Firestone Walker Brewery’s Brewmaster Matt Brynildson and I enjoyed a beer at one of the many events surrounding the Oregon Brewers Festival.
Named Mid Sized Brewery of the Year in 2007, this one-of-a-kind brewery uses an oak barrel fermentation program with a unique twist. In 2008 they walked away from the Great American Brewers Festival with 6 medals. Including a gold medal for Union Jack IPA in the most competitive category with over 100 entries.
Matt is an active supporter of the Glen Hay Falconer Memorial Foundation’s scholarship program and even teaches at the Siebel Institute in Chicago Illinois.
Listen as he shares his insights into brewing, barrel aging and operations at this successful brewery, as well as upcoming never before released specialty ales from both the Nectar and Firestone Walker brands. Download this episode
