Hop Cast – Episode 80

Brad Chmielewski & Ken Hunnemeder are joined by Katie Sirles in episode 80 of the Hop Cast. The first beer they open on the episode is the Mirror Mirror from Deschutes Brewery. Mirror Mirror is a barley wine with 35% of it aged in oak barrels. With a ABV of 11% a glass of this should not be taken lightly. After the Mirror Mirror the three of them head to the stove to warm up their next beer. This is the first warm beer featured on the Hop Cast, a very rare treat. It is the La Dragonne from Brasserie des Fanches. The La Dragonne has an ABV of 7%. If you’re able to find this beer, make sure to follow the instructions on how to warm it up.

    Good episode guys. I'll have to try and find a warm beer for my next snowboard session. What food would you pair with the La Dragonne? I'm imagining a dessert, maybe carrot cake, would be delicious with it.

    p.s. I'm glad I'm not the only one still saying “That's what she said”
