We're pleased to introduce Jester King Viridium — 100% spontaneously fermented beer brewed with toasted yaupon, juniper, and rosemary. All of the herbs were foraged from the land surrounding the brewery.
We first brewed a batch of Viridium in 2019, and then we brewed another batch in 2020. After the beer matured in oak barrels for two to three years, we blended it with some one-year-old spontaneous beer in our cellar. The blend was then naturally conditioned through re-fermentation in bottles and kegs. 4.9%
Viridium is somewhat reminiscent to us of Abscission — our foraged spontaneous beer brewed in collaboration with Scratch Brewing Co. in 2016.
Visit Jester King this week to get a glass or purchase bottles to go (750ml/$36). Also available for pickup here: https://bit.ly/3zJKQHF. We have about 400 bottles available. 11 bottle limit per person. Shipping/delivery illegal in Texas.
