Has your palate grown weary under the weight of all those big, malty, complex winter beers? Ya, I didn’t think so. This time of year we blanket ourselves in big, boozy beers and let the warmth of their considerable ABV help us fight seasonal affective disorder. It’s a Seattle thing. Still, a little variety is always welcome.
On Monday, December 29th, Fremont Brewing Company releases something quite different than the typical flurry of winter beers released this time of year: 77 Select Session IPA.
This polite offering comes from a brewery notorious for producing one of the biggest, most bodacious of all winter beers, Abominable Ale. Not to mention its rowdy, hillbilly cousin, Bourbon Barrel Abominable (aka B-Bomb). I recently did a vertical tasting of the last few vintages of B-Bomb. After running through that beautiful brick wall, a nice refreshing session IPA sure would have hit the spot.
Join Fremont Brewing at the Urban Beer Garden on Monday, December 29th from 5:00 – 9:00 for the official 77 Select release event. The evening’s beers include five different infused version of the 77 Select. At 7:00, Fremont Brewing’s Head Brewer, James McDermet, will lead an educational discussion about the beer and be available for questions.
