Nine months after the first batch of Reposé was released, Jester King Brewery is brewing it again.
The second incarnation of the beer will remain a farmhouse ale that is brewed with alfalfa hay, Texas Hill Country water, malted barley, aged and fresh hops and will again be aged in French brandy barrels. The first version of Reposé came in at ABV of 8.3 percent was originally brewed in February 2014 before being released released one year later on Feb. 27, 2015.
“The inspiration for Reposé came from dusty, hay-filled barns like the one near Jester King where we store our aged hops,” reads a post from the first release on Jester King’s website. “We attempted to capture some of our sensory experience of the barn by adding ingredients found in the attic to the beer. We added bales of hay to the mash and old hops that had spent many months in burlap bags to the boil.”
While a release date and total bottle count is not known at this time, Jeffrey Stuffings, Jester King founder, told Tenemu in an email the “quantity we brewed this year is similar to last time.”
