Our latest SPON release is 2020 Shiso & Fuyu Persimmon!
We created a blend of three-year-old and two-year-old 100% spontaneously fermented beer matured in oak, then refermented it with hand-processed, Texas-grown Fuyu Persimmons from Lightsey Farms in Mexia, Texas near Waco. We complemented the tangy, sweet character of the persimmons with the earthy, herbaceous character of Red Shiso. Our brewing team gets notes of lemon verbena, Orange Tang, Sweet Tarts, red bean ice cream, musty cellar, and authentic Belgian Gueuze. Unfiltered. Naturally conditioned. 1.005 FG. 6.9% abv. 11 IBU. 3.6 pH.

We're very excited to release Balcones Bourbon Barrel Aged Moderne Dansk!
This is the double-barrel-aged version of Jester King Moderne Dansk! We aged wild beer in neutral oak wine barrels for a year, refermented with Danish Stevnsbær cherry juice from Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin in Denmark, then aged the beer for another year in Bourbon Whisky barrels from our good friends at Balcones Distilling in Waco, Texas! The sweet and savory character from the Stevnsbær cherry juice is simply unrivaled in our opinion, and the bourbon character from the Balcones barrels takes this beer to a whole new level!
Expect notes of Luxardo Maraschino Cherries, Old Fashioned, Cherry Heering, Hershey's KISSES filled with cherry cordial, Big Red soda, and Bananas Foster sauce. 9.1% abv.

We're excited to introduce Citrus Froot Direct -- Triple Dry Hopped Farmhouse IPA with Texas Dancy Mandarins & Hamlin Oranges!
We brewed a dextrinous wort with raw wheat and flaked oats over a base of TexMalt San Jacinto 2-Row and Wildfire Pale Malt. We then pitched our mixed culture in stainless steel with a bio-trans dry hop of Ekuanot and Amarillo. Following primary, we refermented the beer with fresh, hand-juiced Dancy Mandarins & Hamlin Oranges from Orange Blossom Farm in Utopia, Texas west of San Antonio. We then dry hopped the beer two more times with Ekuanot and Sabro cryo before adding the hand-processed zest from the mandarins and oranges! 100% naturally conditioned in bottles and kegs. 6.6% abv.
Our brewing team put a lot of love into this beer by hand-processing 800 pounds of locally grown Texas citrus! This ode to Texas citrus has notes of Orangina, mimosa, honeysuckle, orange blossom perfume, Painkiller cocktail, and Lacto-fermented orange marmalade.

We're happy to introduce New Clear Fishin' -- Two-year-old spontaneously fermented beer brewed with heather, myrica gale, gentian root, & meadowsweet in collaboration with Cambridge Brewing Co.!
Back in the fall of 2018, we were visited by the legendary Will Meyers of Cambridge Brewing Co. in Cambridge, MA. Will is one of the pioneers of barrel-aged wild beer in America having started his program at Cambridge in 1998. We were inspired by Will's program and beers when we began making barrel-aged wild beers ourselves in 2010.
We brewed the wort in November 2018 with Blacklands Pale Moon and Brownfield 10 malted barley, spelt, rye, oats, East Kent Golding and Fuggle hops, heather, myrica gale, gentian root, and meadowsweet. We let the wort chill overnight in our coolship to collect native microflora before 100% spontaneous fermentation and two-year maturation in oak. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned. 4.4% abv.
778 bottles available (750ml/$22). No limit. Proxies...more
