Episode#214: Three From Two Brothers
In this episode from the crypt, Dan and his dad sample some beers from Chicago-area brewer Two Brothers at the Old LOT Compound.
Two Brothers Ebel’s Weiss (0:46)
Their year-round German hefeweizen is unfiltered and weighs in 4.9% ABV with 12 IBUs.
Notes: Hazy and yellow in color, banana and clove on the nose. Balanced with a creamy mouthfeel, this is a perfect summer beer with lighter dishes.
Two Brothers Dog Days (3:12)
Their seasonal Dortmunder lager weighs in 5.1% ABV with 27 IBUs.
Notes: Clear, pale yellow, with bigger bubble carbonation and biscuity presence on the nose. Dry, with a hint of smoke on the mid-palate, this one is crisp, clear and sessionable and should be had with hot dogs at a ball game.
Two Brothers Domaine du Page (5:28)
Their award-winning flagship beer, this year-round amber (French Country Ale), weighs in 5.9% ABV with 24 IBUs.
Notes: Brilliant amber in color, with nice lacing on the glass. Malt-forward, sweet and a little bready. Very accessible but complex and would be extremely food-friendly.
All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
