In the fall of 2006, Brewmaster Matt Brynildson asked a handful of his winemaker friends for their input on blending a diverse stash of barrel-aged strong ales. Together, they came up with “10” – a trailblazing beer commemorating out 10th anniversary. And so began an annual autumn rite that now continues into our 25th year.
This year was different, however. When our brewers convened with their winemaker friends on July 15, 2021, it marked a return to in-person blending after conducting it all remotely the previous year. The significance of this moment was not lost on anyone, and it was made all the more special by the occasion of our 25th anniversary.
The beer you are holding in your hands – 25 – was created on that day. It is a work of talent and togetherness that we are now priviledged to share with you. Thank you for being a part of out journey as we conclude this milestone year for Firestone Walker.
Enjoy this beer now, or cellar in a cool, dark place between 45°F and 55°F. Allow it to warm up in the glass when serving.
