Fremont Brewing To Release Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Stouts

With eleven years under its belt, Fremont Brewing will celebrate its 11th Anniversary with the release of two barrel-aged beers. These two beers will include Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Stout and the more limited Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Peated Stout.

Through the years Fremont Brewing has developed a following for its well-done barrel-aged beers. To celebrate eleven years of brewing this year the brew team expanded its knowledge about wood and brings forth two unique barrel-aged beers that will be released online on Thursday, August 13th. Once purchased online, bottles will be able to be picked up beginning on Saturday at the brewery.

Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Stout is an adventurous blend of stout aged in 8-10 years old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels, stout aged in 8-10 years old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels with tart Montmorency and Dark Tart cherries from Royal Ridge Fruits, and stout aged in vanilla extract barrels which previously held bourbon. Blending all three produced a sweet, complex, and creamy stout with just enough bitterness to keep everything in harmony. Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Stout comes in 22oz wax dipped bottles and a very limited number of 1.5L magnums, sold direct from the brewery.

Unique this year will also be Barrel Aged 11th Anniversary Peated Stout that’s an imperial stout aged for 15 months in Westland Peated Whiskey Barrels.
