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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

This could be my favorate brewery setting in the country. Minus the live-fire gun range next door, this place is amazing! great staff that are ever so friendly (and love metal!), great setting for a farmhouse brewery and just a lovely saturday afternoon having some great beers for a very good price. There needs to be more places like this around the country. Everytime im in this area on a saturday, i will definately go back!

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.

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.

Great brewery tucked inside the hills of the area surrounding Austin. Great beers, nice staff, and beautiful scenery. A must-stop if youíre in the area. Best brewer in Texas? Quite possibly.
