Cider, Spirits, and Craft Beer
Go Beyond Wine
While Paso Robles is known for its wine, it’s also home to the leaders of the California craft spirits movement. Winemakers are turning towards distilling as part of the latest wave in Paso. Home to more than 12 craft distilleries, Paso is the hub of this Central Coast movement. REFIND, the first one on the scene, takes the unused juice from winemaking to distill it into a line-up of vodka and gin products with a special Paso touch.
Paso’s craft beer industry is anchored with Firestone Walker Brewing Company. More than a dozen breweries call Paso home.
The hard cider movement is also happening as a result of wine. Winemakers fermenting apples has resulted in the latest crave. Check out Tin City Ciderfor a full tasting of all things cider.
