Calling all beer connoisseurs!  They are back!  The return of the one of the most epic pair of brews ever, from our friends at Firestone Walker!

Fun fact:  Parabola was named after the Tool song by the same name

Introducing The 2023 Vintages

Our famed stout, Parabola, is back with a new vintage that was aged in a rare blend of spirits barrels from Blanton’s and W.L. Weller. And this year, it’s accompanied by the second-edition of Paraboloid, a small-batch spinoff that was aged for 18 months in 20-year-old Elijah Craig barrels. Learn more about the beers in our latest blog post.

Parabola is rolling out now to all Firestone Walker markets in limited 12-ounce bottles and on draft. Both Parabola and Paraboloid are available for a limited time at our three locations and our online store.

Founded by brothers-in-law Adam Firestone and David Walker in 1996, Firestone Walker Brewing Company is a California beer company with three innovative brewing facilities. Firestone Walker’s main brewery in Paso Robles produces a diverse portfolio ranging from iconic pale ales to vintage barrel-aged beers. The Barrelworks facility in Buellton makes eccentric wild ales, while the Propagator pilot brewhouse in Venice specializes in R&D beers and limited local offerings. Firestone Walker is also the brewery behind 805, one of the nation’s fastest-growing beers. Firestone Walker was recently named “Best American Brewery of the Decade” by Paste Magazine.

The Propagator is our R&D pilot brewhouse that sets the pace for what’s next from Firestone Walker. The Propagator is a wellspring of ideas, flavors and beers that are unique to—and inspired by–our Venice neighborhood.


Our Venice Taproom presents a gastropub feel with a menu geared for beer. The adjoining bar offers Firestone Walker favorites, including taps dedicated to Barrelworks wild ales as well as limited Venice-only beers made in the adjacent Propagator brewhouse.
