I can't believe it's already Maplewood Coffee Crawl time! The annual Maplewood Coffee Crawl is this Saturday, March 24th! To celebrate, BOTH The Side Project Cellar and the Brewery tasting room will be tapping a delicious Side Project Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout + that base beer blended with five different coffee beans from five local St. Louis roasters! Here's the schedule for both locations:
AT OPEN: Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout (Tapping at 12pm at Brewery, 1pm at Cellar)
This is the Base Imperial Stout for all five beers below. The base beer will be tapped at Open at both locations, so tapped at our 12pm Open at the Brewery Tasting Room and at our 1pm Open at The Side Project Cellar. This year, it is a blend of 2 barrels - the first barrel is our Side Project O.W.K. recipe that was aged in a 5-year-old Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel for 13 months. The second barrel is a recipe found in Derivation Blend #6, a huge, Oatmeal Imperial Stout that was aged for 31 months in a Blanton's Barrel. 15% ABV
1pm: Kicking off the day with two local Maplewood roasters:
Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout - La Cosecha Colombia Tolima
Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout - Foundation Grounds Costa Rica Tarrazu
2pm: Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout - Blueprint Rwanda Kanzu
3pm: Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout - Kaldi's Myranmar Tet Kone
4pm: Side Project Coffee Crawl 2018 BA Stout - Sump Burundi Kirema
We're gathering the altitudes, bean tasting notes, etc... for each coffee bean so you'll be able to compare the beers with information about each bean!
We'll see you this weekend! You do NOT need Coffee Crawl Tickets to visit The Side Project Cellar or Brewery tasting room. You can purchase each stout separately. Please note both the Brewery tasting room (Open 12-7pm) and The Side Project Cellar (Open 1-11pm) are open regular business hours this Saturday.
