Firestone Walker releases new IPA mixed pack

Pack ‘captures the story of the West Coast IPA, as told by Firestone Walker,’ says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson

Firestone Walker Brewing Company has unveiled its latest offering, the “Beer Before Glory” IPA Mixed Pack, presenting a retrospective journey through two decades of West Coast IPA heritage and innovation.

Based in Paso Robles, California, the brewery’s mixed pack includes four distinctive brews: the Firestone California IPA, Luponic Distortion IPA, Hopnosis Cold IPA, and Union Jack West Coast IPA. Crafted at Firestone Walker’s solar-powered brewery in Paso Robles, the pack aims to encapsulate the evolution of the West Coast IPA style over the past 20 years.

“This pack captures the story of the West Coast IPA, as told by Firestone Walker,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “It reminds us of where we came from as a California brewery, and it also reflects where we’re headed next.”

Founded in 1996 by Adam Firestone and David Walker, Firestone Walker became a pivotal player in the craft beer revolution, particularly with the rise of West Coast IPAs such as Union Jack. The Beer Before Glory IPA Mixed Pack serves as a testament to the brewery’s ongoing commitment to innovation and quality.

“Beer Before Glory” is Firestone Walker’s longtime rallying cry, signifying the brewery’s relentless pursuit of the perfect beer. “We’ve always had the belief that if we focus on brewing world-class beer first and foremost, everything else will follow,” said Nick Firestone. “It’s about having a drive for innovation and quality that we draw from the culture of California. It’s what makes ‘Beer Before Glory’ the perfect name for a pack that delivers the full arc of our West Coast IPA brewing experience.”

The individual beers in the pack offer a diverse range of flavors and brewing techniques.
