This week we are proud to be on location at Bier Brewery here in Indianapolis. I am your host, Nate Shultz, I will, and on some occasions have, work for beer. I am sitting along side my two co-hosts for the evening who probably have worked for even less, Mr. Jared Brown and Mr. Ben Sutton. Good evening, gentlemen.

Homebrew corner:

This week we are going to do something a little different. I usually go through and give some advice on a given topic. This week I am going to ask our guest what they would do. this week i would like to talk about developing a recipe. As many different types as there are out there, some people who have been brewing for a while might be tempted to try their hand at creating a recipe.
1. what types of things, the basics, should they need to know when trying to develop a recipe?
2. Tell us the steps, if you are willing, you go through in developing a new beer?
3. some dos and donts?

Style of the week:

This week we decided to talk about the seasonal Bier Brewery has coming up this Saturday, DFG IPA. It has been a work in progress from the beginning and has been tweaked constantly until it was perfected and is the beer you taste today. Be sure to stop by Saturday, January 21st to taste it and get a growler.
