Jester King makes it’s WNY debut at Thin Man on August 16
. We have 5 beers from the Austin, TX brewery that we’ll be pouring 5oz glasses of starting at 5pm.
Jester King, widely considered to be at the forefront of breweries in the USA, describe themselves as “An authentic farmhouse brewery committed to making wild ales and spontaneously fermented beers that reflect the unique character of our location in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Like the small farmhouse breweries that inspired us, we pursue beer making that involves time, patience, unique fermentation, full attenuation, and refermentation in the serving vessel. We use water from our well, locally grown and malted grains, and native wild yeast to make beer with a sense of place unique to our brewery.”
While we do have a good amount of each beer, quantities are limited. Please arrive to this unique event early to ensure the widest selection. These beers will not be available anywhere else in Western New York. This is a pay as you go event, no tickets required.
Autumnal Dichotomus 2015. 6.8%
Autumnal Dichotomous was brewed in September of 2015 with Hill Country well water, two-row malt, Munich malt, malted wheat, rolled oats, and hops. In late November, the beer was recirculated through cinnamon sticks and Satsuma zest and juice, and refermented for another two weeks. It was packaged on December 7th and 8th. Autumnal Dichotomous is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. It is 6.8% alcohol by volume, 28 IBU, 4.22 pH at the time of packaging, and has a finishing gravity of 1.002.
Biere de Miel. 6.1%
Our Bière de Miel is a dry, well attenuated, unspiced farmhouse ale brewed, fermented, and bottle conditioned with raw Texas wildflower honey. Naturally occurring wild yeast and bacteria impart a sense of place in this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100% bottle conditioned beer.
Noble King. 5.8%
Noble King is a medium strength, highly attenuated, unspiced farmhouse ale brewed with an abundance of noble hops and fermented with wild yeasts from the Texas Hill Country. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned.
Simple Means. 5.6%
The term “Altbier,” though classically associated with the copper ales of Düsselorf, can refer to any older-style beer in the German-speaking world. Both the use of smoked malts and mixed fermentation with native yeast and bacteria predate modern brewing techniques, lending flavors to our farmhouse altbier that are evocative of a simpler, much earlier time. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% bottle conditioned.
Le petit Prince. 2.9%
Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink. Le Petit Prince is a dry, unspiced, highly attenuated Table Beer unique to our land in the Texas Hill Country. Naturally occurring wild yeasts impart a sense of place to this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100% naturally conditioned ale.
