I would like to welcome Firestone Walker to Illinois.  Tonight at Piece from 6:00 to 8:00 Firestone Walker will be holding a release party.  You should expect samples of Anniversary 14, Double Jack IPA and Walker’s Reserve Porter to be served.

Firestone Walker is a formidable entry into the Chicago market.  It was the winner of the GABF Brewery of the Year in both 2003 and 2007. Firestone Walker also regularly brings home several medals, most notably for their pale ales.  The book 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die (1001 (Universe)) lists the Anniversary Ale, Double Barrel Pale Ale and Union Jack IPA as must tries.

I have only really had the chance to try one of their beers, Anniversary 14, and a sample of a few others.  I look forward to being able to try more  to write a true brewery review.
