Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest to return June 4
Tickets purchased for the postponed 2020 fest will carry over to this year’s event
– The Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest is set to return on June 4, with a curated cast of more than 55 breweries from around the world.
“The Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest was born from a dream of creating a world-class festival featuring some of the best brewers in the world,” said Firestone Walker Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “This is a day when we can set the sales pitches aside and simply share our beers and stories with passionate craft drinkers.”
Tickets purchased for the postponed 2020 fest will carry over to this year’s event, which is why no additional tickets are for public sale.
One of the features that makes the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest unique is that the brewers themselves come to the event to personally share their creations, ensuring that the experience is steeped in craft beer culture.
Attending breweries at the 2022 event include FrauGruber Craft Brewing from Germany; Brouwerij ‘t IJ from Amsterdam; Casey Brewing from Glenwood Springs, Colorado; Schönramer from Germany; Cerveza Antares from Argentina; Bale Breaker Brewing from Yakima, Washington; Cervejaria Bamberg from Brazil; Cloudwater Brew Co. from England; Urban Roots Brewing from Sacramento, California; Omnipollo from Sweden; There Does Not Exist and Liquid Gravity from San Luis Obispo, California; and Great Notion Brewing from Oregon. A complete list of the breweries attending the 2022 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest can be viewed below and on the event page.
The 2022 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest collaboration beer will be “Parrotphrase,” a dry-hopped grisette ale made with Green Cheek Beer Company. This beer will be poured for all fest patrons, and will be available for public pre-sale in April.
The fest will also feature offerings from local food artisans as well as live music by The Stone Foxes and The Lil’ Smokies. Proceeds from the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest benefit the nonprofit Paso Robles Pioneer Day, a beloved local institution.
The ‘Ultimate Firestone Walker Experience’
Firestone Walker today also unveiled the “Ultimate Firestone Walker Experience” sweepstakes, which includes two tickets to the 2022 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest.
