Winemakers are masters in the art of blending, which is why Firestone Walker invites some local winemaker friends every year to create a single beer out of multiple barrel-aged offerings. This year's example, 25th Anniversary Ale, is more special than most. Rich, complex, and flavorful, it's a blend of five distinct ales aged in bourbon, brandy and tequila barrels that's great alone or for pairing with a hearty meal. Clocking in at 11.5% ABV, it's available as a single boxed 12 oz. bottle or in a special Trio Pack along with two of the component beers, Parabola Autumn Edition and Stickee Monkee.
