Beer News - Side Project Merci and Deschutes Abyss

If you have not been to The Side Project Cellar yet - check it out
Best beer bar in the area!

Of course, we keep getting inquiries about our first Side Project release (hopefully the first of many releases)

Another step closer on this one.  Cory just stopped by and he said the label just got approved!  It is true, I just saw it!  You know it is going to be spectacular! 

Here is the plan...
  • Cory said he is labeling and waxing the bottles this week sometime!
  • We will then get together and pick a date for the release in January!
  • Get ready BRC members, this will be released through the BREWard Club!  
  • We will do a release party and tasting with Cory King (owner and brewer of Side Project) when it arrives.
  • We will be getting 300 bottles.  So if you have been a member of the BRC and have not gotten any releases, we will make it further down the list with this exciting beer!

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

Deschutes The Abyss scheduled to hit sometime this week.   This will also go through the BRC.   Part will go though the top supporters and part will go through the top DESCHUTES supporters.  We will do the BRC report on Monday after this weekend.  

The Abyss

Deschutes The Abyss 2014 Reserve
A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate.  As for the great "drink it now or let it age" debate, we stand clearly on the fence. Distinct and delicious on release, the flavors meld and fuse into an entirely different pleasure a year on.
