Instead of using stainless steel tanks, Firestone Walker uses individual 60-gallon oak wine barrels for fermentation and conditioning. Why go through all the bother? The improved palate, hop maturity, unique flavors and aromas imparted by the oak barrels all add up to a beer of intriguing complexity. The technical advantages of the Double Barrel Union process are the bright beer, stable, consistent fermentations, good attenuation, and excellent, healthy pitching yeast. Firestone Walker uses a 40 barrel Brewhouse and a custom designed linked oak barrel fermentation system to brew Double Barrel Ale. Brewmaster Jeffers Hazen Richardson studied at UC Davis and assumed the role of Brewmaster at four different California breweries prior to joining Firestone Walker.
