More Beer? Oh Dear!

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?

Boga? Yeer? Beer Yoga.

 

If you incorporate beer into exercise, is it really exercise?

This week’s podcast took us into the world of beer yoga. You take two of the best things in life and combine them. This trend has been making its way around the globe, and being from one of the beer meccas of the world (Washington State) I am fully a fan of this concept.

I have never participated in the ritual, but have always wanted to. Beer is a big deal to a lot of people, and even in Evansville I see the beer snobs rising everywhere.

When it comes to taking care of yourself, a lot of us are guilty of not doing our best. Reward systems are great and I feel like beer yoga is a workout with a reward. It’s hard work though, doing yoga while holding this beer. The challenge would lie in not spilling, or making a complete ass out of yourself.

When listening to how passionate Brooke is about yoga, it really makes you want to try. This concept makes it so beer lovers, and yoga lovers alike can experience yoga in a different way. Not only is it held at Evansville Brewhouse, which is a great atmosphere with fantastic beer, she also mentioned holding a class at Carsons. All different breweries in town are jumping on this opportunity, and that is amazing.

If you’ve wanted to try yoga, this is your chance. A professional yoga instructor lets you drink beer while you are exercising. There is nothing wrong with that.

Follow Evansville Brewhouse on Facebook for postings about when the class takes place, and hop on over to the Instagram and give Brooke a follow- om_powered.

Beer and yoga on!
