Jester King Brewery (Austin, Texas) has officially announced that it will hold a Limited Bottle Release for More Dots, a Barrel-aged Wild Ale refermented with black currants, on Black Friday, November 29.
Here to put the black currant in Black Friday, More Dots starts with a blend of Das Überkind, the brewery’s “un-fruited barrel aged wild ale . . . fermented with [its] mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria,” with an “average age of around one year.” The blended beer went on to be “racked . . . out of oak barrels and into a stainless steel tank, then refermented . . . with 2,000 pounds of black currants from Samson Farms in Everson, Washington.” Once it achieved “total dryness,” More Dots (5.8% ABV) was finally “packaged . . . into bottles and kegs for natural conditioning / refermentation.”
More Dots will release exclusively in the Tasting Room & Kitchen at Jester King Brewery at noon on Black Friday, November 29. This Limited Release offering will be available in 500ml bottles for the cost of $20 each (limit of four bottles per person). More Dots will not see distribution. Prost!
