Episode 214: Grassroots Arctic Saison & Oak Aged Bretta

In episode 214 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are joined by Rick Wildt for a couple brett Saisons. If you haven’t had a brett Saison, well you’re missing out; get to the store and find yourself a bottle. Brett Saisons are great on some of these warmer summer days, they are refreshing and extremely interesting. First up is the Grassroots Arctic Saison. This was a collaboration beer between Hill Farmstead Brewery and Anchorage Brewing Co. Being one of the first beers the Hop Cast has had from Hill Farmstead Brewery, it was a real treat. Next up is the Oak Aged Bretta from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales. Brad and Maeve recently took a trip out to Oregon and stopped by the brewery to pick up this 8% ABV treat.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.

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.
