Episode 278: Pineapple Kumquat Berliner Weisse & Pineapple Sculpin

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

On episode 278 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder jump into a couple pineapple beers. With summer coming up, it’s always nice to grab a beer that’s refreshing and not just a hop bomb. First up, the guys open the Pineapple Kumquat Berliner Weisse from Perennial Artisan Ales. Brad and Ken have been long time friends with the guys from Perennial and they really make some fantastic beers. This 4.2% ABV Berliner Weissbier is fruity, tart and delightfully refreshing. Following up the Berliner Weissbier, the guys move onto a beer they are very familiar with; Pineapple Sculpin. This 7.0 % ABV IPA is available year round in 12oz bottles and on draft. Ballast Point has been all in on these fruit variations of their beers and it’s always a treat to give a new one a try.

Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
