This is one of my favorite breweries in the country. It has a winery like atmosphere. Outdoors, sometimes there is live music, booths to buy beer and merchandise. O ya, they also have some of the best sour beers in the world. If you are in Austin, Jester King is a must.

I am not the biggest Jester King fanboy. They make so many styles that I just love, but somehow many have just fallen flat for me. This visit, however is the first time I have been back since they got their new brewpub license. I must say, I am impressed. The location has always been world class, you literally are in a farmhouse brewery. On top of which the updates to the grounds since my last visit are stunning. Well, the entire location is just stunning, so that is no surprise.

There are a handful of stations you can order beer from. The main tap room, and an outside tent. You can start a tab at either one, and it will carry over to the other. Though there is even a separate station to order bottles to go (the perks of a brewpub license). That station is not connected with the other two. So you are going to have two credit card charges, unless you bring cash for everything. I can see how the lines can get long at any station, so be prepared to wait. Though, nothing was to over the top on my visit.

Anyway, I was very impressed with the Provenance, that is exactly what I have always hoped they could make, on top of Atrial Rubicite. They still, all to often release beers I don't seem to like as much as others, but when they hit, it is great. Grab a pizza next door, which is another very good beer bar, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
