    Introducing Gin Barrel Nocturn Chrysalis

    We’re very excited to introduce Gin Barrel Nocturn Chrysalis! We took our Nocturn Chrysalis Barrel Aged Sour Beer Refermented with Blackberries and aged it in a gin barrel from our friends down the road at Revolution Spirits!


    Gin Barrel Nocturn Chrysalis involved a long process to make. It was brewed in 2014, aged in oak barrels for about a year, refermented with blackberries, then aged in a gin barrel for another ten months! It was bottled on April 6th, 2016. At the time of bottling, it was 7.5% alcohol by volume, 1.001 specific gravity (0.25 Plato), 7 IBU, and 3.4 pH.


    Gin Barrel Nocturn Chrysalis was exclusively packaged in 330ml bottles. Only 550 bottles are available. It will go on sale at our tasting room at Noon this Memorial Day — Monday, May 30th with a limit of one bottle per customer (330ml x $14).

    They should release a notice specifying rules out there, outside food, bottle shares, camping etc. You know its going to happen on a monday release on a long weekend.

    sherry atrial was release on a long weekend too, on Friday, 1000 bottles 1pp and it went away in 6 Hrs so do your math. And there where at least 400 in line before opening in my opinion you will not get 1.

    Do I really want to get up at 6 am to drive from Dallas so I can stand in line for 3 hours to buy a single beer (not even 500 ml mind you), and then turn right around and drive back?

    Yes. Yes I do. (but I probably won't)

    How early did the line for Shatrial begin? Would this be as bad? Worse?

    Purely for historical context, they posted 500 bottles remain of ShAtrial at 3:30pm, and was gone by 7.

    Shatrial batch was almost twice as large though, right? I was hoping to snag regular NC for my birthday weekend in June as blackberry is my favorite fruit, but I'd be all over this if I felt I had a decent chance at a bottle.

    I just posted this:

    We appreciate and are flattered by the interest in our Gin Barrel Nocturn Chrysalis bottle release tomorrow! Please know we will be throwing all our resources at the bottle release line and expect it to move quickly. Although we accept cards, we encourage you to have the appropriate amount of cash at the ready ($14/bottle) in order to make the line run even faster. We ask you to please not show up before 8am, as that is when our parking attendants arrive. Also, please respect the fact that people live onsite at the ranch, and we do not want to disturb their peace and privacy. As normal, no outside alcohol is permitted at Jester King, and we will not sell bottles to intoxicated patrons. Thanks again for your interest. We look forward to a smooth release tomorrow.

    They handed out wrist bands and opened early. First cut off was 500, then they handed out 20 more. I was 21. I asked "are you seriously cutting it off at 520?" The answer was "yes that's it". So I walked away to get beer. About 10 people that were behind me in line are now purchasing their bottles.

    There were several others that were also told to leave the line. I'm not alone. I will definitely contact them when I figure out how to do it.

    Was about #115 in line. I was done checking out within 5 minutes of them starting sales. After we saw everyone was staying in the cash line, we switched to credit. 6 iPads, all going quick.

    Amazing job, amazing weather, and even the rain was fairly enjoyable. Cheers!
