A Note on This Beer
This time of year, the brewers at Fremont are preparing for their annual B-Bomb drop — they’re busier than the elves in Santa’s workshop!
Craft fans across the country have been dreaming whiskey-soaked gumdrop dreams of this bourbon barrel-aged treasure all year long.
And, when that magical release day comes, they’ll snatch up as many bottles as possible for their own enjoyment, and to keep as valuable trade bait, just like they always do.
It’s no wonder why Paste Magazine credits these hype-worthy brews for earning Fremont a place in the Top 3 Breweries of the Decade!
Since you’ve been so good this year, we’re bringing you something truly special: a highly-rated, highly-coveted bottle of 2017 Vintage of B-Bomb, along with its flavor-packed Coffee Cinnamon variant!
This is your chance to unwrap some serious Dark Beer bliss this holiday season. Or, to give the Barrel-Aged beer fans in your life a gift that puts all the others to shame! Here’s what you (and your loved ones) have to look forward to:
2017 B-Bomb - 13% ABV
Aged in 12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and cellared away for an extra 3 years, the masterfully crafted flavors in this vintage are smoother and more complex than ever before. Fremont made it by blending 9, 12, and 24-month old Winter Ales for layers of caramelly bourbon, woody vanilla, and toasted oak.
Every sip of 2017 B-Bomb is so rich in whiskey wonder, don’t be surprised if grandma skips her special eggnog for sips from your bottle. Notes of rich, dark chocolate, candied figs, tannic leather, and roasted espresso swim in a body as thick and plush as Santa’s beard.
Oak-aged depth and heightened nuances of bourbon-soaked chicory root make this Sip Northwest Double Gold medal-winning vintage a must-have for Tavour members this holiday season.
*2017 Vintage rated 4.63 on Tavour; 4.38 on Untappd
2017 Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb - 13% ABV
With even fewer bottles in existence than the original variant, not even the jolly red fat man could get his gloved grubbers on this spiced B-Bomb. But, lucky craft lovers who have tasted it give Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb a whopping 100/100 score on BeerAdvocate, making it the #2 American Strong Ale in the World!
Sipping this 2017 vintage is like biting into a slice of tiramisu you stashed away to enjoy after Aunt Carol and her fruit cake have left. Warming notes of raw cinnamon, dark chocolate, and French roast coffee swirl across the palate, with underlying hints of toasted almond and sweet mascarpone. And, it’s all wrapped up in a subdued, bourbony 13% ABV.
This brew is so tasty, we understand if you want to unwrap it immediately. But, if you find the patience, consider waiting till after the yuletide season is over for a heightened woodiness and an even smoother depth of flavor.

*We’ve done our best to procure as many bottles as Fremont was willing to part with, but we apologize in advance for not being able to accommodate everyone. Check back for upcoming holiday treats!
