Red Scooter and Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

With a tour scheduled for the afternoon at Firestone Walker Brewing Co., we decided to drive to downtown Paso Robles for lunch. Looking for a deli on iMaps, we found the Red Scooter Deli. PB ordered our food, while I found us a table on the patio overlooking the park at the center of town. A Christmas tree lightning was scheduled for later that evening at the park, and all the town storefronts were decorated for the holidays. Our sandwiches, the Daddy-O (pastrami, provolone cheese, pepperoncinis, mayo, spicy mustard all on a French roll) for PB and a BLT for me, were delicious!

After lunch, we headed over to Firestone Walker Brewing Co. to meet brother and his girlfriend for our scheduled Barrel Room tour. We had made reservations in advance for this behind-the-scenes of the Firestone Walker brewhouse. Alex was our Firestone Walker Beer Educator, guiding us through areas of the brewery that are usually off-limits to the public. The hour-long tour took us through an overview of Firestone Walker's history, Brewhouse I & II, the bottling line, the fermentation cellar, both the Canning and Kegging Hall, then finishing with a tasting in the Barrel Room. Throughout the tour, we sampled five of Firestone Walker’s finest beers while being shown the process in which these beers are made. The tour ended at the Visitor Center where we were provided with a souvenir bag for each of us that contained a 12oz Firestone Walker beer, a Glencairn glass, and a bottle opener. By the end of the day, we were ready to get back to our rv and get some rest since we planned on heading out to the coast to see Morro Bay the next day.
