In episode 125 Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Anthony Stagno to share a couple rare beers from his cellar. Anthony was kind enough to crack open two limited beers on the Hop Cast. The first one was Kate The Great from Portsmouth. This beer has escaped Ken and Brad’s grasp for years and they finally got their first taste of this well balance stout on the Hop Cast“>Hop Cast. With an ABV of 10.5% if you can stop yourself from drinking it right away, then it should age very well in the cellar. The three of them follow upKate The Great with Coast Brewing’s Blackbeerd. This was one of the first releases of this beer and has been sitting in Anthony’s cellar for over three years. This russian imperial stout with a 9.3% ABV held up to the years very well. These are two great beers that if you ever have the opportunity to sample you shouldn’t pass up.
