Firestone Walker Brewing Company

Founded by brothers-in-law Adam Firestone and David Walker in 1996, Firestone Walker Brewing Company is an innovative California beer company with three state-of-the-art brewing.

Firestone Walker’s main brewery in Paso Robles produces a diverse portfolio ranging from iconic pale ales to vintage barrel-aged beers. The Barrelworks facility in Buellton makes eccentric wild ales, while the Propagator pilot brewhouse in Venice specializes in R&D beers and limited local offerings.

Firestone Walker is also the brewery behind 805, one of the nation’s fastest-growing beers. Firestone Walker was recently named “Best American Brewery of the Decade” by Paste Magazine.

In 2015, we combined with another family-owned brewery, Duvel Moortgat, to help pave the way for our next 20 years and beyond. With deep roots in the Central Coast, we employ numerous sustainable practices that reflect our commitment to the local community and landscape.

The Barrelworks Tasting Room

The Barrelworks Tasting Room and Blending Center features beers from our wild ale program as well as one-off selections from our barrel-aging spirits program. Single barrel and small-batch brews are limited in quantity and available only while supplies last. Information on specific beers can be found at The Barrelworks tasting room.

Consider for a moment that for decades, brewers and breweries have been indoctrinated in the ways of good sanitation, cleanliness, pure strains of yeast. In an essence: Stay the hell away from anything wild! This obsession leads to the use of pedigree strains of yeast and extreme avoidance of wild yeast and bacteria, deemed undesirable… the Wild Beer program turns this doctrine on its head. Firestone Walker’s next chapter in barrel fermenting and aging willfully and enthusiastically includes adding these wild “critters” to beer, producing a range of strange, interesting, wonderful, pleasing and refreshing characters.

The Propagator

The Propagator is more than an extension of our other brewing operations — it is a wellspring of ideas, flavors and beers that are unique to, and inspired by, our Venice neighborhood.

The centerpiece of the Propagator is a state-of-the-art small scale Kaspar Schulz brewhouse from Germany. This pilot brewhouse is a platform for brewing experimental beers that set the pace for what is next from Firestone Walker. It also serves as a working neighborhood brewery to produce unique one-off beers available solely at the Venice location.
