Bottle Release: Familiar Faces & Madeline

Fall has arrived, and so has our newest PSL-inspired imperial stout. Also making its sixth return is everybody’s favorite barrel-aged mixed fermentation saison.

The bottles will be released on Thursday, October 14th at all four taproom locations as well as for California shipping. Check out all the details below.





Imperial Stout with Pumpkin, Spices, Coffee, & Lactose
11% ABV

Introducing Familiar Faces, our adult alternative to the PSL. This imperial stout is made with organic Sugar Pie pumpkins from J.R. Organics in Escondido, a bevy of autumnal spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger), a blend of Brazilian and Colombian coffee roasted by Steady State, and lactose. The addition of lactose contributes to a silky mouthfeel and full body, and its taste is akin to perfectly steamed latte milk. With flavors reminiscent of a freshly baked pumpkin roll, milk chocolate, and warm baking spices, this imperial stout tastes like fall.

Available October 14th at 9am.



Oak Barrel-Aged Mixed Fermentation Saison
7% ABV

We proudly present our sixth batch of Madeline, one of the very first beers we ever brewed at Pure Project. Inspired by the rustic farmhouse saisons of Belgium, Madeline is a blend of mixed fermentation saisons aged in French oak barrels. We started with one base beer, separated it to barrel-age with three different mixed cultures, and then blended these three beers back into the final product in bottles. One of the cultures we use is a native California wild yeast, domesticated from unpasteurized apple juice from Northern California. The cultures in Madeline have changed a bit over time, but they ultimately produce a light and effervescent brew with classic essences of farmhouse funk. Golden straw in color, batch #6 is complemented by aromas and flavors of hay, white peach, and light lemon acidity over a beautiful background of oak.
