In a craft world dominated by hoppy beers, we went back to the basics with Firestone Lager, a premium beer with an iconic recipe.
IMPECCABLY BREWED, IMPOSSIBLY SMOOTH AND IMMENSELY DRINKABLE
According to Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, Firestone Lager is our hardest beer to make – and our easiest one to drink. Made in the classic all-malt Munich Helles style, Firestone Lager demands technical perfection from our brewing team, with a transparent canvas that would otherwise reveal the smallest flaw. Gambrinus pilsner malt establishes a crisp, dry base with a soft mouthfeel, while noble German hops provide just a whisper of bitterness.
Despite the complex brewing process, Matt Brynildson decided to pursue brewing a lager to join Firestone Walker’s line up. In 2001 when our brewing operations moved North from Buellton to Paso Robles and reformulated an earlier “cold lagered” beer to be a true lager. The result is an impossibly smooth and immensely drinkable beer that aims to help redefine American Lager.
