Barrel Junction prefunction at The Beer Junction tonight, with Fremont Brewing


Fremont Brewing tasting event tonight at The Beer Junction

I don’t often report on weekly events. You know, like the weekly tasting events they host every Thursday at The Beer Junction, but I think this one warrants some special attention.

Barrel Junction, the annual celebration of barrel-aged beers at The Beer Junction, kicks off this Saturday, January 25th. But first, and as if that event isn’t kickass enough on its own, this Thursday, January 23rd The Beer Junction hosts a Fremont Brewing┬átap take over, featuring an impressive lineup of 13 beers on tap, including some barrel-aged masterpieces. See the list below.

For my money, Fremont Brewing does just about as good a job with its barrel program of any brewery in the nation. Maybe I am biased, but I think a lot of people would agree with me. So what better way to prefunction for Barrel Junction than by sampling some topnotch barrel-aged beers.

Here is the announcement from The Beer Junction Facebook page:

Prepare yourself- the Barrels are coming! Between our Fremont event this Thursday night and Barrel Junction (starting Saturday 1/25) you’ll have a chance to try more than 40 different barrel-aged beers and ciders over the next week and a half! Find lineups on both events further below!

This Thursday (1/23; 6-8PM) join us for a night of 8 barrel-aged beers from Fremont Brewing! The beers will be on tap when we open at 11AM Thursday and Kyle Osterhaus from the brewery will be hanging out and answering your questions from 6-8PM.
