend, come give us a listen.

On this episode we feature first, Danny Boy Beer Works Mac Daddy Scottish Strong Ale.

While it may be too early to have a beer, it's never too early to listen to some guys talk about beer! We have two fine beverages this time around, the first is from, Black Acre Brewing, their Natural Liberty American Pale Lager. We discuss this beer, and being working on our Disney sequel, Rescuers 3! Learn how an albatross and his mice companions single-handedly defeated the Ruski's in The Cold War.

Next up we feature a beer that is just a little bit out of season, but a great suggestion as to what you should keep in the fridge when the weather turns cold, Great Divide Brewing Company's Hibernation English Style Old Ale.

We then delve in to our normal, incriminating banter and call out real media organizations like,

Here's to the weekend! Let us help you celebrate with two beers followed by an embarrassing amount of "stream-of-consciousnesses" style rambling entirely unrelated to beer. Plus, Adam teaches us all about the animal kingdom. Ever wondered how long an iguana can hold its breath? Tune in to find out!

We start things off with Marion the Agrarian from Upland Brewing. It's a farmhouse ale with some character. We then move on to Greenbush Brewing out of Detroit, Michigan and sample their Starchicken Shotgun IPA.

And last, special shoutout to Jason Lee @nottherealearl. We read his tweet "live" on air!

Yeah, it happened again. Adam discussed polar bears, and drive-by's. Rob and Adam are serenaded with some old school, Esham (shout out to Jake Omen) and you also must tune in to hear if your sour cream contains the dreaded Zika virus, and the surprising cure.

In beer related podcasting, we discuss Two Deep Brewing's Brickhouse Roasted Amber Ale. Is it really as "Might-ay Might-ay" as advertised?

As you'd come to expect, we then transition smoothly in to a beer from Harpoon Brewery out of Boston. And when we say, "beer" when mean, "shandy." And when we say, "shandy" Rob dies a little bit on the inside. Is this the one to change his mind?

Greetings listeners! We may have hit a new low with this episode.

We start things off with Demonik from Carson's Brewing out of Evansville, Indiana. The group believes there was something wrong with the six pack we obtained from our booze shop. However, much like with our Flat 12 beer, we consumed and rated this beverage. Rest assured though, Carson's Brewing will get another sampling and review and they still do stand out as one of the group's favorite Indiana breweries. That being said, the review was not great.

We then partake of Shorts Bellaire Brown Ale. Adam's description of the bottle is about what you'd expect from him, as is the review in general.

Speaking of Adam, he then discusses dog years, polar bear licensing, and seeks to apply for a job at the Smithsonian.

If you want to learn how polar produce Coca-Cola, and how to get a polar bear license from the BMV, be sure to listen to this episode!

Also, vote for Justin Jay McIntosh for best local 2d artist here:

We bribed yet another guest to meet with us out in public. We have Hutch from The Pint Cycle who donated precious minutes of his life that he's desperately wishes he could get back.

We talk Indiana beer and wine, Adam's mom's, and Adam again discusses the ocean.

In the vein of repetition, we do once again mention Scarlet Lane. Pete admits their beer he has had recently seems to have greatly improved (to his mind) and he ups his prior rating to a double solid! There is also a mention of Three Floyds and Munster, Indiana.

Hutch also requested a special shout-out to The Pint Cycle's pit crew, LoKe Bicycles. The keep his cycle in tip-top shape for touring around Fishers and qualifying for the Olympics.

We're looking to recruit a crew to help us pedal The Pint Cycle down the streets of Fishers to be looked upon in envy by those passing by.

Looking to ruin what would otherwise be a pretty stellar Saturday? Look no further! Adam educates us about all things Viking, pirate, and Coast Guard. We also then discuss fire hoses, ultra-mega beer conglomerates, and Clint Eastwood films.

But, we start it all off with a discussion of Scarlet Lane's Eirik Bloodaxe. Important note, there apparently was an Eric Bloodaxe in real life (#themoreyouknow). *Spoiler Alert* Buy The Beer!

We discuss history, rye, and 1776 an American Brown Ale made by James E Pepper. Yes, that James E Pepper. The dudes who make the whiskey.

We begin by thanking our (now official) sponsor, Deviate Brewing. And an extra special thanks to Zane Lamprey of Three Sheets, Chug, Drinking Made Easy, and Monkey Rum for the endorsement at the beginning. Feels good to literally not be the worst show in Indy.

We stick to our normal Indiana beer and review, Bier Brewing Chinookalicious American Style IPA.

Things then start to go off the rails a bit as we delve in to:

Old Forge Tennessee Moonshine... 5 jars of it in fact.

We then talk about news articles, drinking happens, equipment gets messed up, drinking happens, then an America grand finale you don't want to miss.

This episode features a brew from Figure 8 Brewing in Valparaiso, IN. We bring you, Ro Shampo, and interesting Imperial Red Ale.

First and foremost, I hearty thank you to 18th St Brewery out of Gary, IN for their

We also have 3 philosophers from Ommegang brewing as our non-Indiana honorable mention.

We discuss beer news and geography, lots of geography. Also, Adam attempts to sing like an oompa loompa, and poor pun jokes are made.

"Episode 21"

This bi-week we bring you a brew from BBC. For the un-initiated, that is the Bloomington Brewing Company. Their offering of the Ruby Bloom Amber was pretty well received by the group, and pretty horribly described by Adam. Upon listening, you'll see why we didn't release this episode prior to our venturing down the Ale Trail in Bloomington... they would not have let us in to the bar. Thanks again, Brian.

Our honorable mention this week goes to North Peak Brewing's Mayhem. The size of the bottle is not indicative of the brew's taste.

And, we finally show that beer does more than make you look cool and fit in, it is actually good for you as well. We offer science to back that up. The Amerucan Gov'ment interferes with both our beer and our restaurants. And lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we bring you late-breaking, hard-hitting new from Stone Brewing. All we'll say is, "We trusted you, Stone!"

And we point out Adam's short-comings in his Social Media Management duties. He had weeks to prepare and advertise this particular episode and our news of Stone Brewing. He failed, failed so miserably.

Welcome back, and you're welcome for the all-new mind-blowing super-hyphenated new installment of thespeakpodcast.

Special thanks to Jonesie of RJ's Bar in Greenwood.

In this episode, Adam "Waffle Baby" Fultz has gained another nick-name that we think you'll all appreciate. Also a special thanks to his "special" lady for sharing this one with us. I'd like to think that we at thespeakpodcast are mature enough to not overuse the new nickname and allow Adam some dignity; but that is just not truthful.

This bi-week we bring you a beer from 450 North Brewing Company. It's their Honey Kolsch. This particular beer caused a great deal of discussion among the fellas. We do also mention a beer from Finch's Beer Company out of Chicago, IL and try to appeal to their philanthropic side... as well as any other brewery that may have a deluge of beer that they would like to disseminate to lowly podcasters for review. Surely our tens of readers should provide adequate motivation.

Of course, beer news happens. Tune in, learn stuff, impress your friends at parties.

Honorable mention to @thedumpbuckets as they continue to offer a video Midwest beer component that we at thespeakpodcast are lacking.

"Episode 19"

We bring you the beer, the super-secret special (seasonal) beer. It is another from People, Space Cowboy IPA, but as it is seasonal, we felt the need to review immediately. We do find a way to reference Star Wars and Futurama. You know,to satisfy our nerd following. Adam's three words to take away (that you won't find on the beer wheel) Smokey, laser, bubbles.

After, we discuss the Space and the cowboys, we seek to expand your mind with news of the beer. The fellas pay homage to a beer company they claim comes from the author's home state of Wisconsin. I swear to God I am not FROM Wisconsin; I just lived there for a few years.

And to end the show, Adam hits you with his famous, "Goodnight" several times. You're welcome, dear reader.

Publish Date: 7/25/2017

"Episode 18"

We again visit a beer from People and sample their brown aptly named, Mr. Brown. Adam also finds a way to work in a Johnny Depp movie reference in to the review. This may well be a beer to use your patented Adam Beer Review Wheel and play the home game.

We then make a seamless segway from beer, to Star Wars, to patriotism, to news. News from the world. News that matter to you, the reader.

And, to no one's surprise, we manage to also reference Batman and Star Wars... again.

"Farewell to Steve"

Alas, all terrible things must come to an end. In this episode we bid a not-so-fond farewell to the intern, Steve. He is studying abroad next semester, God knows where, and we are accepting applications for a new intern. So, if you like to work very hard for no money, but earn unaccredited college credit - have we the job for you.

As is becoming our new norm, we then go on to discuss beer in the news, and beer in the buff. If you're not yet intrigued... you must've seen our photos on facebook, or twitter, or whatever instagrams you need.

And for you ladies, we finally discuss a topic pertaining to you. Should you want to get both drunk and beautiful at the same time, we have the solution! The secret to beauty and blackouts lies just beyond the play button.

You asked for it, so you got it. The fellas are also discussing current beer related events in this epsiode. See which  (likely communist) US state seems opposed to babies drinking. But, have they gone too far?!? They have banned a  brand of beer! Listen to hear our call to action. Sign the petition by commenting now!

What’s this?!?! Another episode so soon? We bring you a special thespeakpodcast Early Edition. We are calling upon you, our dear readers, to cast your vote for the Indy Star’s Malt Madness tournament. The Oaken Barrel’s Snake Pit Porter needs, neigh, deserves your help.

We review Upland Brewery’s Malefactor (Gilgamesh). This is a particular classy beverage, and you will want to hear Adam’s description.

Upon completion of the beer discussion, we delve in to “sports” discussion. With all the twitter conversation involving Curt Schilling, we would be remised if we didn’t get Adam’s take on the whole situation. That conversation parlays nicely in to a discussion about the Houston Rockets (special shout-outs to: Clutch, our man Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Ernie Johnson, Jalen Rose, and Chris Weber) and eventually to “Malt Madness.”

Honorable mention this episode goes to: Shadowboxer, Sun King, Triton, Mashcraft, Barley Island, Indiana City, Tow Yard Brewing, Black Swan Brewpub, Rock Bottom, Bier Brewery, and the Ram.

Remember, perform your civic duty and vote!



"Piping With Nate"

In this episode, we review a beer... a good beer in fact. A beer from Union Brewing out of Carmel, Indiana - Not Your Mama's Milk Stout. A beer revered by dead turtles everywhere.

We then pipe, and pipe hard with friend of the show, Nate King. Congrats to him for his grand opening of, "The Pipe Lab." Or, "The Pipe Academy," depending upon whom you chose to listen.

Hilarity is sure to ensue. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. And then share, and like and instagram, follower, twitter, and whatever else you feel compelled to do to get us that sweet, sweet syndication.

Awright, so I gotta make this quick. If they find me jacking with their computer, I'm pretty boned.

So, here's an episode my "employers" never thought would see the light of day. It's chock-full-o stupid. Stupid in spades. Stupid by the bucket.

In short, it probably shouldn't see the light of day.

And so, here it is, a composition of garbage I pulled from the cutting room floor and stuck together.


P.S. I don't know why they call me that. It's not actually my name.

We've got what you want... beer. This week we parcel out a review for Mad Anthony's Auburn Lager out of Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Adam cracks the safe and exposes the secrets of this lager.

We also discuss the importance of remaining awake interacting with rhinos and the cleanliness of gentlemen's clubs in Chicago... but probably not how you think.

Feel free to write in and join our discussion and tell us your favorite Die Hard and Rocky films.

And we end by asking Adam what a yac is.

We begin this episode with a reading from the book of Billy-Bob Adam. Followed by an, always informative beer review. This episode's brew comes to us from Chapman's Brewing Company in Angola, IN. 'Tis their, Englishman.

We do also give a special shout-out to Veteran Beer Company, based out of Minnesota. While we don't offer a full review, we do want to encourage our listener's to patronize their product.
Excellent beer for a great cause. 10% of every purchase goes to veterans, and they hire only veterans to work for their company.

And lastly, we ask Adam the ultimate sports question. Call your bookie, Adam offers his Super-Ball (Superbowl) pick for this season.

New Year's Eve

To help start off your New Year right, we begin with predictions for 2015! What do our baked, confectionery fortune read?!? Tune in and find out!

We are also plagued by the age-old question, do bees have noses?

We have taken on the Indianapolis State Museum. They have decided to run an Indiana cocktail contest… but, you must use a Kentucky Bourbon as the base. This shall not stand ISM! No matter how tremendous your Prohibition Exhibit is! (But really though, fantastic exhibit, you should all check that out). thespeakpodcast has developed two of our own entries using pretty exclusively Indiana spirits. And, as always, we bring you an Indiana beer –

It Was A Dark And Stormy Stout by Books and Brews based out of Indianapolis, IN.

We first try our hand at an Indiana based Rock and Rye. The foundation is a rye whiskey drink made by Temptation. While they bottle in Kentucky, the spirit is brewed in Indiana.  This is a smooth, relaxing beverage, best enjoyed after working long days in the rye field.

Our second, mostly successful attempt at a cocktail is an Indiana based Manhattan. This again features Temptation, but we use their straight Bourbon whiskey. Glory-is-ness abounds in Adam’s “choose your fate” explanation of the backstory of this concoction.

And, should you wish to sync this episode with your New Year’s Eve celebration, we do end our podcast with a 10 second count down to the ball drop.

We bribed yet another guest to meet with us out in public. We have Hutch from The Pint Cycle who donated precious minutes of his life that he's desperately wishes he could get back.

We talk Indiana beer and wine, Adam's mom's, and Adam again discusses the ocean.

In the vein of repetition, we do once again mention Scarlet Lane. Pete admits their beer he has had recently seems to have greatly improved (to his mind) and he ups his prior rating to a double solid! There is also a mention of Three Floyds and Munster, Indiana.

Hutch also requested a special shout-out to The Pint Cycle's pit crew, LoKe Bicycles. The keep his cycle in tip-top shape for touring around Fishers and qualifying for the Olympics.

We're looking to recruit a crew to help us pedal The Pint Cycle down the streets of Fishers to be looked upon in envy by those passing by.

Happy freakin' Saturday! Let us help you start your weekend off right by tuning in to learn about milk stouts!We present to you beer from Books and Brews and Left Hand Brewing.

Charlie and the Chocolate Milk Stout... ours was broken. It was more like Charlie and the Sour Milk Stout. If you see Books and Brews bombers on the shelves know that they have perhaps been kept on the shelf by the vendor for too long. We'd recommend going to the brewery directly to acquire their fine fermented beverages to ensure awesomeness. Plus, it's usually a fun time with cool people and excellent grilled cheese sangwiches. And, with the recent franchising, there is sure to be one near you.

We then talk Left Hand Brewing followed by shower beer and then things reach the usual level of random that you come to expect from our show.
