The Taproom at Firestone Walker Brewing Company
It began innocently enough: a couple of brothers-in-law sitting around debating the subject of good and bad beer. Instead, their search for a decent ale to led them to brew their own. Given Mr. Firestoneac2s winemaking bias and Mr. Walkerac2s complete lack of fermentation experience, they believed 60-gallon oak barrels were the appropriate vehicle in which to create their perfect elixir. OK, so initial attempts were forgettable. But like so many great ideas, out of that disaster was born a handy invention ac" the Firestone Union. Based on classic brewing traditions from Burton-Upon Trent, this bizarre and unlikely system of linked barrels has the ability to produce rich and complex ales. In 1996 the accidental duo shelved their endless discussion on better beers and settled for building a world-class brewery that bore their names on Californiaac2s Central Coastac|ac|the debate was now over.
One of my favorite places to drink and dine. Great beers and ales (my favorite is the unfiltered Double Barrel Ale) and the food is very tasty. I recommend the Chopped Salad, the Taproom Burger, Clam Chowder and any one of their pizzas.
