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.
