The 18th Amendment, which made it illegal to manufacture, sell, or transport alcohol, went into effect on January 17th, 1920. This led to 13 years of organized crime, corruption, and much bloodshed across the land, as well as what we now refer to as the Roaring ‘20’s.
Due to the fortunate failed attempt at prohibition, there was an explosion of Americans developing their own recipes for beer and liquor. We want to praise those early companies that made it through the era and cheer those who are making new recipes and forging their own name in the rich and delicious world of brews and spirits.
Join us each Friday evening as we explore the rich American history of booze and bootlegging from the early days of prohibition through the new craft beer and spirits craze that has taken the country on by storm today, along with our own tales of drunkenness and debauchery.
King of the County Fair
Sometimes master brewer, sometimes canvas for body art, always good friend, the one and only Dan Gohr joined the boys at Alley’s Alehouse to talk about his new, and quite delicious baked goods business, Bonnie Bake.
We have been blessed over the last few years of enjoying many of Dan’s craft brews as well as never sugar coating when he needed to tell us our beers needed some TLC. . . or a defibrillator. So we were certain whatever Dan was getting into now would be creative and delectable
Pigs Hot On The Back Burner
The Pigs are always eager for Rochester road trips to record with Jessica Shafer of The Native Nook and the Digital Wolf Network. This time the boys had the pleasure of jumping on Jessica’s podcast, On The Back Burner with her Cohost, John Adams(who may or may not be a pirate)
Luis and Alissa Troutman Ferro, owners of Uncorked along with homebrewer, Michael A Lushbaugh of the Marshall County Brew Club provided the beer fuel for the afternoon and joined in on the always fun conversation.
Pigs out on a Ledgeview
The Pigs take a little roadtrip to Warsaw, Indiana to spend an afternoon at the Ledgeview Brewing Company. Owners Craig and Abby, along with tapster and sometimes comedian Tasha Livinghouse, entertain and stuff the Pigs with an array of sumptuous craft brews and scrumptious BBQ. The afternoon went so well, they had to keep the mics hot and record two full shows.
Crack a cold one and enjoy Part One of their day at Ledgeview and stay tuned for Part Two in a few weeks.
The boys gather around the round table at Pinheads & Alley’s Alehouse to dig into some Prohibition history while sampling a few of the many fine brews on tap.
The conversation zigs and zags through alcohol talk, some nerdy Star Wars analysis, and weird alcohol laws around the country.
Crack a cold one, tune in and make your way to Alley’s Alehouse inside Pinheads Entertainment Center in Fishers, Indiana.
After the show, let us know in the comments about any odd alcohol laws we may have missed.
Alley’s Free For All
The boys take a break from the summer heat with some cocktails and cold craft brews on tap at Alley’s Alehouse. Alex, Alley’s very own mad mixologist, helps kick off the evening with a round of tasty Bacon Old Fashions made with Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey.
Tune in for an hour of alcohol talk and beer reviews and make your way to Pinheads & Alley’s Alehouse in the Pinheads Entertainment Center in Fishers, Indiana for some adult or family friendly entertainment seven days a week.
Red Still Remains
Past guests, the members of the band Red Remains, still intact and rockin’, join the boys at Alley’s Alehouse for some brews and catching up with what they’ve been doing and what’s coming up for their fans. It may have been a hungry bunch as the conversation leaned heavily on beer and fast food guilty pleasures. Some beer reviews and Scotch talk round out a great evening with the band.
