This week we conclude our profile podcast of Barrel of Monks Brewing from Boca Raton FL., and it’s a tasting session with VP of Operations, Kevin Abbott. Held up at Church Street Brewing following a collaboration brew day, head CSB brewer Chuck Fort and owner, Lisa Gregor, join Phil ‘The Brit’ Clark to sample some brews that Kevin brought with him on his trip up to Illinois.
There’s more conversation on Belgium beers styles as Kevin discusses topics like esters and phenolics, and the use of different yeast strains for each type of beer, plus how they brewed a beer with Tampa Bay’s good ol’ #99, Warren Sapp. Kevin left samples of the brew and asked we share with some of the breweries we visited while he was here, so there is a bonus review of #99 from Eric Bramwell over at Riverlands Brewing!
If you are headed to Florida we highly recommend a visit to their brewery, and tell them, The Brit and Yankee podcast sent you!
