Enjoy the full line up of Paso Robles-based Firestone Walker Brewing Company beers at The Molly Brown beginning Tuesday, April 19th. Funny How Brothers…settle things the old fashioned way.
Try brothers-in law. Who own a brewery together. Adam “The Bear” Firestone grew up on the Central Coast surrounded by vineyards and winemaking. Adam’s gravitation towards brewing started at an early age. The brewing ideas all launched in converted wine making equipment–mostly with mixed results. But the hook was set when the first recipe for Double Barrel Ale was attempted. All that was needed to take this idea beyond a pipe dream was a partner. Many were approached with the idea but none were interested. That is until he persuaded one lone Englishman who happened to be married to his sister. Adam and David may battle, epically at times, but at least neither ever forgets it’s for the epic love of beer. David “The Lion” Walker is a British expatriate and Adam’s brother-in-law who brought a European twist to the proceedings.
Together, they soon dreamed of building an unparalleled regional brewery, one that combined the authenticity of Old World craft with the innovative spirit of California. Matt Brynildson, the brewmaster, is excited about advancing the company’s celebrated commitment to quality and innovation. “Our brewery is a cutting-edge facility, right down to the bottling line,” he says. “This is enabling me to take Firestone Walker beers to the next level.”
