On December 20th Jester King will debut its latest creation, El Cedro, at during the Austin Beer Guide Winter Release party. At 8.0% ABV this farmhouse ale is dry-hopped with Citra hops, aged with Spanish Cedar spirals and bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces yeast.
“It combines tropical, fruity hop flavor and aroma with funky, barnyard yeast character and the unique flavor and aromatics of Spanish Cedar. El Cedro is brewed with Texas Hill Country well water, 100% organic malt (Two Row, Carapils and Wheat), Millenium, Cascade, Columbus and Citra hops, farmhouse and Brettanomyces yeasts, and Spanish Cedar spirals. After primary fermentation with farmhouse yeast, El Cedro is dry hopped with Citra hops and aged for weeks with Spanish Cedar spirals. It is unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation with Brettanomyces yeast.”
Following the release party, a small number of kegs will be released to the Texas area followed by bottles in 2013.
