Last Friday, Jester King Brewery released its 2017 SPON — Three Year Blend, which blends three vintages from 2014, 2015 and 2016 — all of it 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer.

JKB founder Jeffrey Stuffings explains on the official blog: “Our goal is to make beer inextricably linked to our time, place, and people by harnessing the microflora, climate, and ecology of the Texas Hill Country.”

JKB says each of the 2017 blends, all made by Head Brewer Averie Swanson, contain roughly 17% three-year-old beer, 33% two-year-old beer, and 50% one-year-old beer.

The spontaneous process is fascinating, so here’s a short film by Joe Salinas in which Jeffrey Stuffings talks about how it works and the philosophy that guides the team at Jester King Brewery:
