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 youíd pay anywhere else for FSW beer. A great place to stop by.

SamGamgee  (182) down the whirlpool, California | November 18, 2009
Theyíre 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 itís not closer to my house. There is no better break from all the Cabernet in Paso than Firestone.

Itís great to see a local brewery growing market share and at the same time not getting too big. I am always impressed with their quality as well as their creativity and willingness to brew niche styles. I am eagerly awaiting the upcoming release of Nectar Ales "Black Xantus". Cheers!

If I hadnít known that Double Jack is coming out soon, there would have been nearly zero reason to go. Luckily, they did indeed have it on tap. However, only their standards and Humboldt things were on offer besides, which struck me as both odd and disappointing. Pretty building, small tasting room. Directions were stilted for me and it took me about an hour to find (though this is largely because of city signage and not brewery instructions). And I could be imagining this, but it seems like their 6-packs are more expensive here than any store in CA.
