Hop Cast – Episode 118: Bangers & Lace

Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are at one of the newest beer bars in Chicago; Bangers & Lace. Bangers & Lace is located at 1670 W Division and features a huge tap list of over 30 beers. To show Ken and Brad Chmielewski all those wonderful beers on tap is the beer director Ria Neri. Ria talks about her plan behind the beer menu and her goal of turning people on to new beers. When Ken and Brad were in, Bangers & Lace featured six different wood aged beers on tap and something they just started playing around with is the idea of beer and whiskey parings. Eric Hay, the man behind Bangers & Lace’s cocktails talks about why this is a perfect paring. To go with all these great beers you need some fabulous food. Ken and Brad were able to talk a bit about the concept and menu with manager Eric Clarke.

Bangers & Lace is a great spot on Division so be sure not so skip over it. Hope you enjoyed getting a behind the scenes look at Bangers & Lace. As always, thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
