100Degrees-1.jpg

Back in July when it was blazing hot in Texas (it's the first day of Fall and it's still hot), we got the idea of making a nice, light refreshing farmhouse ale inspired by a Shandy cocktail we were serving. We came up with a recipe using lemon peel and ginger root, and we called the beer "100°" to coincide with some cool label art designed by Jester King Artist Katie Ross. In true Jester King fashion given the time it takes to make and...

For the hottest time of year, we brewed a...

VernalDichotomous-3 (1).jpg

2022 Vernal Dichotomous out now — our farmhouse ale inspired by the Central Texas spring season.

For this year's batch, we kept the recipe quite simple. We created a blend of farmhouse ale aged in oak barrels, then re-fermented the blend with sencha green tea. We sought to capture some of the herbaceous, earthy, floral character of the season in the form of a farmhouse ale. Like all our Dichotomous beers, they are created during the...

Today we're releasing our 2022 blend of Montmorency vs. Balaton! "MvB" is our barrel aged wild ale re-fermented with Montmorency and Balaton cherries from Michigan. 🍒 One of our running jokes at Jester King is, "What is your favorite fruit to ferment with beer, and why is it cherry?" Cherries are indeed hard to beat when it comes to fruit re-fermentation. We get delicious notes of cherry pie, cinnamon, and marzipan.

Chamango_IMG_3360.jpg

Introducing Chamango! This beer is inspired by the Mexican drink Mangonada or Chamango. It was brewed with tamarind, barrel-aged for over a year, re-fermented with mangos, then finished with additions of chamoy and Tajín. We get a nice mix of savory spice and tropical fruit character in a beer we find layered but quite drinkable. 7.6% abv.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to...

Our latest batch of Vague Recollection is now available! Inspired by the winemaking tradition of piquette, Vague Recollection is a farmhouse ale aged on the grape pomace from the 2021 harvest.

2021 was our second season of winemaking. We worked with Blanc du Bois, Syrah, Merlot, and Black Spanish grapes. After pressing the skins, we racked young farmhouse ale onto the pomace. After a few months of aging, we racked the beer off of the...
