Belt’s Beer Garden: King Me

Related Topics: Jester King Brewery

Jester King Brewery is an authentic farmhouse brewery from Austin, Texas that began back in 2010 and initially made it big with their amazing Farmhouse and Wild Ales. They now sit on a massive 165 acres of land, are completely solar powered, and have a sweet layout that I really want to visit one day.

It’s rare to find their stuff near me but today, in honor of Oktoberfest, I have a German-style lager from them that I cannot wait to try - their Munich-style Helles lagerbeer.

They fermented this Helles in horizontal tanks for over a month (between five and eight weeks), which gives lagers a much cleaner body and really allows the yeast to settle.
