Jester King CRU 55 goes on sale today at the brewery in Austin, Texas. Fair warning, there is not a lot of this one.
Back in February, 2013, at the genesis of the brewery’s spontaneous fermentation program, there was an extra 130 gallon puncheon ready to be filled. Jester King tapped RU55 Barrel Aged Sour Red Ale for the barrel.
That beer has sat in the brewery’s barrel room for three years. In February, the brewery filled 900 bottles of the aged “grand cru” edition the sour red. A rare treat.
Jester King CRU 55 is a 375 milliliter bottle offering, at the brewery starting on August 12th, 2016.
