YouTube Preview Image

Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world.

On episode 287 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder try to warm up with a couple of stouts. Their first beer is from Wiseacre Brewing, a brewery that the guys are extremely excited to see arrive in Chicago. Wiseacre Brewing is brewing out of Memphis, TN but the brewer cut his teeth here in Chicago and has been on the Hop Cast a number of times. The guys dive into a can of Gotta Get Up To Get Down, a 5.0% ABV Coffee Milk Stout. If you’ve been watching the Hop Cast for awhile then you know that these guys love their coffee almost as much as their beer. Here the coffee is bold but not overpowering, making for a beer you can knock back quickly. Following up Wiseacre Brewing, Brad and Ken open up a couple bottles of Stone Brewing’s Xocoveza, an 8.1% ABV Mocha Stout. This beer was one that Brad remembered having last season and it was nice to see it back and in a wider release.

Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

When it’s chilly outside all we really want is a tasty stout to warm us up. That’s exactly what’s happening here in episode 194 of the Hop CastBrad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are joined by Erik Jensen for a couple Midwest Milk Stouts. First up is the Revolution Brewing Company, Mad Cow Milk Stout. This 7.5 % ABV Milk Stout is a smooth and creamy Stout made with lactose. If you live in Chicago you might of been able to pick up a bottle of this and the Very Mad Cow which is the barrel aged version. If the regular version is this good, the barrel aged version must be simply fantastic. Next these three gentlemen move onto the Perennial Artisan Ales, Fantastic Voyage. This 8.8% ABV Milk Stout is brewed with coconut. This beer is well balanced with coconut, lactose and black malts.

There is something about a Milk Stout that just warms you up and brings a smile to your face. Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast
