I’m not going to lie to you. You don’t deserve that. My week has been a scheduling hellscape, the likes of which has never been seen before. Dear readers, you should feel honored that I prioritized your social media addiction above my own health and well being. This is The Weekly Buzz. You’re welcome.

Lots of grain means lots of beer!

Mark your calendars!

I could have won this race…

Enjoy patio season while you still can!

Do you have what it takes?

Do you have the guts?

Get your hands dirty for a good cause!

Just because dogs are the best…

Not gonna lie… I mostly just want a doughnut.

It’s going to be one hell of a party!

There’s no downside here!

Who wants to send me some?

INTRODUCING JESTER KING TERROIR PROJECT — We're very happy to introduce Jester King Terroir Project! — Terroir Project is collaborative endeavor organized by our friends at Firestone Walker Brewing Co. in Paso Robles, California. It involves stretching the limits between wine and beer by co-fermenting 51% wort with 49% native grapes. — This co-mingling of "grains and grapes" represented a fun new approach for us. We typically take mature, barrel-aged beer and referment it with grapes. In this case, we blended wort and grapes together at the outset of fermentation and let them co-ferment. This simultaneous approach yielded some really interesting and exciting results that we're very happy to share! — Our wort consisted of pilsner malt and wheat, and our grapes were native-grown Syrah from northeast Texas (Sulphur Bluff). We racked the blend of wort and grapes into oak barrels for a slow fermentation that lasted 10 months. Our Head Brewer Averie Swanson writes, "The finished beer is really nice! Very wine-like and dusty. The oak presents as vanilla and integrates nicely into the beer. It has a lovely pink color!” — Terroir Project is 6.7% alcohol by volume. It will be released this FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19TH AT 4PM. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750ml/$24) at our restaurant and tasting room. We only have about 1,000 bottles available with a bottle limit of two per customer per day. Aside from special events, Terroir Project will only be available at Jester King. — Special thanks to our friends at Firestone Walker for inviting us to be part of the inaugural Terroir Project! It's really special for us to collaborate with a brewery that inspired us to make beer in the first place and has been a continual source of support and inspiration.
