The Brewery

Established in a modest shed amidst a family vineyard, Firestone Walker was brought to life by two determined brothers-in-law, Adam Firestone and David Walker, with an ambitious goal to brew the quintessential beer​​. Over the course of a quarter of a century, starting in 1996, the company has seen remarkable growth, relocating to Paso Robles in 2001 and gaining the expertise of world-class brewmaster Matt Brynildson, affectionately known as "Merlin"​. With their home state of California at the heart of their identity and the phrase "Beer Before Glory" as their guiding principle, Firestone Walker persistently pursues the elusive ideal in beer, drawing inspiration from their local communities and ensuring their beers resonate with the innovative spirit of California.
