Jester King Craft Brewery

Funk'n Sour Gravity Fest at Jester King

On Saturday, October 29th from 1pm to 6pm we’ll close out Austin Beer Week 2011 with our first ever Funk’n Sour Gravity Fest at Jester King. We’ll have available an assortment of funky, sour beers from our barrel room that are naturally conditioned in German gravity kegs. We should be able to get a few guest beer gravity kegs as well, which we’ll keep you posted on. We’ll also have some funky, live music from local band D Madness Project, food from East Side Taco and a face painting booth. Here’s the beer that will be available as of now:

Boxer’s Revenge Wild Provision Ale – Franco-Belgian provision ale hopped with citrusy American hops and aged in wine barrels with wild yeast and bacteria. 9.4% ABV

Das Wunderkind! Wild Table Beer – A delicate farmhouse table beer with earthy hop flavor and a sour complexity from aging in French Oak wine barrels with wild yeast and bacteria. 4.5% ABV

Wild Commercial Suicide Dark Mild – English dark mild with bready, cocoa malt flavor and a complex sourness from aging in wild oak barrels for several months. 3.5% ABV

Farmhouse Wytchmaker Rye IPA – Jester King’s Wytchmaker Rye IPA fermented with French Saison yeast. Farmhouse esters and spices from the yeast meet a healthy dose of rye malt and lots of west coast hops. Dry and effervescent. 7.0% ABV

Farmhouse Black Metal Imperial Stout – Jester King’s Black Metal Imperial Stout fermented with French Saison yeast. Big flavors of roast and chocolate combined with smoke, warm alcohol and a farmhouse yeast character. 8.2% ABV

$10 gets you admission to the brewery grounds, parking, a tour of the brewery, a souvenir glass and free samples of all our farmhouse and wild beers. Costumes are encouraged since it’s the weekend before Halloween. Bonus points if you come dressed as one of the characters on our beer labels! We hope to see you!
