Jester King Part & Parcel, brewed with 100% Texas grown and malted grain, debuts on Friday, March, 10th.
For four years now, Leander, Texas based Blacklands Malt has been creating the first state grown and malted barley. In October of 2016, the project came to fruition, and they delivered dark Munich malt grown near Lubbock to Jester King, dubbed “Endeavor”.
The Endeavor malt guided the recipe. It is high-protein, which develops darker color and flavor during kilning; ultimately deciding what Jester King Part & Parcel would become.
“High protein grain is best used to make darker malts because they can develop rich melanoidin compounds and phenolics (or the “yummy stuff) – Brandon Ade, Blacklands Malt
Part & Parcel uses 100% Texas grown and malted barley from Blacklands, local well water, native yeast and bacteria, and Perle hops. Jester King laments, this might be the first SMASH beer (Single Malt and Single Hop) beer they’ve ever made.
Jester King Part & Parcel will be available in 750 milliliter bottles at the brewery in Austin, Texas starting March 10th.
Style: American Wild/Sour Ale
Availability: 750ml Bottles
