Other beers include Universale Pale Ale; seasonal single-hop, single grain favorite, Summer Ale; Bourbon Abominable (“BBomb”); Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star; Rusty Nail, a bourbon barrel aged beer brewed with licorice and aged on cinnamon bark before resting in 15-year old barrels for 15 months; and finally Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop Ale, featuring Fremont’s exclusive Cowiche Canyon Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic hops. Their beers have won numerous awards such as 2 Silver medals in the 2014 Great American Beer Festival; the Gold medal in the 2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards; Bronze medals in the 2012 World Beer Cup and the 2015 Festival of Barrel Aged Beers (FoBAB); and Rate Beer’s 2015 Best Strong Ale in the World, 2015 Best Beer in Washington, and 2014 Top 100 Brewers in the World.
In addition to its reputation for consistent quality and innovation, Fremont Brewing is a recognized leader in sustainable brewing operations and community engagement. They give generously to non-profit organizations, promote the organic hop and local grain markets, and reduce their carbon footprint through conservation and green technologies. It is for these and many other initiatives that they won Washington’s Manufacturer of the Year Award in 2015 and King County’s Best Small Business Award in 2014.
“Idaho is like family to us,” said Matt Lincecum, Fremont Brewing’s Founder and Owner. “How can you say no when your family wants beer? So, we’re excited to share our beer with our brothers and sisters from another mother in the great State of Mind, Idaho!”

I’m a big fan of Fremont Brewing Company beers myself. My cellar has several Fremont bottles including their extremely popular Bourbon Abominable (B-Bomb), Bourbon Barrel Aged (Kentucky) Dark Star and their variants. Their Interurban IPA is always a great choice and for Fresh Hop fans, Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop is definitely near the top of my list. Idaho craft beer fans are in for something special come Monday.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
