Back in June I had the pleasure of sitting down with the mother-daughter house rehab team 2 Chicks and a Hammer consisting of Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak that star in their own show on HGTV called “Good Bones”. Their first season ended in May, and they are working hard now on season two. During our chat we talk about how they started in the rehabbing business, how HGTV got involved, the dynamic of working as a mother-daughter team and more.....
When we spoke Mina was preparing for her upcoming wedding. (not sure if she is going by her new last name professionally....guess I should ask her) and the pair were just getting started on their latest “project”. We also talk about their love of going into older neglected neighborhoods....where they both live by the way.....and making changes for the good!
I was so excited to meet and speak with Karen and Mina and I hope you enjoy it too!
If you are a beer drinker or have just wondered what the fuss is about all the new “craft” beers out there, this show is for you. We talk to Jerry Connor the co-founder of Bier Brewery In Indianapolis. Jerry along with his son Darren the brewmaster have managed to create quite a stir in the Craft Beer world.
At the recent World Beer Cup awards presented by the Brewer’s Association at the 2016 Brewers Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Bier Brewery took home TWO Gold medals. Only one other brewery in the world won two gold medals this year.
Bier Brewery won gold for their Sanitarium, Belgian Style Qaudrupel and for ESB, English Style Extra Special Bitter. We taste test these beers and more and learn about the different styles and what sets Bier Brewery apart from other craft brewers.
Jerry and his son Darren have only started the company 5 years ago but immediately wowed customers with a variety of true to style, traditional biers. If you are traveling to the Indianapolis area Bier Brewery is worth a stop. They are located at 5133 E. 65th St. on the NE side of Indianapolis. You can also contact them at bierbrewery.com
So sit back, pour a cold one and let’s talk bier!
