Balaton by Side Project Brewing in Missouri, United States

About Balaton by Side Project Brewing

Balaton is a Wild Missouri Brown Ale that was fermented in and aged in local Chambourcin Barrels with Missouri microflora for over a year with Michigan Balaton Cherries. Side Project Brewing wanted Balaton to be soft, yet complex, so it is only 5% abv with a higher level of Brett influence and more impactful oak presence to balance out the signature Side Project acidity and the tart, cinnamon notes of the cherries.


A 100% barrel-aged, mostly barrel-fermented project. Passion & experimentation drive the creation of rustic Saisons, Wild Ales & spirit barrel-aged ales.
