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.

Great brewery. They have lots of open space that is reminiscent of a farm. Ten dollars gets you a glass, three pints of beer and a tour of their little brewery. Only real problem is that during the summer everybody wants to crowd into the tiny bar area. I love Jester King though, probably my favorite Texas brewery.

Only marking JK down by 2 points because they were not offering growlers yet when I visited, but I am told the pizza joint on site will be selling them starting January 2013 - along with the bottle list they currently offer. The brewery & tasting room are only open to the public on Saturdays between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm - check their website for details. Gorgeous old stone barn brewery/tap room had some of the mainstay brews on draft, and a small tent outdoors poured rare smaller tasters. Country band played most of the afternoon. So glad I got to visit this place. A bit of the French/Belgian countryside in the heart of Texas.

This is a great place to go on a Saturday afternoon in Texas Hill Country. Located on several acres in Austin it screams farmhouse ale brewing and this brewery lives up to that expectation. Great beer, great location, great music, and fun Austin people.

In the middle of nowhere, certainly for a city boy like me, lies Jester King. Clearly that name is known well beyond its unexpecting locality. Visiting is more of a beer pilgrimage rather than checking off another famous brewery from the must-visit list. And when I say famous, I mean in the dorky, nerdy kind of sense, as in many ways this group of men on a mission can hardly be found even in the beery underworld of nearby Austin. Its name popping up, but its beers being kept a bit elusive. Moderate production levels are certainly one reason, but perhaps more so the undisturbed focus on the refined, subtile, time-consuming and the classic European farmhouse methods. Post-modern against the grain, because its not the extreme experimentation that rules here, but the patience and understanding. It takes balls to do so, and even makes me jealous. In some respects this place could be improved, but it shouldnít. Itís already almost too perfect. It should be time and work and chance that makes this place better instead of management and control, just like their beers.

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.

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!!

Stopped in here on a friday and boy is it gorgeous. Big wide open spaces, plenty of tables and a relaxing atmosphere. The rustic buildings and views of hill country are quite cool. Everyone was pleasant. They only had 4-5 of their beers on tap but they have more in bottles. Pricing ,especially half pours was quite reasonable. I could easily spend an entire afternoon relaxing here.

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.
