Recentered was mashed with Texas malted barley from TexMalt and malted, flaked, and raw wheat. It was kettle hopped with Pinthouse's selections of Mosaic, Mosaic cryo, and HBC 630, and dry hopped with Strata, Sultana, HBC 586, and more Mosaic cryo.

We're very excited to announce Jester King Hemp Balm from Jester King Farm!
After hemp growing was legalized in Texas, we became one of the first licensed growers in our state. We harvested the hemp from our inaugural crop planted last summer at Jester King, and we processed it into CBD oil with the help of our friends from Sweet Sensi in Austin. We combined the CBD oil with local goat's milk, beeswax, juniper, rosemary, and other plant remedies to make a topical balm for treating body aches and inflammation. Each jar is 3.2 oz. and contains 1,000 MG of CBD. Please keep refrigerated.
Jester King Hemp Balm is on sale now! Order to go at www.jesterkingbrewery.com or visit our brewery, kitchen, and farm in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the edge of Austin.

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
