Episode 233: Begyle Brewing Co.

For episode 223 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder make a trip up to Ravenswood to check out Begyle Brewing Co. Brad and Ken chat with Kevin Cary and Matt Ritchey to find out what they’ve been up to and how they are making such great beer. Kevin and Matt give a little taste of what you can expect from Begyle in the future and what they have planned. Begyle Brewing Co. is continuing to grow and expand, which is fantastic to see for them and for chicago craft beer fans. They recently opened up a tasting room where you can get growler fills and buy bottles, so be sure to check that out.

If you’re in Chicago, be on the look out for Begyle’s beers on tap and in the store, it’s worth it.

Episode 208: Begyle Crash Landed & 5 Rabbit Missionario

Brad Chmielewski & Ken Hunnemeder crack open a couple Chicago Wheat beers in episode 208. Both of these breweries are petty new but have been growing quickly and making some tasty stuff. First up Brad and Ken open the Crash Landed from Begyle Brewing Company. This 6% American Pale Wheat Ale pours a lovely straw color and the taste is surprising and pleasant, a little different than what you usually see from a wheat beer. Next up they open the newest beer from 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, the Missionario. Missionario is a 6.8% unfiltered wheat beer fermented with muscat grape must and almonds.

A couple tasty beers from Chicago breweries for the summer. Grab yourself some and enjoy the great weather.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
