Fremont Brewing announces release party for B-Bomb 2016
November 17, 2016 - 11:13 AM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
Fremont Brewing just announced the release date for this year's B-Bomb, the bourbon barrel aged version of the beer formerly known as Abominable. B-Bomb Friday is set for November 25th, the day that many retailers refer to as Black Friday.
We do not want this to get ugly. Just say NO to Hunahpu's Day. Go enjoy some B-Bomb, but everyone remain calm. There's enough beer to go around. Remember, there's a fine line between being a beer geek and being a beer jerk. The beer will go out for distribution after the release event.
Here's the word:
"Fremont is excited to announce this year’s release of B-Bomb, their annual bourbon barrel-aged winter ale! B-Bomb, formerly known as Bourbon Abominable, will be released in their Urban Beer Garden on “B-Bomb Friday”, November 25th! B-Bomb will be on-tap and available to-go in 22oz bottles at 11am. At 5pm, the legendary Yeti will join the party to help Fremont tap three release-party-only B-Bomb infusions! B-Bomb bottles are $20 each with a four bottle limit per person."
"Distribution will follow after the event and will include Fremont’s entire network of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and the Denver Metro Area."
Style: Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Ale
Description: This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12 & 15 year-old American Oak whiskey barrels and is a blend of 24 and 12-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.
