Side Project Brewing / TWCP Single Barrel Beer

Cory is still working on the label - check out this printing plate for the label.
This will be a super special beer release!  Stay tuned. Maybe our most sought after

(beer is bottled and waxed)

Side Project Brewing / TWCP Single Barrel #633 Release update
Last year we went to pick out a single barrel of beer from the cellars of Side Project along with a few of our lucky customers who won the seats in our 40th Anniversary contests. This was the first single barrel ever selected at Side Project! We had an amazing night and picked out a stunning barrel.
Many have been asking when it will be released, especially those at the event.
Just got an update from Cory and he said it is bottled and waxed and waiting on the labels now. He said they are creating an amazing label for the beer

"[tasted] it the other day and it is incredible, so happy with the selection. " - Cory King
(of course, that is no surprise, the beer was amazing)

Release details we know right now
  • We do not know the number of bottles yet, but it is a full barrel
  • Release date: still TBD (but getting closer)
  • All of those that attended the event will be able to purchase a bottle
  • We will release the rest through our Rewards Club
  • Does not matter if you are in our beer or whiskey club
  • The heaviest portion of the release will be based on beer only sales, we want to get this to our regular beer drinkers and supporters.
  • Based on purchases from December 1st, 2022 until a few days before the release date (TBD). We will announce that date when we know. I am guessing that will allow about 6 months of purchases to count.
  • As usual we will do double points for all of our TWCP exclusive beers -- of course that includes Side Project Merci, TWCP 4 Hands Stout and the Perennial TWCP DDH in stock now (and any others we had in the last 6 months or currently.)
we will update when we know more.  

Again, special thanks to Cory and Karen King!
This is an amazing thing they allowed us to do!
