Jester King Introduces Calvados Barrel Aged Aurelian Lure & Cherry Funk Metal!

imageWe brought you an early peek at both of these, and now the full details from Jester King:

We’re excited to announce the release of two new beers this weekend — Calvados Barrel Aged Aurelian Lure and Cherry Funk Metal! Calvados Barrel Aged Aurelian Lure is 2016 Aurelian Lure aged in Calvados (apple brandy from the Normandy region of France) barrels. Cherry Funk Metal is 2017 Funk Metal refermented with Balaton cherries.

Last year when we were making 2016 Aurelian Lure, we took a portion of the batch and put it in two ~225L Calvados barrels. After about a year of aging, we blended the barrels, and naturally refermented the blend in bottles and kegs. Calvados Barrel Aged Aurelian Lure is unfiltered, unpasteurized, 6.4 percent alcohol by volume, 10 IBU, 3.4 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.003 (0.75 degrees Plato). It was packaged on April 18th, 2017.

This year when we were blending Funk Metal, we took a portion of the blend and refermented it with Balaton cherries. We then naturally conditioned the beer in bottles and kegs. Cherry Funk Metal is unfiltered, unpasteurized, 9.5 percent alcohol by volume, 19 IBU, 3.5 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.012 (3.0 degrees Plato). It was packaged on May 8th, 2017.
