Jester King Craft Brewery

First Delivery of Texas Malt from Blacklands

We are excited today to receive our first ever order of Texas malted barley and raw wheat! We received a delivery from Blacklands Malt located in Leander, Texas. Blacklands is the first ever micro-maltster in Texas. They produce brewing grains with barley and wheat grown in central Texas.

Making beer with a sense of place is of utmost importance to us and our beer making process. We use well water and naturally occurring wild yeast and bacteria captured from the air and land where our brewery is located to make beer with flavor and aroma derived from the Texas Hill Country. Adding barley and wheat grown and malted in central Texas to our beer making equation is something we’re very excited about!
