It has been eight excellent years since Firestone Walker came to Venice and started serving ice cold craft brew to thirsty masses!  Cheers to that!  Head on down to the Propagator, Venice’s very own brewery, this Saturday to celebrate!

A message from Firestone Walker:

April 13 – Firestone Walker Propagator Anniversary Block Party – 11am – 10pm

We’re coming up on eight years of brewing and good times at our taproom and Propagator R&D Brewhouse in Venice, and you’re invited to join the party. Visit our taproom on Saturday, April 13 for a special anniversary celebration including live music, food specials and more. Entry is free, and the festivities will last from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

While you’re here, be sure to try our anniversary beer, Gen-8, each year, we brew a special “Gen” beer to mark another year in Venice. You can also try one of our “mystery flights” designed to test your beer sensory skills from 11-7pm. See you there


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.
