Jester King to Use Rain Water for Brewing

August 12, 2010

We are excited to announce that Jester King will begin harvesting rain water for use in its brewing process. We recently purchased 3,000 gallon rain water collection tanks from Tank Town in Dripping Springs, which is also home to Richard’s Rain Water. We will use the roof of both the brewery and 8,000 square foot beer hall next door to catch an estimated 10,000 barrels of rain water per year for use in brewing. Prior to use, the rain water will go through ultraviolet and reverse osmosis purification.

We see using rain water for brewing at Jester King as part of a larger movement amongst craft breweries to return to our nation’s pastime of local, sustainable beer and transition away from the aberrant era of centralized, mass-produced, industrial light lager.
