Introducing Jester King More Dots
(Austin, TX) – On Black Friday (November 29th) at Noon, we’re pleased to release Jester King More Dots — barrel aged wild ale refermented with black currants!
To make More Dots, we created a blend of Jester King Das Überkind with an average age of around one year. Das Überkind is our un-fruited barrel aged wild ale brewed with well water, local grain, and aged hops, and fermented with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria. We racked Das Überkind out of oak barrels and into a stainless steel tank, then refermented the blend with 2,000 pounds of black currants from Samson Farms in Everson, Washington! After the fruit refermentation reached total dryness, we packaged the beer into bottles and kegs for natural conditioning / refermentation.
More Dots is 5.8% alcohol by volume, 10 IBU, 3.1 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.004 (1 Plato). It will be released when our kitchen and tasting room open at Noon on Friday, November 29th (Black Friday). We have about 2,300 bottles available (500ml/$20) with bottle limit of four. More Dots will only be available at Jester King aside from special events. Cheers!

Located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to making artisan ales of great depth and character. Like the small, farmhouse breweries that inspired us, we seek to embrace nature and local terroir in our brewing, giving our beers a true sense of place. We draw water from our well at the brewery to make our beer and at times call upon naturally occurring yeast from the Texas Hill Country to shape our unique flavors. We use as many organic ingredients as possible with the majority of our beer being USDA Certified Organic. We do not rush beer to market, but instead allow it to mature naturally – often in oak barrels – prior to re-fermentation in the bottle, cask, or keg.
