    Anyone else make it down to the brewery for this? They've blown their kegs, but there are still a few 22 oz. bottles down at the brewery for sale ($4.75). Really tasty, pretty similar in profile to the Cowiche Canyon fresh hop they do in the Fall.

    Do you know how many bottles are left? I might be heading that way in a bit.

    I hope this makes it to stores. Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop was a real highlight from last fall, loved that beer.

    It looked like about 10 bottles in the fridge when I stopped in around 4:30, but they may also have more stock not put in the fridge? I took 2.

    They also had on casks of Coffee Kentucky Dark Star (bourbon barrel aged Dark Star w/ cold press coffee added) and Winey Brother (red wine barrel aged Brother) this afternoon. They were still flowing when I stopped in.

    There are plans for wax-capped 22's of it at some point. Probably minus the cold-pressed coffee. The cask when I was there yesterday was Interurban IPA with fennel and sour cherries. Really nice.

    Also, there are prototype cans in the office window above the tasting room.

    I work with a girl who has a second job at fremont....I'm going to ask her about all this tomorrow when I see her. I hope they do make those wax capped 22's you're talking about, just like B Bomb right?

    I remember reading a comment on Fremont's Facebook page saying a first quarter 2012 release back before December's B-Bomb release, but it's looking like it will be later than that. I asked the guy pouring today when they planned on releasing bottles and he said something along the lines of that they hoped to release it sometime but there were no immediate or concrete release plans right now. Hopefully bottles will still surface sooner rather than later.

    The Cowiche is really good - i've blown through 2 bombers and have 2 more in the fridge. Saw a minimal amount at bottleworks, but stocked up at the brewery

    I didn't end up going over to Fremont today, do you guys think I'll be able to find any of this around town this week?

    It's not as good as the fresh hop Cowiche, but it's still an incredible beer. Fremont is really underrated.
