Continuing the trend of rereleasing beers on a seasonal basis, Jester King Brewrey will be putting Nocturn Chrysalis up for sale for the third time this weekend.
The Austin, Texas-based brewery will be selling the third blend of Nocturn Chrysalis, its 5.7 percent ABV barrel-aged sour beer refermented with 4,000 pounds of Marion blackberries from Oregon. According to the brewery, “the beer fermented with the fruit for about three months in stainless.”
“The process and ingredients are the same as batch 2,” says a post on Jester King’s Facebook page. “However, there’s some variation based on the blend and how we ferment our beer.”
The first batch of Nocturn Chrysalis that debuted on Oct. 27, 2013 used a sour red ale as its base and incorporated Kiowa blackberries from Oglesby, Texas while the second batch on May 16, 2014 used a pale barrel-aged sour beer as its base and refermented blackberries from Oregon. While there were only 400 bottles of the original batch sold to the public two years ago, there are approximately 6,000 bottles available of the newest release.
According to a post on Jester King’s Facebook page, the newest release of Nocturn Chrysalis will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($16) and will sold starting on Friday, June 5 with a three bottle per person per day limit.
