A Trip to Scarlet Lane

10/18/2018
More
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...

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...

Shorty: Whitestown Brewfest 2018

9/17/2018
More
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...

After Hours with the Brewdog Network

8/28/2018
More
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...

Ambers and Octopi

8/20/2018
More
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...

Brown Beers and Beaver Butts

7/19/2018
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...

Rise of the Angels and The Legend of the Iceman

6/19/2018
More
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...

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...

Big Lug and The Mayor

1/22/2018
More
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 staples when we visit Upland, Teddy Bear Kisses. We offer a full and comprehensive review on this episode.

A Boozy New Year's Eve

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....

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...
