Jester King, Evil Twin Brewing Unite for World’s Worst Twin

[J]ester King Brewery and Denmark’s Evil Twin Brewing have collaborated on an oak barrel fermented farmhouse ale called: World’s Worst Twin. Announced back in November, 2014, fans can now get their hands on it this week!

Evil Twin owner, Jeppe Jarnit-BjergsØ, visited Jester King this past April and was set on making a beer that was coffee-inspired, but didn’t actually use any coffee.  According to Jester King’s press release, “We used toasty, highly kilned malts in the mash to impart a roasty, chocolatey character, and Texas blueberries in the fermentation to provide some fruity notes and acidity. The beer took on additional complexity from a long, slow fermentation and maturation in oak barrels in the presence of native yeast and bacteria harvested from our land in the Texas Hill Country.”

Coffee, blueberries, chocolate-y!?  One word: Gnarly.

In case you’re wondering, Bjergso’s brother, Mikkell, owns the gypsy brewery, Mikkeller.  Both known for hardcore, seasonal, and sometimes collaborative efforts.

I've lived in Texas all my life and can't express how much I love this state. I found that I was enjoying these amazing bbq spots and drinking fantastic Texas-made beer and wanted my buddies and I to be able to share them with our readers.
