David Walker founded Firestone Walker Brewing Company with Adam Firestone in 1996. Some years later, and after more right decisions than wrong, the brewery gained a solid foundation as one of California’s leading craft brewers. His earlier career developing businesses in the world of high tech did little to prepare David for the life of a brewer. He relies on a passion for pale ales, a bias for small enterprise and his brewing peers to help him understand the daily riddle of building a brewery.
