COMING SOON: LION'S DEN COLLECTION

After a little summer break to avoid shipping in the hottest summer months, we're back!  Our next shipment, the Lion's Den Collection, is heading your way next week and will bring you the return of two long-awaited beers, an epic collab, two spontaneous wild ales years in the making, and a perfectly versatile glass.

Lion's Den Collection

The Lion's Den Collection is all about– you guessed it– the Lion. One of our two co-founders and fearless leader, David Walker, was given his beloved nickname thanks to his British heritage. You can see this influence in many aspects of Firestone Walker's beers and history, including in these beers we share with you today. After a long hiatus of Double DBA and Imperial Walkers Reserve, we wanted our club members to indulge in this Collection full of beers closest to the Lion's heart.

Additional bottles of each of these five beers will be available to purchase online beginning August 11. 

RYE DDBA

IMPERIAL SPECIAL BITTER ALE AGED IN RYE WHISKEY BARRELS​

Our flagship Double Barrel Ale gets its coveted doubled-up treatment thanks to the brilliant mind of our Production Manager, Ali Razi. Last seen bottled in 2016, DDBA will also see a wider release next year, as we recently brewed it for our 10,000th batch of beer in the Paso Robles Brewhouse. We then added a dash of rye to the original DBA mash bill then aged the beer in 10-year-old rye whiskey barrels. Peppery spice notes from the rye play perfectly off DBA's caramel and butterscotch character, creating an amped-up iteration of a brewery classic. 

12.6% ABV | 260 cases produced
BREWMASTER'S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

NO ENDS, ONLY BEGINNINGS

IMPERIAL STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS

Brewed with our friends at Highland Park Brewery, this stout is stuffed with chocolate and roast barley malts and was aged for a year in premium bourbon barrels. Aromas of semi-sweetened dark chocolate, fig and vanilla meet flavors of bourbon & baking spices. Simultaneously viscous and smooth, this collaboration is not to be missed. Keep an eye out for their rendition of the same beer, set to release in the near future. 

12% ABV | 560 cases produced

IMPERIAL WALKER'S RESERVE

IMPERIAL SMOKED PORTER AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS

Speaking of milestone batches, Imperial Walker's Reserve was also last brewed back in 2016 in honor of our 5,000th batch. We dusted off the recipe for one of our original beers, Walker's Reserve Porter (last ween cira 2014), and added a few twists. A hint of beechwood-smoked malt and aging in eight-year-old bourbon barrels for 12 months created a bold canvas: a bourbon-soaked porter with suggestions of s'mores from the campfire. This is only the second time this beer has ever been released in a bottle!

11.5% ABV | 560 cases produced

Lion's Den Collection

These two Barrelworks releases are very near and dear to our hearts and are a labor of love. We give you both a fruited and unfruited iteration of a classic Belgian Gueuze style. The style is spontaneously fermented in a koelship (open fermentation vessel) right in David Walker's own family barn. This process is repeated three times over the course of several years and is aged in three separate lots. The final blend consists of one, two, and three-year-aged beer and is a work of art.

FERUS SPONTANEOUS
SPONTANEOUSLY FERMENTED AMERICAN WILD ALE

Ferus Spontaneous is a blend of one, two, and three-year-old koelship-cooled, spontaneously fermented beer. The beer was aged in American oak, and select barrels from the last three seasons were blended together in the Belgian Gueuze tradition. Years in our hearts and in the making, this beer has aromas of Meyer lemon zest, a tangy, funky character and a crisp, effervescent mouthfeel. 

5.6% ABV | 100 cases produced 
BREWMASTER'S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

FERUS FRUITANEOUS
SPONTANEOUSLY FERMENTED WILD ALE WITH RASPBERRIES & GUAVA

The companion release to Ferus Spontaneous, this beer sees the addition of freshly picked Ventura-grown raspberries and equal amounts of freshly harvested Mexican Guava. Floral and candy-like aromas are paired with a bright, spicy character and a spritzy finish. Ferus Fruitaneous speaks to old-world Lambic brewing techniques combined with our West Coast fruited flair. 

5.5% ABV | 100 cases produced
