"Double DBA" - Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
Going to school on the Central Coast, Firestone’s Double Barrel Ale was a staple for those who preferred not to guzzle down gallons of Natty Light with the rest of the hoarde. It was one of the first craft beers that we ever drank, and it helped to get us started on our beer journey.
When we heard about Double DBA,we were very intrigued, and immediately ran to BevMo to pick some up. At a mighty 12% ABV, we knew this was going to be an ageable beer so, we picked up a half case to age and taste over time. We finally had a chance to taste it for the first time last week.
