The Side Project Cellar's 4-year Anniversary is Nov. 11, 2018! Since Nov. 11th happens to fall on a Sunday this year, we’ll be celebrating starting the Tuesday leading up to our Anniversary. We hope you join us for some of the fun:
Tuesday, Nov. 6th at 4pm: Side Project Beer : Barrel : Time Drafts
SP Beer : Barrel : Time 2017 on Draft
SP Beer : Barrel : Time 2018 on Draft - THE DEBUT!!! (More details about 2018 BBT is coming soon.)
Wednesday, Nov. 7th at 3pm: Vintage Firestone Walker Cases
We decided to celebrate one of our favorite breweries during our Anniversary Week this year. Plus, on Saturday, Nov. 10th, we’ll be releasing our Terroir Project beers (more info below)! We’ve been cellaring so much delicious Firestone Walker beer since we opened, we thought our Anniversary Week would be a great time to pop some of these bottles, all stored in their original boxes at 58 degrees in our Side Project beer cellar. The following FW bottles will be available at Open along with another tasty surprise:
FW Parabola 2106
FW Velvet Merkin 2016
FW XX Anniversary Ale (2016)
FW Helldorado 2016
Thursday, Nov. 8th at 6pm: Side Project Anabasis Blend #3 Draft - THE DEBUT!!!
Side Project Anabasis is our American Barleywine aged in Bourbon Barrels for 2 years before its release. Blend #3 bottles will be released on a later date.
Friday, Nov. 9th at 3pm: Side Project 5 Candles Draft - THE DEBUT!!!
Just like 1 Candle, 2 Candles, 3 Candles & 4 Candles, 5 Candles is our draft-only, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with unique flavors that are best enjoyed still, or with no carbonation.
Our 5 Candles is our O.W.K. Stout Recipe aged in two Still 630 Rye Barrels and finished on 5 different types of Vanilla Beans and Served Still.
Saturday, Nov. 10th at OPEN at Both Locations: Side Project Terroir Project Release!
We were honored to be invited by Firestone Walker to participate in the Terroir Project along with Garage Project, Jester King, Trillium, Sierra Nevada and Beavertown.
“From the West Coast to the East Coast, London to New Zealand, each participating brewery was invited to produce their own distinct hybrid, but with three binding stipulations: we all had to use the same grain bill; the same maturation period in barrels; and the same co-fermented percentage of wort & wine grapes. The kicker: all grapes had to be grown within 100 miles of each brewery. The result is an unprecedented exploration into how “terroir”—or sense of place—drives what we taste.” More info about this project: https://www.firestonebeer.com/brewery/terroir-project.php
Side Project created two beers for the Terroir Project: Side Project Terroir Project Chambourcin and Terroir Project Vidal Blanc. This beer/wine hybrid was co-fermented with grapes from Noboleis Vineyards - one beer with Chambourcin grapes and one beer with Vidal Blanc grapes. Both were bottled in 375ml bottles and will be available To Go for $15 each from both locations at Open on Saturday, Nov. 10th.
The Side Project Cellar may also be pouring some Anniversary Week leftovers from our exciting week! Please check our website that day to see what’s available: www.thesideprojectcellar.com
We look forward to celebrating with you next week! Thank you for 4 incredible years of The Side Project Cellar! Cheers to many more!
