"The original recipe for Bug Farm was the brainchild of former Jester King Head Brewer Garrett Crowell, now the founder of Yokefellow Beer. The name "Bug Farm" came from what we wrote on the head of the barrels containing a portion of the original beer blend.
We packaged Bug Farm back in September of 2019. During the bottle conditioning phase, the beer became "ropey", developing a somewhat viscous texture on the palate. In our experience, the ropiness goes away after several months of conditioning as Brettanomyces yeast works its magic. As of today, Bug Farm is presenting beautifully. The color from the watermelon has faded, but the flavor is delightful, and we believe it's a fitting tribute to its forbearer!"
