Beer Review: Fremont Brewing Co. Seattle Beer Week 5th Anniversary Organic Pale Ale

Photo doesn't do it justice, but the can design for this beer is top notch
Style: American Pale Ale
ABV: 4.5%

Fun Fact About the Brewery:

Fremont Brewing rules, okay? Y'all already know that. I love 'em, you love 'em, and one day the whole world might love 'em. Until then, I dare say they are Seattle's best kept secret in craft beer. This year they were tapped (lol beer puns!) to create the official beer for the 5th annual Seattle Beer Week, which starts May 9th. Go here to see all the events.


Instead of creating some high ABV beast or crazy experimental concoction, they went the gentler route of creating a fantastic and sessionable organic pale ale. It's perfect for the oncoming warmer weather. As you'd expect from Fremont, it's pretty hop-forward for a pale ale and with just a touch of astringent aftertaste. They used my two favorite hops, Citra and Simcoe, so there's some citrus and piney flavors and smells in the mix. It's a limited release, so grab a six-pack while you can. As noted above, Fremont continues their streak of really nice artwork and branding on the cans.

Rating: 4.25/5
