Jester King Craft Brewery

Montmorency vs Balaton Blend 2 Release This Weekend



We will be releasing our second ever blend of Montmorency vs Balaton when our tasting room opens at 4pm on Friday, March 20th. It will be available by the glass and to go in 500ml bottles ($16, limit 1 per customer per day). Approximately 3,000 bottles are available. Aside from special events, Montmorency vs Balaton blend 2 will only be available at our tasting room.

Like the first blend, Montmorency vs Balaton blend 2 was brewed with Texas Hill Country well water, malted barley, malted wheat, raw wheat, and hops. It was fermented in neutral oak barrels with Jester King’s unique mixed culture of brewer’s yeast and native yeast and bacteria harvested from the air and wildflowers around our brewery. It was then refermented with Montmorency and Balaton cherries from Michigan. Blend 2 is 6.7% alcohol by volume, 3.36 pH, 10 IBU, and has a finishing gravity of 1.005 (1.3 degrees Plato). We have already begun a second refermentation of the cherries from Montmorency vs Balaton blend 2 to make our second batch of Detritivore.
