Indy Beer News has recently released an encore Holiday Edition podcast showcasing several Indiana breweries. This year’s podcast took place at the Monarch Beverage facility (compliments of Bob Mack), and included Mark Cady of Bloomington Brewing Company, Fred Hillenbrand of Tin Man Brewing, Eilise Lane of Scarlet Lane Brewing, Amy Haneline of the Indianapolis Star, Benjamin Sutton of Indiana Brew Haus, and homebrewers Jenn Myers and Erik Howell of Beer Is My Passion. The lineup was a great selection of beers including: Tin Man Damascene Apricot Sour Ale, Broad Ripple Brewpub Wee Alec, Taxman Holiday Tax, Bloomington Brewing Company Persimmon Ale, 18th St. Hunter Cherry, Tin Man Cafe Leche Milk and Coffee Porter, Scarlet Lane Marley’s Ghost, Tin Man Csar Russian Imperial Stout, Mashcraft Ancho Annie, Bloomington Brewing Krampus Imperial Black IPA, and Southern Tier 2XMAS. This podcast will teach you how to predict the future with persimmons, utilize hippies in the brewing process, how to evade demon goat people, and that there are some really passionate people working in the Indy beer scene. Here’s the podcast:
So this just happened… A South Carolina woman was arrested for smashing a ceramic squirrel over her husband’s head and then stabbing him in the chest with it after finding out he didn’t bring home any beer from the store early Christmas morning. Helen Ann Williams is now in county jail with a $10,000 bond. Williams told police that her husband “fell” and cut himself 🙂 Here’s a link to the story. I wonder what beer she wanted? Either way, hopefully your holiday season didn’t include getting stabbed by a ceramic animal. Cheers!
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!
