Firestone Walker Parabola 2015

The wait is finally over! It seems every year the demand for Firestone Walker‘s barrel-aged beers increases dramatically, with Parabola leading the charge.

Both Healthy Spirits locations have gotten an allocated amount of 2015 Parabola. We do expect to sell out quickly, so here is what you need to know:

from Firestone Walker:
One of our most aggressive and sought-after offerings. Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish. A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.
