Fresh off the canning line is our latest IPA -- Satsumas 4 Sale DDH Hazy IPA with Citra, Ekuanot, Mosaic Cryo, and freshly juiced and zested Texas Satsuma Mandarins!
Our brewing team took 400 pounds of Texas-grown Satsuma Mandarins from K and H Farms in Poteet, Texas and juiced and zested them by hand! The zest and juice went into the beer just before canning along with a big double dry hop of Citra, Ekuanot, Mosaic Cryo. Our brewing team gets flavors and aromas of papaya, orange sherbert, drippy palm sap, gummy bears, piña colada, mimosa, and candied orange zest!

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
We're pleased to introduce Keel Cut Foudre-Aged IPA, a collaboration with Bird's Fly South Ale Project!
To create Keel Cut, we brewed a resinous, pillowy IPA with malted barley and malted oats from TexMalt, then fermented it in one of our oak foudres with our mixed culture of native microflora. We then let the beer age for about four months in the foudre to allow the microflora to create new flavors and transform the hop compounds. Finally, we finished it with an aggressive dry-hop of bright, tropical Australian Vic Secret before canning it!
Keel Cut is our first mixed fermentation beer released in cans! It was canned today (01.21.21) and is available to drink at Jester King or take to go (https://jesterkingbrewery.com/). Sixteen-ounce four-packs are $16. We have about 200 cases available. No purchase limit. Proxies welcome. Unfortunately, no shipping or...more

We're pleased to introduce Jester King Barrel Aged Wild Ale with Jambolan Plums!
Finding interesting Texas fruits and fermenting them with our beer is perhaps our favorite thing to do at Jester King. In this case, we found a new fruit we'd never worked with before grown in southern Texas -- Jambolan plums! Native to India, Burma, Ceylon and the Andaman Islands, the Jambolan plums we worked with were grown at Paradise Gardens in Los Fresnos, Texas.
We took mature barrel aged wild ale and refermented it with Jambolan plums at around 2-3 pounds per gallon. Once the fruit refermentation reached total dryness, we naturally conditioned the beer in bottles and kegs (6.6% abv). The plums deliver quite a unique flavor and aroma! We get a lovely mix of jammy, seedy, wintergreen, and sloe gin character.
Barrel Aged Wild Ale with Jambolan Plums is now available for online ordering and pickup at Jester King. Here's the link to our website for ordering:...more
