What: Firestone Walker XVI Anniversary Ale Release
When November 3, 2012
Where: Firestone Walker Brewing Company
Paso Robles, CA

Enthusiastic craft beer lovers flocked to Firestone Walker’s newly built brewhouse to celebrate the release of their coveted annual anniversary ale. Guests enjoyed beer samples, live music, purchased Firestone Walker XVI Anniversary Ale and competed in a cornhole tournament against the brewers. The team that won the cornhole tournament has previously beaten the brewer’s team and head brewer Dustin Krall has vowed to beat them next year.

Firestone Walker brewers teamed up with some of the region’s top winemakers to create the XVI Anniversary Ale blend. Chosen for their innate blending abilities, they would help blend, taste and throw friendly jabs as they attempted to create the unique anniversary ale. In the end, one blend was left standing.
