Meet Deconstructed Dessert: A New Barrel-Aged Series for 2020-2021

Our In the Spirit Barrel-Aged Series is about to get more decadent. This year we will replace our Haunted Barrel Candy Bar Porter and Nexus of the Universe Russian Imperial Stout with a brand-new barrel-aged beer called Deconstructed Dessert.

For our first trick, we will deconstruct a Mocha Pie dessert into 6 variant beers, released over a 3-month period. If you have ever had a Mocha Pie dessert, you know you are in for a treat. Our version is a creamy chocolate, vanilla, and coffee-filled pie with a sweet graham cracker crust.

Beer Details

The variants will start with the pure 6-month bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout with no adjuncts: The Beer.

Single ingredient variants: The Chocolate, The Vanilla, The Graham Cracker Crust and The Coffee will follow. The collection will be capped with The Mocha Pie, a final stout that brings all the ingredients together. The Deconstructed Dessert series will highlight how additions to barrel-aged beers can change the flavor experience and should provide plenty of dessert-filled fun!

We will release Deconstructed Dessert: Mocha Pie over a 3-month period, starting with “The Beer” on Black Friday, November 27 and finishing with “The Mocha Pie” on Saturday February 6th.

Members should pick up each variant on its release weekend. Members are welcome to order additional 4-packs with the general public as they are released but this perk allows members to guarantee themselves one of each without worrying about individual variants selling out quickly.

Member Mocha Pie Packages will also open for sale November 11th.  Go to www.thirdspacebrewing.com/mythirdspaceclub to learn more about the many perks of being a My Third Space Club Member.

No Parking Lot/Line Parties Please

Due to COVID-19 we cannot allow any guests to pre-party on our property for release days. Our tap room and beer garden will open at 12:00 p.m. on each release day with plenty of tables separated 6ft apart. All current COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place so please plan accordingly (groups limited to 6, masks required, must be seated to enjoy a beer, etc.) Thank you for your understanding.

Pre-Orders Encouraged

Advanced online sales are encouraged to eliminate any standing in line at our tap room. If beers do not sell out in advance, they will be available on the release date for In-Person sales or Curbside Pickup. We will also tap a limited quantity of each variant on its release date. Stop down for a taste when you pick up your beer!

Any pre-order not picked up by 5:00 p.m. Sunday following the release may be re-released for public sale.

Please note that your online order is only a reservation and you must be 21+ to order or complete a transaction. When you arrive to pick up your beer you will need to show your purchase confirmation and your ID. At that point we will complete your transaction in-person. No proxy pick-ups are permitted.

Other 2020-2021 Barrel-Aged Beers

Haunted Barrel and Nexus of the Universe may be going away this year, but Mystic Knot will return in March.

We will also have some smaller releases of some other special barrel-aged beers throughout the season. The first two, will be released along with Mocha Pie: The Beer on Black Friday. They include:

Double Barrel Nexus of the Universe – Rum

Okay we lied a little bit. The only Nexus of the Universe coming out this year is a double barrel-aged version and quantities are limited. We took the 2019 Nexus of the Universe that aged in brandy and bourbon and aged it again in a rum barrel. This is the last Nexus of the Universe release planned for the foreseeable future and it is going to be a delight.

Bourbon Barrel Braggot

Last year we brewed a collaboration with our friends at Eagle Park, a braggot (a unique beer/mead hybrid). We aged the braggot for over a year in a bourbon barrel and it’s now ready to enjoy!

Mark Your Calendars!

Mark your calendars for November 14 to pre-order the first Deconstructed Dessert, Double Barrel Nexus, and Bourbon Barrel Braggot. And we will see you for pickup and a pour Thanksgiving weekend!

Pickup for all 3 of these beers will start Black Friday at noon but pre-orders can be picked up through Sunday November 29.
