Jester King / The Rare Barrel Phaenomena

We're excited to announce the release of Phaenomena, a collaboration with our dear, long-time friends at The Rare Barrel! The Rare Barrel is one of the American breweries we've had the most inspiration, support, and enjoyment from, and we're grateful to call them friends.

Phaenomena is a 100% spontaneously fermented beer aged in Cognac barrels! The beer itself took a meandering path to release. It was originally brewed in 2016 when our friends Jay Goodwin and Alex Wallash came to visit us. After a few years of maturation, we weren't thrilled with the results, so we decided to try again. Ultimately, the beer we finally blended this spring is one we're quite proud of and are excited for you to try.

Our brewing team gets notes of white pepper, Cognac, caramel apple, Crème Brûlée, and bicycle tire. 7.4 abv.

Phaenomena is now available at Jester King. Order online or visit us Wednesday to Friday. 903 bottles available (750ml/$30).
