About This Beer
When Fremont released Brew 5000 on April 1st, 2021, it sold out online in less than 5 minutes. Craft fans who didn’t jump on it quickly enough actually took to the brewery’s social media to ask if there really was a beer release, or if it was just an April Fool’s prank.
But, trust us — this brew is no joke. The Fremont crew created this enviable English Barleywine to celebrate their 5,000th batch of beer, so naturally, they pulled out all the stops.
Each sip courses with deep flavors of brown sugar, candied date, and toffee. Notes of raisin and plum appear next, followed quickly by a warming flood of caramelly whiskey and oaky vanilla from a full 16 months in Bourbon barrels.
