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.
