Beers of the Week: Jester King
All hail Jester King, the Austin home of mixed culture and spontaneously fermented farmhouse brews. Taking inspiration from the prolific farmhouse breweries around Europe, this Texan brewery utilises local grains, water, hops, fruits, vegetables, foraged plants, native yeasts, and bacteria to craft beers that speak of place, time, and people. These are incredibly unique beers that can be hard to get your hands on – which is why we’re quite excited to have them in store!
A dry farmhouse style beer with the addition of citrus zest. This has a unique character, with the zest being added prior to fermentation – this means the zest is munched up by yeasts and bacteria, allowing the fruit to become something greater than the sum of its parts!
Colonel Toby, $25
Hoppy farmhouse ale/saison, coming in at a deliciously session-able 3.4% abv. Rolled oat additions add a nice subtle creaminess, while Cascade, Citra, and Centennial hops bring resin and refreshing aromatics.
Super Ultramega Magnum (1.5L), $60
Who could say it better than the brewers themselves? “Intergalactic farmhouse ale with ginger, salt, and tarragon – re-fermented with cantaloupe”. Get on board for a wild ride!
Vague Recollection, $38
Wild-fermented sour beer that’s been aged on Sangiovese and Tempranillo grape skins, seeds, stems, and pulp. Fruit, funk, and good times.
Black Metal Farmhouse Imperial Stout, $36
Black farmhouse ale hopped with piney & citrusy American hops, aged on Spanish cedar spirals, and bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces yeast. Dry, dark, and delicious.
