Episode 169: Galaxy White IPA & R&D Golden Ale

In episode 169 of the Hop Cast Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder explore a couple of beers with Brettanomyces. The first beer they open is the Galaxy White IPA from Anchorage Brewing Company. This White IPA was brewed with 100% Galaxy hops, kumquats, coriander & peppercorns. Then fermented in French Oak Foudres and Bottle conditioned with Brett. This was Brad and Ken’s first experience with Anchorage Brewing Company and if this is the sort of stuff we can expect from them, we are all going to be in for a real treat. Next Brad and Ken open a bottle of New Glarus Brewing’s R&D Golden Ale. This 7% Belgian Pale Ale is funky and refreshing. If you’re a fan of slightly funky beers this one is fantastic and makes for something that you just can’t get enough of.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
