El Regalo del Comal – Jester King


El Regalo del Comal — is a blend of 4, 3, 2, and 1 year old spontaneously fermented beer in oak barrels coolshiped at La Cruz de Comal Wines in Canyon Lake, Texas.

A little over four years ago, Jester King began a special spontaneous fermentation project with LEWIS DICKSON — the Proprietor of La Cruz de Comal Wines in Canyon Lake, Texas (about 40 miles south of Jester King). The project was based on the notion of “microbial terroir”. They wanted to see how the microbes in Lewis’s vineyard would spontaneously ferment our beer. In wine making, the concept of terroir or “sense of place” is based on a myriad of factors such as climate, soil, topography, etc. What sometimes gets overlooked in their opinion, is the contribution of the microbes in the vineyard to the character of the wine. This is especially true in wines like Lewis’s, which are 100% spontaneously fermented. The microbes on the grapes are responsible for fermentation, without the introduction of any isolated cultures from a laboratory. The wine achieves a uniqueness to its surroundings and connection to the vineyard based (at least in part) on the microbes that travel into the winery on the skins of the grapes. The tie that binds the wine to the vineyard is an invisible microbial one.
