The Sister Imperial IPA

The Sister is the most imperious of our Imperial Series and is inspired by our desire to thank Sisters everywhere.

This Sister is fittingly bitter and a little sweet but she will always be there for you…Because Sisters Matter. “Never Let An Angry Sister Comb Your Hair.”  –  VWP

The Brother was the first beer we developed in our Imperial Series and is inspired by our desire to thank Brothers everywhere.

This Brother is appropriately big, intimidating, and unbalanced with unrestrained quantities of hops for a head slap of beery ferociousness. Go ahead, Hook a Brother Up...Because Brothers Matter!

Sour Weisse

Sour Weisse is the 3rd release of the Fremont Fermentation Lab, a project Fremont Brewing created to brew unique small-batch artisan beers.

It's like a lactobacillus playground (until we kill them during the boiling process). This all-natural process lowers the pH of the wort giving it a pleasant tartness. We then ferment out any residual sugars with our house yeast so the beer finishes dry and delicious ... just like you :)
