Matt’s Burning Rosids – Stone Brewing – Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 2

Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 2
Matt’s Burning Rosids – Stone Brewing – Escondido, CA – Style: Saison with cherrywood smoked malts ABV 10.5% 4.5 out of 5
Dark orange color with a nice white head. The first thing I get out I the scent is Apricot with slight smokey wood and hops. Light sweet hops and I get a fruity apricot taste with the cherrywood in the aftertaste. I can tell this would be a good saison alone but the cherrywood smoked malts makes for a bolder more complicated palate. I had had this with two friends and everyone said “wow that’s good!”


Firestone Walker Beerscapades

This is a great video! I feel the same

beer track mind.

It's. Just. So. Pretty. It’s. Just. So. Pretty.

A buddy and I recently spent a couple weekends heading to Firestone Walker breweries in Paso Robles and Buelton taking footage of the trip and our shenanigans along the way. It was for a contest that FWBC was holding in preparation for the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival (#FWIBF). The idea behind the contest was to create a video entry that shows the extent of your inner beer geek regarding Firestone Walker with tickets to that very event on the line.

Editting the final product. Editing the final product.

We had a lot of fun road tripping around California for this project and, of course, visiting the brewery too! Nothing beats actually visiting the brewery and enjoying some fresh beer with some friends.

So – check it out!

Opal – Firestone Walker (Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 1)

Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 1
Opal – Firestone Walker – Paso Robles, CA – Dry Hoped Saison – ABV 7.5%
Bright yellow color with a nice white head, Cloudy and bubbly. Light fresh fruity scent, the hops come through the nose after you get through the sweet fruit scent. Light sweet hops and citrus taste is the first thing I get. The dry but sweet hop flavor reminds me of a Belgian white ale. It is much bolder and full flavored then the lil Opal. Light consistency but heavy carbonation in the mouth. This was not what I expected but it is a high quality beer. I give it a 4 out of 5
