The company purchased the former SLO Brewing Company and moved to Paso Robles in 2001. In 2015, the Belgian brewery Duvel Moortgat purchased Firestone Walker, which will help them further grow their business.

Tobin’s Review 4 out of 5
Firestone Walker’s 805 Blonde Ale has a light caramel hue with a small compact head. I pick up light malt and hops on the nose, with a sweet malt flavor and a bit of grain on the finish. This is a good, very easy to drink beer!
