Fremont brewing: old bridge rider (bourbon barrel aged west coast barleywine)
ok, so I hate barrel aged beers. ITS GROSS!!!!!
cuz of such, my wife’s drunken review ( I gave it to her, plus it’s 12% abv and she’s a lightweight )
ok, um… ok I thought of it last night… um… first thing u get is the sweetness, it’s the mainthing like the stickiness of the a countertop from 1976 — like old honey. it’s got body, I definitely enjoyed it.
I don’t often post my homebrew bullshit, but this one is the most expensive beer I’ve ever made. 10oz of dry hop alone!!! Fuuuuuuu. there was over a gallon of trub loss, making this $110 for a little less than four gallons. the problem is it TASTES AMAZING. well duh, add enough simcoe and amarillo hops, any hardcore hop head would be happy.
Fremont: Cowiche Canyon fresh hop
THE BEST FRESH HOP ALE EVER MADE
really sorry for those of you outside of the Seattle area who will never get to try this.
double mountain: killer green
it IS fresh hop season!!!! even doge likes the harvest.
imma try to guess the hops cuz they don’t list them:
northern brewer, willamette, centennial
WAS I RIGHT?!
Fremont Brewing’s American style barleywine brewed for Seattle’s 5th beer week.
I was going to age it some more, but I really hate aging hoppy beers (this is more like a triple IPA) and two months is enough.
Two Beers (Alta Series) High Divide Double Blonde
i was only allowed one of these, ever. i mean, no more for me, JUST ONE. its hand numbered by joel (mr two beers) 890 out of 1000. also, it was expensive.
so instead of saving it, i drank it as soon as it was cold…. and my god, its the best blonde, double blonde, two blondes on me, blonde on blonde, blondes on redheads…… i’ve ever had! ITS GOOD!! top 6 beers all time, easy.
TOP SIX (why six, why your face?!?)
carb was low to medium low, thats kinda nice. they say this is for the hot of summer, but it tastes like the sadness of winter where you wish it was summer (in a good way)
it was aged in white wine barrels for four months and also brewed with fresh local peaches and cherries. you can taste the barrel aging, but the fruit adds more of a sharpness than actual “FRUIT STRIPE GUM FLAVOR” (thank god)
lastly, im sorry that most to all of you (including me) will never have this again. ITS REALLY FUCKING GOOD
