A Firestone Walker Brewing Event

The Firestone Walker Brewing Company is owned by Adam Firestone and David Walker, brother-in-laws. The love of beer has helped Adam (the bear) and David (the lion) craft iconic pale ales and barrel-aged beers over the last twenty years despite their relationship. Learn more about the Firestone & Walker brother-in-laws below. Join The Hoppy Brewer in the Firestone Walker Tap Take Over event on Thursday, July 28th, 2016.

David Walker

The Lion

British expatriate and Adam’s brother-in-law who brought a European twist to the proceedings. Together, they soon dreamed of building an unparalleled regional brewery, one that combined the authenticity of Old World craft with the innovative spirit of California.

Adam Firestone

The Bear

Growing up on the Central Coast surrounded by vineyards and winemaking, Adam’s gravitation towards brewing started at an early age.  The brewing ideas all launched in converted wine making equipment – mostly with mixed results.  But the hook was set when the first recipe for Double Barrel Ale was attempted.  All that was needed to take this idea beyond a pipe dream was a partner.  Many were approached with the idea but none were interested.  That is until he persuaded one lone Englishman who happened to be married to his sister.
