Side Project Merci Release details!

Cannot believe the time has come!  The first Side Project release is safe and sound at the store.
Protected by 24 hour armed guards, laser motion detectors, locked in a vault, thumbprint access to the vault :)  ....................

Many have been asking, how long will purchase count for the Merci bottle release, I will print the report Tuesday.  So you have until 7pm Monday, January 26 for purchases to count towards the the bottle release of Merci.

Also, do not forget, beer reservations will not appear on your account if you have beer to pick up.  It must be picked up and rung through the register.
The bottle release is based on BEER sales only.

Side Project Release!

Side Project Merci Blend #1 is blend of Saison du Ble and a 2 year old American Wild Ale

We have been patiently waiting for our first Side Project release.  Looks like the first beer put in barrel by Side Project for The Wine and Cheese Place was back in June 2013 according to my notes!.   Those barrels are still ageing and waiting for the perfect time for release.  We are excited to announce that Cory and Karen King have made a special release for The Wine and Cheese Place (these were not any of our barrels that we supplied).    They are calling it "Merci" for Thank You and we would like to say Thank you to them also for doing this!   It is a pleasure working with them and has been for many years now.  Looking forward to many more releases.
