(Seattle, WA) – We’re excited to celebrate the release of this year’s B-Bomb, our annual bourbon barrel-aged winter ale! B-Bomb, formerly known as Bourbon Abominable, will be released in our Urban Beer Garden on “B-Bomb Friday”, November 24th. B-Bomb will be on-tap and available to-go in 22oz bottles at 11am. At 5pm, the legendary Yeti will join the party to help us tap three release-party-only B-Bomb infusions!
B-Bomb bottles are $20 each with a four bottle limit per person.
This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel strength Winter Ale. B-Bomb achieves distinct bourbon, oak, cacao, leather, and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that B-Bomb will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.
