On episode 271 of the Hop Cast, it’s December 23rd and it’s Festivus. To celebrate Festivus we have the perfect beer on this episode, Festivus Ale from Piece Brewery. Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder make a trip down the street to Piece Brewery on North Avenue to pick up a couple growlers to celebrate this fabulous day. The first growler they dive into is the Memories of Now, a collaboration beer between Piece’s Jonathan Cutler and Matt Brynildson, the brewmaster of Firestone Walker Brewing Co. in Paso Robles, California. It was Brynildson’s first time brewing on the system that he helped install for Piece in 2001. After a glass or two of the Memories of Now, the guys move onto the 8.0 % ABV Belgian Dark Ale known as Festivus. This is a beer that the guys always make a special trip to try at Piece every year.
This episode is a true Festivus miracle, cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
