For many craft brewers, finding the perfect base imperial stout to build off of is an essential step. Side Project came up with the Vibes recipe and nearly every release that has added a layer to the big, bold stout has been a massive success. Coffee Shop Vibes might be the best of the bunch. It employs Colombian beans from Sump Coffee that are medium roasted for a reduced fruitiness and an added dose of chocolate and caramel. This elusive beer is released in limited batches that never last long.
