Hop Cast – Episode 53

Scott Pellman joins Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder for episode 53 of the Hop Cast. The first beer that the three of them review and sample is the Island Red from Roots Organic Brewery in Portland, OR. The Island Red is an organic beer and something fans of Fat Tire should be able to enjoy. Brad and Ken haven’t had the best luck with organic beers but this one is a decent one. They follow up the Island Red with the Stone 13th Anniversary Ale from one of their favorite breweries out in California, Stone Brewing. The Stone 13th Anniversary Ale was released on June 29th, 2009 and was only bottled once. It has an abv of 9.5%. So grab one of your favorite beers, organic or not and sit back and watch. Thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

    I found the description of Roots Heather beer on their site – just thought I’d share.
    “BURGHEAD HEATHER ALE. This ale was brewed by the ancient tribes of Brittania over 4,000 years ago, but made popular by the ancient Picts around 350 B.C. Originally made in the form of Mead (fermented honey), This ale was coveted by all. Brewed without hops but organic Heather tips, organic honey and organic malts”. That’s my favorite beer at Roots. Actually the only beer they make that I like.
