Generational is our Barrel-Aged Stout collaboration with our dear friends at Half Acre Beer Company in Chicago Illinois. We have been huge fans of this brewery even before Side Project ever existed! To have the opportunity to spend the day with Gabe, Matt and Lee 2 years ago, brewing up this massive stout, was one of my favorite brew days to date. We merged aspects of our pinnacle stout recipes - Benthic for them (but without the adjunct addition) and O.W.K. for us (but without any vanilla bean addition). The result is an unadulterated, non-adjunct Barrel-Aged Stout that we felt best represented the collaboration of our creative minds and the quality we were striving for.
This recipe was all malt - no oats! This was something that the Half Acre crew brought to the table and is very rare for the Side Project barrel collection. The result is so awesome that we want to brew this again and add it to our barrel repertoire for blending in future blends! We also loved how the base beer matured, and we didn't make the call to "non-adjunct" this final beer until it reached maturity. After 2 years in Buffalo Trace barrels, the blending began and we all agreed that the best way to showcase this beer with you was just as is. Show Less
