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. +98°F made it a bit too hot. But still I really recommend a visit to everyone and anyone.

Very enjoyable. (With great exception of the HEAT). Nice spot in hill country. Pleasant people. Presume most if not all Saturdays have bottle shares and though I did not involve myself, it looked pretty involved. Good beers, a few guest taps. Come in cooler weather!

A destination brewery in the making. Located in the beginnings of TX Hill Country, Jester King features the kind of strange natural beauty that makes the West intriguing. People there are great, selection is generally solid and features a few non-JK brews, and pricing is fantastic. While the brewery doesn’t serve food, nearby Stanley’s Farmhouse PIzza cooks a mean pie. Tips: stand in the true taproom to survive the summer heat. If no space is available inside, sit under a fan in the pavilion for the next coolest spot. If both fail, go to your car and soak up some A/C, cause it’s freaking hot! Also, try to get a tour from Josh to enjoy some great color in describing the brewery’s ways. Finally, make sure you see the barrel room!

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 didn’t 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.

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.

Drove out here with my wife on a Saturday afternoon, the only time it’s open. Good gravy, am I glad I found that out before hitting town and that our timing worked out. It’s 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 I’m 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 day’s 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 didn’t 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 can’t be any more relaxed, friendly, and fun. Maybe my favorite beer place to date.

This place is so awesome. Terrific laid back ambience, super nice staff, very generous pours of 6 beer for $10 and a free glass that they charge $7 for. A handful of picnic tables and a nice short tour of the facility.
