We’re happy to announce the release of a brand new beer -- Mr. Mingo, a farmhouse ale with roselle hibiscus. The inspiration was to make a simple beer with a subtle adjunct.
To make Mr. Mingo, we brewed a simple saison with barley and wheat from Blacklands Malt and raw Texas Hill Country water from our onsite well. We added hibiscus flowers at the end of the boil and then later dry hopped with more. In total, we used around 1 pound of hibiscus per barrel.
Mr. Mingo has an ABV of 5.9% and will be released this Thursday at 4pm when the Tasting Room & Kitchen opens. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750mL/$13). Around 4,500 bottles were made with no bottle limit. This beer will see distribution.
