Fremont Brewing Like List
It's an annual tradition for Fremont Brewing to debut their coveted "B-Bomb" (a bourbon barrel-aged imperial winter ale) on Black Friday each year. This year, bottles will go on sale at the brewery beginning at 11 am.
Postdoc Brewing Like List
Get your hands on a bottle of Postdoc's 2023 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Demon Star, a "thick, rich, and powerful" imperial stout with "aromas of dark fruits, espresso, and burnt oak rose" and "bourbon, vanilla, and dark caramel flavors," which will be released at the brewery the day after Black Friday. Three other variants will also be available on tap that day: 2022 Bourbon Demon Star, 8-Year Barrel Demon Star, and, perhaps most excitingly, the brand new Black Forest Cake Demon Star (which was brewed with actual cake from the pop-up Craft Beer Bakery).
