Episode 268: Free State Brewing Co. Stormchaser & Cloud Hopper

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

On episode 268 of the Hop CastBrad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open a couple of beers from the Lawrence, Kansas brewery, Free State Brewing Co. It’s not that often we see beers from Kansas although there are some great breweries out that way like Tallgrass Brewing, Boulevard Brewing Co. and Free State Brewing Co. On this episode the guys have two different IPAs they are giving a try. The first beer they dive into is the Stormchaser IPA, a summer seasonal IPA coming in at 59 IBUs. This beer is crisp, juicy and wonderfully balanced. Following up the StormchaserBrad and Ken open up the Cloud Hopper an Imperial IPA coming in at 9.2 % ABV, watch out! This robust beer boldly combines three highly potent American hop varieties: Columbus, Chinook and Cascade. Hops, Hops and more hops! A decent DIPA that’s worth trying if you’re looking for something a little bigger than the Stormchaser.

Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
