UPDATE 16 Mar 2017 from Jester King:

We’re pleased to introduce Jester King / Freigeist Sing•along Deathmatch — a farmhouse ale brewed with rosemary smoked honey from Stiles Switch BBQ, refermented with Mexican plums!

Last August, our good friend Sebastian Sauer of
Freigeist Bierkultur in Köln, Germany came to visit us at Jester King. We brewed a medium strength wort with water, barley, wheat, rye, and hops, then added rosemary smoked honey to the boil. Prior to the brew day, we took Texas wildflower honey to Stiles Switch BBQ in Austin and smoked the honey in their pits over rosemary sprigs. We then added the rosemary smoked honey late in the boil. After fermenting in a stainless steel tank for a few weeks, we took Mexican plums, de-pitted and pureed them in-house, and refermented them with the beer. The beer was then packaged in September and naturally conditioned in bottles and kegs.

Sing•along Deathmatch is 5.6% alcohol by volume, 45 IBU, and has a pH of 3.7. Its finishing gravity is 0.999 (-0.3 degrees Plato). The label art was designed by Josh Cockrell. Sing•along Deathmatch is our second collaboration with Freigeist, following Sauer Power in 2012.

It will be released at Jester King at 4pm on Friday, March 17th and will be available by the glass and in bottles to go. About 2,000 bottles are available (750ml / $16 / no bottle limit). Aside from special events and keg tappings, it will only be available at Jester King.
