Jester King Cherry Grisette

Today we're pleased to release our next fruited Grisette! Our latest is with Montmorency and Balaton cherries! We added equal parts of each variety to Grisette-style beer at a ratio of about 1.25 pounds per gallon. Our goal was to make a very drinkable beer, low in acidity, with present but not overwhelming fruit character. With an emphasis on balance and drinkability, we primary-fermented the Grisette in stainless steel for a few weeks, then added the cherries for secondary fermentation in stainless as well. Our intent is for our fruited-Grisettes to be enjoyed fresh, while the fruit character is still vibrant and the fermentation character is "clean".

Cherry Grisette is 5.3% abv. It's unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. It's available for online ordering and pickup at Jester King now. Here's the link to order: We have about 5,000 bottles (750ml/$18). No purchase limit. Only available at Jester King. Proxies welcome (please designate when ordering). A portion of the batch will see distro. Texas law unfortunately doesn't allow us to ship or deliver.

Please make a reservation to visit our beautiful setting in the Texas Hill Country on the outskirts of Austin! We're open Wednesday to Sunday:
