Hop Cast – Episode 170: Jinx Proof & Surly Smoke

After a couple big beers in the previous episodes Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski decide to dive into a couple lagers for episode 170. First up is Jinx Proof from 3 Floyds. This continental-style pils was brewed in collaboration with Jinx Proof tattoo in Washington D.C. At 5.10% ABV it’s the kind of beer that you can sip on pretty much all day. Next up, Ken and Brad move onto a bit bigger of a beer. The 8.2% ABV Surly Smoke. This beer is Lager-brewed, like any true Baltic Porter. Made with smoked malts from Bamberg, Germany, the home of Rauchbiers, then mellowed by oak-aging. Maybe not a beer to sip on all day but this would be a great beer with some food straight from the grill.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
