Hop Cast – Episode 78

In episode 78 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski & Ken Hunnemeder are joined by a couple of true gentlemen, Brian McCauley and Scott Pellman. The four of them open up a couple beers that you can’t find in the Chicago area. The first one they crack open is the Stumptown Tart from Bridgeport Brewing. With an ABV of 8% this is a hefty beer that carries a pink hue and packs a bit of a tart kick. Next, they follow that up with Troegs Flying Mouflan. This beer is part of Troegs seasonal releases and you can usually find it on the shelves in March. Troegs classify this beer as pushing Nugget Nectar off the side of a cliff, and at 9.3% this guy is not to be messed around with.

    The Stumptown Tart (Cherry Wheat) that Leslie and I had a few weeks back was solid, but I still hold New Glarus way ahead in the fruit beer category. As for Tröegs, I need to find some. Sounds like Ken and Shawn have it on draft at home.

    Great episode guys! Cheers!

    Thanks Shawn! Ken & Shawn did have the Troegenator Double Bock on tap a while back.

    I would definitely suggest Bridgeport's Hop Czar to you guys. Next time I come back to Chicago I'll try to remember to pick you up some.
