Brown Beers and Beaver Butts


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.

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.

As always, be sure to listen, subscribe, and tell your friends.

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 www.indybeerweek.org for a full calendar of events and, more importantly, go out and raise a glass for a good cause.

 Cheers!

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.

Please go to the Brewdog Network and download the app to start your free 7-day trial. After that, it's only $4.99 a month if you like what you see.

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.
