There’s a new beer from Jester King and Stillwater Artisanal Ales: Audio Palette. It is described as a spelty farmhouse ale with American hops and clocks in at 4.3 percent ABV.
The mutual love of music, specifically composer John Cage, shared by Jester King head brewer Garrett Crowell and Stillwater founder Brian Strumke lead to the name of the beer. They saw Cage’s “natural variance” and unpredictability as a parallel to the style of mixed culture fermentation that both breweries are known for. The artwork of Jester King artist Josh Cockrell also drew off of this musical inspiration to create the label.
Per the brewery, Audio Palette was brewed on October 28th, 2015 with raw Hill Country well water, malted barley, malted spelt, and hops, and was fermented in stainless steel. Approximately 3600, 750 mL bottles will be available when the brewery opens today.
