We're back in action after an insanely fun weekend at the Firestone Walker Invitational up in beautiful Paso Robles, CA. We were one of 50-ish breweries hand selected from around the world to showcase our beers alongside breweries like Alchemist, Russian RiverFloydsSun KingGarage Project and Mahrs just to name a few. The weather and the setting were perfect for tasting all the rad beers. 

Here's Brandon showing off the mothership, our home for the weekend. We got a few compliments over the weekend, so don't be surprised if you see a beer called "Sweet Ride" on the menu in the not too distant future. 

Friday night started off right at the local waterpark where Firestone treated all the breweries to an afternoon of beers and lazy rivers. 

Speaking of beer, this right here is a 2 day old can of Union Jack. 2. Days. Old. It was fresher than a classroom of unruly kindergartners hopped up on cupcakes and pop. 

Mimosa? Coming right up, grab me my saber and I'll get this bottle open right away.  Wait. What?!

Patiently waiting for the festivities to begin.

All aboard the Struggle Bus, you gotta pace yourself kids. Otherwise you'll end up snoozing on a bench while rent-a-cops decide what to do with you. 

We swung by Garage Project for a Two Tap Flat White. It's a robust espresso stout topped with a whipped lactose cream ale that is simply OUTSTANDING. 

Fact, Timbo hates Underbergs. 

But this guy loves his washoos

 

Firestone spared no expense and covered every single detail to insure that the brewers and guests alike had a perfect experience. We had an absolutely amazing time and were blown away by the expertise with which this event was put together. Thank you again for having us, we're already looking forward to next year! 

 

Cheers!
