    Thought I'd take the opportunity to create the new thread for Side Project (and Shared) for 2019.


    For more on Shared vs Side Project, the original blog post regarding Shared is here

    2018 saw the release of 13 375s, including the return of Fuzzy; new blends of the first 4 fruited Fermiers (Apricot, Peche, Framboise, Bleuet); 5 new Derivations and the new batch of BBT & Anabasis amongst others. Can't wait to see what 2019 brings!

    They haven't said anything yet, just teased it again with a photo of the coconut flakes on the Shared instagram the other day. Figure it'll be silent / last minute if it's a normal to-go release.

    Based upon SP’s IG story i’d say Tete is being waxed today. Total guess though.

    They posted about blending the new batch back in August, so Tete would be my (total) guess as well

    true. and i thought it could be BA coconut vibes. however, it seems like the white wax is typically reserved for sours (although i know D2 was white wax)

    What does stout week at Side Project usually entail? Big on-site bottle selection? Releases for to-go? Never been there for one of them.

    Last year was primarily increased on-site selection - blog post about it is here Haven't made it down myself but I think the weekend on-site bottles were the highlight from what I heard

    There wasn't any new to-go release for stout week last year

    When the "Candles" series is on tap, it's always worth the drive. Fingers crossed.

    The most recent blend of Merci seems to be showing up at a few beer bars around St. Louis (Itap, some of the Baileys joints).

    This is the first time I've ever seen SP available elsewhere. Anybody have any insight? Just a glut of Merci, or is this an ongoing expansion of SP into area bars?

    I've seen La Ruche b1 at Sidney Street Cafe. I think it was $40. That was about 9 months ago.

    It was a collab with TWCP and they still have a ton on the shelves there. I can only assume an agreement was worked out by TWCP to unload some of it.

    no, i get that. it’s just that to my knowledge OP isn’t like an inside source of info on SP / Shared and his post contained no supporting documentation or evidence that it wasn’t just some bro talking out his A on the internet. which is totally cool. that’s what the internet is for. i certainly wasn’t calling them out or calling them a liar, but again, post made no mention of “per cellar chalkboard” or “per cellar menu” and it was posted at like 5:15 so i was just curious as to whether there wasn’t any proof behind it. that also why the LOL reply befuddled me a bit. but i certainly wasn’t trying to offend anyone or call anyone out.

    happy stout week!
