In episode 84 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski & Ken Hunnemeder open up a couple rare bottles from Hair Of The Dog. The first bottle they open is the Rose, a Tripel with an ABV of 7.60%. If you are used to the Fred and Adam watch out because the Rose is a crazy and odd beast. Brad and Ken then follow the Rose up with a huge bottle of Matt that Maura Price and Ted Collins sent from Portland, OR. The Matt was brewed to celebrate Bottleworks 10th Anniversary. The Matt honors the two Matts of Brouwers and Bottleworks fame in Seattle, Washington and their contributions to the local craft beer community. Aged in 33 year old Bourbon barrels and Apple Eau de Vie barrels for about one year. At 11.50%, this American Strong Ale shouldn’t be drunk alone. Once again a couple of amazing beers from Alan Sprints over at Hair Of The Dog. If you happen to stumble across either one of these beers be sure to pick them up and grab one for us too.
