Our 2023 batch of Grim Harvest — farmhouse ale with blackberries — is now available at Jester King.
For Grim Harvest, we brew fresh wort with Hill Country well water, west Texas barley and wheat from TexMalt, fresh and aged hops, then ferment it on the blackberries from Nocturn Chrysalis (barrel-aged wild ale with blackberries). This second "maceration" of the fruit yields a more subtle fruit character, with elements of the base beer coming through more prominently. This blackberry farmhouse ale is mildly tart, effervescent from bottle conditioning, and has a present but restrained fruit character. It's an authentic representation of Texas farmhouse ale tied to time, place, and people.
Grim Harvest will be available onsite and online starting 5/12. Shipping/delivery illegal in Texas.
