On episode 283 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are cracking open a couple beers from Illinois. Both of these breweries are fairly new and it’s sometimes tricky to keep up with all the great beers they are brewing. If you’re in Chicago you may have had something from these breweries or you may have recently seen the Alarmist Brewing cans in the stores.
First up in episode 283 is the Alarmist Brewing, Phobophobia Patersbier. Coming in at 4.8% ABV a Patersbier is sort of like a lawnmower beer for the Trappist Monks. It’s a perfect beer for all day drinking or just something to cooldown with. This is a really fun beer to see Alarmist Brewing because it’s not something you see from a lot of breweries. Next up, the guys move on to the Scorched Earth Exiled Angel. The Exiled Angel is a Belgian Strong Ale coming in at 7.9% ABV. Not having had much from these guys before, it was a real treat to give them a try.
We love seeing what all our local breweries are up to in Chicago and if you can get your hands on either one of these, they are worth trying. Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
