Saturday, September 15th from 1 to 4pm at Jester King will be our release party for Buddha’s Brew, our collaboration beer brewed with Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.
Buddha’s Brew is a 4.7% alcohol by volume sour wheat ale fermented entirely in oak barrels and blended with Buddha’s Brew Kombucha. It’s the first Jester King beer to be fermented entirely in oak. We racked unfermented wort directly into oak barrels and inoculated it with souring bacteria. From there, it spent nine months aging in our barrel room before being blended with live Kombucha from Buddha’s Brew at bottling. Like all our beer, it’s unfiltered, unpasteurized & naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.
The folks from Buddha’s Brew will be on hand pouring their Kombucha. We’ll have live music from the The McMercy Family Band and food from Chi’Lantro. We’ll also be selling these American Apparel Jester King Buddha’s Brew t-shirts for $20.
Unfortunately Texas law prevents us from selling bottles of Buddha’s Brew at the release party. Check out Open the Taps, the grassroots movement working to peel back the laws and regulations that are holding back Texas beer. Buddha’s Brew will be available for purchase in kegs, casks and bottles in the days and weeks following the release at bars, restaurants, and stores in Texas.
