New Braunfels Brewing releases HellYeah jalapeño pickle sour

It’s August. And that means it’s hot. Maybe not as hot as Hell but it sure seems like it some days.

New Braunfels took a Hellish approach to making PKL FKR this month and threw a bunch of spicy peppers in during fermentation. New Braunfels also partnered up with the kids at Off-Rhodes to bring you PKL FKR in cans. They cut up 20lbs of green jalapeños and 2 lbs of red for a special weekend full of spice and sunshine.

PKL FKR is the pickle juice sour wheat beer that New Braunfels brewed as a joke back in 2015. Now that joke’s on them as its been 60-70% of what leaves their little brewery each week.

New Braunfels experimented with aging PKL FKR on various peppers and they found that a balanced heat and spice actually improves the beer overall. It makes it more drinkable, crushable and badassable (this is new human word we learned).
