Hop Cast – Episode 117: FOBAB 2010

Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are at The Eighth Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers in episode 117 of the Hop Cast. This festival is held once a year and if you saw last years episode, Brad and Ken had a blast and this year was just as great. The Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers features over 150 beers from 53 different breweries, representing 18 states. Brad and Ken took it up a notch this year by attending both the day and night sessions, clocking in over 10 hours of drinking. They took a few breaks from sampling these fine beers to talk with a couple Hop Cast fans; Deb Turner and Eric Hobbs. As well as talking with brewer and judge Will Turner. They also were able to chat with Matt Yohe from Upland Brewing about the possibility of seeing Upland hitting the Chicago market in the future.

Overall a great festival that continues to evolve and get better every year. Hope you enjoyed seeing the coverage from the event and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
