On episode 267 of the Hop Cast, Brad and Ken open a couple large format beers that are brewed with spices. Kicking if off they start with the Don de Dieu from Unibroue. Don de Dieu is a 9.0 % ABV Belgian Strong Ale and was named after the explorer Samuel de Champlain who arrived on the ship Don de Dieu, or “Gift of God” to found Quebec in 1608. It’s always nice to learn a little bit of history with our beer. After tasting the Don de Dieu, the the guys then move onto Logsdon Brewing’s Straffe Drieling. This 8.8 % ABV Tripel is characterized by complex yet mildly spicy character from the compliment of traditional spices. If you’ve been watching the Hop Cast for awhile you probably already know that Brad and Ken are big fans of Logsdon and try to pick up bottles whenever they can.
Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
