Brewery Release "B-Bomb" at Fremont Brewing Company's Urban Beer Garden

Brewery Release "B-Bomb" at Fremont Brewing Company's Urban Beer Garden

  • Fremont Brewing Company's Urban Beer Garden (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

If there’s a day more dread-inspiring than Black Friday we can’t think of one. Ok, so maybe the onset of “The Rapture” might be more terrifying but there’s nothing like the images of angry shoppers, literally running over one another to purchase cheap televisions or this year’s ‘it’ toy. Which is why we are suggesting you sleep in and exchange your consumerism for a glass/bottle of Fremont Bourbon-barrel Aged Winter Ale.

Released Friday, November 24th, Fremont’s B-Bomb weighs in at 13.0% and has been described as smelling like “vanilla” and caramel while tasting with notes of “coco”, “bourbon”, and “dried fruit“. Bottles go on sale at 11 am and there’s a 2 per person limit. In addition to bottles, the brewery will have B-Bomb on draught, before showcasing three ”infused“ versions at 5 pm, with the arrival of the B-Bomb mascot, the Yeti.

Fremont Brewing Company’s B-Bomb release will be at their Urban Beer Garden, which is at 1050 N 34th Street in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.

More on Fremont B-Bomb (formerly, Bourbon Barrel-aged Abominable Ale)

This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel strength Winter Ale. B-Bomb achieves distinct bourbon, oak, cacao, leather, and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that B-Bomb will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable. 
Down & Dirty: 2-Row Pale, Crystal-120, Munich, Roast Barley, Carafa-2, and Chocolate malts with Columbus, Willamette, and US Golding hops.
ABV: 13.0%           IBU: 65
Color: Deep black
Aroma: Vanilla, wood, caramel
Flavor: Cocoa, bourbon, dried fruit
Awards: 
2016 WA Beer Awards, Wood & Barrel-Aged Strong Beer – Gold

"Crux Fermentation Project [BANISHED] Barrel-Aged Beer Night" at Toronado in Seattle

"Crux Fermentation Project [BANISHED] Barrel-Aged Beer Night" at Toronado in Seattle

6 [BANISHED] Beers on Tap including Tough Love 2017, Bourbon Barrel-Aged PCT Porter, and French Love

More on the beers

[BANISHED] TOUGH LOVE

Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
11.5% ABV, 70 IBU

Tough Love is bold but nuanced, an homage of sorts to the traditional Russian Imperial Stouts and the ruling style of Catherine the Great. We construct it with dark roasted malts, malted rye, and oak-smoked wheat, and then banish it in Kentucky bourbon barrels. The aging process smooths out the edges on an otherwise bold statement, and bitterness succumbs to tender strokes of vanilla beans, hints of dried cherries, and new layers revealing themselves with each sip.

ONE-OFF [BANISHED] BOURBON PCT PORTER

Barrel-Aged Day-In & Day-Out Porter
8.5 ABV, 30 IBU

PCT is not your typical porter...especially when you banish it to bourbon barrels for six months. The robust flavors of roasted and chocolate malts are emboldened by the vanilla, brown sugar, and oak notes picked up from the barrels.

image sourced from "Seattle Brewing: Craft, Culture, and History

Over the course of more than a century, Seattle brewers and their customers have created one of the nation's singular brewing cultures. A rich blend of resources shaped this story: the fragrant hops that grow in the surrounding region; a sense of identity rooted in geography and cuisine; and a brewing community that flourished via dedication to ideals of creativity and professional mentorship. As a result, Seattle changed the course of American brewing history while simultaneously writing its own story. 

On December 8, the American Brewing History Initiative of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History comes to Pike Place Market to lead a discussion about Seattle's brewing history. Our conversation will explore the stories and history of craft brewing in the city with a farm-to-glass approach, featuring a multi-generational panel from perspectives of craft brewing, home brewing, and agriculture. How do contemporary brewers and growers incorporate a sense of history into their work? In their view, what distinguishes the brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest? What does it mean to be an artisan, or craft, producer today, and in the future? Come listen, contribute, taste, and enjoy.

Guest Speaker Panel:
Dick Cantwell, Brewer, co-founder of Elysian Brewing Co.
Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, founders of Pike Brewing Co.
Annie Johnson, Master Brewer-in-Residence, PicoBrew
Representative from Skagit Valley Malting

Panel moderator: Theresa McCulla, Ph.D. Historian, American Brewing History Initiative

Each ticket includes: Six tastes (4 oz.) from Old Stove Brewing Co., Pike Brewing and Annie Johnson, and a plate of heavy appetizers from Chef Traci Calderon of the Atrium Kitchen at Pike Place Market.

Reverend Nat's Hard Cider presents "Stand with Old Town Brewing" at Old Town Brewing

Join me this Sunday for a pint (or two!) to show our support for a member of our Portland beer community.

The City of Portland is attempting to sell the rights to the leaping stag logo to Anheuser-Busch InBev, to market beer-not-made-in-Portland to Portlanders. The only trouble is that Old Town Brewing has an "incontestable" trademark to that logo, in conjunction with beer, as granted by the US Patent & Trademark Office, and confirmed three times over the last five years by the USPTO. The City knows they have no legal avenue to sell these rights, but they keep dumping thousands of our taxpayer dollars into their effort to defeat Old Town. The City is siding with the world's largest brewery against one of its own, choosing foreign beer over our local beer economy. 

Let's show our love for Portland beer!

Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. – Just in time for Thanksgiving, Lompoc Brewing will release its Barrel Aged Cranberry Saison, part of Lompoc’s Select Series of beers, in 500 ml bottles and on draft. The beer release will take place on Friday, Nov. 17 from 4pm to 11pm at Lompoc Sidebar, 3901 N Williams Ave.

Lompoc’s Barrel Aged Cranberry Saison is a Belgian style ale brewed with fresh cranberries and aged one year in port barrels that infused the beer with a drinkable tart and spicy flavor and subtle notes of port and oak. Pale and wheat malts keep it light, while the peppery yeast and noble hops lead to a tangy finish (5% ABV).

The release party will also offer a food special of Sage Derby Turkey Sliders, created by Lompoc chef Mark Otey specifically to pair with this beer. Featuring ground turkey, cranberry cream cheese, sage Derby cheese, arugula and a cranberry compote for some tanginess, the sliders will be available for $3.50 apiece.

Lompoc debuted its Select Series in June of this year with Barrel Aged Red on Rye. For more information, visit LompocBrewing.com and get social @LompocBeer.

About Lompoc Brewing

Lompoc (pronounced Lom-Pock) creates eight flavorful year-round beers, plus a ridiculous number of seasonals. You can find Lompoc in bottles, cans and on draft at locations throughout Oregon and Washington, and at its five Portland neighborhood pubs: Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar in North Portland, Hedge House and Oaks Bottom in Southeast, and the Lompoc Tavern in Northwest. Proudly brewed in #LompocOregon, a state of mind.

Rare Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný at Queen Anne Beerhall

credit Colin Bishop

Queen Anne Beerhall is one of only a handful of locations that were able to secure this beer. So you don't want to miss your chance to try this.

Press Release

Seattle, Wash., November 6, 2017 – The Queen Anne Beerhall announces the arrival of 5 out of the 8 kegs of the rare unpasteurized, unfiltered Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný, express shipped directly the Czech Republic to Washington state.

Coming November 16, the Queen Anne Beerhall celebrates the latest keg delivery by hosting a special showing of the documentary “Brewmaster” by filmmaker Douglas Tirola. Additionally, the availability of the Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný coincides with the 175th anniversary of Pilsner Urquell.

The unpasteurized and unfiltered beer is a unicorn among the beer community. This beer in particular rarely makes it out of Europe.

With a 99% rating on ratebeer.com, the Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný is sure to delight even novice beer enthusiasts. The beer itself is rich and crisp with subtle hop bitterness. Medium-light in body, this complex beer is greatly sought after for its satisfying mouthfeel and uniquely Czech flavor. This beer is the closest you will get to enjoying a fresh pilsner in Plzen, Czech Republic.

Enjoy it while supplies last, starting November 16th!

"Bellingham Tap Takeover" at Peaks and Pints

Watching Bellingham, Washington’s beer scene progress during the last few years has been amazing. To go from one brewery to at least a dozen and counting in the last few years is nothing short of impressive. And now, seeing brewers testing the boundaries of traditional palates, breweries engaging the community in all sorts of events and activities, farm to pint initiatives and bringing culinary pairings into the mix — these are all ways in which the Whatcom County breweries and craft brew scene continues to kick butt.

Peaks and Pints hosts seven Bellingham breweries at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16 in what the cool kids call a “tap takeover.” From the original, 1995 Boundary Bay Brewing to the newbie — at least to Bellingham — Melvin Brewing, three craft beers from each brewery will pour from our Western red cedar tap log. There’s talk of a tabletop hockey tournament and swag o’plenty. Stay tuned for a taplist from Aslan Brewing, Boundary Bay Brewing, Chuckanut Brewery, Kulshan Brewing, Melvin Brewing, Stones Throw Brewery and Wander Brewing.

Release Party with Crux Fermentation Tough Love 2017 at Growler Guys in Seattle

4 Beers on Tap including Tough Love 2017 and Wild Farmhouse Sour Ale

More on the beer

[BANISHED] TOUGH LOVE

Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
11.5% ABV, 70 IBU

Tough Love is bold but nuanced, an homage of sorts to the traditional Russian Imperial Stouts and the ruling style of Catherine the Great. We construct it with dark roasted malts, malted rye, and oak-smoked wheat, and then banish it in Kentucky bourbon barrels. The aging process smooths out the edges on an otherwise bold statement, and bitterness succumbs to tender strokes of vanilla beans, hints of dried cherries, and new layers revealing themselves with each sip.
