Jester King Detritivore Batch 2

We’ll be releasing our second batch of Detritivore when our tasting room opens at 4pm on Friday, May 29th! Detritivore is made by taking the refermented cherries from Montmorency vs Balaton, and refermenting them a second time with young farmhouse ale fermented in stainless steel. While we enjoy the bright, jammy flavors and aromas of Montmorency vs Balaton, most of us here at Jester King prefer the more subtle, integrated fruit character in Detritivore. In fact, the combination of barnyard aromas from aged hops and fermentation with native yeast, with the soft tartness from a second fruit refermentation with native bacteria, yields one of our favorite beers.

Detritivore batch 2 will be available by the glass at our tasting room, as well as to go in 750ml bottles ($14/bottle, limit 2 per customer per day). Approximately 2,000 bottles are available. Aside from a few special events, we do not anticipate Detritivore being available outside of Jester King.
