Frequently Asked Questions
We would love to answer some of your questions.
1. How do you purchase Side Project beer to take home?
Sometimes we have “To-Go” Side Project beer available at The Side Project Cellar. You can find out by checking our online Cellar List where Side Project beer is listed as either “On-Site” or “To-Go.”
We also have “To-Go” Beer Releases when a full batch of beer is ready! When a beer is finished bottle conditioning, we pick a release date. We’ll announce a Side Project beer release from our @SideProjectBrew Twitter account. Sometimes we give a few weeks notice, sometimes just a day or two, and sometimes we do surprise releases. We like to mix it up to try and support the local St. Louisans and the out-of-town visitors! The allocation of that beer is based on how many people show up for the release. We recommend arriving by the time the release begins so you have the best chances of purchasing the allocation. (Ex: If a release begins at 4pm, we recommend arriving by 3:55pm so you are included in the headcount the allocation is based off of.)
Also, we try to save a little beer from each beer release for our on-site Cellar List at The Side Project Cellar. So if you are unable to attend a release, you can always check our online list or follow @SideProjectCell on Twitter to find out when you might be able to enjoy a bottle on-site at
The Side Project Cellar!
2. Is Side Project beer available at any local retailers?
We do not distribute Side Project beers. They are only available at The Side Project Cellar or at Side Project releases (see answer #1).
Note: The Wine & Cheese Place in St. Louis has given us some amazing whiskey and wine barrels to age our beer in, so whenever a beer that was aging in a TWCP barrel is ready to release, we will distribute some of that beer to The Wine & Cheese Place. This is the only time Side Project beers are ever available at a local retailer.
3. Do you ship beer?
We can’t legally ship any beer. Our beer is only available at The Side Project Cellar or at Side Project releases (see answer #1).
4. Do you ship Side Project shirts, glassware or other merchandise?
We don’t currently have an online store, so we do not ship any merchandise. All shirts, gift cards, glassware, etc… are available for purchase inside
The Side Project Cellar.
5. Do you serve food or snacks at The Side Project Cellar?
We do not serve food. Just beer, whiskey, wine & cider!

No, we invite you to visit one of our Maplewood neighbors for food, and visit us for a beverage before or after!
7. Do you allow busses or large groups at The Side Project Cellar?
