    • Hop Cast - Yelp Summerfest (Mobile Special)

      This past Friday was the 2009 Yelp Summerfest at the Irish American Heritage Center in Irving Park. Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder made it out to the event to represent the Hop Cast and to enjoy some of the free food and beer. Some of the breweries at the event were Metropolitan, Goose Island, Half Acre, Two Brothers, Harpoon and Magic Hat. Since there were going to be a few local breweries at the event Brad and Ken figured this was a chance to do a few interviews with some more people. When Brad and Ken first got there the first beer they went for was the Metropolitan Flywheel, it seemed like a perfect refreshing way to start of the evening. The plan was to interview a few brewers and see what was happening in the craft beer world. But unfortunately everyone who was pouring the beer was extremely busy all night and didn't have a chance to talk with the Hop Cast. With 900 + people at the event there were just too many thirsty people. But Brad and Ken did run into Courtney Baldy who is the pastry chef at Three Floyds. Courtney gave a little insight into her love of desert and beer and the kind of things she is doing at Three Floyds. Over all the Yelp event was great. The beers were excellent, especially the Metropolitan Flywheel and the Half Acre Daisy Cutter. There could of been more food since they did almost ran out of pizza at one point. If you have a chance to make it to one of the yelp events do it!

            Less than 24 hours after the Half Acre Tap Room opened, we were there. It was Saturday and we opened the place at 11:00 a.m. The crew at Half Acre couldn't have been friendlier. We played games under the watchful guardian, Sticky Fats, and loved every second of it. We'll be back. Often.

The beer, Horizon, is a wheat beer brewed with hibiscus, mangosteen, and pomegranate juice. Chris discusses the growing trend of beers being brewed especially for fine dining restaurants. He also forgets the name of his own wife - most likely because he was so excited to try Horizon.
