6 grain saison-10-1 (1).jpg

Today we're releasing a more recent favorite of ours — Hoppy 6 Grain Saison!

This beer is fairly new (batch 2), but it relates back to the origins of farmhouse ale at Jester King. Mineral-rich water, combined with a rustic malt character, herbal/spicy hoppiness, and wild fermentation is our main calling card. To achieve a rustic malt character, we brewed with malted barley, rye, spelt, and wheat, naked oats, and unmalted purple corn....

Today we're releasing our 2022 batch of Jester King Colour Five!

Colour Five is our barrel-aged wild ale re-fermented with Texas blueberries grown at Echo Springs Farm in Murchison, Texas near Dallas. We love fermenting them with our barrel-aged beer because the blueberries are highly aromatic (think blueberry yogurt) and mild in acidity. The result is a highly drinkable beer bursting with jammy aromas.

This is our 7th batch. Be...

La Vie en Rose is a farmhouse ale re-fermented on the raspberries from Jester King Atrial Rubicite.
