Hop Cast – Episode 144: SAVOR Flowers & Portamarillo

Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski get to sample a couple harder to find beers from Dogfish Head in episode 144. The first one they open is the SAVOR Flowers. This beer was a collaboration with Dogfish Head and Samuel Adams for the SAVOR American craft beer & food event in D.C. The SAVOR Flowers was made with rosewater, rosebuds, jasmine, hibiscus, lavender, a specialty hop known only as #369, then aged in oak barrels. Ken and Brad then move onto their next beer, Portamarillo an American Porter from Dogfish Head and Epic Brewing. Many of you might of seen this beer being brewed in the Discovery show Brewmasters. These beers are unique and are very different from each other; once again showcasing Dogfish Head’s incredible range as a brewery. It was a rare treat to sample of both these on the Hop Cast. So thank you to the ones that hooked it up with these two wonderful brews. And thank you for watching the Hop Cast.
