The Propagator is our R&D pilot brewhouse that sets the pace for what’s next from Firestone Walker. It’s a wellspring of ideas, flavors and beers that are unique to—and inspired by–our Venice neighborhood.

With the fourth anniversary of the Propagator, we’re excited to release Gen-4, Firestone’s newest Double IPA. Loaded with bold pineapple, peach and sweet citrus notes, this 8.3% stunner cranks the amperage up from previous anniversary releases, Gen-1, 2 and 3.

We have always loved the idea of doing a special double IPA for our anniversary, and since this is our 4th anniversary at the Propagator we are doing Gen-4.  Gen-2 and Gen-3 were both based on the original Gen-1 recipe, which was our first original recipe brewed down here. Gen-2 was brewed as the “anniversary of our first batch” beer which was actually a year and a half after we opened.

We are a little late for the actual 4th anniversary, but we still wanted to do something special, so we put it in cans.

Dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Azacca, Simcoe and Idaho gem, the beer employs our hazy yeast strain and punches with a juicy, unfiltered body while honoring Firestone’s west-coast IPA lineage.

Gen-4 is a double IPA at 8.3% ABV. Now available in 16 oz. four-pack cans for $19.99. Very limited release with only 200 cases available. Limit (4) 4-packs per order.
