Jester King Brewery & Kitchen is proud to announce our participation in the #TexasBakersAgainstRacism Virtual Bake Sale!

Our partners at Barton Springs Mill donated one ton of flour to Texas bakers to support criminal justice and social reform, with 100% of virtual bake sale profits being donated to the movement. This Texas fundraising campaign was inspired by the Bakers Against Racism international fundraising efforts.

Today we're releasing a new beer we're calling our Dry-Hopped Oat Saison with Desert Yeast. This is the first beer we've fermented with a native yeast culture from Community Cultures Yeast Lab in San Antonio. We selected their Prickly Pear strain, which was harvested during the spring season in Lajitas, Texas near Big Bend National Park. The Prickly Pear strain is known for its bright, floral, citrus character and relatively high attenuation.

We decided to complement the native culture with a light, fluffy, medium-strength wort that features malted oats from our friends at TexMalt in Fort Worth. The malted oats were mixed with local two row malt from our longtime malt supplier Blacklands Malt in Leander, TX.

We dry-hopped this desert yeast oat saison fairly aggressively with Idaho 7, Citra, and El Dorado to create bright, tropical hop aromatics to complement the citrusy character of the native yeast. All in all, we think we've created a fun,...

Today at Noon we're releasing a variation on our Kvass. Instead of using sourdough bread in the mash like we typically do, we added cornbread to the mash baked in-house at Jester King Kitchen! Our Head Baker Jonathan Sanchez made several hundred pounds of his delicious cornbread for us to use. If you'd like to checkout Jonathan's process and recipe, here's a link to him explaining it on the local news.

We find the cornbread lends a pleasant textural character and subtle maize aroma. We fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture, which always lends natural variation to the beer. In this case, we get restrained fruity esters in the nose, which lend a slight sort of Trappist character. All in all, we find Cornbread Kvass to be one of the more unique beers we've made, while simultaneously presenting quite "clean" and drinkable. As time passes, the acidity and funk will certainly become more present.

Cornbread Kvass is 4.5% ABV. It was brewed in March and packaged in May. It was naturally...

Last Friday morning, the Governor issued an Executive Order requiring that restaurants with over 51% of their revenue from alcohol sales close by Noon. At Jester King, we are a brewpub (restaurant / brewery) with alcohol sales historically above this threshold. Therefore, we promptly closed.

We will be reopening this Wednesday, July 1st at 4pm. We will be ensuring that food sales constitute 51% of our onsite revenue. Ensuring this will effect the menu of beers available by the glass at Jester King. Aside from that, everything about our newly imagined park and picnic grounds will be the same in order to make Jester King as safe as possible to visit:

- All seating is outdoors and spaced across five areas covering 15 acres of Hill Country land

- We are open by reservation only with limited seating per session

In accordance with the Governor’s recent order closing Texas bars, Jester King is now closed to the public indefinitely. Our curbside pickup business will continue to be open 7 days a week from 12-8pm. . . We had worked very hard in May to create what we believe to be a safe experience and environment at Jester King. We re-opened with an outdoor-only, park and picnic ground model, available by reservation only, with hard closes between sessions for cleaning and sanitation. All guests were required to wear masks when not seated at their picnic tables, we abided by six feet social distancing guidelines, and we limited parties to six guest or fewer. . . Despite having worked very hard to create what we believe to be a safe environment, and frankly wishing that our outdoor park and picnic space setup was not lumped in with all bars, we acknowledge that we’re all in this together and will of course comply with the Governor’s order. . . We hope to re-open our reimagined space as soon as possible, and ask that you please continue to support Texas craft breweries by making purchases directly from their curbside setups. . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #timeplacepeople

In addition to our bottle conditioned version, we also have 120 bottles of "still" Moderne Dansk. Moderne Dansk is our barrel aged wild ale refermented with Danish Stevnsbær cherry juice from the Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin in Denmark! . . We chose to do a small run of still bottles because Moderne Dansk already presents very wine-like in character. We feel that it can be enjoyed still as well as "sparkling". . . "Still" Moderne Dansk will only be available by the bottle for our guests to enjoy onsite at Jester King (no to go sales). 750ml bottles are $35.

MODERNE DANSK BATCH 2 . . Today at Noon we're releasing Moderne Dansk Batch 2! Moderne Dansk is our barrel aged wild ale refermented with Danish Stevnsbær cherry juice from the renowned Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin in Denmark! . . We first experienced Frederiksdal wine at the Mikkeller Copenhagen Beer Celebration several years ago, and became instantly infatuated. The character of the cherries from the Frederiksdal estate was unlike anything we had experienced, and speaks to Frederiksdal's unique sense of place. Much like a chef presented with a really fantastic ingredient, we felt our job was to stand out of the way and let the character of the Stevnsbær cherry juice express itself. To this end, we simply took some mature, barrel aged beer from our cellar, added the cherry juice, let it referment to dryness, then bottle conditioned the result. Our influence on the finished beer is quite minimal, preferring for the terroir of the cherry juice to shine. . . Moderne Dansk Batch 2 was blended in March and bottled in May. Unlike for Batch 1, the base beer came from neutral oak barrels in our cellar, rather than barrels previously containing Frederiksdal wine. Batch 2 is 7.1% ABV and was packaged in kegs and 375ml bottles. We have about 3,000 bottles available for purchase ($20) with a bottle limit of 6. Please note that about 1,000 of the bottles were finished with just a cap instead of a cap and cork due to our bottle corker breaking during the bottling run. The lack of a cork should have no negative impact on quality. . . Batch 2 is available for curbside pickup starting today at Noon. To place an order, please follow the LINK IN OUR BIO. Moderne Dansk Batch 2 will also be available by the glass at Jester King for our onsite guests, as well as in bottles to go while supplies last. To make a reservation to come see us, please visit our website. . . Thank you very much to Harald Krabbe and Anne-Marie Skriver of Frederiksdal for the years of friendship and for sending us such fabulous cherry juice from their winery. We're honored to try to do it justice! . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #modernedansk #Frederiksdal #timeplacepeople @frederiksdalcherrywine
