    Your daughter must have been the little girl with the iPad or whatever, right?

    Funny, you look nothing like your avatar ;)

    That Malamute dog is crazy huge. I've seen it there once before.... it's a freaking polar bear!

    Stopped off on my way home, grabbed my bottles and a glass on draft. I'd say this years has a much hotter bourbon character right out of the gate, lots of vanilla notes and some brown sugary sweetness amid the malt character. Very good, but it's peak will come with some time.
     
  3. That wasn't me, my daughter is only ten months old. We were sitting under the window near the far end of the long table. But yeah, I clearly do not look like a Gundam.

  6. Was that you at the end of the table with the little one? I was sitting next to the Gigantic Malamute in work clothes. My buddy had his little one there also (with ipad). You gotta love kid friendly breweries!
     
  7. Yep, that was me! And yes, kid friendly breweries are great. We've been doing my birthday party at Fremont for three years now, it's a great space where my friends with kids (now including my wife and I) can still feel welcome and enjoy good beer.

    Well, last years release was the same ABV as this years (11% or so) but we had "label issues" last year and Bbomb was mislabeled as 9%...

    Love the new spot and the beer is damn tasty. I can only imagine what you could have done if you weren't so busy smoking dope and fishing.

    Not into trading that gem. Meant to be shared . . .
    Still pissed I missed podunkparte's sour bottleshare. Maybe we need something along the lines of b-bombs.

  18. The green wax ones are walez bro. Only a handful got the green wax in 2010 before they got the red wax which most were dipped in.

    Tasty, tasty green wax.
     
  20. Picked up a few bottles last night. Wish I had had time to stick around and have it on tap.
     
  21. Don't let the reviews fool you; have a glass of the sister while picking up your Bbomb. I think they honed in the recipe. Shit is bangin!

    Listen to him! I had a Sister when I picked up my bottles yesterday & was overwhelmed.

  23. My dog Rufus and I sat in the brewery midday and I had a Sister and a B-bomb plus I grabbed a growler of The Sister and my allotment of B-bomb bottles to go. Why choose between the two?
     
  24. I was the guy sitting there talking to Thor, one of the brewers. Such a small BA world.
     
  25. That wasn't you. The guy talking to Thor when I was there had all his teeth.

  28. The Sister was really nice. I think I actually prefer it over The Brother.
     
  29. I've had a bit of both of them recently and I still think I prefer The Brother --- I'm a sucker for juicy, citrusy hops.

    On a related note, I had a Walking Man Homo Erectus at Uber over the weekend and I must say that I prefer both of Fremont's DIPAs to this. I last had a Homo Erectus years ago and remembered being blown away. The aroma was great but the taste was underwhelming. Makes me not miss getting Walking Man around so much.

  30. Was at the Pub about 2 months ago. Tried about everything they had and nothing was great. Some were pretty mediocre actually.

    I was underwhelmed with Walking Man Homo Erectus myself. When in the Gorge, I much prefer Double Mountain and Everybody's Brewing

    I stopped by yesterday evening to collect my allocation and had a pint of scotch ale while at the UBG. Does Fremont make a scotch or did I order a guest tap without realizing it?

    The guest tap was something from Black Raven. Probably it.

    Ditto. I couldn't decide whether or not to have the Sister so I had someone flip a coin. I won.
