This week we meet Josh Pietrowski, the Master Brewer from Turoni's. Josh is the epitome of awesome. He brews beers for one of Evansville's most staple pizza and beer places, he does a podcast about food here in the 812 (Food 812) he loves cheeseburgers, and he is the teddy bear best friend type of guy.
Creating beer is something that I personally would love to do one day. Beer is such a huge passion of mine, and it is my job so listening to guests like this always makes me a little more school girl than usual. The way Josh talks about the hard work that goes into brewing, the hours, the sweat, the labor really should make it sound less appealing. When he gets to the flavors, tasting his own creations, seeing people's reactions to his beers- it makes it all worth it.
Beer really has a way of making friends. Think about it. We go out for beers with friends, anytime there is a hang, a BBQ, or a pool party, beer is a constant. It's a social lubricant as well as a party maker. This is why it is known to be one of the best things in the world. Well, to some of us.
Honestly though, Evansville is such a community of super talented humans, who seem to know one another, and love to create together. Places such as Sauced, Mo's House, Peephole, and Haynie's Corner as a whole were mentioned during the episode. Really makes you stop and think why you aren't more aware and involved about what's in this community.
Speaking of community!
This weekend, the Haynie's Corner Open- the first annual table tennis tournament is going down. Sunday, at Sauced from 1-5:30 with an after party at MO's.
Can't wait to see what else brews in Evansville.
See what I did there?
