An evening of food, barrel-aged beers and brewery banter as Firestone Walker Brewing Company partners with Chef Hosea Rosenberg, winner of Top Chef season five. This event will feature a vertical tasting of barrel-aged anniversary ales from the Firestone Walker library, specifically rare sold-out vintages from the previous four years: XII, XIII, XIV and XV. Rosenberg will present a bold menu of small passed plates created to complement each beer. Along the way, brewery proprietors Adam Firestone (a.k.a. the bear) and David Walker (a.k.a. the lion) and Brewmaster Matt Brynildson will share stories and scuttle from inside the brewery.
