The Beeriest Ballet

Culture abounds in this our most sophisticated of episodes. We sat down with Stirling and Audrey of the Ballet Theatre of Indiana. They are partnering with Sun King to bring Beer and Ballet back to the Basile Theatre at the Historic Athenaeum.

We talk Sun King Beer, learn new and pretentious sounding French ballet terms and manage to negotiate a spot for Adam in the stage performance.

Be sure to check out Beer and Ballet IV to enjoy beer, ballet, pop music, aerial performances, and the chance that Adam may be wearing a dress and performing pull-ups for all to see. Seriously, all of this is a bargain at a mere $25 a ticket.

Purchase tickets here! The shows will be on February 16th and 17th (again) at the Basile Theatre at the Historic Athenaeum at 7:30 pm.

       
We decided to head out for a beer with our buddy, James from We Serve Insurance and to smash some poutine at Big Lug Canteen!

The episode is chocked full of our usual beer related banter: Adam gets lightly "a-salted" at around 17 minutes, James makes a Superbowl prediction, Adam confuses Chinese and Japanese culture, Pete makes fun of Adam's parents and we end the show in our traditional fashion.

Special shout-outs to The Mayor, Big Lug, and We Serve Insurance.

       
Hey Boos! Winter got you down? Why not relax with another Shorty from thespeakpodcast?

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.

We round out the evening with one of the staples when we visit Upland, Teddy Bear Kisses. We offer a full and comprehensive review on this episode.

       
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 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. An 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 area, West Fork Whiskey.

“Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer–and another one!”

       
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!

Here it is, our second hour with Flat12’s, EZ and Phil. In this hour we sign Pete up for another binge eating contest scheduled for July, 4th. We do also discuss more future releases from Flat 12 and were privileged enough to sample their 12 Days of Christmas release from last year, a Belgian Tripel.

We wrap up by discussing our favorite budget beers, our least favorite beer styles, and the first beer we ever had. Great behind the scenes discussion with a couple of great guys.

We’re back again with another “two-parter” from a brewery. This week we feature, Flat12 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 as 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 Flat12’s Felicette Belgium Dry-Hopped Pale and their Pinko! Russian Imperial Stout.

The 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.

If you liked the Part 1, be sure to give Part 2 a listen too!

This is part two of our visit with Black Acre Brewing. We’re a few beers into our evening at this point, but Jordan and Steve share with us some of the “nuts and bolts” of brewing. We also get additional information from James of Kitto Insurance about the importance of asking questions.

Get some exclusive industry insight as it relates to cost, consumers, marketing, and region when it comes to craft brewing and craft sales.

Doing some traveling for the Thanksgiving Holiday and seeking some company for the long drive? Tune in to Parts one and two of our interview with, Black Acre Brewing.

Surprisingly enough, we touch on two out of state brews this episode. We start off with, Free Range Brewing’s, “Brother Was His Name,” and then move to Knee Deep Brewing’s, “Breaking Bud.”

Not going to lie, from there we discuss a bidet. Like, a lot.

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.

Sit back and enjoy what may be our most beer centered beer podcast ever. Be sure to listen, rate, share and subscribe.

Dug deep into 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 into a 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.

Cheers!
