Jester King Montmorency vs BalatonJester King Brewery
Barrel aged beer refermented w/cherries.
Montmorency vs. Balaton or "MvB" is our barrel-aged wild ale refermented with two varieties of Michigan tart cherries (Montmorency and Balaton). To make MvB, we brew beer with well water, Texas malted barley, oats, spelt, and a blend of fresh hops and aged hops from our barn. We fermented the beer with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria and age it in oak barrels for about a year. Once mature, we referment the beer with tart cherries, then naturally condition it through refermentation in bottles and kegs.
