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.
