On episode 280 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open up a couple American Wild Ales. First up, the guys open the Skully Barrel No. 35 from Paradox Beer Company. This is also known as SALADITOS SALTED PLUM 2015. An 8.0% ABV beer featuring salted and dried plums. Described as a vibrant and piquant beverage meant to stimulate your mind and appetite. Which is perfect for the first beer of the episode. Following up the Saladitos, the guys reach for the Raspberry Sour from a brewery that they are very familiar with; Avery Brewing Company. This 6.5% ABV was aged in oak barrels and is quite different then the beers you usually see from Avery.
Everyday more and more sour and wild beers are hitting the market. It can sometimes take a while for your taste buds to get used to the flavors but keep exploring and see what you find.
Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
