Jester King Releases Two Newbies This Friday!

 
 

 

This Friday, September 15th at 4pm, we’ll be releasing our 2017 blends of 分 桃 (Fēn Táo) and Aurelian Lure! 分 桃 (Fēn Táo) is our barrel aged sour beer refermented with Texas peaches, and Aurelian Lure is our barrel aged sour beer refermented with California apricots.

For this year’s 分 桃 (Fēn Táo), we added 2,000 pounds of Texas-grown Ranger peaches to about 700 gallons of mature, barrel-aged sour (ratio of about 2.9 pounds per gallon). The peaches came from Noble Farms near Lubbock, Texas. In past years, we’re received peaches from the Texas Hill Country. However, this year a mild winter led to a very paltry harvest. While it was unfortunate that the Hill Country crop didn’t pan out this year, we’re really excited about the quality, flavor, and aroma of the peaches from Noble Farms! They led to a really great batch of 分 桃 (Fēn Táo).

This is our fourth-ever blend of 分 桃 (Fēn Táo). It is 6.1% alcohol by volume, 1.000 specific gravity (0 Plato), 10 IBU, and 3.4 pH. It was packaged on August 6th, 2017. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (500ml/$20). We have about 3,000 bottles available (limit 3 per customer per day). Outside of special events, 2017 分 桃 (Fēn Táo) will only be available at Jester King.

For 2017 Aurelian Lure, we refermented over 2,000 pounds of Patterson apricots from Blossom Hill in Callifornia with about 765 gallons of mature, barrel aged sour beer (~2.7 pounds per gallon ratio). This is our fifth-ever blend of Aurelian Lure. It is 5.8% alcohol by volume, 1.002 specific gravity (0.5 Plato), 6 IBU, and 3.4 pH. It was packaged on July 25th, 2017. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (500ml/$20). We have about 4,500 bottles available (limit 3 per customer per day). Outside of special events, 2017 Aurelian Lure will only be available at Jester King.
