Jester King Brewing (Austin, TX) debuts a new session ale today. Le Petite Prince Farmhouse Table Beer is is quite quaffable at a mere 2.8% abv.
Le Petite is inspired by the same Wallonian (Belgium) region table beers. They too were quite seasonable, brewed during colder months as it was beneficial to the brewing process. The low abv made these beers great to server to farmers & field workers (without getting them drunk.). They were great at hydrating in the absence of clean drinking water.
This prince starts showing up on draft handles today, and over the weekend. Bottles soon to follow.
Style: Farmhouse Ale
Hops: Czech Saaz
Malts: Pilsner, Wheat, Caramunich, Acidulated Malt
