On episode 264 of the Hop Cast, Brad and Ken picked up a mix pack of Berghoff Brewery beers. This mix pack was perhaps a little old and on the shelf awhile since one of these beers was a Winter beer. The first beer the guys dive into is the DortWunder Lager, a 5.5% ABV Dortmunder Lager. Being a tad passed its prime, this one still felt like a solid beer. Although it was a bit old the guys could still tell this is something that would be good on a warm summer day and is probably pretty tasty when fresh. Next up, just in time for the summer is the 7% ABV Winter Ale. Drinking this Winter Ale was surprisingly better than you’d think it would be in June. Let this be a lesson to you, make sure to take a look at dates on beers or packages if it’s possible before purchase.
Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
