After getting label approval almost exactly one month ago, Jester King Brewery has announced release details on Cerveza Sin Frontera.
The 6.4 percent ABV farmhouse ale is a collaboration between Austin, Texas-based Jester King, Crooked Stave of Colorado and Brasserie Trois Dames of Switzerland. Cerveza Sin Frontera is composed of three different versions of the same recipe, with each version brewed and fermented in the same type of sherry barrel at the three brewery’s respective locations to see how each brewery’s unique yeast culture would impact the base beer.
“In other words, Cerveza Sin Frontera seeks to explore the impact that mixed culture fermentation has upon an identical recipe for wort (unfermented beer),” reads a post on Jester King’s website. “It highlights how fermentation that exists outside the world of pure culture brewers yeast has the ability to create unique beer with a sense of place.”
According to Jester King, Cerveza Sin Frontera will be packaged in 750ml bottles ($20) and went on sale yesterday with a three bottles per person limit. There were approximately 5,000 bottles of the “Texas version” of the beer filled.
