    Sotol Barrel-Aged Ale

    Blonde Barleywine Aged in Sotol Barrels

    We venture onto new stomping grounds with our Helldorado aged in Sotol barrels. Sotol is a distilled spirit made from a Shrub commonly referred to as “desert spoon.” As tequila’s northern cousin, it produces fruity sweetness and herbaceous smoke flavors.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

    Cognac Barrel-Aged Barley Wine with Orange and Lemon Peel

Farmstead Collection
  • MAY

    Farmstead Collection

    The inspiration for this collection comes straight from the farm. For starters, we are featuring three Vintage beer variants aged in barrels from our friends at WhistlePig Farm in Vermont, home of one of the world’s finest rye whiskeys. Then we are topping it off with two fresh, funky, and farmhouse-worthy wild ales from Barrelworks. The collection includes a selection of curated food pairings.

  • Whistle Monkee

    Whistle Monkee

    Central Coast Quad Ale Aged in Whistle Pig Whiskey Barrels

    When WhistlePig came to town with a truckload full of spirits, we bartered for some of their fresh, wet rye whiskey barrels. We filled these barrels with our Stickee Monkee Central Coast Quad, then aged it for a year to achieve a perfect balance of rye spice notes with hints of Belgian candi sugar.

  • Boiler Maker

    Boiler Maker

    Whistle Pig Whiskey Barrel Aged Stout

    We had the pleasure of conducting a barrel swap with WhistlePig here in Paso Robles—providing us with the freshest, wettest rye whiskey barrels we’ve ever secured. We filled them the same day with our Velvet Merkin stout to create this barrel-aged masterwork inspired by the Boiler Maker cocktail.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

  • Stickee Pig

    Stickee Pig

    Central Coast Quad Ale Aged in Whistle Pig Whiskey Barrels with Maple Syrup

    We aged our Stickee Monkee Central Coast Quad in high rye whiskey barrels from WhistlePig, then added a dollop of barrel-aged maple syrup from the WhistlePig Farm in Vermont. The result is a highly indulgent sticky beer that will keep you coming back for more.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

  • Mo’ B(r)etta Rosé

    Mo’ B(r)etta Rosé

    Wild Ale Fermented with Raspberries

    An ultra-fruited special edition of our signature Bretta Rosé, a Belgian Framboise-style wild ale from Barrelworks. We took the original Bretta Rosé recipe, then doubled down on the fruit addition with 15,000 pounds of fresh locally grown raspberries. The result is an instant classic bursting with berry goodness.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

  • pFriem Collab

    pFriem Collab

    Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale

    A blended saison made in collaboration with the good folks at pFriem Family Brewers in Hood River, Oregon. Inspired by a beer the pFriem first made with brewer (and Firestone Walker friend) Jenn Talley, we created this masterful blend of barrel-aged sour beer from Barrelworks crossed with a clean saison from our Propagator R&D brewhouse.

Lion’s Den Collection
  • AUGUST

    Lion’s Den Collection

    The Lion (a.k.a. David Walker) speaks loud and clear in this collection, which riffs on a few of his favorites such as DBA while including a throwback to his namesake beer, Walker’s Reserve. To top it off, this collection also features a collab with Highland Park and two “coolship” wild ales that were spontaneously fermented in the Lion’s own family barn. The collection includes an exclusive Brewmaster’s Collective tasting glass.

  • Rye DDBA

    Rye DDBA

    Imperial Special Bitter Ale Aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels (500ml Bottle)

    A special double edition of the beer that started it all for Firestone Walker: DBA. We added a dash of rye to the original DBA mash bill, then aged the beer in 10-year-old rye whiskey barrels. The peppery spice notes of the rye play perfectly off DBA’s caramel and butterscotch flavors, creating an amped-up iteration of a brewery classic.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

  • Walker's Reserve

    Walker’s Reserve

    Barrel Aged Imperial Porter Made with Smoked Malts (500ml Bottle)

    The return of a throwback porter with a few new twists. We dusted off the original Walker’s Reserve recipe and added a hint of beechwood-smoked malt. The beer was then aged for 12 months in eight-year-old bourbon barrels, creating a canvas of bourbon-soaked porter flavors with suggestions of s’mores from the campfire.

  • Highland Park Collab

    Highland Park Collab

    Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout with Vanilla and Spices (500ml Bottle)

    We brewed a heady imperial stout along with our friends at Highland Park, then aged it in eight-year-old wheated whiskey barrels. The finishing touches came when we infused the beer with whole Madagascar vanilla beans followed by a second infusion of some really special spices. You can expect massive, out-of-this-world flavor from this beer.

  • Coolship Wild Ale

    Coolship Wild Ale

    Spontaneously Fermented American Wild Ale

    The journey of this beer began when we brewed a Lambic-style base beer at our Propagator R&D brewhouse. The hot wort was trucked up to David Walker’s farm, where it was transferred to a classic coolship vessel to initiate spontaneous fermentation. We repeated this experience for three consecutive years, resulting in this epic barrel-aged blend of all three lots.

    BREWMASTER’S COLLECTIVE EXCLUSIVE

  • Fruited Coolship Wild Ale

    Fruited Coolship Wild Ale

    Spontaneously Fermented American Wild Ale with Fruit

    A special edition of our Coolship Wild Ale enhanced by an infusion of fresh fruits. While Barrelworks is renowned for its American-style fruited wild ales, this was our chance to pursue the classical art of creating an authentic fruited Lambic-style beer.
