Paso Robles’ Firestone Walker produces new beer with musical lineage

Firestone Walker Brewery in Paso Robles often leads the way when it comes to unique beers, but their latest effort, a collaboration with a British-based brewery, might be one of their most unique offerings yet.

During the June 6 episode of “The Liquid Lunch,” hosts Adam Montiel and Jeremy West were able to sample the Beavertown beer that Firestone-Walker is introducing at its brewery and stores around California.

While Firestone Walker Central Coast Sales Manager Mike Bianchi was describing the unique blend of hops, West was quick to point out that the beer is also the creation of  Beaverton Brewer founder Logan Plant.

“I think you’re burying the headline,” West chided Bianchi. “This is Robert Plant’s son that made part of this beer.”

Indeed Logan Plant is the son of the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant, but the younger man has made a name for himself as one of the United Kingdom’s top brewers.

Now Firestone Walker has worked with Beavertown to make something the Paso Robles brewery hasn’t made before.

“This is an IPL,” Bianchi said. “An Indian Pale Lager, something we’ve never released before. It’s using hops from England and the UK, and some west-coast style hops. The one hop really featured in this is called Jester, it’s a really up and coming hop coming out of the UK.”
