In episode 158 Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder decide to open a couple Anniversary Ales. First up is a beer they got from Lee Williams, AKA Hoptopia. It’s the Captain Lawrence 5 Years Later Ale. Brewed with five different malts and five hop varieties; this deep, dark and hoppy 10% ABV ale is meant to be enjoyed with friends. Next up, they love on the Bell’s 25th Anniversary Ale. This strong 8.50% ABV amber ale carries on the Bell’s tradition of flavorful, balanced beers. Brewed with 100% Michigan-grown barley. Both Brad and Ken would recommend opening up this bottle if you have one in the cellar, it is tasting excellent.

Hop Cast – Episode 142: Captain Lawrence Smoke From The Oak

In episode 142 of the Hop Cast Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open up three Imperial Porters from Captain Lawrence. These three beers come from Hop Cast fan and friend Lee Williams, AKA Hoptopia. Brad and Ken had a hard time deciding which of the these smoke from oak beers to jump into first. But after a bit of a debate they decide to go wine barrel first and then the apple brandy and end it with the rum barrel. It was interesting to see how different these beers were just based on the barrels they were aged in. If you get a chance to check these out you should grab one but at 12.00% ABV we’d recommend you share with several friend

Hop Cast – Episode 124: Rabbid Rabbit & Captain Lawrence Barrel Select Series #1

In episode 124 of the Hop Cast Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are tasting a couple beers from two breweries always doing interesting things and pushing the boundaries. The first one they open is an aged Rabbid Rabbit from Three Floyds. This farmhouse ale comes in at 9% and hides that 9% very well. It’s not a classic farmhouse ale but a great interpretation that a lot of people could get behind. They then follow the Rabbid Rabbit up with Captain Lawrence’s Barrel Select Series #1. This is an american wild ale coming in at 7.5%. Both of these were very different beers but worked well back to back.

Brad and Ken thank you for the continued support of the Hop Cast. Thank You for watching.
