After a long hiatus, we're happy to release a new batch of Jester King Mad Meg Farmhouse Provision Ale!
Mad Meg is a Franco-Belgian inspired "bière de provision," which means beer for keeping or storing. Provision ales were typically higher in alcohol and cellared for longer periods of time than their lower abv counterparts. Jester King Mad Meg is a simple beer with well water, Texas barley and wheat, and organic Fuggle and Perle hops. It was fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and wild yeast, then naturally conditioned in kegs and 750ml bottles.
The name “Mad Meg” refers to a peasant woman from Flemish folklore, also known as “Dulle Griet” or “Dull Gret,” who leads an army of women to pillage hell. She’s famously depicted in Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s 1562 painting by the same name.
Available Thursday, 1/12 onsite and online for pickup at the link: https://bit.ly/3GVa6Oz. We have about 4,200 bottles available. 11 bottle limit per person. Shipping/delivery illegal in Texas.
