Jeffers Drops Acid... Knowledge!

Join us Friday, Aug. 5th from 12pm to 1:30pm at The Side Project Cellar

(Tickets Required, Continue reading for more Info!)

We are excited to announce that Jeffers Richardson, Director of Firestone Walker Barrelworks, will be visiting The Side Project Cellar on Friday, Aug. 5th! He will be hosting an amazing class (Tickets Required) called Jeffers Drops Acid… Knowledge, which is an exploration of how acidity shapes our sensory perception of wild beers.

The class will also include a tasting of 3 Firestone Walker Barrelworks beers, AND as a special addition, we will be including 2 Side Project beers in the tasting & discussion!


Here is some more information about the class from

“When it comes to wild or sour beers, acidity plays more of a role in the taste experience compared to traditional beers, which are more defined by their hop and malt profiles,” Richardson said. “This seminar is designed to explore the role of acidity, and to reveal not only what you are tasting in the beer, but also why.”

The seminars delve into the differences between pH and total (or titratable) acidity as well as the sensory relationship between smell and taste. Different concentrations of acetic, citric and lactic acids are tasted, enabling you to discover the signature characteristics of each. Along the way, you learn how each of these acids shapes flavor, mouthfeel and overall perception.

Each seminar then ends on a sour note with a special tasting of limited releases from Barrelworks to test your newfound knowledge and reinforce the lesson.
