Well, what can I say. You know itís not going to be your normal brewpub experience when they have three guys in the parking lot guiding you into parking spaces. You first pass the pizza place on your right, then the brewery on the left, with dozens of picnic tables scattered under live oak trees (they have the word "live" in the name so that you can tell that they are). The selection inside was the same as the selection at a small outside bar under a tree, with the exception of a special cask at each. You can buy bottles to take away or to drink there, and the half dozen beers they had on were all very tasty. Live music as well, a two person country band. Very nice way to spend the day, at least in good weather. Iím not sure what theyíd do in bad weather, put people in the brewery itself maybe. Awesome place.

A farm like setting that is huge and very welcoming to families and dogs. Tons of beers from themselves, from bottles and bunches of taps. Food is pizza and is pretty good. Couple of problems with this place, middle of nowhere and very crowded so slow service. A must though.

Comments: Itís a picturesque literal farmhouse brewery with tons of outdoor picnic table seating. Next door is another farm with really good pizza, a separate location called Stanleyís Farmhouse pizza. Ample free parking, tons of space for kids and dogs to run around. The beers on tap were a good mix of special edition house saisons and a few of their regular offerings. Some tap pours were poured from pitchers due to overcarbonation. A few beers were for sale only at outside stations separate from the main tasting room. Overall, the prices were normal for this type of beer and samplers were available- poured into large tulips with generous foam. However, a lot of the beer tasted phenolic and off with strange house yeast tasting over a body of dry, bland, seltzer tasting fluff. Cannot beat the ambiance, but I probably would not return for the beer.

Jester King could possibly be the second most beautfiful and atmospherically astouding brewery Iíve ever visited, behind only Stoneís ridiculously extravagant World Bistro. Jester King is on a sprawling, hilly farmstead with outside seating and sporadic wooden buildings. Iím not sure how affiliated they are with the restaurant on grounds, but there is a place to get some food just a few yards away. The beer is nothing but top notch. Theyíve carved out a niche for themselves by making beers that are undeniably unique, reflect a personality and delicious as well. Prices are really good for this kind of beer, especially by the standards Iím used to. It seemed to be in line with other spots in Austin. Sitting outside during sunset sipping on a glass of snorkel by a roaring fire could be the top highlight from my stay in Texas.

Absolutely great place to visit. Fantastic beer served in proper glasses. On a Saturday afternoon the place was packed with people which caused some inconveniences. We had to queue the beers more than 30 minutes but the wait was rewarded. Just amazing beers. 13 brews altogether was available. As all the tables are outside it was quite warm to enjoy the beers. +98įF made it a bit too hot. But still I really recommend a visit to everyone and anyone.

Visited on a trip to Austin - very very cold when I arrived, but things were in full swing in the tasting room. I just missed the last tour, but bellied up to the bar and enjoyed four ounce pours of several of their beers. They also feature a fairly extensive bottle list, their own and others. Service was wonderful, the atmosphere was friendly, and they had some great stuff for sale to-go. It doesnt get much better! Oh, there is no food, but there is this pizza place about 20 yards down the hill that makes some pretty tasty za, and the folks at JK have no problems if you bring them inside.

We had the RBWG 2012 grand tasting here. A nice old farm warehouse/building. The tasting room was fairly small with a big patio are with picnic tables. We got a real nice Jester King glass and had a lot of great beers.Thanks for hosting us.

Drove out here with my wife on a Saturday afternoon, the only time itís open. Good gravy, am I glad I found that out before hitting town and that our timing worked out. Itís basically rural, with the brewery on a hill at the end of a gravel road off Fitzhugh Rd. The brewery has a tasting room and the main operation with a cellar underneath. There are bathrooms in an Airstream trailer down the drive and a big pavilion with picnic tables. Many other tables are closer to the tasting room under trees. Another pavilion has a pizza oven and they sell bottles (got around a stupid state law!) but Iím an idiot and let two bottles I wanted sell out - learn from me, buy any bottles you want first. They give you a glass when you arrive for $10. It includes a tasting menu with the dayís offerings in the tasting room and at the tent outside where they pour from bottles. Nice glass, too! 10 options; 5 JK taps, 1 guest, and 4 bottle pours. You get 1 of each. Great deal. Staff was super friendly and cool. Answered all my annoying beer geek questions. We didnít do the tour, of which there are three during the day. We just relaxed and drank our samples. The beer is world-class. The place canít be any more relaxed, friendly, and fun. Maybe my favorite beer place to date.

Stopped by on a Friday. Quite the trek out of town, but worth it. What an absolutely drop dead gorgeous brewery!! Stunningly beautiful, with very friendly and passionate people. Great beers (both house, guest taps, and bottles to go), and the pizza place attached also looks very promising. Beyond all that, the ethos of this place and their drive to improve beer culture and laws in Texas is really special. Iím already looking forward to returning in February!!

A pretty cool ranch like brewery with lots of taps available, both guest and house. There is plenty of outdoor seating and views to be had. I didnít try it but heard multiple raves about the local pizzeria that had set up shop at the brewery. Service was good, never more than a two or three minute wait at the beer stations. I loved it, like a well developed Hill Farmstead.
