Side Project Pulling Nails Blend 1 Coming Soon
St. Louis’ Side Project Brewing is gearing up for another bottle release, featuring the first installment in a new series, Pulling Nails. Dreamt up by Brewmaster Cory King, each of these blended beers will “explore the art of blending to create beers with extraordinary depth, complexity and balance.”
UPDATE 1/30: Pulling Nails Blend #1 and a new batch of Le Saisonnier will both be released on Saturday, February 1 at noon in the Perennial tasting room.
- Spontaneous Wild (Lambic-style, native microflora from my family’s farm) – aged 25 months in French Oak White Wine (bright citric acid, mushroomy, musty)
- Flanders Red – aged 18 months in American Oak Chambourcin Barrels (tart candy, robust oak, big acid, very light acetic)
- Saison du Fermier – aged 9 months in American Oak Chardonnay Barrels (citrus and orchard fruit, billowy, delicate)
- Saison de Rouge – aged 6 months in American Oak Chambourcin Barrels (Amarillo hopped, pear notes, 100% house Brett)
King has also heard the clamoring for Side Project stemware, which will be released at one of the area’s top bottle shops, The Wine & Cheese Place. Tickets for a special release and tasting party sold out immediately but additional glasses can be ordered here.
