If you know me, you know I’m a bit opinionated. You also know that I love to share my opinions, often whether you want to hear them or not. One of the drums I’ve been beating for quite some time is how lucky we are to have the Side Project Cellar in our own backyard.
While it’s cool to have a place to enjoy Side Project beer on a regular basis, what truly sets the Cellar apart for me is the level of love and passion they put into the treatment of beer. Think through how they’ve set up their beer program and find me another equal within 300 miles.
Let’s run down the list:
They serve their draft beers at three different temperatures to provide the perfect beer, ready to drink. They have top-of-the-line glassware giving each beer a proper pour. All of their lambics are served in lambic baskets giving you that unique old-world experience each time you order a bottle. All of their bottles beers are served at cellar temperature. And if that wasn’t enough they have an outstanding wine and whiskey selection as well.
Well, we weren’t the only ones to recognize what and awesome treasure we have, the 2016 James Beard Foundation Awards nominations were announced today and Side Project Cellar was nominated nationally for Outstanding Bar Program.
This is a huge, huge, huge honor and something everyone at Side Project Cellar should be very proud off. I can’t say enough how proud I am of Karen King and her staff and how much they deserve this nomination. Congrats to all of you!
