Less Taxing BBQ and Successful Suds

Firestone Walker wins again; Tax Free BBQ for Carina Cellars

“Brewing is a team sport,” said Firestone Walker’s Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. And he should know: Brynildson and Firestone Walker Brewing successfully defended their titles of Champion Brewery and Champion Brewmaster at the World Beer Cup held last month. They also took home gold medals for their Pale Ale and IPA Nectar. Taste Firestone Walker’s award-winning brews at The Taproom, 620 McMurray Rd., Buellton, 686-1557,

We don’t need no stinkin’ taxes. Join the crew at Carina Cellars this Saturday for their Tax Break BBQ.
