The Brewers

The Brewmaster

Matt Brynildson

Matt Brynildson’s nickname says it all: “Merlin.” Renowned as one of the world’s leading brewmasters, Matt has worked his magic at Firestone Walker since 2001. He has been named “Champion Brewmaster” four times at the World Beer Cup and “Brewer of the Year” six times at the Great American Beer Festival. Matt established our Vintage spirits barrel program in 2006, helping spark the revolution in barrel-aged beers with Parabola, Anniversary Ale and other iconic creations.

Vintage Barrel Manager

Eric Ponce

Eric Ponce is a force in the world of barrel-aged beers. After cutting his teeth at several breweries here and abroad, he was recruited by Firestone Walker in 2017 and immediately took our Vintage program to the next level. Eric draws upon his Mexican heritage, his passion for food and his diverse brewing experience to bring extreme creativity to his barrel-aging recipes—from straight-up classics to exotic cocktail and culinary-inspired beers.

Propagator Brewery Manager

Sam Tierney

As the Brewing Manager at our Propagator R&D brewhouse in Venice, California, Sam is a master of innovation. Before taking the helm of the Propagator, Sam spent eight years at our main brewery in Paso Robles, serving as a shift brewer, yeast specialist and cellar manager. Under Sam’s direction, the Propagator is the R&D facility that sets the pace for what’s next from Firestone Walker, including experimental brews, small-batch offerings and periodic re-releases of brewery classics.

Paso Robles Brewery Tours will be complimentary for club members plus three guests. All tours are subject to availability; advanced booking is required and not guaranteed. Please book online and use a promo code to redeem the discount at checkout. The Promo code will be published by January 1, 2023.  Booking must be made under the member’s name and be present with the group. Masks and closed-toed shoes are required to enter the brewhouse.

Note: While we are a 24-hour brewery, most of the visible activity in the brewhouse happens on weekdays. If you book a tour on the weekend, be prepared for minimal visible brewhouse activity.
