Episode 275: Fort Collins Chocolate Stout & Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout

Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world.

On episode 275 of the Hop CastBrad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder kick things off with a little coco loco cocktail before diving into a couple different chocolate stouts. The first beer the guys open up is the Chocolate Stout 5.30% ABV American Stout from Fort Collins Brewery. Subtle hop bitterness rounds out the character of roasted barley and chocolate malt in this beer. Fort Collins Brewery has been around for awhile and this is probably the beer you see most often on the shelves from them. Following up the Double, Brad and Ken open up the Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout. Sadly this 7.0 % ABV stout wasn’t the Coco Loco the guys were really wanting. It also didn’t help that it was bottled in 2014. Which shows that you need to be looking at date codes when picking up beer are the store.

Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

Hop Cast – Episode 40

In episode 40 of the Hop Cast Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski take it to the stoop to toss back a couple brown bag bombers. Since there are very few Olde or King Cobra style craft beers, Ken and Brad had to improvise. They sip on a 2009 Correction Ale from Lagunitas and a Sky High Rye from Arcadia Brewing. Ken and Brad didn’t forget to pour a little out for their homies. With 40 episodes down Ken and Brad are ready for 40 more, thanks for watching them and stay tuned for more.
