Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee (2016) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad. A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco. Read More »

Firestone Walker/Alexander Murray Pollys Cask Scotch (Double DBA Barrel Aged) | BGN Reviews

Alexander Murray & Co are proud to announce our first collaboration with Firestone Walker Brewing Co, thus being, Polly’s Casks, an extraordinary Limited Edition Scotch whisky. On a balmy California evening, Alexander Murray founder Steve Lipp was enjoying a typically noisy dinner with David Walker and Polly Firestone Walker of the Central Coast brewery when the conversation turned to rare whiskies and craft beer.

The question deserved an answer, so 60 barrels were shipped across the Atlantic from Firestone ... Read More »
