Named after the classic style (honey beer), Jester King Bière de Miel was brewed, fermented, and naturally conditioned with raw, Texas wildflower honey. We sought to take the classic style and impart a sense of place in the beer through wild fermentation with naturally occurring yeast and souring bacteria harvested from the Texas Hill Country.
Farmhouse ale with roselle hibiscus. To make Mr. Mingo, we brewed a simple saison with barley and wheat from Blacklands Malt and raw Texas Hill Country water from our onsite well. We added hibiscus flowers at the end of the boil and then later dry hopped with more. In total, we used around 1 pound of hibiscus per barrel
