Firestone Walker’s Brewmaster Matt Brynildson likes to push the boundaries of beer and this year’s 15th Anniversary Ale will be no exception. XV will be a complex, but balanced ale that is a combonation of eight beers that is the result of blending sessions with a group of Paso Robles winemakers.
Previous Anniversary releases have also been higher alcohol brews that are able to be aged for years. They are more like wine, than beer. This year’s release, XV, will go on sale on November 5, 2011 at Firestone Walker in Paso Robles, CA. Instead of having a bottle limit, those who purchase 3 or more bottles will be able to attend the 15th Anniversary Party at teh brewery for complimentary beer samples, food pairings, music, etc.
It will be available in 22oz bottles across the country, in all markets that carry Firestone Walker, later this fall and on draft in select locations.
