Press Release: Jester King Brewery

Jester King Mikkeller

AUSTIN, TX – Jester King Craft Brewery is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Drink'in the Sunbelt, the first of two planned collaborations between the Austin-based brewery and the world renowned Danish “gypsy brewer”, Mikkeller. 

“Drink'in” is very hoppy, flavorful session ale brewed with equal portions of malted barley and malted wheat, and heavily dry-hopped with citrusy, American Amarillo hops.  The name and inspiration come from “Drink'in the Sun”, a beer that Mikkeller has previously brewed in Europe, using a recipe remarkably similar to one that Jester King had already used for numerous test batches, that were  intended to serve as the basis for a future seasonal release.

The second collaboration between the two breweries, a special Texas edition of Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch, with the addition of smoked malt and chipotle peppers, will be taking place later this spring.

Drink'in the Sunbelt will be available for sampling at Jester King Brewery on Wednesday, March 16, from 4-pm.
