“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, firestonewalker.com.
