Special Tap Saturday: Jester King’s Rare Corals

Jan 2020

Hello one & all! and Happy New Year! We are excited to announce that we will be bringing back featured tappings in 2020 on the 4th Saturday of each month. The first Special Tap Saturday will feature Jester King’s Rare Corals (Batch #2).
Their first batch since spring 2017, Rare Corals is a farmhouse ale fermented with guava, mango, lime juice, lime zest, toasted coconut and chamomile. At 5.3% ABV and 18 IBU, the ale was brewed in July 2019 with well water, Blackland Malt Silver Star Texas Row Two, malted wheat, TexMalt Oats, and Fuggle hops; it was fermented with Jester King’s special yeast culture mix, then packed up in September 2019. Released in mid-October 2019, Black Star Co-op is one of the few spots you can find this brew outside of Jester King, so please don’t delay & miss out on this tasty special ale.
