Episode 259: Modern Times Beer Rampart Junction & Palace of Cracked Heads

Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world. In this weeks episode, Brad and Ken are joined by a special guest who you’ve probably seen before, Sergio Salgado. Sergio joins the guys and brings along with him a couple beers from Modern Times. The first one they open up is the Palace of Cracked Heads a 9% ABV Wild Ale.  This beer is a Red wine barrel-aged nectarine Sour. After 11 months in Red wine barrels, they added 50 lbs per barrel of fresh, organic, heirloom nectarines, which spent 5 months in the barrels before bottling. Next the three of them dive into the Rampart Junction. Rampart Junction is Modern Times Red wine barrel-aged peach sour. Again after 11 months in Red wine barrels, they added 50 lbs per barrel of fresh, organic, heirloom peaches, which spent 5 months in the barrels before bottling.

Damn! These were some great beers and it’s sad we can’t get Modern Times beer here in Chicago.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
