Episode 197: Anchor Porter & Six Row Porter

In episode 197 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski warm up with a couple delicious Porters. With all the big IPAs and Russian Imperial Stouts the Porter sometimes flies under the radar.

First up Ken and Brad open the 5.6% Anchor Porter from San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Company. This is one solid porter that you could use as a benchmark for all other porters. After the Anchor Porter Ken and Brad crack open the Six Row Porter. Six Row just recently started distributing to Chicago from St. Louis and it’s always great to welcome a new midwest brewery to the shelves.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

Hop Cast – Episode 45

Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are at it again with episode 45 of the Hop Cast. This time the two of them are joined by Aggie Gilmore. Aggie said her favorite style of beer is the stout, so Brad went down to the cellar and pulled out a couple Russian Imperial goodies for them to try. Russian Imperial Stouts aren’t usually what you may reach for on a warm summer day but Brad, Ken and Aggie go for it anyway. The first beer they sample and review is the Rabid Duck from the fine folks at Duck-Rabbit. Duck-Rabbit it out in North Carolina and this Russian Imperial Stout comes in at a big 10%. They follow up the Duck-Rabbit with a Happy Ending. Sweetwater is no stranger to the Hop Cast. Brad & Ken have enjoyed pretty much everything they’ve been able to get their hands on from this brewery in the ATL.
