We're very excited to release Liquid Bake Sale Imperial Babka Stout!
Liquid Bake Sale is brewed in support of the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, a non-profit group organized to advance small, independent brewers in Texas. The fundraiser features Texas-grown malt in partnership with TexMalt in Fort Worth.
For our Liquid Bake Sale beer, we created an imperial stout inspired by one of the favorite breads we bake at Jester King Bakery -- Babka! One of our Head Baker Jonathan Sanchez's (pictured below) first inspirations was Babka. We're excited to have turned this inspiration into liquid form!
We double-mashed a huge, sticky wort with TexMalt Wildfire Pale and San Jacinto Heritage Malt, a huge helping of double-roasted crystal malt, gobs of oats and raw wheat, brown sugar, milk sugar, and brioche bread! We fermented in stainless steel with the dark-fruity English yeast strain we love for our stouts, then added vanilla beans and cacao nibs in an effort to mimic the rich, scrumptious flavors and aromas of Babka!

We're grateful to be part of the Liquid Bake Sale. Thank you very much to our friends at the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, TexMalt, and our Head Baker Jonathan Sanchez!
