Bug Farm | Jester King Brewery

ABV: 5.8%
Style: Farmhouse Ale - Other
Description: Bug Farm is a revisitation of our 2014 Hibernal Dichotomous recipe. We pressed juice from Texas watermelons, refermented it in farmhouse ale brewed with rosemary, lavender, and mint, and then naturally conditioned it through refermentation in the bottle . . We packaged Bug Farm back in September of 2019. During the bottle conditioning phase, the beer became "ropey", developing a somewhat viscous texture on the palate. In our experience, the ropiness goes away after several months of conditioning as Brettanomyces yeast works its magic. As of today, Bug Farm is presenting beautifully. The color from the watermelon has faded, but the flavor is delightful, and we believe it's a fitting tribute to its forbearer!
