Episode 119: Weyerbacher Winter Ale & Hinterland Winterland

It’s been almost two months since Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski have sat down to review a couple beers. The two of them have been busy visiting a number of bars and breweries in chicago. Well, there’s no better time then the holidays to share a couple of fine winter ales together. In this episode Ken and Brad exchange gifts of fine crafted ales in front of the Christmas tree. The first beer they open is the award winning Weyerbacher Winter Ale. Coming in at 5.6% ABV this beer isn’t going to knock you on your ass but it does have a nice balanced flavor. The two of them follow that up with a Hinterland Winterland from Greenbay, Wisconsin. Its not technically a winter ale but an American Porter because really there is no better time for a nice porter then when the snow is falling. This beer comes in a pint sized bottle and carries an ABV of 7.5%. Why not bring some delicious craft beer to your holiday gatherings and toast to a great season.

Hop Cast – Episode 76

The Hop Cast has gone wild for episode 76. Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open up the caged and corked Weyerbacher Riserva. As soon as Charlie Drews heard the Hop Cast was opening a bottle of Weyerbacher on the show he jumped at the chance to be on… it may be his favorite brewery. The Riserva is aged in oak barrels with red raspberry puree and Brettanomyces yeast. Coming in with an ABV of 11.40% this ale isn’t messing around. Wild ales aren’t something that is featured that often on the Hop Cast so Ken takes the time to explain what makes a wild ale different from a sour ale and how the process has changed over the years. After the Weyerbacher they move onto the Jack D’Or from Pretty Things. Pretty Things is new on the craft beer scene so it was great to try one of their beers on the show. The Jack D’Or is a saison with an ABV of 6.4%. Currently they offer about four beers with Jack D’Or being their flagship beer.

Grab yourself a beer and get wild with the Hop Cast.
