You won’t need to own a barrel to try Side Project Brewing’s newest release.
The beer is Pulling Nails Batch #7, a wild ale that is a blend made up of several different beers, including 42 percent that is composed of an beer that was both fermented and aged in Chardonnay barrels for more then two years while conditioning on Chardonel grapes from Missouri. The rest of the blend is made up of several different wild ales, all of which were aged in oak for three years.
Debuting in 2014, each of the blends for the Pulling Nails Series is different, and Side Project describes the project as an “ongoing experiment in the art of blending to create sour and wild ales of extraordinary depth, complexity and balance.”
According to a post on Side Project’s website, Pulling Nails Batch #7 is packaged in 750ml bottles ($35) and is on sale at the brewery now, with a purchase limit that will be based on the number of customers that show up for the release.
