Here’s the podcast:
Time to catch up on some Indy Beer News podcasts! This week’s episode includes information on a 3 Floyds tap takeover happening at Broad Ripple Tavern at noon today featuring Live a Rich Life (a personal favorite of mine), Sun King releasing two packs of Lonesome Dove (Batch 777 Touched by and Angel), and a Barrel Age Replicale Tapping at Tomlinson Tap! Indy Beer News also had a chance to sit down with Sun King’s Clay Robinson for a 45 minute talk on Indy Beer Legislation, Distilleries, and craft beer’s entry into the State Fair for the first time since 1947.

Indy Beer New 2014 Legislation Episode
I’m sure many of you remember the 80+ breweries at this year’s Winterfest. You may remember the pretzel necklaces, the firkins, or the random bursts of cheering. What you may have forgotten was that there were video cameras seeded throughout the venue.Here is the epic video created by ACB Films, which documents all of your uninhibited shenanigans. The funny thing is I remember most of these people when we were pouring. Well documented! You can follow their YouTube channel here.
Not much to say here… So true. So true. Just kidding. I’m probably just as guilty as any of these Arrogant Bastards 🙂 Just ask my friend Nate! He frequently reminds me that “session beer” and other brew jargon only proves how awesome/douchey I am 🙂 By the way, I was totally into microbrew before it was cool. Enjoy!
Beer Is My Passion had a blast with Bill Jimerson of Indy Beer News, along with Eric Baker of The Biercast, Cari Crowe of Mass Ave Pub, Benjamin Sutton of Indiana Brew Haus, and our own Jenn Myers and Erik Howell. The lineup was a great selection of beers available around the holidays. We covered Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Flat 12 Lacto-Matic Milk Stout, BBC Winter Ale, BBC Krampus Dark Strong Ale, Sun King Sink The Clipper Imperial ESB, Powerhouse White River Brown Ale, Powerhouse Diesel Oil Stout, Daredevil JWP Stout, and finished with Upland Bourbon Barrel Teddy Bear Kisses. Great time with people who are passionate about craft beer. Here’s the podcast:
Some of my favorites that night included the Powerhouse Diesel Oil Stout, Daredevil JWP, and Bourbon Barrel Teddy Bear Kisses, however they were all pretty fantastic. Have a listen, and grab some of these great brews as they will be gone before you know it. Cheers!
Triumph the Comic Insult Dog got an all access pass to the Great American Beer Festival this year (Man I knew I should have pursued puppetry further). Either way, he got a chance to cut down craft beer enthusiasts, judges, and brewers alike. Enjoy!
“A microbrew connoisseur walks into a bar and he says to the bartender, “Give me your finest pumpkin ale, but make sure it’s not too hoppy.” So the bartender takes out a baseball bat and beats the man senseless while everyone cheers.”
Haha! I need friends like this 🙂 These guys swapped the plumbing to every faucet in their friend’s house with a connections to kegs in the crawlspace. They also hooked up hidden cameras to film their friends reactions.
Me and the boys played a bit of a joke on our mate Russ. Kegs of beer have been plumbed into every tap in the house, with loads of cameras to catch the action. Took us all day to set up but it was worth it when the icy cool beer came pouring out.
From The Onion
PROVIDENCE, RI—Sources attending a house party on Governor Street confirmed that the dude with the knit hat has been referring to the supply of beer as “libations” throughout the night. “The night is young, my friends—enough libations for everyone,” said the guy whose sideburns poked out from beneath the wool cap and whose name may have been Jordan or Jay—or possibly Kyle—before raising his red plastic cup to eye level, nodding his head slightly, and urging the assembled partygoers to “imbibe.” “We’ve got some fine spirits in the kitchen, too, if anyone’s interested.” The dude, who also wore tight brown corduroy pants, then reportedly circulated among the partygoers, describing his recent “unreal” trip to Colorado.
