Episode 126 takes place in the beer nook at the cabin the Hop Cast guys were staying at in Wisconsin. Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Brad Stark in this episode of Bourbon barrel ales. Unfortunately there were some slight audio issues with this episode. We apologize in advance for this. But even with the audio issues the three of them sip on some great beers. First up was one Brad picked up while he was in Portland, Oregon. It’s the Bourbon Barrel Aged Big Bang Red from New Lompoc. This beer was brewed in June of 2009 and sat in the barrels for just about a year before it was bottled. With an 8.20% this beer packs a ton of flavor and makes for a perfect sipping beer. They then follow up the Bourbon Barrel Aged Big Bang Red with a 2007 Olde Hickory Bardstown Brand Ale Aged In Bourbon Barrels. This beer came special delivered from Brusin’ Ales. With an ABV of 10% this barleywine packs a huge punch. A true sipping beer that tastes like you are drinking a fine bourbon.
Again we are sorry about the audio issue and thank you for watching the Hop Cast.
