Hop Cast – Episode 73

In episode 73 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski sit down and chat with some local hometown beer heroes, Doug and Tracy Hurst of Metropolitan Brewing. Metropolitan Brewing is making some amazing craft lagers in Chicago. They are located in Ravenswood just along the Metra tracks. Doug and Tracy give Ken and Brad a little background on the brewery and give them the scoop on what they have planned for the up coming year. Keep an eye out for their beers either on tap or in the bottle because they are all outstanding.

Hop Cast – Metropolitan Interview At Alefest 2009 (Mobile Special)

This is the final interview from the 2009 Alefest. Unfortunately the camera Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder were using died in the middle of this interview so the second half is missing. Brad and Ken did have a chance to talk with Doug Hurst from Metropolitan Brewing a little and he explained the two beers they were serving up at the fest. Hopefully in the near future the Hopcast will be able to meet with Doug again, for an episode featuring Metropolitan brews. Metropolitan is brewing some great lagers so if you’re in the Chicago area, keep an eye out.
