Hope to Visit Brewery # 2 – Jester King

Jester King Brewery not only has widely renowned beers but they also have a farm, a kitchen and lodging, so of course it belongs on any beer fans bucket list to make a visit to Texas.

Here are a few of the beers that I would sample…

Grim Harvest – farmhouse ale fermented with blackberries

Figlet – farmhouse ale with smoked figs. collaboration with Franklin Barbecue

Dry Hopped Oat Saison – dry-hopped oat saison fermented with yeast harvested near Big Bend national park

and to top it off, a few tasters of their Spon series of beers.

More Pattinson

I am a fan of many things in #independent beer world and one of them is both the reverence and irreverence to old styles. American breweries will add anything and everything to Gose, IPA, Stouts and Saisons. But there is also an undercurrent of bringing back the classics in a more pure form.

So I was excited to see this label from Jester King

…that is made with noted beer historian Ron Pattinson. Who I hope will make more of these beers with many different breweries across the country. The future is limitless but the past can be mined for good beers too.
