    Double Jack and Wookey Jack are my two favorite FW beers and were staples for me as I got into craft beer. So I am sorry to see them go, although it sounds like they’ll be brewing new double IPAs, black IPAs, and other cool stuff. Unfortunately, I rarely drink FW beers these days because they have a freshness problem. Maybe the problem lies more with low sales, but I routinely find Double Jack on the shelves of my local stores that is more than six months old, and I’ve even seen bottles over a year old! If I could find fresh Double Jack or Wookey Jack I’d buy it in a heartbeat but it seems all I can find is outdated product. I know I can blame this on my local stores who don’t rotate out old product, but FW itself must find a way to make sure their freshest product is on the shelves. And I live in California so there should be no reason I can’t find fresh FW beers!
