Featured Beer Releases
We're very excited to announce the release of Devin the Dude's Brew -- a German-style Pilsner brewed in collaboration with Omnipollo and legendary Houston hip hop artist Devin the Dude!
We've been friends and have had great admiration for Omnipollo, particularly co-founder Henok Fentie, for a long time. When talking collaboration with Henok, he asked if we'd be interested in brewing our version of Devin the Dude's Brew, Omnipollo's collaboration with hip hop pioneer Devin Copeland, aka Devin the Dude. When we heard this, we couldn't have been more excited. A good portion of our brewing team hails from Houston and have been life-long fans of Devin the Dude. Throw on top of that the chance to brew one of our most favorite styles of beer -- German-style Pilsner -- and we were completely stoked.

We're pleased to introduce Jester King Spinning Away -- a collaboration with Southold Farm + Cellar in Fredericksburg, Texas!
Spinning Away is 100% spontaneously fermented by the native yeast in Southold's Hill Country vineyard. It was fermented and slowly matured for two years in oak barrels, then 100% naturally conditioned.
Expressing the character of native microflora is a passion of ours, which we've been pursuing for over a decade. One of our favorite ways to go about this is to place our coolship in a Hill Country vineyard, fill it with unfermented beer, then collect ambient yeast right out of the air. The fermentation is entirely spontaneous with no yeast or other microbes added. Nature ferments the beer completely on its own, which harkens back to some of the earliest forms of brewing. We pursue this technique today to create beer that's uniquely tied to a time, place, and people.
Spinning Away is our effort to reflect the microflora unique to Souldold Farm + Cellar. We've been friends with Southold --...more

We're very excited to introduce Jester King Recentered -- a collaboration with our friends at Pinthouse Brewing in Austin, Texas! A hybrid of Belgian-style Grissette and American Hazy IPA, Recentered combines breadiness, crispness, and drinkability from Grissette with the incredible tropical fruit and berry hop character from the hop magicians at Pinthouse!

We're very excited to introduce Jester King Bitter Death -- Extra Hoppy Belgian-Style Pale Ale!
Our motivations in presenting this beer are straightforward and selfish. For over a decade, we've had a great affinity for well-attenuated, crisp, hoppy, herbal ales with subtle but interesting pure culture fermentation character. With our pure culture fermentation program having taken flight in 2020, we were inspired to make a beer in this fashion.
Bitter Death was brewed with Texas malted barley and wheat from TexMalt and a touch of flaked oats. It was hopped aggressively at nearly 3 pounds per barrel with Perle, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, and Tettnanger. We probably were more aggressive with the hopping than tradition would dictate, but dry, herbal, and bitter was our M.O. here. Fermented down to 1.2 Plato (1.002) with Antwerp Ale Yeast. 43 IBU. 4.5 pH. 5.4% abv. 100% naturally conditioned.
We get notes of white tea, dried hydrangea petals, bread dough, Texas toast, Euro-skunk, cannabis, dehydrated lime citrus wheels, caraway, and walking through the Hill Country on...more
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...more
