We love seeing all the new breweries popping up in Chicago. The only thing better is getting a chance to sample some of their tasty offerings. In episode 223 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski crack open a couple bottles from Une Année. Une Année is a Chicago Brewery focused on making good beer with an emphasis on Belgian and French styles. If you’re outside of Chicago, sorry but it might be hard to find anything that brewers Jerry Nelson & Dustin Zimmerman are putting out. We were lucky enough to get a couple bottles from them. First up is the Less is More, a 4.6 % ABV Saison / Farmhouse Ale. It’s definitely light and refreshing and at 4.6% ABV, how could you not want another? Next Ken and Brad open Maya, a 7.6 & ABV Belgian IPA. This one was also great! If this is a sign of what Une Année will be bringing to the Chicago beer scene, then it’s likely you’ll be seeing everyone wanting a taste.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
