New to Lukas Wine & Spirits, Firestone Walker’s Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA (8.5% ABV)!
“Wookey Jack is our first foray into the dark outer world of black IPAs. Rich dark malts and spicy rye careen into bold citrus laden hops creating a new dimension in IPA flavor. This brew has been left unfiltered and unfined to retain all of its texture and character. At 60 IBUs, Wookey Jack is gnarly on the outside yet complex and refined on the inside.
REMEMBER: Watch for bottled on dates located on the necks or bottom left corner of the label for each of our beers. Our beer is not pasteurized, so it is best when stored at 44F or below, out of light and within 120 days of the bottled on date…this ensures freshness and ultimately a great Firestone Walker beer!” – per the Firestone Walker Brewing Company website

Who is the Firestone Walker Brewing Company you ask?
“Firestone Walker Brewing Company brewed its first beer in 1996 in a small facility rented from the Firestone Vineyard estate in Santa Barbara County. In 2001 owners Adam Firestone and David Walker purchased the SLO Brewing Company located in Paso Robles, CA.
Firestone Walker’s ales are selectively fermented in the Firestone Union oak barrel brewing system. The Firestone Union incorporates 65-gallon; medium and heavy toast American oak barrels.
Firestone Walker Brewing Company continues to grow as the palates of Americans migrate to craft beer. Our brew staff has picked up “Mid Size Brewery of the Year” at the World Beer Cup an unmatched four times.” – per the Firestone Walker Brewing Company website
