From Jester King:
When our tasting room opens at 4pm on Friday, August 26th, we’ll be releasing 2016 Jester King 分 桃 (Fēn Táo). 分 桃 is our barrel aged sour beer fermented with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria, then refermented with fresh, Texas Hill Country peaches.
Our 2016 blend, like all our previous vintages, was refermented with peaches from Fredericksburg, Texas, located about 60 miles to the west of Jester King. It was brewed with raw, unfiltered well water, malted barley, wheat, oats, and hops, and then slowly matured in neutral oak barrels for about a year. After refermentation with fresh, Texas peaches, it was 100% naturally conditioned in bottles and kegs. At the time of packaging, 2016 分 桃 was 5.95% alcohol by volume, 14 IBU, 3.3 pH, and had a specific gravity of 1.002 (0.5 degrees Plato).
2016 分 桃 will be available at our tasting room by the glass and in bottles to go. We have about 1,600 bottles available (500ml/$20). The bottle limit is two (2) per customer per day. Aside from special events, 分 桃 will only be available at our tasting room.
