BES: Irish Beer with Four Day Ray and The Pint Cycle


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.

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.

Three cheers for four beers and a Happy Fourth of July to all! Keeping with the tradition of expressing our unwavering patriotism we bring you another super special edition episode sponsored by our friends at Books and Brews!

We go back-to-back with two very different IPA's from Scarlet Lane Brewing. First their Vivian Red IPA and then a less traditional Bourbon Barrel Aged Braggot style IPA, Eirik Bloodaxe.

To finish up we bring in two offerings from Upland Brewing. We start a little safe with their Dragonfly IPA and then knock it up a notch with Darken, a sour ale.

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.

Cheers!

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.

Celebrate National Beer Week with this banger from your buddies at thespeakpodcast!

On a warm Spring day we very few beers are as refreshing Gose. We kick things off with the Indiana standard gose from, Triton Brewing, Barn Phantom. An interesting offering out of Collective Brewing in Ft. Worth, Cup O' Beer is our out-of-towner.

To wrap things up, we may or may not have promised to spend a few hundred dollars obtaining a beer should this episode get 10,000 downloads.
