Firestone Walker Brewery’s Matt Brynildson

Firestone Walker Brewery logoFirestone 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.Union Jack IPA w medals
