Jester King Craft Brewery

Jester King Provenance Release

This weekend we’re releasing Batch 2 of Provenance — Orange & Grapefruit, and Batch 2 of Provenance — Lemon & Lime. Our Provenance beers are highly attenuated farmhouse ales brewed and fermented with winter citrus. The ingredients include Hill Country well water, malted barley, malted wheat, hops, brewer’s yeast, and native yeast and bacteria harvested from the land and air around our brewery. Citrus zest was added late in the boil and citrus juice was added during fermentation. All of the citrus was grown locally at G&S Groves and sourced from Johnson’s Backyard Garden.

Provenance — Orange & Grapefruit is 5.5% abv, 4.1 pH at the time of bottling, and has a finishing gravity of 1.003. Provenance — Lemon & Lime is 5.7% abv, 4.2 pH at the time of bottling, and has a finishing gravity of 1.002. Approximately 6,500 bottles of both beers are available (750ml x $12). There is no bottle limit, and both are likely to see distribution outside of the Jester King tasting room.

In addition to the bottle release, we will have a special barrel-aged version of Batch 1 Provenance on draught in our tasting room this weekend. Barrel-aged Provenance is a very small blend of Batch 1 Lemon & Lime and Batch 1 Orange & Grapefruit aged for about a year in the Mezcal barrels previously containing Encendia in 2013. It will be available on draught only. No bottles were packaged.

Unfortunately, this year we were not able to source the fruit necessary to make Provenance — Tangerine & Clementine.

Finally, bottles of our most recent batch of Commercial Suicide will also be on sale this weekend.
