I like my beer like I like my men: tall, dark and handsome. What is the darkest beer of them all? Well hello, stout!

Happily, it does.
Revered as one of the best beer festivals ever and sold out months prior to the festivities, Firestone Invitational Beer Fest was born from a dream of creating a world class festival featuring not only the best brewers in the world, but brewers whom they feel are leading the craft.
And having now experienced the beer festival among festivals in Paso Robles, I wholeheartedly agree.
