Jester King Brewery (Austin, Texas) announced today that it will officially begin the release of No Whalez Here Farmhouse Witbier on Friday, October 20.
No Whalez Here is a Farmhouse-style Witbier that was “brewed on June 12, 2017 with Hill Country well water, White Horn pilsner malt from Blacklands, malted wheat, raw wheat, flaked wheat, Carafoam malt, rolled oats,” and an undisclosed hop bill. To give the beer a distinctive Witbier essence, the brewers went local by adding “Texas coriander, house-dried Texas tangerines, and hand-harvested lavender from the flower beds in front of the brewery.” This brew was then finished off by being “fermented in a horizontal stainless steel tank with [a] mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria.”
No Whalez Here will officially debut in Jester King’s Tasting Room on Friday, October 20 at 4 p.m. The brewery has about 2,300 bottles of this offering available, and it is expected that “a portion of the batch” will be distributed. If you live in an area that typically sees Jester King offerings on shelves (looking at you, Florida), keep an eye out for this one to possibly turn up at your favorite craft beer spot. Prost!
