Episode 242: The Hop Garden Local Harvest Pale Ale & Bushel Basket IPA

Welcome to episode 242 of the Hop Cast! On this episode Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are joined by Steve Wyatt who brought along a couple beers from The Hop Garden. The Hop Garden is a hop farm and beer company based in Belleville, Wisconsin. They are using their own locally grown hops for the beer, which is brewed at the House of Brews in Madison, Wisconsin. Their first bottles just started showing up in February so it was a real treat to try this new brewery. The first beer the guys open is the Local Harvest Pale Ale, a 5.50 % ABV American Pale Ale. Next up is the second release from The Hop Garden, the Bushel Basket IPA. This beer comes in at 7.3 % ABV and has a hop-load of flavor from the Cascade, Nugget, Columbus and Willamette Hops!

If you’re in Wisconsin, you don’t get much more local then what The Hop Garden is doing. If you see their stuff, give them a try. Cheers! And thanks for watching the Hop Cast!

Episode 172: Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter & Pipeworks End Of Days

In episode 172 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Steve Wyatt as they reach for a couple beers from two local Chicago breweries. The first beer up is Double Daisy Cutter, an Imperial IPA from Half Acre Beer Co. This is the third release of Double Daisy Cutter and it’s always a treat when it shows up. If you’re a fan of the normal Daisy Cutter then the 8.0% ABV Double Daisy Cutter is going to be right up your alley. After that tasty beer from Half Acre Beer Co. Ken and Brad grab the End Of Days from the newest Chicago Brewery, Pipeworks Brewing Company. End Of Days is a 6.1% ABV milk stout that has been aged with cacao nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and ancho chilies. The result is a rich chocolaty stout, with just a hint of spice. It’s a good beer from Pipeworks and is a great sign to come from this nanobrewery.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
