Hop Cast – Episode 56

Brad Stark joins Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder for episode 56 of the Hop Cast. The first beer the three of them review and sample is one straight out of Ken’s keg. It is the Stone Soup from New Glarus Brewing. New Glarus is a classic midwest brewery that is rather difficult to find out of the state of Wisconsin. The Stone Soup is a Belgian Pale Ale and has an ABV of 5.3%. After that delicious midwest beer the three of them move onto the Two Jokers Double-Wit from Boulevard Brewing. The Double Joker was a trade to Ken from Dale Miskimins and was well worth the trade. Brad and Ken really haven’t experienced too many double Witbier’s but this beer made them want to try some more. The Two Jokers has an ABV of 8.0% and overall just plain rocked! Brad and Ken previously had a couple Boulevard Brewing beers on another episode and those also didn’t disappoint. If you can find any of Boulevard’s beers in your area, we highly recommend giving them a try.

Hop Cast – Episode 46

For episode 46 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder  and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Dale and Chuck. Dale came all the way from South Dakota with a few cold ones for Ken and Brad to sample and review on the Hop Cast. The first beer the four of them sample is the canned classic Dale’s Pale Ale from Oskar Blues. Dale’s Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale coming in at 6.5% ABV. This is Dale’s favorite beer and since he knew Ken and Brad couldn’t get it here in Chicago he thought he would share it with them. The second beer them sample is the amarillo hopped Odell IPA from the Odell Brewing Company.  A big thanks to Dale and Chuck for being on the show and for sharing some beer that are difficult to find in the Chicago area.
