Bottle releases have become a pretty big deal in the Seattle area. It feels like just about every other weekend, there’s a new release (or several) coming out at one local craft brewery or another. Fremont Brewing Company has definitely had their share of sought after releases, including their recent release of The Ancient One series (Dark Star & B-Bomb versions). I heard the line for those bottles started as early as 4:30 am.
Your possible adverse feelings about standing in line for a beer release notwithstanding, the time has come to let you know that Fremont Brewing will be releasing the 2016 Version of B-Bomb in just over one week on “B-Bomb Friday”, November 25th.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Fremont Brewing Company. After a successful Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star release on October 1st and their launch in Oregon State just 2 days ago, Fremont is ready to release their 2015 Vintage Bourbon Barrel Aged Abominable Ale – more commonly known as B-Bomb.
This rich, intense, caramelly, fruity, bourbony, vanilla-ish stout is one of my annual favorites and, now that I think about it, one of my very favorite bourbon barrel aged beers period. In fact, my own personal craft cellar has a rather high preponderance of B-Bomb (and Darkstar) bottles in different varieties. Last year’s Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb variant was one of my absolute favorites. I covet the few bottles I have left and save them for special occasions.
