For episode 55 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are joined by Brad Stark. Brad Stark was kind enough to bring a couple beers from his recent beercation to share with Ken and Brad. It's wonderful when people come on the show to share great craft beer they have discovered. Both of the beers Brad Stark brought on are from the brewery Middle Ages out in Syracuse, New York. The first beer they sample and review is the Druid Fluid. The Druid Fluid is a barleywine coming in at 9.5 %. After this heavey hitter they move onto the Dragonslayer. The Dragonslayer is a another high alcohol beer, this russian imperial stout also comes in at 9.5 % ABV. The Hop Cast would like to thank Brad Stark for sharing a couple great beers with them from a brewery they hadn't heard of before. If you are in the Syracuse, New York area be sure to check out what Middle Ages is doing, they have been rocking it for over 14 years.
