2017 Ol' Oi — Sour Brown Ale

Jester King-0652 (1)

This Friday, May 12th at 4pm, we’re releasing 2017 Ol’ Oi — Barrel Aged Sour Brown Ale. This is our 5th ever blend.

Ol’ Oi is inspired by the barrel aged sour brown ales of East Flanders. It’s brewed with well water, Texas malted barley and malted wheat from Blacklands Malt, caramel malt, chocolate malt, and hops. It was fermented with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria. After an initial primary fermentation in stainless steel, it was fermented in neutral oak barrels for 8 to 14 months before blending and packaging. Ol’ Oi is 100% naturally refermented, unfiltered, and unpasteurized. The 2017 blend was packaged on March 8th, 2016. It’s 6.2 ABV, 1.004 specific gravity, 16 IBU, and 3.4 pH.

Ol’ Oi will be available by the glass at our tasting room, as well as at bottles to go. We have about 3,000 bottles available (750ml/$18). The bottle limit is 4 bottles per customer per day. At this point, we don’t anticipate Ol’ Oi will be available outside our tasting room, aside from special events.
