We're happy to introduce New Clear Fishin' -- Two-year-old spontaneously fermented beer brewed with heather, myrica gale, gentian root, & meadowsweet in collaboration with Cambridge Brewing Co.!
Back in the fall of 2018, we were visited by the legendary Will Meyers of Cambridge Brewing Co. in Cambridge, MA. Will is one of the pioneers of barrel-aged wild beer in America having started his program at Cambridge in 1998. We were inspired by Will's program and beers when we began making barrel-aged wild beers ourselves in 2010.
We brewed the wort in November 2018 with Blacklands Pale Moon and Brownfield 10 malted barley, spelt, rye, oats, East Kent Golding and Fuggle hops, heather, myrica gale, gentian root, and meadowsweet. We let the wort chill overnight in our coolship to collect native microflora before 100% spontaneous fermentation and two-year maturation in oak. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned. 4.4% abv.
778 bottles available (750ml/$22). No limit. Proxies welcome (please designate). Order to go or visit our brewery, kitchen, and farm in the Texas Hill Country on the outskirts of Austin (https://jesterkingbrewery.com/)!
We want to graciously thank Will and his crew at Cambridge Brewing for the years of inspiration and friendship!
