THE GREAT NORTHERN SERIES 13 – LOCAL PICKUP ONLY
American Wild Ale / 6% / Fermented in Sine Qua Non red wine barrels and aged for 25 months with Jester King house culture and Texas aged hops. Conditioned on sweet and sour cherries for 4 months.
The original concept for this collaboration was to showcase the spirit of Jester King up north in our NYC brewery. We had Jeff, the founder of Jester King, fly up and bring up some of his own bottled house culture and Texas aged hops especially for this beer. To showcase this culture in the finest way possible, we brewed a simple beer with a lager-style malt base, noble hops, and Jeff’s finest aged hops, reigning from Texas. This beer was fermented in freshly dumped Sine Qua Non red wine barrels and aged for 25 months using Jester Kings house culture. Finishing off with 4 months conditioning on tart red cherries and sweet dark cherries.
