Jester King Brewery Part & Parcel
We couldn’t be happier and more excited to introduce Jester King Part & Parcel — the first beer in modern history brewed with 100% Texas grown and malted grain. For four years now, Blacklands Malt in Leander, Texas has been on a mission to create the first Texas grown and malted barley. That mission, led by Brandon Ade of Blacklands, became a reality back in October when he delivered us a dark Munich malt called “Endeavor” made from 100% two-row winter barley. The malt was grown near Brownfield, Texas, close to Lubbock. We were honored Brandon entrusted us with making a beer from this historic malt. Part & Parcel, made from just well water, Texas barley, hops, yeast, and bacteria, is a great example of our philosophy on farmhouse ales. In this case, the land told us what beer to make, not the other way around. We didn’t set out to create a specific flavor/aroma profile. Rather, we took what was available to us from our surroundings, which then determined how the beer tasted and smelled. We didn’t “master” the beer by bending nature to our will. We took what nature gave us and presented it as straightforwardly as we could. Specifically, the barley from Brownfield was rich in protein, which develops color and flavor more easily in the kiln. According to Brandon, high protein grain is best used to make darker malts because they can develop rich melanoidin compounds and phenolics (or the “yummy stuff”, as Brandon puts it). So again, the character of the grain helped determine the type of beer we made, not the other way around. We think this embodies farmhouse brewing and was befitting the first ever Texas grown malt.
