Raspberry Jelly King

He is a ruler, an overlord, a top dog, a crowned head. In the richly varied domain of prokaryotic microorganisms, Jelly King reigns supreme. Rather than choosing between sour or hoppy, we decided to create a beer that would be both at the same time. Showcasing the aromatic benefits of a generous dry hop (Citra, Amarillo, and Cascade), harnessing the pleasing acidity of lactic acid producing bacteria (we use a 5-strain house blend), and coming to a bottle near you without a pesky 2 year slumber in oak, Jelly King is the fermented embodiment of having your cake and eating it too.

What it smells like, what it tastes like, what it looks like: We’ve been liberal with our use of raspberry so far this year and when we decided to brew an all-raspberry version of our beloved Jelly King, we didn’t hold back. This delightful treat is bursting at the seams with raspberry pie filling and sour raspberry candies. Incredibly jammy, bright and very tart, this beer is raspberry right down to the seeds.

ABV: 4.6%
