In episode 211 of the Hop Cast, Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are kickin it outside, sipping on a couple big IPAs and enjoying the Chicago summer. The first beer they open is the Gigantic IPA from Gigantic Brewing Company. Gigantic Brewing is from Oregon and just started distributing to Chicago. The Gigantic IPA is a 7.3 % ABV American IPA and even though its a gigantic IPA, this one is easy drinking. Next up is the Bitter Biker from Spiteful Brewing, one of the newest nanobreweries to hit the Chicago scene. Stepping it up from the single IPA, the Bitter Biker is a double that's packing a 9.6 % ABV. Watch out! You might not want to bike right after if you take this 22 oz bomber down by yourself. Summer and IPAs, what a great combination.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
