B.o.B. Official Liberal Sissy Safe Space

We invited some friends to drink cheap beer and lament the outcome of the most recent presidential election. Though its sounds insufferable, we had a good time. Feelings are always better out than in. Follow us on Facebook (/beardsonbeers) and Twitter (@beardsonbeers)


With Special guest Ryan Hammer

We only drink one beer in this episode but it's a good one. Sriracha Stout from Rogue. We also talk to Indiana native Ryan Hammer who runs Crazy Horse Hops just east of Indianapolis. Last year Crazy Horse grew a quarter acre of hops. This year they have scaled up to 10 acres with plans for more in the future. Have a listen and enjoy your brew!


Beers from Buffalo, NY with Erik Wollschlager

Returning guest Erik Wollschlager brings some of his favorite brews from in and around his stomping grounds of Buffalo, NY. Sit in on the conversation as Matt, Adam, and Erik enjoy beer and a casual chat about the happenings of the world since our last episode.


With Guest Hayley Johnson

*Trigger Warning* In this episode we have a very special guest. Hayley Johnson is involved with Let's Comedy of Fort Wayne, IN, local theater, and has a blog where she chronicles her life and thoughts. This is a special episode of Beards on Beers. We drink some really great beers, have some good laughs, but most of the conversation revolves around sexual assault and rape (thus the trigger warning). Hayley shares her experiences and perspective on the issue as the news of convicted rapist...


With Guests James and Erik

You've heard Matt and Adam get deep with James Miller before. This week James is back along with a new guest, Erik Wollschlager. James is from eastern Ohio and Erik is from Buffalo, NY. Both love beer, and both love to talk. Listen in as the whole group share some Indiana beer and chat it up to all time highs...or lows. It's unclear...Enjoy this episode!


On Location at Deer Park Irish Pub

Last time you heard us interact with the crowd on primary night here in Indiana at Deer Park Irish Pub. This episode is the night that made the live episode possible. We sat in the booth/cubby and enjoyed a few of the many great beer selections they have to offer. toward the end of the episode we had a welcome, but unexpected guest. Tony Henry, Deer Park's owner greeted us and sat down to tell us all about his fine establishment. What a great place to grab a drink and see some pals!


Live on Indiana Primary Night!

It's our first podcast with a live audience! We are at Deer Park Irish Pub in Fort Wayne, Indiana doing our regular beer reviews and banter, with a twist. Patrons of Deer Park participate in this episode by choosing the beer we drink and give impassioned opinions as we update the polls regarding the Indiana primary election and talk about what's happening in our country.

Live From the Trion Tavern!

We're at another great Northeast Indiana Establishment; The Trion Tavern in New Haven. With 58 taps, there's something for everyone at this small town gem.
