A Note on This Beer
If you were to stroll through Austin, TX, in search of a crisp, refreshing Farmhouse Ale, the locals would point you to none other than Jester King.
And, for good reason — they were voted the fourth best small brewery in the world by the readers of Craft Beer & Brewing!
But, if you were hankering for a fruity cocktail, you might pass this brewery by — which would be a crying shame. Because, for the craft fan who can equally appreciate a Farmhouse Ale and a scratch-made Strawberry Daiquiri, today’s Mr. Mingo - Strawberry Edition is a delicious blend of both worlds.
To make it, the brewers started with their original Mr. Mingo — a simple, approachable Saison brewed with barley and wheat from Blacklands Malt and raw Texas Hill Country well water. They also dry-hopped it with real hibiscus flowers!
For the Strawberry Edition, the brewers added allspice in the boil and Madagascar vanilla beans in the secondary fermentation. They packed it with a mind-boggling 1,000 lbs of local Texas strawberries per batch, and fermented the berries to dryness with their house mixed culture.
The resulting brew is what @Chris G. calls a “complex floral fruity bomb... slightly tart with a strawberry vanilla finish... very refreshing and crushable.” And @Drew E. raves, “Creamy vanilla up front with tight bubbles of funk on the finish.”
It’s certainly more complex than any Daiquiri we’ve ever tried! And, with its easy-drinking 5.4% ABV, you can sip this strawberry dream until the sun sets low behind the desert canyons . . . or, wherever you happen to be.
