I really enjoy going to Jester King. On the outskirts of Austin (more into the Hill Country) which makes for a nice get away for an afternoon or early evening. Unique variety of beers, free tour is fun and informative. All seating is outdoors on picnic tables and in a sheltered area. Pizza restaurant on the premise is really good...just... More

Our son took us here with the grandchildren. I was not sure what to expect as we drove further into the country side. The first impression was not great, uneven roads, rustic buildings. But it was ideal. It was a warm day, so the children could run free in the extensive grounds while we adults enjoyed the wide range of... More

Jester King is one of the Austin area's most talked about breweries. They brew sour beer with a lot of unconventional ingredients. Nothing they make is "normal" and they are an acquired taste (so much so that I have not acquired it yet beyond maybe a couple of their offerings). That being said, I admire how creative they are and... More

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... More

The brewery is on a beautiful big, wide open piece of land. they have a pizza oven restaurant in the back which... More

While visiting family in the Austin area we stopped by the Jester King Brewery. It's a great place to hang out and try local brews. They have a varied selection mixed with local yeast. There is also an outdoor pizza place with amazing thin crust and fresh toppings! So good with beer! There is plenty of outdoor seating. There is... More

This place is out in the boonies. I would not have known about it except for a BD party there, with people who had been there before. Picnic tables under the trees. We were sweating profusely in September. Go there when the weather is cool. I tried 3 of the locally brewed beers. One was like sour apples and I... More

Fun atmosphere, good food, great beer. Lots of cider choices. Lots of families.. when we went, lots of mud, so careful if it rains around your trip time.
