2018 Release of Jester King - Cerveza de Mesquite - 1 Bottle Total
Blend #2, January 2018
We’re pleased to introduce Cerveza de Mezquite &mdash a farmhouse ale brewed with mesquite beans foraged from the Texas Hill Country!
Mesquite beans have intrigued us for quite some time. We’ve long seen them growing on the mesquite trees all around us, but up until now, we’ve yet to make beer with them. Perhaps what intrigued us the most is their aroma, which we’d describe as having a brown sugar / molasses character. In this case, we took the beans, hand-crushed them, and added them late in the boil.
The base beer was quite simple, brewed on September 14, 2016 with malted barley from Blacklands Malt, malted wheat, rolled oats, and Goldings hops. Cerveza de Mezquite was fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria. It was packaged on October 19, 2016 and 100% naturally conditioned through refermentation in bottles and kegs. At the time of packaging, Cerveza de Mezquite was 5.6% alcohol by volume, 29 IBU, 4.4 pH, and 1.002 specific gravity (0.5 degrees Plato).
Cerveza de Mezquite is dedicated to former Jester King brewer Ismael Salas
