Jester King SPON 2016 Méthod Gueuze Bottle Release

Jester King Brewery in Texas is releasing their first 100% spontaneously fermented beer in November 2016. The Jester King SPON 2016 Méthod Gueuze Bottle Release will take place at Jester King Brewery in Austin Texas on November 18th, 2016.

The inspiration for SPON 2016 Méthod Gueuze came when Jester King’s brewers took a trip to Brasserie Cantillon in Belgium in 2012. Jester King wanted to see whether they could brew beer in Texas with the same meticulous process as a Belgian Lambic, with Méthod Gueuze taking over three years to brew, blend, and age before its release.

Making a beer like this requires years of dedication and attention to detail, Jester King documents the process in great detail on their blog. The brewery makes it clear that they don’t claim for this beer to be a traditional Gueuze or Lambic, which are traditionally produced in Belgium. Instead this is a beer made under the same specifications of a Gueuze but in Texas instead of Belgium. The meaning behind the term Méthod is that this beer is made in the same traditional method of making an authentic Gueuze only in a different region.

The details for the Jester King SPON 2016 Méthod Gueze Bottle Release are below, from their blog post on the release:

Between the four blends, we have approximately 4,700 bottles 375ml and 4,800 bottles 750ml for a total of approximately 9,500 bottles. Half of the 375ml and half of the 750ml bottles will be released on Friday the 18th and the other half on Saturday the 19th. The bottle limit is one bottle per customer per day 375ml and one bottle per customer per day 750ml, for a total of two bottles per customer per day (one 375ml and one 750ml).

In summary, bottles to go looks like the following:
