Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are still enjoying beers in the backyard on the couch in episode 149. Rather than reaching for more hopped up ales the two of them reach for a lager. This episode they try the Black Star Double Hopped Golden Lager from Great Northern Brewing Co. This 4.6 % ABV beer is a nice treat to drink instead of those low quality macro-lager cans which seem to dominate the market. Definitely a beer both Ken and Brad wouldn’t mind seeing on tap in Chicago to cool down those warm summer days. What was really fun about this episode was getting to see if the bottle beer and canned beer taste any different. There are a lot of different factors that could effect the taste of the beers but it was great to see the outcome. Drinking in the back yard, the can makes for the superior choice and is the winner for us.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
