Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by The Beer Genome Project co-creator Shawn Horton for episode 54 of the Hop Cast. Ken and Brad pull out a couple Russian Imperial Stouts they had been saving for this special occasion.

Special thanks goes out to Jane Heather Kim for this delicious Missouri treat. Ken, Brad and Shawn then follow Schlafly Reserve up with the Old Rasputin XII. This once a year release from North Coast Brewing in California comes special delivery from Maggie Thurman. The Old Rasputin XII has an ABV of 11.20% and and IBU of 75.
