DBA a.k.a. Double Barrel Ale is the trailblazing ?agship beer that started it all for us back in 1996. Partially fermented in our patented Firestone Union oak barrel brewing system, DBA quickly took the Central Coast by storm and set the pace for future beers to come. Today, DBA is regarded as a California classic, and stands as an iconic tribute to traditional cask fermented English ales. Pale malts create a smooth middle with ribbons of caramel, English to?ee and toasted oak.
