Very professional establishment. They have been riding their lineup for sometime now. Wife and I stop by there often on our vacations up north. Food and selection are strong. Their reserve is by far the best beer they offer.

Here for my sister’s wedding weekend. Made the trip up the 101 to what is a beer destination must-do for us East Coasters. Place is airy and inviting. Decent amount of seating that clears out quick and it looks like they’re expanding the bar. Lots of goodies on tap including Velvet Merkin (heheh) and DOUBLE DBA. Had Parabola on tap too. DFL! Decent merch for souvenir-hunters and beer geeks. Special flights paired with cheese AND chocolates. My only knock is that I wish it had a more elaborate menu. But then again, I suppose that’s what the Buellton branch is for. out of Abacus, though. Bummer.

A great stop. Right off the 101 just south of Paso Robles. They open at 12 every day. Nice facility. Really small for the world class beers they produce. Parking out front. Tasting bar, merchandise, tables and a big TV playing ESPN. Great beers on tap and available to go. Super fresh Double Jack and 14 in both bottles and on tap. Service was nice. Spoke with Matt for a while. Brewery was bottling and they were doing some sort of construction. Great prices. Food list was short, but my pizza/flat bread (only real option) was very tasty. Mostly older (and friendly) locals bemoaning having to share bottles of 14 with their "budweiser sipping ignoramus inlaws" An awesome stop between LA and SF. Will stop by anytime I make that trip!

Pretty standard tasting room. Good break from the freeway, and the primary attraction is the harder to find firestones.

A cozy tasting room kept in dark colors from the tiles on the floor to the dark wooden interior. And then it is nice and cool on a hot summer day. We showed up at opening time and instead of just sampling the beers we had a very informative tour of the brewery. The selection in the tasting room were limited, but we had some hard to get stuff and a bottle to take away.

This brewery tasting room is really nothing to write home about, from the design of the place to the absolutely uninterested service behind the bar, from the boring tap menu (where are the specialties?) to the sports on tvs everywhere. I love session ales and Firestone Walkers are all well made, but they are rather round/sweet, so not to my liking for quenching purposes. The only "special" beer on tap was the Parabola, their wonderful Imperial Stout. This brew saved my visit, to be honest.

I did not realize I had not rated this. Just a hop away from 101 and they sometimes sell 4 oz snifters of Parabola, Velvet Merkin or other specialties but not growlers. I will stop by to see what on draft as I often pass by.

This place is out in the middle of nowhere. A really well designed face and a really small brewery considering how much output they are doing. The bar is stacked with fresh, yummy FSW. The price is right inline with what you’d pay anywhere else for FSW beer. A great place to stop by.

SamGamgee  (182) down the whirlpool, California | November 18, 2009
They’re not the best about serving their special releases on tap very often, but unfiltered double barrel and beyond-fresh union jack are worth a stop by themselves. They also serve imperial pints, and half pints for half price, which is a nice touch. The mustard is amazing stuff and might also be worth the stop alone if you are a mustard fan (the 10 food score is just for that; pretzels are all they have otherwise). TAKE THE TOUR if you are there on a saturday, or you can call in advance and try to set something up; very thorough and educational for brewers, and you can see the barrel room with advanced planning. About 100 yards from 101, so this is a mandatory stop when driving up or down Central California

Score reflects the no restaurant thing but in general THE brewery on the Central Coast. Beers across the board are world-class and my only regret is that it’s not closer to my house. There is no better break from all the Cabernet in Paso than Firestone.
