Jester King Brewery’s next release will be 分 桃 (pronounced Fēn táo) , a barrel-aged wild beer refermented with peaches from their home state of Texas.
Fēn táo was slated to release last year, until a last freeze destroyed the peach crop. The base beer is an ale with wild yeast, and local sour bacteria, racked to the brewery’s foudres (oak vats) with the fresh peaches from Vogel Orchard in Fredericksburg, Texas. Jester King doesn’t just add the peaches for flavoring. The peaches are refermented along with the beer, much like wine.
分 桃 will be released on Friday, September 12th at Jester King at 4pm. Limited 1 per person, per day. $16.
