Firestone Walker Tapping at Front Range BBQ
Join us for our next tapping party! The evening of April 16th we will be featuring beers from Firestone Walker Brewing Co.!
“Firestone Walker Brewing Company brewed its first beer in 1996 in a small facility rented from the Firestone Vineyard estate in Santa Barbara County. In 2001 owners Adam Firestone and David Walker purchased the SLO Brewing Company located in Paso Robles, CA.
Firestone Walker’s ales are selectively fermented in the Firestone Union oak barrel brewing system. The Firestone Union incorporates 65-gallon, medium and heavy toast American oak barrels.
Firestone Walker Brewing Company continues to grow as the palates of Americans migrate to craft beer. Our brew staff have picked up “Mid Size Brewery of the Year” at the World Beer Cup an unmatched four times.”
We will be featuring the following beers:
Pivo Hoppy Pilsner
– As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.
–Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish.
Parabola Russian Imperial Stout
– Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish.
Beers will be tapped by 6PM
Pairing 4 homemade course with 4 handcrafted beers from Paradox Brewing Co. Tickets must be purchased in advanced at 503W $35 per person. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve tickets (please include: name, #people in party and phone #, tickets will be sent via email). We look forward to having you! Thank you.
