Last year, Jester King Brewery debuted three different SPON variants, and it looks like more are on the way.
The Austin-based brewery has filed for label approval with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) for two more versions of its 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer. The first is 2016 SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese, a 7 percent ABV blend of two- and three-year-old 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer before being refermented on mourvedre and sangiovese grapes.
The second beer is 2016 SPON Albarino & Blanc du Bois, a 6.7 percent ABV blend of two-year-old 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer refermented on albarino & blanc du bois grapes.
In November 2016, Jester King debuted 2016 SPON — Method Gueuze, a blend of one-, two- and three-year-old 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer that was made using the same traditional method that produces authentic Belgian gueuze. The brewery followed that in December with the release of three different variants: 2016 SPON — Raspberry & Cherry, 2016 SPON — Peach & Apricot and 2016 SPON — Flor.
According to the labels, 2016 SPON Albarino & Blanc du Bois was blended on Sept. 29, 2016 while 2016 SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese was blended on Nov. 28, 2016. Both beers will be packaged in 375ml bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
