    I bought a bottle of Fred (batch 90) for the purpose of cellaring it. I’d like it to smooth out a bit, but also maintain a good amount of its hop character. Any recommendations on a date to open this bad boy?

    Probably 2 - 4 years will do you fine. Fred can be drank at pretty much any age - I had a 13 year old Fred recently and loved it. I think it's best quite old personally - lots of red fruit and the body becomes almost syrupy.
