The strains of Blackberry Smoke means one thing, it’s time for another Beer & Pig Hogcast!
In this edition of the Hogcast, our host Chad Dukes is joined by the entire cast characters from this year’s Thanksgiving trip: Chad’s brother Casey Dukes, Big Rig Craig, Beer & Pig videographer Shaky Knee, Pastry Dan, and Dave Testa for a spirited recap of the great food, soiled floors, public sex acts, and good times that took place during the 2013 OBX Fall Trip.
Have a listen, tell a friend, and Never Trust a Vegan.
If you’re a follower of the Beer and Pig lifestyle you know that when the call goes out that there’s an opportunity for some meat eating and day drinking, we don’t hesitate to bring you the details. It’s the two things we do best. Drink beer and eat grilled meats.
On Sunday April 6th, 2014, Bad Wolf Brewing Company in Manassas, VA is holding an event that is right up our alley. “Beards, Brews, & BBQ” will go down from 2-7 PM in the Cavalry Village parking lot at the Bad Wolf Brewing Company location on 9776 Center St. Manassas, VA.
There will be beer served by the pint, food from Smoke’s BBQ, music from our pals the Short Hill Mountain Boys, and a chance to win a $100 prize for the best beard. Since the event is in April of 2014 you have no excuse to grow out your whiskers for this event. Beer and Pig’s own Chad Dukes will be the special guest. Plus all the other Beer & Pig boys will be in attendance as well, yes even Pastry Dan. Admission is F-R-double E and beer tickets will cost $5.
Sounds like a great time right? Well what are you waiting for? RSVP now at Bad Wolf Brewing’s Facebook event and we’ll see you out on Sunday April 6th for “Beards, Brews, & BBQ!
Milwaukee is one of the leading manufacturers of heavy duty tools on the market. Screwdrivers, drills, saws, rotary hammers; you name a tool, Milwaukee manufactures it. (Fun fact: it’s actually pronounced “mill-e-wah-que” which is Algonquin for “the good land.”)
Now, Milwaukee Tools has created another tool for your tool box that is both useful for your contracted work or that job around the house as well as the moment that 5 o’clock whistle hits or the job is over.
Presenting the Milwaukee Bottle Opener and Wire Stripper.
With a “Cushion-Grip” handle this bottle opener has the same look and design as a traditional screwdriver. Touting an ergonomic design, the handle resists slippage and helps you pop those tops quickly and easily. With a hole for hanging with your other tools and the helpful “Tip-Ident” cap on the top of the handle this opener should fit seamlessly into your truck box, tool box, belt, or shed.
For those not sold on the bottle opener in the tool box, this item also features a built-in wire stripper that strips up to 10-gauge wire.
Get yours today over at Amazon.com (only 14 left!) or wherever Milwaukee Tools are sold.
One of the main reasons Beer & Pig exists is to promote our passions: celebrating America, eating delicious food, drinking cold beer, and enjoying music with instruments. When those things get combined with a great group of friends, the great outdoors, and a gracious host, you’re talking the best day ever.
In case you missed it (know that I question your life choices and make plans for next time) or if you attended the event and can’t remember anything after your hundredth cup of cider with mead, check out the first video from our brand new YouTube channel, a great video recap of the day. Subscribe to our channel while you’re at it, it’s the patriotic thing to do.
With any event of this magnitude many thanks are in order. First, thank you to the Whole Foods in Fair Lakes, Virginia for the hospitality, use of their patio, the great food and the great craft beers.
Thank you to our pal Shaky Knee for the amazing job on the video.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to everyone who came out to support the Beer & Pig lifestyle on Saturday afternoon and made the day a rousing success.
Always remember and never forget, never trust a vegan.
