Episode 82: Perfect Storm & Black Tuesday

In episode 82 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are joined by Anthony Stagno to sample some rather rare beers with high ABVs. The first one the three of them jump into is the one Anthony brought with him, the Perfect Storm from Pelican. The Perfect Storm is an English Barleywine with an ABV of 13.5%. The 2009 Perfect Storm is Pelican’s 2008 Stormwatcher’s Winterfest Barleywine, aged in 1998 Evan Williams Bourbon Barrels. After the Perfect Storm three of them savor the final drops they then move onto The Bruery’s Black Tuesday. The Black Tuesday is an Imperial Stout with an ABV of 19.5%. This might be the highest ABV beer Brad and Ken have featured on the Hop Cast. While enjoying this delicious black treasure, Anthony shares the story of how the name Black Tuesday came to be.
