First Annual Funk’n Sour Fest at Jester King Craft Brewery
On Saturday, October 29th from 1pm to 6pm we’ll close out Austin Beer Week 2011 with our first ever Funk’n Sour Gravity Fest at Jester King. Advance, online tickets are now available. Due to concerns over parking and having a fun, relaxed, family friendly atmosphere at beautiful Ceres Park Ranch, home of Jester King Craft Brewery, we’re limiting sales to 300 tickets.
Advance tickets for the event are $10, which includes admission to the brewery grounds, parking, a tour of the brewery and a souvenir glass (picture of glass). If the event sells out prior to 10/29, no day of event tickets will be available. If available, day of event tickets are $12 at the door. Kids are allowed in free.
You can purchase advance, online tickets at the following link:
Just remember to bring a printed copy of your ticket with you on the 29th along with a valid, photo ID. The name on the ticket must match the name on the ID.
At the fest we’ll have available for sampling an assortment of funky, sour beers from our barrel room that are naturally conditioned in German gravity kegs. Guests will be limited to six 5 ounce pours at the fest.
Here’s what we’ll be pouring:
Boxer’s Revenge – Franco-Belgian provision ale hopped with citrusy American hops and aged in wine barrels with wild yeast and bacteria. 9.4% ABV
Das Wunderkind! – A delicate farmhouse table beer with earthy hop flavor and a sour complexity from aging in French Oak wine barrels with wild yeast and bacteria. 4.5% ABV
Wild Commercial Suicide Dark Mild – English dark mild with bready, cocoa malt flavor and a complex sourness from aging in wild oak barrels for several months. 3.5% ABV
Farmhouse Wytchmaker Rye IPA – Jester King’s Wytchmaker Rye IPA fermented with French Saison yeast. Farmhouse esters and spices from the yeast meet a healthy dose of rye malt and lots of west coast hops. Dry and effervescent. 7.0% ABV
Farmhouse Black Metal Imperial Stout – Jester King’s Black Metal Imperial Stout fermented with French Saison yeast. Big flavors of roast and chocolate combined with smoke, warm alcohol and a farmhouse yeast character. 8.2% ABV
We also expect to have some guest beers in gravity kegs available for sampling. We’ll post more information on the guest beers once we have confirmation that they will be available.
Music at the event will be the funky sound of D-Maddness and food will be provided by East Side Taco. We’ll also have a face painting booth. Halloween costumes are encouraged. Bonus points if you come dressed as one of the characters on our labels!
