The FW Bundle includes 4 very special beers, described below.
Firestone Walker :
355ml- 12.7% - XXII Anniversary Ale, a beer celebrating our 22 years brewing here on California’s Central Coast. Each year we host a barrel aged blending competition with local winemakers & this year the winning blend is from Sherman Thacher & Daniel Callan of Thacher Winery, along with Terry Hoage & Phil Lamontagne from TH Estate Wines, with help from our friend & master bread maker Arie Litman. XXII Anniversary Ale is 12.7% ABV & is a blend of bourbon, rum & gin barrels.
Here is the final blend for XXII Anniversary Ale:
Stickee Monkee – 44%
Parabola – 22%
Bravo – 22%
Rum Barrel Helldorado – 7%
Gin Barrel Helldorado – 5%
375ml – 6.2% - Krieky Bones. This beer begins its life as a Flanders Red inspired beer aged over a year in French oak foeders. Sour Montmorency cherries are added and allowed a secondary fermentation. The aroma is of cherry pie complete with flavors of pie crust, spice and an underlying funk. Vienna malt notes give way to an assertive acidity and a bright carbonation. Santé!
375ml – 6.1% - Peachy Bones. Another offering from our “Bones” series, featuring the fermentation of fresh fruit. In this instance California white peaches from Sanger, CA are fermented with a brett’d saison that has been maturing four months in French oak barrels. The synergy between fresh peach, wild microflora and oak components create a bright white peach flavor mingling with spicy yeast and oak aromas. Soft acidity and a firm carbonation lend “pop” to the overall sensory experience. It took four separate fermentations to create this concoction. Santé!
355ml – 7.8% - Velvet Merkin. A decadent Oatmeal Stout aged for a year in bourbon barrels resulting in an impossibly smooth and dangerously drinkable beer with notes of chocolate, espresso, vanilla and bourbon.
