    If anyone is coming up for April Brewsday tomorrow, there still are some around the 'Ham. $17-18 before tax.

    Speaking of Fremont, Interurban IPA used to score at least a 90 on BA. Now it's down to an 86.

    I remember it was a 90 because I would use it as extras because it was one of the few "exceptional" WA only beers available to me.

    Since I'm totally lame and spent my afternoon working and then going to the grocery store instead of standing in line for what is probably an epic Sour Fest at Brouwer's... I just thought I'd let everyone know that they've apparently restocked B-Bomb @ the Northgate QFC. They had at least five bottles out. Anyone in the greater Seattle area who has not been able to get this beer, you do not have my pity. Cheers!

    Amazing. In a little over a year, 69 other beers got worse.

    Last year's version was better.

    Just wait a bit longer and it won't be cool anymore.

    I've never actually tried it, I was just using the tired trope that "last year's was better" to explain how 69 other beers got worse. :slight_smile:

    Dammit. Looks like a need to create a few more phantom bad reviews...

    It's not rare, so I've never sought it out. :wink:

    With the BAFL Fremont is brewing now lets hope finding them around town becomes the norm.

    I still haven't tried Bbomb. :slight_frown: I will work diligently to correct that egregious oversight this year.

    I would be more than happy to remedy this...as I have a plethora and cannot get drink or shed them. No one outside of PNW recognizes the value of this extremely rare and delicous WA beer...

    Weird, divey place to have such a fancy beer on tap, BUT I LIKE IT. Would make pinball x100 more fun.

    Yeah, and the regulars didn't know how to approach it! Sadly the keg has been emptied.

    Coming out from Iowa the second week of November, any chance of finding this or KDS bottles around?

    There might be some KDS hanging around at some of the more obscure places as there were more bottles this year. You might get lucky and hit the release of BBOMB, first part of Nov and more bottles of that too. Your odds are good!

    Looks like you'll miss the release for 2014, but you can still find 2013 in some places around town. And you should be able to get KDS at the brewery.

    Thanks! I hope I can find at least a bottle of each. I hear you guys have some hidden gems out that way!

    Huh. Answer me this question. What lying, no-good, snake-belly, puppy-hating, Coors drinking, anti-corn farming, pork hating, non-Pella window having, vegan told you this? That person is not your friend. Our beer is all old, common, and boring. Move along now.
