Episode 241: Saison De Wench & De Proefbrouwerij Fifth Star

In episode 241 of the Hop CastBrad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open a couple different Saisons. First up is one that The Beer Wench sent us from Bison Brewing. Saison De Wench is a 6.0% ABV botanically-inspired tribute to the beer wench. It has been years since Ashley joined Brad and Ken on the Hop Cast so having her beer is the next best thing. Next up is the De Proefbrouwerij Fifth Star, a 6.5% ABV Raspberry Rye Saison with Brettanomyces. De Proef partnered with Windy City Distributing to create this exceptional Raspberry Rye Saison for the 2014 Chicago Craft Beer Week.

During these warm summer days a refreshing Saison is a great way to keep cool.

Episode 212: Tripel Threat & Cigar City Tropical Tripel

In episode 212 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder double down on a couple triples. They’ve got the Tripel Threat from Cambridge Brewing Company and the Tropical Tripel from De Proefbrouwerij / Cigar City. Brad and Ken decide to jump first into the Tripel Threat, leaving the Tropical Tripel on deck. The Tripel Threat is a Tripel from Cambridge Brewing Company in Massachusetts. This was the first beer Brad and Ken have had from CBC and it was a real treat. Next they dive into the Tropical Tripel, a 9.5% ABV collaboration beer from De Proefbrouwerij and Cigar City. If you can get your hands on either of these, they are well worth it.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast
