The Beeriest Ballet

2/1/2018
More
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...

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.

Shorty: Upland Brewing

1/14/2018
More
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

12/31/2017
More
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....

The Remembrance of the Spirit of Christmas

12/25/2017
More
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...

12/14/2017
More
Here it is, our second hour with Flat 12'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. If you...

Flat 12: The First

12/12/2017
More
We're back again with another "two-parter" from a brewery. This week we feature, Flat 12 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. 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...

11/22/2017
More
This is part two of our visit with Black Acre Brewing. We're a few beers in to our evening at this point, but Jordan and Steve do 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.

Collab Trifecta

11/7/2017
More
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...

Brown Ales and Carson's Brown Cow

10/26/2017
More
Dug deep in 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 in to discussion regarding a Pecan Nut Brown Ale, Lazy Magnolia out of Mississippi. It was right about that time I learned why this episode had...

Celebrate your Cider-Day with us! On tap this episode we've got a double-dose of ciders starting with an offering from New Day Craft! Johnny Chapman Hard Apple Cider (sweetened with Sorgum) is *according do Adam* made with only the thickest of juicy, red apples. Allow him to guide your taste buds through both a through and gross description of both the bottle and the beverage. Things continue along the path you've come to expect from our show as we delve in to Crispin's Bourbon Char Aged...

Books and Brews Shorty

9/19/2017
More
In honor of the abbreviated work week, we're releasing another episode in our, "shorty" series. This shorty takes us on location to Books and Brews in Zionsville. We heard from our secret industry sources that the Zionsville location has a revamped food menu and is now family friendly. Family friendly of course means that children are allowed so we brought Adam who promptly found the crayons and a place mat and proceeded to begin coloring. His night culminated with an embarrassing...

Shorty: Grand Junction Brewing

9/19/2017

Another day, another Shorty. We got to sit down with head brewer, Mike Hofferman of Grand Junction Brewing and talk, "shop." We find out what makes Grand Junction unique and how they are giving back to the Westfield community. Mike also let us in on some upcoming events and their canning of their (medal winning) Dark Road Porter for the first time. That is about as professional as things get for us, and special guest Charlie (aka Uncle Chuck, aka TheBeerReverend). From there we go on to...

812 Farms Part Deux

9/1/2017

As is probably apparent, we're a few beers in at this point and we decide to add a few more. We sampled Space Haze from 450 North, 3 Floyds Floy Division India Pale Ale I, and Destihl's Blueberry Gose. Be sure to visit 812 Farms at the 8th Annual GnawBrew from September the 15th through the 17th. And, then again on September the 23rd at 450 North's Corn Maze Beer Fest. They will most assuredly be events you won't forget... Or, if you're doing it right, events you'll never be able to...

Wheat Beers and LeBron James

7/31/2017
More
Thanks for tuning in to our wheat beer triple header! So, this one lingered in the archives longer than most. Was it simply because it was neglected on an external hard drive? Could it be that Pete simply couldn't deal with the pain of LeBron failing to bring another championship to "The 'Land?" We may never know. Let's kick things off with an American Style Wheat Beer Bloomington Brewing Company, it's their 10 Speed Hoppy Wheat! Our next beers come from Magic Hat Brewing Company (Special...

It's Thanksgiving! And for those of you looking to enjoy spending quality time with family huddled around a computer or smart device listening to your favorite podcast, we're here for you. Or, sink the podcast up with the Macy's Day Parade and see what that sounds like (spoiler alert: they don't sync up). As is it Thanksgiving, we blew the budget and brought in special celebrity guest, Matt Muncy from Indiana on Tap. Instead of the traditional maize, he brought us booze from Cardinal...

Blondes and the great Labatt revolt!

7/25/2017

In this, our latest installment, Adam teaches us all about meat. Or all he knows about meat. Or how Adam thinks your order meat. Adam used English words, but his understanding of the words he uses is nearly non-existent. We have a pretty positive review of Central State's House beer, and our out-of-towner this week genuinely impressed the group; Six Point Brewery's C.R.E.A.M. Coffee Blonde. Canadians are running out of beer! Tune in and see how you can help, buddy. And... Adam craps his...
