Kiel and I had the privilege of visiting Firestone Walker this past weekend for their annual invitational beer festival. I also greatly anticipated visiting the brewery for the very first time! Tours are free, and are available frequently throughout the day on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The tour was incredibly informative, and inspiring to see the steps taken by FW to educate their entire staff. They offer sensory tastings for all staff to teach them off
flavours, infections, oxidation, etc. I personally feel that it is necessary for breweries to educate, and promote quality control. This is clearly a reason why Firestone succeeds, and deserves praise.
Enough of why I love Firestone so much…take a look at some photos from the tour:
It was definitely a fun, and informative trip! Can’t wait for my next visit!
