Located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to making artisan ales of great depth and character. Like the small, farmhouse breweries that inspired us, we seek to embrace nature and local terroir in our brewing, giving our beers a true sense of place. We draw water from our well at the brewery to make our beer and at times call upon naturally occurring yeast from the Texas Hill Country to shape our unique flavors. We use as many organic ingredients as possible with the majority of our beer being USDA Certified Organic. We do not rush beer to market, but instead allow it to mature naturally – often in oak barrels – prior to re-fermentation in the bottle, cask, or keg.

If you only have time to visit one place in Texas, well go visit the Alamo. Seriously what the hell are you thinking? However, if you were able to visit two places in Texas then you should hit the Alamo first and then head out to Jester King for some of the best craft beer in the state. Located in a scenic field far from the noises of the city, surrounded by nature, and a giant outdoor fire pit on the grounds of an old working farm, this is one of the last few real Texas places left. Get out here before it becomes a strip mall.

** It's remarkably near the Austin Zoo too, so if you're a parent and have just survived a day at the zoo, you can come to Jester King afterward for a drink and let the kids play outside in the field! It's a touch of a drive to get out there, but for the views of the Hill Country, it's well worth it. Once you arrive, there is parking, however it's on a gravel street/lot, so be wary if you drive something nice. It also gets to be crowded (the parking lot) on nice days, so be prepared to get adventurous with parking. Jester King brewery is on the slight hill and has both an inside and outside bar (on nice days) offering a different selection of beers each. This means that lines are never terribly long. On pretty days, you can sit on picnic benches under the oak trees and try any number of weird and unique craft beers. They even have a fire pit for cooler weather, and some outdoor games if you're lucky enough to snag one early. For food, there's an Italian restaurant just down the hill where you can pick up something to eat to carry back to your picnic table, or you can take advantage of their large barn of picnic tables if you prefer to be in the shade. Be wary that on days with good weather, the wait for food can be a few hours, so you may want to pack a picnic to eat at Jester King or in the field behind the barn.

The atmosphere is fantastic, right next to Stanley's Pizza too. I like a few of their ciders, not the hugest fan of the beers.

I visited Jester King on a Sunday afternoon. I recommend getting there early as the place gets very busy. There are lots of trees for shade and picnic tables to sit at and try the beers. They have lots of very interesting beers brewed there but they also have a large selection of beers, ciders and wines from other local places. We also took our dogs so I can say for sure it is dog friendly. I will go back. You can also get some very good pizza at Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza. A great destination for a weekend outing.

If you like beer, don’t come here. Sure the place is nice and tickles your Birkenstock-wearing, hippie predilections, but would you really trade a good tasting brew just to sit out in the woods on some vintage picnic tables inside a barn for the sake of a nice Instagram photo? Interesting factoid: They don’t use pharmaceutical grade yeast in their brews. They make their own! Naturally found! And by the taste of that junk, it’s likely to be naturally found on the Brew master’s pubes. BUT IF you believe the 4.5 rating and hype, and find yourself on the road to Jester King Brewery be sure to pack a sixer of your favorite, tried-and-true ale in a cooler to rinse the taste of their awful BUTT-juice out of your mouth afterwards.

Not a whole lot to say about the folks at Jester King except for they know their craft and it shows. On a working ranch, with plenty of open space for the kids. Bring your tethered pup too.

If you're a fan of farmhouse ales then you have no excuse for not visiting Jester King Brewery. It's a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon and try some of Austin's most unique beers. It's fascinating to learn about the locally-cultivated components (on-property well water, native yeast, etc.) that coalesce together in the brewing process. It's rather quite impressive that they produce as much as they do from such a small operation. So if you come, definitely make sure to check out the 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm tours.
