Firestone Walker Parabola Double Barrel 2021 15.5% abv
Of all the beers in our Proprietor’s Vintage Series, Parabola is the most notorious. It is always a beast of a beer, with intense flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and roasted coffee—yet each annual release also bears its own subtle imprint. For the first time ever, this year’s edition was aged for 12 months in an equal mix of bourbon, rye and wheat whiskey barrels, accentuating the beer’s signature richness and intensity with vintage-specific hints of black pepper and cereal grain.
We doubled down on Parabola for our second limited small-batch release. While Parabola is historically aged for one year in premium bourbon barrels, we transferred this edition to a separate lot of wheat whiskey barrels at the 12-month mark for an additional 12 months of aging for a total of 24 months of barrel aging. Eric illuminates:
“The inspiration came from one of my favorite whiskey’s – Weller 12. It’s a wheated bourbon which has recently been difficult to find. Just over a year ago I was able to secure some of these barrels and I wanted to do something special. I had a selection of Parabola barrels that were tasting phenomenal at the one-year mark but thought could go even further. And that’s where double barrel came to be – we emptied Parabola out of eight-year Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and moved it into these 12-year Weller wheated bourbon barrels.”
Very rare and limited availability.

Most beers we sell are bottle-conditioned and will contain some sediment. We therefore would like to advise you to use the following guidelines on receipt of your goods:
- Please open the box carefully and the correct way up (address label will be on the top of the box)
