Creature Comforts Mutualism, a collaboration with Austin, Texas based Jester King Brewery releases on July 14th.
Both breweries experiment with wild and sour cultures, making this collaboration a no-brainer. This “Southern style” collaboration features a blend of both house cultures that really make each brewery unique.
The base beer is a pilsner, brewed with wheat and grits from Dayspring Farms (you’ll know from Dayspring) whose secondary fermentation uses the culture blend.
Mutualism was born from a shared vision with our friends at Jester King Brewery of a forgotten cask, that was once a pilsner, but had transformed due to fermentation and time. To craft this beer, we made a pilsner using local wheat and grits from Dayspring Farms, and put it through a secondary fermentation with a blend of both our house-mixed cultures. The result truly is a symbiosis of friendship, conversation, and bringing the best out of each other’s work. This is Mutualism. Enjoy.
Athens based illustrator (and incidentally tour staff member) Melissa Merrill created the artwork for this release.
Creature Comforts Mutualism is a 750 milliliter bottle offering, available at the brewery in Athens, Georgia only.
Ed Note: Reader questions submitted to Beer Street Journal unfortunately not be answered. Creature Comforts declined to speak about the collab. Per one brewer- “We made a beer with our friends. It is what it is.” -R.R.
