About Ten Buck Chuck by Firestone Walker Brewing Company

Chuck Silva is a pioneer of the West Coast style IPA and a legend in the San Diego craft beer scene. He recently resettled on California's Central Coast to begin his next chapter in craft beer - opening Silva Brewing in Paso Robles. No stranger to hops himself, Firestone Walker Brewmaster, Matt Brynildson wanted to welcome Chuck back to the beautiful region. What better way to be neighborly than work on a beer collaboration. Naturally, Barrelworks did not want to miss out, offering a French oak horizontal foeder from Saxum winery, our resident wild critters, and 6 months of barrel aging time to this adventure. Introducing Ten Buck Chuck! This wild ale demonstrates a new spin to Barrelworks beers: transforming a hop forward beer through secondary fermentation and oak aging. The result is an amazing twist on IPA. Hop-derived aromas of mango, dried apricot and pineapple blend seamlessly with the tropical character of our wild microflora. A glimpse into the world of hop aroma biotransformation. Soft oak and funky fruit forward flavors give way to a firm yet clean hop bitterness and gentle acidity that is uniquely quenching. A santé!


Firestone Walker Brewing Company is renowned for crafting iconic pale ales and pioneering barrel-aged beers on California's Central Coast.
