The PorchCast Ep 96 | Eric Ponce – Firestone Walker

eric ponce firestone walker

In episode 96 of the PorchCast we were joined by Firestone Walker Brewing Barrel Program Manager, Eric Ponce. Eric has been a long-time friend of PorchDrinking dating back to his time managing the barrel program at Goose Island.

We had a chance to sit down with Eric to talk about the barrel-aging program at Firestone Walker, how they go about blending their Anniversary release each year, how he sources barrels and decides what base beers to put into all of those rare specialty barrels, and we also took a deeper look at releases like Parabolita and their Brewmaster’s Reserve Membership Program. Tons of great insight from one of the leading figures in barrel-aged beers. Have a listen!
