Hop Cast – Episode 145: Brooklyn Sorachi Ace & Port Brewing La Cruda

It’s an east coast, west coast beer face off in episode 145 of the Hop Cast. Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski sample a couple different beers from different ends of the United States. First up is the Sorachi Ace, a great saison from Brooklyn Brewery. This 7.6 % ABV saison features the rare Japanese developed hop, Sorachi Ace. If you see one of these bottles, don’t hesitate, it’s well worth the price tag. Next Ken and Brad move onto the La Cruda from Port Brewing. This 6.7 % ABV American porter was brewed to commemorate the Makanudo Porter from the startup San Diego brewery Cerveccerias La Cruda where Tomme & Troy got their start. Another fantastic beer. Both the east coast and the west coast delivered some great brews but the real winners are Ken and Brad since they got to drink them.

Thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

    Awesome guys I just reviewed the Sorachi Ace myself http://youtu.be/2ouCukViQj8 And you guys mentioned the single hop mikkeller I did a side by side of a few of them, such a great learning tool for new craft drinkers/brewers.
