Episode 264: Berghoff DortWunder Lager & Winter Ale

Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world.

On episode 264 of the Hop CastBrad 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!
