Less than 2 weeks from now, the Fremont Brewing Company will release their annual favorite - Bourbon Barrel Aged Abominable Ale.
Aged in "American Oak bourbon barrels" the beer is highly sought after by locals and those who appreciate a high alcohol beer. Weighing in 11.00% Alcohol By Volume and with an IBU of 65, people are encouraged to stop into the 'taproom' starting November 28th, from 5pm-9pm.
Fremont Brewing will be hosting a release event for 2014 Bourbon Barrel Aged Abominable on Friday, November 28th from 5-9pm in the Urban Beer Garden (1050 N 34th St). In addition to having Bourbon Abominable on tap and available for purchase in 22 ounce bottles, there will be five infusions flowing! Be sure to join the party by 7pm when a Fremont brewer will discuss the history of B-Bomb, key ingredients and statistics, the barrel aging and blending process, and how the beer changes with age.
For further encouragement, here's the details from the mouths of the brewers.
Lovingly referred to by Fremonters as B-Bomb, this year’s release was aged in 12 and 15 year old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 24 and 12-month old barrel strength Abominable Ale. Each barrel contributes a different note and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure.
2-Row Pale, Chocolate, Roast, Carafa-2, Munich, and Dark Crystal Malts with Columbus, Wilamette, and US Goldings hops.
Fremont Brewing was born of our love for our home and history as well as the desire to prove that beer made with the finest local ingredients – organic when possible --, is not the wave of the future but the doorway to beer's history. Starting a brewery in the midst of the Great Recession is clearly an act of passion. We invite you to come along with us and enjoy that passion -- because beer matters.
