We’re doing a bit of celebrating in this episode, we’ve reached 200 episodes! Thank you all for watching each and every episode.
To celebrate Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are in the barrel warehouse at Goose Island sipping on a couple barrel aged beers. First up is the Firestone Walker Double DBA, this 12% ABV is an amazing example of how the barrel effects and changes a beer. If you love DBA as much as Ken does then Double DBA is going to be right up your alley. At 12 % ABV this beer is dangerous because all you want to do is knock back the entire bottle yourself. Next Ken and Brad crack open a bottle of the 2013 Driftwood Singularity. This beer was sent to us by a Hop Cast fan and it was a real treat to get to sample it. This 14% ABV Russian Imperial Stout spent 4 months in Kentucky bourbon barrels and those barrels really added some great flavors.
Do you have a barrel aged beer that you love?
Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast, we hope you’ve enjoyed all 200 episodes.
