Episode 97: Half Acre Gossamer and Cigar City Jai Alai Cedar Aged IPA

Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Ashley Routson aka The Beer Wench of the famous Drink With The Wench beer blog in episode 97 of the Hop Cast. The Beer Wench was in town for the 2010 Craft Brewers Conference and we couldn’t pass up the chance to get her on the show. The first beer the three of them crack open was the first canned beer from Half Acre Beer Company, Gossamer Golden Ale. An American Blonde Ale coming in at 4.20% ABV which makes for a very session-able beer. They had no problem putting this tall boy away and quickly moved onto the Jai Alai Cedar Aged IPA from Cigar City Brewing. This beer was part of Cigar City’s Humidor Series and has an ABV of 7.5% The Beer Wench had nothing but good things to say about this beer and the guys at Cigar City Brewing.

Both of the beers featured in this episode The Beer Wench is unable to get in California and are also hard to come by if you aren’t in Chicago or Tampa.
