We're pleased and excited to announce 2018 SPON Estate Peach — our first-ever beer refermented with fruit grown at Jester King!
Back in 2014, we planted a peach tree right next to the brewery. We don't actually know what variety of peach tree it is, but we do know it's an early fruiting tree. Its peaches are low in sugar content, high in acidity, and very aromatic. We've watched the tree slowly grow over the past four years. It has taken a beating from high winds and deer eating its leaves, but has still managed to survive. Within the last two years, it has felt like the tree has been on fast-forward growth. We just looked up one day and saw a fully-grown, robust peach tree right beside the brewery.
