In episode 196 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder crack open a couple Russian Imperial Stouts that you have likely seen at your local beer store. Both of these beers are pretty common and are worth checking out because they are both great. Brad and Ken kick off the episode by diving into one of their favorites, North Coast’s Old Rasputin. This 9% ABV Russian Imperial Stout has never disappointed… well unless you drink your entire four pack that night. Next up is the 2010 and 2011 Big Eddy from Leinenkugel. This 9.5 % ABV Russian Imperial Stout might surprise a few of you who have been turned off by Leinenkugel but a good beer is a good beer and Big Eddy is delicious.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
