Firestone Walker Anniversary Ale XXIV Review
It took a competing network of winemakers and a blend of six barrel-aged vintage beers from Firestone Walker's cellar to create this highly anticipated anniversary ale. The 24th anniversary celebration blend is made up of select lots of Parabola, Walker’s Reserve, Stickee Monkee, Velvet Merkin, Bravo, and Tequila Helldorado, and tasting it is a trip down memory lane in a dreamworld, a.k.a. to the cellar at Firestone Walker. Without any dessert-like adjuncts, this beer accomplishes unmistakable layers of chocolate, vanilla bean, and stone fruit. It's an astonishing accomplishment, especially considering the circumstances of how it was made in Covid-19, which you can read more about here.
