Jester King Vulgar Affection, a nearly one year old farmhouse ale, releases today.
Like all of the brewery’s offerings, Jester King Vulgar Affection has a unique story. The love of foraging local ingredients for their beer, and Fantome’s Pissenlit beer, brought this beer into focus.
In summer of 2014, Jester King took lemon beebalm wildflowers from a field nearby, and dried the leaves and flowers. In September, head brewer Garett Crowell dried fresh horehound and made tea using all the dried ingredients. That tea was added to the end of the boil.
Vulgar Affection spent six months fermenting in stainless steel tanks, and four months bottle conditioning (bottled in April, 2015).
Jester King Vulgar Affection will be available in the tap room August 7th, at 4 pm. $12 bottle, 3 bottle limit per day.
Release: 8/7/15, First Release
5% ABV, 38 IBUS
