vibe: 5 | quality: 5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5

Atmosphere - A lot to do with the weather, as consumption generally occurs outdoors. That said, on a beautiful day/night in hill country it cannot be beat. The serving bar and brewery itself are a charming metal and stone building that feel so right in this setting.

Quality - The beers speak for themselves. I enjoy nearly everything they make.

Service - Great folks working as fast as the beer allows. Large crowds can lead to longer waits. They have an outdoor pouring station to help on busy days, but sometimes demand is so high there is little that can be done.

Selection - If you enjoy farmhouse styles, you get the feeling of a kid in a candy store. Many guest bottles and draughts are also available.

Food - Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza is an adjoining, separate business. Therefore, I am not adding them to the review score of Jester King. I look forward to a day when additional food options become available, such as during special events when food trucks are on site.

Value - Like anything, you get what you pay for. Well worth the price.

An absolutely fantastic place.

Incredible atmosphere in the hill country just outside of Austin. Right next to a pizza parlor, with outdoor wooden benches everywhere. Limestone steps, fire pits, and a home country feeling. The grounds are large, and visited at night time with strung patio lights and lanterns, and of course the chandelier hanging from an outside tree.

Excellent staff with a great product. Bottle are also available for sale here to take home, but also not just their beer but even some other brews as well (some from the Austin and surrounding area).

Great vibe, and some real decent saisons and wilds produced too. Some miss the mark, but others hit the buttons wonderfully. Ciders, sodas, and lots of other options for drinkers as well besides beer. Nestled on a cool country night by the bench with the lights it reminded me of some of the beer gardens I went to in Germany at night.

Even took a bunch of non beer drinkers here and they were wowed and wanted to come back. If that doesn't say it nothing will.

I go here all the time. The beer and the setting are awesome, and the place is kid friendly to boot.

Jester King Brewery's best attribute (besides the superb beer) is its location. Leaving the city of Austin and only driving for 30 minutes you are teleported into the countryside. The brewery itself overlooks a scenic field demarcated with low but beautiful trees (especially on Friday when the brewery is less busy and the field is not yet used for parking!) Once the seasons start changing and yes that does happen in Austin there are two fire pits which once again when burning heighten your senses and enjoyment of being in a tranquil and beautiful place. For me personally seating around the fire while drinking their latest beer this week its was the Colour Five was an experience that I will not soon forget. This ability to create new memories by going to the brewery is what makes Jester King a force to be reckoned with!
