2017 Jester King Kvass

Braindead 2-8437

This Friday, October 13th at 4pm, we’ll be releasing our 2017 batch of Kvass! Kvass is our farmhouse ale brewed with rye bread from Miche in Austin.

For this year’s Kvass, we added 300 pounds of rye bread (twice the amount as 2016) to a mash consisting of 60% Munich malt and 40% rye (malted, flaked, and raw). It was fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria. It was packaged on September 6, 2017 and naturally refermented in bottles and kegs. 2017 Kvass is 4.4% alcohol by volume, 26 IBU, 4.0 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.002 (0.5 Plato).

2017 Kvass will be available by the glass and in bottles to go in our tasting room. We have about 2,900 bottles available (750ml/$13), and there’s no bottle limit. We expect for some of 2017 Kvass to be distributed beyond our tasting room.
