Mosaic Hops: A Dissertation
It's been too long since we've offended the public at large. In an effort to remind you all of the profundity and brilliance of our beer knowledge we have decided to discuss one hop across three styles. Make sure to take detailed notes as this episode will surely help you pass your Cicerone Certification Program.The offerings in this episode all contain mosaic hops. We start with Small and Soft from Bare Hands Brewery. This New England Style Pale Ale offers great utility and artwork that left Adam nearly speechless. Next up was was an American IPA; Pompeii from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company. Clocking in at 6.3% ABV it's not even close to one of their strongest offerings, but this one stood out with strong pineapple flavors. To finish out the episode we sampled one of Destihl Brewery's Deadhead IPA Series, Touch of Haze. Juicier than the Pompeii it hid the 7.3% ABV quite well. Let us know what you think about mosaic hops and let us know what other hops you think we should explore! Cheers!

It's finally happened! We located an Indiana brewery that we haven't previously offended and was not aware of the inherent risks associated with the mere presence of Adam in the building. Cedar Creek Brewing Company opened the brewery doors and collaborated with us on our first ever commercial beer release, Revival! This pre-prohibition lager is an all-day drinker with an earthy and hoppy finish that is so clear, you could read a book through it! Not that we at thespeakpodcast endorse reading. You know, because effort and stuff. Special thank you to Sugar Creek Malt Company for providing the finest in local malt products and helping making our beer the refreshingly outstanding product that it is. If you want to try it, hurry to Cedar Creek Brewing now. Or, for you folks further up North, Brewdog Indy should have some as well. Oh, and a very special thanks to Kevin from Indy's second favorite podcast, OHHAP :) Cheers!

Ghosts Shouldn't Smoke
That's right, a Halloween episode in May. It just so happens that we sampled Adam Has Two Moms from Sun King brewing back in October and that particular American Amber comes out seasonally in the summer. So this all makes sense... Just really going to need for you to go with it. Two American Amber Ales, a Rye IPA, and a whiskey. Enjoy!

Hey Boos, check out our newest Shorty featuring INterspace. INterspace is an Out of This World (puns are great) collaboration with Cedar Creek Brewing and Indy's (second) best podcast, Out Here Having a Pint. They kept it local featuring malt from Sugar Creek Malt Company and hops from 812 Farms. As space was involved, we knew we needed to keep it brief; lest you all wanted to hear Adam's dissertation about Star Wars in a post-modern America. You may just want to take our word for it, nobody wants to hear that. Let us know what you think about our Shorty series. Feel free to give us a rating as well. Oh, and tell your friends!

A Few Imperial Stouts
Every now and again we're gifted some beverages from brewers or friends of the show. Usually these are limited type releases and not everyone can get their hands on 'em. While we don't always encourage scouring the secondary market for beer, we do have to say... the beers same on this episode were mighty fine. If you're fortunate enough to have some Scheming Demons from Deviate Brewing or a bomber of Feu De Camp from Black Flag Brewing Company sitting around, feel free to play the home game with us. Or, if you've had them before, let us know what you thought of them! Either way, here's another 45 minutes of mindless entertainment XOXO thespeakpodcast PS - Special thanks to our pal, Nate King for stopping by to share a beer with us. If you find yourself if need of a fine smoking pipe, check out his stuff!

Double IPA's and a Toilet Symposium
If you think that title sounds off-putting, just wait until you listen to this episode! We make a very deliberate and concerted effort in our first episode of 2021 to stay on task and on topic. Things start off well while we discuss 18th Street Brewing's Deal with the Devil. It was a boozy little number that we all enjoyed. There is then an artful transition into Cigar City Brewing's Florida Man. A little juicy, a little resin, and a nice little beer. Then things start to take a little turn. Some Double IPA discussion leads to water quality discussion. In an effort to make our discussion sound more intelligent than it actually was, Pete delves into a toilet symposium. Yes, we talk toilets. Not just that, but the most effective way to brew utilizing said toilet. And because Pete seems to think tying reputable companies to his asinine ideas will have favorable outcomes, he's requested brewing companies send us equipment for a head-to-head "brewoff." Their equipment vs a toilet.... Because apparently when state of the art, modern brewing equipment can brew a better product than a porcelain waste disposal device that has to improve their sales, right? Listen in! Share with friends! Leave us a rating!

DZ and THBC
We've never claimed to be the most organized podcast on the internet; we mostly just claim to be the best podcast on the internet. Having said that, please enjoy a podcast that was recorded over a year ago after superfan, "DZ" brought us a bounty of beverages from Terre Haute Brewing Company out of Terre Haute, Indiana. We sampled and reviewed the CitraGenesis Wheat Beer, Madame Brown English Brown Ale, Powerline Imperial Double East Coast IPA, and the Sticky Green Double IPA. We'll have to follow-up with THBC after they listen to this episode and see if they'll allow us in the brewery. These beers are good enough to justify a trip to Terre Haute. We know, we know, it smells - but trust us, it's worth it.

Apologies to Bad Dad
We feel the need to apologize to Bad Dad Brewing Company. They submitted samples to us for our review. In typical, thespeakpodcast fashion; Adam was Adam, Pete managed to misspeak in near record time, and Rob was there to try and coral this clown-show we call a podcast. We reviewed 6 different Bad Dad Brews. The lineup there is Fairmount is tremendous. Listen in to see what we thought. Share with your friends. And then venture up to Bad Dad and tell us what you think!

We've never really participated in, "Sober October" before. However, we thought now might be a good time to try some Alcohol Free beers and report our findings. We sourced an "AF" expert and located another Fultz who is something of a fledging authority on alcohol free beer. Yes, you read correctly. We used both "Fultz" and "expert" in the same sentence... Adam has a brother. Listen in and learn about a rather undiscovered (at least to us) world of fantastic alcohol free beers. We talk about some offerings from: Brew Dog, Athletic Brewing, Omnipollo, and Two Roots.

A Beer with Mo Head Y'all
What seems like an eternity ago now, we sat down with our friend, Ant from Mo Head Y'all. Ant has been a staple in the Midwest craft beer scene for a while now and it was great to finally meet him. Shortly after we sat down with him we were all asked to stay a home and shelter in place due to COVID-19. It didn't seem like the right time to release an episode of us having a good time and enjoying being out and about drinking some pints. Doors are now starting to open up and you can now get a beer at your favorite brewery, or at Mashcraft in Greenwood, where we were when we recorded this episode. We discuss what got us in to craft beer, a side beer hustle, and how craft beer can help bring people together. Be warned, there are lots of swears and the usual shenanigans you expect from your friends at thespeakpodcast. Cheers!
