Jester King & Mikkeller’s Whiskey Barrel Rodeo

Introducing a barrel aged edition of Jester King/Mikkeller’s Weasel Rodeo. Why weasel? The original beer was based off of Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Brunch, brewed with Kopi Luwak coffee. Weasel Barrel Rodeo is an oatmeal stout, brewed with chipotle peppers, Kopi Luwak coffee, then aged in whiskey barrels.

Inside the hops and staves of oaken whiskey barrels, magical things can sometimes happen. Even ancient enemies like weasels and rodeo clowns can overcome their conflicts and learn to work together as one. Feral monkeys are a different story, though.  It turns out that even in barrels, they’re really not much fun at all.  

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ coffee, chipotle peppers, Barrel Aged)
Hops:  Millenium, Saaz, Cascade, Columbus
Malts:  Mans Otter, dark crystal malt, brown malt, chocolate malt, smoked malt

Availability: 750 ml bottles
Arrival: August, 2012

10.1% ABV

Jester King thinks this beer could be the most expensive sold in Texas… or another, it means that the whiskey barrel aged version, which we’re calling “Whiskey Rodeo” is now going to be the most ludicrously expensive beer ever sold in the State of Texas, and this initial batch of non whiskey barrel aged Whiskey Rodeo will be a little less so. Seriously, if you’re thinking of buying a bottle of Whiskey Rodeo, start saving now. Kopi Luwak costs over $200/lb (as compared with Legendee which costs a mere $35/lb).
