2016 Montmorency vs. Balaton Release


Jester King-0063


This Friday, July 8th when our tasting room opens at 4pm, we’ll be releasing 2016 Montmorency vs. Balaton — our barrel aged sour beer refermented with cherries!


We’re going to try something new with this release. In an effort to try to cut down on the size of the initial push for bottles, and to give people who can’t make it to Jester King on Friday or Saturday a chance, we’re spreading the release across at least three days. We’ll have the following quantities of bottles and draught available on the upcoming weekend days:


Friday, July 8th — 1,000 bottles & four 50L kegs

Saturday, July 9th — 2,500 bottles & six 50L kegs

Sunday, July 10th — 1,000 bottles & two 50L kegs, plus any leftover bottles and/or draught


As you can see from the numbers above, we have a total of 4,500 bottles and twelve 50L kegs of 2016 Montmorency vs. Balaton. The bottle limit is two per customer per day. Bottles are $20 (500ml). Aside from special events, 2016 Montmorency vs. Balaton will not be available outside our tasting room.


We hope this plan gives people a little more flexibility in terms of getting bottles and/or draught. We’ll see how it goes. We’re not tied to this experiment and aren’t claiming it to be the new normal. We hope you enjoy our 2016 batch. We’re really pleased with how it turned out!
