Happy International Beer Day! We're excited to announce the return of Bitter Death -- our Extra Hoppy Belgian-Style Pale Ale. For our second batch, we've packaged it in 16oz. cans in addition to draft.
Dry, bitter, drinkable, low-to-moderate ABV with some interesting fermentation character — that's a key mantra of ours when it comes to beer. And that's what Bitter Death is all about. We brewed a 5.0% abv pale beer with San Jacinto 2-row malted barley and Denton County wheat malt from TexMalt, Perle, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, and Tettnanger hops. We fermented in stainless steel with Antwerp yeast from White Labs, as we really like the clean, crisp character we get from it with just a background note of fruity esters. After fermentation we dry hopped with more Hallertauer Mittelfrüh and Tettnanger. The result is beautiful, drinkable blend of herbal bitterness, crisp-cracker malt, and soft, mellow, subtle Belgian yeast character. This is definitely a beer profile we like to drink at Jester King, enjoy!
