Chase Healey of Prairie joined Jester King’s head brewer Garrett Crowell in Austin, Texas back in August for this brew day. Natural Union is brewed using locally sourced ingredients from Texas and Prairie’s Oklahoma home. Healey brought rosemary from Oklahoma, and Crowell chose lemon bee-balm going in a nearby Texas pasture.
The boiled wort was fermented in oak for three months, using brewer’s yeast, and bacteria from the local air and wildflowers nearby.
Jester King/Prairie Artisan Ales Natural Union will be available in 750ml bottles and draft starting Friday, January 16th. Chase Healey will be on hand at the brewery for a special release celebration on January 17th.
