New Release: Jester King 分 桃 Fen Tao
The Jester King brewery never ceases to amaze any of us Texas beer enjoyers. Release after release shows what what kind potential there is in the art of beer making. It showcases the artisanal approach that Jester King puts into each creation. The release of Jester King 分 桃, or Fēn táo for the rest of us, is another example of harnessing the artistry of beer making at its highest levels.
From the flavor profile to the art used on the bottle, this complex creation encompasses stories of love, patience and relationship between products of nature and the people who will enjoy it.
Jester King describes it as a “barrel-aged wild beer refermented with peaches.” Those peaches are home grown in Fredericksburg, Tx, and were originally meant to be used for this product a year ago. A freeze occurring late 2013 ruined many peach crops that would have been harvested for this latest release.
